Suppose, for the sake of a better story, you chose to deliberately ignore “inconvenient” facts and details that “got in the way”?

Beatles writing “by Harry Castleman and Walter J. Podrazik” has always been solidly anchored in facts. Beginning with our series of books in the mid-1970s, we’ve consistently verified accounts of the group members’ professional careers, to the best of our own U.S.-based abilities, back to the pre-Internet days. We’ve embraced the straight-laced and confirmed, rather than the fanciful.
With one exception.
We’re revealing it now because the time finally seems right.
