Diana and Historian Erin Torkelson Weber discuss the Fab 4 Myth: How it was constructed, its accuracy, and how the Beatles tried to break free of it. They explore the importance of Cleave interviews and the Hunter Davies official biography as attempts to escape the constraints of their image. This conversation is based on the ideas contained in Erin Torkelson Weber's book: Beatles and the Historians: An Analysis of Writings about the Fab Four.
