Renowned British music journalist and author Steve Turner surveys
the religious and spiritual influence of the Beatles, the band that
changed the history of music forever. With new interviews,
never-before-published material, and fresh insights, Turner helps
the reader understand the religious and spiritual ideas and ideals
that influenced the music and lives of the Beatles and helps us see
how the Fab Four influenced our own lives and culture. Topics
discussed include the religious upbringing of John, Paul, George,
and Ringo; the backlash in the United States after John Lennon's
"The Beatles are more popular than Jesus" comment; the dabbling in
Eastern religion; the use of drugs to attempt to enter a higher
level of consciousness; and the overall legacy that the Beatles and
their music have left. While there is no religious system that
permanently anchored the Beatles or their music, they did leave a
gospel, Turner concludes: one of love, peace, personal freedom, and
the search for transcendence.
