Wonderful photographs and I-was-there accounts … superb' – Sunday Times 'One of the most audacious additions to Fab Four literature' – The Herald This paperback edition marks the 50th anniversary of The Beatles' first Top 20 hit 'Love Me Do' in 1962. A magical history tour of eyewitness accounts, anecdotes and many never-before-seen photographs. Discover the truth about McCartney's Kintyre drug busts and Lennon's Highland car crash. The Fab Four: George, John, Paul and Ringo, a quartet of working-class kids whose magical songs and revolutionary influence still inspires four decades on. More has been written about The Beatles than any other rock group in history and it is difficult to imagine that there remains anything new to say, but lifelong Beatles fan Ken McNab reveals for the first time, in intimate detail, the pivotal part Scotland played in the genesis of the group and the extraordinary connections that were fostered north of the border before, during and after their meteoric rise to global fame. McNab follows The Beatles as rough and ready unknowns on their first tour of Scotland in 1960 – when they were booed off stage in Bridge of Allan – and again, in 1964, as all-conquering heroes. He also discovers that the momentous decision to break up the band was made in Scotland and provides details of the McCartneys' lives in Mull of Kintyre and Lennon's childhood holidays in Durness.
