When Dylan met the Beatles – history in a handshake?

Just as a stopped clock tells the right time twice a day, the 50th anniversary of a major Beatle-related happening comes around every other week in 2014. Friday marks one of the bigger half-century landmarks, and the birth of a way of looking at rock music that just won't go away. On Friday 28 August 1964, in a room in the Delmonico hotel at Park Avenue and 59th in New York City – at a rendezvous brokered with a keen eye to a story by journalist, mutual friend and assiduous self-publicist Al Aronowitz – the Beatles encountered Bob Dylan for the first time.

My Turn: Beatles concert at Hollywood Bowl in 1965 left lasting impression on two obsessed teens

Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band” remain my two favorite recordings. Read More

‘Me and John were starting to really cook’: Paul McCartney on the Beatles’ breakthrough with Revolver

Powered along by a double-sided No. 1 in “Eleanor Rigby/Yellow Submarine,” Revolver would top both the UK and American album charts, staying at Billboard’s No. 1 for six weeks. If the project had little in common with the Beatles’ most recent release, 1965′s more folk-leaning Rubber Soul, that was also in keeping with their growing sense of confidence in their own muses.

Classic George Harrison Interview Animated

"I think anything impressed me… in those days!" By 1987, George Harrison wasn't impressed with much: after the Beatles called it a day. George made a bunch of solo albums, but by the late '80s, had slowed down his output considerably, although he'd just returned with Cloud Nine, his first album in five years - a long time between albums back then. That was a top ten album, and yielded the No. 1 hit single, "Got My Mind Set On You." Another song on the album, "When We Was Fab," saw him looking back on his days as a member of the Fab Four.

Catching Up With Sean Lennon

It’s hard not to mention Sean Ono Lennon’s heritage when talking about him. If you even know a little bit about music, his famous parents are a touchstone for all things pop and avant garde. But that’s really as far as it needs to go. Beyond that, Lennon has carved out his own musical path and has never apologized for taking unexpected turns. His latest project, The Ghost of a Saber Tooth Tiger, is a collaboration between him and his longtime partner Charlotte Kemp Muhl that finds the two putting their own stamp on everything from folk to psychedelia.

A living record of Beatlemania

“I just knew that the story of the Beatles and of France, that particular year, was something I wanted to tell because I particularly loved the stories that I wrote about Paul McCartney,” Kaplan said. “I thought they were in such a wonderfully innocent voice of a young girl who doesn’t know anything about love or sex, at all, at that point, and is imagining it all. And in a difficult year, I was inventing this wonderful love that kept me going. And, of course, the man himself is so phenomenal … and I do feel there’s this man out there who I love deeply and have loved all my life.” Read More - The Chronicle Herald
