Lly spearheaded by key aides of President Nixon caught on tape with a drug addled Elvis Presley that wound endlessly through the courts In Baby You’re a Rich Man Stan Soocher ties the Beatles’ ongoing legal troubles to some of their most enduring songs What emerges is a stirring portrait of immense creative talent thriving under the pressures of ill will harassment and greedPraise for They Fought the Law Rock Music Goes to Court“Stan Soocher not only ably translates the legalese but makes both the plaintiffs and defendants engrossingly human Mandatory reading for every artist who tends to skip his contract’s fine print” Entertainment Weekl. Baby You re a Rich Man by Stan Soocher is a very interesting read This volume ties together the various legal and financial battles which surrounded the Beatles as soon as they began to make money I would likely have given 45 stars if available my only issue is something that is difficult to completely avoid when writing about these issues a certain amount of dryness creeps in periodically That said Soocher keeps that to a minimum and never loses sight of the artistic aspect of the groupDefinitely recommended for any Beatles fan as well as those interested in the business side of the music business This would also serve as a nice cautionary tale for any aspiring artists out thereReviewed from a copy made available by the publisher via LibraryThing
