From the Examiner: Lewisohn is now saying the extended edition will be available again, but he's not sure when.

I realized the Beatles Bible link to Tune In was lost, so reposting.

Open letter to Mr. Lewisohn:

We have recently learned you may be following these threads about your absolutely wonderful book. If you are reading this, please forgive me for repeating something I posted in the other thread.

It deeply concerns me that the third and final volume will not be published until around 2028. I have to believe you are perfectly aware that those of us born in the 1960's and prior - those of us that were either growing up alongside the music or the boys themselves - stand a good chance of never seeing it come to fruition. As for me, I was born in November 1963 and have been an avid fan of the Fabs since early 1968 as a four year old (yes, really). That means, if I wish to read the third and final volume, I will have to live until at least age 64 (since my birthday is later in the year). While through the wonders of modern medicine, people are living longer these days, there are no guarantees in life. There is also no guarantee, should I live that long, I will have the mental capacity to understand it or even remember that I once loved the Beatles. This is not a case of "oh, poor me". It is a grim, real possibility that all of us in my generation and generations before me must face. In your defense, I realize the incredible amount of research, interviews, fact checking, etc... that goes into such an endeavor. If the next two volumes are anything like the first, they will no doubt be worth waiting for...if we should live so long.

In closing; anything you can do to either speed up your writing process or slow down my aging process would be greatly appreciated. You can control only one of these processes. I will do my best to control the other. Thanks for reading.

Always your fan,

Zig

PS: Going forward, I will do nothing in these threads except let everyone know why I love the book.
