I’m a fan too and consider myself a self-styled Beatles expert, having read many of the books written about my favorite group. I can’t say I have the encyclopedic knowledge of someone like Mark Lewisohn for instance, but I know a fair enough and, since there are no other Beatles blogs out there (!!??), I figured I’d start my own. I know you’ll all let me know when I make a mistake. But I hope not to…
Since you’re reading this, you must be a fan and, since that’s true, I hope you’ll take a look at my new young adult book about The Beatles. It’s called “Get Back…” and it’s about a 17-year-old guitar player named Lenny and his girlfriend Yoko (!) who manage to time travel with the help of a magic iPod and Lenny’s unique brain. Of course, they visit their favorite group — the Beatles — and it’s all fun and games until John Lennon spots Lenny’s smartphone and discovers he’s from the future.
That’s when the questions and Lenny can handle it until John asks the one question Lenny does NOT want to answer. “What becomes of me?” John asks. Lenny has no answer but the thought that he might be able to save John sets him off on the adventure of a lifetime.
