"The book takes an extensive look into the history of the two powerful rock bands that changed the world and musical history in unprecedented ways. With a catchy index of quotes and lists of the bands' tours and records, McFliker succeeds in encompassing the kind of amusing and interesting facts that true fans crave... "All You Need Is Love to Dismantle an Atomic Bomb "covers the contributions these two bands have made to our world in general as well as to the world of music. The "Beatles "revolutionized music through their lyrics, performances and recording strategies. "U2 "shook everyone's ears and hearts with invigorating and painfully honest messages. .Never before has a book been able to thoroughly explore all the twists and turns of each of their journeys to make musical history, until now." -ParklanderReseña del editor:
Although there may be a general feeling that the careers of the Beatles and U2 parallel one another, especially the work and political interests of John Lennon and Bono, they have yet to be compared at length. Bono himself has said his career and role in society would not have been were it not for the Beatles. Since the 1980s, it is fair to say U2 has captured the attention of thoughtful rock fans as the Beatles did, especially from Revolver to their break-up. McFilker begins his homage to these influential bands by recounting his accidental stumbling upon Achtung Baby, MTV and U2's Zoo TV tour. To compare the two, he discusses their monumental concerts, their many tribute bands, films and documentaries and draws a direct comparison of Sgt. Pepper with Achtung Baby.
