50 years later, the things The Beatles still say to us today: John L. Micek | PennLive.com

Fifty years after they stopped touring, and four decades after they ceased to exist as a recording entity, is there really anything new to say about The Beatles?It’s pretty safe to conclude that no modern rock group’s personal, professional and musical history has been as thoroughly combed through as that of Messrs McCartney, Lennon, Starr and Harrison.You could stock a decent-sized library and then wallpaper it with all the books and articles that have been written about the band over the years.From authorized biographies and purported tell-alls to socio-cultural ruminations and forensic examinations of their recording techniques, so much water has flowed over their history that the band’s collective edges have been sanded down to almost nothingMy own bookcase counts at least three such volumes, including one that improbably roots through the dream symbolism of the Liverpudlian band and its music. The most well-thumbed book, by far though, is “Lennon, the Definitive Biography,” by Ray Coleman.
