Come together : Lennon & McCartney in the seventies

Although it wasn't made official until an announcement from Paul McCartney in 1970, The Beatles spent most of the late 1960s breaking up. The split was marked my animosity and acrimony, with pointed conflict, in particular, between the groups' two most prolific songwriters, John Lennon and Paul McCartney. Lennon left the band in 1969, and the '70s were marked by public feuding as the band members embarked on solo careers. Come Together is a compelling account of a crucial period in post-'60s Beatles history, providing a new look at the Lennon-McCartney relationship from an entirely new perspective, emphasizing the efforts these larger-than-life rock stars made to overcome their enmity. It also offers fresh insight on the musical ambitions and personal motivations for renewing a creative alliance that so nearly happened but was thwarted by circumstances beyond their control.
