Carry That Weight: The Story of the Beatles is written by Mr. Ernie Schultze. In 1980, John Lennon, a rock star best known for his association with Liverpool, England sensation The Beatles was gunned down on the street outside his New York residence. This tragedy ended the world-revered life of an iconic figure in the music world. Lennon was born in 1940 amidst the atrocities of World War II. John Lennon and four other musicians formed the historic rock and roll band, The Beatles. Over time, The Beatles accumulated a cult following as well as a mythical existence. Ask yourself what you would be without the influences of Abbey Road.

In realistic fiction at its finest, author Mr. Ernie Schultze offers a twist to the coveted story of this groundbreaking group of unique musicians. Conspiracy theorists: beware. Midway through this easy-to-read story, reality slips into fantasy and forces the reader to rethink the possibilities of the band as we know it. Known for such number one hits as Hey Jude and A Hard Day's Night, were The Beatles who they were portrayed to be? Or were they simply the walrus? Written fluidly in standard English, Carry That Weight is an entertaining, yet disturbing perspective on the life of the band responsible for molding the ideals of a majority of the 20th century's future leaders, celebrities, and artists. While at their conception The Beatles may have been the scorn of many a parent, without their influences on society the world might be a far darker place.
