Publisher's Summary

Ticket to Ride recounts broadcast journalist Larry Kane's travels with the Beatles during their first North American tour. The book provides an intimate look at the Fab Four and contains original interview recordings with the band conducted during the tour.


What the Critics Say

"This is the most detailed description yet of the Beatles' American tours, and one of the few books on the band written in the past decade that can be considered indispensable." (Publishers Weekly)
"There had never been a cultural phenomenon to match Beatlemania...and Kane vividly portrays its familiar trappings....More fascinating are Kane's behind-the-scenes views of 'the boys', extracted from many interviews." (Booklist)

A Ticket To Ride

This is an account of the Beatle's '64-'65 USA tour from a reporters perspective. He does a good job overall. I wish he would have given more detail of how the beatle's changed in appearance. He talks much of how they matured and came into their own in attitude and confidence and opinions, but how did their hair change, who grew facial hair, how did they dress, etc. The final hour of the book is actual tape recordings taken by the author during the 2 tours. This is the most delightful thing of the book, hearing their young voices and responses to his questions. Many simples answers, but a real bonus. I highly recommend this book to any nostalgic Beatle's fan.

Great Book

This was just an amazing book. From the stories of the road to what went on behind the scenes, the author makes you feel like you're right there on the Electra as the Beatles criss cross America in the mid sixties. Loved every minute.
