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!)





Bob Gruen’s Iconic Rock ‘n’ Roll Portraits of John Lennon, Ramones, and Tina Turner
- Tuesday, April 01, 2014

Even the most casual consumers of rock ‘n’ roll iconography have seen Bob Gruen’s iconic images. He’s shot album covers, photographs that ended up as posters and postcards, and portraits that come to be so associated with superstar musicians, they run in their obits. John Lennon’s New York City T-shirt. Led Zeppelin’s plane. That kind of thing.

New York’s Pop International Galleries will host 100 of Gruen’s photos in a show running April 4 through May 4, including many images that have influenced the way we perceive some of rock ‘n’ roll’s biggest stars, from Lennon and Zep to CBGB icons like Debbie Harry and The Ramones. Flavorwire presents ten photos from the show in this gallery, which includes the aforementioned icons as well as The Rolling Stones, Tina Turner, The Sex Pistols, Elton John, Joan Jett, New York Dolls, and Chuck Berry. Gruen began his career by shooting Bob Dylan’s infamous plugged-in performance at 1965′s Newport Folk Fest. “Photography has led me to some great experiences and enduring relationships,” he says. “Blurring the line between work and play, many of the people I met through my work have become friends; some are like family to me.”

John Lennon's UFO-inspired Art Fetches Big Bucks
- Monday, March 31, 2014

In 1967, when John Lennon wrote his classic Beatles hit, "Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds," everyone assumed the psychedelic song was about drugs. Few would have guessed that several years later, a sober Lennon would see something far different in the sky -- a UFO -- and it would have a profound influence on his life.

17 Shocking Facts About The Beatles

The Beatles had to dodge Jelly Babies thrown at them on stage because fans heard George Harrison liked them. 

Looks like Justin Bieber isn’t the first to have snackfood thrown at him on stage. During a Beatles performance it was George Harrison who was hit in the eye with a Jelly Baby. It seems the Beatles didn’t like having sweets thrown at them on stage, mostly due to how fans would bombard them with Jelly Babies after George said in an interview how he liked them. 

Fans throwing candy became such a problem that the Beatles had to actively dodge them during performances and George ultimately wrote a letter to a fan asking her to stop. In the letter, George Harrison said “We don’t like Jelly Babies, or Fruit Gums for that matter, so think how we feel standing on stage trying to dodge the stuff, before you throw some more at us. 

Couldn't you eat them yourself, besides it is dangerous. I was hit in the eye once with a boiled sweet, and it's not funny!' It seems like a lot of fuss for fans to so frequently buy candy only to throw it on stage, but apparently that’s just what Beatlemania did to people.

 The Beatles 50 Years Ago Today :

The Beatles 50 Years Ago Today : April 5, 1964 (Sunday)

Marylebone Station, Great Central St. London

Working, unusually, on a Sunday, the film crew cme to Marylebone Station this afternoon (and again the following Sunday) to shoot the first sequences for A Hard Day's Night. This usually busy central London terminus was closed to the public on Sundays, so filming could only be done then. By the conclusion of their two Sunday's work, the Beatles had been filmed running across Melcombe Place and into the station, using its public telephones and a photo booth, leaping over a hoarding. Paul sitting in disquise on a concourse bench with his "grandfather" Wilfrid Brambell, and the group running down the length of platform one and jumping onto an already-moving train. (From here, the film cut to the footage shot between March 2nd and 9th). All this time, the group were being cased by more than one hundred screaming fans.

While at Marylebone, John, George and Ringo were also filmed in the station's adjacent street, Boston Place, running towards the camera and being chased by the same frenzied fans. This sequence was used at the very beginning of the film, under the titles.
