Shout! : Revised and Updated With more than 30 percent new material, the benchmark biography of the Beatles is now the richest, most up-to-date source of information about the lives of the band members from the early days up to the death of George Harrison. Hailed as "the definitive biography" by The New York Times and "the best, most detailed, and most serious biography of the Beatles and their times" by the Chicago Sun Times, Shout! has sold nearly 125 thousand copies in its previous paperback editions. Philip Norman, who interviewed the Beatles and other principle players in their story (including Yoko Ono and George Martin) during the final traumatic weeks of their life as a band, continued to trace their paths over the next thirty years. In this revised and updated edition of his classic book, Norman reveals never-before-published information about John and Yoko's troubled marriage (including Yoko's version) and describes the reconciliatory meeting between Paul and John just before John's murder. He delves into Paul's traumatic reaction to the dissolution of the band and his estrangement from John, which affected him even as he pursued a highly successful independent career. He covers George's emergence from the shadow of Paul and John--from his involvement in the film industry to his support of charitable cause--and shines new light on Ringo, the "cement" that held the group together and the only one who managed to remain on good terms with the three other Beatles. Filled with eyewitness accounts and anecdotes, and illustrated with one hundred photographs, Shout! is an intimate biography of four extraordinary men and a stunning portrait of their times.
