BTWF: Sigourney Weaver at a Beatles concert
April 2nd, 2019 under Before They Were Famous, 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?
January 16th, 2019 under The Beatles. [ Comments: none ]


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.

Tyga’s defense on the Paul McCartney and Beck Grammy party mishap
February 17th, 2016 under Jimmy Kimmel, The Beatles. [ Comments: none ]


On Monday night, Tyga had a post Grammy party and several celebrities wanted to go. Three of those celebrities were Sir Paul McCartney, Beck and Foo Fighters drummer Taylor Hawkins, but they ran into a little snag when they got there. The bouncer said their names weren’t on the list and they couldn’t get in. What do you do? If you are them, then you leave and go to another party.
Yesterday, when Tyga woke up, he was bombarded with messages about the incident. He took to Twitter and said, “Why would I deny @PaulMcCartney stop it. He’s a legend 🙏🏾,” following it up with, “I don’t control the door. I had no knowledge SIR PAUL was there. I just performed and left.”
He should know who Sir Paul McCartney is because his girlfriend’s sister’s husband recorded a song with him. When it comes to Beck, he should also know who he is because his girlfriend’s sister’s husband dissed him at last year’s Grammys. And with that I believe his story that he had no idea what happened until the next day.
If you still don’t believe him, then maybe this will help. Here’s what he told Jimmy Kimmel yesterday, “I really wish I knew he was outside, I would’ve went out there with the mic, brought him in to perform Rack City with me.”
To make amends about the whole situation, Tyga invited Sir Paul to his show in LA on February 26th. This time he will make sure his name is on the list.

I imagine, John Lennon wrote his song for moments like this!
January 13th, 2015 under The Beatles. [ Comments: none ]

On Sunday, almost 4 million people gathered in Paris to attend a rally for unity after the horrible week they had in their city due to those murderous terrorists. During the peaceful gathering, someone played John Lennon’s Imagine, and the crowd sang along and applauded to it.
I imagine, this is what he intended his song to be used for when he wrote back in 1971. Not for contestants on singing competition shows, but for getting the word out there about peace. I wonder if he was like Nostradamus as he jotted down these words. “Imagine there’s no countries. It isn’t hard to do. Nothing to kill or die for. And no religion too. Imagine all the people living life in peace” In that moment we all imagined it as we saw their heads moving to his music and heard his words coming from their mouths. Those lyrics never had more meaning than they did for those few inspirational minutes.
This video gave me chills because when we have thought of Imagine in the past, we thought of it for a time like this. It is the perfect interpretation of the World’s most powerful song ever have been recorded.
I conclude this post with another one of his songs, “All we are saying is give peace a chance.”
