The relationship between John Lennon and Paul McCartney was the dynamic center of all that the Beatles did, of all they achieved as musicians and as cultural icons. Noted rock biographer Geoffrey Giuliano delves into the little-known details of John and Paul's rocky friendship to reveal how what was happening in their lives influenced their songs. He analyzes the songs and the albums, addressing each musician's respective contributions in writing and recording. In addition, Giuliano provides a discography, a chronology, and information on songs written for other artists and songs that were never released commercially. Two of Us is a unique in-depth look at the rise and fall of this complicated and contentious songwriting team.

This book, although covering ground covered by many others, still comes across as fresh and new. The author isn't afraid to throw in his opinion every now and again. It's interesting to see the divide between "Maclen" grow as the leadership of the band shifts from one to the other.

Influential, too, for John and Paul wre latter-day saints of the absurd, including Peter Cook and Dudley Moore, Vivian Stanshall and his loony Bonzo Dog Doo-Dah Band, and of course, the inimitable Monty Python's Flying Circus.
