In this autobiography Billy J. Kramer (born William Ashton) tells his rags to riches story, from his working class childhood in Liverpool to the racy world of international pop music. Managed by Brian Epstein, produced by George Martin, and friend, confidante and colleague of the Beatles, Kramer gives a definitive insider's account of the birth of the Liverpool sound and also the "British Invasion" of the USA. But there are dark secrets in the Kramer story. Before he reached his twenties, he was in the grip of drugs and alcohol, and there were constant tensions between him and his backing band, the Dakotas.
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.
