When lions roam the earth, jackals follow. To quote Charles Ottley Groom Napier: "Where the British lion roams, from the Hindoo Kush, to Cape Comorin, where he marches to the field with his trumpet [or 12-string Rickenbacker] roar, there the jackals, or native Allies howl." Now jackals are not bad, by any means, at least not necessarily. Some appear to be quite affable, in fact. "Nice working with you, Larry," said Paul McCartney, and this sentiment (in fact these very words) were echoed, numerous times, by John, George and Ringo. This line will probably be carved Larry Kane's tombstone. ( )

I love the Beatles and loved hearing all about them and listening to the interviews on the CD included with this book. That said, I think Larry Kane's narration was a bit stilted, as if he was writing an essay, not telling a story. Maybe it was Kane's broadcasting/journalist career showing through here, but his writing style was disappointing. Still, with a subject as interesting as the Beatles it's hard to go wrong. I really appreciated the first-hand accounts of this important event and enjoyed learning more about what John, Paul, George, and Ringo were really like. ( )

She was beautiful, her sandy blonde hair swirling in the chill summer wind, her embroidered dress draping a thin frame, her eyes welling with tears.

Haiku summary

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0762415924, Hardcover)

It was 40 years ago -- more or less -- that a 22year-old broadcast journalist from Florida was invited by manager Brian Epstein to travel with the Beatles to every stop on their first North American tours. The only American reporter in the official press party, Larry Kane obtained exclusive, revealing interviews with John, Paul, George, and Ringo. Fortunately, Kane saved his original notes and tapes, and shares them here for the first time. That material provides the basis for his intimate look back at the phenomenon of the Fab Four, and insights into the humor and personality of each group member. Ticket to Ride, illustrated with more than 30 photographs, captures a rare time in history, gracefully melding the story of the Beatles revolution with the changing tenor of the country. Hear John Lennon's early public criticism of the Vietnam War, and learn about the night the Beatles met Bob Dylan. "We had a crazy party the night we met [Dylan]," Paul recounts. I thought I got the meaning to life that night. Ticket to Ride includes a 60minute audio CD featuring rare interviews.
