Brand new here, nice to meet everyone! I have heard/read many references to Lewisohn's conversation with George in which George said something to the effect of "how can know what happened? You weren't there." Does anyone have a source for the circumstances surrounding that quote? E.G., when, where, etc? Thanks!

Hi @John McStarkeyson, thanks for your question. I'm sure someone here will have and answer for you.

That sentiment form George sounds a lot like Paul in Early Days on his New album:

Now everybody seems to have their own opinion
Who did this and who did that
But as for me I don’t see how they can remember
When they weren’t where it was at

I hope you stick around and converse with us. If you would like to introduce yourself to the forum, here's the thread to do so

From Mark Lewisohn's FB:

Last Wednesday afternoon I had the pleasure of being interviewed on BBC 6 Music by Mark Radcliffe & Stuart Maconie, Live At The BBC’s new studios in Salford. Every Radcliffe & Maconie show is worth hearing, so here’s the whole thing (if you have three hours to spare). My own bit runs 22 minutes, from 1.36.11 to 1.58.15.

Examiner article mentioning that the book will be coming out on paperback next year.

Wish it were the extended version.

The paperback edition of Tune In is now listed on Amazon.co.uk, out on 5 May 2015. It's not yet on the US site.

I also noticed that the Kindle version of the extended edition is now £20x2. It was £39x2 when it came out.

I would like to know if the paperback edition carries any updates or a new intro. When I met Mark he seemed very aware of the discussions that had taken place online about his handling of various issues (notably the deaths of
Julia Lennon and Mary McCartney). He was also assailed by people saying "Mark! I've got something you'd be interested in!" I bet quite a bit of new information has emerged since he submitted the manuscript to Little, Brown.

Absolutely - given how meticulous Mark appears to be (though I know him through his writing only) I'd be very surprised if he isn't itching to make a fair few tweaks and additions. I guess this will depend on whether the publisher allows him the opportunity to do this, and whether the author himself has the time, inclination and remaining energy(!) to do so.

Taking lessons from Paul and Apple. 

I think i'm going to have it written into my will that those who want to keep their inheritance from me have to open my coffin and throw in these two remaining volumes, the 'Let it Be' film and Paul's complete archive collection just so i did finally get them as the way things are going i am not going to get them whilst alive.

2020 - 2021 for volume 2. 2027 for volume 3!!!!!!!

 

And everyone was in a rush to read volume 1.

Currently reading January to June 1957 of this book. I'm still getting my head around having to read 350 pages before John meets Paul for the first time.a-hard-days-night-ringo-13 Most Beatles books have reached the split by page 350 (if they even get that many pages).

Normally you get "John Lennon was born at some point and then he met Paul (who also had been born) and they released a single in 1962 called 'Love Me Do' with a guy called George and some lucky dude called Ringo".*

 

*You might think thats bad but there are worse Beatles books out there.
