1 Review
The world's most famous band existed officially for just ten years. Its extraordinary story has been the subject of countless books, films and articles. Now here at last is the definitive Beatles chronicle.
Written by Miles, an intimate member of the Beatles Sixties circle, containing an astonishingly detailed chronology of gigs, venues, quotes and memorable dates, exposing the unvarnished stories of four band members, uncovering the quarrels, the sex and drugs as well as the personal triumphs, this is nothing less than a 30-year diary of The Beatles, beginning in wartime Liverpool and ending in the dying days of the swinging Sixties.
Here, the high points and the daily routine of fame are presented just as life presented them to The Beatles - day by day.

Review: The Beatles: A Diary

User Review  - Stone - Goodreads

Using Lewisohn's Complete Chronicles almost verbatim and adding a few bits of interviews here and there, it makes probably a less academic than the former and thus a lighter read for a more casual Beatles fan. Still good, though. Read full review
