A Hard Days Write
« on: July 27, 2004, 05:10:19 AM »

Anybody have this?  What do you think of it?  I thought it was pretty good, but a little short on good stories if that makes sense.  Thoughts...

It's a very god book, well respected amongst the fandom world.  And pretty much definitive on what the song inspirations really were.

Right now I'm re-reading Tim Riley's Tell Me Why, a song by song breakdown that is far beter than Ian MacDonald's effort.

Yeah I have it too - like Mr C says, it's a great book. Some of thier songs don't really have that much of a story, but in those cases, the author gives us his interpretation of the lyrics.

There's a John Lennon book in a similar vain too.

I also have it, and I learnt a lot of thing from it. For example, I had always thought "Every little thing" was JOHN's, and I got quite surpirsed when I erad it was actually Paul's writing about Jane Asher...

I actually just bought this book and would deem it to be an excellent read. One of my new favorite Beatle books.
