This is the story of the
Beatles’ harrowing rise to fame, focusing on that seven-year stretch from the
time the boys met as teenagers to early 1964, to when the Fab Four made their
momentous first appearance on The Ed Sullivan Show.
From the boys’ humble beginnings in Liverpool, to the cellars of Hamburg, When They Were Boys includes stories never before
told, including the heartbreaks and the lucky breaks.
Included are an eyewitness
account of that first meeting between Lennon and McCartney, the inside story of
how Ringo replaced Pete Best, an exploration of the brilliant but troubled soul
of manager Brian Epstein, and the real scoop on their disastrous first visit to
Germany and the death of Stu Sutcliffe. With an eye for life in Liverpool
during the 50s and 60s and over sixty-five eyewitness accounts from those closest
to the Beatles, Larry Kane brings to life the evolution of the group that
changed music forever. Download and start listening now!
