Lewisohn’s Beatles Biography Hits Another Snag

By posted at 11:00 am on August 25, 2012 1

Leading Beatles historian Mark Lewisohn has been working on a three-volume biography of the Liverpool band for almost a decade. Tentatively titled The Beatles: The Complete Story, the first installment was due for a publication date this year. Unfortunately, Volume One, which tracks the group from the beginning through December 1962, has hit yet another delay, and fans likely won’t see it until 2013. As Lewisohn says, the accuracy takes time, and “the whole ethos of the project is ‘do the job properly’.” Lewisohn’s last work was the 2006 Complete Beatles Recording Sessions.

    The Complete Beatles Recording Sessions was published in 1988. The publication date that I’m assuming the author got from Amazon was for the latest edition. Since then he’s published The Complete Beatles Chronicle in 1992. It’s been far too long since his last book. I can’t wait for this to come out, but I will (obviously).
