‘The Biggest Hit’: Why ‘The Beatles’ are the biggest hit of all time
Posted On August 4, 2021
In the Beatles’ world, they were never just another pop group; they were one of the biggest bands of all-time.
They were a band that everyone knew, even if they didn’t know the name or the name alone.
And now that they’ve gone, there’s no doubt that they will be remembered as one of rock’s greatest bands of its age.
That was the premise behind the book ‘The Greatest Hits’ by Walter Williams and Peter Jackson, which chronicles the making of the band’s greatest hits.
Williams, a Grammy-winning musician, author and former Beatles manager, has been working on the book since 2002 and it is expected to be completed in about a year.
Williams is a big fan of the Beatles and has been a lifelong Beatles fan.
“It’s a great story, but also a bit of a little joke, a bit like a sitcom,” Williams said.
“I guess you could say that I was kind of a Beatles fanboy until I became an accountant and all of a sudden I became a Beatles follower.”
This is the way that I saw the Beatles, and the way I liked the Beatles.
“Williams said the book would be a great way to give a broader perspective on the band and its fans.”
You don’t really know what it’s like to be a Beatles fanatic until you have a couple of books on the Beatles,” he said.
But while some fans have been clamoring for a sequel, Williams said he was hesitant.”
They were just a great band, and I think that people just love them,” Williams explained.”
But they were a bit much for a number of reasons.
One of them was that they were not very big.
You’re not going to see them play as many shows as they did in the 70s, and that meant they weren’t as popular.
“But the book does provide an insight into the band during its heyday, Williams says.”
We really got to know the Beatles pretty well, and they were pretty big people.
“There’s lots of songs about them that you can get into,” Williams added.
“One of the things I like is the stuff that I think is a little bit over the top, but you’ll get some pretty good stuff.”
And they were just really popular, and were just super funny.
“Some of the stuff is funny because you don’t know how they feel at the time, or you don.
But it’s a good story to tell.”
Williams says his book also gives a bit more insight into how the band came to be.
“The Beatles had a reputation as a really small band,” Williams noted.
“Even before they got the chance to make the record, they had been doing that for about six months.”
So they were very, very popular, very good at what they were doing, and it was only going to be the two of them that could make it.
“Then there was an album that came out in the summer of 1968, called ‘The Magical Mystery Tour’ — and I always liked the title, because the idea of the tour was to bring the Beatles to the United States.”
Williams also said that the album’s title came from the fact that the band was playing at an outdoor amphitheatre, which was located near the band headquarters.
“What was the point of going to an outdoor venue and playing on stage, if you were not going out to play with your friends?,” he asked.
“That’s just a joke now.
But the idea was to go to an amphitheater, and put the whole band on stage.”
Williams’ book is based on his extensive research into the album and the band, but he says he is also exploring other aspects of the group’s career.
“When I was doing the book, I was also looking into the Beatles history and the Beatles music, and looking at the stories about them, but there were a few things that I didn’t look at,” Williams told The Independent.
“For example, they really had no idea how popular they were until they were in their 30s.
So, I think the book is really going to help to show the history of the music and the story of the two guys who really made it happen.”
Williams, who is now the author of the book The Beatles: A History, said the band has had a great impact on people’s lives, but it’s not all positive.
“A lot of people have really loved the band,” he added.
“But it was really the music, the music they were making that really influenced the world, and people really didn’t appreciate the impact that the music had.”
Williams hopes that his book will bring awareness to the music industry.
“People have forgotten about the Beatles because they’re not really well known,” Williams continued.
“Now people are going to know that the Beatles were huge.
