The Authorised Biography
« on: April 26, 2004, 12:35:34 PM »

I bought a completely updated copy of Hunter Davis' Beatles biography yesterday - it is SO much better now! The book is a much larger format and has been completely over-hauled! The reproduction documents and photos are excellent quality at last and are printed on high quality paper.

This is the third edition I've ever bought, but is BY FAR the best!
GEMM is your best source for impossible-to-find !

Absolutely.  The updated preface itself is worth the price.  While the body is still somewhat dated, it is the only authorized bio ever and worth a look.

A strange question.... is Hunter Davies still alive? I kinda remember someone telling me that he died last year.... I hope I'm wrong.
