A unique and vividly personal first-hand account by a Liverpool-born author who knew John, Paul, George, and Ringo as friends throughout the height of their fame As The Beatles' press officer, the author worked within the group's closest circle for six breakneck years during the Beatlemania era of the 1960s. Few were closer to The Beatles than Tony Barrow, and here, for the first time, he holds a mirror up to the Fab Four and offers his own insider's perspective on that four-way dynamic that spawned the greatest pop group the world has ever seen. From The Beatles' historic house party with Elvis Presley at his Bel Air home in the Hollywood Hills, to the very private scene of John's tearful backstage preparation for the emotional press conference following the "We're more popular then Jesus" furor, he puts the reader in the picture, offering an unvarnished take from someone who was there.
