Kevin Ryan and Brian Kehew are co-authors of Recording the Beatles, hailed as the definitive book on the Beatles' studio sessions.

The result of over a decade of painstaking research and extensive interviews, this 500-page volume is the definitive study of how the Beatles' body of music was recorded. The authors will discuss their massive undertaking and share some of the techniques and technology used by the engineers, producers, and artists collectively responsible for one of the most compelling musical legacies of all time. Their presentation will include rare photos of the studios and equipment from Abbey Road in the 1960s.
