A lavishly illustrated,rollicking account of the real people and events that inspired the Beatles' lyrics. Who was "just seventeen" and made Paul's heart go "boom"? Was there really an Eleanor Rigby.Where's Penny Lane? In 'A Hard Day's Write',music journalist Steve Turner shatters many well-worn myths and adds a new dimension to the Fab Four's rich legacy by investigating for the first time the ordinary people and events immortalized in the Beatles' music and now occupying a special niche in popular culture's collective imagination. Arranged chronologically by album,the book breaks new ground by exploring how private incidents influenced thr group's writing and how their music evolved.Turner reveals that 'Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds' was really a drawing by Julian Lennon of his childhood friend; 'Bungalow Bill' was an all-American tiger hunter; 'Doctor Robert' was a New York "speed doctor"; and much more.A longtime Beatles admirer,Turner tracked down and interviewed the real-life subjects of the songs,probed public records and newspaper archives,and spoke in depth to the people closest to the Beatles to unearth tales that have never before been made public. The result is a book that chronicles an untold story of the Beatles themselves. 'A Hard Day's Write' has already sold more than 140,000 copies and this edition has been fully revised to include 'Free As A Bird' and 21 other songs from 'Anthology' and 'Live At The BBC'. Illustrated with over 200 photographs,this is a visually alluring and highly entertaining journey to the land stretching just beneath your conscious mind,mapped out with strawberry fields, fool-topped hills,and long and winding roads.
