There was rich praise for the original edition of "The Beatles Stories Behind The Songs Book", including Steve Matteo in "The Music Paper" describing it as, 'One of the most readable and illuminating books ever written about The Beatles', and in his autobiography, "Many Years From Now", even Paul McCartney acknowledged Steve Turner's work. Where is Penny Lane? What was the inspiration for "Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds"? Steve Turner shatters many well-worn myths and adds a new dimension to the Fab Four's rich legacy by investigating the events immortalised in The Beatles' music and now occupying a special niche in popular culture's collective imagination.
Steve Turner is the author of The Man Called Cash: The Life, Loves and Faith of an American Legend, Trouble Man: The Life and Death of Marvin Gaye, The Gospel According to the Beatles, Van Morrison: Too Late to Stop Now and Cliff Richard: Bachelor Boy. He has written for a wide range of publications, including leading US music magazine Rolling Stone and the New Musical Express in the UK.
