Look at Paul! Always ready to take orders!
Don’t you mean Paul always ready to GIVE orders?
Paul always knew what he had to do…………………
By the way, what do you guys think of that Bob Spitz book that came out on the Beatles about 5-6 yrs ago ?
Well, I found several mistakes in it within a few minutes of just reading the photo captions so that was an immediate turn off. Nearly every new book that I see on The Beatles I find mistakes in. Kind of sad. Only Mark Lewisohn’s books seem to be free of errors.(I’m not him).
Absolutely the pix captions were horrible, they they didn’t even identify a very young Julian in Johns arms in Central Park in 1964. I was talking about the text itself though. There were a few things that were omitted altogether it seems but to me John does not come off as a good person at all someone you would love to kick his ass for his cruelty which probably has some truth to it. George comes off as not altogether likeable but has some good points and a bit cooler then I gave him credit for. Paul and Ringo come across as regular guys. Yoko totally unlikable but none the less fills a void in John’s life but manipulative.
Most books out there about the Beatles, I don’t read. The books I have read were a real turn off, because like you said, were not accurate and have a lot of errors. The books seem to be overly embellished. A lot of the authors, who write the books, have never met the Beatles and that is a real turn off. They write books based on what other people have said about them. I try to read books that are by people who were close to them. For even the people who are/were close, everything that is written may not be all true.
I like reading books, so if anyone can recommend a good book about the Beatles, please let me know.
Philip Normans SHOUT I thought was very good and Hunter Davis bio from wayback was good with some first hand accounts by the Fabs but some stuff was probably watered down. Pete Shottons book on John was pretty good with some funny stories.
