The Beatles in Tune Volume 1 by Mark Lewisohn Mark Lewisohn’s three-part biography, All These Years, is the first true and accurate account of the Beatles, a contextual history built upon impeccable research and written with energy, style, objectivity and insight. The first volume covers the crucial and less-known early period – the Liverpool and Hamburg years of a hungry rock and roll band, when all the sharp characters and situations take shape I attended the book launch in October 2013 at the Liverpool Institute of Arts where John Lennon, Stu Sutcliff Paul McCartney and George Harrison played their first gig in the canteen. There’s a few photos of my trip on this page. The book is available from Amazon here.
There’s a short YouTube video on the book here.
