about

Chronicling the story of the Beatles in their native city of Liverpool, this rock biography combines authoritative text with the most striking images from their time in the city. Documenting the seminal events of this English quartet—from the Beatles’ childhood, the influence of Liverpudlian humor on their lyrics, and whether John was really a “working class hero,” to the other acts that the Beatles played for, the influence of visiting American rock and rollers, and Brian Epstein’s pre-Beatles troubles—this recollection reveals the Fab Four’s evolution from the Quarrymen (an early version of the Beatles) to international musical icons.

Editorial Reviews

“Just when it looks like there’s really, truly, absolutely nothing new to say about The Beatles, along comes The Beatles in Liverpool, a slender but meaty volume packed with photos, anecdotes, biography and gossip that documents the Fab Four’s formative years.”  —PopMatters.com
