Also, Norman never talked to the Beatles, so no interviews with them, which is like writing a book about the New Testament without the Jesus spoken words highlighted in red or italicized.
Aug 24, 2017 TUDOR^QUEEN rated it it was amazing. Also, Norman never talked to the Beatles, so no interviews with them, which is like writing a book about the New Testament without the Jesus spoken words highlighted in red or italicized. The book is aptly named: It’s about the Beatles and their times (. their influence on the cultural zeitgeist). Any scholarly or in-depth study of the music sadly takes a back seat. The Music: Take Norman’s opinions about the Beatles music with a huge grain of salt

Now brought completely up to date, this epic tale charts the rise of four scruffy Liverpool lads from their wild, often comical early days to the astonishing heights of Beatlemania, from the chaos of Apple and the collapse of hippy idealism to the band's acrimonious split. It also describes their struggle to escape the smothering Beatles’ legacy and the tragic deaths of John Lennon and George Harrison.

Philip Norman is an old hand with Beatles-based scholarship, and his massive bio, Paul McCartney: The Life, provides a nice opportunity to survey those shelves of Beatles lit. Here’s a look at 10 of the other best Fab Four.
The standard Beatles history posits the star-crossed Stuart Sutcliffe as John Lennon’s best friend, until his tragic death in 1962, whereupon Paul McCartney became Lennon’s chief mate, but Pete Shotton better fit the bill. He was there first, romping with Lennon as schoolboy tearaways, and in on all the things that boys do with each other: lots of circle jerks, incidentally, in this candid, and very Northern memoir.
com User, February 4, 2006. With new competition with Bob Spitz's "The Beatles", "Shout!" still stands strong, and the revweiws back that up. You'll learn everything you wanted to know about The Beatles and more. An accurate, and incredibly interesting biography of the biggest band ever.
Colleagues and friends did their best to talk me out of choosing the Beatles as subject matter. Don’t waste your time, they said. The story has been told too many times.
THE CLASSIC CHRONICLE OF THE BEATLES -- THEIR MUSIC, THEIR LIVES, THEIR TIMES
From their primitive first chords to the huge success of the Beatles Anthology, the Beatles have been an integral part of our culture and our consciousness for over thirty-five years. Shout! The Beatles in Their Generation tells the extraordinary story of the rise of four scruffy boys from Liverpool to beings more adored, more influential -- and in many ways more troubled --than any in the history of popular entertainment. It is also a penetrating social history of our time, based on an incredible wealth of material -- eyewitness accounts, interviews, stories withheld from the press and public -- that was available exclusively to the author.
Rich in detail, anecdotes, and background, with 100 stunning photographs, Shout! takes us from the wild, often comical days at the beginning in Liverpool to the life and death of Stu Sutcliffe, the brilliant boy known as the "fifth Beatle"; from the psychedelic triumph of Sergeant Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band to the band's embrace of Indian music and spirituality; from the brilliantly unified sounds of Abbey Road to Paul's desperate attempts to form a final comeback concert.
Riveting, Enlightening, Heartbreaking, Shout! Is A True Epic.
