This book is a celebration of the impact and influence the Beatles have had on their generation and the one that followed, on both sides of the Atlantic. It contains interviews with major recording stars including the Rolling Stones, Sting, Billy Joel, Eagles, Steven Tyler, Brian Wilson, Jimmy Page, Elton John, DavidBowie and others who were witness to history. A Walk Down Abbey Road also contains interviews with the four Beatles.
What sets this book apart from all others is the wide variety of exclusive interviews. A Walk Down Abbey Road contains personal recollections and memories from major music personalities as told directly to the author. It is not designed to go head-to-head with any of the Beatles biographies or critiques, but to provide a multifaceted set of viewpoints. Over the years the author has worked with the individual members as well as Yoko Ono, Sean Lennon and Julian Lennon. His Beatles experience is firsthand.
The material is augmented with brief set ups and photos to compliment the interviews. Micky Dolenz, the drummer and lead vocalist with the rock band, The Monkees, has written the forward. Micky is currently touring with Mike Nesmith celebrating the music of The Monkees.
