In the summer of 1964 the Beatles embarked on a record-breaking, pandemonium-inducing tour of America. This is the first chronicle of that tour told by someone on the inside: Ivor Davis, then a young reporter for the London Daily Express.
For 34 days, he had unrestricted access to the four boys fresh from Liverpool—from their hotel suites to the concert arenas to their private jet, fending off girls’ (and their mothers’) attempts to hook up with the band, playing all-night games of Monopoly with John Lennon, ghostwriting a newspaper column for George Harrison, being there as Bob Dylan introduced them to pot.
In The Beatles and Me On Tour, Davis recounts the rip-roaring adventures of the most legendary band at a critical moment in the history of rock ‘n’ roll.
