The Love You Make: An Insider's Story of The Beatles

by Peter Brown (with Steven Gaines)

First Published by McGraw-Hill (US) and Macmillan (UK), 1983



Both this books's title, and its author's name, represent powerful fragments of Beatles lore. Peter Brown was best man at John Lennon's wedding to Yoko Ono - in fact he also later filled the same role for Paul McCartney - and was immortalised by Lennon, in 'The Ballad of John & Joko', as the man wo "called to say, you can make it ok, you can get married in Gibraltar near Spain". The book's title is taken from the appropriately-named Beatles song 'The End', quoted in the frontispiece:

And in the end

The love you take
Is equal to the love
You make.

—The last lyric from the last song on the last Beatles album
