It's hard to imagine at any point the greatest rock band in the world was spiraling downward - with Paul's grievances with John, John's drug use, George and Ringo cast aside and with Apple Records in dire financial straits. In what would be their last year, the "Fab Four" recorded Abbey Road and the rest is history.
McNab reconstructs for the first time the seismic events of 1969, when The Beatles reached new highs of creativity and new lows of the internal strife that would destroy them. Between the pressure of being filmed during rehearsals and writing sessions for the documentary Get Back, their company Apple Corps facing bankruptcy, Lennon's heroin use, and musical disagreements, the group was arguing more than ever before and their formerly close friendship began to disintegrate.
In the midst of this rancour, however, emerged the disharmony of Let It Be and the ragged genius of Abbey Road, their incredible farewell love letter to the world.
