Product Description

About the Author

Award winning writer and poet, David Stuart Ryan, takes you into the amazing world of the Beatles at the height of their fame as he reveals the many previously hidden sides of John Lennon. He has interviewed many of the people who helped to make the Beatles into their worldwide phenomenon they became. You will learn just how influential their first manager, Allen Williams, was in creating a band that became a world beater. During a memorable lunch time session that stretches all through the afternoon the manager reveals the secrets of just how he set the band on their way in Hamburg through his London contacts. The tangled story of John Lennon's relationship with his father is now told and helps to explain many of the demons that drove him, and of his eventual quieting of these demons right at the end of his father's life as the author explores the manuscript that his father left behind with his young bride. Even if you thought you knew the story of the Beatles you will find many hidden nuggets that David Stuart Ryan has dug out from the files of Time Inc where he worked.

I enjoyed reading this as it was from my 'era'. However it did seem a little too long for comfort. Although I do not know the sources for the information it does seem to be fairly objective and credible particularly in terms of Lennon's relationships with Yoko Ono, Paul Mc Cartney and Brian Epstein. I found the consistent mis-spelling of Allen (Alien) Klein quite annoying!

Although this book is primarily about John Lennon it also reflects on his relationship with the other Beatles, Yoko Ono and those on the bandwagon.It is also a study into the social history of Liverpool,London and Hamburg during those early years and the New York art scene in the 70s. Even though I grew up on Merseyside during the Merseybeat era this book contained many things I hadn't known about those times.

I was disappointed with this. I always loved the Beatles as this was my era. It destroyed lots of my fond memories of them. I prefer to leave the negative in the past and celebrate the positives that he gave.

The story was very much what I expected. Poor John had a very mixed up young life. He however showed the world that he was a musical genius. Thank you for the memories.
