‘I was so wiped out’: Micky Dolenz on how a Beatles song got into the final Monkees TV show
 - Tuesday, April 08, 2014

This book takes the reader through the sexual highlights (and lowlights) in the lives/careers of the Fab Four from adolescence to the present. It focuses mainly on the Quarry Men and Beatles years, but continues right through the solo era to 2013. Punctuated with illustrations featuring 'the luv bugs'. As humorous as it is salaciously informative, this account avoids opinionating and moralizing, and instead focuses on delivering the goodies ie. the juicy stuff. (Is sex a vital part of life? Was it especially so for the Beatles? Aren't you glad your parents had sex, at least once? Yeah, yeah, yeah!)





Chris Brady: Beatles re-releases - I just can't help myself
- Tuesday, April 08, 2014

In London, at the office of Apple Corps, a little man sits at his desk day and night, working out yet more ways to fleece money out of a totally suspecting but totally addicted group of sad, ageing people. These people have spent thousands of dollars (or pounds or euros or yen, or maybe even Bulgarian lev) on a band that hasn't existed for more than 40 years, and of whose original six members only three are still alive.

Ordinarily, such a band would be well and truly history, but of course the Beatles were anything but ordinary. We've just had the 50th anniversary of one of their greatest triumphs, for it was on April 4, 1964 that saw the band with the top five singles in the Billboard chart. The songs Can't Buy Me LoveTwist and ShoutShe Loves YouI Want to Hold Your Hand and Please Please Me created a record that has never been equalled or seriously threatened. For many older folk (and for many of their children, especially mine) these songs are known off by heart, back to front and upside-down.

‘He is definitely alive’: Yoko Ono denies long-held rumor about death of Beatles’ Paul McCartney
- Monday, April 07, 2014

Each week, Yoko Ono opens the floor for fan questions of any stripe, from her philosophy on art and outlook on life, to her music career and that of her husband John Lennon — both solo and with the Beatles. This week, she confirmed something that’s long been perculating among conspiracy theorists who think Lennon’s former bandmate Paul McCartney was killed at the height of their fame.

Paul McCartney and wife Nancy Shevell engage in some PDA for the kiss cam during LA Lakers game 
 - Monday, April 07, 2014

When it comes to Sir Paul McCartney showing his affection for his wife, he certainly isn't shy about it. Paul took the opportunity to plant a kiss on his wife, Nancy Shevell, for the Kiss Cam at the Staples Center during an NBA basketball game between the Los Angeles Clippers and the Lakers on Sunday in Los Angeles. The 71-year-old singer lovingly pulled 53-year-old Nancy's face close to him and gave her a sweet kiss.

17 Shocking Facts About The Beatles

The Beatles' "Here Comes the Sun" was almost put on the Voyager Golden Records and sent out to space, but EMI refused to release the rights 

The Voyager Golden Records were phonograph records which were placed in the Voyager spacecrafts launched in 1977. The purpose of the records was to portray the diversity of life and culture on Earth, designated for any intelligent life in the universe who might find them. 

The Voyager spacecrafts are still out there today, both with a long journey ahead of them. Given the time it will take for them to be near other stars (about 40,000 years for one of them), some have even suggested that before then we’ll have developed space travel superior in speed to the spacecrafts and that they’ll be obsolete long before reaching anyone. 

Carl Sagan was an astronomer working on the project back in the 70’s. He had wanted “Here Comes the Sun” included on the records, and The Beatles favored the idea. Unfortunately, EMI refused to release the rights (probably because of the copyright infringing habits of aliens) and so it was not included.

 The Beatles 50 Years Ago Today :

The Beatles 50 Years Ago Today : April 13, 1964 (Monday)

Twickenham Film Studios, St. Margaret.s, Twickenham

Shooting in the morning of George's solo sequence in the film, in which he is taken to the marketing boss of a clothing company and mistaken for the model of their new range of what George describes as "grotty" shirts.

George also featured in the the afternoon "bathroom" filming, in which he shaved in front of a mirror while John played submarines in the bath, sang "Rule Britannia" and apparently disappeared down the plug-hole. Paul and Ringo did not attend filming this day - had they done so they would have re-met Roy Orbison, visiting Britain and keen to catch up with the group which had, theoretically, been a support act on his previous British concert tour.
