If Paul McCartney hits the headlines it's probably in connection with his charity work. George Harrison lived a quiet life and Ringo Starr keeps a very low profile indeed. Even Lennon, the rebellious one, had become a house-husband before his murder. Faced with this respectable picture, it's easy to forget just how extraordinary the Beatles' lives have been. Theirs is the ultimate celebrity story - too much success too young, too much money, and too many temptations. Chock full of revelations, "Carry that Weight" restores the Beatles to their place in the hell-raising rock canon. Geoffrey Guiliano has drawn on his archive of unpublished Beatles material to write an in-depth biography. The basic facts may be legendary: four lads from Liverpool are spotted at the Cavern by Brian Epstein, rocket to worldwide fame, release some of the most influential albums of all time, and split. But behind the legend he reveals the hidden story of four troubled young men, of the relationships they forged and wifully broke, of the huge price they paid for their wealth and fame. From childhood to the present day, this book reveals the human reality behind the Beatles myth.
