5.0 out of 5 stars Who Cares if You Don't Play These Things!, 21 Feb. 2005
This review is from: "Beatles" Gear (Paperback)
For too many years, I have watched the Beatles play their beloved instruments, and always wondered what the guitars and Ringo's set of drums felt like? Were the guitars heavy? Could Ringo really "tune" up his drums? This book is magic. Even if you do not play an instrument, or never tried, this book answers all questions and has gorgeous photos of the instruments. The text is enjoyable and it made me appreciate the music even more!
There are so many books, but you must have this one!

2.0 out of 5 stars Speaking Ill and kind of the deceased., 8 Dec. 2001
I have been a Beatles fan since 1964, seen the Beatles in concert here in the US 3 times. Over the years, I've read just about every book on the Beatles, including Hunter Davies, Phillip Norman and other authors who either loved them, or had an ax to grind. Ms. Sutcliffe certainly does a great job in her book of doing such that. I became very concerned when she began to judge and
accuse people that are unable to stand for themselves. The memories of Stuart were beautiful, just adding to the information I've digested about him. She offers a strong statement that Stuart and his life were important to the "birth of the Beatles". However, she gives the impression that Stuart's contribution was dismissed. I don't agree. Stuart has always been representated through the Beatles(or publicists) as a very intelligent, talented young man who made several very positive contributions to the Beatles. I just didn't understand the purpose of the story. Most of it we've read a thousand times. In conclusion, I felt that John Lennon, Paul McCartney and George Harrison were all unfairly represented in this book. John and Stuart are not here to defend anything that was stated in the book.
