Content descriptions

General Note: Includes bibliographical references (pages 497-501) and index.
Formatted Contents Note: In the beginning there was skiffle -- The Quarry Men go electric -- Five Beatles go to Hamburg -- The cavern and first recordings -- Smartening up the act -- The makings of Beatlemania -- Storming the States, and making movies -- Experimenting with new sounds -- Last live dates : the studio years begin -- Sgt Pepper time : a musical mystery tour -- Revolution : all change -- And in the end.
Summary, etc.: This ultimate guide to all the gear used by the Beatles details exactly which guitars, drums, amplifiers, and keyboards the Fab Four embraced throughout their brief but revolutionary career, from their earliest days as the Quarry Men to the dissolution of the Beatles in 1970. It provides fascinatingly fresh insights into Beatle history, exploding myths and uncovering dozens of new stories along the way. John, Paul, George, and Ringo's moves from cheap early instruments to the pick of 1960s technology are carefully and entertainingly documented in an easy-to-read narrative, fully illustrated with many previously unseen photographs, a cache of rare memorabilia, and a unique collection of specially photographed instruments used by the Beatles. As we continue to find new ways to explore their sound, from vivid remasters of their original recordings to cutting-edge video games, the Beatles remain at the forefront of popular music.
