A read Shout!, but A wasn't so big on it, Phillip Norman uses some pretty insane sentences, and he seems to like John the best, which annoyed me quite a bit, and if A'm remembering correctly, he baged Paul alot, which is a bit unperfesionals, in my opinion.

 

The Beatles book A own are:

The Beatles Anthology – The Beatles

The Beatles Gear – Babiuk

Fab: An Intimate Life of Paul McCartney – Sounes

Many Years From Now – Miles

You Never Give Me Your Money – Doggett

John – Cynthia Lennon

Shout! – Norman

Revolution In The Head – MacDonald

I, Me, Mine – George Harrison

In His Own Write – John Lennon

Postcards From The Boys – Ringo Starr

Chronicles – Lewisohn

 Here, There and Everywhere – Emerick

ONE MINUTE YOU'RE DEFENDING THE WHOLE GALAXY, AND SUDDENLY, YOU FIND YOURSELF SUCKING DOWN DARJEELING WITH MARIE ANTOINETTE AND HER LITTLE SISTER.!

I recently got Can't Buy Me Love by Jon Gould and Lennon Revealed by Larry Kane.

Bagging Paul is kind of a trend in Beatles books, unless they are about Paul himself. Then the books bag John.

Related to that: Are there any Beatles books (besides Anthology, I think) that don't bag anyone?

If I seem to act unkind, it's only me, it's not my mind that is confusing things.

Lewisohn's Chronicle bags the whole group a couple of times (Magical Mystery Tour, Performance skills in 1966, Pete Best), but not just one person.

"Magical Mystery Tour" and that whole Pete Best thing deserve to be bagged. I'm not sure about their '66 performance skills (they're a lot better than mine would be!). But at least it's not "John was an angelic genius from heaven, and Paul was some random guy who could write a couple of decent songs." Or that "Mozart-Salieri" thing.

Please don't go any farther. It brings back nightmares of that terrible Amadeus movie from music class.

Did you know that in real life, Salieri and Mozart were buddies? And Salieri wasn't jealous? 

And that I got a 9?

I did actually. My music teacher stressed that fact many times.

Me Too!!!

I knew that. But that made a killer movie. (I'm sorry you didn't like it MSK)

 

I really really hate that quote. I hate the fact that even he's frigging Paul McCartney, he has to live under John's shadow. They were Lennon HYPHEN McCartney. They were at the same level. blue-meanieblue-meanie

I like the emphasis you put on the hyphen, mith. :D 

I can totally imagine a conversation:

Hardcore Beatles Fan #1: It's LENNON-McCartney. See? Lennon is first.

Hardcore Beatles Fan #2: No, it's Lennon-McCartney. Lennon HYPHEN McCartney. They are equal.

Hardcore Beatles Fan #1: Yeah, but John is first.

Hardcore Beatles Fan #2: Well, you know what? On Please Please Me, all the songs were credited to "McCartney-Lennon." McCartney was first. It doesn't matter.

 

Strangely, my computer will accept "McCartney" but not "Lennon." Maybe it's because I type "John" more than "Lennon."

Hardcore Beatles Fan #3: Actually both are the same. John says I Am The Walrus, but later he said The Walrus was Paul. So he's Paul and Paul is him. Paul is John and John is Paul. You know what I mean??? a-hard-days-night-ringo-13

Kind of. The John-Paul Paul.John thing has been in my mind for a while.

 

Actually I was thinking of a story that mirrored the Beatles life but in an alternate universe, where they were warriors or something like that, a messed up world that they had to heal. Something like Paul Atreides did in Arrakis. But then, they heal that world, but they totally screw up their bond, so they break up to never get together again. The world was saved, but they were doomed to be apart. And then the leader dies first, their spiritual guide next, the healer at the end, and finally the rock goes home. In that alternate world, death was pain for the ones staying there, but it was freedom for the ones who passed. And then, they are reunited in a nice garden, and then they welcome their friend saying "Are you ready for the next life?". Everybody is happy to go there, but then, the rock says with a worried face to the leader "But, would you find us there?" and he says "I'll find you, and you will find the rest".

 

Those are the kind of things that I think of when I go to work while listening to the Beatles. Of course the ideas get crazier when I have tacos with chorizo for breakfast. a-hard-days-night-ringo-7

 

OMG 9! a-hard-days-night-ringo-6

going back to the topic here. I have read:

You Never Give Me Your Money- Doggett

Paul Is Undead- Goldsher (yeah the one where they were zombies)

never finished reading: The Beatles- Spitz

 

I lack on Beatle readings. However, I did read Miss O'Dell. Has anybody read it? It's about a woman Chris O'Dell and how she lived through the 1960s and 70s working for the Beatles, the Stones, Bob Dylan, etc. She goes on about her friendship with George, Pattie, and Mo. George wrote a song about her called Miss O'Dell. It sorta seems like a fanfiction type of book though for some reason. It only bothered me I have never heard of her in any other book or media source.

Well we all shine on like the moon, the stars, and the sun.

She was a secretary at apple. Here's an interview with her, which seems a tad interesting, if also self-serving.

Well, Paul was on drugs when he thought of that movie. a-hard-days-night-george-10

But the way they dumped Pete Best was just dishonorable.
