Chrome Dreams have just released a new book about the Beatles. It’s titled THE WALRUS WAS RINGO and reveals a number of facts about the Fab Four as completely untrue. Even the 'final word' on the subject, as documented by 3/4 of the band in the form of 2000's 'Anthology' autobiography, can be proven to be inaccurate.

Esteemed Beatles experts Alan Clayson and Spencer Leigh have spent several years and between them interviewed thousands of individuals from the Beatles Story, and at last the truth can be dissected from the fiction. 'The Walrus Was Ringo' collects together 101 short essays savaging some of the most commonly held beliefs about the most famous band ever.

Such beliefs as: - The Beatles never recorded together again after the Abbey Road sessions in 1970 - Paul McCartney's original title for Yesterday was Scrambled Eggs - John Lennon was a 'Working Class Hero' - Stuart Sutcliffe died from a brain haemorrhage after being beaten up by John Lennon - Ringo was the Beatles drummer for the majority of their career - Elvis equals The Beatles for UK No. 1 hits. Every one of these statements, and 95 others in a similar vein, is untrue and this book proves it.

The book is available at all major record stores and can also be obtained via the Chrome Dreams website ( and the Amazon Internet store (
