Lewisohn book website

Mark Lewisohn's definitive three-volume Beatles biography which finally debuts this autumn, now has a home on the web: thebeatlesbiography.com. There's also a twitter account to follow: @beatlesbook. The first volume is due out in October, deals with the years prior to 1963 and is entitled "Tune in". We won't be surprised if the other titles will be "turn on" and "drop out"....

It seems odd that Lewisohn would use a Timothy Leary LSD quote for the subtitles of his trilogy. Psychedelia was only one chapter in their story and Leary a minor character at best.

To me, 'tune in' would symbolize tuning in to the group, as one would have on the Beeb or Radio Luxembourg.

"That is you can't, you know, tune in, but it's all right..."
