Who better than Peter to tell us these stories? Who else can offer a loving, smart and funny, firsthand look at the defining cultural event of our time? He was there. With his eyes and ears open, an indelible feature of the landscape--musically, professionally, and personally. Enjoy the book. --James Taylor Peter Asher's fascinating insights, passion, charm, command of the English language, and musical expertise make his Beatles shows on SiriusXM the best. It is a pleasure to read this book and feel the same way. --Jerry Seinfeld At last, I finally understand the alphabet! I also love this book: secret Beatles knowledge from one of the closest insiders. --Steve Martin Fascinating and intriguing. I thought I knew all about the Beatles, but The Beatles from A to Zed is full of surprises. It reminded me of great tunes I had almost forgotten, and it led me to some wonderful tracks I'd never heard before. I read and listened simultaneously and had a great time. --Ken Follett I love Peter's music comments and the way he winds the stories into the songs. His voice is so authentically present that it's like having a conversation with him. I want to listen to all these songs again with this book on my lap. --Linda Ronstadt
