When They Were Boys: The True Story of the Beatles' Rise to the Top

When They Were Boys: The True Story of the Beatles' Rise to the Top Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This is the story of the Beatles harrowing rise to fame: focusing on that seven-year stretch from the time the boys met as teenagers to early 1964, when the Fab Four made their momentous first appearance on The Ed Sullivan Show. From the boys humble beginnings in Liverpool, to the cellars of Hamburg, When They Were Boys includes stories never before told, including the heartbreaks and the lucky breaks.

Included are an eyewitness account of that first meeting between Lennon and McCartney, the inside story of how Ringo replaced Pete Best, an exploration of the brilliant but troubled soul of manager Brian Epstein, and the real scoop on their disastrous first visit to Germany and the death of Stu Sutcliffe. With an eye for life in Liverpool during the 50s and 60s and over 65 eyewitness accounts from those closest to the Beatles, Larry Kane brings to life the evolution of the group that changed music forever.

Review:

"[O]ne of the pleasures of this book is its brightness, written not just for the converted, but for anyone who has even a vague interest in this slice of history. A shimmering, occasionally breathless report that should fill in many of the cracks in readers knowledge of pop-music history." Kirkus Reviews

Synopsis:

Never before told stories of the Beatles seven-year rise from teenage dreamers to icons, both the heartbreaks and lucky breaks.
