From his first encounter with the sturggling group in 1961, through their meteoric rise, to his tragic, untimely death in 1967, Brian Epstein was in many ways the heart and soul of the Beatles. Much more than simply their manager, confidant, and group guru, Epstein helped create a once-in-a-lifetime phenomenon. "A Cellarful of Noise," Epstein's long out-of-print autobiography, gives readers the inside story of his discovery and management of the world's most famous rock 'n' roll band.
From their initial struggles to their wild rocket ride to the pinnacle of success, this true story includes: How a request for a record led to the discovery of the Beatles; Why Ringo Starr replaced the original Beatle drummer; How Paul McCartney was nearly blinded by a fan; and hundreds of other fascinating little-known facts of Epstein's life with the Beatles, Gerry and the Pacemakers, and other top stars.This new edition of "A Cellarful of Noise" features an introduction by world-renowned Beatles expert Martin Lewis, which, along with Epstein's own words, creates a compelling insightful exploration of the life and times of a gifted man who had an ear for genius.
Setting out on the long winding road to Beatle enlightenment and avoiding any pot-holed zebra crossings along the way........ This is a guide to the best and most highly regarded books* about The Beatles. Of course there will always be some debate about what makes a good Beatles book but these are based on many reviews and also feedback from hardcore Beatle fans. Your feedback is welcomed. *First Hand Accounts books vary in quality but I have listed for historical interest.
