A Band Reviewed
In 1960, John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison, Stu Sutcliffe and Pete Best first played together as The Beatles. On 5 October 1962, The Beatles with Sutcliffe and Best out and Ringo Starr in released their debut single, Love Me Do. The subsequent seven years saw them revolutionise Sixties music and leave their mark indelibly stamped right through pop culture.The Beatles: A Band Reviewed tells the story of The Beatles through the news items, reviews and interviews that appeared in two of Britains most respected newspapers. From the heyday of Beatlemania and the groundbreaking albums to the mixed successes of the solo years, it covers the key events. It also includes lesser well-known stories, such as that of Victor Keegan, a Guardian reporter, who received hundreds of phone calls, night and day, from people asking if they could speak to Sgt J Pepper. As fresh and revolutionary as the time in which they were written, this unique writing from the actual gigs and events that defined The Beatles is a unique and poignant history.
