Book Description Hal Leonard Corporation, United States, 2014. Hardback. Book Condition: New. Updated ed.. Language: English . Brand New Book.

The book s wiro-binding is designed to allow it to open flat for ease of use.The specially recorded CD has over 80 tracks that present the book s key musical exercises and examples. In 1964-1965, Larry Kane was the only American reporter, broadcast or newspaper, to travel with the Fab Four on every stop of their North American tour. In Ticket to Ride, Kane tells the story of what it was like to literally live with the four young men who would leave an indelible mark on contemporary music. Weaving in the voices of the Beatles themselves and covering the electrifying action of the road - the performances, the mischief, and all the players who cropped up along the way during those key years that catapulted the Beatles to major success - Ticket to Ride is unlike any other book on the Beatles. The story is told from the perspective of a seasoned journalist, who at the time of the tour was just coming into his own in a nation that was bracing for the Vietnam War, the civil rights movement, and a radical shift in rock-and-roll music. Twenty-one and eager to cover big news, Kane unknowingly was in the process of covering one of the biggest music events in history.Ticket to Ride is an inside account of these exciting years during the career of the band that redefined rock and roll. A must-have for Beatles fans, this paperback edition includes a foreword by the legendary Dick Clark, a CD of bonus interview material, rare photographs, and an appendix detailing tour schedules.
