I met Ivor Davis for the first time at the Chicago Fest for Beatles Fans in August. The word most commonly used to describe Ivor was ‘charming’. And that he was! He won everyone over who had the privilege to meet him and take home a copy of his book. I’ve finally gotten around to reading this book and here’s my honest review.
What an absolute delight this books is! Refreshing and so well written, anyone can just breeze through it’s pages. The only downside…it ends. Ivor has spent his life as a reporter and it shows in his writing style…very easy and smooth, it’s an absolute joy to follow him along on his journey with the Beatles during their 1964 tour of America. Ivor doesn’t bore you with HIS story…he tells the story of what was going on behind the scenes. Readers get the inside story of the Beatles backstage, in the air, holed up in their hotel rooms like caged animals and the secret meetings and parties that went on with other stars of the time.
Without a doubt, this book is a must read and must have for any true Beatles fan. And if you’d like to know more about Ivor and his book, you can go to his website at: www.IvorDavisBeatles.com. There are also links to let you know where you can purchase your own copy.
And if you’re in the L.A. area, don’t miss the opportunity to meet Ivor Davis at the Fest for Beatles Fans in L.A. on October 10-12, 2014.
I rate this book: 4 out of 4 Beetles!
