68. The Lost Beatles Interviews; 69. Tintin and the Picaros; 70. Wilco: Learning How to Die

The Lost Beatles Interviews
by Geoffrey Giuliano and Brenda Giuliano

Started: January 29, 2010
Finished: January 30, 2010

A collection of press conference transcriptions and other assorted radio/television interviews with the Beatles plus a bunch of interviews with people on the periphery of the Beatles fame like relatives and hangers-on. There's nothing truly earth-shattering here, most of the really good information has appeared in much better books, but I guess it was an OK read. Nothing special. 382 pages. Grade: B-

Tintin and the Picaros
by Herge

Started/Finished: January 30, 2010

This was another boring Tintin adventure. Only one more to go! 64 pages. Grade: C-

Wilco: Learning How to Die
by Greg Kot

Started: January 29, 2010
Finished: January 30, 2010

The Wilco part of this biography was just decent, nothing I hadn't really read before in a hundred different music magazines/websites over the last nine years, but the first half of the book was a great detailed history of Uncle Tupelo, with a lot of info that I hadn't read before. 244 pages. Grade: B+
