Yoko Ono is throwing an 80th birthday party for John Lennon
September 22nd, 2020 under The Beatles. [ Comments: none ]

On October 9th, John Lennon would have turned 80 had he not been shot shortly after his 40th birthday on December 8, 1980. Imagine all he could have done had that not happened?

In honor of the milestone, his widow, Yoko Ono, is planning on giving the Beatle a birthday party on She says we can expect, “great artists, great people and great songs.” Along with “previously unseen and unheard John Lennon music and films.”

I am sure as we get closer to the date, we will get more details about who will be there. I am hoping the celebration of his life includes his two sons, Julian and Sean, and his bandmates, Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr.

If ever there was time that we needed a reminder of what John Lennon stood for, it is now.


Is Ringo Starr really about to turn 80?
July 1st, 2020 under Are they really their age?, The Beatles. [ Comments: none ]

Ringo Starr is going to turn the big 8-0 on July 7th, and he is inviting you to his star-studded birthday party at 12p. Since it is all about peace and love, he wants you to join him from your homes. This way we can all be safe and also protect the oldest and youngest Beatles member.

Seriously, can you believe he is going to be 16 years over 64 in less than a week? Because he still looks like the age of that song. You know, the one where they ask if we will still love them when they’re 64? It is like he never ages. I guess peace and love is the answer to his youthful looks and attitude, so let’s practice it on July 7th and every other day of the year. What can it hurt?


BTWF: Sigourney Weaver at a Beatles concert
April 2nd, 2019 under Before They Were Famous, Sigourney Weaver, The Beatles. [ Comments: none ]

Before Sigourney Weaver was screaming in Alien, she was screaming for The Beatles. She looks the same now as she did when she was 14 at that 1964 concert at the Hollywood Bowl.


Do you think this pothole looks like Paul McCartney?

The Lancaster Post is asking for a little help from their friends and they wanted to know if they see Paul McCartney’s face in this pothole.

All together now, do you see it? Personally, I see the comic strip version of Little Orphan Annie, but maybe if I did some Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds I would see the Beatle.

BTW I wonder if when Macca wrote Fixing a Hole, that over 50 years later there would be a hole in the ground in his image?

The only thing that would make this story better is if the pothole was on Penny Lane.


All 4 of The Beatles were never in the same room together after they split
September 7th, 2018 under The Beatles. [ Comments: none ]

Back in 1969, The Beatles split up. On December 8, 1980, John Lennon was murdered outside his apartment in Manhattan. In those 11 years, Lennon, Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr and George Harrison were never all in the same room together. That was one of the many interesting things that McCartney told Howard Stern about the other day on his radio show.

Stern asked his guest, who broke up The Beatles? Without hesitation, he said, “John.” Then he explained what went down. He said, “There was a meeting where, John came in and said, ‘Hey guys, I am leaving the group.'” Was Yoko Ono the cause as many have speculated? Looking back at it now, McCartney says that Lennon was very much in love. McCartney now respects him for that.

McCartney also shared that Lennon liked strong women like his mother, his aunt who raised him and Ono. McCartney said that Cynthia Lennon was not strong and wanted a husband that would stay home with her. That was not John.

After the band split, McCartney and Lennon started attacking each other through their songs. But then one they stopped and the became pals again. Something that McCartney was glad happened before Lennon was shot on that fateful night. Imagine, if they did not.

When it comes to the split, I still think that McCartney had a part in it. But I am biased because my dad once did a play about Lennon and they blamed McCartney for the split.
