Ten Things You May Not Know About the Gretsch Guitar
 - Monday, April 14, 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!)

Paul McCartney Asking Fans to Submit Photos for Use in "Save Us" Video
- Tuesday, April 15, 2014

How would you like to appear in Paul McCartney‘s next video?  The ex-Beatles legend is putting together a new promotional clip for “Save Us,” a song from his latest album, NEW, and he’s asking fans to submit photos of themselves that also include one line of lyrics from the tune.

A message on McCartney’s official website explains, “You could write the words on a piece of paper; make something with the words on; do something on your computer — remember, the more creative your photo, the more chance you have of being included!”  Fans also can include the phrases “Guitar Riff,” “Instrumental” and “End” in their pics for use in the portions of the clip that don’t feature lyrics.  Sir Paul and his collaborators then will choose their favorite photos for inclusion in the video. You can post your photos on either Instagram or Twitter using the hashtag #whatsnewPaul.  Pics must be submitted by 7 a.m. ET on April 22.  Incidentally, a similar clip utilizing fan-submitted images to create a video for NEW‘s title track debuted on McCartney’s YouTube channel this past December.

Paul McCartney concert: Let it be at new stadium, 49ers say
- Tuesday, April 15, 2014

The 49ers are in talks with Paul McCartney to perform the opening concert at their new Levi's Stadium in Santa Clara - a move that would effectively yank the rug out from under San Francisco's plans for the music legend to headline a final send-off concert at Candlestick Park.

Photos featuring The Beatles in Dallas are about to hit the auction block
- Tuesday, April 15, 2014

Photojournalist John Mazziotta wouldn’t take his daughter along to the 1964 Beatles concert in Dallas, so he did the next best thing: He gave her his pictures and negatives. Jan Howes, who was 10 at the time but already deeply in love with The Beatles, did not see the band when it played Dallas on Sept. 18, 1964, but her father did.

17 Shocking Facts About The Beatles

The Beatles once bought a private island with plans to all live together in peace away from screaming fans, but later sold it as they were breaking up. 

In 1964, The Beatles tried to buy the 14-acre Trinity Island off the coast of the Greek island of Euboea, which, incidentally, is in the shape of a guitar. This failed, because the owners were not interested in a sale.

Lennon was still interested in buying or leasing an island to live on together, and discussed it with the other Beatles in 1967. Their friend Mardas' father was a major in the Greek secret police, and Mardas explained that through him, The Beatles would have access to Greek government connections, which would speed the acquisition of an island.

On July 22, 1967, Harrison, his wife, and Ringo Starr flew to Athens, and stayed in Mardas' parents' house overnight until Lennon, McCartney, and their family could arrive. McCartney later said that while sailing around Greek islands, everybody just sat around and took LSD. 

They eventually found the 80-acre island of Leslo, which had a small fishing village, four beaches and a large olive grove. Four small neighboring islands surrounded it, which would be for each Beatle. So, the island was bought for £95,000, but was sold for a modest profit a few months later after all four Beatles lost interest in the idea.

 The Beatles 50 Years Ago Today :

The Beatles 50 Years Ago Today: April 20, 1964 (Monday)

The Jack Billings TV School of Dancing, Goldhawk Rd. London

The only one of the Beatles not, so far, to have been involved in a solo scene for A Hard Day's Night was Paul, and this and the next day balanced that situation with the rehearsing and shooting of a long sequence. Out looking for the missing Ringo, Paul comes across a rehearsal room (actually a west London dance studio), enters and has a long conversation with an actress (Isla Blair) who has been rehearsing lines presuming that she was alone.

Despite the two-day shoot, and some re-writing by Paul and also by Richard Lester of Alun Owen's original script, the sequence was cut from the finished film, so Paul never did appear in a solo sequence.

Meanwhile, back at Abbey Road, 2:00-3:15 pm, George Martin was at work producing mono and stereo mixes of "A Hard Day's Night", the tapes taken away by United Artists.
