Description by OLDIES.com:
The world's most famous band existed officially for just ten years. Its extraordinary story has been the subject of countless books, films and articles. Now here at last is the definitive Beatles chronicle. The Beatles: A Diary
stands apart from all other Beatle books.
This is nothing less than a 30-year diary of The Beatles, beginning in wartime Liverpool and ending in the dying days of the swinging Sixties. Few insiders know The Beatles' story like author Barry Miles. And no one has had access to anything like so much intimate detail. Far more than a simple chronology, The Beatles: A Diary is pop music's greatest success story told just as it happened - with new insights and new authenticity.
Fully illustrated with hundreds of color and B&W pictures.
This is nothing less than a 30 year diary of The Beatles beginning in wartime Liverpool and ending in the dying days of the swinging sixties. It contains an astonishingly detailed chronology of gigs, venues, quotes and memorable dates. It exposes the unvarnished stories of the four band members, uncovering the quarrels, sex and the drugs as well as the personal triumphs.
