On Friday November 11th, BBC 4 will be showing an evening of Beatles programmes for lovers of all things Fab Four.
And in the 100th anniversary year of the Russian Revolution and the 50th of the release of Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band, a good place to start is the 2009 Storyville documentary How the Beatles Rocked the Kremlin.
Our friends at the ‘Daily Beatle’ are reporting that Two different Beatles releases (and a total of three physical new releases to purchase and one HD Digital audio release) will be made available on the same day, one is a LIMITED EDITION BOX SET. Official announcement expected soon…
John Lennon’s personal copy of a Beatles album with hand-drawn sketches dubbed the world’s rarest album is set to fetch more than $200,000 as it goes up for auction.
The rare pre-production Yesterday and Today album with the infamous butcher cover will go up for auction on November 11 in Dallas, Texas.
It was John Lennon’s personal copy and sports one of his illustrations on the back of a man with his shovel and a dog in front of a setting sun.
The Yesterday and Today prototype was pulled two days after its release because of the controversial cover artwork and all were destroyed apart from a few – including this one owned by Lennon himself – before a tamer version was hurriedly re-released.
Months before John Lennon told The Beatles he wanted out, he was so focused on Yoko Ono … he hand wrote a Christmas card to her ex-husband, which is now available for wealthy collectors.
Lennon penned the card to music producer Tony Cox in December 1968. Cox and Ono were married from 1962-69 … so they weren’t officially divorced yet when Lennon wrote to him.
The card ain’t exactly full of holiday cheer, instead it’s all about Yoko moving out — “We took most of the stuff I think – we’re gradually going through it.” For more see http://www.tmz.com/2017/10/30/john-lennon-yoko-ono-christmas-card-to-ex/
October 23rd 2010. Pics I took of Yoko Ono unveiling the English Heritage blue plaque to John Lennon, at their former apartment, 34 Montagu Square. The apartment was actually owned by Ringo, and he lived there for a time with wife Maureen and son Zak. He later let Paul McCartney use it as a recording studio, and after that, Jimi Hendrix lived there. It was then John and Yoko’s first place together.
October is Breast Cancer Awareness month, an annual global campaign to increase awareness of the disease. Paul McCartney’s ‘One On One’ world tour has taken him to Brazil this month and in support of the campaign Paul and his band have been wearing pink wristbands on stage at his sold-out stadium shows. By wearing pink wristbands Paul and his band are helping to convey an important public health message to his audiences. The mission of the campaign is to help all effected by breast cancer through education, early detection, treatment and support services.
