Behind the Wall of Illusion

0 out of 5


In Sean MacLeod’s new book on the Fab Four, Behind the Wall of Illusion – the religious, occult and esoteric world of the Beatle, he takes us not only behind their music and personalities but examines the phenomenon that was the Beatles and puts them into perspective as heralds of a new age and conscious development of mankind. You will be surprised, shocked and excited as you read how the Beatles expressed a modern take on the ancient Greek god Dionysus; the symbolism behind the song ‘Yellow Submarine’; why the Beatles’ long hair cultivated spiritual connotations, and much more.


Part of what makes the Beatles so special is that no matter how much you know about the band already – no matter how many times you’ve listened to their songs, no matter how many books about them you’ve read, no matter how much trivia you know, no matter how long you’ve analysed them – there are always new things to learn.

“…a must read for any Beatle fan.” Prof Eoin Devereux, Dept of Sociology, University of Limerick.
