Ticket to Ride: Inside the Beatles' 1964 Tour That Changed the World
Synopses & Reviews
This exclusive CD version of The New York Times bestseller by an award-winning author fulfils every Beatle-lover’s wildest dream: to get an inside peek and go backstage with the Fab Four. Larry Kane—then only 21 years old—was the only U.S. journalist who accompanied the band every step of the way on their groundbreaking North American tour. He saw and heard it all; not only was he granted exclusive interviews with the four every day, but he looked on as they met their idols (Elvis) and witnessed the sex, drugs, and rock ‘n’ roll that inevitably accompanied their fame.
"While there have been a number of books written about the Liverpool band that lead the 'British invasion' in the 1960s and the astounding Beatlemania that lives on today, Kane's offers an intimate eyewitness account of the group's North American tours in 1964 and 1965. With a foreword by Dick Clark, this book is the real deal. Kane relates his travels as a journalist with the supergroup, offering the good times and the bad as he slumped alongside the boys from venue to airport to venue. With perfect pitch and tone, Kane reads like the steadfast news anchor that he is now. The enticing and intimate stories that Kane provides are the real stars, offering lifelong fans a slightly different view of their heroes. A Penguin paperback (Reviews, May 26, 2003). (Sept.)"
