ROCKOLLECTIONS: GEORGE AND JOHN ON THE BBC PT.2 END

Again I remind you this was originally broadcast in 2010, that's why the Math is off.

Moving on to John Lennon in our remembrance of the lives of two men who were a part of something that probably will never happen again, the phenomenon that was the Beatles.

Dec. 8th is the anniversary of John's death.

I'll cherry pick some more from those delightful 1963 BBC Sessions, highlighting John, from Pop Go The Beatles.

There is a real fun moment in here…

ROCKOLLECTIONS: GEORGE AND JOHN ON THE BBC PT.1

This was originally broadcast in 2010, that's why the Math is off.

I don't know why it took me so long to listen to the Beatles BBC Sessions.

Looking for a new approach for this remembrance of the deaths of George Harrison and John Lennon, I finally gave the BBC tapes a shot.

And these selections from 1963 are a JOY, a REVELATION!

Full of humor, they play so many both known and obscure old American Rock & Roll songs you can see how closely…

ROCKOLLECTIONS: SONGS THE BEATLES GAVE AWAY PT.2 END

It's another large portion of Songs The Beatles Gave Away.

Played in order of release, and this time from where we left off in 1964 thru 1969.

In those early days, this was done with the encouragement of the Beatles' manager Brian Epstein, as they supplied some of their songs to artists also managed by Epstein.

And usually they were friends with John Lennon and Paul McCartney.

Artists began clamoring to secure original Lennon–McCartney songs,…

ROCKOLLECTIONS: SONGS THE BEATLES GAVE AWAY PT.1

John Lennon and Paul McCartney started writing songs together in the late 1950s and by 1963 were prolific composers.

There were primarily three categories of Beatle Songs that were written but not released by the Beatles:

Recordings by the Beatles that the group tried but ultimately decided not to release.

Lennon–McCartney songs that the Beatles deemed unsuitable for the group at the outset and did not even attempt to record themselves.

Songs that…

Beatles Hallucinations!

Have you ever seen a photo or a sign and had that split second of thinking "Omg, is that The BeaTles logo?!"

For example every time I look at a photo of anyone online, I check if they're wearing a Beatles shirt or I might think "Let me look closer! Is that... a poster of Help! in the background?" Sometimes, it IS! Either on facebook or on social sites, my Beatles hallucinations are actually real because there are so many Beatles fans, hardcore or not that may…

A personal perspective on Sir Paul McCartney

When one looks back at the Life of Paul one sees more than likely the greatest composer to ever walk the Earth. Yes its a bold statement but, its also a proven fact. His strongest work comes from the 60's and 70's era when his music was mostly driven about the good and positive things in Life. His music helped mold many adolescent human minds into maybe seeing a more positive outlook on life, love, and compassion. So much unlike the caged animal sounds of Rapp songs or the current…

John Lennon, songwriting, and 72 thousand years later....

Anyone who truly knows John Lennon's entity of work knows that his music traverses all languages, religions and ethnicity. When i was a kid back n the mid 1970s  (many year ago I am 45 now) i used to

listen to the Red and Blue Greatest hits albums over and over ..... I have a nice memory of a spot on, " In my Life" where i would uncontrollably yawn (where the C major goes to the C minor). Its a vivid memory and i still do it at that particular spot. I know, that's weird!!! I cant…

Beatle Book!

Okay Ignore the Gay title for this I could not think of anything good. Okay so this is another one of those taking turn games where you make the next line game. Here is how you play The fist person will say a song title and then thee next person will say another and so on and so on, and the idea is to make a story out of it, and it has to make sense. You can add words, but make it limited! If this goest well we could try it using song lyrics! When you think the story is done put 'The End'…

Th day John Lennon passed and the 12 known music notes....

I was 13 yrs old and very much a Beatles fan.. Not totally obsessed with them because back in 1980 there was still a lot of great new fresh music on the airwaves.. Who would have known then that by 1988 all the great music was written and everything after that year was more sub-standard then what i was raised on. Dont get me wrong, good music been made since then, its just not as abundant as it was once. You can only rearrange 12 musical notes so many ways before all the best ways are used…
