Book Review – The Beatles Anthology

The Beatles have and still are mesmerizing the world with their bewitchery rock music. There have been numerous books written over the band. But one book that has actually mesmerized me is The Beatles Anthology [view it at amazon]. Here is a short review of the book for our rock fans.

The Beatles Anthology Book

The Beatles Anthology has been so far the best one of the best book in its genre. Actually the reason could be that it is for the first time ever that someone has tried to let the band itself tell its own success story without any outer alteration or narration. This is the strongest positive aspect of the book.

The Beatles Anthology portrays profoundly comprehensive interviews with the stars themselves – Paul, Ringo, John and George. Moreover, the book also provides incredible mixes from George Martin (producer), Neil Aspinall (manager) along with Derek Taylor (publicist/ friend and Apple guy for band).

The book starts with separate four biographies of our Heroes, told by them which is the prime asset. It proceeds ahead into detailed descriptions concerning all of their lives being together year by year. The flow of the book is amazingly interesting and holds you by its each word. To me it appears more of as a conversation instead of a mere story, which again is a big positive. This attribute of the book makes you feel their personalities strongly & clearly along with their passion and love for their band and each other.

On a finishing note, the book is equipped with several plus factors. It should not only be read by Beatles fans only but others who are looking for a close insight with true success.

The Catholic League Attacked David Bowie’s clip “The Next Day”

David Bowie’s latest video “The Next Day” has certainly drawn much popularity from catholic league. Bowie was called “switch-hitting, bisexual, senior citizen from London” who is “nothing if not confused about religion” by the catholic league in a statement issued just after an hour of the video upload. “The Next Day” which is directed by Floria Sigusmundi and penned by Bowie, is the title track from his 24th studio effort.

The Next Day video shows that the homeless were punched by a priest (played by Gary Oldman). Bowie is singing from stage and is wearing clothes as Jesus along with a misty nightclub of priests and poorly dressed women with the female lead played by Marion Cotillard.

Catholic League president Bill Donohue criticized this effort of Bowie greatly and publicly told that he believes Bowie is confused about the religion. According to Billboard, YouTube had also removed this clip for allegedly violating terms of service but then had to return quickly after the site determined it had made an error.

This is not the first time that Bowie and catholic league have come face to face. In 1997 when Bowie depicted himself as Jesus for a promotional Ad in Pulse Magazine, he was called out by the League. Thus the encounter on Bowie by the league has a history as well.

Catholic league has attacked many other artists as well like Lady Gaga recently for using words which didn’t suit the Catholic League like “Judas”.
