A tweet from Mark Lewisohn on September 29th: "Vol 2 still on track for 2020, with vast amount of research still to be done."

I'm reading the standard version and think it's great. I'm just up to 1958. I found the death of Julia incredibly sad and with so much detail.

I read the Daily Mail review here
http://www.dailymail.co.uk/home/event/article-2452115/Craig-Brown-reviews-new-Beatles-book-The-Fab-snore.html
which implies it is boring and asks ....

"You may well want to know that George Harrison’s first car was a Ford Anglia. Fair enough.
But do you need to know that it was a second-hand, two-door, blue Ford Anglia 105E Deluxe, bought by George from Brian Epstein’s friend Terry Doran who worked at a dealership in Warrington?"


To us die hard Beatles fans the answer is a definite yes. The more details the better. The article fails to grasp that the fine details have been raked over and over for decades so any new piece of information however small is like gold dust. I could happily read the extended version to get more of those minute details.  I can understand someone with only a passing interest might find it hard going.

Just another note as I'm still reading this. Something just occurred to me. I wonder if Paul switching to bass was a tactical move to ensure Stu didn't get back in the band? The only reason I mention it is I saw a pic of Stu on stage with The Beatles a few months after they'd returned from Hamburg and Paul has already taken the bass role by converting a guitar. Lewisohn mentions how much Paul disliked Stu and was probably jealous of his closeness to John. He'd also been demoted in the pecking order. At this stage Paul couldn't have been sure that Stu wouldn't have left Hamburg for good and wanted his old job back.

The pic is here.   http://www.beatlesource.com/savage/1961/61.02.12%20casbah/61.02.12casbah.html

The matter on Stu's playing has been and will always be a matter of discussion I'm afraid. Lewisohn states that Stu was hardly into playing the bass at all. He played with the Beatles during to long nights during their first visit to Hamburg in the autumn of 1960, but did not return home with them directly. I'm not exactly sure when Stu returned to Liverpool, but in the meantime Chas Newby played with them on a few gigs and although Paul's Rosetti has three strings and looks like a bass, it is also stated that he just mimed most of the times. In those early days of 1961, when The Beatles where really taking off, it was just Pete's drums, Johns and Georges guitar and their vocals. No bass at all, as Pauls Rosetti was almost falling apart. They quickly returned to Hamburg to play at The Top Ten and Paul was either at the piano or at the microphone. Stuart was playing the bass then. Though Stu stayed and played with them till July 1st, when The Beatles returned to Liverpool, Stu did not come back with them and it was obvious someone had to pick up the bass. Lewisohn states that Paul bought his Hofner somewhere mid-June 1961.

I'm rereading bits of this book on holiday. I love the detailed machinations and still uncertainties about the Decca incident. Always more complicated than legend has it. Lewisohn's analysis is cute too. Rowe spent more money taking Brian out to lunch to tell him they were rejecting the Beatles than it would have cost to simply sign them and give them a go.

I know what you mean! I got a kick out of that too.
