The other day, I dropped $3 on a Kindle Single, The Story of the Beatles’ Last Song, billed as the tale of I Want You (She’s So Heavy), track six on Abbey Road.
Apparently, that’s the last song the Beatles – all four of them – recorded together.
The book – which seems oddly long for a Kindle Single – seems to be more a narrative of how & why the Beatles broke up, than of a particularl song.
That makes it something of a disappointment, since Why The Beatles Broke Up is one of those questions – like Who Shot JFK – so thoroughly investigated & argued, by so many people over so many decades, that nobody has anything new to say about it.
And, really, anyone still holding a grudge against Yoko Ono forty-five years later needs to let it go.
