The book is a re-edition of A Secret History: an Inside Account of The Beatles' Rise and Fall.

Alistair Taylor was the personal assistant on Brian Epstein, aka Mr Fix-it.

 

I bought the book today but haven't started it yet. I was just wondering if anybody else has read it, and what their thoughts were?

"Life is what happens to you while you're busy making other plans."

"When I cannot sing my heart, I can only speak my mind."

I haven't. Take what he says about Raymond Jones with a pinch of salt though - from what I can gather (from Ray himself and Liverpool writer Spencer Leigh) Taylor told a few mistruths about that whole episode, claiming he was in fact RJ. I don't know anything about the book itself though.

Can buy me love! Please consider using these links to support the Beatles Bible: Amazon | iTunes
Or buy my paperback/ebook! Riding So High – The Beatles and Drugs

Don't miss The Bowie Bible – now live!

Wasn't Alistair Taylor the one Klein fired? I read that somewhere, but I forget where.

Yes, Klein did fire Taylor during the firing spree of 1969.

As if it matters how a man falls down.'
