If you’re near the Sunset Strip on Tuesday, December 4 at 7PM, please drop by my reading at Book Soup and bring your own favorite solo Beatles songs to discuss!
What do you do when you need to hear new Beatle songs but you’ve just replayed all their CDs? Mix the best of their solo stuff into new Beatle albums! But with over 900 tracks over the last 40 years, where to start?
STILL THE GREATEST rounds up the crème de la creme, sharing the fascinating stories behind the songs and compiling them into The 12 Beatles Albums That Should Have Been (1970-2011). Rolling Stone.com ran excerpts from the book and USA Today recommended it.
Bring along your own suggestions for the best solo tracks (or guilty pleasures), and hear about the Post Fabs’ most pivotal moments, feuds, affairs, reunions, and comebacks.
Who was the house band of John, George, and Ringo? Was Jeff Lynne the 5th Solo Beatle? How did the Post-Fab Four fare against arch-rivals Dylan and the Stones in the 70s? What new genres did they tackle on their own? And what are the deep cut classics due for reappraisal? Meet other local Beatles maniacs and get a whole new perspective on the underrated Second Act of John, Paul, George and Ringo!
