 About the Book 

Comprised of fans anecdotes, photographs, personal stories, and mementos, the contributors stories reconstruct the entire history of Beatlemania in America, dating from the earliest whispers about the group to The Beatles appearance on The Ed Sullivan Show, and from the breakup to the present day. The stories range from hilarious to compelling and poignant--one group of friends stole maid uniforms in an attempt to sneak into the Plaza Hotel during The Beatles first visit to New York, one fan camped out overnight in front of a movie theater in order to be the first to buy tickets for the premiere of A Hard Days Night, and another attended a strict Catholic school but was so devoted to the group that she declared out loud to her class that she would rather see The Beatles than the Pope. What emerges from these stories is a richly detailed and entertaining history of the profound impact that The Beatles and their music had on their fans personal lives--an effect that continues to be meaningful to this day.
