About

Following the decision of Paul McCartney to sue his ex-bandmates from the Beatles, from Wikipedia:

The case opened in the Chancery Division of the High Court on 19 January 1971. McCartney’s counsel, David Hirst, told the court that the Beatles’ finances were in a “grave state” and outlined the three reasons behind McCartney’s claim for dissolution: the group had long ceased working together; in appointing Klein as the band’s exclusive business manager, the other Beatles had acted in breach of the partnership deed; and throughout the four years of its existence, McCartney had yet to receive audited accounts of the partnership.

"An updated edition of the best-seller. The story of what happened to the band members, their families and friends after the 1970 break-up is brought right up to date. A fascinating and meticulous piece of Beatles scholarship."

We owe a lot to Keith Badman for the creation of those pages, but you really have to buy this book to get all the details - a day to day chronology of what happened to the four Beatles after the break-up and how their stories intertwined together!
