    The Bob Spitz biography of The Beatles was the first musical biography that I read a few years back Not sure that I would be all that interested and yet having read some very positive reviews, I picked up this one and had a really hard time putting it down The story is absolutely fascinating from their humble beginnings, the sad and shameful way they disposed of Pete Best for Ringo S

    Holy crap is this book long And informative Also fun to read, so yay Here s some fun stuff I learned 1 They all had gonorrhea when they recorded Love Me Do 2 John was a huge asshole.3 Brian Epstein would invite really rough dudes back to his house to beat the crap out of him.4 Yoko was even worse than John.5 Paul was kind of a dick, too.6 But Ringo was a nice guy.7 During early Beatle

    The opening chord of A Hard Day s Night George, on a twelve string, plays a Gsus chord From bass to treble that s G,C,F,A,C,G On a twelve string guitar, the bottom four notes get doubled at the octave, while the top two are doubled in unison Underneath, Paul plays a D And John strums a Dsus chord, ADADG, leaving out the bottom string So from bass to treble we get the following D, G, A,

    Rating for the quality of the book 4 out of 5Rating for how much I enjoyed the book 2 out of 5I realized as I was finishing this book that I wished I hadn t read it Don t get me wrong it was well written and well researched and I learned a great deal I didn t know about the Beatles And therein lies the problem.There is a whole lot I learned in this book that I wished I didn t know I mea

    A threshold book If your interest in The Beatles is only so so, you ll be bored stiff by the book and I suspect you won t make it to page one hundred The writing is only fair in style not quite historical, not quite journalistic, and not quite pure tabloid y entertainment and the substance is frankly too thin to warrant eight hundred plus pages of reading for all but the most maniacal of

    It s not a perfect book, but I think this is a decent enough Beatles biography It s certainly a long one I can t believe I just read an 800 page book It took a little under a month to read The good Spitz really captures the insanity of Beatlemania and the craziness that came with being a Beatle With all the strange goings on during the latter part of their career, it s amazing that they p

    Inconsistent, riddled with errors, inaccuracies and wrong information Lots of mistakes Such as photos from 1960 and 1961 being labeled as being at the Star Club, which didn t open until 62 States that George met Pattie Boyd on the set of Help when they actually met on the set of A Hard Day s Night Just a couple of examples Terrible book And when the list of errors was pointed out to the au

    Still finishing this up, but it s certainly the most comprehensive Beatles bio out there, and very well written and readable The best chapters are probably the school years and the Hamburg period which the author fleshes out with much detail than I ve ever encountered He also has a talent for making it feel immediate when you are reading, with great descriptive passages that give you a sen

    Well, I only read the last half, to see what jolly Bob Spitz could do with the tale of hippy woe which is the decline fall of the four jolly boys I was expecting a whole lot of fun to be had in the style of Bob s outrageous biography of the other Bob, Dylan In that one, Spitz makes up whole conversations, assumes things when he hasn t got any facts or sources, jumps into Dylan s head to riff

    I m finally done after reading this book for two full months I really wanted to give this book a five star rating, but I just couldn t There are such great moments in here, and as a music and production nerd, I was in love with how well Bob writes their recording sessions and explains the songwriting process in a reasonably accessible way Many other moments are also written so well travels an
