A lavishly illustrated, rollicking account of the real people and events that inspired the Beatles' songs, now fully updated and revised by renowned Beatles expert and music journalist Steve Turner—the definitive analysis of the music and influences of the world's most successful and popular rock-and-roll band and the only volume that contains a complete set of printed lyrics to all of the Beatles' songs. Who was "just 17" and made Paul's "heart go boom"? Was there really an Eleanor Rigby? Where's Penny Lane? What inspired "Happiness is a Warm Gun"? Why was Paul the "walrus"? What inspired the lyrics to Ringo's "Octopus's Garden"? Arranged chronologically by album, The Complete Beatles Songs examines the inspiration behind the group's writing and discusses every song created by John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison, and Ringo Starr. Steve Turner shatters well-worn myths and adds a new dimension to the Fab Four's rich legacy by investigating events immortalized in The Beatles' music, which has influenced numerous contemporary artists and continues to endure in popular culture. Fully revised and updated (originally published as A Hard Day’s Write), The Complete Beatles Songs is the only volume that contains a complete set of printed lyrics to all of the Beatles' songs, used with exclusive permission from the band's music publisher SonyATV. It also includes new information on many songs, plus brand-new stories and revelations, as well as 200 black-and-white and color photographs-many exclusive to the book. The result is a unique, authoritative, and compelling masterpiece that chronicles the untold story of the Beatles themselves, for faithful fans and new generations discovering their music for the first time.

Seit dreißig Jahren sucht Hunter Davies nach Schriftstücken von John Lennon. Von intellektuellem Geist und poetischer Begabung, war Lennon nicht nur Mitbegründer der Beatles, Komponist und Sänger, sondern auch Schriftsteller, Zeichner und Friedensaktivist, der die Träume ganzer Generationen spiegelte. Wann immer er eine Idee für einen Songtext hatte, einen Gedanken, einen Wunsch: Füller, Tinte und Papier dienten ihm, sich mitzuteilen. Die »John Lennon Letters« waren auf der ganzen Welt verstreut, Davies spürte sie auf in Auktionshäusern, Zeitungsredaktionen, Museen, bei Privatpersonen. Jetzt erscheinen sie erstmals als Buch. Weise, verrückt, lustig oder herzzerreißend: Die Briefe erlauben einen unverstellten und sehr intimen Blick auf John Lennon, einen der größten Künstler des 20. Jahrhunderts.
