Tune In: The Beatles: All These Years

Tune In is the first volume of All These Years—a highly-anticipated, groundbreaking biographical trilogy by the world’s leading Beatles historian. Mark Lewisohn uses his unprecedented archival access and hundreds of new interviews to construct the full story of the lives and work of John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison, and Ringo Starr.

Ten years in the making, Tune In takes the Beatles from before their childhoods through the final hour of 1962—when, with breakthrough success just days away, they stand on the cusp of a whole new kind of fame and celebrity. They’ve one hit record (“Love Me Do”) behind them and the next (“Please Please Me”) primed for release, their first album session is booked, and America is clear on the horizon.  This is the lesser-known Beatles story—the pre-Fab years of Liverpool and Hamburg—and in many respects the most absorbing and incredible period of them all. Here is the complete and true account of their family lives, childhoods, teenage years and their infatuation with American music, here is the riveting narrative of their unforgettable days and nights in the Cavern Club, their laughs, larks and adventures when they could move about freely, before fame closed in.  

For those who’ve never read a Beatles book before, this is the place to discover the young men behind the icons. For those who think they know John, Paul, George, and Ringo, it’s time to press the Reset button and tune into the real story, the lasting word.

From the Hardcover edition.

Q&A with Mark Lewisohn

Q. So much has been written about the Beatles, why is this book different to all other books?

A. ‘We know everything there is to know about the Beatles, so what else can possibly be written?’ People say that all the time – and I don’t agree with it for a second. I wouldn’t argue the Beatles’ story has been told often, but I would argue that it can’t be told again and differently. It’s been related the same old way for so very long and it’s also dying under the suffocating blanket of ‘celebrity’. I want to start again, I want to press the Refresh button.

This is a comprehensive biography, three volumes, a sequential history in which I set out to relate everything that happened, and do so with integrity, attention to detail, accuracy and, I believe, a fair understanding of where the story needs to be told and how to tell it. I’m writing so it unfolds as if in real time – there’s no hindsight cleverness, so you get a vivid sense of the forward movement. The Beatles’ story always had tremendous energy, speed, vitality – and this must be tangible to the reader.

It all boils down to this. They were four war babies from Liverpool who really did change the world, and whose music and impact still lives on in so many ways, after all these years. I say, let’s scrub what we know, or think we know, and start over: Who really were these people, and how did it all happen?

Q. What period of the story does Tune In cover?

A. It ends on 31 December 1962, with the Beatles on the cusp of their phenomenal breakthrough, but with everything having fallen well into place – all the people, places, personalities, situations, organisation. So I’m writing about the Liverpool and Hamburg years, the formative years, the teenage years and the childhood years, and all the family backgrounds in a Who Do They Think They Are?-style history – and these families were almost as fascinating as their famous offspring. The three volumes aren’t only about ‘who these people were’ but ‘what made them what they were?’ I begin this history in 1845; there’s a fair deal of Irish blood in the Beatles and I start with the potato famine, which forces the Lennons into Liverpool. Then it moves swiftish through the next hundred years and becomes very solid from the Second World War and the arrival of all the main players.

I’m sure it won’t surprise anyone to learn that the Beatles didn’t suddenly grow personalities when they had a hit record – that their talent, originality and relentless desire to move on fast, to try new things, was already well in place in their early years. I’m sure no one would be amazed to find the Beatles didn’t become instantly remarkable when they conquered Britain, America and much of the world, or funny when they filmed A Hard Day’s Night, or inventive when recording Revolver or Sgt Pepper. It was always who they were, a continuation of what was going in all these earlier years, except more visible. The richness of the stories to come in books two and three is also in volume one all the way through. Really, everything was revved up and running in these formative years, in the halls, houses and streets of Liverpool, the only place these people and those events could have happened.

Q. You have a long professional association with the Beatles, and some of them individually. Are they involved in Tune In and is this book authorized?

A. No. I received the odd tiny bit of help which I specifically asked for and they didn’t have to give – but substantially no, they’re not involved. That’s fine, because it’s what I expected and what I wanted. This has to be an independent and impartial book. But are the all main players appearing and speaking at the book’s core? Yes, constantly. Paul McCartney decided not to talk to me for this particular project, and I completely respect and understand his reasons – but I’ve interviewed him maybe fifteen times in the past and I’ve also sourced other quotes of great strength and immediacy for all the players.

One of many reasons the Beatles’ achievements and reputation sustain with such integrity is because they were true. They stood for truth, projected truth and lived truthfully as best they could. It’s entirely right that their history is written as true as possible, with no embroidery, nothing faked or glossed, nothing stupidly interpreted, everything transparent, everything attributed. Of course my attachment to this subject is deep and lifelong, but I’m not the least bit interested in writing a book simply to say how great they were. They certainly don’t need that, and I certainly wouldn’t do it. It’d be a waste of my time. My passion is for learning everything I can about this subject, understanding it, and doing my best to set it down clearly so it can be understood relative to what happened.

The Beatles Lyrics: The Stories Behind the Music, Including the Handwritten Drafts of More Than 100 Classic Beatles Songs

The Beatles Lyrics: The Stories Behind the Music, Including the Handwritten Drafts of More Than 100 Classic Beatles Songs

The definitive book of Beatles songs, shown as first written by their own hands and put into authoritative context, for the 50th anniversary of the Beatles coming to America.

For the Beatles, writing songs was a process that could happen anytime — songs we all know by heart often began as a scribble on the back of an envelope or on hotel stationery. These original documents have ended up scattered across the world at museums and universities and with collectors and friends. Many have never been published before. More than 100 songs and lyrics are reproduced in THE BEATLES LYRICS, providing Hunter Davies a unique platform to tell the story of the music.

The intimacy of these reproductions — there are sections crossed out and rewritten, and words tossed into the final recordings that were never written down — ensures that THE BEATLES LYRICS will be a treasure for musicians, scholars, and fans everywhere.

San Marcos Rattler Alumni Association Announces Nationally Acclaimed Tribute ‘Beatles’ Band, The Eggmen Will Entertain the All Class Rattler Reunion, October 10th


San Marcos, TX (PRWEB) September 14, 2014

The morning of November 22, 1963 started out with much excitement and dreamy thoughts for the Sr. Class of 1964: it was Homecoming and they would be having their Sr. Class Homecoming Dance tonight, an annual tradition. This was their prom. But all of sudden everything changed by 1:00 pm that afternoon, as the world learned that JFK had been killed in Dallas, TX, and by 3:00 pm, it was sadly announced that the ‘Homecoming Prom’ was cancelled. The Sr. class understood, but they hoped that they would have their event sometime later that year; it never happened. And later after graduation they all said they would have it at one of their reunions, but again it didn’t happen. But 50 years later the San Marcos Rattler Alumni Association will have a special ‘Homecoming Dance’ at the Rattler All Class Reunion.

Now for the rest of the story….. a few months later in February of 1964, ‘The Beatles’ invaded America, and many writers and articles said that one of the reasons for Beatlemania that swept through America, was that the Beatles music & celebrity status made Americans stop mourning JFK’s death. The largest TV audience of 74 million saw the Beatles on Ed Sullivan in February, 1964. After that night America’s Baby Boomers would never be the same again.

It is so ironic that the theme for the Senior Homecoming dance was ‘West Side Story’, which of course required a New York City set. Now comes present day 2014 and the theme for this year Reunion was ‘Purple & White, New York City’ theme. And believe it or not, the reunion committee and members did not find this out until after the theme had been set. Donna Holstrom Watson class of 64 called us when she read about the New York theme for the Rattler Reunion, and it was then that she related the story of Homecoming on Nov. 22, 1963.

And now to celebrate their reunion and all rattler classmates, the (Beatles return) Eggmen acclaimed as one of the best, if not the best ‘Beatles Tribute’ bands in the USA. And if you haven’t gotten it yet, it is also the Beatles 50th Anniversary on arriving in America, and the rest is history as they say. Today 50 years later The Beatles music is loved by all ages, from teenagers to Seniors. There is a Beatles Tribute Band that plays every week in Vegas for the last 10 years or so. In addition to the ‘Eggmen’ band, the Grooves a Texas Party Band since 1991 will provide classic rock, Motown, oldies, disco, rock and roll, country, standards, swing, eighties dance, plus all the most up to date dance music.

Along with the two bands there will be a reception starting at 5:30 pm in honor of all past ‘Distinguished Alumni’ for the past 10 years. Then a nice dinner will follow, and the program. With two great Bands and a major celebration, the All Class Rattler Purple & White, New York City theme will be a party and a Reunion that will be remembered for another fifty years.
