In 1964, the beatles invaded america. Thirty-two shows in 25 cities in 31 days. Record-smashing attendance. Unimaginable fan reactions. It was the first major rock-and-roll concert tour ever. It was the beginning of a revolution. Ticket to ride tells this story like it's never been told before. It is the story of an extraordinary journey of four young men from uncertainty to timeless legacy. It is also a story about the generation that grew along with them, from the innocence of the early sixties to the turbulent years later, when issues of race and war shattered the nation. Larry kane, the only american journalist to travel to every stop of the 1964 and 1965 beatles' north american tours in the official press party, brings the events of these historic dates to life, offering an original inside account in words, pictures, and voice. Kane saw it all --^ on the beatles' airplane, in their hotel suites and limousines, backstage, and everywhere. He developed a unique rapport with john, paul, george, and ringo that thousands of other journalists at the time could only dream of. Granted exclusive interviews with the boys on a daily basis, kane was able to draw out some of the beatles' most poignant thoughts about the tour, about their music, about their personal joys and pains, and even about the political scene in america and around the world. Come along as the beatles traverse the united states and canada, followed closely by an insatiable media and frenzied fan base whose creative attempts to get close range from hilarious to terrifying. Climb aboard the american flyers' electra and watch as the boys and their entourage enjoy pillow fights and jam sessions (including the impromptu creation of the song, eight days a week). ^ experience the wild, wailing crowds at the beatles' phenomenal concert events from every imaginable point of view. Become a fly on the wall as the beatles meet their idol, elvis presley, and their influential american friend, bob dylan. Meet the beatles in their most private moments, and learn what they did when the rest of the world was safely at bay. Yes, there is sex, drugs, and lots of rock-and-roll in this story. But mostly, it is the story of the world's greatest rock band in their finest moment. In ticket to ride, history and legend merge into one. Larry kane had a ticket to ride, and now, so do you.
