A legendary record producer and performer takes readers on an alphabetical journey of insights into the music of the Beatles and individual reminiscences of John, Paul, George, and Ringo. Peter Asher met the Beatles in the spring of 1963, the start of a lifelong association with the band and its members. He had a front-row seat as they elevated pop music into an art form, and he was present at the creation of some of the most iconic music of our times. Asher is also a talented musician in his own right, with a great ear for what was new and fresh. Once, when Paul McCartney wrote a song that John Lennon didn’t think was right for the Beatles, Asher asked if he could record it. “A World Without Love” became a global No. 1 hit for his duo, Peter & Gordon. A few years later Asher was asked by Paul McCartney to help start Apple Records; the first artist Asher discovered and signed up was a young American singer-songwriter named James Taylor. Before long he would be not only managing and producing Taylor but also (having left Apple and moved to Los Angeles) working with Linda Ronstadt, Neil Diamond, Robin Williams, Joni Mitchell, and Cher, among others. The Beatles from A to Zed grows out of his popular radio program “From Me to You” on SiriusXM's The Beatles Channel, where he shares memories and insights about the Fab Four and their music. Here he weaves his reflections into a whimsical alphabetical journey that focuses not only on songs whose titles start with each letter, but also on recurrent themes in the Beatles’ music, the instruments they played, the innovations they pioneered, the artists who influenced them, the key people in their lives, and the cultural events of the time. Few can match Peter Asher for his fresh and personal perspective on the Beatles. And no one is a more congenial and entertaining guide to their music.

This in-depth, research-based book profiles the band that shaped a generation and changed the face of music forever. What makes a legend? The Beatles: A Musical Biography attempts to answer that question by taking an in-depth look at the band that changed pop music. Examining the events and ideas that influenced each album and many songs, the book seeks to explain what drove the Beatles to make music, as well as what drove the music itself. While the biography covers the musical history and achievements of the band, it also looks at what was happening in the lives of John, Paul, George, and Ringo during the Beatle years, exploring their personal drives and aspirations and their relationships with each other. Readers will come away from this book with a far better appreciation of the Lads from Liverpool—and of what was really going on underneath those oh-so-controversial haircuts.
