New Beatles Biography Hopes To Deconstruct Myths

A new biography of the Beatles aims to get to the bottom of the mythology surrounding the Fab Four. The book is titled Tune In, and author Mark Lewisohn says he hopes it will breathe new life into the band's history.

"It's a story that's lost all its excitement, because it's been trodden down through too many bad tellings through the years," Lewisohn told CNN.

"I just felt I would disregard everything that's been done. I would start again . . . It's not about legends, it's not about icons, it's not about myths. The book is anti-myth."

Tune In is the first in the series of the three-part Beatles history, The Beatles: All These Years. The 800 page volume is in stores now.
