    When They Were Boys (The true story behind the Beatles' rise to the top)
    by Larry Kane

    This book covers the very early days of the Beatles starting in the late 50's as there just learning to play instruments,
    some of the other bands they played in, and the early members before Ringo.

    There are some good story's about the Liverpool music scene in the early 60's, and some wild tales of their first gigs in the Hamburg red light district.

    I found this book a bit tedious and repetitive. It's a non-linear time progression. Each chapter on a different band member, manager, promoter, etc. resets back to the 50's and tells how each persons life intersected with the others. Too many times the author says "but more on that later."
