"In A Hard Day's Write, Steve Turner shatters many myths and adds a new dimension to the Fab Four's legacy by investigating for the first time the ordinary people and events immortalized in the Beatles' music." "Arranged chronologically by album, the book explores how private incidents influenced the groups' writing and how their music evolved. Turner reveals that 'Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds' was really a drawing by Julian Lennon of his childhood friend; 'Bungalow Bill' was an all-American tiger hunter; 'Doctor Robert' was a New York "speed doctor"; and much more. The result is a book that chronicles an untold story of the Beatles themselves."--BOOK JACKET

Turner's detailed exploration of Gaye's childhood and his relationship with his family, his religious upbringing, his problematic romantic attachments, and his meteoric professional success and ultimate descent into drug abuse and financial instability offers a new look at a beloved American musician."--BOOK JACKET

"Season two ... finds the modern-day polygamist Bill Henrickson and his three wives struggling to pick up the pieces after first wife Barb's outing at the Beehive Mother of the Year Ceremony. Second wife Nicki, learning that it was her father, Roman Grant, Prophet of the Fundamentalist Juniper Creek compound, who betrayed them, battles conflicting family loyalties. And third wife Margene, newly pregnant, fights for a bigger piece of the family pie with an eye toward bringing a new wife and confidante into the fold.

The gospel according to the Beatles by Steve Turner ( Book )
4 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 509 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Renowned British music journalist and author Steve Turner surveys the religious and spiritual influence of the Beatles, the band that changed the history of music forever. With new interviews, never-before-published material, and fresh insights, Turner helps the reader understand the religious and spiritual ideas and ideals that influenced the music and lives of the Beatles and helps us see how the Fab Four influenced our own lives and culture. Topics discussed include the religious upbringing of John, Paul, George, and Ringo; the backlash in the United States after John Lennon's "The Beatles are more popular than Jesus" comment; the dabbling in Eastern religion; the use of drugs to attempt to enter a higher level of consciousness; and the overall legacy that the Beatles and their music have left. While there is no religious system that permanently anchored the Beatles or their music, they did leave a gospel, Turner concludes: one of love, peace, personal freedom, and the search for transcendence."--Publisher's website
Angelheaded hipster : a life of Jack Kerouac by Steve Turner ( Book )
12 editions published between 1996 and 1997 in English and held by 506 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In the fifties, the movies had James Dean and Brando, rock 'n' roll had Elvis, and the American novel had Jack Kerouac. Kerouac, father of the Beat Generation and creator of a "spontaneous bop prose" style, which embodied the riffing and improvisation techniques that were used by jazzmen, portrayed characters hungry for experience and eager to discover a new vision of life. He made the life of a writer sound exciting and, along with his Beat contemporaries, helped liberate poetry from the page and made the discussion of religion and spirituality hip. Here, writer Turner examines the life and work of the pivotal figure of the fifties' countercultural revolution, and explores the reasons why Kerouac's unique prose and his search for the truth continues to inspire new readers.--From publisher description
