The Beatles - After The Break-Up 1970-2000
by Keith Badman

From 1970 onwards the disbanded Beatles were at last free to follow their individual interests. From that point on there were four separate stories... but they were stories that would form a complex overlapping history of quarrels and reconciliations, personal projects and sporadic collaborations.

For the first time ever, a noted Beatles expert has meticulously documented the entire period of The Beatles after the break-up.
Keith Badman has produced a dazzling and astonishingly detailed day-by-day chronicle of what each of the ex-Beatles did from April 1970 onwards.

It's all here, day by day. All the ... concerts ... solo releases ... known meetings between ex-Beatles ... film, TV and radio appearances ...business deals,legal battles and personal feuds ... Beatles-related births, marriages and deaths.
Starkly punctuated by the murder of John Lennon, here is the as-it-happened story of four individuals emerging from the straitjacket of pop music's greatest ever success story. And for the first time ever their solo careers are shown to be every bit as fascinating as their legendary decade together.

With an introduction by Miles, author of The Beatles: A Diary and Many Years From Now, the authorised biography of Paul McCartney.
Fully illustrated with scores of pictures documenting John, Paul, George and Ringo... after the break-up.

The Beatles After The Break-Up 1970-2000 is the first book ever to catalogue just about everything that John, Paul, George and Ringo did after the group disbanded ... every record, every concert, every TV and radio appearance, every interview ... and much more besides. Every Beatle related event is covered, whether it be as awesome as thetragic death of John, or as predictable as the staggering prices reached in yet another auction of memorabilia.

Author Keith Badman has listed every known encounter between John, Paul, George and Ringo, for whatever reason, whenever and wherever it took place. Included are details of meetings both important and trivial, in the studio, on stage and in their lawyers' chambers. Here are extracts from key interviews which explain the ebbs and flows of the complex relationships between the four, and later three, surviving Beatles.

Here is the ongoing saga of popular music's most enduring 20th Century romance... a comprehensive history of the greatest pop group of them all.
