You Never Give Me Your Money: The Beatles After The Breakup

Not yet rated | write a review

The world stopped in 1970 when Paul McCartney announced that he was through with the Beatles. Though the Beatles'' breakup was widely viewed as a cultural tragedy, one of the most fascinating phases of their story was just beginning.

In You Never Give Me Your Money, journalist Peter Doggett tells the behind-the-scenes story of the personal rivalries and legal feuds that have dominated the Beatles'' lives since 1969. It is both a compelling human drama and an equally rich and absorbing story of the creative and financial empire the band members set up to safeguard their interests but that ultimately controlled their lives. You Never Give Me Your Money charts the Shakespearean battles between Lennon and McCartney, George Harrison''s raging inner conflict between spirituality and fame, and the struggle with alcoholism that nearly cost Richard Starkey his life. From tragedy to triumphant reconciliation, from individual chart success to bitter courtroom battles, this meticulously researched work tells the previously untold story of a group and a legacy that will never be forgotten.

Editorial Reviews

?[Doggett?s] identification of the forces that drove The Beatles apart and kept them so for the best part of 30 years is not new, but his forensic tenacity and unyielding gaze are.? (Mojo)
