This book takes the reader through the sexual highlights (and lowlights) in the lives/careers of the Fab Four from adolescence to the present. It focuses mainly on the Quarry Men and Beatles years, but continues right through the solo era to 2013. Punctuated with illustrations featuring 'the luv bugs'. As humorous as it is salaciously informative, this account avoids opinionating and moralizing, and instead focuses on delivering the goodies ie. the juicy stuff. (Is sex a vital part of life? Was it especially so for the Beatles? Aren't you glad your parents had sex, at least once? Yeah, yeah, yeah!)
Paul McCartney Postpones Concert in Santiago, Chile; Announces Five New US Tour Dates - Tuesday, April 22, 2014
Paul McCartney just kicked off a new Latin American leg of his Out There Tour over the weekend, and the road trip already has hit a speed bump. The legendary Beatle has postponed the trek’s second show, which had been scheduled to take place at the Movistar Arena in Santiago, Chile, on Monday, April 21, because a plane carrying his equipment didn’t arrive in the city on time.
The concert now is scheduled for this Wednesday, April 23. Sir Paul also has a previously announced show at the same venue on Tuesday. “Though I’m upset that the jumbo jet carrying all my equipment for the show has gone technical and will not arrive in Santiago in time for the show…I will not cancel the concert,” said McCartney in a statement. “I would hate to disappoint our great Chilean fans so we are moving the Monday show to Wednesday this week and looking forward to having a rocking time in Santiago.” The tour kicked off Saturday at the Estadio Centenario in Montevideo, Uruguay. McCartney reportedly played a whopping 40 songs at the concert. In other news, McCartney continues to expand his U.S. summer tour itinerary, and has confirmed five new stateside shows — all in the Midwest. The latest performances will take place July 9 in Chicago; July 12 in Fargo, North Dakota; July 14 in Lincoln, Nebraska; July 16 in Kansas City, Missouri; and August 2 in Minneapolis, Minnesota.

17 Shocking Facts About The Beatles
George Harrison of The Beatles was stabbed seven times!
George Harrison was the lead guitarist of the Beetles and was one of the most famous men alive throughout part of his life. However, the Beetles fame seems to have attracted large amounts of unwanted attention. John Lennon’s death is perhaps the most famous, yet most people don’t know a similar incident happened to Harrison!
In 1999, Harrison was sleeping comfortably in his home with his wife when a man named Michael Abram broke into the house. He began loudly calling Harrison’s name until he came out of the bedroom. Harrison’s wife Olivia called the police while Harrison went to see what the commotion was from. Almost immediately Abram attacked Harrison with a knife, stabbing him seven times.
Harrison was severely wounded with a punctured lung and head injuries, and would have been killed if his wife hadn’t struck the assailant with a fire poker! After fifteen minutes Abram was arrested by the police, yet did not go to jail. Abram claimed God had told him to kill Harrison, which caused him to be labeled as insane. Harrison survived the attack and Abram was released after only 19 months of incarceration.
