Barry Miles, in Club Sandwich N°83, Autumn 1997:
The book essentially winds up when the Beatles break, in 1970, so this is not a full-length biography, it’s only about a very short period. There is a lot about Liverpool but it tends to be in the context of songs which arose from the Liverpool experience. If I had been writing a proper literary biography then I would have gone into Liverpool much more because, of course, childhood is very important in peoples’ lives. In fact, this is not really a biography at all, in the full sense of the word, because it’s about a part of someone’s life, not the whole. So I prefer to call it a portrait, or a portrait of a period.Barry Miles

"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!
This edition of the book compiles more outrageous opinions and unrehearsed interviews from the former Beatles and the people who surrounded them. Keith Badman unearths a treasury of Beatles sound bites and points-of-view, taken from the post break up years. Includes insights from Yoko Ono, Linda McCartney, Barbara Bach and many more.
