Revised and updated for the 50th anniversary of The Beatles.
Who was “just seventeen” and made Paul’s heart go “boom”? Who was “Lady Madonna”? Was there really an Eleanor Rigby? What inspired “Happiness is a Warm Gun”?
In A Hard Day’s Write, Steve Turner shatters many well-worn myths and adds a new dimension to the Fab Four’s rich legacy by investigating the events immortalised in The Beatles’ music and now occupying a special niche in popular culture’s collective imagination. This edition has been fully revised and updated for 2012’s 50th anniversary of the Beatles and includes new information on many songs, plus brand new stories and photographs.
