The Beatles

    Seven Great Books On The Beatles. The Beatles as Musicians: The Quarry Men through Rubber Soul - If you're really into music at a deep level like I am then you will love this book. On the other hand, if music theory scares you then you will probably find this book to be way too much for you to handle. The Beatles as Musicians: Revolver through the Anthology - These "Beatles as Musicians" books go so deep into The Beatles music that they had to break up into two volumes. This book covers the most interesting part of The Beatles career from 1966 through the end. Tell Me Why - This is an enjoyable resource that covers every song The Beatles released during the 1960s. A lot of it is just the opinions of the author, but I enjoy reading such opinions if they are well informed (and they clearly are in this case.) Plus there's a lot of real factual information included as well. The Beatles Complete Scores - The ultimate tool for any musicians who want to learn how to play The Beatles music. It's also a recommended companion piece to The Beatles as Musicians book set. It can help you to study The Beatles music along with Walter Everett. Lennon Revealed - Of the many John Lennon biographies I have read I think this one easily stands out as my favorite. It portrays Lennon as a saint but it also doesn't try tear him down like some other biographies do. I think it's a great biography because it makes me feel like I'm getting to know the real person and not the myth of that person. Here, There,Everywhere: My Life Recording The Beatles - I think this book may be, in some ways, the most revealing book about The Beatles I've read. For everything I had read about the band and their music before I read this book this year, I found out a lot more about them that I had never really known before. This book made me feel like I was there in the studio with the band, experiencing the recording of their timeless music first hand! Recording The Beatles - This massive book cost me $100 but I think it was worth the cost! The amount of detail on the gear The Beatles used to record their music (and how they used that gear) is amazing. This is a book for those really serious about music (really it's aimed at those who record music themselves.)

Pink Floyd

Pink Floyd Roger 'Syd' Barrett, Roger Waters, and David Gilmour were just three academic minded teenagers living in Cambridge when they first crossed paths. Each harbored a deep passion for questioning the world around him, and each happened to be an exceptional guitarist. In 1965, the threesome made the acquaintances of Nick Mason, an experimental percussionist, and Rick Wright, a talented keyboardist. And Pink Floyd was born. THE JOURNEY Over the course of 40 successful years, Pink Floyd achieved international acclaim for their psychadelic, progressive rock music. Their impressive discography consists of 15 studio albums, 3 live albums, 8 compilation albums, 4 box sets, 4 video albums, 1 extended play, and 27 singles- it's no wonder that in 1996, Pink Floyd was inducted into the Rock n Roll Hall of Fame. PINK WHO? People often wonder which of the musicians is 'Pink'. The answer? None of them. Pink Floyd's album 'The Wall' in fact tells the story of a rock star named Pink, and the wall he constructs in his mind. The album is said to be Rogers' musical autobiography. 'The Wall' was a smash success, selling 20 million copies, and producing the band's only number 1 single, 'Another Brick in the Wall, Part 2'. THE END It was December 23, 1987. Quarrels between Roger Waters and David Gilmore had been flaring up for years when the band came to an agreement: Waters was leaving, but Pink Floyd could continue on without him.
