Love Me Do tells the story of the Beatles by highlighting and then examining in detail fifty significant events in their amazing career. Using huge amounts of research and personal insight, respected music journalist and author Paolo Hewitt will take the reader on a roller coaster ride, from the band’s early days in Liverpool, their raucous behavior in Hamburg, their famous stint at The Cavern, onto the birth of Beatlemania and the incredible worldwide phenomenon that The Beatles became. The effect of worldwide fame on the band was highly significant. It forced them into the studio where they recorded classic albums such as Sgt Pepper and The Beatles.

This book will look at their incredible music and their activities outside of that music. We will meet the Maharishi and go shopping with the band on the Kings Road. As the story unfolds we will witness how their ideals and their interests all served to influence their generation and many others. We will also take in the band’s reformation in 1996 when Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Ringo Starr recorded and released two of John Lennon’s songs. Here, then, are the 50 Great Beatles Moments.
