NEW BOOK: That's The Way God Planned It
George Harrison – That’s The Way God Planned It
Author: Kevin Roach
Published by: Trinity Mirror NW
George Harrison – That’s The Way God Planned It is the latest book by Kevin Roach. It’s the third book by the Liverpool author who also wrote The McCartney’s: In The Town Where They Were Born and The Beatles: Living In The Eye Of The Hurricane.
That’s The Way God Planned It looks into the roots of George, his family and the area(s) where he grew up. We learn that his paternal grandparents came from the Old Swan district, which is an area in the east of Liverpool.
The book starts in 1902 with the birth of George’s paternal grandparents, both born in Liverpool, and continues with the birth and early lives of George’s parents. It then looks into the early life of George himself, his schooldays, his relationship with his parents, the birth of the Beatles and also that made him the person he eventually became. It ends in 1963 with the beginning of Beatlemania and the international breakthrough of the band.
Kevin Roach, who also worked on the research of the Martin Scorsese film Living In A Material World, has done an excellent job in uncovering so much (new) information about the Harrison family. The book also includes lots of previously unseen photos of the Harrison family and of places where George grew up. It’s a shame, however, that the book hasn’t been properly edited and therefore contains quite a lot of spelling and punctuation errors. Nevertheless, That’s The Way God Planned It is a great read and a book that every Beatles fan, certainly every George fan, should read.
