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: Can't Buy Me Love: The Beatles, Britain, and America by Jonathan Gould
I first read this book when I received it as a Christmas present a few years ago. I was curious as to how it would be different to the other Beatle books I had read, but by the end it had become one of my favourites. Even if you think you know the story already, there is still something about this book that keeps the reader gripped. One of the things I liked most about it was how much detail it went into regarding the songs themselves. Gould also does a wonderful job at setting the scene - by this I mean telling the band's story in a wider social context.
