This worldwide bestseller is the biography that defined a band--and an era. As the friend and only authorized biographer of the most famous musical group in history, Davies had full access to the Beatles--including their family, friends, and colleauges--as well as their help and encouragement in writing this biography. He spent eighteen months with them when they were at the peak of their musical genius and the pinnacle of their popularity, making a mark on history and popular culture that would never fade. Davies stayed on with the Beatles through their breakup and remained friends with the individual members afterwards, enabling him to write the continuing story of their solo careers. First published in 1968, this newly revised edition has added information, including a new introduction and a newly discovered song lyric by George Harrison.
