London, April 04: Photographs showing British group ‘The Beatles’ at the height of their fame have been published in a new book.
The pictures, taken during the time they held the top five positions in the US singles chart in 1964, show the extent of the band`s popularity and the mania that enveloped them both in the US and the UK at the time.
Photographer Curt Gunther, who had been given access to the Fab Four both on stage and behind the scenes, had clicked the pictures.
He has now published some of the images in a book titled ‘Forty Five Years On: Remembering The Day The Beatles Conquered America’.
Included in the set of black and white photographs was a picture showing fans scrambling onto the stage in front of Paul McCartney and George Harrison.
