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

Johnny Depp Stars In Paul McCartney's New 'Early Days' Video

On Tuesday Johnny Depp Stars In Paul McCartney's New 'Early Days' Video was a top story. Here is the recap: (Radio.com) Paul McCartney took a left-field approach when casting the video for "Early Days," a remembrance song for John Lennon off his 2013 album New. Rather than find lookalikes for himself and Lennon, the former Beatle went with unknown actors playing aspiring musicians in 1950s South - and instead of putting Johnny Depp front and center, which could have overshadowed the video's heartfelt story, McCartney relegated the actor to a peripheral role as one of his bandmates.

Stop the presses: Ringo Starr makes comment on mystery 'Train Music' track

Starr's comments, the first from someone who might really know about the track, just added to the cloud surrounding it. Chris Carter of KLOS-FM's “Breakfast With the Beatles,” which first broadcast the unedited track, said he thought it was them when it first surfaced. “I think it's 'them' for the following reasons: It sounds like them. The tape box said 'The Beatles.' If it was another group, that other group would have claimed it was them sometime in the last 50 years! It was found along with other music not used in the film by George Martin.” Read More - National Beatles Examiner.com

Fifty Years Ago Today: The Beatles’ A Hard Day’s Night

Before anyone saw the movie, its title promised something different from the ruck of cheapo rock ‘n roll films: A Hard Day’s WHAT? As producer Walter Shenson told it, he and director Richard Lester were nearly finished shooting their little picture with the Beatles but had no name for it. Then John Lennon told Shenson that Ringo Starr occasionally mutilated the English language in droll ways. Example: to suggest his exhaustion after an evening’s concertizing and partying, Ringo would say, “It’s been a hard day’s night.” Shenson told Lennon that he and Paul McCartney should write a song with that title, pronto. The next morning they delivered a catchy 12-bar blues riff with a soaring bridge, about a working stiff whose girlfriend makes all his toil worthwhile. Plaaaang! Read More - TIME

50 Years Ago: The Beatles Recieve ‘Germ Bomb’ Death Threat

The show that night went off without a hitch, but the band did run into some more trouble the following day in Christchurch when a group of males unleashed a barrage of eggs against them at their hotel. For Ringo Starr, more than the bomb threat, the eggs gave him pause about ever making a return trip to New Zealand. “We certainly hope they get rid of egg-throwing if we do come back,” he said in an interview on their way back to Australia. “I think that was a disgusting display of bad manners.” George Harrison, however took a different stance. “I didn’t mind the eggs,” he said. “I thought it was quite funny.” Read More

Lennon tackles the subject on Midnight Sun, the second album by The Ghost Of A Saber Tooth Tiger, the neo-psych folk-rock duo he formed in 2009 with multi-instrumentalist and girlfriend Charlotte Kemp Muhl. The track Poor Paul Getty relives the tale of the titular American oil heir who in 1973 was kidnapped in Rome and subsequently had his ear cut off by his captors. “It was the bogey-man story,” says Lennon. “The song isn’t jokey at all.” Read More - MOJO
