In memory of Sean Body. The Beatles could be forgiven for doubting the value of celebrity.
In memory of Sean Body. One of the quartet was shot dead outside his apartment building by a man who claimed to be a fan. Another was attacked brutally in his home; within two years, he too was dead. A third was involved in a marital breakdown that exposed every corner of his life to the public gaze. The fourth found it so difficult to survive outside the group that he lost himself in alcohol and cocaine. These four men created music of such joy and inventiveness that it captured the imagination of the world, and has never lost its grip.
Doggett's obsession with the Beatles goes back to his childhood and their glory days. He presents a mass of detail about their music, individual characters, wives, lovers, friends, spiritual explorations, drug use and business dealings, in an engaging narrative. He treads carefully around thorny issues of love and money, yet paints a convincing picture of the relationship between Lennon and Yoko Ono and its impact on the financial and legal disputes which trailed success
Peter Doggett is an excellent rock journalist and writer.
Peter Doggett is an excellent rock journalist and writer. The opening chapter 'Prologue: 8th December 1980' sets the scene for a completely engrossing book and is worth the price of admission alone. In this chapter he conjures up brilliant ways of explaining how Lennon's death affected the remaining Beatles - and the entire world. Almost a slightly melodramatic writing style at times, but he never overdoes it, and the subject matter benefits. I wonder if anyone has ever taken an estimate on the total wealth of the Beatles enmpire has been since 1963? It is hard to imagine there ever again being such an influencial musical and cultural force as the Fabs.

This is a book that simply must be read if you are a fan of the Beatles, or a music fan in general. The lasting influence of the band simply cannot be measured in quantifiable terms. But their story was not all fun and games.
Now, for the first time, You Never Give Me Your Money tells the dramatic story of the personal and business rivalry that has dominated the Beatles' lives since 1969. It documents the bitter struggles between the Lennon and McCartney families. It charts the shifting relationships between four of the most famous figures of the 20th century as the strive to establish their identities beyond the Beatles. And it chronicles the transformation of their multi-media company, Apple Corps, from a bastion of 1960s counter-culture into a corporate behemoth, ready to launch lawsuits at anyone straying.
I only give you my situation, Я лишь описываю свою ситуацию. And in the middle of investigation I break down. You only give me your funny paper, Показываешь мне одни бумажки? And in the middle of negotiations you break down. И посредине наших разговоров сникаешь. И в разгар обсуждения теряю самообладание. Out of college, money spent, Из колледжа вылетел, деньги потрачены. See no future, pay no rent. Будущее туманно, за аренду платить нечем. 1. All the money's gone, nowhere to go. Денег ни копейки, и некуда деваться. Any jobber got the sack. I never give you my number

It ultimately tore them apart, yet ensured they were bound together in decades of legal wrangles. In fact, the four’s musical genius was matched only by their breathtaking talent for unwise business decisions.
