Beatles Illustrated Lyrics

Beatles Illustrated Lyrics - Alan Aldridge This book is soooo 60s. Its still fun to look at. As the years go by I am less and less impressed by the Beatles after 1966 (Sgt. Peppers was sort of a "jump the shark" for me). I know they were revolutionary and trend setters and all that. There is just so much rock and roll energy in their early work that is missing from later stuff. All that said, I do like the White Album at least the parts that aren't filler, three sides worth maybe. I pretty much hated the late sixties altogether anyway. Oh, and I always liked Lennon songs way more than McCartney songs all the way up to the end in 1970. Lennon still knew what rock and roll was all about.Listening to "You're Gonna Lose That Girl."
