As recommended by USA Today and excerpted on RollingStone.com! Still the Greatest is a love song to the songwriting and recording achievements of Paul, John, George, and Ringo after each struck out on his own. In this creative history, Jackson selects the best songs by each in his solo career and organizes them into fantasy albums they might have formed had they stuck it out. This romp through the post-Beatle history of each artist delves into the circumstances behind the composition, recording, and reception of each work, offering a refreshing take on how spectacular much of the Beatles' second act truly is. Jackson assesses the over seventy albums and nine hundred songs they collectively released, selecting the creme de la creme of their output.
Andrew Grant Jackson has written for Rolling Stone, Yahoo!, Slate's Blogging the Beatles, Baseline Studio System, music magazines Burn Lounge, Mean Street, and Dispatch, and copyedited the Hollywood monthly magazine Ingenue.
