Allan Kozinn was a music critic and culture reporter for the New
York Times from 1977 to 2014, where he wrote principally about
classical music. In that capacity, he interviewed Paul McCartney

Lonestar Roadhouse, playing rock oldies at the Cavern, in
Liverpool, and performing in small halls like the Ed Sullivan
Theater and the Highline Ballroom, to full-scale concerts at
Madison Square Garden and Yankee Stadium. He currently contributes
regularly to the Wall Street Journal, the Washington Post and other
publications. He has taught courses at the Juilliard School and New
York University (including a course on the Beatles at the latter),
and has written seven books, among them The Beatles - From The
Cavern To The Rooftop (1995), Got That Something! How The Beatles'
'I Want To Hold Your Hand' Changed Everything (2013), The New York
Times Essential Guide - Classical Music (2004).
