In the summer of 1964, the Beatles took America by storm and changed rock ’n’ roll forever. In this first-ever chronicling of that revolutionary tour from the inside, author Ivor Davis serves up the stories behind the stories as only an insider can. In the rowdy and riotous recollections of The Beatles and Me On Tour, Ivor Davis, then a reporter for the London Daily Express, shares his unrestricted access to the Liverpool lads as a member of the Beatles entourage.
From inside the band’s hotel suites to the concert arenas to the private jets, the madness and magic plays out through Davis’ personal accounts of hanging with the Beatles for thirty-four jam-packed days. Go behind the scenes for all-night Monopoly games with John Lennon, witness the Beatles’ legendary living-room jam with Elvis, and be there the night Bob Dylan introduces the band to pot. Roll up for this definitive account of the legendary band at a critical moment in the history.
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.
