Tell me why : a Beatles commentary by Tim Riley( Book )

27 editions published between 1988 and 2002 in English and held by 1,939 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Album by album, song by song, Tell Me Why gives us a new, deeper understanding of the Beatles by focusing on what's most important: the music. This completely revised and updated edition provides a comprehensive study of the Beatles' musical legacy - from their first releases in the early sixties to the material, both written and recorded, that's been released just in the last decade. In an extensive new epilogue, Tim Riley dissects the Anthology CDs and videos, the Live at the BBC sessions, and the global smash 1, and also reflects on both Paul McCartney's biography Many Years from Now and the death of George Harrison."--Jacket
Lennon : the man, the myth, the music--the definitive life by Tim Riley( Book )

21 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in English and Dutch and held by 1,507 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The author, a music historian and journalist writes a biography that challenges many popular assumptions about Lennon's life, from his widely misunderstood 'Working Class Hero' origins to his epic romance with Yoko Ono. Also critic for NPR he takes us on the remarkable journey that brought a Liverpool art student from a disastrous childhood to the highest realms of fame. He portrays Lennon's rise from Hamburg's red light district to Britain's Royal Variety Show; from the charmed naïveté of "Love Me Do" to the soaring ambivalence of "Don't Let Me Down"; from his shotgun marriage to Cynthia Powell in 1962 to his epic media romance with Yoko Ono. This narrative draws on numerous new and exclusive interviews with Lennon's friends, enemies, confidantes, and associates. He explores Lennon in all of his contradictions: the British art student who universalized an American style, the anarchic rock 'n' roller with the moral spine, the anti-jazz snob who posed naked with his avant-garde lover, and the misogynist who became a househusband. What emerges is the enormous, seductive, and confounding personality that made Lennon a cultural touchstone.--From publisher description

Fever : how rock 'n' roll transformed gender in America by Tim Riley( Book )

8 editions published between 2004 and 2005 in English and held by 343 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In his new book, Fever: How Rock 'n' Roll Transformed Gender in America, Tim Riley argues that instead of being a negative influence, rock 'n' roll provided new role models for an entire generation of Americans - liberating men from rigid, macho straitjackets and encouraging women to express the full range of their desires." "Beginning with Elvis Presley's break from the John Wayne mold, Riley traces the development of men and women who challenged the status quo while articulating a new code of behavior. Rock's code, Riley argues, allows men to explore their feelings more openly, while freeing women to let loose their lusty and aggressive impulses."--Jacket
