5つ星のうち 5.0 Completely True Front to back! 2006/4/26
投稿者 DG - (Amazon.com)
I live in Benton, I know everyone that was in the Four Vests and talk with them often. This is a great peice of history about a young Englishman that visited a small town not unlike Mayberry on Andy Griffeth. No one at the time, Harrison was in Benton, knew anything about him except that he was a musician and was from England. Everyone said he was really a nice guy, very polite, and quiet. This book is an attempt to capture some of the history of the visit. It is an interesting read and completely true. I have lived in Benton my entire life and would like to state for the record that the events described in this book took place and it is NOT an attempt to separate Beatle fans from their money as one of the previous reviews described. We in Benton take offence to that.

I was fortunate enough to purchase a copy of this book from George Harrison's sister Louise Harrison, at Liverpool Days in Pasadena this year. I must tell you that she fully endorsed the book as being true by offering it up for sale. I had a chance to talk with her at length and louise is a forthright, humorous woman. After reading the book (being a 53 year old woman who is a die-hard Beatles fan) I felt I had a little more understanding of the times and of George's vast curiousity of the US. Ultimately I became a huge admirer of George's for his belief of a higher power and his quest to know more. I would highly recommend this book for a little peek into this most private man's early life. The goodness and kindness of this man should never be forgotten. I think he was always FAB, he just didn't know it at an early age.

5つ星のうち 5.0 A Unique Beatle Book 2000/10/1

Mr. Kirkpatrick does a fine job of describing George Harrison's first U.S. visit. Hearing about Harrison's first impressions of American culture and people is interesting. That the author was able to locate and interview so many people from 1963 is impressive. The pictures and illustrations in this book are also helpful. That "the polite young Englishman with long hair and sandals" got along so well with the people of southern Illinois is nice to hear.

5つ星のうち 5.0 Simply...Fab! 2002/4/24
投稿者 Kevin D. McKee - (Amazon.com)
As the writer for the film adaptation of Jim Kirkpatrick's BEFORE HE WAS FAB, I have found the work to be an invaluable resource. The book is well researched and written with a fresh, direct perspective that chronicles the first U.S. visit by a Beatle before America even heard of The Beatles. It's charm rests on the fact that it is a true story!
BEFORE HE WAS FAB does an admirable job of reporting facts, eliminating fantasy and capturing a special moment in American heartland history. Tucked within the pages, you'll meet some colorful characters who befriend this mop-haired lad who just happens to play guitar for a pretty good British rock `n roll band. The book is a solid bet for the Beatle aficionado. Don't pass it up!

5つ星のうち 5.0 Good 2001/1/31

This is an amazingly interesting book for covering two weeks in the life of George Harrison (although, actually, a lot of the book deals with follow-up events). I was impressed to find I'd been in some of the towns George visited in Illinois. His sister Louise really helps the author a lot, so it's "from the horse's mouth". It is also quite well written. The fascinating thing about the book is it's George in the USA only 5 months before the Beatles were to explode in the USA. He even does some minor publicity for the group, and, believe it or not, Ringo was going to come with George until he learned Louise was preparing some publicity things for George. And Ringo just wanted a straight vacation. So George's brother Peter came to the USA instead of Ringo. A really fun book to read.
