Well, this is the reason why I always thought that this significant task should have been given to a team of (serious and selected) Beatle historians instead of the poor shoulders of one man alone. 30 years (maybe more), it's really a gigantic work ! (and of course this has nothing to do with Mark's incontestable qualities to finish the task successfully).

But, as said Zipp, it is essentially a matter of timing. A good team of qualified Beatle historians (under the supervision of Mark Lewisohn of course) would perfectly do the job. And you would get the books much more earlier !

This practice is very current in the French University where many books are written by teams of good specialists (each one writing his own chapter or maybe more) under the direction of one or two professors. Of course, the whole work is regularly standardized so that there is no (or little) difference in the writing styles.

I sincerely think that would be a good solution for all.

Eric  ;)

I will have forgotten most of part 1 when part 2 comes out. Good to see you around, Eric. Have you got anything Beatles coming up bookwise?

80 is young, my Mother died 2 years ago aged 92, smoked for 50 years and never ate fruit

Then I'll be just a kid at 67. But just to be sure I'm going to start smoking and stop eating fruit. Seriously, though, the smoking didn't do much for my dad or my brother's longevity. My dad was 66 and my brother 51 when they died.

We have to thank Mark for giving us all something to live (long) for  ;)

Hi Cor,
Sorry for my late reply (hope you don't mind!). Yes, I'm sure that it would be a realistic solution for all because otherwise I'm afraid we will have to wait a lot of time to get the complete volumes. And I know what I'm talking about : As you know, I'm currently working (along with my friend Jean-Claude Hocquet) for years now on volume two of the book La France et les Beatles, and we are able to say that we discover previously unknown information almost everyday! The subject itself is absolutely gigantic and we definitely know now that we'll also have to revise entirely volume one - published in 2005 - which can be increased at least of 30% more new information. This is quite amazing! And I'm just talking about France, so you can easily imagine when the work is extended to other countries such as Great Britain, Sweden, Holland, USA, Canada, Japan, Italy, Spain, Hong-Kong, Manilla...
As we say in France, this could be a real "Tour de Force"!....
Within the next future we will open a special website dedicated to our new work and we will explain how the things will develop as far as our research is concerned. Useless to say that this is a very exciting and refreshing work!  ;)
PS : Both books will be published in French and English languages.

No, I don't mind.  icon_cool  I'm glad you drop in every now and then to provide us with information.

Is there anything about Rory Storm and the Hurricanes (including Ringo) performing in France in the book as well?

Thanks, Bobber!  :)  Yes, we try to find every document and information available, and we were quite surprised by the mass of knowledge we got so far. That was totally unexpected!

Yes, we also got new information concerning Rory Storm and the Hurricanes performing in the west coast of France, although the main scoops are above all concentrated on the 1964 year, with the three-week engagement of the Beatles at the Olympia theatre in January and February.

You're welcome - definitely his most revealing in terms of the challenges he's faced, financial and otherwise, to make this project happen. He published a really cool tweet to all the people who keep tweeting saying, 'hurry up' and 'publish it now' - basically, 'this interview tells you why I won't and can't do that!'. I'm on the Beatles Bible Fab Forum and there are people on there grumbling that they'll be dead before volume 2 comes out. Unbelievable. I'm really excited about it but I'm still returning to the Extended Edition and getting new things that I'd missed etc. Like all good things, it's worth the wait and when it arrives you savour it all the more.

New material, stories and people from the period covered in volume one, "Tune In" has turned up after it's publication, but will not be included in the upcoming paperback edition of that book. Lewisohn says that it will be used in some way, but is still not sure how and when.

It would make sense to eventually add new info to a revised edition when Mark can eventually get around to it. He obviously has a lot on his plate at the moment. I am guessing he also doesn't want to say anything that will affect sales of the current edition.

From Conan O'Brien's website:


Conan talks with acclaimed Beatles biographer Mark Lewisohn, whose biographical history trilogy delves into the Fab Four as never before and explains why Paul &​ Ringo might actually be the worst authority on the Beatles.

Maybe using a different browser would work, zipp. I had to fool around with it a bit in Firefox but in Chrome it was business as usual.

I don't know if this has been posted anywhere else but there is another recent Mark Lewisohn interview with Stephen K Peeples. Part 1 is here and the other three parts follow on.
