They were a phenomenon together and a fascination apart. The Beatles as a group released 12 studio albums in 8 years. As solo artists, however, John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison, and Ringo Starr have released a collective 70 LPs and 900 songs since 1968.

Never before have the Fab 4 been covered like this: masterpieces and missteps, triumphs and tragedies, moments of clarity and serious lapses in judgment – they’re all here. From George Harrison’s lush Wonderwall (the shot that launched the post-Beatles era), to the Plastic Ono Band, Wings, the Traveling Wilburys, The Firemen, Ringo’s hit singles and All-Starr Bands and more. An examination of their individual musical catalogues, their film careers, and their personal lives far and away from the studio are all covered for Beatles fans to enjoy.

Longtime music journalist and former editor of Mojo magazine, Mat Snow has been writing about the Beatles for years, and he’s doing fresh interviews with friends and colleagues of the Beatles to gain insight into the solo lives of these four extraordinary men.

About the Author

London-born journalist and author Mat Snow is the award-winning former editor of the world-renowned music magazine Mojo. A Beatles nut since age four back in 1963, he has interviewed Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr as well as a galaxy of non-Beatles, including The Rolling Stones, The Who, Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, the Kinks and many more. He continues to live in London with a daughter named after a Kinks song and a dog named after Dolly Parton, another favorite interviewee.

        "This visually enticing look at the solo careers of each of the four Beatles has the feel of a lovingly crafted fan scrapbook. Festooned with a caricature of its subject on the cover, each slim volume is packed with pull-out quotes and photographs. Journalist and author Snow s (former editor, Mojomagazine) genuine enjoyment of these musicians is evident from his wordplay, callbacks to previous songs, and snappy chapter and subheading titles ( A Real Everywhere Man, Dark Hoarse ). However, he isn t blinded by his admiration, allowing himself to be critical of the artists endeavors when necessary. In general, Snow is far more enthusiastic when providing analysis of the quartet s creative output than he is when discussing details of their personal lives. Because these are concise overviews rather than in-depth examinations, fans who want more comprehensive portraits would do better to seek out biographies of the individual Beatles (Philip Norman sJohn Lennon: The Lifeis an especially strong offering).VERDICTAlthough there s no shortage of material on the Fab Four, this charming and attractive title will appeal to pop culture and music fans, particularly those looking for an introduction to John, Paul, George, and Ringo post-Beatles." - "Library Journal " "
