Mark Lewisohn on The Beatles
Mark Lewisohn is the independent historian of The Beatles, who is working on a three-volume history, All These Years. The first volume was published in November 2013. In this event for Jewish Book Week, he dwells at least a little on the story’s Jewish elements – from managers to marriages and the bravura blend of Jewish and black talents – the so-called Rhythm ‘n’ Jews mix that underpinned rock and roll and created so much of the music that shaped The Beatles.
Mark Lewisohn is considered the world’s leading Beatles historian for books such as Recording Sessions, The Complete Beatles Chronicle and The Beatles’ London guidebook. Tune In, the first volume of his biographical trilogy All These Years, was published to great acclaim in 2013.Daniel Finkelstein
