The Beatles Through The Years has been one of the leading internet entertainment sites related to the Beatles since its incarnation in 2011, for one simple reason: we focus on the fans. While we do provide the history of The Band, talk about the latest Beatles-related news in our blogs and on the Tea and a Butty Podcast, discuss their albums and movies, and swoon over pictures of the lads, we also highlight the individuals that make up this particular fandom, because Beatles fans are what keeps the legend of the Beatles alive.

Beatle Books In Review: I, Me, Mine by George Harrison




This book is the closest George ever got to an autobiography. The first part is filled with his recollections of his childhood and being a Beatle, as well as his thoughts on life, religion, gardening and even motor racing, as told to Derek Taylor. The next section of the book contains photographs. My personal favourite is the section featuring the original handwritten lyrics to many of George's songs, accompanied by explanations from the man himself. It's great to see where he got his inspiration from, and nothing offers a better glimpse into the mind of a great songwriter. Olivia Harrison's foreword is very moving.
