Tall Tales of the Beatles

Overview

The spirit of the Beatles lives on in this satire on both the Beatles and their historians! This is a fun book for Beatles fans who are willing to laugh at the music and musicians they love. It's a humorous, irreverent romp, very tongue-in-cheek and not the least bit serious. While it poses as another stodgy analysis of all Beatles compositions, it really has more in common with the Monty Python flavored "Rutles" film. Old-time drawings make it more fun & visually stimulating. A pleasant time is guaranteed ...

    This Beatles Book Breaks NEW GROUND!!

    The spirit of the Beatles lives on in this satire on both the Beatles and their historians! This is a fun book for Beatles fans who are willing to laugh at the music and musicians they love. It's a humorous, irreverent romp, very tongue-in-cheek and not the least bit serious. While it poses as another stodgy analysis of all Beatles compositions, it really has more in common with the Monty Python flavored 'Rutles' film. Old-time drawings make it more fun & visually stimulating. To quote Mr. Kite, 'A pleasant time is guaranteed for all!' Partial Cast: Steve Allen/Julie Andrews/Chet Atkins/Lucille Ball/Orson Bean/Chuck Berry/Victor Buono/Johnny Carson/Eric Clapton/Neil Diamond/Judy Garland/The Stones/LBJ/Tim Leary/Lancelot/Laurel & Hardy/Peggy Lee/Rich Little/Maharishi/Harpo Marx/Rev Moon/Moriarty/Nixon/Elliott Ness/Peter Noone/Elvis/Billy Preston/Claude Rains/Rocky & Bullwinkle/Phyllis Schlaffley/Sinatra/Phil Spector/Tiny Tim/Alan Watts/Tarzan/Lawrence Welk. Reviewer Meredith Gentry wrote, ¿This is a GREAT book! Really creative and even mildly hilarious at times. It's a must for a true Beatles fan, or for anyone that enjoys satire. The artwork is interesting, and several times I got so caught up in the 'stories' that I had to remind myself they weren't real!! Who has the time to think this stuff up?? This is probably the most original book I've read in a long time...I look forward to a whole series of modernistic, folkloric tall-tales of other 20th century pop culture icons! Check it out!!¿
