About the book:

Liverpool, England, October 1956. Schoolboy John Lennon and his best friend, Peter Shotton, decide to start a skiffle group as "a bit of a lark." Four years later John, now accompanied by Paul McCartney, George Harrison, Stuart Sutcliffe and Pete Best, leaves Liverpool to start a series of near legendary gigs in Hamburg, Germany. His group now performing under their newly acquired name Ė THE BEATLES.

This is the story of those four years. The story of how one of thousands of amateur schoolboy skiffle bands evolved into the beginnings of the greatest band in popular history.

Itís a story of hope, creativity and exploring musical boundaries. Itís also a story of tragedy, coincidence and at times just sheer luck.

This is a story of beginnings, the story of John, Paul, George and Ringo - Before They Were Beatles.
