Overview

To rattle off the hits of Neil and Tim Finn reads like a checklist of recent pop history. And to think it all began in sleepy rural Te Awamutu—a town whose name had a "truly sacred ring," as Neil would famously recount—where Brian Timothy Finn fell in love with the Beatles, an obsession that would also work its way straight into his younger brother Neil's DNA. Based on interviews, critical analysis, extensive research, and more than 30 years of watching Finns and listening, Together Alone is the first biography written about the Finn brothers. This is a story of breakthroughs, breakdowns, sibling rivalry, and respect—and some of the best pop songs this side of Lennon and McCartney.
