It was 40 years ago -- more or less -- that a 22year-old broadcast journalist from Florida was invited by manager Brian Epstein to travel with the Beatles to every stop on their first North American tours. The only American reporter in the official press party, Larry Kane obtained exclusive, revealing interviews with John, Paul, George, and Ringo. Fortunately, Kane saved his original notes and tapes, and shares them here for the first time. That material provides the basis for his intimate look back at the phenomenon of the Fab Four, and insights into the humor and personality of each group member. Ticket to Ride, illustrated with more than 30 photographs, captures a rare time in history, gracefully melding the story of the Beatles revolution with the changing tenor of the country. Hear John Lennon's early public criticism of the Vietnam War, and learn about the night the Beatles met Bob Dylan. "We had a crazy party the night we met [Dylan]," Paul recounts. I thought I got the meaning to life that night. Ticket to Ride includes a 60minute audio CD featuring rare interviews.
Larry Kane is the dean of Philadelphia television news anchors,” having had a 45-year career covering domestic and world events. He previously wrote an account of his tour experiences with the Beatles in his book Ticket to Ride. Kane lives in southeastern Pennsylvania.From AudioFile:
For a 21-year-old journalist in 1964, a chance to follow the Beatles on their ground-breaking first American tour was a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. Larry Kane was that journalist, and TICKET TO RIDE is his fascinating memoir of that tour, and the subsequent one in 1965. Read with an air of bemusement that befits Kane's current reputation as Philadelphia's most well-known TV news anchor, the book, while hardly a gossip-fest, nevertheless contains many titillating behind-the-scenes anecdotes that only somebody privy to the backstage antics of the Fab Four could report. Kane tells of a much more innocent time when the whole notion of rock-star decadence was in its infancy, not to mention the commercial aspects that were coming into being, mostly due to the Beatles' innovations.
