It was just over 50 years ago that The Beatles broke up.
The Beatles are back this autumn with a new book, reworked final album, and much-anticipated documentary that sheds new light on their fraught final days.
It would be fair to say that today Let It Be symbolizes the breaking up of The Beatles.
The Beatles: Get Back trailer has arrived featuring unseen footage of John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison, and Ringo Starr, ahead of the release of Peter Jackson's new documentary miniseries in November.
Director Peter Jackson has been given unprecedented access to over 57 hours of the most intimate footage of The Beatles ever.
The filmmaker has expanded what was going to be a cinematic movie into a six-hour, three-part miniseries for Disney+ next month.
The most anticipated book in more than a decade by the legendary band, The Beatles: Get Back is the official account of the creation of their final album, Let It Be, told in The Beatles’ own words, illustrated with hundreds of previously unpublished images.
The book opens in January 1969, the beginning of The Beatles’ last year as a band. The BEATLES (The White Album) is at number one in the charts and the foursome gathers in London for a new project. Over 21 days with cameras and tape recorders documenting every day’s work and conversations, the band rehearse a huge number of songs, culminating in their final concert, which famously takes place on the rooftop of their own office building, bringing central London to a halt. The Beatles: Get Back tells the story of those sessions through transcripts of the band’s candid conversations.
The Beatles are an English Rock group from Liverpool that formed in the 1960s. Throughout their reign from the early 1960s to the mid-1970s they took over the music industry. The popularity of The Beatles grew as their music developed and became more sophisticated. The Beatles played a number of influential gigs on tour, and this is what made them so popular with the changing society of the '60s.
