"We're Going to See the Beatles!" An Oral History of Beatlemania as Told by the Fans Who Were There

by Garry Berman
£10.99   paperback  Santa Monica Press (2008)

"We "We're Going to See the Beatles!" presents the story of Beatlemania in America as experienced by their most devoted fans! From the earliest whispers about the band to the Beatles appearance on the The Ed Sullivan Show, and from their subsequent tours and albums to their breakup, author Garry Berman has collected stories from the fans who witnessed the hysteria firsthand. Contributors from around the United States also share photographs and mementos to help create a richly detailed and entertaining oral history.
 
"We're Going to See the Beatles!" includes anecdotes from those who cheered the group as they arrived at Kennedy Airport in 1964, who kept vigil for them outside the Plaza Hotel, and who sat in the studio audience of The Ed Sullivan Show for the band's landmark first live TV broadcast. Other fans detail what it was like to see the Beatles in one of their rare concerts at such famous venues as Shea Stadium and Candlestick Park.
 
What emerges is a highly personal account of the Beatles and their incredible impact on music and popular culture.
