Hi Folks,

Myself and Terry are pleased to announce our ebook Ringo Starr And The Beatles Beat (Part 1) is now available on the Apple iBooks, Amazon Kindle, Nook and Kobo stores!

Samples are available to view and download, but here’s a very brief summary of the book – 

“With over 80 years drumming experience between them, Alex Cain and Terry McCusker explore the percussive elements of The Beatles songbook, providing intuitive descriptions and detailed drum notation of the drumming and percussion in every original Beatles release. 

With comprehensive song by song analysis, there’s something for the drummer and non-drummer alike – discover how Ringo’s soulful, sympathetic and instinctive drumming interacted with the personalities of his bandmates and recording engineers to shape the Beatles’ beat.

Part One of Ringo Starr and The Beatles Beat covers the years 1962-1966, from ‘Love Me Do ‘ to ‘Tomorrow Never Knows ‘. Foreword by Don Powell of Slade.” 

And here’s a few links – 

iBooks

Kindle

Kobo

Nook (Barnes & Noble)

 

Plus a few screenshots to wet your appetite?

Yay! Book published! I remember talking to you about it while you drove me and the one and only Beatles Bible Ron Nasty around Liverpool.

I will nudge people to use the Amazon link in my signature to purchase the book to help Joe out.

Anyone at the Beatles Convention at the Adelphi Hotel in Liverpool this Sunday (30 August)?

Come and say “hello” to us on our stall, have a look at the book, and drool over some fantastic Ludwig Oyster Black Pearl “Ringo” drums 🙂

This book looks pretty interesting , I always thought of ringo as a percusionist instead of just  a plain drummer. Always trying to get the best out from his kit, tambourine, maraca or whatever… Just look at how he plays tambourine in the movie help! In the “got to hide your love away” scene, very proffesional. And of course his creative drum patterns going through the whole kit as the percussion set from an orchestra ( a day inthe life, for the benefit of mr. Kite… ) …. I’ll get a copy sooner o later, no doubts : )

I have my signed copy. @Ron Nasty’s copy is sitting in a postal box somewhere in the UK. I hope it gets delivered to him one of these day/months/years. How could the postal system lose a box between Liverpool and London????

If it’s anything like the Irish postal system:

 

DON’T READ THIS RN

It’s now some postal worker’s Christmas present

 

The book does look very impressive OBP, it’ll be put onto my list!

I once sent something to my cousin that should have gotten to her in three days, but she didn’t get it for nine months, so I’m sure RN will get it some day. ):

In addition to fab reviews and ratings from Amazon customers, we’ve had a great review from the British Beatles Fan Club.

The guys chat to the Something About The Beatles podcast about the book, lots of anecdotes and interesting stuff! A very interesting diversion comparing Pete Best with not just Ringo but Paul?!

Just started reading this book this week, and I’m loving it! It’s really fantastic. As a drummer for many years, I find the stories and comprehensive breakdowns of percussion in the songs incredibly interesting, yet you don’t have to be a drummer to appreciate this book at all. Any fan of Ringo, The Beatles, drums/percussion, Liverpool history or 50s & 60s music can definitely get into this. I highly recommend it.
