Humphries, Patrick

Humphries, Patrick

Over the years he has contributed to Mojo, The Observer, Evening Standard, Daily Mail, The Times, Heat, Record Collector, and many, many more. He also writes and presents documentary programmes for BBC Radio 2 and Radio 4. Among the books he has written were the first biographies of Nick Drake, Fairport Convention and Richard Thompson. He has also tackled Tom Waits, Dylan and Springsteen.

2024 sees the publication of his new book, With The Beatles. It is based on his interviews with Paul, George, and Ringo, as well as looking at how the Beatle brand has developed since the group split in 1970. It is also the first full-length biography in nearly 20 years. So that’s everything from Liverpool in 1940 to their 2023 No.1 single. Patrick will be joining us on Convention Day in conversation with our good friend, Spencer Leigh.
