Better Than the Beatles free pdf Have you ever wondered why girls (and guys too for that matter) screamed their heads off and cried real tears when they saw The Beatles back in the 60's? There's never been a decent explanation as to why. Cleve Brock attempts to tell you why, in his deeply personal memoir of growing up in the 60's in a small town in Oregon. This book is not about The Beatles. It's about the 73 Million people who watched The Beatles on the Ed Sullivan Show on black and white TV sets on that Friday night in February of 1964. It's a hilarious true account of what it was like growing up in the 60's, that Baby Boomers will understand and everyone else wants to understand. Brock is a master storyteller who depicts true accounts such as being forced to square dance in P.E., and playing spin the bottle on school picnics. The book might be compared to "The Wonder Years," a successful television series that aired on ABC from 1988 through 1993. But this book carries a constant theme of rock n roll and is a heck of a lot funnier. Yes, the book is a memoir, but it is also much more than that. Interwoven throughout the book, is a discography of rock n roll music of the 60's, documented with 20,000 words of endnotes. It reads as a narrative through strings of stories describing Brock and his friend's quest to become like The Beatles, only to find through adventures with siblings, schoolteachers, coaches, girlfriends, and parents-that they become Better Than The Beatles.

About Cleve Brock

Cleve Brock was born in Lakeview, Oregon in 1953 at Lake County Hospital when it was a little rock building across from the Catholic Church. He grew up and received his public schooling in the Lake County School District achieving a G.P.A. of somewhere around 2.0. In spite of being advised by his High School Counselor to attend a trade school, the author told the counselor to shove it, and attended Southern Oregon College (not University) as a music major. Here, the author excelled and fit right in with all the freaks in Ashland, Oregon, receiving honors (from his mom) for eventually graduating with a Bachelor's degree in eight short years. During his college days he played rock n roll music every Friday and Saturday night while traveling on the road with his rock band. The author later spent two years in Houston, Texas and learned to speak the Southern language. After mastering "Southern," he attended college again and got a haircut similar to Ron Howard (Opey) on the Andy Griffith Show. After college he traveled to the San Francisco Bay Area where he grew his hair out once again and met a California Blonde girl. They married and have six children who all play music better than, and write the English language better than, their father.
