Recently, I talked with Robert Rodriguez, author of a new book called “Fab Four FAQ 2.0” (Backbeat Books). This is actually a sequel of sorts. Rodriguez co-authored the first book (or “1.0” if you will) back in 2007. That book concentrated on the history of the Beatles while they were together. “2.0” picks up with the breakup of the Fab Four and the subsequent solo releases from 1970 until 1980 when John Lennon was shot.
Just about every possible angle has been covered here: from reviews of all the solo Beatles albums, to which movies they were in, who played on which LP, and even the notorious spats between them over the years.
One of the tasty elements of the book is all the memorabilia that’s pictured, most of which come from the author’s own personal collection.
The book weighs in at some 450 pages. But, if that isn’t enough to satisfy your solo Fab cravings, you can go to Rodriguez’s own website, to view unused chapters.
