Living the Beatles’ Legend: Kenneth Womack with Tom Dunne & Paul Howard

on Mal Evans

A towering figure in horn-rimmed glasses, Malcolm "Mal" Evans was an invaluable member of The Beatles’ inner circle. Serving as their long-time roadie, personal assistant and protector, he was a sometime lyricist, occasional performer and regular fixer at the height of the group’s fame and beyond. But Mal’s dedication to his beloved ‘boys’ and his own desire for stardom took its toll, leading to the dissolution of his marriage and his untimely death in January 1976.

Until now, Mal’s extraordinary life has remained shrouded in mystery. Drawing on hundreds of exclusive interviews and with full access to Mal’s unpublished archives – including his personal diaries, manuscripts and memorabilia – renowned Beatles scholar Kenneth Womack (Solid State, Sound Pictures, Maximum Volume) discusses his portrait of this complicated figure at the heart of the Beatles’ story with uber Beatles fans, Tom Dunne (Newstalk, Something Happens) and Paul Howard (I Read the News Today, Oh Boy, Ross O'Carroll-Kelly), plus live music from cellist and composer Vyvienne Long and singer-songwriter Jon Ward.

Living the Beatles' Legend is a fascinating but ultimately tragic tale about life at the edges of superstardom.
