Tony Bramwell's remarkable life with The Beatles began in a post-war Liverpool suburb, when he became childhood friends with John, Paul and George. By the time he unexpectedly ran into George Harrison on top of a bus, Tony was well into a life story absolutely unlike any other. At Apple Record's insistence, Tony stayed with The Beatles for every step of their meteoric rise. His story has been sought for over thirty years, and here it is, detailing with an insider's shrewd eye the incomparable success and inevitable failure of the Apple empire; Brian Epstein's frolics; Ken Kesey's Merry Pranksters; Phil Spector's eccentric behaviour; as well as never-heard-before stories about Yoko Ono. It also includes details of the early songwriting & recordings and Yoko's pursuit of John and her growing influence over The Beatles' lives. From the first number one to the last, this is a comprehensive and insightful account of the swinging sixties and the four lads who shook the world.--This text refers to the Paperback edition.
