4 Life Lessons from the Beatles

Pop legend Frank Ifield at Liverpool's Epstein
 - Monday, May 12, 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!)





Cilla Black, Friend of The Beatles and an Early Contemporary, to Receive Career Honor in London
- Tuesday, May 13, 2014

Cilla Black, who early in her career shared a manager with The Beatles and recorded songs written byJohn Lennon and Paul McCartney, is being honored for her outstanding contribution to entertainment by the British Academy of Film and Television Arts.

Black is scheduled to receive the BAFTA award during the Arqiva British Academy Television Awards, taking place May 18 in London. Black, like The Beatles, was part of the early 1960s music scene at the Cavern club in Liverpool, England.  After signing with the group’s manager, Brian Epstein, Black recorded a handful of Lennon-McCartney compositions, among them “Love of the Loved” and “It’s for You,” which became chart hits in the U.K. By the late 1960s, Black was a regular on British television, starting with her eponymous variety show for BBC TV, followed by long stints on the shows Surprise! Surprise! and Blind Date, plus appearances on other programs.

17 Shocking Facts About The Beatles

The Beatles were originally supposed to voice the vultures in The Jungle Book. 

The Beatles’ manager had worked out an agreement with Walt Disney for the group to perform in the film, but this dream was shot down when he approached the group with the idea. John Lennon reportedly shouted, “There’s no way the Beatles are going to sing for Mickey ****-ing Mouse!” Nevertheless, the four vultures are still modeled after the Fab Four, and the final product retains the Liverpool accent and mop-top haircuts as an homage to the group (the quiet vulture with the shaggy hair is a dead ringer for George!). 

Much as I would’ve liked to have seen the Beatles in a Disney movie, I think I prefer the barbershop music anyway:
