The Beatles: The Biography | Bob Spitz
11 posts | 9 read | 4 to read
As soon as The Beatles became famous, the spin machine began to construct a myth--one that has continued to this day. But the truth is much more interesting, much more exciting, and much more moving. In this bestselling book, Bob Spitz has written the biography for which Beatles fans have long waited. 32 pages of b/w photos.

Just watched #yesterday, oh my god what a horrible flick. Truly strong premise sent straight to hell by its length and dialogue. Seriously cut 75% and it would have been a perfect short for TIFF. Don't take my word for it, go see it for yourself. You might end up liking it where I didn't. The only thing I truly liked about it was the music and Lily James. Oh and that one spoilery thing.

Probably the best one-volume account of the Fab Four's career, though American Spitz makes countless tiny errors in his account of the early days due to his unfamiliarity with British slang and idiom. He's much better when the story goes global, clear-eyed and fair in dealing with Yoko (always a tricky area). Until Mark Levisohn finally publishes Volumes 2 and 3 of his magnum opus this will do perfectly well.

George Stanley. Julia. Mimi. Freddie. Taffy Williams. Twitchy Dykins. Pete Shotton. These names are as familiar to me as the minor prophets to a Lindisfarne monk lol

#HeyJune #Yesterday

I bought this tank top yesterday (get it?) At Target. It has been so much fun following along with the Beatles themed prompts, even though I lost momentum towards the end of the month. But I don‘t feel too bad because I was juggling two photo challenges this month and have completed more prompts than on any prior challenge I‘ve participated in.

1. The tagged book. Was a monster so it gave a pretty great history of The Beatles. Definitely some Yoko blaming in it though
2. Depends on my mood but…The Beatles, NSYNC, JT, David Cook, The Eagles, etc
3. Hm…NSYNC/JT are great performers and always put on a great show. Paul McCartney though was amazing! He's so damn talented
4. So many but lately it's been songs from the La La Land soundtrack

Finally reading this bad boy. It's followed me around the world to sit on various bookshelves for... 13 years. It's wonderful although dense (many pages, tiny font!). Really enjoyable read, and it's reawakening my teenage Beatlemania. I've had lots of intense dreams about Paul McCartney lately 🤷🏻‍♀️ #thebeatles #music #corgi

Picked this up again. Was 200ish pages in when I stopped last year to jump into something which led to something else etc etc. Anyway, the boys are in Hamburg. Let's see what mischief they get into...
