The Beatles Off The Record is the most comprehensive oral history of The Beatles ever published - an 'as it happened' story of the greatest pop group of them all. Featuring a wealth of quotes from the Sixties by John Paul George and Ringo themselves and a host of others who were close to the group during the heady days of Beatlemania and beyond including their families fellow musicians Brian Epstein George Martin and dozens more. As Hunter Davis The Beatles official biographer states in his foreword; ...­compared with some of The Beatles' later selective and polished or faulty and fading memories this is much nearer the truth.

In his illuminating, fascinating book, Keith Badman finally uncovers the truth about the icon’s last years. It was a tough time – one in which the star’s increasingly erratic behaviour and dependence on alcohol and medication plunged her glittering movie career into drastic decline. Meticulously researched, the book reveals precisely how Monroe died at just thirty-­six years of age, and shines a light on the suspicious delays on the night of her overdose – delays that indicate a cover up. He discovers new details about her rekindled relationship with Joe DiMaggio, and the horrendous weekend she spent at Frank Sinatra’s Cal-­Nevada lodge, as well as why Fox refused to let her finish her final movie Something’s Got to Give, and her distress at being imprisoned at the Payne Witney psychiatric hospital.

Tesi 1: fu un suicidio. Tesi 2: Marilyn fu uccisa per volere dei Kennedy, a causa delle sue amicizie compromettenti e della sua inaffidabilità.

Per questo ha trascorso cinque anni a ricostruire gli ultimi giorni della diva e a vagliare centinaia di documenti, riuscendo a illuminare quelle zone d’ombra su cui fino a oggi si facevano solo ipotesi e congetture: infanzia negata, aborti, tentativi di suicidio, festini erotici, dimagrimenti improvvisi, depressione, abuso di barbiturici e alcol, frequentazioni con i boss della mafia e con i fratelli Kennedy, relazioni sentimentali e scappatelle. False voci sulla diva circolavano sicuramente anche mentre era in vita: quando una volta, nel 1962, le chiesero che cosa ne pensasse, lei si limitò a replicare: «Considerate la fonte».
Tenendo a mente queste parole e attingendo ad appunti, interviste, fotografie, ritagli di giornale, fascicoli d’archivio, ricevute, fatture e testimonianze . . .

From 1970 onwards the disbanded Beatles were at last free to follow their individual interests. From that point on there were four separate stories... but they were stories that would form a complex overlapping history of quarrels and reconciliations personal projects and sporadic collaborations. For the first time ever a noted Beatles expert has meticulously documented the entire period of The Beatles after the break-­up.
