About

From Wikipedia:

Edward Hunter Davies OBE (born 7 January 1936) is a British author, journalist and broadcaster. His books include the only authorised biography of the Beatles. […]

Writing career

After he left university, Davies worked as a journalist, and in 1965 he wrote the novel Here We Go Round the Mulberry Bush, which was made into a film of the same name in 1967. He raised the idea of a biography of the Beatles with Paul McCartney when he met him to discuss the possibility of providing the theme song for the film. McCartney liked the idea of the book because inaccurate information had been published about the group but he advised him to obtain the approval of Brian Epstein. Epstein agreed to the proposal and the resulting authorised biography, The Beatles, was published in 1968. John Lennon mentioned in his 1970 Rolling Stone interview that he considered the book “bullshit”, though Lennon at the time was vigorously debunking the Beatles’ myth and anyone who had helped to create it.

During the Beatles sessions for the Let It Be album, the Beatles recorded a song called “There You Go Eddie” about Hunter Davies that appears on bootlegs. It was not officially released. […]
