Title: anything about the Beatles ...
Post by: slowhandpal on March 13, 2009, 08:47:09 PM
to all Beatles fanatics out there. this is our thread. anything about them, lets share it to everyone.

let me start..

pansin ko lang lalo na sa Back in the U.S Tour ni Paul may tribute sya kay John, medley pa ata, at kumanta din sya something ni George. parang ang mga kantang yon ay di rin bagay sa kanya, kahit na ba maganda talaga ang boses ni Paul.

What I mean is no one else can sing better than they themselves. si John kinanta nya din Honey don't pero mas bagay pa rin kay Ringo... lalo si George kinanta nya in my life at get back (di talaga ok)

okay kayo naman :-)

kahit ano mga kaibigan, news, trivia, infos basta tungkol sa kanila .. isali na din nati mga anak nila. Julian, Sean, Dhani et al...

rare appearances of the Beatles

1. George Harrison
    * with Deep Purple - lead guitar on Lucille, Blackmore obliged George to play the first ad lib & riffs
    * with Albert Lee- George played slide for the song Bluest Blues, grabe ang ganda ng slide work

2. Paul mc Cartney- played with U2 for the song Sgt.Peppers

3. Ringo Starr- appeared in the film the WHO rock concert, playing along side Keith Moon, The Band Last waltz too

4. John Lennon- played with Cheap Trick for the song I'm losing you

Did you know that Keith Moon's favorite drummer is Ringo. Ringo was so pleased with compliment so with the audience during the interview

there are a lot more in youtube :-)

In the early days, Lennon had the worst GAS of the Beatles, blowing off his money (or even if he did not have money--credit) on guitars and all sorts of things, including clothes. Paul was more modest in his gear acquisition, as evidenced by his choices such as his (initially) cheap Hofner bass and the Epiphone Casino. George seems to figure somewhere in between these two extremes, though his Gretsch choices were good. :-)

slamat po..

4 albums are the favourite reference on this theory at least. Abbey road, the white album, magical Mystery tour & sgt. peppers.

Abbey road- paul was walking on barefoot & his step is not the same with the others. the plate number of the Volkswagen got the letters IF with numbers. when this album was released yong number sa plate number yon na sana ang age ni Paul had he survived the car crash.

Sgt. Peppers-sa likod ng LP meron nakalagay OPD- ang ibig daw sabihin Officially Pronounced Dead

White album- sa Glass Onion na kanta, sinabi kasi ni John na The Walrus was Paul which is in Greek Myth, walrus symblolizes Corpse at sa Revolution 9 when played backwards sinasabi daw ni lennon turn me on dead man

Magical Mystery Tour- si Paul nagsabit ng black rose habang ang tatlo ay red roses

Funny but on the latest album released " The Love " album, isa sa MTV don, ang ulo ni Paul sinasagasaan ng kotse(super liit) sa background.. but if you review it well sila lahat ay nasagasaan ng kotse na yon..

May napanood akong interview ni George Harrison sa Youtube. Sabi nung nagi-interview magko-cover daw ata si Paul ng mga songs ni John sa concert, tpos sabi ni George, really? he ran out of good ones? basta di ko matandaan uyng words basta nagtawanan sila after sabihin yun ni George. Pki-check tong video kung ito wala kasing soundard dito sa office. PAg hindi to, edit ko na lang pag nahanap ko yung tamang video. Pero feeling ko ito eh:

yes this is the video.George said "Paul? Oh because he ran out of good ones.." then the audience began laughing & George confirmed " yes it's true"

Actually, for me ang matindi namang bangayan ay hindi between & John but Paul & George..

I just bought a book called "Lennon In America: 1971-1980, Based In Part On The Lost Lennon Diaries" by Geoffrey Giuliano.
P499 lang sa Fully Booked!

Grabe ang mga expose!!!  :evil:

Here's an excerpt:

"Drunk and disconsolate, they (John & Stu) returned to their dank one-room hole. Stu was sitting on the top bunk, while John rolled into the bottom. After a few minutes Lennon wordlessly climbed up to join Sutcliffe. What began as mutual consolation turned quietly sexual when Stu went down on him. Lennon disclosed the episode to (Derek) Taylor during an acid trip at his home in suburban London."

Wow. :-o

Stu Sutcliff for those who may not know him is the Bass player of the group, pre Beatles era together with the original drummer Pete Best.

Shocking story bro.. :-) How about the gossip about John & Linda..

trivia

Paul played bass for James Taylor in Carolina in my mind

George played lead guitar in Bad Finger's hit Day after Day

George played slide in Electric Light Orchestra's hit Moment in Paradise (Zoom Album) , he also played Classical guitar in one Crusader's hit song

"Once, Lennon had forgotten the appointed time of a session, and stopped by Paul's to confirm the studio schedule. Upon his arrival he discovered that Paul had already left for the studio. Linda was home alone, nursing a headache in the aftermath of a heated argument with Paul. Grateful for the company, she invited John in. After sharing a bottle of wine, a large joint, and some conversation with the bespectacled  Beatle, she excused herself and returned to the bedroom, where she had been making the bed prior to John's unexpected visit. Lennon promptly offered her a hand. In the course of spreading the sheets, their hands touched briefly. Linda paid the contact no mind, but as she reached over to tuck in the top sheet, Lennon caught her arm and kissed her. A gentle, awkward embrace evolved into caresses and a quick interlude of sexual intimacy. According to John's account, Linda deeply regretted the indiscretion and never told a soul. He, on the oher hand, found it amusing."

Tungkol naman kay John at Brian Epstein. Di ko masyado matandaan yung kwento eh, itama nyo na lang Sir Dyugs and Sir Slowhandpal kung alam nyo yung tamang kwento. Anyway, bago ata or nung naging manager na ng Beatles si Brian, nagpunta ata sila sa Paris (not sure if this is the right location) ni John kasi type talaga ni Brian si John. Tapos tinatanong yung ibang Beatles kung may nangyari sa dalawa, ang sagot ng ibang Beatles, knowing John daw, pwedeng may nangyari ngang milagro between him and Brian.

Gulo ko magkwento, haha.

"Released on Friday, June 1, 1967, Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band sold 250,000 copies in its first week and was certified Gold within a month. By the end of August, more than two and a half million copies of the record had sold in the states alone, where the album was number One on the charts for 19 weeks.

For McCartney, the greatest recognition came on June 3, when, two days after Sgt. Pepper's' release, he witnessed the Jimi Hendrix Experience open their show at London's Saville Theatre by performing "Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band."

"That was the single biggest tribute for me," says McCartney. "I was a big fan of Jimi's."

For the Beatles as a group, gt. Pepper's was ultimately something of a vindication against critics who regularly claimed the group's creativity and influence wouldn't last. During the long months of making Sgt. Pepper's, the press frequently speculated on the long delay in releasing the new album.

"The music papers had been saying, 'What are the Beatles up to? Drying up, I suppose,' " McCartney recalls. "So it was nice, making an album like Pepper and thinking, Yeah, drying up, I suppose. That's right. It was lovely to have them on that when it came out. I loved it."  :evil:

I grew up listening to the Beatles and from the time na matuto ako magguitar (that was 9 years old kasi grade 3 ako nun) gang ngayon eh binabalik balikan ko pa din sila :)  I have their mga naunang albums, tape pa sila kasi hiningi ko lang sa Tito ko, gang nagka meron ng CD and MP3.  Ang tangi kong ka-share sa mga ka-Beatle-ang usapan ay ang drummer naming si Mayk at ewan pero pareho kaming hindi aware about the mystery of Paul.  Kinwento lang ni Sir Nogi sa amin yun nga, na hindi daw talaga yung original na Paul si Paul kasi ung original Paul eh namatay na and they had to make audition, ala Paul-look-alike contest.  Tas nag cite siya nga about the Abbey Road album cover, song lyrics, "Paul is dead", etc. Waah dami dapat ata malaman! :-o

Nag 3-day sale sa SM Clark last week lang, I got a Lennon-faced shirt from Artwork tas nung Tuesday nakabili din ako The Beatles na panyo sa Artwork (SM Pampanga naman) hehe. Tas ngayon nakita ko thread na to haha... wala lang masaya!  :-D

 For those who do not know yet..

 1. Let it be - was written by Paul about his biological Mother who passed away when he was younger. His mothers name is Mary whom he missed terribly in his times of trouble

2. Julia- was written by John for his mom Julia who let her auntie mimi raised him

3. Here comes the sun-was written by George in Eric Clapton's garden.

4. Octupos garden- written by Ringo in the key of C ( the chord that he is always comfortable), George helped him improve the progressions in the key of E, but they lowered it to B when they recorded. :-)

songs they gave away to other artists

1. World without love
2. Come & get it- Bad finger
3. From a window
4. Hello little girl
5. Love of the love
6. I'm in love
 7. Bad to me
8. One & one is two
9. Nobody I know
10. Like dreamers do

most of it where given to Peter & Gordon.. who is a brother of Paul's girl friend then Jane Asher  :-)

Ringo was the first who left the Beatles during the making of the White Album because he felt Paul feels he's no longer playing the drums right.. he went to Bahamas for a short and unplanned vacation & was inspired to write Octupos Garden (because octupos's are eaten in the place, hehe here too).

John placed roses on the doorstep of Ringo's house with big note that for him He is the best drummer in the world he ever known. Ringo was touched with John,s friendly gesture so he made himself available again in the following recording sessions. :-)

Tapos one night, hinamon ni George si Clapton ng duwelo. Not the bloody type... isang GUITAR DUEL! WTF. Ano 'yun, pabagsikan ng lead guitars? Parang tagilid si George. :lol:

Ewan ko lang din kung totoo ito.  :-D

There may not even be a love triangle because love was no longer there when clapton confided to george that he love his wife. Patty really wanted George to get jealous but the friendship of george & clapton reigned over. I have it in my book entitled George Harrison which I personally bought in Toronto years ago.

About the guitar duel I have no idea at all but I can pressume there's no truth in it. When George brought Clapton in to play While my guitar gently weeps, Eric was so hesitant for he is not a Beatle, but george said don't worry this is my song.

During the press con of Concert for Bang la Desh, You'll see how Eric Clapton respected George as a song write & guitar player. He even mentioned that he insisted in joining the concert (he was already inactive for two years in the music scene) depite being informed that the line up is already filled with guitarists in the likes of Jess Ed Davis, Pete Ham et al.

Tagilid?, I don't think so.. It is not about speed nor number of notes you play but the melody that goes through the heart said Chet Atkins which I truly believe. Try removing the very simple guitar intro of And I love her & In My life ..wala na.

My relative was one of the many lucky persons to have watched George Live in Japan, they have a guitar duel in While my guitar gently weeps & Something.. when they went home what remains in their hearts & minds are the simple riffs of george. On their way home they were humming the melody..After all they're guitar players in their own right.

Tapos one night, hinamon ni George si Clapton ng duwelo. Not the bloody type... isang GUITAR DUEL! WTF. Ano 'yun, pabagsikan ng lead guitars? Parang tagilid si George. :lol:

Dirty Mac yung name ng group na to na tumugtog ng Yer Blues.

Trivia: Si George at Maureen (Ringo's wife) had an affair din, kaya nag hiwalay si Ringo at Maureen.

Yung anak ni George, si Dhani Harrison, ok din yung band nya "The new number 2" ang name. napanood ko sa youtube mga songs, galing din ng mga licks nya at boses, manang-mana kay George.

^I don't remember any particular moment  na nagkasama ulit silang apat after the break-up but 1974 onwards they were already "buddies" again. John and Paul had their "A Toot and a Snore" sessions, George played on John's album numerous times, Paul collaborated with Ringo on Ringo's album, and etc,  but the four of them at the same time? It never happened. I think the closest would be their business meetings in New York. I read that there was a time when Paul, George and Ringo were at a restaurant to close a business deal or something and they were waiting for John to sign some papers but he never came. John was at his Dakota apartment at that time.

question lang, nagkaroon ba ng chance na magmeet ba ulit yung apat na magkakakasama after nila mag disband?

From Rutlemania.org:

On April 24, 1976, Lorne Michaels, producer of NBC's Saturday Night, made an on-air offer of $3000 to The Beatles if they would re-unite and perform on the show. The offer was a hilarious spoof on the absurdly high reunion offers that were regularly making the news at the time, in which The Beatles were offered as much as one hundred million dollars for a single concert.

Needless to say, The Beatles didn't take Michaels up on his offer, but it turned out to be precisely the entrée that was needed to get The Rutles onto American television. Lorne Michaels tells the story, in his introduction to the "I Must Be In Love" film.

Interestingly, the Rutles clip made its world premiere on NBC's Saturday Night, since the Rutland Weekend Television programme from which it was taken wouldn't air in the U.K. for six more weeks.

And Your Bird Can Sing

"Bird" is British slang for "Girl." One theory is that this song is a scolding by John Lennon of his buddy Mick Jagger of the Rolling Stones, who loved to brag about his bird - Marianne Faithfull - who was great, green (jealous/young) and could sing. John made it clear that Mick and the Stones wear great but could never ever match up to John and the other Beatles. (Thanks, raoul - Amsterdam)

The signature dual-harmony electric lead guitar parts were played live (without overdubbing) by Harrison and McCartney. Lennon played the rhythm in the "D major" position with the capo on the 2nd fret (to account for the song being in the key of E). John used the 2nd fret capo several times ("Nowhere Man," "Julia," "Norwegian Wood (This Bird Has Flown)" to name a few). (Thanks, Barry Kesten - Bellmore, United States)

I've stumble upon this interesting Christian-phase in Lennon's life.

Over the following months he baffled those close to him by constantly praising “the Lord,” writing Christian songs with titles like “Talking with Jesus” and “Amen” (the Lord’s Prayer set to music), and trying to convert nonbelievers. He also called the prayer line of The 700 Club, Pat Robertson’s program.

Apparently, Yoko Ono "saved" John from Christianity (as the song You Saved My Soul says).

Pero ang gusto ko lang naman ay MP3 ng Christian songs ni Lennon (Talking With Jesus and Amen). Meron ba tayo diyan?  :-D

He changed his name which i unfornately forgot to memorize, 9 din ang letter ''o" believing he'll get more good fortune and total expression of his love to yoko Ono

Something about The Beatles & Led Zeppelin

They didn't comment on each other that much really. Plant, Bonham and Jones were a part of Paul McCartney's supergroup 'Rockestra' and performed in one of the world's first charity rock concerts with The Concert for Kampuchea in 1979.

John Paul Jones was a part of Paul McCartneys fictional band in the 80's film 'Give My Regards To Broadstreet' (included the McCartney hit 'No More Lonely Nights').

Zep members and Beatles were friends through mutual acquaintances, and would appear at each others' weddings and birthday parties, but they weren't exactly close friends. The respect was evident, but there's not too many actual quotes where they comment on each other in public.

George Harrison was more noted for hanging out with Zep than any other Beatle, that's for certain.  At John Bonham's 25th birthday party, it was Harrison who started the debauchery all because he knew the nature of the beast he was about to enter.. so instead of bowing his head and succumbing to what he knew was to come (this WAS John Bonhams party after all...enough said) George decided to take the bull by the horns and get things going.  When a photo op. presented itself, Harrison grabbed the top tier of Bonham's birthday cake and heaved it at the guest of honor.  Pandemonium ensued with Bonham throwing anyone he could find into the swimming pool, Harrison included.  Jimmy Page, who could not swim and was dressed in a truly expensive lavender suit.. gave up and simply walked slowly and gallantly into the pool, fully dressed.  It was hilarious.

On another note, it was also George Harrison who is given credit for The Rain Song.  He commented to Jimmy that the trouble with Zep is that there's not enough ballads.  Jimmy wrote The Rain Song, and some say purposefully added the first 2 chords of Harrison's "Something" as the intro to "The Rain Song".  Upon initial listening, one cannot argue with that logic.  No doubt it is true.

   No offense meant sa mga Stones fans. Paborito ko din sila.

2. Beatles ang nagrekomenda sa Decca ng Rolling Stones.

3. Special guest si John Lennon (and Yoko Ono) sa Rolling Stones' Circus 1968. "Yer Blues" ang tinugtog ni John kasama si Clapton, Richards at Mitchell ng Jimi Hendrix Experience.

4. Guest din ang Rolling Stones sa music video ng Beatles' "All You Need Is Love."

5. "Their Satanic Majesties Request" ang sagot ng RStones sa "Sgt. Pepper's." Note: McCartney and Lennon provided backing vocals on "Sing This All Together.

6. Parehong nasa RStone Top 10 Singles of all time ang kanta nila: "Satisfaction (No. 2)" at "Hey Jude (No. 8)."

7. Pareho silang may albums sa  Top 10 ng RStone Top 500 albums of all tiime:
Beatles- Sgt. Pepper's #1,  Revolver #3, Rubber Soul #5 at White Album #10; Rolling Stones- Exile On Main St. #7.

At ang Pilipinas merun din contribution sa evolution ng rock: ang Manila incident 1966. Pagtapus nun nag decide ang Beatles na tumigil na sa pag tour. Pati kinita nila kinuha kasi. Simula yun ng pagbabad nila sa studio.Kung hindi nangyari yun e baka na delay ang paggawa nila ng "Revolver" at "Sgt. Pepper's"... :-)  at malamang "Pet Sounds" ang number 1 album of all time sa Rolling Stone Top 500 albums...  :-)

i read from the book of jeff godwin about john. share ko sa lahat.

johns favorite number is 9 (from tarot cards). that's why we have the songs, one after 909, revolution 9, number 9th dream. when he married yoko he requested to the officiating priest to begin the ceremony at exactly 9 o clock. lo and behold when he was shot dec 10 in new york, it was still dec 9 then in his birth place liverpool.

He changed his name which i unfornately forgot to memorize, 9 din ang letter ''o" believing he'll get more good fortune and total expression of his love to yoko Ono

baka may nakaka alam sa pangalan ni john na may 9 letter o jan  :wink:, clue! john winston ono lennon(dinagdagan nya pa ito) :-)
[/b]

Now I rememer well, John added winston ono, on his name para pag pinag sama ang pangalan nina yoko ono, meron syam(9) na letter o

Beatle drummers..

Peter Best.. original drummer

Richard Starkey.. aka Ringo Starr from Rory & the Hurricanes replaced Peter Best

Andy White.. the one chosen by George Martin since he is an experienced session drummer and more technical than Ringo. He was there when love me do was recorded, Ringo was allowed by George Martin to play the tamborine the whole day  but John didn't like the idea, he demanded to George to let Ringo play.

Jimmy Nichols .. he replaced Ringo who had his tonsils operated during their Australian Tour for few dates.. Ringo followed very soon

One of George's closest friends is Bob Dylan. Reportedly because Dylan cannot make it with Clapton, Macca, Ringo, Jeff Lynne et al..in the George Harrison tribute concert, he sang "something " ahead on Nov. 13 since the concert date for the tribute is Nov. 29

A reporter asked once in an interview with The Beatles if Ringo was the best drummer in the world, John and Paul were quick to answer...

"...He's not even the best drummer in The Beatles"

Of course, they cannot doubt that Richard Starkey is IT!

Ringo was always overshadowed by his stellar bandmates, but the bloke from Dingle town, Liverpool, has his own moments of glory, the one John Lennon referred to as a true "Working Class Hero" who rose from the slums of Liverpool to lavish with fame and fortune, napakaswerte talaga  :-D

To many people Ringo was the vital cog in The Beatles, take for example, one of the many concerts thay've had, their first in the US, at the Washington Coliseum in '65, one can't hear over 30,000+ screaming fans, and the three can't hear each other from their Vox amps and at a time where PAs doesn't exist, the one who kept them in tune, was Ringo. He gave The Beatles the BEAT!

He also brought innovations for the next generation of drummers, he was the first to hold the drumsticks in a straight manner (ba ang tawag dun?) unlike the traditional way like Charlie Watts does it. He also was the first to use the Drum Riser, as he was quoted as saying that he wanted to be visible as well  :-D

quotes about Ringo:

"Drummers will see him and think, Hey, he's part of it too" - Alex Van Halen

"The drumfills in A Day in The Life is very complex. Ask a drummer today and say you want it like that, they wouldn't know what to do" - Phil Collins

With much respect to Pete Best, Ringo is the shiz!

no doubt. I even believe truly that if not for him, the Beatles may not be as famous as they are.

One famous drummer even commented, it was first of a kind, he wonders where Ringo got those idea.

Speaking of the Shea Stadium, kakatapos lang ni Macca tumugtog ulit doon last July 17-18. Actually, hindi na Shea Stadium ang pangalan. Citi Field na, homecourt na yata 'to ng isang baseball team. Historical din kasi last year, guest si Macca sa last gig sa Shea with Billy Joel. Parang curtain call na rin para sa Shea. At ngayon opening ng Citi Field, si Macca naman ang binyagan.

So what's special about Shea? Ito ang quintessential American Beatlemania gig.

Remastered CD of the Beatles' albums will be out by Sept. 9, 2009 (09.09.09)
Sabi ng iba (mostly audiophiles), ang "Love" album daw ang pinakadisenteng recording ng Beatles. With respect to cd, these audiophiles might have a point. With the lp/s, no problem. Beatles' sound was raw and very natural. This was probably the reason why the Mobile Fidelity re-issued all the Beatles albums in lp format. Of course, the primary reason being all these Beatles albums are classic.

If you listen to the Anthology albums in CD format, they sound like of the 90s already. This can be attributed to the technology of remastering. While it may be true that there is a great debate as to the sound quality of the original/ re-issue albums as to their re-mastered counterparts, the Beatles sound only proves that they can go with the times.

for those who were not able to listen to all of their officially released albums yet you admire them & love Ringo's drumming, actually there are three (3) songs in which Ringo played drum solo.

1. The end- Abbey Road album
2. Birth day- The white album
3. What you're doing- The Beatles for sale

of course The end is the most popular and was played by many great drummers like Phil Collins, Mike Portnoy et al.. but I'm glad Ringo still sound different. :wink:

nice find bro! very informative.. how about the singles bro?

As requested (or asked), hereunder is the list of Beatles' songs (with their corresponding rankings) in RStone (RS) 500 Greatest Songs of all time:

8. Hey Jude
13. Yesterday
16. I Want to Hold Your Hand
20. Let It Be
23. In My Life
26. A Day in the Life
29. Help!
64. She Loves You
76. Strawberry Fields Forever
83. Norwegian Wood (This Bird Has Flown)
135. While My Guitar Gently Weeps
139. I Saw Her Standing There
153. A Hard Day's Night
184. Please Please Me
202. Come Together
273. Something
289. Can't Buy Me Love
304. With a Little Help From My Friends
362. All You Need Is Love
384. Ticket to Ride
449. Penny Lane
463. Rain

Out of 500 greatest songs by the RS Mag, 22 (tama ba?) of them are by the Beatles. 10 of which also landed in the top 100 list. If I am not mistaken, they (the Beatles) may have the most number of songs in the said list. Bob Dylan or the Rolling Stones may have come next. I am not so sure.

In case one wonders what songs topped the RS list, the Top 3 are: 1.) LIKE A ROLLING STONE- Bob Dylan; 2.) SATISFACTION- Rolling Stones; 3.) IMAGINE- John Lennon  :-)

you have a cassete tape player/ recorder or phono, then use a headphone  & listen to I will song(from the album love songs or white album).

you will notice the Beatles (probably Paul) didn't use a bass guitar but vocals to mimic the bass lines. probably one of their experimentations o katuwaan lang. na recall ko lang kasi nong high school at uso pa ang walkman.. :wink:

1. Impossible as it may sound there are still Beatles songs unreleased - the most notable ones being Carnival of Light (an experimental piece recorded on 5 January 1967 for The Million Volt Light and Sound Rave) and a 27-minute jam of Helter Skelter. A John Lennon composition the three surviving Beatles worked on in the early '90s prior to the Anthology release called Grow Old with Me also remains unreleased.

2. The Beatles (or at least half of it) sang for the Rolling Stones: Lennon and Paul McCartney provided backing vocals to the 1967 single We Love You.

3. Besides writing hundreds of songs for the Beatles, Lennon and McCartney also wrote dozens of songs for other artistes such as From A Window (Billy J. Kramer with The Dakotas), One and One Is Two (The Strangers with Mike Shannon), Step Inside Love and It's For You (Cilla Black), Come and Get It (Badfinger) and Woman (Peter and Gordon).

4. The Beatles’ third studio album A Hard Day’s Night is the only one to exclusively contain Lennon-McCartney compositions.

5. Paul is not McCartney's first name, James is. Lennon changed his middle name from Winston to Ono after marrying Yoko Ono in 1969.

6. At the end of Strawberry Fields Forever, Lennon is heard mumbling what sounds like "I buried Paul", which helped fuel the 'Paul is Dead' rumours. He's actually saying "cranberry sauce".

7. The only Beatles single to ever feature another musician on the credit is Get Back/Don't Let Me Down (credited to The Beatles with Billy Preston). Preston, recruited by George Harrison to ease the growing tensions in the band, played the Hammond organ on both songs.

8. Two days after Sgt Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band released, Jimi Hendrix opened his set at London's Saville Theatre with the title track, something McCartney considers his "single biggest tribute".

9. The final version of Strawberry Fields Forever was created combining two takes of the song in two different keys and speeds - a remarkable achievement considering the equipment and technology of the time - but still failed to fully satisfy Lennon. (meron ako mp3 neto! ung parang di siya natutuwa sa kanta puro first stanza lang muna)

10. The only Beatles track to be credited to Lennon and Harrison is an early instrumental called Cry for a Shadow recorded in 1961 when the band was backing Tony Sheridan. Flying and Dig It are the only two tracks to be credited to all four Beatles.

11. The BBC banned several Beatles songs - I Am the Walrus (for the use of the word 'knickers') and Fixing a Hole, Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds and A Day in the Life (all for alleged drug reference).

12. The working title for the film Help! was Eight Arms to Hold You.

13. For the Sgt Pepper album cover, cutouts of Adolf Hitler, Mahatma Gandhi, and Jesus Christ were requested by Lennon, but ultimately they were left out, though a cutout of Hitler was made for use.

14. Ringo Starr was the first to actually leave the group, walking out in 1968 during the acrimonious White Album sessions. As a result, the remaining Beatles all took turns on the drums for some of the tracks. When Starr finally returned he found his drum kit covered in flowers.

15. The closest the Beatles came to reuniting was at Eric Clapton's wedding to Patti Boyd in 1979, where McCartney, Harrison and Starr played. Lennon did not attend.

16. The last time Lennon and McCartney played together was at the Los Angeles Hit Factory studio in 1974. The abysmal (and possibly drug-fuelled) session, which also featured Stevie Wonder and Harry Nilsson, was of such bad quality that the bootleg recording was released as A Toot And A Snore In 74.

17. Lennon and McCartney each recorded demos called India which remain unreleased. Each of them also recorded a version of Fats Domino's Ain't That a Shame for their rock and roll albums (called Rock 'n' Roll and Снова в СССР respectively).

18. The first song ever written by Lennon was called Hello Little Girl. McCartney's first was I Lost My Little Girl.

19. Lennon was charged with plagiarism by Chuck Berry's publisher over Come Together which resembled Berry's 1956 song You Can't Catch Me. The case was settled out of court. George Harrison faced and lost a similar lawsuit over his solo hit My Sweet Lord which resembled the Chiffons' He's So Fine. (interesting... )

20. Lennon's number 9 connection: Lennon was born on 9 October 1940, his son Sean was also born 9 October, 1975. He wrote the songs #9 Dream (part of Lennon's ninth solo album Walls and Bridges which was released in the ninth month of 1974 and peaked at number 9 in the US charts) and with the Beatles - One After 909 and Revolution 9. He lived in apartment number 72 on 72nd Street in New York and was killed in the evening of December 8 when it was already early morning of December 9 in his birthplace of Liverpool.

^^I bought the White album first just to test the waters and man..I'm loving every nanosecond of it haha!  8-)

Everything is SPARKLING, crisp, and crystal clear. John's vox, Paul's bass on "Yer Blues," backing vox on "Happiness Is A Warm Gun," etc. Kung minsan naririnig ko pang yung squeak ng bass pedal ni Ringo, some studio chatter that I've never heard before, Ringo puffing a smoke before singing "Good Night," etc. Ang galing!

Soooo, I went back to the store and also bought "Abbey Road" and "Beatles for Sale." They both sound GLORIOUS. Especially "Abbey Road." It's like being a fly on the wall. I can hear the air from Ringo's bass drum on "The End" haha!  :lol:

^^I bought the White album first just to test the waters and man..I'm loving every nanosecond of it haha!  8-)

Everything is SPARKLING, crisp, and crystal clear. John's vox, Paul's bass on "Yer Blues," backing vox on "Happiness Is A Warm Gun," etc. Kung minsan naririnig ko pang yung squeak ng bass pedal ni Ringo, some studio chatter that I've never heard before, Ringo puffing a smoke before singing "Good Night," etc. Ang galing!

Soooo, I went back to the store and also bought "Abbey Road" and "Beatles for Sale." They both sound GLORIOUS. Especially "Abbey Road." It's like being a fly on the wall. I can hear the air from Ringo's bass drum on "The End" haha!  :lol:

 


I envy you bro.. I like the back up vocals of Happiness is a warm gun before, ano pa kaya ngayon! wooh Ringo's drum solo!!!! the more that it cannot be equalled :lol: thanks brian

On Beatles CD remasters 2009

I bought the first five albums at the same time. The were in stereo format and cost Php595.00 each. I think the mono versions are not available here. Personally, I thought Please Please Me, With the Beatles and Beatles for Sale were those that were not well transferred to CD format way back in 1987. So, they (the said titles) deserved to be listened first if indeed the enhancement can really be sensed.

Please Please Me:  Although digitally remastered at that time, the 1987 original version lacked the quality of a good recording from an album that was very well recorded and reproduced in the lp format. The music was of course the catch, however, from the standpoint of George Martin himself, the CD format was not satisfactory. Not because he is a Brit and has bias against CD, the LP format is simply beyond compared to the CD counterpart.

Right from the first track,you'll notice that the new remaster series does not aim to sound like the Anthology recordings (which were very digitized). Why? you'll hear the same "I Saw Her Standing There." But this time, Beatles sound is very rich in tone and musicality in its entirety. The defect is cured, although not to perfection but to enhancement, which is the objective of the new remasters. The improvement in "Please Please Me" calls my attention as to how innovative Beatles sound was way back then by the way Lennon would change chords quickly in the said song. Now you'll understand why the ricks and the vox would match, together with a pair of J-160s for acoustic. It made a big part for the Beatles sound in 1962.

With the Beatles: You don't have to listen to the entire CD, just select the track which you think were not recorded well in cd format. I chose "Money,"...and yes, there is enhancement. I was thinking of the lp version in mono..and I am surprised that even if it did not match the lp it was a competitive version of the cd.

I don't have to listen to the Beatles in mono just what Lennon would suggest. The stereo versions are enough. Mono can sometimes be boomy depending on your audio set up. And they are in CD format, just like the "Disraeli Gears" tracks which have mono versions. Though the instruments and vocals sound in one speaker, the mono does not provide the best version of simultaneous recording. That is of course, without overdubs. Stereo can also reproduce the best sound with good separations with respect to instrumentations and vocals. For instance, "'Til There Was You," the acoustic solo of George can be better enjoyed now than when it was first released because of the balance in sound and crisp of his guitar strings. Little by little, the Beatles secret to sound can be unveiled.

Beatles for Sale: By the way, all remasters are packaged in paper sleeve just like the lp/s only that they are in cd format and smaller of course. For the first time, the Gibson J-160s are really at work here...No Reply, I'm A Loser, Eight Days A Week, Baby's In Black, What You're Doing, I'll Follow the Sun...probably this is the birth of the acoustic album apart from the white album or sgt pepper's sessions. This was 1964. Even before, Dylan decided to combine the forces of martin/ gibson acoustic and electric sound. It defined a period that acoustic guitar is part of rock n roll. Of course, Elvis introduced this in his revolutionary "Blue Suede Shoes" and Everly Brothers' "Wake Up Little Susie." But B for Sale is an album and not simply a single. Not to mention also the variety of music taste in this album, from Mr. Moonlight to Holly's Words of Love, from rockabilly Honey Don't to Berr'y Rock n Roll Music, which by the way is also an improvement than the first cd release.

In all cds, Paul's bass has also become prominent just like Ringgo's drumming which were so flat in the previous cd release. Don't expect a "Love" recording here because that is a mix version full of artificial sound. No exagerration of recordings here if you intend to hope for extended cymbals or super low bass, or a tight recording like in other audiophile cds because the Beatles remasters were taken from the original cd themselves. They were just enhanced.

And of course, the 60s recordings are better than ever.

there were really songs in the original release that needs to be enhanced eg, help, eight days a week, when i get home, hold me tight per my humble observation.

how is it bro, do you personally think it can equal the stereo versions? nasanay na kasi tayo makinig sa stereo :wink:

If you read the historical and recording notes on Beatles remaster series, it stated there that mono was the prevailing recording technique at the time when some Beatles records were reproduced. Note: not all albums were re-issued in remaster mono versions. They did not also say that the Beatles sounded different or better either in stereo or  mono. Though, Lennon would suggest to listen the Beatles in mono. Likewise, Harrison was, for a time, confused about the stereo sound during the Rubber Soul sessions becuse they were so used to hear themselves in a single channel. The panning of the sound from one speaker to another was very new then. Stereo was developed at the height of over-dubs in music recording. Nowadays, kahit direct to disc ang recording, stereo sound na din ang gamit na technology. Maganda kasi ang separation ng instruments and vocals or other effects na pwede isama sa recording.

Sa mono ba, hindi?

I have some of the Beatles albums in lp mono versions recorded through direct metal master. It is a relatively new disc cutting technique. To compare lp and cd would not be fair. But for purposes of asking a  personal standpoint as to whether or not the mono can equal the stereo, I can say that the former can equal (or even surpass) the latter. In some cases. And some audiophiles will not object to this. In fact, they prefer the (more epensive, kasi mas mahal ngayon ang cartridge ng mono) mono sound especially among 50s/ 60s jazz and rock recordings. I am not really good at this, so I would rather look at this question by saying that both versions are good. It's just that cd enhancement for Beatles albums came in after more than 20 years.

But the Beatles remasters are in cd formats. Stereo or mono carts are not in issue here. Walang mono o stereo sa cd players kundi the re-prodroduction of the music itself ang pinag-uusapan. With the release of the new remasters, lalo lang napalapit ang Beatles sa mga music fans. The re-issues are not patterned to modern recordings as the Beatles sound is very much retained. Hindi 70s, 80s, 90s or 2000s ang sound, kundi 60s. Ganun dapat ang sound ng banda. Ganun dapat ang recording. No matter how good other recordings are, I don't think that they can match the Beatles.'  Kahit gaano kaganda at kamahal ng "Kind of Blue", "Dark Side of the Moon" (original at anniversary ed.) o "Unplugged" ni E. Clapton, sa "Sgt. Pepper's" pa din ako.  The first and last of its kind, recording and otherwise.

In the end, Music talaga ang appeal ng Beatles. Bonus lang kung maganda recording. E kaso, maganda ang recording. Hence, me bonus  :-)

Hereunder is a reproduction of C. de Quiros' write-up on the newly remastered cds of the Beatles

Theres The Rub
Heaven

By Conrado de Quiros
Philippine Daily Inquirer
First Posted 02:22:00 10/08/2009

It lives up to its rave reviews. It’s truly like listening to the thing for the first time.

It’s the remastered Beatles. The blurb says: “The albums have been re-mastered by a dedicated team of engineers at EMI’s Abbey Road Studios in London over a four-year period utilising state-of-the-art recording technology alongside vintage studio equipment, carefully maintaining the authenticity and integrity of the original analogue recordings. The result of this painstaking process is the highest fidelity the catalogue has seen since its original release.”

Or as another blurb swears, finally the Beatles have gotten the recordings they deserve.

I agree, hands-down enthusiastically. It’s as best as (current) digital technology can take them. Of course the analog is still better. The new versions may maintain the authenticity and integrity of the original analog recordings but they are not the original analog recordings. Vinyl, or plaka, has that distinction. The character Nicolas Cage plays in “The Rock,” who spent good money to buy the vinyl of a Beatles album (I do not now recall which), to the eternal bewilderment of a friend who proposed that the CD was way cheaper, will have no reason to rue his action even with the advent of these beauties.

They are heaven-sent, heaven currently holding address at Abbey Road. But before I get into them, let me tell you how I listened to them.

Over the years, I’ve surrendered to laziness and creeping age and given up on vinyl because of the work it entails. It’s not therapeutic washing the albums preparatory to playing them (they gather static, and I don’t have an automatic cleaner; it’s too damn expensive for what it does) when you’ve got deadlines hanging on your head like the Sword of Damocles. It’s aggravating. What I’ve done instead is to convert CDs to DVD Audio (what can I say—I’ve got a curious mind, and you can learn how through the Internet) to make them sound better.

Suffice it to say here that DVD Audio basically just expands audio files to their uncompressed form. The uncompressed form, however, eats up a lot of space, or bytes, so the ideal receptacle is the DVD. Think of the Audio DVD as the CD jacked up five times, making it sound clearer and more three-dimensional (or giving it a bigger soundstage, as the audiophiles like to say). It also sounds a little more analog.

Armed with this, I’ve converted the old Beatles CDs into DVD-Audio and listened to them—to much consternation. The CDs are horrible, or at the least the first five albums are, and turning them into DVD-Audio merely magnified their flaws. “Please Please Me,” “With the Beatles,” “Beatles For Sale,” “A Hard Day’s Night,” and “Help” sounded like some kid had been let loose in the studio, particularly at the echo volume controls. The guitars sounded like the strings were loose, or set to a lower pitch, vibrating wildly, overlapping with the voices in one messy, pudgy, amalgamated mass. It made the Beatles sound like a garage band.

The remastered series does wonders with those five albums in particular. The first thing you notice, with much surprise and jubilation, is how incredibly tight the new versions are. From the very first lines, “One, two, three four… Well, she was just seventeen,” you know you’re on a different plane. Gone is the warbly wailing, gone is the jumble of human and electronic ululations tripping each other all over the place, and there in all its pristine glory is Paul’s youthful voice accompanied by the solid thumping of guitars. That’s as rock-and-roll as rock-and-roll should be.

The clarity of the separation is a joy to behold, or hear. It gives the music a presence or immediacy that wasn’t there before. It’s not just that the voices seem more thrust to the foreground, it’s that they sound so limpid you feel as though you’re listening to John, Paul and George singing live in front of you. Paul McCartney’s “And I Love Her” and “Yesterday,” soar like that, as do John Lennon’s “Mr. Moonlight” and “You’ve Got to Hide Your Love Away.” I haven’t listened to those five albums in ages, precisely because they haven’t been a pleasure to do so.

I am listening, now.

The transformations (they’re more than makeovers) haven’t just benefited the earlier albums, they’ve done so the later ones as well. Except that the improvements are subtler. They stand out particularly in the pieces with full orchestral backgrounds. I’ve never heard “All You Need Is Love” sound more lush—as in luxuriant, and not as in drunk, though listening to it could get you in the latter state too. But it’s “Sgt. Pepper’s” and “Magical Mystery Tour” in particular that the remastering has been a boon to, those being the albums the “fifth Beatle,” George Martin, had a field day with. “She’s Leaving Home” and “A Day in the Life” are just awesome.

All in all, the sound is purer, bigger, clearer, though it does get a little sharp in some songs, which is the bane of digital. You can actually hear the individual voices in the background chorus, as well indeed as make out the words being sung. And a lot of background musical embroidery that wasn’t there before. It’s a lot better than Martin’s orchestral rearrangement of the songs in the double-album “Love,” which came out a couple of years or so ago.

I could go on and on, but some things are better heard than read. I guarantee, you ain’t heard it like this yet. How to get hold of it?

By George (or John, or Paul, or Ringo), be resourceful.

Awesome concert last night at the Rock Hall of Fame 25th Anniversary
[Posted by Dean Wien on Friday, 10/30/09 6:37 pm] [Comments] [Full Blog] [Tweet This]

Last night, the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame celebrated its 25th Anniversary at Madison Square Garden. I attended the show, and certainly witnessed one of the finest concerts ever!

It started at 7:30PM and ended around 1:30AM. The show opened with a video collage of all the inductees. There was some great footage of George Harrison and Paul McCartney. Jerry Lee Lewis opened the show, and then Crosby, Stills and Nash came on with special guests Bonnie Raitt and Apple Records Alumni James Taylor. Jackson Browne then came on. Next on was Paul Simon who did a solo set. He did an incredible tribute to his good friend George Harrison by bringing back Crosby, Stills and Nash back to the stage to perform "Here Comes The Sun" with him. He also performed "The Wanderer" with special guest Dion.


Throughout the night, special past events were mentioned that took place in The Garden, and "The Concert For Bangla Desh" was mentioned as the first Charity Concert. After Paul Simon's set, Simon & Garfunkel played together to an incredible standing ovation. Then Stevie Wonder took the stage with guests Sting, John Legend, B.B. King,Smokey Robinson, and Jeff Beck. After Stevies set, Bruce Springsteen & The E Street Band took the stage with special guests John Fogerty, Sam Moore, Darlene Love, and Tom Morello. The Special guest was Billy Joel. Bruce called it "The Tunnel and Bridge Summit". The last song of the night where everyone took the stage was You're Love (Higher & Higher).

Tonight will be Part 2 of the concert, with special guests U2, Metallica, Ray Davies of The Kinks and many many more. Stay tuned for a full report!

Me wasn't sure though but i think it was Ringo who said that & vowed he will never return to the philippines. George is my favorite among the four because of his ideas, at magagaling na talaga sila John at Paul right from the start e, si George nag uumpisa talaga, at sa bawat atpes na binibili ko dati, kay George agad ang pinakikinggan ko.

Back in those days, the Beatles were forcibly taken out from their hotel. They were literally kicked out. No more escorts from the time they left the hotel. Their earnings were also taken. One of the Beatles roadie was asked to come out from the plane to see uniformed men. That guy was scared thinking that he would be killed and asked the Beatles to say "I Love You" to his wife in case he didn't come back. Every member of that Beatles tour goup was scared.

I think there is nothing political about the Beatles' claim of the "hate" thing. In fact, they were happy to know that the Marcos regime had (finally) fallen.

something new here..

after 40 years, a George harrison unfinished song (during the Abbey road session) will be released soon with a little help from another song writer Dean Johnson


 
George Harrison

IT’S not every day you find  yourself writing a song with a  former Beatle.
But Wirral  singer/songwriter  Dean Johnson found himself  doing just that when he was asked  to complete  a fragment of a song  originally written by George  Harrison at the height of  Beatlemania.
The original 10 lines were given  to biographer Hunter Davies by  George for inclusion in his   Beatles biography published in  the late 1960s, but were put aside  and forgotten until  recently.

They were picked up by BBC  Radio Merseyside’s Spencer  Leigh, who suggested that maybe   a contemporary songwriter could  make the fragment into a song. He  approached Dean.
“Spencer called me out of the  blue and left a message saying he  had an interesting proposition  for  me,” explained Dean, from Oxton.

“I called him back and when he  said he would like me to work on  George’s unfinished song  I found  it unbelievable, tremendously  exciting and above all a complete  honour.

“My brief was to follow George’s  sentiment through to its  conclusion. The words were both  brutally  honest and compassionate and  Harrison was obviously writing  from the heart.

“I just tried  by my best ability  to get into the mind of someone in  George’s position and I am so  pleased that  most people who have  heard it, think I achieved a  credible continuity with the  original lyrics.”

The original fragment was  written by George when Hunter  had asked each Beatle to submit  a  sample of their handwriting. It  was then discarded as scrap paper  from the floor of Abbey Road   studio, where it is almost certain  that it would have been thrown  out by the cleaners if he had not   picked it up.

The Beatles bring down the Evil Empire

Beatle imitators start a Russian 'Revolution.'

The Beatles racked up a lot of achievements in their musical career, but now we have to add one more: destroying the Soviet Union. How the Beatles Rocked the Kremlin (Saturday, 12:03 a.m., PBS) convincingly argues that the Evil Empire was brought down not by the West's nuclear arsenal or its many anti-Communist institutions, but by "I Want to Hold Your Hand." A wide range of Russian interviewees insist that Beatles music smuggled into the country gave them the vision to doubt their repressive government, along with the courage to resist it.

"We listened to the music and it saved us," says one man. "It stopped us from being Soviet slaves. That's what the government was afraid of."
Indeed, the Soviet leaders did everything they could to stamp out the Beatle menace. Guards were posted at airports to intercept black-market records, and citizens could be arrested for expressing approval of "Can't Buy Me Love." Soviet tanks may have squashed resistance in Eastern Europe, but they were powerless against the spirit of freedom heard in the bootleg tapes passed from hand to hand. As an elderly Russian puts it in halting English: "First hole in Iron Curtain vas Beatles."

I hope your grandmother, who said back in 1964 that Beatles music was nothing but noise, feels suitably chastened.

while rock band The Who takes a break and Oaisis called it quits, Zak Starkey (Ringo's son) will again be heard.

Liam Gallagher recording with Zak Starkey
Great deals on musical instruments

Zak Starkey will be playing the drum kit on Liam Gallagher's debut solo album, it has been revealed.
According to the ex-Oasis frontman, he is working with several former bandmates on the project, which he will start work on next year.

Starkey, the son of former Beatle Ringo Starr, toured with Oasis between 2004 and 2008 and also plays with The Who in place of the late Keith Moon.

Gem Archer, who joined Oasis in 1999, will play electric guitar on the record, while bassist Andy Bell will also contribute.

Speaking to MTV, Gallagher confirmed that the musicians have already been demoing some new material and that he plans to release his album in July 2010.
"I'm feeling confident about the songs," he commented, adding that he believes "they could better than Oasis".

The Manchester band, who notched up hits such as Don't Look Back In Anger, Wonderwall and Live Forever, split during the summer after electric guitar player Noel Gallagher chose to quit.

Ringo Starr grabbed a little help from his friends for his new album Y Not, due January 12th, 2010. The Beatles drummer will be joined by his Fab Four bandmate Paul McCartney on a couple of tracks, including first single “Walk With Me,” which finds Macca and Starr sharing vocals. Other guests and songwriters on Y Not, Ringo’s first album since 2008’s Liverpool 8, include Joe Walsh, Joss Stone, Van Dyke Parks, Ben Harper and Richard Marx.

Talking about working with his old Beatles mate, Starr said in a press release, “Paul was doing the Grammys, so he came over to the house and was playing bass on ‘Peace Dream.’ So I played him this other track and Paul said, ‘Give me the headphones. Give me a pair of cans.’ And he went to the mike and he just invented that part where he follows on my vocal. That was all Paul McCartney, and there could be nothing better.”


“He makes it bigger and he makes it fuller,” Starr said of McCartney’s work on “Walk With Me,” which was co-written by Starr and Parks. “It makes the song like a conversation between us, and that was Paul’s idea to do his part one beat behind me. That’s why he’s a gen-i-us and an incredible bass player.” Macca last appeared on a Starr album over a decade ago, on 1998’s Vertical Man. The pair also reunited earlier this year at a benefit concert at Radio City Music Hall.

Joe Walsh is Ringo's in law

Ringo Starr Gives Brother-In-Law Work On His Next Album
by Paul Cashmere - November 21 2009
photo by Ros O'Gorman

Ringo Starr has given his brother-in-law some work, allowing him to play guitar on his next album. Mind you, his brother-in-law is Joe Walsh from the Eagles.

Obviously the Walsh marriage was the celebrity wedding no-one seemed to notice. Ringo and Joe became related last December when Marjorie Bach, the sister of Ringo’s wife Barbara Bach married in Los Angeles. It was Joe’s 4th marriage.

While that news seemed to slip by just about everybody in the media, including us, Ringo casually mentioned it in a press release this week announcing his new album.

In media release stated the cast of the album ‘Y Not’ is a “groovy and deeply felt song cycle that finds Ringo leading a smaller core group of old and new friends including longtime pal and recent brother-in-law Joe Walsh, Dave Stewart and longtime Roundheads member Steve Dudas on guitar, Benmont Tench of Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers on keyboards, Don Was and Mike Bradford on bass.

The album also features Starr’s engineer and co-producer Bruce Sugar on keyboards, as well as some special guests like Joss Stone, Ben Harper and Richard Marx on vocals, Ann Marie Calhoun on violin and Tina Sugandh ? aka Tina The Tabla Girl – on tabla and chanting. Starr’s songwriting collaborators on Y Not also include familiar and new names like Joe Walsh, Dave Stewart. Joss Stone, Glen Ballard, Richard Marx, Van Dyke Parks, Gary Nicholson plus Gary Wright and his former Roundhead band member, Gary Burr”.

Walsh and Starr wrote, played and sing the opening track ‘Fill In The Blanks”.
‘Y Not’ will be released on Hip-O Records though Universal in January.

Paul wins Gershwin award

Paul McCartney will be honoured with a fledgling but prestigious musical honour, after being named Monday as the latest recipient of the Gershwin Prize for Popular Song.

The U.S. Library of Congress, which administers the honour, announced the 67-year-old British musician and former Beatle as its third winner of the songwriting prize on Monday.

"It is hard to think of another performer and composer who has had a more indelible and transformative effect on popular song and music of several different genres than Paul McCartney," Librarian of Congress James H. Billington said in a statement.

Billington selected McCartney after discussion with entertainment industry leaders.
The Library of Congress houses the George and Ira Gershwin Collection, a vast resource of musical manuscripts, correspondence, photographs, other documents and memorabilia that originally belonged to the famed songwriting brothers.

"As a great admirer of the Gershwins' songs, I am highly honoured to be given the Gershwin Prize by such a great institution," McCartney said.

Organizers will celebrate McCartney with a star-studded tribute concert being planned for spring 2010, with a line-up of performers to be announced later.

First awarded in 2007, the Gershwin Prize was created by Bob Peter and Bob Kaminsky, Mark Krantz and Cappy McGarr — who also created the Kennedy Center's Mark Twain Prize for American Humor.

The first two Gershwin Prize recipients were musical icons Stevie Wonder and Paul Simon.

Even suggested (unsolicited) to Dyugs lately if they can do a video with Chino on bass since he'sleft handed & Kelvin on lead :-)

By the way, during the making of Let it be. Fighting between John, Paul & George was somehow intense that, John & paul wanted that their songs be on separated on sides A & B as released single. John & George nearly came to a fist fight. George walked out & told them that they'll each other in clubs

I thought the Beatles break up was because of MONEY. Getting fed up with Paul as sidemen was only a part of the story. Correct me if I am wrong, though it was not really highlighted, in the Anthology video, Paul was explaining how the other Beatles went to court asking for  relief regarding his action of buying in some shares of stocks at the Apple without the other members knowing. At that time, it was the father of late Linda E. who acted as an adviser to Paul. Although, later this was settled.

Probably, ownership of shares at the Apple made him think that he could now infuse his musical artisry without much argument and dictate the direction for the Beatles. Or may be not. But later on, the rest of the Beatles followed Paul's step to might as well be part of the Apple's list of shareholders.

Though, I am not sure whether or not the Beatles (either as individual or as a group) were the incorporators of the Apple, but this became an eyeopener. Later, other other acts also had their groups incorporated.

See, the Beatles were not just music revolutionaries, they also evolved to make music as their business too. It was not just the "art" after all...the money too.

sgt. Peppers concept had been pauls idea, and John was responsible for the best song of the Album which is A day in a life.

John saw the trouble coming when Brian Epstein died. John said " I knew that we were in trouble then, I didn't really have any misconceptions about our ability to do anything other than playing music" But Paul didn't see it that way. Paul is positive minded ( not saying John isn't, so with george & ringo), 5 days after brians death, he convinced them to do Magical Mystery Tour, which had been primarily paul's invention.

In 1969, they had been trying for days to write & rehearse new material for an upcoming live show- their first since August 1966 (San Francisco, If my memory still serves me right)- but the task wasn't going well. The only one who had any sense of urgency was paul. Said Paul " I don'y see why any of you, if you're not interested, got yourselves into this, what's it for? It can't be for money. Why are you here? I'm here because I want to do a show, but I don't see an awful lot of support."

You're right bro, Paul wanted to bring in Linda's father Lee Eastman and brother John Eastman to take the void left by Brian Epstein. All three felt that Paul already exercised enough sway over the Bands fate and they didn't want Paul's potential in laws overseeing their business. John in particular, thought he couldn't allow his partner such an upper hand.

The three wanted The Rolling stones manager Allen Klein which Paul didn't like. He didn't even sign the contract with Mr Klein.  :wink: next post naman. there's a lot of inside info about the break up of the Beatles- the best band the world ever had.

The issue about the other Beatles getting fed up as sidemen with Paul was also already discussed in John Lennon's interview with the Playboy Magazine just before his untimely death. John was unabashed to admit it. Likewise, in the book "The Love You Make, " Peter Brown also wrote the same issues about the story behind the break up. The book got a low rating for publishing Beatles stories about their downsides. But years later, Paul would corroborate the facts which John had previously said and Brown's analysis that contributed to the (Beatles) break up. Ringgo, more or less, said the same thing.

Yoko Ono: John wanted me to be a part of the group. He created the group, so he thought others would accept that.

The most dangerous tensions during January 1969, though, passed between Harrison and Lennon. George now found that Yoko sometimes sometimes had a voice in band matters that equaled or even bested his. When crucial issues came up, Lennon would say nothing, deferring to whatever Yoko thought- which drove the three Beatles crazy. Paul felt he had no place telling John to leave Yoko at home. When George walked out Paul & Ringo seemed shocked. Bot John was unruffled, essentially mocking Harrisons anguish. Later that day, Yoko took George place, grabbed a microphone & launched into a wordless blues while Ringo & Paul joined in just to keep John. John later that afternoon suggested recruiting Clapton to replace George but on January 12, 1969 the four of them met at Ringos house to resolve their differences.

But when Yoko persisted speaking in John's behalf George walked out again. The Beatles finally reached an accord later but George imposed stiff terms: No more talk of major live concerts and no more work at Twickenham studios (referring to the making of Let it be). Yoko will remain in attendance at all sessions, alongside John.

John reasoned out that Yoko only want to be accepted and become one of them, Ringo replied that she's not a Beatle and she will never be.

Mas gusto ko Phil Spector produced na "Let It Be" kaysa LIB..Naked. If LIB was released the way Naked was, it would not have become a legendary album. LIB could have just become an ordinary compilation of Beatles materials. Phil Spector even co-produced Lennon/Plastic Ono Band, Imagine and All Things Must Pass which became hit albums and were considered by music critcs as some of the most infuential albums of the rock era.

Si Paul & Ringgo lang naman ang umaangal. George Martin also was quoted saying that he did not want to have anything to do with the LIB recording because of the Beatles turmoil at that time.

The Wall of Sound did not change the Beatles sound. It was just produced that way. Hindi naman overcooked. It's just that the other Beatles did not have the taste for it. Despite some overdubs that were not originally part of the album, its rawness remains.

Not only that.

In March, Lennon turned over the Jan. 1969 tapes - which he described as "the [gooey brown stuff] load of badly recorded [gooey brown stuff] with a lousy feeling to it ever"- to legendary " The wall of sound" producer Phil Spector. Neither Klein nor Spector wanted George Martin involved. " I don't consider him in my league", Spector said, he's an arranger that's all.

The Let it be changes that Spector brought were, at best, for the worse, stifling both Pauls title song & heartfelt ballad " The long & winding road".His modification seemed so perverse at one point that Starr, who attended the overdubbing session, dragged the producer from the studio by the arm, and reprimanded him. During this time, Spector never consulted Paul about the changes he was making, which may have been Lennon & Kleins intention. After finally hearing Spectors new mixes, Paul requested changes, but Klein told him it was too late. (in late 2003, Paul & Ringo would issue a version of Let it be.. Naked, meaning Free from Spectors arrangements.

The Beatles break-up had long been written as early as ten years after they decided to call it quits. In fact just later after that decision, in  a TV interview, Lennon was almost near to admit the real story behind the falling apart. Of course at first, people found it hard to believe that the cause of the  Beatles ending was other than musical difference. After many years, the remaining Beatles were no longer reluctant to finally confess what contributed to the disintegration of the band.

Habang tumatagal, nare-realize ko na parang bitin 'yung songs sa Naked Let It Be. Parang sumobra sa pagka-raw. Parang nagsisisi tuloy ako kung bakit ito pa ang binili ko dati sa halip na Let It be orig release. Pampalubag-loob na lang ang inlay art at saka extra disc. :lol:

Me too bro, mas gusto ko yong orig release. But I don't have regrets buying the naked album. But if John is alive today he would be very happy hearing us .

firstly , welcome to the club bros ART & Teddy :-)

Di naman actually nilait tayong mga Pinoy. Iba lang kasi culture natin. nasanay tayo na if malaking tao tayo o nasa mataas na posisyon, ang iniisip natin na automatic pupunta ka sa akin as courtesy. sila naman, kailangan imbitahan mo. they were not invited formally to appear in Malacanang kaya di rin sila nagpunta, nagulat pa nga daw sila nong may news na lumalabas at the very time when they were still here. I guess plastic soul & ninejuicyjulius can tell you exactlly about this.. A little back read bros.

^ Uy, di ako Beatle expert Slowie! Di talaga.  :lol:

Pero ang naalala ko lang sa Beatles anthology interviews, wala lang talaga sa itinerary nila ang pagpunta kinaumagahan sa palasyo. Kung insulting comments naman against Pinoys, wala akong maalala na sinabi nila. Pero natuwa naman si Macca noong nalaman nilang bumagsak din ang imperyo ni Makoy. 'Yun nga lang, di mo na sila mapapabalik sa Pinas lalo na si Ringo. I've read somewhere too that once Macca knows that a Pinoy wants to interview him, he refuses.

Ringo Starr gets a star At the Walk of FAME!!!

Ringo Starr honoured on Hollywood Walk of Fame
Last Updated: Tuesday, February 9, 2010 | 9:28 AM ET Comments11Recommend12

The Associated Press

A star for former Beatles drummer Ringo Starr was added to the Hollywood Walk of Fame Monday evening during a whimsical ceremony that also marked the 50th anniversary of groundbreaking on the sidewalk attraction.
Starr's name was the 2,401st to be unveiled on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
"This is the start of the next 50 years of stars," he said outside the Capitol Records building. "I'm proud to be the first one."

The Walk of Fame also includes individual stars for the drummer's former Beatles bandmates John Lennon and George Harrison. Last month, rock legend Roy Orbison was honoured with a star.

"It's cool to get one at night," said Starr. "I don't know about you, but where I live, the stars come out at night."
The Beatles as a group were given a star in 1998.
'More than just a tourist attraction'

Those by Starr's side for the unveiling included actress-wife Barbara Bach, musicians Joe Walsh and Ben Harper, producer Don Was, director David Lynch and actor Noah Wyle.

The Hollywood Walk of Fame attracts an estimated 10 million visitors annually to the 18-block stretch lining Hollywood Boulevard and Vine Street.
The Hollywood Chamber of Commerce conceived the Hollywood Walk of Fame in 1953 in an effort to return glamour to the decaying neighbourhood at time when the film and television industry was on the decline.

"We've seen positive changes," said Hollywood Chamber of Commerce senior vice-president Bill Farrar. "We've seen an increase in housing, the opening of many new businesses, the significant reduction of crime and the continual influx of visitors. This walk represents much, much more. This is more than just a tourist attraction and a monument to art."

The Hollywood Walk of Fame's anniversary celebration will continue throughout the year with a community festival in July and a gala in November in which every living celebrity who has received a star will be invited to attend.
Other celebrities due to receive stars this year include rockers ZZ Top, funnyman Adam

Yeah bro marami nga din nag-sasabi na 'baka' isa yun sa reason, but eto lang din i'm not sure if 'real' kasi nalaman ko na the reason why, they agreed on the "moptop", nung una ayaw ni lennon...ang nag pa-umpisa talaga si 'Stuart' best friend ni lennon na classmate nya sa art school. At
nung time nasa Hamburg gig silang lima, nakilala ni stuart si Astrid... German bebot, na photographer/artist din at the same time. Ayun, naging-mag-jowa nga and eventually, inayusan ni Astrid si Stuart ng 'MOPTOP' look, na pa-uso o usong uso na at that time sa Hamburg,Germany na wala pang nakakaalam sa U.K.
YUn nga sinabi ni Stuart sa remaining Beatles na ganun na lang hairstyle nila, kasi dati mala-elvis brush-up goose upped kung tawagin nila or some sort. Rock & Roll..
Eventually, napapayag nila si Lennon sa huli nga & the rest was history..hehehe..
Ayun sana mag-confirm din yung iba nating Beatniks dyan if what I read is true or may relevance hehehe..

The first of a kind, one of the rarest concept of doing a concert at the roof of Twickenham studios was an abrupt decision, it was not planned.

Making the Let it be album original concept was to record a live album. That means no overdubbing. George Martin(during the stage of conceptualization) didn't like the idea since this is a very tedious job to do. just imagine for a single mistake, another take will be made. A tour was planned, one in India (george harrison must have chosen it) But since there were already tensions around, john was quoted saying let's do it in the moon out of his frustrations. Doing it at the roof top suddenly was the alternative.

question nga po pala: we know that john was the primary songwriter of "come together". sya rin po ba ang sumulat nung famoust bass riff nun or kay paul yun all the way? kasi, parang that song is heavily driven by that bass line considering that it's a lennon composition
Title: Re: anything about the Beatles ...
Post by: slowhandpal on February 25, 2010, 05:00:10 AM
@ audiodeft & some

Paul McCartney recalled in Rolling Stone magazine's 500 Greatest Songs: "I said, 'Let's slow it down with a swampy bass-and-drums vibe.' I came up with a bass line, and it all flowed from there." (thanks, Edward Pearce - Ashford, Kent, England)

John Lennon was sued for stealing the guitar riff and the line "Here comes old flat-top" from Chuck Berry's "You Can't Catch Me." The lawsuit did not come from Berry, but from Morris Levy, one of the music industry's most infamous characters. He owned the song along with thousands of other early rock songs that he basically stole from the poor, black, and unrepresented artists. Levy sued the Beatles, or more accurately, John Lennon, over the song around the time the Beatles broke up. For years, Lennon delayed the trial while he and the Beatles tried to sort out all the legal and business problems that plagued Apple Records. Finally, in an attempt to avoid the court room as much as he could (Lennon felt like he was appearing in court more often than not), he settled with Levy. In return for dropping the suit, Lennon agreed to record his Rock N Roll album, which was just a series of covers of songs Levy owned. Lennon always wanted to make a cover album and was thrilled to have the opportunity, and Levy wanted the value of his songs to increase, and when a Beatle re-records a song, that is just what happens. To make a long long long story short, Lennon recorded the album over the Lost Weekend, a year-or-two period when he was separated from Yoko Ono and lived in LA. During that time he was often drunk or high, and was rather sloppy and useless. Levy was getting frustrated with the lack of progress. Phil Spector was the producer, but in a fit of madness (which was not too unusual for Spector) he ran away and stole the recording session tapes. Levy invited Lennon to his upstate NY recording studio, and that is where he finally recorded the album. (thanks, Matthew - New York, NY)

The whispered lyric that sounds like "shoot" is actually Lennon saying "shoot me" followed by a handclap. The bass line drowns out the "me."

The Beatles recorded this on July 21, 1969 and it was the first session John Lennon actively participated in following his and Yoko's car accident 3 weeks earlier. John was so insistent on Yoko being in the studio with him that he had a hospital bed set up in the studio for her right after the accident, since she was more seriously injured than he was. (thanks, Adrian - Wilmington, DE)

The line "Ono sideboard" refers to Yoko.
The British Broadcasting Company (The BBC) banned this because of the reference to Coca Cola, which they considered advertising.

This has one of the most commonly misheard lyrics in the history of popular music: "Hold you in his -armchair- you can feel his disease." It's actually "Hold you in his arms, yeah, you can feel his disease." All published sheet music had the "armchair" lyric, including the inner sleeve of the 1967-1970 compilation, which contained lots of other errors too, notably on "Strawberry Fields Forever." After John heard that his lyric was incorrect in the sheet music and other folios, he decided he liked "armchair" better and kept it. (thanks, Mark - London, England)

The Beatles released this as a "double A side" single with "Something."

In 1969, this won a Grammy for best engineered recording.

When rumors were spreading that Paul McCartney was dead, some fans thought the line "One and one and one is three" meant that only George, John and Ringo were left. The line "Got to be good lookin' cuz he's so hard to see" was supposed to be Paul's spirit. (thanks, jill - placentia, CA)

Though Ringo is best known for playing on Oyster Black Pearl Ludwig drum kit, he used for this his Ludwig "Hollywood" maple-finish equipment, with a 22" kick. Starr produced his distinctive late '60s drum muffling sound on tracks like this by wrapping tea towels (dishtowels) around his snares and toms.

Paul is quoted as saying that John was not liberal in complimenting his bandmates "If you ever got a speck of it, you were grateful" Sp Paul was very pleased when John complimented him on the "swampy" arrangement idea that Paul came up with for the song. Both John and Paul knew at the time that the song was a rip off of "You Cant Catch Me" and wanted to make it sound as different as possible. What I like about this story is that despite so many rumors of how they didn't work together much at all in the later years, this story, if true, indicates that their collaboration was strong right up to the very end.

John & Paul wrote I wanna be your man, yellow submarine, good night and let Ringo sing it. Also on their early years when George was still learning to write songs Paul & John let him sing Do you want to know a secret & I'm happy just to dance with you. On the following stanza after the chorus of All my loving, George took the lead vocals so Paul can sing the tenor part.

The Beatles played 52 original songs in the month of January 1969.several of which would soon make up Abbey Road and would also appear as some of the best material on the group's members solo albums- all the bad feelings that been festering for some time. Paul tried to keep the others on track, but it was a thankless task. The others found his cajoling noxious and condescending. To them, it had become another Mc Cartney affair, with him telling everybody what notes and tempo to play, even telling the film director how to direct.

Ringo said that Paul wants us to work all the time because he was the workaholic. george Martin felt had little other choice. Paul would rather be over bossy, which the other boys would dislike according to George Martin. but it was only way of getting together.. It was just a general disintegration

Meanwhile, John's rhythm in "All My Loving" is truly revolutionary. Country style in rock n roll fashion. Bagay sa Ricks. If you watch their early live shows, you see how John makes the trick...pero mahirap pa din gayahin.

"You've Got to Hide Your Love Way"- The intro in the key of G did not exactly sound as the standard G. If you listen to Eddie Vedder's cover, he played the exact standard G. In the Anthology 2 album, John could be heard tuning the strings before the take. I think it was it was a deliberate deviation from the usual tuning. BTW, the song which was a Dylan influence was voted as one of the top 25 acoustic rock songs by Acoustic Guitar Mag.

jajaja sinabi mo pa, napakahirap talaga gayahin ang rhythm ng All my loving :| magaling din talaga si Lennon, kwela pa!

pertaining You've got to hide your love away, it reminds us of the right intro chord of A hard days night, naging palaisipan din yon minsan ng mga guitarist..

"you've got to hide your love away" was one of the beatles songs i truly played a lot sa acoustic when i first started playing. i got the chords from the beatles songbook by jingle magazine. ang galing kasi nung pagkakagawa nung song, as most of beatles' songs are. everything about it is great. then the flute part towards the end sealed the deal. pero syempre if you're going to play the song, instead of a flute, sisipol ka na lang. hehe

eto na, napapakanta na ko.... "here i stand with head in hand".........."gather round all you clowns"........ haha

I had to watch "Help!" particularly that part of "You've Got to Hide Your Love Away" to know the trick...di ko alam if I ever learned it  :-)

But I enjoyed playing it. Always do. Tried to play the flute part in harmonica, ala Dylan...he he.

What about "Julia"- a friend taught me to play this with capo on the 2nd fret and played it in the key of C. That part of G#7 I couldn't play right. I tried to look at Sean's style in "Come Together" but still couldn't get it. It's not an exact G#7 chord I suppose.

John may not be a Harrison, Clapton, Hendrix or any other guitar hero but he showed through his works that he made the acoustic guitar a big part of rock music. He had  a style. Doyle Bramhall chose him as one his best guitarists.

I've watched The Beatles Anthology Documentary Films last christmas, John accidentally discovered guitar feedback nung sinandal nya yung guitar sa naka-on na amp & after that he used that same feedback sa "I feel fine", and how they would travel ng dalawang bus rides (nung nag-uumpisa pa lang silang matutong maggitara) to a guy na alam kung paano gawin yung B7 chord  :-D.

Nandun din yung tragic manila concert nila, may mga black & white film footages during concert (albeit di mo maririnig silang kumakanta) at yung mga pinoy na sinusunog yung mga beatles album after the band snubbed the marcoses.

share ko lang po, nakita ko sa tumblr ko, ngayon ko lang nalaman ung iba  :lol:

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/culture/music/the-beatles/6150647/The-Beatles-20-things-you-did-not-know-about-the-Fab-Four.html (http://www.telegraph.co.uk/culture/music/the-beatles/6150647/The-Beatles-20-things-you-did-not-know-about-the-Fab-Four.html)

1. Impossible as it may sound there are still Beatles songs unreleased - the most notable ones being Carnival of Light (an experimental piece recorded on 5 January 1967 for The Million Volt Light and Sound Rave) and a 27-minute jam of Helter Skelter. A John Lennon composition the three surviving Beatles worked on in the early '90s prior to the Anthology release called Grow Old with Me also remains unreleased.

2. The Beatles (or at least half of it) sang for the Rolling Stones: Lennon and Paul McCartney provided backing vocals to the 1967 single We Love You.

3. Besides writing hundreds of songs for the Beatles, Lennon and McCartney also wrote dozens of songs for other artistes such as From A Window (Billy J. Kramer with The Dakotas), One and One Is Two (The Strangers with Mike Shannon), Step Inside Love and It's For You (Cilla Black), Come and Get It (Badfinger) and Woman (Peter and Gordon).

4. The Beatles’ third studio album A Hard Day’s Night is the only one to exclusively contain Lennon-McCartney compositions.

5. Paul is not McCartney's first name, James is. Lennon changed his middle name from Winston to Ono after marrying Yoko Ono in 1969.

6. At the end of Strawberry Fields Forever, Lennon is heard mumbling what sounds like "I buried Paul", which helped fuel the 'Paul is Dead' rumours. He's actually saying "cranberry sauce".

7. The only Beatles single to ever feature another musician on the credit is Get Back/Don't Let Me Down (credited to The Beatles with Billy Preston). Preston, recruited by George Harrison to ease the growing tensions in the band, played the Hammond organ on both songs.

8. Two days after Sgt Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band released, Jimi Hendrix opened his set at London's Saville Theatre with the title track, something McCartney considers his "single biggest tribute".

9. The final version of Strawberry Fields Forever was created combining two takes of the song in two different keys and speeds - a remarkable achievement considering the equipment and technology of the time - but still failed to fully satisfy Lennon. (meron ako mp3 neto! ung parang di siya natutuwa sa kanta puro first stanza lang muna)

10. The only Beatles track to be credited to Lennon and Harrison is an early instrumental called Cry for a Shadow recorded in 1961 when the band was backing Tony Sheridan. Flying and Dig It are the only two tracks to be credited to all four Beatles.

11. The BBC banned several Beatles songs - I Am the Walrus (for the use of the word 'knickers') and Fixing a Hole, Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds and A Day in the Life (all for alleged drug reference).

12. The working title for the film Help! was Eight Arms to Hold You.

13. For the Sgt Pepper album cover, cutouts of Adolf Hitler, Mahatma Gandhi, and Jesus Christ were requested by Lennon, but ultimately they were left out, though a cutout of Hitler was made for use.

14. Ringo Starr was the first to actually leave the group, walking out in 1968 during the acrimonious White Album sessions. As a result, the remaining Beatles all took turns on the drums for some of the tracks. When Starr finally returned he found his drum kit covered in flowers.

15. The closest the Beatles came to reuniting was at Eric Clapton's wedding to Patti Boyd in 1979, where McCartney, Harrison and Starr played. Lennon did not attend.

16. The last time Lennon and McCartney played together was at the Los Angeles Hit Factory studio in 1974. The abysmal (and possibly drug-fuelled) session, which also featured Stevie Wonder and Harry Nilsson, was of such bad quality that the bootleg recording was released as A Toot And A Snore In 74.

17. Lennon and McCartney each recorded demos called India which remain unreleased. Each of them also recorded a version of Fats Domino's Ain't That a Shame for their rock and roll albums (called Rock 'n' Roll and Снова в СССР respectively).

18. The first song ever written by Lennon was called Hello Little Girl. McCartney's first was I Lost My Little Girl.

19. Lennon was charged with plagiarism by Chuck Berry's publisher over Come Together which resembled Berry's 1956 song You Can't Catch Me. The case was settled out of court. George Harrison faced and lost a similar lawsuit over his solo hit My Sweet Lord which resembled the Chiffons' He's So Fine. (interesting... )

20. Lennon's number 9 connection: Lennon was born on 9 October 1940, his son Sean was also born 9 October, 1975. He wrote the songs #9 Dream (part of Lennon's ninth solo album Walls and Bridges which was released in the ninth month of 1974 and peaked at number 9 in the US charts) and with the Beatles - One After 909 and Revolution 9. He lived in apartment number 72 on 72nd Street in New York and was killed in the evening of December 8 when it was already early morning of December 9 in his birthplace of Liverpool.

A lot of info here. I honestly didn't know this before :-) thanks a lot spongegen :wink:

I downloaded their old Anthology Documentary films na matagal ng pinalabas sa UK, mga short film clips lang habang iniinterview sila.

Regarding if Brian Epstein is gay, parang... yung song na "Baby, You're a Rich Man", nung nirerehearse daw nila yung kanta (according to an article na nabasa ko a long time ago), pinapalitan daw ni Lennon yung main chorus line, ginagawa nyang "Baby, you're a rich man too" into "Baby, you're a rich fag jew". And parang yung kanta ay patungkol kay Epstein, kasi mayroong line na "you keep all your money in a big brown bag", dahil after ng concert(s) ng Beatles mayroon pang kick-back si Epstein dun sa kita sa concert (parang under the table) na usually nakalagay sa brown paper bag.

Si Yoko ba yung kumakanta sa "The Continuing Story of Bungalow Bill" fr. the White Album LP?



Yoko sang the line, "Not when he looked so fierce." on "Bungalow Bill". That's her alright.
I have the book The Beatles Complete Recording Sessions by Mark Lewisohn and endorsed by EMI. The book affirms this one.

The making of A day in a life. One of the most beautiful songs of John. His vocal here is beyond compare.

This being the last song on the album, The Beatles found an interesting way to close it out. After the final note, Lennon had producer George Martin dub in a high pitched tone, which most humans can't hear, but drives dogs crazy. This was followed by a loop of incomprehensible studio noise, along with Paul McCartney saying "Never could see any other way," spliced together. It was put there so vinyl copies would play this continuously in the run-out groove, sounding like something went horribly wrong with the record. Kids, ask your parents about vinyl.

The final chord was produced by all 4 Beatles and George Martin banging on 3 pianos simultaneously. As the sound diminished, the engineer boosted to faders. The resulting note lasts 42 seconds, and the studio air conditioners can be heard toward the end as the faders were pushed to the limit to record it.

I bought the book at National Bookstore 3 years ago at P800.00 (mediyo mababa baba ng kaunti run, sinakto ko na lang). It is a white hardbound book and for that price it is VERY CHEAP - perhaps because it was printed in China. I don't know if it is easily available today. So inquire ka muna sa mga branches malapit sa iyo. If say the book is available in another branch, you can request it to be pulled out para mabili mo na malapit sa iyo.

A day in a life is also very interesting. Not only was the four Beatles plus George Martin playing the piano, Malcolm Evans - their gentle giant roadie - also played the E Major chord there. Geoff Emerick thought of the brilliant idea of boosting the faders so as to maintain the volume as the pianos (yes, if I remember right there were 3!) fade out.

The late 1966-1967 era of the Beatles is their most fascinating times. Their most creative and also the final days of their united creativity.

I am blessed to own the UK versions of all their albums and everytime you listen to them, there is always something new to discover.

I am just hoping to acquire the original UK pressing of Pepper because that was the only issue with the high pitch whistle and the run out groove noise. Not even the original Capitol US issue have this.

Unfortunately, the original UK pressing costs an arm and a leg in its mint condition. I am hoping when the 2009 remasters are released on vinyl, it will contain the whistle and the run out groove noise. Probably, that will cost a bit lower.

Lennon wrote this about a guy he met at the Maharishi's camp in India who loved to hunt. The 4 Beatles went on the retreat to study meditation, but were not impressed with the results.

The hunter's name was Richard A. Cooke and his wife Bronwyn explained in Mojo magazine September 2008 that Richard, "had asked the Maharishi if it was a sin to kill a tiger. John and George were in the room. Maharishi's response was, 'Life destruction is Life destruction.' Rik has not shot anything since. He became a freelance photographer for National Geographic."

Yoko Ono sang the line "Not when he looked so fierce." It was the first female vocal on a Beatles song.
The opening riff that sounds like a flamenco guitar was played on a Mellotron, which is a type of synthesizer.

Ringo's wife Maureen sang harmony.

The Beatles recorded this in an overnight session. Everyone around the studio was invited to sing on the chorus.

George Martin (from Q Magazine, July 2007): "John's voice was the kind of thing that would send shivers down your spine. If you hear those opening chords with the guitar and piano, and then his voice comes in, 'I heard the news today, oh boy' It's just so evocative of that time. He always played his songs to me on the guitar and I would sit on a stool as he strummed. The orchestral section was Paul's idea. We put two pieces of songs together that weren't connected in any way. Then we had that 24-bars-of-nothing in between. I had to write a score, but in the climax, I gave each instrument different little waypoints at each bar, so they would know roughly where they should be when they were sliding up. Just so they didn't reach the climax too quickly. With A Day In The Life, I wondered whether we were losing our audience and I was scared. But I stopped being scared when I played it to the head of Capitol Records in America and he was gob smacked. He said, That's fantastic. And of course, it was."

Yup, si Pete Best na. Wala na si Stuart dito, nagdecide sya na magpursue na lang sa art. As per Paul, yung skill nya sa bass guitar ay basic lang (just sticking to root notes). Eventually pinahiram nya yung bass nya kay Paul nung umalis na sya sa band (wag lang daw nyang babaligtarin yung mga strings).

I will, written by Paul in the camp. There's a vid of him singing in the porch of where they're staying wearing that white indian pajamas style dress. Dear Prudence, the sister of actress Mia Farrow(?) na nagkulong lang sa kanyang kwarto ("dear prudence, won't you coma out & play") during the whole week(s) of sessions.

During a Rolling Stone interview sometime in 1971, Lennon was asked how was George as a guitarist. He said he was good. He would laughed. He added that: but he preferred himself. One could ask Eric (Clapton) if he could play. He could make his guitar sing. He was a rhythm guitarist who made a valuable contribution to the Beatles sound. Though, he admitted that he would no longer improve his playing. Anyway, he was not interested in getting technical.

George as an artist. John said that he had not yet made his best work. He just developed. However, he could not assess him.

On quitting Beatles. He was the first one to manifest it. He was advised by Paul not to go public about it. But it was Paul who actually went first. John was upset. He should have gone public first.

On people claiming that they made Beatles. John would say F--k them. It was the Beatles who made them. There was no [sausage] James music or a George Martin music. There was Beatles music.

A day in a life

David Crosby was at Abbey Road studios when The Beatles were recording this. In an interview with Filter magazine, he said: "I was, as near as I know, the first human being besides them and George Martin and the engineers to hear A Day In The Life. I was high as a kite - so high I was hunting geese with a rake. They sat me down; they had huge speakers like coffins with wheels on that they rolled up on either side of the stool. By the time it got the end of that piano chord, man my brains were on the floor."

Peter Frampton had to listen to Sgt. Pepper's lp and would not get out of his room for a while.

Bryan Wilson had to congratulate fellow Beach Boys at the time Sgt Peppers was released.

Uk radio stations play altogether Sgt Peppers lp/ album to commemorate its anniversary.

Sgt Peppers was voted as the No. 1 album of all time by the Rolling Stone Mag.

Sgt Peppers is the no. 1 album by the RS Mag for the pd. 1967-1987.

Sgt Peppers remains to be my No. 1 album of all time.

According to Lennon, Sgt Peppers was the peak.

For me naman.. Abbey Road but I like Sgt. Peppers too because of:

1. John's extraordinary vocal rendition of A day in a life. No offense to Bee Gees fans pero para sa akin angat talaga ang version ni Lennon.
2. Paul's bass lines on A little help from my friends. He conducts the orchestra too.
3. Ringo's drum fill ins in A day in a life, first of a kind. Never heard like that one before.
4. George's riff on Sgt. Pepper's reprise but I hate the Indian music in within you without you.

By the way Paul's jacket was marked OPD on its arm. Some said it means Officialy pronounced Dead (Paul is dead theory)

yes it is. Ang let it be at Abbey Road din. Halos sunod sunod din ang recording sessions non.
Had it been released in double LP, meron na namang superb bass line si Paul don sa Penny Lane at... Strawberryfields forever ni John at fill ins ni Ringo. George's riff on Hello goodbye and then again there was this Blue Jay Way Indian music flavored which I don't like so much.

The other Beatle song written by the four Beatle is in the Let it be album.Is it Dig it or Maggie Mae?

It would have to be Dig It - which is essentially a jam session with words thrown in. Maggie Mae I think is a traditional British folk tune which the arrangement is credited to the four. Plus OPD means Ontario Police District on Paul's police uniform in Pepper.

In terms of chronology, Flying is not the first song credited to all four. Technically it would have to be a 12-bar blues instrumental recorded during the Rubber Soul sessions. But this remained unreleased until 1996 on the Anthology 2 compilation. In a sense, Flying is the first Beatle track in which all four were credited as writers to be released.

By the way, one should get the Sgt Pepper in BOTH MONO AND STEREO. The mixes are totally different.

I personally don't believe that Magical Mystery tour is a continuation of Pepper. It is their first project after the death of Brian Espstein. It is more of a project to hold the band together as Epstein's death really affected the band so badly. John thought of disbanding the Beatles after Epstein. George and Ringo was in a state of confusion. It was only Paul who kept it so together. The only thing MMT links with Pepper is that Strawberry Fields and Penny Lane were recorded on the Pepper sessions and released in MMT as album cuts in the American album of MMT. MMT was never released in UK in LP format until 1976.

For the record Pepper and MMT were the creations of Paul McCartney. It was their response to the psychedelic era that ironically became a template for other psychedelic albums to be made in the future.

Abbey Road (AR) is my ultimate pop album. Wala ka nang hahanapin pa. Cover pa lang classic na. Of course some will dispute to this. But AR is not an ordinary pop album. I say better than Fleetwood Mac's Rumours, MJ's Thriller or Carole King's Tapestry. AR contributed to shape up pop music. It set the standards. 

Sgt Pepper's may have accomplished this. But to me, the album marked a time when there was only then a thin that separarted pop and rock music. This is why Pet Sounds would catch up as one best albums of the rock period.

Paul was applauded for this. Many thought that it was his whole idea that AR came about. Probably, because John was no longer interested in making albums but to put up with a hit song; hence, 'Come Together.' George just developed. It was an end and a beginning of something. Even as they were about to disband, Beatles managed to put up a happy album that defines a period in music after the Sgt Pepper's or the psychedelic era.

It was a nice farewell from the band who gave their nerves to make good music.

each of them, most probably, had developed huge egos in the latter part of the band's career. no one wanted to take $hit from one another anymore..... i guess it was really just a matter of time.....but yeah, i think paul was very prolific.... and in fact, what amazes me more about the beatles is the amount of absolutely great music they were able to make in such a short of period of time. i could'nt think of any other band like that. led zep would probably be the closest in that department. just my opinion.........

Ang galing nyang gumawa ng melody, I have an audio na parang practice lang during breaks nila sa studio wherein paul was singing "just another day" (which was release later sa Wings band) na hindi pa kumpleto, pero ok na yung main melody.

Paul is still amazing as he was before. I viewed his Space between US concert again last night, their music really transcends from generation to generation! You can see a 1 or 2 year old baby brought by his parents just to watch Paul live. Aged persons too 70 to 80s! ..and.. the show was aired into the outerspace! using NASA equipment of course!, you can see the astronauts watching Paul. First of a kind :wink:

The most amazing thing about this band is that no two albums are totally alike. And the mind blowing speed of development. No band has ever changed their sound in 5 years and everyone can hear the development on records. Please Please Me and Sgt. Pepper's are just under 5 years apart and YET there is almost no similarity between the two.

Across the universe..

Bird noises were dubbed in to this version to create a nature theme.This song is often cited as an example of tensions between Lennon and McCartney over treatment of each other's songs. When The Beatles went to record it in February of 1968, both Lennon and McCartney decided they wanted falsetto harmonies on the song. No matter what he did, John said he was sounding out of tune, so Paul went outside and grabbed two "Apple Scruffs" named Lizzie Bravo and Gaylene Pease to add the background harmonies.

John is quoted again about that, saying, "the original track was a real piece of s--t. I was singing out of tune, and instead of getting a decent choir, we got fans from outside. They came in and were singing all off-key. Nobody was interested in doing the tune originally." In another interview, he said, "The Beatles didn't make a good record of it. I think subconsciously sometimes we - I say 'we' although I think Paul did it more than the rest of us - Paul would, sort of subconsciously, try and destroy a great song... meaning we'd play experimental games with my great pieces, like 'Strawberry Fields,' which I always thought was badly recorded."

The two young women Paul grabbed off the street to sing backup appear on the World Wildlife recording of the song, but not on the version on Let It Be.

On quitting Beatles. He was the first one to manifest it. He was advised by Paul not to go public about it. But it was Paul who actually went first. John was upset. He should have gone public first.


By the time ABBEY ROAD was released on Sept. 26th, the Beatles fellowship had effectively ended. On Sept. 13th, John Lennon and Yoko Ono performed at the Toronto Rock in Roll Revival, with a makeshift group that included Eric Clapton, and the experience convinced Lennon that he could no longer withstand the confines of his old band. A week later, during a meeting at Apple- with Klein, the Beatles and Ono in attendance- Mc Cartney tried once more to persuade his bandmates to undertake and return to the stage. "Lets get back to square one and remember what we're all about" he told them. Lennon responded " I think you're daft. I wasn't going to tell you, but I'm breaking the group up. It feels good. It feels like a divorce"

The people in the room didn't know whether to be shocked or take the claim as another show of bravado on Lennon's part. Nobody including Ono- this would happen on this day. "Our jaws dropped" Mc Cartney said. For once, Mc Cartney and Klein were in agreement. They persuaded Lennon to hold off any announcement for at least a couple of months.

Klein had just finished a new deal that won the Beatles substantial increase in royalty rates, he didn't want to spook EMI with the knowledge that the band was breaking up. Plus, both Klein & Mc Cartney believe that that Lennon might reconsider; it wasn't uncommon for him to swing between extremes. But Ono knew better, and she was as unhappy as anybody else in that moment. "We went off that car" she later told Philip Norman, And he turned to me and said" That's it with the Beatles. From now on it's just you- OK?" I said " My God those three guys were the ones entertaining him for so long. Now I have to be the one to take the load."

Ken C. Pohlmann is a professor emiritus at The University of Miami in Coral Gables and author of numerous articles and books, including Principles of Digital Audio and Master Handbook of Acoustics. HIs pick for best sounding Beatles song is " Tomorrow never knows"- not so much of sound quality per se, but because a dozen radical studio experiments were tried on that song. and the boys nailed everyone of them.

Few of the many reasons why I love John are because of his:

1. Song writing genius, clever lyrics and nice melody on

a. In my life
b. Julia
c. All you need is love
d. Real love
e. Imagine
f. Because


2.extraordinary vocals on (The only Beatle who is listed as one of the top vocalist of all time, I read it from a magazine)

a. It's only love
b. Sexy Saddie
c. A day in a life
d. Happiness is a warm gun
e. Mother
f. Watching the wheels
g. Stand by me

3. Guitar works on

a. All my loving
b. Julia
c. Get back
d. The end ( Paul, George & John trading licks )
e. The Ballad of John & Yoko

4. Humor & antics

a. in interviews
b. in performance, particularly at the Shea Stadium when he used his elbow in that vox organ for the I'm down number

5. Unselfishness & love.

a. He took a leave of absence from the music scene to be a father to Sean to redeem his failure to Julian.

b. He enlisted a member in the early years of the Beatles despite being mediocre in skills. Was it Stu who turns his back from the audience to hide his poor skills? But there was also a humor  :wink:that this guy was hired because he's the only one among them whos got a Radio Phono which they use to listen for songs that they later cover. Not sure if its Stu but difinitely not Pete Best

Nyaah, audiophile  :-D. Regular listener lang ako, haha. Nacompare ko lang kasi yung mp3's ripped from vinyl copy of the Help album from the CD copy (correct me if I'm wrong), dun sa mp3-vinyl mas litaw yung pagka-stereo, sa mga cd music kasi ngayon halos pantay yung left-right channels (you can listen listen to whole song using only, let's say the right part of you earphone), dun kasi sa mp3-vinyl nung beatles talagang hiwalay yung vocals sa instruments via left & right channels which makes for a more 3D stereo sound. It also helps na maganda yung mp3 player ko (an old sony mp3 walkman), a good pair of earphone & a higher mp3 bitrate. As for the sound quality ng vinyl from cd (I'm not an audiophile), pero sabi nung mga experts mas warm daw yung sound ng vinyl from cd & sabi pa ng iba pag iko-convert mo into digital music yung vinyl mo, use FLAC format imbes na mp3 dahil hindi raw kayang icompress ng buong buo nung mp3 format yung music from vinyl, downside lang yung FLAC format can take up huge storage space (usually 40-50 mb per song).

Yung hissing (& popping sound) na naririnig mo sa vinyl ay yung needle na tumatama usually sa dust particles at mga gasgas mismo nung vinyl (natatanggal 'to pag kino-convert yung vinyl to digital), yung tape hiss naman ay yung magnetic head na nagri-read mismo sa surface ng tape.

Abbey Road (AR) is my ultimate pop album. Wala ka nang hahanapin pa. Cover pa lang classic na. Of course some will dispute to this. But AR is not an ordinary pop album. I say better than Fleetwood Mac's Rumours, MJ's Thriller or Carole King's Tapestry. AR contributed to shape up pop music. It set the standards.  

Sgt Pepper's may have accomplished this. But to me, the album marked a time when there was only then a thin that separarted pop and rock music. This is why Pet Sounds would catch up as one best albums of the rock period.

Paul was applauded for this. Many thought that it was his whole idea that AR came about. Probably, because John was no longer interested in making albums but to put up with a hit song; hence, 'Come Together.' George just developed. It was an end and a beginning of something. Even as they were about to disband, Beatles managed to put up a happy album that defines a period in music after the Sgt Pepper's or the psychedelic era.

It was a nice farewell from the band who gave their nerves to make good music.

It simply showcased their enormous talent as a group & individually.

My favourite songs on this album

1. Here comes the sun- Written at Eric Claptons garden, after the tensions in Let it be George probably is seeing a new beginning. Nice melody, acoustic guitar works and Drum fill ins.

2. Octopuses garden- Originally written in the key of C which Ringo always do for convenience, George transposed it later to the key of E. Nice music & lyrics. Superb guitar solo, drums too.

3. Come together- Nice music & lyrics. Superb bass lines, guitar solo & drums.

4. Something- The most beautiful love song ever written for Frank Sinatra which he mistaken as Lennon Mc Cartney song. Nice work on bass, guitar solo & drums too. This song was inspired by James Taylor Something in the she moves.

5. Oh darling- Nice melody. Nice vocal rendition by Paul, bass, guitar riffs & drums are awesome.

6. Her majesty- This song is not actually intended for official release. Very short song but it has a complete version.

7. Because- great vocal blend, music & lyrics too. Inspired from a classical sonata. Great orchestration by George Martin

8. Sun king/ Mean Mr. Mustard/ Polythen Pam/ She came in though the bathroom window. guitar & drum works are very very good

9. Golden slumbers/ carry that weight/ The end. One of the songs by Paul I really love. Who can ignore the drum solo by Ringo & the guitar solos which Paul, George & John displayed here.

Had Her majesty been deleted, their farewell song would have been The end. Mere coincidence do you think or they did it deliberately?

There is a HUGE difference! Especially if you have a high end hi-fi system.
This is in relation strictly to Beatles recordings. Although cd quality have improved over the years (the way to remix reocrdings for cd release is very different from lp release), the precision of digital data is still obvious to people. One obvious characteristic of digital sound is how the bass travels from the speaker to your ears. The bass sounds so "in your face" while in analogue sources, the bass kinda creeps slowly before reaching your ears. I guess you can say that to digital sound overall.

You must remember, what you are hearing in cds, mp3s are COMPUTER DATA. It is a "reflection" or "image" of a real sound source. Therefore it still sounds artificial.

Have you ever noticed on the advent of digital photography and photoimaging that a person can look really really good in digitally enhanced photos? Removing scars, pimples and other imperfections. That is my analogy on digital sounds - it is too good to be true. When you compare it to vinyl, the source hiss, the sometimes wow and flutter actually adds to the overall enjoyment of the sound because you are hearing a pure signal not a digitally enhanced data.

Mp3s? They even sound thin compared to cd because it is compressed and has sound quality loss due to compression. Listen very very carefully, you will hear a lot of times a kind of flanging sounds here and there - that's the compression.

The loudness war in digital music did not help too. Almost all cds today that you can buy in record bars are very loud and too compressed one can feel fatigue after listening to one hour of straight music. That doesn't happen in vinyl.

Across the universe.. :wink:

On February 4, 2008 "Across The Universe" became the first track to be beamed directly into space. It was transmitted through NASA's antenna in the DSN's Madrid Deep Space Communication Complex, towards the North Star, Polaris, 431 light-years from Earth. The broadcasting of the Fab Four song was done to mark both NASA's 50th birthday and the 40th anniversary of "Across The Universe." Paul McCartney described the transmission as an "amazing feat" adding, "Well done, NASA. Send my love to the aliens!" (Thanks to our Beatles expert Pattie for assisting with these. Check out her website at luvmedeux.com.)

On The End, the three Beatles traded two bar licks each. If I am not mistaken, Paul comes first then John then George. The order of the solo is on the liner notes of my Anthology 3 LP. I'll get back to you once I read the liner notes again. Wala ako sa bahay e.

As far as the book "The Love You Make" is concerned, "The End" is the last song. Of course this is not true. The writer was just trying to make  a statement:

"The Love you take is equal to the love you make...", which according to the writer were the last words of the last song of the last album by the Beatles.

Ok, I just got home and holding my Anthology3 triple LP. I will quote the liner notes to "The End":

"No other group has delivered such an apt farewell as the Beatles: except for the brief "Her Majesty" thrown into the Abbey Road master tape almost as an afterthought, the last song on the Beatles' last recorded album was titled "The End". Owing to the way the Beatles recorded it, only one of the seven basic track takes of this piece has vocals - the master, Take 7. The version presented here is a new remix, however, embracing numerous elements omitted during the mix sessions for Abbey Road. In particular, there is considerable more guitar, and a further appreciation of the "sparring" section can be gained - from 19 until 55 seconds in, Paul, George and John, in that order, take turns to play two bars of the guitar solo. The 30 piece orchestral overdub, taped at tremendous cost considering it lasts less than 20 seconds, also appears more prominently in this new mix."

And there you have it. From the liner notes done again by Mark Lewisohn. This is the official word on The End guitar solo.
Title: Re: anything about the Beatles ...
Post by: slowhandpal on April 08, 2010, 10:55:59 PM

Ringo doesn't like drum solos. At first he doesn't want to perform one in The end song. But the three Beatles successfully persuaded him to do it since the song requires it. After recording the track they realized that it created few more bars to fill, not with lyrics this time but instrumental. John suggested what if they'll fill it with guitar solos from them. Paul volunteered to take the opening and John said he already have in mind the notes for the last two bars. George was left with no choice but to take the middle but he'll put guitar riff as the song ends. After rehearsing an hour or two, they nailed it. George Martin once commented that the Beatles were just so professional on this session.

By the way, the classic drum solo.. were played by Paul's great drummers on his tours.. The great Phil Collins & Mike Portnoy too but for me.. Nobody does it better that Ringo! 8-)

Does Mc Cartney remember recording the take it in turns guitar solos that arrive just before the end, split-in order between him, George and John? Yeah, absolutely. Studio two. Great fun. Competitive? Yeah but in a cool way. Mc Cartney says, "John's is sort of rough and ready, George is more lyrical, mine is in between."

Re: The End

In his interview with the RStone Mag after the Beatles 'break up', John said that the order of guitar solo on the said song was Paul, George and him. He even complained that his could hardly be heard. If you are familiar with the Beatles sound, it is not so hard to identify who's who on that song. George's part was most prominent as evidenced by his (more) lyrical solo and sound. This is not to underestimate the other two guys, as they themselves were multi-musicians. Paul could have been a better lead guitarist had he been given the chance. Or, George and John could have been better bassist or a drummer. But, as John would put it, the deadlines made it hard for them to 'specialize'. Anyway, he was not interested in getting technical about his guitar playing. To him it's enough that he could play (even preferred himself than George). He would not improve, he admitted.

Well if you play an Epiphone Casino on an overdriven Fender amp, you will definitely have that scooped mid, spongy tone that will be quite drowned a bit compared to George's Rosewood Telecaster that has that very punchy tone.

He never did the same thing twice! Listen to all the Beatles records and he never repeated any drum pattern, fills and small licks here and there. In fact there is only one drum solo in his entire Beatles career - NOT TWICE. His disadvantage (lack of amazing technique) becomes his advantage (ever notice he never did a drum roll?).

He was never a technician, he was not necessarily a groove meister either (a la Jeff Porcaro). But one thing that is very very admirable about Ringo is his drumming is ROCK STEADY! Very very solid and very very steady. Even magnificent technicians get inspiration from Ringo Starr, Ringo keeps them back to earth.

Yes I observed his playing very carefully, Ringo doesn't repeat fill ins in every song. napansin ko agad yon sa If I feel pa lang, then onwards.

.. hi Bryan.. parang may drum solo sa Birthday aa 10 measures ata yon..

Ringo said in a magazine that his son Zakk is more technical than him, but it doesn't necessarily mean that Zakk is a better drummer than him (Ringo).

Shucks ! You got me there. Although it is not necessarily a drum solo in a strictest sense of the word. Kasi it sounds more like a transition to a next segment of the song.

Zakk to Ringo is like Jason to John Bonham. Jason and Zakk have more technique and skills. But no one can say that they are more influential than their daddies!

Added lyrics to the song..

Whatever happened to the love that we once knew, could we really live without each other? when did we lose that touch that seem to mean so much..

Nagkahiyaan pa raw si Paul at George dito sa karagdagan lyrics.

Added lyrics to the song..

Whatever happened to the love that we once knew, could we really live without each other? when did we lose that touch that seem to mean so much..

Nagkahiyaan pa raw si Paul at George dito sa karagdagan lyrics.

By contract! Then have an agreement of sorts when they signed to [sausage] James that all their compositions whether written together or separately will be credited to both.

Although a lot of times they ask help from each other to help out find a more suitable chord, lyric, riff or a bridge.

Sadly, [sausage] James duped them in 1969. But that's another story.

guys, correct me if my observation is off, pansin ko kasi sa songwriting style ni john and paul, john has a more creative lyrics. magaling ang word playing. and sometimes nga medyo abstract both yung lyrics and music. si paul naman yung medyo romantic. a lot of emphasis sa melody. sa lyrics nya simple and medyo straight to the point. thus, it may be one of the reasons bakit mas maraming hits ang mc cartney penned songs........ i was looking at the tracks of the 1 album, and i noticed mas maraming number one si paul.

malalim sumulat si John para sa akin.. lalo na Imagine, Happy Christmas (War Is Over), Give peace a chance, Julia, across the Universe, All You Need Is Love, Because

By the way I watched the American Idol few nights ago, mas madami kinanta songs ni Paul. 1)The Long & winding Road 2)Let It Be 3)All My Loving 4)Can't Buy Me Love 5)Hey Jude 6)Eleanor Rigby kay John naman, 7)Come Together  8)Jealous Guy 9)Across The Universe

Ang pinakamagandang pagka cover Jealous Guy.. sumunod na yong ibang naka bold letters (for me only)

Sa tingin ko naman, not necessarily "more creative" si John kaysa kay Paul. I think, mas eccentric lang. LOL

Actually, I see Paul as more fitting for the title "King of Pop." Characteristic kasi ng pop ang catchy, infectious melodies e. Parang kahit gaano ka-cheesy ang lyrics ni Paul, kapag nilagyan niya ng melodies niya, pakshet, ANG HUSAY. Case in point: SILLY LOVE SONGS. At ang basslines sa kantang ito, mismo!

If I am not mistaken, Lennon's Help was originally meant to be slow. His Revolution came out in the White Album as slow. But Paul insisted to apply a faster tempo for these songs. At swak nga talaga ang mabilis. For me, of course.

Still, I will always be a Lennon fan. And George next.  :lol:

Re: The End

In his interview with the RStone Mag after the Beatles 'break up', John said that the order of guitar solo on the said song was Paul, George and him. He even complained that his could hardly be heard. If you are familiar with the Beatles sound, it is not so hard to identify who's who on that song. George's part was most prominent as evidenced by his (more) lyrical solo and sound. This is not to underestimate the other two guys, as they themselves were multi-musicians. Paul could have been a better lead guitarist had he been given the chance. Or, George and John could have been better bassist or a drummer. But, as John would put it, the deadlines made it hard for them to 'specialize'. Anyway, he was not interested in getting technical about his guitar playing. To him it's enough that he could play (even preferred himself than George). He would not improve, he admitted.



Each time Paul plays live with this song, he always play the licks he did on the classic The End song of Abbey Road Album. So its easy to identify it much more because he takes the opening portion of the guitar duel

   c. The Ballad of John & Yoko ( Drums)
   d. I will (actually, what was released was the version where he used his voice to  mimic the bass lines)
   e. The end (He traded licks with George & John)

I am not really sure if he asked forgiveness but he publicly admitted that what he said was a tad off the cuff.
He was interviewed in England shortly before the Beatles took a 3 month break in 1966 saying that he never meant to say anything blasphemous.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kZ6NL3iNNMs (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kZ6NL3iNNMs)

Really what John was trying to say is that the people of that day are already worshipping the Beatles more than they do God. People are not very good at capturing British Irony humour and so was this backlash.

You know the people of the south, they take everything too literally and don't know how to read between the lines.

add ko na din po bassline ni paul sa "dear prudence". speaking of bass playing, eto po uli from wikipedia....."Spector claimed that he was forced into remixing "The Long and Winding Road", because of the poor quality of Lennon's bass playing. While the poor quality of the bass playing has been noted by other sources (in his book Revolution in the Head, a track-by-track analysis of the Beatles' records, Ian MacDonald described it as "atrocious" to the point of sabotage[8]), its basis as the full-scale re-working of the track by Spector has been questioned. McCartney has argued that Spector could have merely edited out the relevant mistakes and rerecorded them, a technique Spector used elsewhere on the album. Specifically, it would have been a simple matter of having McCartney overdub a more appropriate bass part to replace the Lennon bass line that was judged to be inadequate."

Precisely. We know John made a lot of enemies and critics. But if there is one thing he does not do is to lambast each other's faith.

That quote about we are more popular than Jesus is SOOOO out of context.

When he said that Christianity will shrink and go, he don't mean literally. What he was saying is that people are too much in to Beatles they are now being worshipped like God and John definitely doesn't agree with that idea.

Yes he is too opinionated. But he knows how to respect!

Fender Bass VI - it is more of a baritone guitar only it is tuned standard an octave lower like a bass guitar.

I like this instrument for a lot of uses. Not only as an alternate bass for guitarist but also for those dark textures. Perfect example here are records of The Cure and occasionally New Order.

John’s "Julia," which appeared on the Beatles White Album  and a song dedicated to his late mother Julia, and wife Yoko, was the only Beatle song wherein he played alone, without assistance from the rest of the group.

Paul McCartney had done the same many times. In "Yesterday," string instrumentalists helped him record what would be hailed as the most covered song of all time.

Music did a lot more to give awareness to people about the world's problems rather than direct political action which leads to more political problems.

Title: Re: anything about the Beatles ...
Post by: slowhandpal on April 21, 2010, 05:00:06 AM
Thanks bro. it's William Shears Campbell

The ‘clues’ were used to suggest the story for how McCartney had supposedly died: three years previously, on 9 November 1966, McCartney, while working on the Sgt. Pepper album, stormed out of a recording session after an argument with his fellow band-members and drove off in his car which he subsequently crashed, and died.The story was pieced together from the lyrics of multiple Beatles songs:

"He didn't notice that the lights had changed" ("A Day in the Life"), he crashed into a lamp-post (a car crash sound is heard in "Revolution 9") and was pronounced dead on a "Wednesday morning at 5 o'clock as the day begins" ("She's Leaving Home"). News of the tragedy was withheld: "Wednesday morning papers didn't come" ("Lady Madonna") and a funeral was held (inferred from the Abbey Road album cover).

According to the story, McCartney's place in The Beatles (as well as his private and social life) had then been taken by ‘William Shears Campbell’ (or someone with a name similar to the "Billy Shears" character in the Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club album), who had won a McCartney look-alike contest.

Found this interesting piece of interview of Graham Coxon, one of my guitar gods. All this time, akala ko hindi siya Beatle fan. lol

"I do like jazzy chords and 7ths," he says. "And we wanted to use chords 'properly' if you know what I mean. The Beatles always used chords really nicely: they'd use 7ths correctly. There's such a lot you can tug out of a melody if the chord underneath is right, I think. I'll mess around with tunings; DADGAD, I'll dabble with.

"I got a Les Paul and Marshalls early on in Blur because I was playing things off [The Beatles'] Abbey Road all the time," he recalls. "The most beautiful, warm tone ever is when I Want You (She's So Heavy) goes into that slinky rhythm and there's a guitar solo/vocal line... it's one of my favourite bits of music ever - incredible, beautiful. I based my whole sound on that for years.

Anyone here who know muich about Bas Muys? I think they're Bootleg but each time I listen to them, they sounded very much like the Beatles if indeed they're not.

@ ninejuicyjulius

Nice info. I was even too surprised to believe when Keith Moon (The Who) said he's favorite drummer is Ringo. :wink: They're just so amazing. They shaped the music of generations later

Bas Muys is a singer from The Netherlands. His voice sounds so uncannily like John Lennon. He recorded some albums in the 70s as a solo act (he once released an album that contains Beatles compositions not recorded by them - i.e. Bad To Me by Billy J. Kramer with the Dakotas, A World Without Love by Peter & Gordon, etc..) and as the lead singer by the pop band Smyle (not to be confused with Smile - the band that came to be known as Queen in 1970).

In 1980, Jaap Eggermont, formerly of Golden Earring, heard a medley of Beatles tunes over an incessant disco drum beat. He also noticed that the medley has other songs preceding the Beatles tunes and heard Venus by Shocking Blue. He told his friend Willem Van Kooten to check the medley out and realized they did not give permission to the DJs who did the medley (Van Kooten owns the publushing and copyright to Venus). Realizing that it is a bootleg, they traced the origins of that Dub record and found out that it originated in Canada.

Because the medley is a hit in discos all around Holland, they decided to take matters into their own hands and do a legalized version of that same medley. Funny if you analyze now, they could have just sued the Canadian DJs and get away with a substantial amount - they did this all because of Venus. In all intents and purposes, Willem Van Kooten did a "bootleg of a bootleg". In order to make this a reality, he consulted again with Jaap Eggermont. Eggermont then contacted various session musicians in Holland to replicate the medley and make the contents sound as authentic as possible. To this he enlisted the following vocalist for the Beatles medley:

1. Paul McCartney - Hans Vermuelen
2. George Harrison - Okkie Huysdens
3. John Lennon - Bas Muys

It was released by CNR Records in Holland late 1980. And it was an instant smash. It was regarded as one of the first disco records to be a certified worldwide smash after the Disco Backlash in late 1979 (triggered by The Knack's My Sharona and the onslaught of New Wave).

Came 1981 Atlantic Records released the medley in the US in its truncated version (only the first quarter of the medley was issued on the 7" version - so it contains No Reply to You're Going To Lose That Girl). Because of legalities encountered by Atlantic Records, they were forced to title the medley after ALL THE SONGS CONTAINED IN IT. They then released it on their minor label Radio Records. The medley likewise became a smash therefore it owns the record of having the longest-titled number one single. The other parts of the medley was issued on another single but did not chart as well as the first one.

Now what am I talking about? This medley is so influential that it started a Medley Craze in the early 80s. Bands like the Beach Boys, The Carpenters, The Bee Gees, The Dave Clark Five, The Rolling Stones were all given a medley of their own hits done by session musicians and tribute bands. Even the Beatles did a medley themselves - albeit through the splicing of their own recordings by EMI engineers. Even then USSR permitted the official release of this medley - the very first time the Russian masses heard the music of the Beatles without the watchful eye of the KGB. Until this time, Beatles records are only sold on the Black Market in USSR and the cost of an LP is worth 2months salary of a common Russian worker.

Even better, to capitalize on the craze this medley brought about, several 60s bands reunited to do shows and festivals - the revival craze was on! It was called revival in the 80s, retro in the 90s.

So really what is this? THE STARS ON 45 BEATLES MEDLEY!

The irony of this all is that since the phrase Stars On 45 was used only as a way to call this act, Jaap Eggermont forgot to copyright the phrase and therefore hundreds of bogus "stars on 45" medleys were issued everywhere in the 90s.

Sadly, the whole 15 medley has yet to be reissued on cd except by bootleggers.

Nobody I Know - Peter & Gordon
Bad To Me - Billy J. Kramer with the Dakotas
I'll Keep You Satisfied - Billy J. Kramer with the Dakotas
From A Window - Billy J. Kramer with the Dakotas
Like Dreamers Do - The Applejacks
I Don't Want To See You Again - Peter & Gordon

It is interesting to note the Billy J. Kramer recordings of these tunes. Until very very recently, all Billy J. Kramer with the Dakotas recordings are only released in mono. Until in the 90s, Ron Furmanek - one of the gurus in remixing and remastering 60s recordings discovered the multitracks missplaced in the EMI vault. Ron Furmanek then remixed and remastered the tapes and for the first time, the Billy J. Kramer recordings were heard in true stereo! This cd is already out of print so the ones you will see on the market are mono again.

The title of the cd is EMI Legends Rock 'n' Roll Seris - The Definitive Collection - Billy J. Kramer & The Dakotas.

A very obvious error to the people who have an eagle eye though. This group was always called Billy J. Kramer with the Dakotas and NOT Billy J. Kramer & The Dakotas!

I am lucky to have the biggest hits of that group in true stereo on my mp3 player. They sound pretty good actually!

Yes there was!


It's called the Beatles Movie Medley. It comprises of songs all taken from their movies. It was released as a single to accompany the compilation album released in 1982 - Reel Music. This compilation has something unique in store for hardcore Beatles fans:

    * The first US release of the British stereo mix of "I Am The Walrus". Previous American releases of the song had the intro edited like the mono mix;
    * The official American debut of the songs "A Hard Day's Night" and "Ticket To Ride" in true stereo;
    * A unique stereo edit of "I Should Have Known Better", with the harmonica error in the intro fixed. This version never appeared on any other record.

Would you know why the Beatles shifted their amps from Vox to Fender? Or did they?

When did the Beatles stop using their Ricks? or, when was the last time you saw them using that brand? esp. John and George.

1. The endorsement of the Beatles using vox amplifiers were more of a business agreement between Brian Epstein and Reg Clark, a sales manager of one of Vox's retailers rather than the demand of the Beatles themselves. The agreement is as long as Brian Epstein is the band's manager, they would exclusivley use vox amplifiers everytime they make a public appearance. Although they were known to use the occasional Selmer amps on recordings. That's the reason almost every year Vox amps produce a new model that has higher wattage in order to compete with the screaming girls as they increase in number every year. Keep in mind the following: a) High powered P.A. Systems were not invented yet and therefore the only signal coming out of the low powered PA systems were vocals only, the amp has to do a lot of hardwork then not only producing tones but making sure that the amp projects the sound to the audience as loud as possible. b)Foldback monitors are not invented yet, it is therefore a constant struggle for the Beatles to hear themselves while performing. c) The Beatles were the first rock band to play football and baseball stadia. They invented "Arena Rock" hence the need for high powered guitar amps. When Epstein died, the Beatles were free to use any amps as they wish. Although VOX was still prominent in recordings, they use Fender amps not long after for TV appearances and recordings.
It has to be said that during the early 60s, Fender products are banned in the UK due to their economic situation. Almost all UK bands are lusting after Fender products. UK distribution for Fender only started in the mid-60s - Dallas Arbiter being the distributor. But by the time this happened, Epstein already have a deal with VOX (the deal was signed in early 1963).

2. John was the first one to use a Rickenbacker, a 1958 Capri325 which he bought in Hamburg, Germany in 1960. It was heavily modified in the succeeding years most obvious was the change from natural to black finish, next is the removal of the Kaufman Vibrola system to a Bigsby system for solidbody electric guitar. This Rickenbacker was retired shortly after the Beatles first US visit with their first Ed Sullivan show being one of its final appearances. This guitar was in semi retirement until 1972 when John had it overhauled. The report that it was stolen after the first US tour was not true. It was simply because that is was so worn by that time that he already finds it unreliable. What was stolen from him (and the only Beatle instrument that was ever stolen.) was the Gibson J160E. Although he bought another one of that soon after.

George was the next one to get a Rickenbacker. He bought one in Vermont, Illinois in September 1963 while the Beatles were in their very rare break - he, with his brother Peter, were visiting their older sister (Louise) who married an American and while the Beatles was still very much unknown anywhere in the US. The model he bought was a Jetglo425 (it is actually a 420 - models ending with a 5 means the guitar has a tremolo system, George's guitar has a stamping error in the Rickenbacker factory. It had no tremolo but was still given a 425 model name). It never became his main guitar but used it on many occasions most commonly on TV appearances. It was on February 8, 1964 that Rickenbacker gave its greatest contribution to rock history - all the time George was suffering from a FLU! While the other Beatles were having a pictorial at the Central Park in New York, George was talking to some people at Rickenbacker about a new instrument they just designed and to be given to George as a free gift. George got this guitar shortly after the Ed Sullivan Show - the now legendary Rickenbacker 360/12. The sound of this instrument became so influential that a genre was born out of this sound - Folk Rock! Somewhere in L.A., a folk musician who was just beginning to play rock saw the first Beatles movie - A Hard Day's Night - and noticed George Harrison's Rickanbacker 360/12 in one of the scenes. He was so knocked out by the sound, he bought one the following day and folk rock was born. This person was Roger McGuinn of The Byrds.

Paul McCartney's first personal encounter with the Rickenbacker came on their second US tour also in 1964. When they were playing their first gig in the Hollywood Bowl. Rickenbacker presented him with the 4001 bass. Unfortunately Paul refused the instrument for the following reasons: a) Rickenbacker does not know that Paul was a lefty and therefore presented him a right handed bass. b) The Hofner violin bass (Paul actually had two of it, one has a logo that is written vertically on the headstock that he sold for almost a pauper's price the day Apple Corps went broke in 1969. The other one with the horizontal logo is still on active use by Paul) is so lightweight Paul cannot imagine playing the very heavy Rick. and (this is the clincher!) c) Rickenbacker was asking Paul for a nominal fee (reportedly on 25% of the usual retail price) - but Paul wanted it for free! This came to fruition a year later, also on their Hollywood Bowl concert. It was first used on the song "Think For Yourself" on Rubber Soul and then again on "Paperback Writer" and "Rain". It was also used extensively on their 1967-1968 recording sessions.

If analyzing from these facts, we can say John Lennon stopped using Rickenbacker after the first US tour, George stopped using them after their last concert and Paul continued to use Rickenbacker well after the Beatles. Paul's main bass during Wings era was the Rickenbacker although still using the Hofner occasionally.

It's very true. I'm not sure though if it was George Martin or Brian Epstein who said The Beatles cannot hear well actually what they are singing because there was no fold back speakers. :-o

Bryan, thanks for the history on Beatles gears.

On Gibson J160e, one reason why the Beatles would use the said guitar was because they were fans of the Everly Brothers.
When plugged, the guitar actually had an electric sound comapred to other acoustics. It was how John would recall of his guitar choice.

I forgot to discuss about the Beatles use of Martin guitars, I reckon I share it here.
The Beatles were pretty much familiar with Martin guitars as early as 1961 - the first time they saw one - in Hamburg. Tony Sheridan owns a Martin D28.

Although it would be 1967 were any Beatles got his hand on a Martin. John Lennon bought his very own D28 in mid 1967. Paul McCartney got one not long after. It was used on the Magical Mystery tour sessions.

Recently, I discovered another instrument stolen from the Beatles - George's second copy of the Rickenbacker 360-12. Boy I'm beginning to think there are more stolen Beatles gear than the reported stolen Gibson 160E.

Stuart Sutcliffe unfortunately isn't a bass player. Being John's close friend, he's in the band anyway. George says, "a bad bass player is better than no bass player. Beggars can't be choosers."

Yup he turns his back on the audience because he really plays poorly. At least well below Paul's ability.

When John first heard the Clash, he thought he was like them. He even claimed that he (and Yoko) were the original punks.

Some music critics would say that Strummer and Jones partnership was like of Lennon-McCartney. "London Calling" was an attestation to that. It's not a Sgt. Pepper's or Revolver, but it proved that it could be an important album in the rock era.

Too bad, Lennon was not able to wait for Oasis. Of course, there was no songwriting partnership among Oasis. Mostly, it was Noel G.'s, who was not ashamed to admit how badly he wanted to sound like the Beatles...how he imagined singing "across the universe" only with his acoustic guitar. George Martin was even quoted saying that Noel G. is one of the best songwriters of his generation.

Also, Bono (and Edge) of U2. In 1980, they were just starting as a band. Naturally, John would not notice them. His playboy interview came in 1980 after a 5 year absence from the music scene. Bono would recall how "Imagine" really hit him. Probably, it was the inspiration for coming up with songs like "I Still Haven't Found.." and "One."

How about K. Cobain, a self-confessed Beatles fanatic? Had John lived, do you think he would have noticed him? Yup. Although he had stopped being a fan, he listened a lot and followed the rock (n roll) trend.

There is a certain amount of hippocrisy in Bono's professed love for classic rock. When U2 was starting out, they claim that their music is not influenced by anyone except the Ramones, The Sex Pistols and their contemporaries. Keith Richards even scolded them because the band cannot jam any classic tune. In fact they were a bit curious as to WHO KEITH RICHARDS IS! That was in 1984 while they were about to record The Unforgettable Fire.

The Clash on the other hand have nothing but reverence to the Classics although they just hate what it became during the mid70s. Classic rockers were all rich and bloated. The Clash says these guys forgot the real reason the rockers are here - to make music not to get rich and fat.

@ Bryan was it Stu whom John enlisted allegedly just because he owns a Radio Phono?
Title: Re: anything about the Beatles ...
Post by: burnsbhm on May 03, 2010, 01:14:53 AM
John had known Stu since the days at the Liverpool College of Art. They are schoolmates and lived on the same apartment. John was totally knocked out by Stu's talent in the visual arts.

I don't recall of any account that Stu was hired because he owned a radio phono - he may have one but that could not be the basis for him to be with then The Silver Beetles. Stu was more like John's security blanket. Much like Ray Tabano to Steven Tyler during the early days of Aerosmith.

Although Stu - compared to John, Paul and George was a very poor musician, he was by no means extremely inferior. He sang in church choirs, learned to play the bugle and know some chords on the guitar when he was a boy. When he sold one of his paintings, he was egged on by John and Paul to buy a Hofner President bass.

Despite his below par musicianship, he was no means useless to the band. Before the band know of any formal business logistics, he used to be the band's booking agent. And used to rehearse on his Gambier Terrace.

After the breakup George was the first one to release a multi volume album in All Things Must Pass. The Album title was rehearsed during the Let It Be sessions.

I believe, George might have written a lot for the Beatles, but he was only given a slot for a song or two in any Beatles album.

Agree on this one. Although at first, George didn't write much. He started writing a lot around the Sgt. Pepper days. All Things Must Pass is a documentation of his huge backlog of songs.

One interesting song of George that was never released until the demo version appeared on Anthology 1 is "You Know What To Do." It could have been a great addition to Beatles For Sale.

and if I may add.. The Legendary Concert for Bangla Desh was the first All Star Rock Concert for a cause by George Harrison & Friends. Is it true that before the concert,there were rumours that the Beatles will reunite because Paul was sent invitation to play by George?

Although George sent an invitation, Paul flatly refused to go to the event because the issues about the Beatles disbanding was very hot at that time. George invited John to go on the premise that he goes there - ALONE, without Yoko. John agreed but Yoko argued with John about it. And two days before the event he left New York because of Yoko's naggings. Ringo was there without a hitch.

Unfortunately, none of my resources ever mentioned the rest of the Beatles in Concerts for Kampuchea. Maybe others have more deep references for this.

What I can only tell is that this was Wings last concert and its organization was assisted by the U.N.

The Concert for Bangla Desh by George Harrison & Friends has only one band in Bad Finger. The rest were solo artists like Jesse Ed Davis, Eric Clapton, Bob Dylan, Leon Russel, Ringo Star, Billy Preston, Jim Keltner

And The Concert for the People of Kampuchea were filled with Bands like The Wings, The Who, Pretenders, The Clash; The Queen, Elvis Costello,The Specials..

The Concerts (yes it is CONCERTS - 4 day event) For The People Of Kampuchea (then and now Cambodia) started in Boxing Day - December 26 and ended in December 29. It is interesting to note that only Queen played on the 26th (I mean with all the bands who committed to play, who could dare share the stage with Queen?)
It is also the heyday of punk and new wave to the Clash and the Pretenders (then an upcoming band) were given their early mainstream exposure. Other punk and new wave bands to play were Elvis Costello and The Attractions and The Specials.

The last day of the event was headlined by Wings and Rockestra - an impromptu supergroup led by Paul McCartney.

I'm afraid not. Robbie McIntosh was the replacement for the Pretender's original guitarist James Honeyman Scott. Robbie McIntosh joined The Pretenders around 1983 and made his debut appearance on the album Learning To Crawl (this is my favorite Pretenders album).

Incidentally, there is another Robbie McIntosh. He was the drummer for the Scottish Soul/Funk/R&B band Average White Band. He died shortly after the release of their 2nd album AWB that contains the classic "Pick Up The Pieces" and their outstanding cover of "Work To Do" by the Isley Brothers.

To Playamoth - Yup, The Specials were a Ska band. Although most Ska Bands originating in the UK were generally categorized in the Punk and New Wave bandwagon as most of it's practitioners (2Tone Ska to be exact) were treading the boards during Punk's heyday. Also, Punk and New Wave's desire for nostalgia paved the way to revivals of different genres (neo-Rockabilly like the Stray Cats, 2Tone Ska like the Specials). This sub genre of ska was called 2Tone ska because most of the bands of this style have or had a record deal with 2Tone Records.

I believe, George might have written a lot for the Beatles, but he was only given a slot for a song or two in any Beatles album.

If you notice George's material, they are not for the Beatles. This goes the same for John and Paul (and even Ringo) You can't expect Beatles to record stuff like "Mother" or Paul's "Maybe I'm Amazed" despite a good guitar solo in the middle, or Ringo's "Photograph" which featured George. Perhaps the songs they wanted to appear on the Beatles albums were just good for sessions but not for recording. For reference, one can listen to the Anthology albums. The standards for the Beatles are different. The break up just liberted the individual Beatles to pursue what they wanted. It was less complicated. Nobody had to tell them what to do because they were now free.

John said that it was very hard for George to compete with the Lennon-McCartney tandem. He pitied the latter for that. He couldn't help him much because he was also having a hard time dealing with Paul. He didn't want to add his burden by being there for George.

Anyway, it was just a point in time that they had to deal with that. More than 20 years later, Paul, George and Ringo got back to the studio to record some stuff left by John.

Perhaps it is also the reason why George was always there for Ringo who was struggling to write songs then. George mentioned he's got to write good songs to be at par( not necessarily equal) with John & Paul.

Title: Re: anything about the Beatles ...
Post by: slowhandpal on May 18, 2010, 06:24:04 AM
Few of the many reasons why I love George Harrison too

I His voice

He’s got only one vocal style. He cannot sing like John & Paul who’s got many ways to sing. But he just sang very well in Something, My Sweet lord & While my guitar gently weeps. For me no one can sing those songs  better than him. I’ve heard a lot of cover versions by Paul Gilbert, John Mayer, Bruce Springsteen, Tom Petty, Eric Clapton, Billy Preston, Bob Dylan, Frank Sinatra, Elvis Presley et al.. but for me George just sang it the way it should be.

II His unselfish attitude

1. He staged the Legendary Concert for Bangla Desh. The First All Star Concert for a cause
2. He let friends do his part as lead guitarist. Paul played lead guitar in Taxman, Eric in While my guitar     gently weeps & John in For you blue.
3. He was always with Ringo when Ringo struggles to write, songs like It don’t come easy, Octopus garden, Me and you(babe), Photographs

III Guitar playing skills( best displayed on these songs)

1.   This guitar can’t keep on crying (original & new version, slide & not)
2.   Day after day (Bad Finger)
3.   Moment in Paradise (Electric Light Orchestra Zoom album)
4.   The Bluest blues ( live with Albert Lee)
5.   Octopus garden (even the demo version is nice)
6.   The end (with Paul & John)
7.   In my life (you cannot remove the intro here, simple but there can be no substitute)
8.   And I love her (Classical guitar for the intro)
9.   And your bird can sing ( Joe Walsh praised George & wonder where did he get the idea)
10.   Let it be (two versions were released)
11.   Sun King/ Mean Mr. Mustard/ Polytene Pam/ ..bathroom window
12.   I’ll follow the sun ( pure clean tone)
13.   Words of love(paying homage to Buddy Holly with nice ad lib)
14.   Hey bulldog (used SG or this song and gave the axe to his best friend Eric)
15.   Drive my car (wasn’t sure if he used slide or not)
16.   Your love ( with Carl Perkins, Rockabilly))
17.   Here comes the sun (nice acoustic rendition, Beatles version & with Paul Simon)
18.   Back in the USSR
19.   I'm only sleeping( guitar solo played backwards)
20.   Real love (who would not love the guitar works here)
21.   Free as a bird (Paul gave good words to George for the slide work here)
22.   Nowhere man( the first song I’ve heard where harmonic was used in the guitar solo part)
23.   Cheer down
24.   Johnny be good ( with Deep Purple, live)
25.    While my guitar gently weeps on the second guitar solo part with Eric Clapton( for many times, but live in Japan is the best version for me), with Gary Moore ( Live in London)

IV song writing

1.   Something
2.   While my guitar gently weeps
3.   Old brown shoe
4.   Here comes the sun
5.   This guitar can’t keep on crying
6.   You know what to do
7.   Don’t let me wait too long

Mirror mirror on the wall, who's the richest of the four? :wink:

Sir Paul McCartney is on the top of the charts -- the money charts, that is -- in the category of rich rock 'n' rollers, according to the annual list of the world's richest individuals published today in the Sunday Times. The Times says McCartney's wealth is estimated at £475 million ($730 million), placing him at fifth overall on the complete 2010 Rich List, according to NME.com.

McCartney is directly followed by Simon Fuller (£350 million), Sir Mick Jagger (£190 million), Sir Elton John (£185 million), Sting (£180 million), Keith Richards (£175 million), Simon Cowell (£165 million) and Olivia and Dhani Harrison (£160 million). Ringo Starr placed 15th with £140 million.

At the top of the rich music makers list is Edgar Bronfman and family (£1,640 million). Edgar Bronfman Jr. is chairman and CEO of Warner Music Group.

On the 2009 Rich List, McCartney was #120, up from #158 the previous year with an estimated wealth of £440m (roughly $676.4 million), down £60m (roughly $92.2 million) from the previous year.

Years ago, Forbes mag published that Paul McCartney was already worth $4B. Not surprising. Numerous hit records, albums, concerts and investments including performing and non performing assets.

John's L. investments, other than music, were livestock and real estate. This according to "The Love You Make." There were rumours that his estate had gone close to $100M later after his death.

In the mid 90s, Rolling Stones signed a $100M US tour contract. I'm sure that in the year 2000 their US tours may have been worth more.

I've seen some clips nung mga recent concerts nya, di pa rin nagdedeteriorate yung boses  :-D

BTW, alam nyo yung mga kanta nya na ka-duet nya si Michael Jackson (Say, say, say) & Stevie Wonder (Ebony & Ivory), I've read somewhere na meron din syang duet with Kenny Rogers na hindi nirelease (or maybe rumor lang yun.).

This could be very possible because Kenny Rogers released an album in 1981 called "Share Your Love" produced by Lionel Richie. One of Kenny Roger's earliest country/pop crossover album. One of the tracks on that album is called "Going Back To Alabama" which Michael Jackson did background vocals. they could have done a track where they did a duet. We don't know if there are alternate or throwaway tracks during that session but we could not rule out the possibility of a duet.

"The Man" is taken from Paul McCartney's 1983 album "Pipes Of Piece". Unusual for McCartney is that this is one of his American sounding albums. Steve Gadd played on some tracks and did an instrumental collaboration with Stanley Clarke with the track "Hey Hey".

If it's between the four guys then Steve Lukather only appeared in Give my regards to Broadstreet, with his bandmate Jeff Porcaro. I think Eric Stewart also played guitar with Dave Edmunds on the film.

How about Steve Miller?

Steve Miller and Paul McCartney have associations as early as 1969 on the Steve Miller Band's album "Brave New World". Paul played bass, drums and backing vocals on the tracks "Celebration Song" and "My Dark Hour".

Steve Miller performed three tracks on Flaming Pie "If You Wanna", "Young Boy" and "Used To Be Bad". Steve co-wrote the last mentioned track.

McCartney sings 'Michelle' — to a famous Michelle
 

 
WASHINGTON – If the first British invasion of the White House ended with the house afire, the latest had Barack and Michelle Obama and their kids rocking out in their seats Wednesday night at a tribute concert for former Beatle Paul McCartney.

The setting was the ornate East Room, chandeliers overhead, Georgeand Martha Washington portraits on the walls and an all-star lineup of performers cranking out some of McCartney's greatest hits.

Stevie Wonder had the Obamas clapping to "We Can Work It Out." The Jonas Brothers did "Baby You Can Drive My Car." Corinne Bailey Rae slowed things down with "Blackbird." And Faith Hill stroked "Long and Winding Road."

It was McCartney himself who brought down the house by belting out "Michelle," aiming his words straight at a first lady named Michelle.

He said he'd been "itching" to perform it at the White House, and asked the president's forgiveness in advance. The first lady was soon mouthing the words along with McCartney and the president was swaying in his seat.

After serenading the first lady with the lyrics "I love you, I love you, I love you," McCartney joked that he just might be the "first guy ever to be punched out by a president."


The whole night was built around Obama's presentation to McCartney of the Gershwin Prize for Popular Song, awarded by the Library of Congress.

McCartney said it was a moment like no other.
"I don't think there could be anything more special than to play here," the Englishman said.
And then he volunteered to make it a regular gig.
"Lunchtimes, we could come around," he offered. "We're cheap."

McCartney, 67, left no question about how he felt about Obama, telling the president that in tough times, "You have billions of us who are rooting for you and we know you are going to come through."

Later, after the TV cameras had left, he expressed appreciation for the Library of Congress and added a zinger: "After the last eight years, it's great to have a president who knows what a library is."

Obama hailed McCartney's songs as a huge part of American culture, telling the singer-songwriter, "That's right, we stole you, Sir Paul."

The Beatles might not have been the first rock group, Obama said, but "they blew the walls down for everyone else."
"They helped to lay the soundtrack for an entire generation," the president said.
McCartney closed out the concert with a string of hits that had the whole audience singing along to "Hey Jude."

By the end, Obama and his family were on stage singing along with the "nah, nah, hey Jude."
Comedian Jerry Seinfeld supplied the concert with its comic relief. He had lots of compliments for McCartney and one complaint — he couldn't quite figure some of McCartney's lyrics.
Such as: "She was just 17. You know what I mean."

Seinfeld: "I'm not sure I do know what you mean, Sir Paul. I think I know what you mean. And I think there's a law enforcement agency in a couple of states that might want to ask you a few questions."

Among others performing were Elvis Costello, Emmylou Harris, Herbie Hancock, White Stripes singer andguitarist Jack White, Lang Lang and Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl.

The Gershwin prize is named for the songwriting brothers George and Ira Gershwin, whose collections are housed at the library. Previous recipients of the Gershwin award are Wonder and Paul Simon.

Those not lucky enough to snag tickets to the East Room gig can catch the concert July 28, when it's televised on PBS' "In Performance at the White House."

Ok, I'll use the real Quarrymen photo as reference from left to right
1. Eric Griffiths - Guitar
2. Colin Hanton - Drums
3. Rod Davis - Banjo
4. John Lennon - Guitar
5. Pete Shotton - Washboard (what you thought was the lyre is actually a washboard - literally a devise use to wash clothes - pangkusot ng damit)
6. Len Garry - One String tea chest bass - similar to the one on the cover of CCR's album Willie And The Poor Boys. Again, this device is made by putting a hole in the middle of a tea chest, installing a broom handle on a side of the box, and inserting a string in the hole and attaching that to the upper end of the broom handle.

A tea chest is a large wooden box to store tea leaves while being shipped to packaging plants.

It is also worth mentioning that the Quarrymen have a keyboardist named John Duff Lowe. Lowe can be heard on the very very first recording of the Quarrymen/Johnny And The Moondogs/The Beatles - "That'll Be The Day" and "In Spite Of All The Danger" - the only Lennon-Harrison collaboration.

Most welcome Slowhandpal. It has to be said that the remaining members of the Quarrymen are alive and well and STILL MAKING MUSIC! They recently released a cd made of covers of 50s rock standards. All of them repertoire of the band back in the day.

They have an official website. You can easily google it.

Also, they have lots of youtube videos. Check them out!

Thanks a lot bro. You've been digging gold lately :wink:

The tape also reveals John Lennon and Paul McCartney hinting at the band’s break up.

John Lennon is heard to say: “We’re obviously not going to go around holding hands forever.”
While Paul McCartney adds: “It would be a bit, you know, embarrassing at 35.”

Post by: slowhandpal on June 15, 2010, 06:52:35 AM
I must complete the reasons what I like with individual Beatles before I go.

Ringo!

Just like George Harrison, he only has one way of singing unlike the more talented John & Paul but he also did sing songs only fitted for him. George even attempted to sing the hit " It don't come easy " but Ringo does it better. IMHO nobody does it better than him.

I Drumming skills are best displayed on these songs.

a. A Day In a Life
b. Rain
c. Golden Slumbers/ Carry That Weight/ The End
d. Sun King/ Mean Mr. Mustard
e. Octopus's Garden
f. Come Together
g. Please Please Me
h. Strawberry Fields Forever
i. Everybody's Got something To Hide
j. Drumming My Madness
k. In A Heartbeat
l. Weight Of The World
m. It Don't Come Easy
n. I saw Her standing There
o. Wanderlust
p. Not Such A Bad Boy
q. So Bad.
r. Twist And Shout
s. You've Got The Nice Way

II Character/ Attitude

a. I guess he's the most friendly among the four.
b. After the break up, he's the only one who played for the other Beatles.
c. Just Like George he struggled to write songs too inspite of the fact that John & Paul are like giants in their midst
d. Perhaps because of his friendly attitude, he appeared in many performances of other bands and solo performers like Eric Clapton, Phil Collins, The Band, The Who, Gary Moore, Carl Perkins..

III For his concept of touring with his All Starr Band featuring big names in the Music Industry like:

1. Jack Bruce (Cream)
2. Peter Frampton (Humble Pie)
3. Joe Walsh (Eagles)
4. Roger Hudgson (Supretrammp)
5. John Entwishle (The Who)
6. Shella E
7. John Waite (Bad English)
8. Billy Squire
9. Levon Helm (The Band)
10. Zakk Starkey (The Who)
11. Eric Carmen (Euclid Beach Band)
12. Randy Bachmann (The Guess Who)
13. Mark Rivera
14.  Mark Farner (Grand Funk Rail Road)
15. Ian Hunter
16. Greg Lake (Emerson, Lake & Palmer)
17. Dave Edmunds
18. Timothy B. Schmit (Eagles)
19. Burton Cummings ( The Guess Who)
20. Nils Lofgren
21. Todd Rundgren
22.Billy Preston
23. Felix Cavallier(?)
24. Paul Carrack (?)
25. Gary Broker (Procol Harum)
26. Colin Hay (Men at Work)
27. Edgar Winter
28. Hamish Stuart
29. Richard Marx
30. Rod Ardent (Zombies)
31. Howard Jones
32. Rick Danko (The Band)

IV Song Writing/ Talent

1. Octopus's Garden
2. Don't Pass Me By
3. It Don't Come Easy( With George)
4. Never without You
5. English Garden (He played all the instruments for this song)
6. What Goes On (With John & Paul as co writers, He played Hammond Organ?)
7. Photographs (with George)
8. Mr. Moonlight (Played guitar)

My Favorite Ringo Albums are:
1. Ringo (Self Titled)
2. Time Takes Time
3. VH1 Story Tellers
4. All Starr Band Albums
5. Liverpool 8

The Nurk Twins were simply John and Paul performing as a folk duo in 1960 during the Quarrymen/Silver Beatles downtime. Nothing much to investigate further but it only strengthened the bond between the two. It was during this period that they began seriously writing their own material.

Actually Nurk Twins is still used as an insider code to mean John and Paul especially as songwriters even when they were already superstars.

There were a lot of reasons Pete Best was fired from the Beatles. And the one you mentioned was one of them. He clearly was the ladies' man at that time - which definitely annoyed the other three. In fact after a while that Pete Best was their drummer, it was GEORGE who talked to Paul and John to fire Pete.

If you analyze the recordings of The Beatles with Pete Best on Anthology 1 and the Decca audition, Ringo is way way better than Pete. Their three recorded versions of "Love Me Do" with THREE DIFFERENT DRUMMERS is another interesting thing to analyze the ability of Pete. That is not to discredit anything from Pete, he is not a bad drummer, it's just that Ringo is a better drummer.

Also, Ringo bonded with the other three better than Pete. Somewhere around 1962, Pete started to miss Beatles gigs and Ringo was always the first call reliever. Even in Hamburg they used to hang around.

The three always say that Ringo was meant to be THE BEATLES drummer, and Pete is just a transition.

Was it George Harrison bro or George Martin?

I guess George Martin preferred Andy White to Ringo because Andy was a seasoned session drummer that time then.

I guess George Martin preferred Andy White to Ringo because Andy was a seasoned session drummer that time then.

It was George Harrison who talked to John and Paul to fire Pete. This was even before they secured their contract with Parlophone/EMI. Their last tour in Hamburg even before their EMI audition, this was already in the works.

George Martin's suggestion to replace Pete was only a nail in the coffin. On the band's EMI audition, they were about to fire Pete one way or the other.

Rock bands at that time were considered Rank Amateurs by the recording industry and taunted as incompetent musicians. It has to be said that majority of rock recordings at that time were still played by session musicians and rock bands have to play only on their live performances. A lot of major labels were even reluctant to sign rock bands. The last major company to sign a rock band was CBS (Columbia, Epic) -now known as Sony Music Entertainment since 1991 and merged with BMG in 2005- their first rock band signed to CBS was Paul Revere and the Raiders (a few months before the Byrds). Mitch Miller was the major force for CBS's refusal to sign a rock band. Mitch Miller was then an enemy of rock and roll.

Back to the Beatles. There are two very different versions why Andy White sat in with the Beatles for the recording of Love Me Do. One was that George Martin was not satisfied with Ringo's drumming and so he called Andy White to re-record Love Me Do. The other one (and this was the version most used by the Beatles) is that George Martin was not aware that they had replaced Pete Best and when it was Ringo's time to visit EMI Studios, Andy White was waiting for them precisely because George Martin was not pleased with Pete's drumming.

Now analyzing all the facts presented we now refer to another point of reference - the recording dates! Pete Best version was recorded June 6, 1962 (Steve Vai's second birthday!), Ringo's version was on September 4th and Andy White's version was on September 11th. These facts can be consulted on Mark Lewisohn's book The Beatles Recording Sessions.

The Question here is : who IS telling the truth? If facts that are documented are to be consulted (the recording sheets of EMI don't lie), we can then say that George Martin has the more credible explanation. Now I would not leave anything to suspicion here that the rest of the Beatles are trying to put up a false bravado on Ringo but the best possible reconciliatory action here is that Ringo and Andy's version were both given official EMI releases.

The Andy White version is the most common version we hear today. You can find that in the Please Please Me album and the red 1962-1966 compilation. In this September 11 version (39 years before the World Trade Center tragedy) Ringo was playing tambourine, George Martin felt sorry for Ringo (probably he felt it when Ringo projected his famous sullen frown).

The Ringo version is apparently the more popular version in UK. This was the version heard on the single release although later reissues of the single in UK was replaced by the Andy White version during the 70s. This Ringo version appeared in US for the first time on the US version of the album "Rarities" (also known for having the Butcher photo on the inside of the gatefold sleeve) and 8 years later on the Past Masters version - which by that time the whole world was able to hear the Ringo version for the first time especially people born in the 70s (like me).

If you guys want to hear the 3 Love Me Do versions with Pete Best, Andy White and Ringo, I suggest you buy the Anthology 1 and Past Masters volume 1 cds. To those who have the equipment and more spendable income, find the vinyl version of both titles (I am still looking for the vinyl version of Past Masters though I have the complete Anthology on vinyl).
Title: Re: anything about the Beatles ...
Post by: burnsbhm on June 23, 2010, 01:24:29 AM
The following Beatles recordings have NO true stereo versions:
1. Love Me Do (both the Andy White and Ringo Starr versions were recorded direct to 2-track tape)
2. P.S. I Love You
3. She Loves You
4. I'll Get You

up until these 4 songs, once they are released on records, the master tape was either reused or discarded. If one looks at the Please Please me album, the first two songs above were in their fake stereo mix. The master tape for them while the album is being prepared were already discarded. So since then the only master tape remaining in the EMI vaults where the fake stereo Andy White version. Subsequent reissues were prepared using pristine mint condition vinyl from private record collectors.

To date, there is an argument as to whether Sie Liebt Dich used the same backing track as the original She Loves You. The obvious argument and documentation is that the Beatles re-recorded the entire backing track in France for the German version. To a casual listener, this argument is very very believable. But there are some dedicated Beatles fans who dare to question the authenticity of this argument as someone was able to find the original backing track of the original recording of She Loves You on that very same French studio in which Sie Liebt Dich was recorded.

I cannot give any credence to the latter argument because I myself has not seen any apparent evidence proving it. If anyone can show the public the backing track or the two track master tape of She Loves You, they should have presented that to EMI as they were preparing for the 2009 remastered box set. Until now, the abovementioned 4 songs will forever remain in mono and fake stereo.

It was George Harrison who talked to John and Paul to fire Pete. This was even before they secured their contract with Parlophone/EMI. Their last tour in Hamburg even before their EMI audition, this was already in the works.

George Martin's suggestion to replace Pete was only a nail in the coffin. On the band's EMI audition, they were about to fire Pete one way or the other.

Rock bands at that time were considered Rank Amateurs by the recording industry and taunted as incompetent musicians. It has to be said that majority of rock recordings at that time were still played by session musicians and rock bands have to play only on their live performances. A lot of major labels were even reluctant to sign rock bands. The last major company to sign a rock band was CBS (Columbia, Epic) -now known as Sony Music Entertainment since 1991 and merged with BMG in 2005- their first rock band signed to CBS was Paul Revere and the Raiders (a few months before the Byrds). Mitch Miller was the major force for CBS's refusal to sign a rock band. Mitch Miller was then an enemy of rock and roll.

Back to the Beatles. There are two very different versions why Andy White sat in with the Beatles for the recording of Love Me Do. One was that George Martin was not satisfied with Ringo's drumming and so he called Andy White to re-record Love Me Do. The other one (and this was the version most used by the Beatles) is that George Martin was not aware that they had replaced Pete Best and when it was Ringo's time to visit EMI Studios, Andy White was waiting for them precisely because George Martin was not pleased with Pete's drumming.

Now analyzing all the facts presented we now refer to another point of reference - the recording dates! Pete Best version was recorded June 6, 1962 (Steve Vai's second birthday!), Ringo's version was on September 4th and Andy White's version was on September 12th. These facts can be consulted on Mark Lewisohn's book The Beatles Recording Sessions.

The Question here is : who IS telling the truth? If facts that are documented are to be consulted (the recording sheets of EMI don't lie), we can then say that George Martin has the more credible explanation. Now I would not leave anything to suspicion here that the rest of the Beatles are trying to put up a false bravado on Ringo but the best possible reconciliatory action here is that Ringo and Andy's version were both given official EMI releases.

The Andy White version is the most common version we hear today. You can find that in the Please Please Me album and the red 1962-1966 compilation. In this September 11 version (39 years before the World Trade Center tragedy) Ringo was playing tambourine, George Martin felt sorry for Ringo (probably he felt it when Ringo projected his famous sullen frown).

The Ringo version is apparently the more popular version in UK. This was the version heard on the single release although later reissues of the single in UK was replaced by the Andy White version during the 70s. This Ringo version appeared in US for the first time on the US version of the album "Rarities" (also known for having the Butcher photo on the inside of the gatefold sleeve) and 8 years later on the Past Masters version - which by that time the whole world was able to hear the Ringo version for the first time especially people born in the 70s (like me).

If you guys want to hear the 3 Love Me Do versions with Pete Best, Andy White and Ringo, I suggest you buy the Anthology 1 and Past Masters volume 1 cds. To those who have the equipment and more spendable income, find the vinyl version of both titles (I am still looking for the vinyl version of Past Masters though I have the complete Anthology on vinyl).

Too bad for Pete.. parang excess baggage na kasi sya. Ringo is better than best :wink: After firing him, there wasn't too much news about Peter Best anymore..

It was very difficult for everyone concerned. Difficult for the Beatles because though they began to dislike his attitude and professionalism, they are afraid of the repercussions if the people find out that Pete was fired (Pete Best being the most popular member of the band - same thing when Ringo joined the band, he has the most fan mail). That repercussion culminated when someone punched George Harrison after their set at the Cavern - the very next day, they were to have their first recording session at EMI with Ringo. Photos of that session clearly reveals George's black eye.

It was difficult for Brian Epstein because the other three assigned him to tell Pete the bad news.

It was difficult for road manager and official driver Neil Aspinall because he was Pete Best's best friend (no pun intended) and Neil was the boyfriend of Pete's mother - Mona Best. Neil had to swallow hard upon learning the news. With deep thought, he decided to stay with the Beatles, and he became the band's most trusted ally next to Brian Epstein.

To this day, there are still loyal Beatles fans that claim that Pete Best was THE Beatles drummer and Ringo was the catalyst for the band's sellout.

Another reason yata that he was fired from the group ay dahil ayaw nyang sumunod sa bagong porma ng beatles (hairdo & formal clothes). Gusto nyang mag-stick sa leather jacket at 50's rock & roll hairdo. Nung nagpe-perform daw ang Beatles sa Cavern with the new drummer Ringo, there were fans na may mga placard na nakasulat "Pete Forever, Ringo Never".

Nagform ng bagong band si Pete Best after he was fired, according to wikipedia. And after lumabas ng Anthology Album, dun lang sya nabayaran ng royalty.

Was Pete Best on the Beatles mind to replace Ringo when he(Ringo) got his tonsils removed during the Australia Tour? Jimmy Nichols came in, out from nowhere I guess :wink:

Jimmie Nicol was the immediate replacement that George Martin had in mind. Martin had produced a Tommy Quickly recording with Nicol as the drummer. Also, there were series of Beatles cover recordings released by low budget record labels (deceiving people as Beatles albums but instead were covers) and most of the time, Jimmie Nicol was the drummer so he knew the band's catalog very well. Everything happened so fast: Ringo was hospitalized, the Beatles had a tour in Australia the next day, band was in disarray, George Martin called Jimmie to come down to Abbey Road thereby stopping any agenda for a recording and instead became an emergency rehearsal, George Harrison protested saying he did not want to go Down Under without Ringo and asked for a reliever likewise, John-Paul-George Martin-Brian-Neil and Mal persuaded George to reconsider and he relented.

Jimmie was a Beatle for 2 weeks and was allegedly paid L2,500.00 per show. When Ringo returned Jimmie left the Beatles while they were still sleeping having no time to say goodbye and thank you to them because his flight was at dawn. Instead Brian Epstein gave Jimmie L500.00 more and am EternaMatic wrist watch with an inscription of thanks from the band and Epstein.

But what could have been a career boost for Nicol instead became his downfall, his last gasp of fame came when Dave Clark became ill and Jimmie subbed for him for a season in Blackpool. After that, he returned to his original group the Shubdubs but had no hits, joined the Spotnicks in 1965. Declared bankruptcy in late 1965. And quit showbiz altogether in the late '60s to become a carpenter. He is now a recluse in London.

They DID have an idea of calling Pete Best but he has his group then and there was too much bad blood about his sacking. Also, this might give a false idea to the fans that Ringo was permanently fired and rehired Best.

Thanks a lot Bryan. :-)It's highly probable this is the true reason. So getting Jimmie Nicol instead of Peter Best for Ringo's temporary replacement was a wise decision because Ringo might get offended too. He was even thinking if the three (3) Beatles still love him that time then because he was replaced. Anyway, per history Ringo followed them in Australia on the remaining dates of the Tour and was warmly welcomed by John, Paul & George as well as the fans. :wink:

The following Beatles recordings have NO true stereo versions:
1. Love Me Do (both the Andy White and Ringo Starr versions were recorded direct to 2-track tape)
2. P.S. I Love You
3. She Loves You
4. I'll Get You

up until these 4 songs, once they are released on records, the master tape was either reused or discarded. If one looks at the Please Please me album, the first two songs above were in their fake stereo mix. The master tape for them while the album is being prepared were already discarded. So since then the only master tape remaining in the EMI vaults where the fake stereo Andy White version. Subsequent reissues were prepared using pristine mint condition vinyl from private record collectors.

To date, there is an argument as to whether Sie Liebt Dich used the same backing track as the original She Loves You. The obvious argument and documentation is that the Beatles re-recorded the entire backing track in France for the German version. To a casual listener, this argument is very very believable. But there are some dedicated Beatles fans who dare to question the authenticity of this argument as someone was able to find the original backing track of the original recording of She Loves You on that very same French studio in which Sie Liebt Dich was recorded.

An article by Lambert Ramirez:

About forty years ago, The Beatles landed in the Philippines from Tokyo for a two-concert stop. But what was anticipated to be The Beatles' second biggest concert ever became a dark spot in the group's history. Just exactly what happened on those fateful days remain confusing to many. Was it simply a case of miscommunication, lack of communication, false assumptions, opportunism? Whatever, the Philippine experience became one of the last nails on The Beatles' touring coffin as Neil Aspi¬nall, a very close Beatle associate, put it.
The Manila concert was the last leg in the fab four's two-week tour of Germany and Japan. On July 3, 1966, The Beatles landed on Philippine soil for the first and last time. This two-night stopover in Manila proved disastrous from arrival to departure. Upon landing, The Beatles were immediately whisked to a pier and put on Marina, a yacht owned by Don Manolo Elizalde, two miles from the port. This arrangement completely cut The Beatles from their associates for at least two hours— the first time it ever happened.
On July 4, The Beatles held two soldout concerts at the Rizal Memorial Football Stadium with a combined attendance of 80,000; the evening concert registered 50,000 paying audience, being rivaled only in size by the concert The Beatles gave at Shea Stadium in New York on August 15, 1965. Such record-making statistic though was supplanted by the succeeding events owing to a fiasco that happened earlier in the day.
The Beatles' alleged snub of then-First Lady Imelda Marcos remains hazy to many Beatles fans. Even reliable sources maintain conflicting accounts.
The common story goes this way.
On July 4, a lunch was set at Malacañang Palace at 11 a.m. with 300 children waiting to see The Beatles. An hour before the party, a delegation came to the Manila Hotel to collect The Beatles. Brian Epstein, The Beatles' manager, declined the invitation on the grounds that no earlier arrangement had been made and The Beatles were still in bed.
The day's scheduled concerts, however, later proceeded successfully. In between concerts, local televisions reported the alleged "snub" showing footages of children, some crying, disappointed by The Beatles. Epstein watched in horror and went immediately to the television studio to apologize and set the facts straight. But barely had he started reading his press statement when the transmission blipped.
Newspapers carried the headline, "Beatles Snub President." The following morning was the scheduled departure of The Beatles to New Delhi. Suddenly, The Beatles and their entourage realized they were practically on their own without any help: Room and transportation services were withdrawn. In the airport, the whole Beatles entourage was manhandled as it made its way to the plane.
Tony Barrow, the tour's publicity man and part of the entourage, claimed that Epstein received the invitation the night before the concerts but remained noncommittal. Whether it was wise for the local promoter to take this silence as approval is now moot.
Bill Harry, in his book The Ultimate Beatles Encyclopedia, acknowledges the existence of an invitation from Ramon Ramos, the local promoter, for The Beatles to pay a courtesy call on the First Lady, but it was slated for 3 p.m. of July 4, an hour before The Beatles' scheduled afternoon concert. Ramos did not pursue this invitation, since The Beatles wanted to be in the concert location two hours before the set. Nor did he inform anyone in Malacañang about this. A further mixup in schedule emerged when the Palace set the meeting at 11 a.m. as reported in The Manila Times on July 3. Whether anyone went out of his way to settle the matter, and what transpired in this effort, if any, remains unknown.
Peter Brown, the executive director of NEMS Enterprises (The Beatles' Vic Lewis, the tour agent, received the invitation while still in Tokyo but failed to relay this to him.
What is interesting about Brown’s account though was the call Epstein received, immediately after his refusal, from the British ambassador, who advised him against missing the party of the First Lady, and reminded him that the help and protection they were receiving in Manila was courtesy of the President. Epstein stood by his decision. Whether The Beatles would have come to the party even if Epstein recalled his decision is another question though.
UNKNOWN to many, almost 40 years ago on July 4, 1966, The Beatles made history in Manila. They played twice to the biggest paying crowd in a single day in Manila with at least a combined audience of 80,000 in attendance, unmatched anywhere in the band’s touring history.
At 4:00 p.m. that day, The Beatles launched their first gig before a delighted crowd of 30,000 at the Rizal Memorial Football Stadium, yet unaware of the ugly events that awaited them owing to their inadvertent failure to show up at a luncheon party for them in Malacañang.
Four hours later, The Beatles returned to the same place for their second and last concert in Manila, this time to a crowd of 50,000. The latter, grossly ignored by many to this day, is The Beatles’ second-biggest concert attendance in history, surpassed only by their concert at the Shea Stadium in New York in August of 1965.
All in all, the Beatles performed 11 songs in their Manila con-certs. They opened with the Chuck Berry original Rock and Roll Music and followed it up with 10 original Beatles compositions: “She’s a Woman,” “If I Needed Someone,” “Day Tripper,” “Baby’s in Black,” “I Feel Fine,” “Yesterday,” “I Wanna be Your Man,” “Nowhere Man,” “Paperback Writer” and “I’m Down.”
This repertoire of less than a dozen songs basically went unchanged throughout the Beatles’ tour of Germany, Japan and Manila. In fact, the Beatles performed the same standard set when they toured the United States for the last time in August 1966, a month after the “Manila nightmare.”
From time to time, The Beatles deviated from this set by taking on “Long Tally Sally” instead of “I’m Down” as closing climax. On few occasions, they played both. Encore performances were probably not yet in vogue then, because whenever Paul introduced the last song with the line “Our next number will be our last number . . . ”, it was indeed the end of the show. Straight from the platform, The Beatles, as a rule, proceeded immediately to a waiting car parked nearby for a swift exit from the concert arena.
A recording of The Beatles’ concert here in Manila has yet to surface, if any. We listened to their last ever concert to a paying audience in Candlestick Park in San Francisco on August 29, 1966, and it carried the same standard repertoire. The whole concert clocked around 30 minutes, including the adlibs. By today’s standards, this is way too short. For example, Paul McCartney’s 3,000th gig in St. Petersburg on June 20, 2004, reportedly lasted for two and a half hours despite the threat of a downpour.
If anything, the concert in Manila proved that The Beatles were at the height of their success. One member of the audience present in this historical concert, a nine-year-old boy at the time, posted a comment in a website devoted to The Beatles back in 1999. He remembers that he was one of the spectators along with his two other older brothers. He said The Beatles looked too small as he and his brothers were seated in a more distant section from the stage and their singing could hardly be heard as their vocals were drowned by the screaming of fans.
Some of our best artists fronted for The Beatles in these concerts. They included Eddie Reyes and D’Downbeats (with the D’Cavalcade Dancers), Dale Adriatico, Wing Duo, Pilita Corrales, Lemons Three, Quartet (accompanied by Pilita Corrales and The Lemmons Three) and The Reycard Duet.
Based on the photos available on the Internet, the cost of a grandstand ringside ticket then was P30, while a field reserved ticket had a tag price of P20. Gate receipts from the two concerts totaled $100,000.
Despite the bitter experience that The Beatles and their entourage experienced at the hands of airport security personnel when they left the country, they did not leave without posting yet another milestone in their touring history with their Manila concerts.

An article by Lambert Ramirez:

About forty years ago, The Beatles landed in the Philippines from Tokyo for a two-concert stop. But what was anticipated to be The Beatles' second biggest concert ever became a dark spot in the group's history. Just exactly what happened on those fateful days remain confusing to many. Was it simply a case of miscommunication, lack of communication, false assumptions, opportunism?

 Upon landing, The Beatles were immediately whisked to a pier and put on Marina, a yacht owned by Don Manolo Elizalde, two miles from the port.

On July 4, a lunch was set at Malacañang Palace at 11 a.m. with 300 children waiting to see The Beatles. An hour before the party, a delegation came to the Manila Hotel to collect The Beatles. Brian Epstein, The Beatles' manager, declined the invitation on the grounds that no earlier arrangement had been made and The Beatles were still in bed.

Bill Harry, in his book The Ultimate Beatles Encyclopedia, acknowledges the existence of an invitation from Ramon Ramos, the local promoter, for The Beatles to pay a courtesy call on the First Lady, but it was slated for 3 p.m. of July 4, an hour before The Beatles' scheduled afternoon concert.


I believe it's a case of false assumption and miscommunication between the Palace and the Beatles. What I've read in a magazine before was the boys were even surprised by the TV news on that they snubbed the Marcoses.

Some of our best artists fronted for The Beatles in these concerts. They included Eddie Reyes and D’Downbeats (with the D’Cavalcade Dancers), Dale Adriatico, Wing Duo, Pilita Corrales, Lemons Three, Quartet (accompanied by Pilita Corrales and The Lemmons Three) and The Reycard Duet.

Di natin masabi kung nagkita nga sila. At this stage in their career where there are death threats, I think the Beatles are always secluded and heavily guarded and I doubt if they meet other artists.

There's a little possibility they might have seen the Beatles but it's quite probable they might not have met them and exchanged pleasantries.. They were close and yet so far, it's a given The Beatles were heavily guarded.

.. but hey Bryan, why they were in a yacht instead of The Manila Hotel? Is there much wisdom behind?

Pete Best interviewed latety

http://www.radio.cz/en/article/129437

Beatles' gigantic success “no surprise”, says original drummer Pete Best at Prague exhibition

How did you view the madness, the Beatlemania, from the sidelines, when the Beatles rather quickly became huge global stars?

“I think it was something which was…it wasn’t a surprise, like a lot of people think. It was something which was expected, we’d seen fan appeal even when I was with them. Even before they broke America and they went on to become icons of the music industry, they were still getting this fantastic response from audiences. And I think that was the charisma. They had something that wasn’t bottled, it was new, the way they presented it was new, and I think they just captivated the world.” Pete Best

Another reason yata that he was fired from the group ay dahil ayaw nyang sumunod sa bagong porma ng beatles (hairdo & formal clothes). Gusto nyang mag-stick sa leather jacket at 50's rock & roll hairdo. Nung nagpe-perform daw ang Beatles sa Cavern with the new drummer Ringo, there were fans na may mga placard na nakasulat "Pete Forever, Ringo Never".

Nagform ng bagong band si Pete Best after he was fired, according to wikipedia. And after lumabas ng Anthology Album, dun lang sya nabayaran ng royalty.

Si John sa Rock n Roll album nya, bumalik sa style ng hairdo at leather jacket :wink:

Paul surprised Ringo when Ringo celebrated his 70th birthday last July 7, 2010!



Ringo Starr got a special treat for his 70th birthday last night. Ex-Beatle Paul McCartney showed up at Ringo's All Starr concert at Radio City Music Hall and sang the Beatles' song "Birthday" to his friend and former bandmate. Ringo played drums while McCartney, 68, sang at the microphone. Paul and Ringo hugged and kissed after the song was over. What a treat for all the Beatles fans in the audience! Last year, Paul and Ringo appeared together at the 'Change Begins Within' benefit concert for the David Lynch Foundation.

Earlier in the day at noon, Ringo Starr celebrated "Peace & Love" with fans in Times Square. Ringo called for fans to celebrate his 70th birthday by saying "Peace & Love" in honor of his birthday at noon all around the world.

A small birthday celebration for Ringo was then held inside the Hard Rock Cafe in Times Square. Ringo, accompanied by wife, Barbara Bach, was presented with a large sheet cake decorated with the picture of a hand with two fingers gesturing the peace sign

Guys, this is a very strange idea but...

To all of you who regularly post in this thread, howsabout meeting on the 9th of December for a kind of bonding with Beatles fans dito sa PM? Puwede tayong mag jam, dala tayo instrumento. Dala rin tayo ng food, mga Beatles related memorabilia (rare lps, posters, books etc..) and really just bond with each other and share our love for the music of the Beatles. Slowhanpal and I live South of Metro Manila pero I think open din naman ito sa lahat.

I don't want to give details and logistics yet kasi nga it is only a wacky idea. You think you are warm to the idea?

It might be strange but it's a brilliant idea. I'm behind you Bryan. :wink: I'm very happy for this.

Dec. 9 is a perfect date in time to commemorate Lennon's death anniversary. If the guys out there are doing it, let's do it too our own way. Ample time to prepare bros.

I guess we've got to know who among you guys are willing to participate.

I play guitar & lead vocals for George's songs, back up vocals for songs of John & Paul.

Introduce yourselves & what instrument you play so we can group ourselves for Beatles and post Beatles repertoire.

A journey of a thousand miles begin with a single step... Bryan have done it, it's our turn to respond

Sir Obetskie, I guess you play guitar too?

sir Bryan, I used to live in Kamagong Road with my cousin

guitarist din ako sir, pwede rin bass.!

Game ako dito. 10 years ago ata meron din nakita ako sa SM Manila, meron mga Beatles items sa isang Booth. Nakita ko nga don Rickenbacker tulad kay John Lennon. pero walang jam

Kailangan seguro sir may mga committees or in charge sa repertoire, exhibits, groupings. kahit one day affair. 3 sets of 10 songs each. example set 1 Beatles songs, set 2 songs nong disbanded na ang Beatles, set 3 super jam na..parang All Starr Band, pwede interpretations na ng performers. magandang idea to sir sana matutuloy.

sino drummer at bass player dito? keyboard player din atbp

O ayun, may tatlong guitarista na, may isang bahista at drummer. Keyboardista na lang. (siyempre we need to hear those orchestral stuff and various odd noises sa later Beatles material.)

regarding trading items...i just might be willing to trade a copy of "the beatles" (by bob spitz) for a copy of "the lives of john lennon" (by albert goldman).  i bought my copy of spitz's book for nearly P1500 in 2007 thinking it was as good as it's hyped up to be...it turned out to be good, but way overrated.  mas ok pa yung "shout" (by philip norman), at least kasama din dun yung post-beatles history ng individual members, although it's a bit slanted against paul and george. 

as for "the lives of john lennon", i realize that goldman did a hatchet job on lennon with this immediate post-assassination release, but i've always been curious to see what's in there.  bookay ukay used to have a copy, but i was broke when i saw it for sale about a year ago...

pag-iisipan ko muna...especially since i'm not exactly the best handler of books out there.  (although di naman to the extent of severely dog-eared or torn pages.)  and speaking of books, i hope mark lewisohn would hurry up with the first part of his three-part beatles biography...this year daw irerelease yung first part, with the third due in 2018.  dammit, by that time i'll be 40 years old and ringo starr would be pushing 80...   :lol:  but it's apparent lewisohn wants to do as good a job as possible and take as much time as he needs.  given his reputation as the world's ultimate beatles authority, here's hoping it's a good one!  :-D

Most welcome Slowhandpal. It has to be said that the remaining members of the Quarrymen are alive and well and STILL MAKING MUSIC! They recently released a cd made of covers of 50s rock standards. All of them repertoire of the band back in the day.

They have an official website. You can easily google it.

Also, they have lots of youtube videos. Check them out!

correct me if i'm wrong, but eric griffiths of the quarrymen died about a year or two ago...  :(

other than that, you're right, the rest of the non-beatle quarrymen are still alive, kicking, and playing music!   :-D

sana maka buo tayo 3 groups para one group for each set( 1 to 3), tapos sama sama na sa last set :wink:. Maganda rin tumogtog sa 4th set a, I think I have to re rehearse the Bas Muys Album.


kung ganun, then i hope my bandmate could join us.  PM forumite din siya, pero mas active siya sa mga basketball forums.   :-P  he's a bassist/vocalist and a huge fan of the beatles...

NIce suggested songs for set 1 bro.. especially I'm so tired & I call your name.


thanks man...  :-D  when me and aforementioned bandmate were playing together with another band, we used to cover "i'm so tired"...and i unsuccessfully tried to sing it with another band na parang one shot lang...proof that i'm much better suited to playing the drums...

That would be great! What do you think Bryan? If we have enough numbers mas masaya segurado. Is he left handed bro?  :wink: Pagamitin natin Hofner Bass, sayang! na kay Dyugs na bass ko but I'm thinking of inviting him this early. Sana walang conflict sa sked nila at sa manager :-).They used to cover Beatles before they became what they are now. I'm just so glad they didn't change despite of success.

nope...righty siya, unfortunately.  but i'd say he's quite good for someone who just started playing the bass in '08...   :-D

and yes, i do remember the itchyworms bago sila naging sikat, nung pineplay pa sa in the raw yung mga demo nila.  they covered a lot of beatles songs when they were just starting out...

No.. but i do play a guitar.

Mga Bro alam nyo ba yung movie na Nowhere boy? sobrang cool ng movie na yun. tungkol sa buhay ni john lennon bago pa mabuo yung beatles. Quarrymen pa yung banda nya sa movie na yun. Napanood ko na, di nownload ko lang sa kung saan.  :-D

Sa b-day pla ni Lennon mag lalabas sila ng bagong box set.. excited na sana ako biglang nabasa ko pa. Produced by yoko ono.  :cry:
mas okay pa yung John Lennon mini-LP box set na mula sa Japan.

IM a huge fan of the beatles. gusto ko sana magbuo ng banda na nag cocover ng beatles kaso hindi ako magaling..  :-D

For me the more the merrier. Ang iniisip ko if this thing pushes through, the emphasis would be more on the music, the band and the potential friendships we can make that day. So if we can have a lot of musicians why not? Pulot pulot lang naman tayo so I reckon we cannot possibly play all 4 sets.

For the proposed 4 sets I made, washboard is not needed hehehehehe......I doubt if anyone of us can play skiffle.....But you can never tell...... 8-)

I only hope we can find a keyboardist and a female singer for that day. This is A LOT of music and some of them have intricate piano and strings arrangements. Paano kung nag-request pa ng mga Sgt. Pepper materials?

For the female singer, para naman ito sa mga Cilia Black tunes.

Oh I don't have a treasure chest hehehehe.....I just want to complete my Beatles music on LP. Naiinis ako wala atang plano i-release yung 2009 remasters sa LP.

Join us bro, baka sa rehearsal pa lang makaka meet ka na o makapamili co members. As Bryan mentioned the emphasis will be the Music of The Beatles.

We'll try to complete the sets till end of July, then we'll conceptualize and finalize the plan that includes the following:

1. Final number of sets and songs. I believe we also play songs they recorded in collaboration with other          artists eg. Badge(George & Clapton), Ebony & Ivory( Paul & stevie), Yer Blues (John with Clapton), Day after Day (George with Badfinger), The Man (Paul & Michael) jeje ano pa ba?
2. Final list of participating musicians
3. Venue for at least one rehearsal.
4. Musicians to play the particular set. If the numbers may not be enough, we may form just a 4 piece Band (drums, guitar, keyboard & bass) and call on players to play for particular songs.
5. Final Venue.

By mid August mas ok if alam na natin details para yon na lang ang irerehearse natin. Basta ang last two numbers tayo na lahat. ANo final song? With a little help from my friends o Abbey Road medley? Golden slumbers/ carry that weight/The end?

This is a group effort by all Beatles fans started by Bryan, let's help him plan everything on set. Feel free to air any suggestion guys so this would be more joyous

May I add:

I am also heavily thinking to keep costs down as so many of us are not financially well off. Siguro we just celebrate in someone's house na malaki or a clubhouse of a village or barangay. Sa instruments, let us just find the cheapest rental just make sure na hindi naman pupugakpugak ang gamit. We must remember by December mahal na ang rentahan ng instrumento.

Sa food, I suggesst pot luck na lang. Yung mga hindi magdadala ng guitars, bass or keyboards, food na lang ang dalhin nila. Hindi rin naman siguro kamahalan kumuha ng San Mig light and Red Wine and soft drink for the proceedings.

I also want to shout out to those guys na may connection sa Media ESPECIALLY Rock oriented media. Siguro we can invite a DJ to be the host (kung buhay pa si Howlin' Dave, he would be the PERFECT candidate for this).

I am also thinking of this as a family affair. You can bring your high school kids so they can have a music education that they cannot get in their schools but mine (I am not bragging but me being a music teacher, I include rock in my curricula - be it Beatles or Lady Gaga - they are worthy of being studied). We get the host give snippets of info about the Beatles ESPECIALLY John Lennon being his 30th year anniversary of passing.

Inviting the Bloomfields or the Bloom Brothers? Wag na lang - mahal! Let's give out the music for free! I'm sure there would be a lot of pro musicians who will not pass up this opportunity to make friends and connections hereby giving his services for free (Like me!)

Sana matuloy itong proposed jam to commemorate John's death anniversary.

Sana dito na lang sa Manila...para makapunta din ako. Pwede actually ito i refer sa event specialist, medyo gagastos nga lang.

But if this proposition really means something, we can shell out a bit. Isa pa marami ang me gusto nito  :-)

Ajeje oo nga dapat sa Post Beatles ang It don't Come Easy at Not Such a Bad Boy. Iniisip ko parang pag dalawahin na lang ang first 3 sets total maiiksi naman ang mga songs ng Beatles. Ang 4th set as is na yan, dagdagan na lang 2 songs if meron pa.. Calling Bryan :wink:

Sir Karl ok yang ideas mo, galing a! ask din natin Sir Bryan and others. But for me siguro ililimit natin for each set, majority pa rin original arrangements.

I want to end the show with the Abbey Road Medley and/or All You Need Is Love. As for re-arranging the tunes, I personally am not keen on that. That would mean rehearsals in which we are trying to avoid. Besides it is about THEIR music and not what we can do with it so I guess, let's just stick to the original arrangements. At any rate - sisiprahin na lang that lessens a lot of hassles trying to know other things. Besides, if we are bringing non-musicians especially high school kids who we want to educate, doing re-arrangements will only give confusion. Likewise, the others not in the know would want to hear it according to the sound they are accustomed to.

I am thinking of a much systematic way of doing the sets. Let's see if you would like it this way:

Set 1 : Early Beatles (1962-1965)
Set 2 : Coming-of-age Beatles (Help to Revolver)
Set 3 : Psychedelic Beatles (1966-1968)
Set 4 : Later Years (1969-1970)
Set 5 : Written but not recorded by the Beatles
Set 6 : Beatles covers
Set 7 : Post Beatles
Finale

Or to be a bit more comprehensive
Set 1 : Pre/early Beatles (1958-1966) (this would include their covers)
Set 2 : later Beatles (1967-1970)
Set 3 : Written but not recorded by the Beatles
Set 4 : Post Beatles
Finale : Abbey Road Medley and All You Need Is Love

Don't worry, I'll take care of it. I'll do them harmonica parts.

As for the long list, we choose 15. Based on what people will like.

nasa planning stage pa lang tayo, by far keyboard player ang wala, si Endshiftresign drummer. Do you play drums bro? No problem, everyone is welcome. pag madami tayo mas masaya at pwede din naman 2 or 3 groups. each group can play 1 set. we can also form a 4 or 5 piece band to form the core group, tapos each performer may naka assign na lang na number so everybody can participate. Opinion ko lang to. Nothing is final yet. Brian & I are soliciting your ideas how to make this plan succesful.

dinagdag ko na ba yung "i call your name" sa early set list?

eto pa...

"boys" (where the beatles didn't bother to do much gender switching from the shirelles' original)
"what you're doing"  (wala lang.  sarap lang tugtugin yung intro sa drums, though for a beatles song, it's average.)
"i'm down" (pwedeng-pwede magwala yung mga would-be billy preston or nicky hopkins, though AFAIK si lennon yung keyboardista dito.  at mas pwede pang magwala sa vocals!)

will think of more over the weekend...

and correction, sir slowhandpal...di po ako bassist.   :-D  i'm a drummer and frustrated singer (who drives his girlfriend crazy when he screams along to "oh darlin'" or "don't let me down"), but first and foremost, a drummer...

1. from Prehistoric Beatles up to Rubber Soul
2. Psychedelic/Experimental (Revolver, Sgt. Pepper, Magical Mystery Tour, Yellow Submarine)
3. The Downfall (White Album, Abbey Road, Let It Be)

Ang masakit lang talaga sa ulo, ang pagpili ng specific songs for each set. LOL

Last Saturday, my friend handed me an album by Julian Lennon (John's son) entitled "Valotte." I first heard the the title track when I was in HS. Never bought the album. Ignored it for a long time. I didn't know what hit me, but one day I asked my friends who are into business of buying and selling lps to get me copy of the album. After more than 25 years, I finally have the lp (textured cover and printed in Canada, in near mint condition).

(http://i38.tinypic.com/34xlzmd.jpg)

Apart from doing the vocals, Julian played bass guitar and piano in this album. I'm not reviewing this lp here because I'm not good at that. Few words may be. Four out of five stars.  :-)

I wasted no time buying a cassette tape when it was available then. A great album for me. Julian really sounded like his father John. No need to mention he also looks like his Dad.

Take care of that record. Canadian pressed vinyl are notorious for breaking easily.

I was wondering why Julian Lennon wasn't able to sustain his career after his debut release (1984). It was a great album to listen to. My personal favorite is "Too Late For Goodbyes". After this album, he released a few more but none was well received. I hope his new album to be released next year will fare a bit better.

Julian might have peaked too early. He was in his early twenty's when he recorded his debut album under Atlantic Records. "Valotte," which is actually the name of the chateau where the album and this song were recorded, is a personal fave. The album reminds me of John and Yoko's Double Fantasy. One track sounded like "Clean Up Time" and another one the opening lines of which must have been inspired by the Rolling Stones' "Let's Spend the Night Together." From this, one can tell what contributed to Julian's pop song writing. I gave this lp 4 stars not because it was comparable to Doors' first lp or Allman Bros. Fillmore East, which by the way were also given 4 stars rating by the Rolling Stone Mag, or any other 4 star albums, but because "Valotte" placed Julian in the league of artists who contributed in the 80s. He just made something that can be considered timeless and always fresh.

BTW another friend is giving me another copy of the "Valotte" lp, this time either US or UK pressing. I never thought Canadian pressed lps are known for breaking easily. Anyway, like you said I should take care of the lp.

Julian might have peaked too early. He was in his early twenty's when he recorded his debut album under Atlantic Records. "Valotte," which is actually the name of the chateau where the album and this song were recorded, is a personal fave. The album reminds me of John and Yoko's Double Fantasy. One track sounded like "Clean Up Time" and another one the opening lines of which must have been inspired by the Rolling Stones' "Let's Spend the Night Together." From this, one can tell what contributed to Julian's pop song writing. I gave this lp 4 stars not because it was comparable to Doors' first lp or Allman Bros. Fillmore East, which by the way were also given 4 stars rating by the Rolling Stone Mag, or any other 4 star albums, but because "Valotte" placed Julian in the league of artists who contributed in the 80s. He just made something that can be considered timeless and always fresh.

BTW another friend is giving me another copy of the "Valotte" lp, this time either US or UK pressing. I never thought Canadian pressed lps are known for breaking easily. Anyway, like you said I should take care of the lp.

It's a great Debut album by Julian. Too sad he lost the Grammy for New Artist in Sade. Alaka ko ranway winner na si Julian non, pumatok din kasi ang Smooth operator non.

Have you heard about this woman? She is from the most popular political family in our country. She is also the "black sheep" of that family next to her uncle. She without the slightest hesitation divulges her dirty laundry in public hoping to get the sympathy of the people.

She absolutely have very very very very little musical aptitude but was able to release several albums and even judged a talent show competition. Oddly enough, her comments gives weight so that the contestants she admires gets a lot of text votes.

Oh, her favorite band of all time is MYMP.

And - she hates the Beatles kasi raw it reminds her of old people!

Never heard ko nga ’yung mga songs. So I gave him this CD and DVD collection of re-mastered Beatles songs.

WTF!!?? Utol kong maliit nag i-airguitar habang kumakanta ng revolution tapos sya something hindi alam??  :x pero Swerte ni Josh kompleto na nya Remastered CD...   :|

Last Saturday, my friend handed me an album by Julian Lennon (John's son) entitled "Valotte." I first heard the the title track when I was in HS. Never bought the album. Ignored it for a long time. I didn't know what hit me, but one day I asked my friends who are into business of buying and selling lps to get me copy of the album. After more than 25 years, I finally have the lp (textured cover and printed in Canada, in near mint condition).

(http://i38.tinypic.com/34xlzmd.jpg)

Apart from doing the vocals, Julian played bass guitar and piano in this album. I'm not reviewing this lp here because I'm not good at that. Few words may be. Four out of five stars.  :-)

I never thought he would lose the Grammy for new Artist to Sade. Pumatok din kasi ang Smooth Operator that time.

I hope we can complete the 3 sets this week. While waiting we may start thinking how we gonna do it..Will it be by sets, by songs, by groups or we will form a core group and call performers to join for particular songs. :wink:

Lahat ng regular albums (UK titles either UK, EU or Jpn pressing), Beatles '65 and VI, Love Songs, Rarities (Jpn pressed), Anthology 1 and 2, LIB...Naked, Past Masters V1 and V2, Hey Jude (mini LP). Except for Love Songs (vg+), lahat either in nm or brand new condition :-)

Minsan nagka stock ng Love lp sa Fully Booked mga 2,5k ata pero di ko na binili kasi ok na yung cd. Kahapon andun ako, wala stock ng Beatles lp.

Actually, kuntento na ako sa regular titles. Lahat kasi maganda. Yung iba nakuha ko either hindi naman kamahalan o me nag alok sa akin at manghinayang ka if you don't get it i.e. LIB...Naked (nm, 1,5k), Revolver (2nd copy ko, jpn/ nm, less than 500 kasi sa Nagoya ko nabili), Anthology 1, under 2k sa FB. Minsan me tsamba lang.

Beatles UK discography ire remaster sa lp format? Ok yan. Pero me ipag iiba pa ba? Kasi yung MOFI at DMM pressing ok na din. Yung Japan pressed okey din. Kumbaga, naka capture na ng mga lp collectors yung sound ng Beatles. Kung maalala mo yung mga unang Hendrix remasters under MCA were characterized as overproduced. Later on and after a long court battle over the rights of Hendrix recordings, the same Hendrix titles were re-issued pero mas ok na at di na oa gaya ng una. Halos fifteen years din yun a.

Anyway, siguro nga baka me igaganda pa.

Oh those 1993 Hendrix remaster/remix by Allan Douglas? Well...what can I say.....Allan Douglas had the nerve to make decisions on how to manipulate the Hendrix Tapes. Good thing the legacy is restored to the Hendricks family and the new remasters are very good.

The 09-09-09 remasters is well received by the public and the vinyl version is in the works. Di ko alam how will this be compared to Mobile Fidelity pero judging from the cds, this looks very very promising. I just hope EMI will be able to concentrate on the project now that it is threatened to close shop. YESSIR, MUKHANG MALAPIT NANG MAGSARA ANG EMI. One recent event is a shocker: Queen and Pink Floyd both left EMI. Queen in now in MCA wherein a massive reissue of their entire catalog is underway with that new label. Di ko lang alam saan lumipat ang Pink Floyd.

"1" is another good start. Actually yung mga Direct Metal Master lps ng Beatles e mga remastered na din gaya ng MOFI. Kahit Class D ang audio system mo, actually di mo kailangan ng mga remastered lps ng Beatles kasi yung mga original (kahit re-issues lalo na't UK, EU or JPN pressed) na pressing e magaganda na. Kung Class A o B (please refer to stereophile's 500 recommended components for definitions of classes in audio) ang audio mo, lalo kang mag eenjoy sa mga Beatles lps at lalong di mo na kailangan ng remastered lps. Pero kung nasanay ka sa tunog ng Love at Anthology albums....mapapagastos ka lalo sa Beatles lps  :-)

I've heard all Beatles lps through Class A+ and B audio system at talagang WOW. Maa appreciate mo talaga yung galing ng Beatles sa sound reproduction. Ibang iba talaga sila during their time. Mas gusto ko pa nga recording nila kesa sa mga bago.

Which goes to show (and I will defend this to anyone) that EMI Studios especially during the '60s where the best studios in England. One must remember that the Beatles recorded their music on "substandard" equipment via EMI Standards. The top-of-the-line equipment was reserved for classical, MOR and jazz artists. The only rock act to record on studio one then was Cliff Richard and the Shadows. It doesn't help to that The Beatles were signed to Parlophone - at the time a minor label of EMI compared to Columbia (there are two Columbia labels then - CBS and EMI - how it has came to be is another story, PM me if you want to know).

What kind of Beatles LP to buy? Sa akin any country of manufacture will do as all of them sounds good to ok. Ingat lang sa mga locally pressed lps especially the PARI era reissues. A lot of the Beatles titles were already pressed with locally made stampers at the time kaya the sound is terrible. In fact I had a PARI era Please Please Me that I discarded kasi it is in MONO rather than Stereo as stated on the sleeve and label.

The remastered vinyl will be based on the 2009 digital remasters. We better check them out soon!

Tama si plasticsoul, any vinyl release of the Beatles is a good buy. The music is more important than the sound quality anyway - not that I'm saying that crappy sounding records is approved by me.

OK na ako sa Beatles USB stereo 24bit ko kung kokopyahin lang rin mula sa 2009 digital remasters yung Remastered vinyl.

Naisip ko rin kaya lang naman niremaster yung CD kasi palpak yung 1987 copies. Naisip ko rin na bakit hindi na lang sa original analog master kopyahin yung ilalabas na bagong vinyl kaysa sa bagong remasters? hindi ko pa naririnig yung mga pinaka unang UK pressing pero maraming nagsasabi na mas maganda pa raw yun kaysa sa 2009 remasters? sana ganun na lang gawin nila para maramdaman din ng mga kabataang ngayon yung pakiramdam ng mga fans ng beatles noong una silang lumabas.

Dagdag ko lang yung mga pangarap kong irelease nila.

Stereo/mono box set in dvd-audio and blu-ray.
Beatles USB 24bit in MONO (tulad ng Beatles USB stereo)
individual sale ng Mono remaster.
Stereo/mono ng beatles Remixes.. (hindi yung remix na pang jeep na may Beat, kumbaga ayusin lang nila yung pag separate ng mga tracks. minsan kasi yung sa kaliwa yung vocals tapos lahat ng instrument sa kabila. hirap pakinggan sa headset.) :-D

Wala ka nang magagawa sa Stereo Mix ng first two albums. It was not intended for stereo release in the first place. It was just demanded by the EMI office to release it in stereo.
The first two albums were recorded on two track machine kaya one track has the rhythm track and on the second track was the vocals and guitar solos. There is no way you can separate them further. Kaya ang stereo result nun parang multiplex. Puwede ka ngang mag karaoke sa first two albums with the band as your backing band.

How I wish na EMI reissues the entire catalog using the original tapes. But then......

Hindi bootleg. Original labels. I'm referring to other artists, and not the Beatles. Napansin ko mga sony/ columbia artists. Sila din kasi nag introduce ng blu-spec cd. Pero di ba nasa kanila ngayon ang Beatles catalogue? So hindi malayo na gawin din yun sa same format. Kaya lang, maganda na din naman ang mga newly remastered Beatles albums. So no need siguro in the meantime.

Merun nang Blu-ray of the same title di ko lang kinuha kasi mahal halos doble na price. Bibili na lang ako ng LP 180g nun kesa bumili ng bd/ cd.  :-)

You can check out HMV Japan. Dami dun.

Dami na nga nag release ng blu ray.. like Neil Young. sinasabi ko yung Beatles..

it's actually a bastardized version of "power to the people"...sung in a slightly different melody.  and sarah geronimo's "shout" commercial is just...wrong on so many levels.  hindi bagay.  not a good way to pay tribute to a soul/R&B classic...   :-(

Filipinos do not understand a lot of things. They 75% of the time bastardize a version they want to cover. I remember when they made Sarah Geronimo do Bohemian Rhapsody. They made the song sound cute! Our country is so personality oriented it needs to change.

Ever thought why a lot of good pinoy movies are a flop just because the actors are not famous? Pero kahit basura ang storya basta sikat ang mga artista kumikita?

ON ITS 30TH ANNIVERSARY, RADIO STATIONS ALL OVER THE WORLD PAID TRIBUTE TO SGT. PEPPER'S BY PLAYING AGAIN THE ALBUM.

IN 1987, RSTONE MAGAZINE VOTED IT AS THE NUMBER 1 ALBUM OF 1967-1987.

I agree, this is one helluva record! Although for my personal taste (and this is only my very very very humble opinion), Rubber Soul beats Sgt. Pepper in terms of songs. Pero of course no one has yet to beat Sgt. Pepper in terms of production values.

In 1965, "Satisfaction" by the Rolling Stones and "Like A Rolling Stone" by Bob Dylan, two of the greatest singles during the rock era,  came out. These may have challenged the songwriting team of Lennon-McCartney; hence, Rubber Soul. Two great singles...and the Beatles answered a great and a landmark album. And it was unmatched.

Meanwhile, Brian Wilson was impressed by it and wanted to come out with something better. With "Pet Sounds, " Wilson found it very hard to convince his record label to have it released. It was a very ambitious album, deviating from the usual beach songs, Pet Sounds was finally released in 1966. McCartney took notice of it.

I'm not sure if at that time, "Sgt. Pepper's" was on the verge of getting conceptualized. But the Beatles 1966 sessions gave birth to it. And, Pet Sounds somewhat contributed to the same. Of course, this is not the entire story. May be others can shed light to this. Beatles liner notes on Sgt. Pepper's tells only the chronological story of the sessions. RStone simply described the sessions. I have yet to read 1001 albums you must hear (before you die)....

Sgt. Pepper was never meant to be a concept album per se. The only songs that link together if you will analyze it very well was the first to tracks and the title track reprise. Because on so many times, the Beatles are always tight not only in playing but in musical thinking as well, the songs they compile for this album have a sort of "continuity" in them.

Paul just thought of packaging this album as a way to imagine what if it was a different act and not them. Also a message implying they are sick and tired of the old Beatles persona.

If you look at the cover there are two images of the Beatles, one as the moptops and one with the colorful military costumes. It signifies that the band is already in a different page altogether. If you look at the pictures behind them, a lot of them are no longer active in their career or chosen profession or worse dead (with a few exceptions - Marlon Brando has yet to peak on his acting career but a lot thought he was passe in the 60s). That also means that the wax figure of the Beatles means that version of the Beatles is gone.

The album session started on November 1996. The first track they rehearsed was Strawberry Fields Forever. To discuss this song demands a completely new article or thread altogether. Had Brian Epstein, never demanded a single at the beginning of 1967 (they were already taking TOO LONG to record this album), Strawberry Fields and Penny Lane would have been included on the album.

Sgt. Pepper has a lot of "firsts"
1. The first album to have printed lyrics excluding the sing-a-long albums (like Mitch Miller's)
2. The first album to have no banding gaps between songs
3. The first Beatles album to have simultaneous US and UK release with no alteration of tracks on the US version
4. The first Beatles album not to have a typeset on the front (the band name and the album title were part of the photograph itself)
5. The first to have an inner groove message
6. The first Beatles album to have a melodic reprise (the last was Abbey Road)
7. The first Beatles album to have less than 14 tracks

but
1. It was the last unified album of the band - this album signifies the beginning of the end.
2. The last album to have an exclusive mono mix. The white album was the last to have a mono release but this was just a mono reduction of stereo master.
3. The last to exclusively use The EMI studios. After this album, they record occasionally on other studios in their quest for an eight track machine which therefore means
4. The last Beatles album to be exclusively recorded on 4 track machine
5. The last Beatles album Brian Epstein lived to see

6. The first Beatles album to have a melodic reprise (the last was Abbey Road)
7. The first Beatles album to have less than 14 tracks



So many firsts...Despite being characterized as dated, Sgt. Pepper's proved to be an album that could sound fresh as ever. For the first time, a music album changed not only music itself, but also the people's lifestyle and mindset. The album simply empowered people to be more musically creative, socially and politically involved. It may have sacrificed speed, compared to "Are You Experienced?" by the Jimi Hendrix Experience, but it dictated a musical theme during the summer of love of 1967 and the post era of the flower power period. Rolling Stones and the rest watched and followed as Sgt. Pepper's materialized.

And Brian Wilson congratulated other musicians because finally, the ultimate music album of their time was produced.

Ringo Starr said: "It was the peak."

my pm ka :-D

Pa PM PM ka pa :lol: You're welcome bro, lets wait for Set 1.. Bryan we've got another brother here who plays lead guitar, banjo, ukelele & harmonica. He can sing too. Resources keep on coming.

I really believe, with Bryan, Endshiftresign et al we can also stage a descent jam if not a show like the one with Pete Best last Saturday.we just have to put our acts TOGETHER bros.

A very promising four piece group called The Satelites Band is keen on joining us. They're very good! Rey can sing like Lennon or Ely Buendia, they're bassist and drummer are likewise very good players. The're music is heavily influenced by The Beatles that's why they want to be part of the event. They are probably lurking every now and then but WE haven't taken any clear direction yet bro, we should take more steps forward despite of our tight schedules :-)

        But how about sirs Mocho and Dreamhaus?

I guess it would be better if we set a time table. We may not wait for a keyboard player to join in. Instead we may just try to minimize numbers that require keys. Sir Bryan may likewise select the songs :wink:

3 bands, 3 sets? If I got you right then the load will be lighter bro.  :wink: we are barely two (2) months away and yes you're the only drummer, I'm not sure with Sir Mocho..

3 bands, 3 sets? If I got you right then the load will be lighter bro.  :wink: we are barely two (2) months away and yes you're the only drummer, I'm not sure with Sir Mocho..

in my estimation, brokensauce can play about 6-8 songs.  we focus on playing our compositions, but we do cover '90s alternative songs in the '90s-themed production where we're semi-regular.  beatles songs may take a bit of practice, especially for our guitarist, but i think mastering 6 to 8 songs by december should be simple enough pag nagamay na naming lahat...

suggestion:  let three bands perform half of each set, tapos tayo-tayo ang magjajam for the second half of each set.  for example, brokensauce does half of set 2, playing about 7 or 8 songs.  our "all-star band" would then tackle the remaining songs in set 2, parang intermission of sorts before the next actual band takes the stage, and at the same time keeping the crowd entertained. 

as far as actual bands are concerned, we've got brokensauce and the satellites.  kakausapin ko ang brokensauce sa sabado pag nagrecording kami, but i'm almost sure they'll be up to it.  maybe we can audition for a third band sa gig announcements kung wala pa tayong mahanap, or kung medyo tight na kami (not to mention, find a bassist), baka pwedeng sumalang yung side project namin ni julius as the 3rd band...

sensya na kung medyo ngarag ang post ko...work day's over and (no pun intended) it's been a hard day's night!   :-D

There is an easier way to play Tomorrow Never Knows without destroying the integrity of the song. Which means there are no sound effects:

Intro : C5 (doesn't matter how many bars)
for the rest of the song : /C5/-/-/-/Bb5/F5/C5/-/

So it's an eight bar sequence and you can jam the whole song with it.

Let the singer sing a la John Lennon with a bad cold. Get roaring guitars to do them power chords, let the bass and drums retain the original patterns and you're off!

3.   Day Tripper- Bryan on Guitar
4.   If I Needed Someone- George on vocals
5.   Till There Was You- George on Guitar
6.   Please Please Me- Constipation on Harmonica
7.   From A window- Ninejuicyjulius on Guitar
8.   You Really Got A Hold On Me
9.   I Feel Fine- Constipation on Guitar
10.   I Should Have Known Better- Constipation on Harmonica, Bryan on Guitar
11.   Love Me Do- Bryan on Harmonica
12.   What You're Doin? Bryan on keys
13.   A World Without Love
14.   Drive My Car- Ninejuicyjulies on Guitar, Bryan on keys
15.  I'm Down

hmmm...lemme see.  copy-pasted this from slowhandpal's PM and made some minor changes.  bryan = burnsbhm, george = slowhandpal?  since we're going to be jamming in little more than 2 months from now, might as well be on first name basis with everyone involved.   :-D  constipation = eman, ninejuicyjulius = nine, este julius pala. :-D jammed with those two in short-lived side projects last year, while julius and i have this side project now that takes forever to be completed due to bassist problems... (although mukhang may nahanap na kami)

as for the set, i dropped "and i love her", "words of love" and "i don't want to see you again"...sorry, not too much of a fan of the mushy stuff, but we can leave a few in there.   :-)  and i added "a world without love" para may lennon-mccartney song pa rin tayo performed by peter & gordon...i was thinking "i go to pieces" but decided to go with something slightly more upbeat. then we have "you really got a hold on me", which is a good way to close out the first half, as everyone can join in the singing/screaming.  i personally like the zombies' version better, though.  the last addition to this list (which was mostly co-compiled by slowhandpal) is "i'm down", which would make a great set closer.  dun talaga tayo pwedeng magwala sa first set...

nga pala, on the topic of first name basis...family, friends, girlfriend and bandmates call me enzo.  upset bosses call me "hoy lorenzo late ka na naman sa trabaho!"   :lol:

as for the set, i dropped "and i love her", "words of love" and "i don't want to see you again"...sorry, not too much of a fan of the mushy stuff, but we can leave a few in there.   :-)  and i added "a world without love" para may lennon-mccartney song pa rin tayo performed by peter & gordon...i was thinking "i go to pieces" but decided to go with something slightly more upbeat. then we have "you really got a hold on me", which is a good way to close out the first half, as everyone can join in the singing/screaming.  i personally like the zombies' version better, though.  the last addition to this list (which was mostly co-compiled by slowhandpal) is "i'm down", which would make a great set closer.  dun talaga tayo pwedeng magwala sa first set...

nga pala, on the topic of first name basis...family, friends, girlfriend and bandmates call me enzo.  upset bosses call me "hoy lorenzo late ka na naman sa trabaho!"   :lol:

okay, then if Bryan says yes to this, It's a go for us Beatle Maniacs

in my estimation, brokensauce can play about 6-8 songs. we focus on playing our compositions, but we do cover '90s alternative songs in the '90s-themed production where we're semi-regular.  beatles songs may take a bit of practice, especially for our guitarist, but i think mastering 6 to 8 songs by december should be simple enough pag nagamay na naming lahat...

suggestion:  let three bands perform half of each set, tapos tayo-tayo ang magjajam for the second half of each set.  for example, brokensauce does half of set 2, playing about 7 or 8 songs.  our "all-star band" would then tackle the remaining songs in set 2, parang intermission of sorts before the next actual band takes the stage, and at the same time keeping the crowd entertained.  

as far as actual bands are concerned, we've got brokensauce and the satellites.  kakausapin ko ang brokensauce sa sabado pag nagrecording kami, but i'm almost sure they'll be up to it.  maybe we can audition for a third band sa gig announcements kung wala pa tayong mahanap, or kung medyo tight na kami (not to mention, find a bassist), baka pwedeng sumalang yung side project namin ni julius as the 3rd band...

sensya na kung medyo ngarag ang post ko...work day's over and (no pun intended) it's been a hard day's night!   :-D

With Four Bands participating playing 6 to 8 songs that would mean 24 to 32 songs out of the 45 numbers we've chosen, that would also mean much easier load for the All Star to concentrate on the remaining 13 to 19 songs. The songs on sets 2 & 3 and the Finale needs much preferential attention for us.

Not so worried about the Bass player because the Sattelites Bassist is very very good.. not to mention their Lead vocalist can really sing ala John Lennon.

What do you think Sir Bryan?

Siprahan na :-D saan nga pala ensayo? i would like to suggest kung ok lang mga guys na hatiin natin ang ensayo isang acoustic session at electric setup para narin mas malinis at makahabol lahat. Yung acoustic set-up maybe pwede na sigurong gawin iyun sa bahay ng available na miyembro dala nalang ng gamit,amp acoustic, beatbox, tambourine, etc siyepmre kkk or patak patak sa meryenda :-D. Mas makakatipid sa babayaran sa studio kung mag-rerent pa tayo atleast malinis na kapag sa studio na tayo at diretso tugtug nalang wala ng puro ulit at sabet kasi kamado na sa acoustic palang.

This is only my humble opinion guys please share your other suggestions. :-)

Magandang idea to bro. Hmmm. di na lang seguro ako sasali sa All Starr kasi tatlo din naman kayong guitarists to give more space to you guys, Bryan, Eman, Julius. Mas kailangan natin ang Bass at Keyboard player. Pero sasali ako sa Finale

Obet is based in Singapore so malabong makasama siya. As for the reggae band, sorry but I have to pass that proposal. I was really thinking of doing the songs strictly adhering to the original feel or arrangements. If we will be forced to get outsiders as bassist and keyboardist, then I guess let us just as much as possible stick to the originals. Besides it's John Lennon's anniversary we are commemorating so let us pay tribute by playing Beatles as Beatles.

Ok, let me make it clear again that if push comes to shove and we cannot get a keyboardist, just tell me and I will be stepping down as guitar player. I can play the keyboards on MOST tracks that really needs one. No problem on songs that demands a slide guitar (My Sweet Lord, Free As A Bird), I can handle that one.

May I request to drop Please Please Me? Because I don't have a harmonica that fits in E Major. Unless you are willing to transpose the song to F.

Siguro as a sign of courtesy and humility, may I humbly suggest also one of you guitar players to take up the bass instead?

Thats good :-) anyway pwede kita pahiramin ng diatonic blues harmonica key of E or kung gusto mo ako nalang din gagawa nun sa harmonica kung ok sayo para less kanalang trabaho, keyboard and guitar kanalng i believe mas matrabaho yung part mo. And pwede din ako magbass sa mga ilang kanta and i can sing and backup din. Mas madali sa akin ang lead guitar kasi yun ang porte ko but pwede din naman akong mag-adjust on my part sa ibang instrument specially Harmonica, bass, and ukelele kung kailangan talaga.

Guys tulungan tayo para maganda ang kalalabasan nitong project im willing to commit minsan lang naman ito eh :-)

wow, dami palang nangyari dito nung weekend...i'm not able to check PM all the time, much less post on the weekends, since di ako makaconnect ng matino sa PM sa bahay...

anyway, if i may suggest, the (currently) nameless garage rock band me and julius have can take the 1st set, or any set with songs from 1964 to 1966, while brokensauce takes whatever set includes "i'm so tired".  all three members of brokensauce used to be in a reggae covers band a couple years back, at kasama sa covers list namin ang "i'm so tired"...

practice studio?  familiar ako sa mga studio sa cubao area.  ewan ko kung ok lang sa inyo, pero taga-cavite ako at sanay na akong magcommute to cubao to practice.  gig studio in ermin garcia is okay, P150 per hour and as far as i can remember, matino pa ang gamit nila nung last time namin dun.  cymbals lang ang problema, but my puny little 16" crash can take care of that for now.  yung drawback lang sa gig (and its sister studio KNR), medyo sabog magschedule ang mga tao dun.  we've had our practices moved without notice several times, or even cancelled dahil sa scheduling snafu.  pwede rin sa soundchamber sa la salle street (aurora boulevard, tapos turn left bago mag-toyota), P100 per hour pero medyo out of the way...maganda din gamit dun.

i'd also suggest we have a committee meeting sometime in the next two weeks.  di ako pwede october 2, may gig kami sa gabi, at samahan ko pa si gf sa hs reunion niya.  october 9 naman, recording tapos (sana) first practice ng garage band.  sundays, pwede ako...either before or after rehearsal with brokensauce, preferably after para pwede nang mag-inuman...   :-D  or october 16, i don't think i'm doing anything that day...

So Ok, here's a rough draft of what's gonna happen:

This will be a family affair - pang general patronage ika nga. Kasi aside from entertaining the old guys, we are educating the young ones about the greatest rock band that ever existed. So let us cut the rock star attitude and this will be very friendly.

There will be spiels in between songs so that would facilitate the learning for the kids.

Kung sakali may naupahan nang lugar for the event, let us save a small space for memorabilia and collectables (records, cds, books, dolls, scotch tape boards - Beatles adhesive tape, old biscuits - naalala niyo pa ba yung beatles marie biscuits, DVDs, posters, comic books, instrument related ads and endorsements, etc...)

I belileve the musicians should dress accordingly. Bawal ang jeans, t shirts and rubber shoes, let us dress like it's a real professional gig.

Sa Food, I suggest pot luck, sana may mga PM members who can help out sa food and drinks.

Lastly, let us bring some of our kids, para malaman nila what are they being deprived of the stupid radio format we have now.

WE are now raising a generation of professional musicians who have never heard of the Beatles!

great idea, sir bryan.   :-D  any suggestions where to hold the event?  

finally, after some 8 years, a gig/large-scale jamming EB na walang alak...that's actually nice, for a change.  i've been quite wary about mixing booze and music recently...back in the day it would actually help me perform better and release anxiety, pero 32 na ako eh, and i'm getting older, fatter (in the belly), and sometimes unhealthier...i can still perform well while intoxicated, but for the life of me, i can't write those drunken melodies anymore...  :lol:

the last booze-less event i played was the pinoyexchange "PiMP" (pinoyexchange musician's pool) EB nung mga 2001 pa.  the mods promised us na may inuman after the jamming...pero nalasing lang kami sa iced tea...   :lol:  di rin natuloy yung PiMP, nadismaya ata ang mga mods ng PEx...since puro bata pa kami nun, all we wanted to do was jam, and not learn about the finer side of the music business...but i digress.  bryan, kudos to you for suggesting that this be a gig/jamming EB with a nice twist to it.  di pa ako family man like some of the others in this thread, but i will be in a couple years pag kasal na kami ni gf, and i'm all for letting future generations learn about the music from our parents' times...particularly the beatles.  iba talaga ang music dati...

pero ewan ko lang, siguro overkill yung sa stage attire.  no t-shirts, shorts and rubber shoes is cool with me, but can we still wear jeans?  just a suggestion...

Great Idea Bro! 8-)
I've been a Church Musician in the last dozen years and I always wear descent attire. I have no problem with that but to our friends who are not used to wearing one may not be as comfortable as we are.. I think wearing Beatles T shirts, clean rubber shoes & Jeans is cool. When I attended The Beatlefest with Pete Best lately it adds this joyous feeling seeing guys in Beatles Shirts, caps and bags.. shaking hands and exchanging smiles.

Aside from the venue, are we going to do this on the 8th of December? which is Thursday or on the 9th (which is also John Lennon's Favorite number). By the way when John was shot dead by Mark David Chapman it was already December 9 in his hometown Liverpool.

I believe the musicians should dress accordingly. Bawal ang jeans, t shirts and rubber shoes, let us dress like it's a real professional gig.


OMG. Do I smell Beatle-cosplay? Like! :lol: :lol: :lol:

Hindi naman siguro to this extent. Ayaw ko lang kasi ng sobrang casual say parang nanggaling lang kung saan saan. What I mean is dress for the occasion.

may mga nasuggest na ba ang ibang mga banda?  if we could shuffle things a bit, i'd prefer that brokensauce gets the later-period stuff na madaming solo...para pasok sa forte ng gitarista namin.  i'd suggest we play "while my guitar gently weeps", "back in the USSR", possibly "come together"...and pwede kayang isingit ang "revolution"?  pero for sure gugustuhin naming tugtugin ang "i'm so tired". 

maybe if we could hold a meeting before the event, like a month and a half at least prior to the event, all band representatives can meet para kami na lang ang pipili ng tutugtugin namin. 

what do you guys think?   :-D

The All Starr Band will be playing 21 songs bro all in all, pwede mo sya hilain for 1 or 2 songs or I suggest pwede rin naman segurong All Starr na lang ang buong set 1 at kayo sa latter part total di pa naman ata kayo nag uumpisa mag ensayo.Three (3) times na kasi ng rehearse ang Rubber Souls bro despite of our hectic sked in our jobs and living on different far places, we already devoted precious time.

He can also join us bro in While my guitar..for the Riffs & second solo.
He can also join in your Garage Band. And Your Bird Can Sing, Revolution, Helter Skelter, Everybodys Got something To Hide except Me and My Monkey are good replacement for Lovely Rita & It's All Too Much.IMHO

Ang Sattelites nakita na nila line up nila at mag uumpisa na rin daw sila mag rehearse nag text ang vocalist nila sakin last sunday or monday.

You're right bro a Meeting is really important. Sir Bryan also suggested that. I think we should do it ASAP because we have other things to discuss like the Venue, Date of Final Rehearsal etc..

if it's okay, switch na lang kami ng set list...brokensauce gets the garage band's set, and vice versa.  i'll also discuss it with the guys on saturday, after the gig.   :-)  feeling ko mas gugustuhin nila yung set na naassign sa garage band, and i think the revolver/sgt. pepper's set would be a better fit for brokensauce.  

hmmmm...saturdays?  let me see kung pwede ako this month.  alam ko wala akong ginagawa ng october 16, but october 9 and 23 are recording days for brokensauce.  oct. 9 is also tentative first practice day for the side band.  di rin pwede this saturday kasi may gig kami.

OT muna...hehe.   :-D  yup, album na yan, ETA early 2011.  tingnan natin pare...nasa 55-60% stage pa lang kami ng recording, with 6 songs out of a potential 11. 

BTT, mukhang common sa atin ang saturdays.  si julius din, pwede pag saturdays, pagkatapos ng practice ng main band niya.  regarding practice para sa all-starr band, di ako pwede pag weekdays.  not until november, pag regular ako, at sana maregular ako sa work!   :-D

Ok din yon Sir Enzo dahil magkasama naman kayo ni Julius. Tapos yon nga IMHO pwede pamalit ang Revolution, Helter Skelter, Everybodys Got Something to Hide Except for Me & my Monkey sa Lovely Rita at It's All Too Much.. Sabi mo nga better fitted sya dahil Metal Guitarist nga pala guitarist mo.

hmmmm...saturdays?  let me see kung pwede ako this month.  alam ko wala akong ginagawa ng october 16, but october 9 and 23 are recording days for brokensauce.  oct. 9 is also tentative first practice day for the side band.  di rin pwede this saturday kasi may gig kami.

salamat, salamat.   :-D  it's going to be an indie release, btw.  still trying to go about how to distribute the album...may EP kami nung december 2008 pero puro mga katropa lang namin ang bumili...   :-(  but we'll cross the bridge when we get there.

brokensauce is the literal english translation of balisawsaw.  derived from a PM thread sa KKK, may nagtanong kung ano ang english ng balisawsaw, tapos sagot naman ni marzi "brokensauce", then "brokendip".  tawa ako ng tawa nung nakita ko yung thread, and i immediately thought that "brokensauce", despite the similarity in name to the established broken social scene, would make a good band name. 

BTT, yung sa "i'm so tired" pala, can all three of us in brokensauce join the all starr band for old times' sake, only for that number?  sensya na sa kulit, but that song used to be in our set list when we were all in a previous band together...our vox/bassist is excited to sing it in the event.   :-D

otherwise i think i'm all good with the set lists for my respective bands.   i think we need more white album stuff in there...i'd go with "revolution" and "helter skelter" to replace "lovely rita" and "it's all too much"...

Kung ako tatanugin ok lang, I don't see a reason not to say yes. (Mas ok seguro before the Finale: Golden slumbers/ Carry That Weight/ The End para anjan na kayo sa stage aakyat na lang ang ibang performers after I'm So Tired.) Jaja pagod na rin tayo lahat non!At least kabisado nyo na talaga yan tsaka dalawa kasi Ikaw namn ang Drummer din ng All Starr Band e. Jaja John Lennon ka pala talaga, Ako naman George Harrison kaya While My Guitar talaga ang Favorite ko.

Title: Re: anything about the Beatles ...
Post by: slowhandpal on October 03, 2010, 06:42:23 AM
So Ok, here's a rough draft of what's gonna happen:

This will be a family affair - pang general patronage ika nga. Kasi aside from entertaining the old guys, we are educating the young ones about the greatest rock band that ever existed. So let us cut the rock star attitude and this will be very friendly.

There will be spiels in between songs so that would facilitate the learning for the kids.

Kung sakali may naupahan nang lugar for the event, let us save a small space for memorabilia and collectables (records, cds, books, dolls, scotch tape boards - Beatles adhesive tape, old biscuits - naalala niyo pa ba yung beatles marie biscuits, DVDs, posters, comic books, instrument related ads and endorsements, etc...)

I belileve the musicians should dress accordingly. Bawal ang jeans, t shirts and rubber shoes, let us dress like it's a real professional gig.

Sa Food, I suggest pot luck, sana may mga PM members who can help out sa food and drinks.

Lastly, let us bring some of our kids, para malaman nila what are they being deprived of the stupid radio format we have now.

WE are now raising a generation of professional musicians who have never heard of the Beatles!

Slowly but surely I am raising my son with the music of The Beatles and he responded very well. He presently plays bass at school and guitar in church. When we watched Pete Best he can't wait to see us guys this December.

this is a strange suggestion for someone from the south, pero mas gusto ko sa cubao expo.  we can hold the meeting at alan's grill...wag sa mogwai, mas madalas ako dun but i don't think it'll be conducive for this type of meeting. 

kung sa MOA naman, masyadong matao, too many distractions.  makati, on the other hand...is a pretty big place, but i don't know of any locations with good enough ambiance and affordable food/drinks where we can discuss the event...

Pwede kayo na lang sa All Starr mag uusap usap, pwede ring isama na natin sa meeting.
Sana maka hanap tayo keyboard player for the All Starr kasi  guitar ang first love din ni Bryan alam ko.
Pero kayang kaya lahat yan sa Bassist ng Sattelites. Pero mas ok pa din pag kayo lang sa All Starr para apat jaja Beatles na Beatles! Naks! USap na kayo ni Julius bro, not by songs but by set para wala ng palitan pa instrumento. Kung sakali lang na meron di na mahahabol siprahin(Bass) sabihin na sa Sattelites, the earlier the better.

No such documentations exist. If ever that happened, I would have known.

The only thing that connects Duran Duran from the Beatles would have to be the monicker "Fab Five". Which is a weak connection compared to Duran Duran's connection with Queen. Both their drummers are named "Roger Taylor."

medyo OT na tayo...but anyway, i know both queen and duran duran had a roger taylor but i didn't know they were BOTH drummers.  akala ko yung sa queen lang.  singing drummer din ba yung roger taylor ng duran duran?

talk about coincidence...

BTT,  here's one from wikipedia.

Quote
"Wannabe" debuted on the US Billboard Hot 100 Chart at number 11, the highest-ever debut by a British band in the US, beating the previous record held by The Beatles for "I Want to Hold Your Hand" and the joint highest entry for a debut act tying with Alanis Morissette.

...but have these overrated (although nice to look at back in the '90s) ladies placed five songs in the billboard top 5 all in one week?  i don't think so.   :-P

They paid due respect to the late great John Lennon 8-)



Yes, without a shadow of a doubt!

I read in the band's autobigraphy - Walk This Way - that they look up to these two bands as the standard in which they will be judged.

Their set up is very much like the stones especially the working relationship of Tyler and Perry - very much like Jagger and Richards. Gosh they even look like them.

Although they acknowledge that their setup is like the Stones, their songwriting is very much influenced by the Beatles.

Go ahead check out that book and it is very very evident that the evidence of those two bands are all over that book.

For a while they were called either the American Rolling Stones or the Heavy Metal Rolling Stones.

It makes me more proud growing with the Music of the Beatles since five.

But hey! Did The King of Pop take something away from our heroes? Calling our brothers in arms again.. :wink:

Thriller is the biggest selling album of all time. So I guess that takes away from the Beatles.

Thriller has the most A-side singles in a regular album with 7.

first of all, belated happy 70th to john winston lennon, later john ono lennon.   :-D

also, michael jackson bought out the lennon-mccartney catalog from paul mccartney in the '80s.  that's why relations between MJ and macca were quite strained for several years...

sorry i just noticed this now...the garage band's set is a bit on the mushy side, so can we swap "till there was you" and "a world without love" with "day tripper" and "drive my car"?  para mas balanced yung sets ng garage band at all-starr band sa part I...

Let's wait for Sirs Bryan & Eman bro for their comments because we have ample number of guitar players who undeniably wants to play fast songs also. And if I could remember it right, Sir Bryan personally suggested Day Tripper together with In My Life while Eman suggested Drive My Car. It just so happened that these two guys are very important in playing Harmonica for Love Me Do, Please Please Me & I Should Have Known Better and piano solo (Bryan) for In My Life.

Anyway, we are willing to play that one mushy song Till There Was You hence we have this Alternate Set List, considering the number of days left for us to rehearse etc. and the manpower we presently have. :wink:

we have 45 songs to play and we have 5 groups, so if divide it equally each group will play 9 songs, three each set.

hmmmm...i think i like the alternative set list better.   :-D  though i already gave the boys in the garage band the songs to study from the first list...

just to keep you guys updated, the garage band now has brokensauce's guitarist in its fold.  since i suggested "a world without love", is it okay if we switch it to "i wanna be your man" instead?  and can we do it using the rolling stones' more famous, less "wholesome" arrangement?

saka yung sa meeting naman, i think 4-6pm on saturday would be fine.  the garage band holds its first practice at 6-8pm and hopefully we can come up with a name...

this is a strange suggestion for someone from the south, pero mas gusto ko sa cubao expo.  we can hold the meeting at alan's grill...wag sa mogwai, mas madalas ako dun but i don't think it'll be conducive for this type of meeting. 

kung sa MOA naman, masyadong matao, too many distractions.  makati, on the other hand...is a pretty big place, but i don't know of any locations with good enough ambiance and affordable food/drinks where we can discuss the event...

First Official Meeting:

1. Venue- Cubao expo, Allan's Grill
2. Time- 4:00 to 6:oo p.m

over a cup of coffee  :wink: where's this place exactly bro? Malapit ba sa Gateway?

sounds good.   :-)  cubao expo is nearer to ali mall...eto yung dating fiesta carnival.  sa tabi ng mga provincial bus stations.  kung familiar kayo sa genre bar, alan's grill is in the ground floor.  more of a beer and filipino food place, though.  dunno the prices of their non-alcoholic beverages...

I guess our attendance tomorrow to our first official meeting will be the determining factor of the success of this endeavour. Complete attendance is highly solicited.

By the way, The Sattelites Band frontman has confirmed attendance. Godspeed

si jojo/the_godfather ng pm?  nice.   :-D  konting trivia...siya yung unang frontman ng brokensauce, pero tulad ko madami siyang banda kaya di na nakapagcommit.  that's how brokensauce evolved into a rock/alternative band with multiple influences rather than a britpop-influenced band.   :-)  good to know he'll be joining us!

Title: Re: anything about the Beatles ...
Post by: burnsbhm on October 17, 2010, 09:04:57 PM
Ok, it was only me and George who was present at the meeting nevertheless we have come up with some great ideas. The most important (and ironically the easiest to deal with) is the music. As Slowhandpal/George has just mentioned, I request all the performers to notify anyone of us or better yet post any message here in PM to confirm the songs proposed to the respective bands. I will be willing to play keyboards to the bands who needed it especially if it deemed necessary. If the  bands discovered they cannot handle a tune, please notify us.

Here are the other things that needs to be addressed:
1. Official venue - where do we held this event? Someone suggested the bar that mostly frequented by the moderators of PM. May I request anyone who frequent this thread who are close to the moderators to negotiate the venue. I was told this is near Quezon Institute in E. Rodriguez.

2. Sound System/Instruments - if the venue proposed has its own sound system then that would be less thing to worry about. But if that problem arises, I might make some contacts that we can get affordable equipment. We must remember that Christmas is fast approaching at malakas ngayon ang rentahan ng instrumento. But we have to get the exact location of the venue first before I scout for instruments. And we have to secure the venue FAST kasi mahal na ang rentahan ng instrumento pagdating ng Late November.

3. Food - pot luck or venue supplied? Since this is a family orientated event, it would be nice to prepare food that will be catered for every age. Maybe a few beers here and there but please no chance for debauchery!

4. Memorabilia - this would be voluntary, although putting your Beatles related memorabilia will enhance the mood of the event. Records, cds, posters, t-shirt, photos, books, magazines, concert tickets, dvd covers etc....Naalala niyo pa ba yung Beatles Marie biscuits? Yung Beatles adhesive tape? Or baka meron diyan may nagtago ng Aladdin Beatles tin lunch box! Ilabas niyo na sa event! Although of course hindi mahahawakan yan, we will find a way for those items to be strictly for viewing only.

5. Committees - Since there are at least 4 of us who agreed to come to yesterday's meeting, I suggest we divide the labor. One for the program, one for the logistics, one for the getting the people and one for the overseeing of funds. Now one of the major goal here is to have this event successful with the least amount of expense. We came here for the music and friendship so hindi naman dapat maging magarbo. Which leads us to the question we cannot answer - at least George and Me:\

6. FUNDS - I have a feeling for this event to be successful, we need to raise at most P80,000.00 This is already an outrageous amount for a small event but we can never tell....I have a feeling a sponsor is a necessity unless the venue and the instruments can be rented for free. I'm sure hindi naman natin babayaran ang mga bands. But I'm sure you know na kailangan na may pondo rin kahit papaano.

Since dalawa lang kami ni George kahapon, I think there are other suggestions can be had especially to the ones who weren't able to make it kahapon. I hope you can give us some ideas also.

Overall, the success of this even depends if we will all work for it.

wow...bumabagyo ng updates!   :lol:  sensya na at di ako nakahabol...weather and pc problems (installing a new one and reformatting twice dahil nagb-brownout) meant me and my girlfriend left imus at around 5-ish.  anyway, here's my feedback...

set list - can brokensauce and the garage band swap a couple songs?  pinraktis kasi ng garage band ang "i call your name" nung sabado, with yours truly on vocals and making john lennon very upset with that off-key singing...so brokensauce can get "day tripper" instead.  saka pwede rin magtrade ng "i'm down" with "what you're doing"?  we practiced "drive my car" as well and did pretty good considering we were missing our frontman, who's influenced by a lot of punk/hardcore bands and may do a better job anyway with "i'm down"...

official venue - trix (bassist of the unnamed garage band) suggested we can try genre bar.  less than 4K daw yung asking price nila, as compared to headstock, which is considerably pricier (almost twice as much) from what i heard...sadly i don't have contact to either establishment...

food/drinks - pwedeng uminom ng beer? yaaaaay!  :-D

committees - i hope i have enough time to help out here.  i have a night job, a sideline job, a girlfriend and two bands, possibly three by next month.  but maybe i can help by promoting the gig on facebook, PM and other mediums...

funds - can't really rely on me for that one...but i think P80,000 sounds way too much.  as it is, the asking price of the bars i mentioned is less than 10K.  we can promote the event via PM and other means and sell tickets to the event...but as promoters, that'll be our duty and not the bands'.  just wanted to touch base on that kasi opposed yung mga band ko sa ticket selling at remittance policies.


i suggest we hold another meeting on october 30, before undas.  or better yet, are you guys available october 28 or 29?  naka-leave ako on those dates...

I will make myself available again but I hope we will have full attendance come hell or high waters :wink:

I hope we can find sponsors for the venue & equipment. It is our main concern now.

You can do the Ringo version for I call your name bro  :wink:  Switching songs between your two Bands doesn't make any difference bro, I see no problem with that. We don't hear anything yet from Julius, Eman & Rey.

Joke lang ito ha? Because I have some problems with my eyes, I thought I saw "I have a nutjob, a sidejob, two girlfriends and a band"! Hehehehehe.........
But really my eyes are beginning to fail me....(oh no....)

Anyways, if the asking price is P4k for the place, can you please investigate further kung sino yung puwedeng tawagan sa place na yan? Also being a family oriented event, will allowing kids on the place be just fine?

As for beer, walang problema sa akin, what I am afraid of is mga uncalled for actuations caused by alcohol.

Sige, since what George and I talked about is only a surface thing, magkita ulit tayo. But (I hope I don't sound demanding) let us make ourselves available na talaga for this. October 28 might be ok with me..

Hi guys, medyo nagipon muna ako ng energy bago mag-reply dito mukhang dibdiban na ito hehehe anyway pwede ako sa october 28 pipilitin ko. About sa financing the production medyo out ako diyan, pwede kolang kayong tulungan sa promotion ng event and kung kinakailangang mag-ticket selling why not basta hindi naman ganun kamahal yung presyo ng ticket.
And about sa magbaba-bass, pwede akong mag-bass, kumanta, and lead guitarist and harmonica, gusto kolang malaman kung saang kanta ako papasok :-) basta sa ika-gagaan lang ng ensayo at line-up na mga kanta im very willing to commit  :-)

Kailan ang ensayo ng all-star band? kung magba-bass naman ako sa ibang kanta pwede din, meron akong bass guitar dito.

Siguro pagusapan na din nating kung sino ang mag-emcee sa program. :-)

About sa financing the production medyo out ako diyan, pwede kolang kayong tulungan sa promotion ng event and kung kinakailangang mag-ticket selling why not basta hindi naman ganun kamahal yung presyo ng ticket.
And about sa magbaba-bass, pwede akong mag-bass, kumanta, and lead guitarist and harmonica, gusto kolang malaman kung saang kanta ako papasok :-) basta sa ika-gagaan lang ng ensayo at line-up na mga kanta im very willing to commit  :-)

Kailan ang ensayo ng all-star band? kung magba-bass naman ako sa ibang kanta pwede din, meron akong bass guitar dito.

Siguro pagusapan na din nating kung sino ang mag-emcee sa program. :-)

Sir Bryan feels that I can be of help to the All Star Band. I can play bass on sets 1 and 2 but I prefer Set 1. Set 3 that's too much for me na. Mukang tayong dalawa lang pwede mag switch sa Bass at nag decline si Sir Julius lately. Pag usapan na rin natin sino kukuha sa vocals ni John at Paul (Kahit kayong dalawa na lng ni Julius, I'm more than happy singing George Harrison's part). :wink:

Joke lang ito ha? Because I have some problems with my eyes, I thought I saw "I have a nutjob, a sidejob, two girlfriends and a band"! Hehehehehe.........
But really my eyes are beginning to fail me....(oh no....)

Anyways, if the asking price is P4k for the place, can you please investigate further kung sino yung puwedeng tawagan sa place na yan? Also being a family oriented event, will allowing kids on the place be just fine?

As for beer, walang problema sa akin, what I am afraid of is mga uncalled for actuations caused by alcohol.

Sige, since what George and I talked about is only a surface thing, magkita ulit tayo. But (I hope I don't sound demanding) let us make ourselves available na talaga for this. October 28 might be ok with me..

nice one!   :lol:  my eyes have been failing me since grade school, so no offense taken there.   :-D

anyway, regarding the beer thing, i don't think we'll have any problem with "acting out" after having one too many.  i'm sure we're all responsible adults and the fact that kids will be in the venue will only make us more responsible with the alcohol.  and i'm speaking on behalf of my bandmates as well..you don't need to worry about any of us making a scene.  :-)

regarding the venue, kausapin ko si ulit yung bassist ng side band, at kung pwede tayong magkita ulit sa alan's on the 28th, we could all go upstairs and talk to the guys at genre bar.  :-)  hopefully we could make some progress there...and i believe genre is as family-friendly as alan's grill.  after all, they're located basically in the same area...

I thought it over and over last night, while I can play bass too for the All Star Band's 1st and/or 2nd set and Vocals for George Harrison's parts, it would be much much better if we'll get the Sattelite's Bass Player 'cause he sings too. Sa Finale na lang ako sasali sa All Star after Ad Lib ng "The End" the riff towards the ending of the song. Mas ok if pag uusapan nyo na ni Julius sino kukuha sa vocals ni John at Paul. Contingency measure lang ako, just in case di pwede ang Bassist ng sattelites.

Thanks a lot bro.. With your confirmation and generosity it's glad tidings to the All Star Band. It makes the load lighter now. And yes it's getting more exciting.  :wink:

Post by: slowhandpal on October 22, 2010, 06:14:33 AM
So there are only two(2) concerns left for the All Star Band.

1. Who will do John, Paul & George's vocal parts. Btw, Sattelites Bassist can sing too.

2. We MUST find a keyboard player.If one is too busy to rehearse all of the songs, kahit sa Finale number na lang. We're so blessed that Bryan can play other instruments too but it will be a huge mistake if we'll not see him play the licks in The End song, kaya we need to find a keyboard player KAHIT sa isang kanta na lang.

All Star Line up

1. Bryan- Guitars, Keys, Harmonica, back up vocals
2. Eman- Guitars, Harmonica, Lead & back up vocals
3. Enzo- Drums
4. Julius- Guitars, Lead & Back up vocals
5. Sattelites Bass Player


Balik muna ako as Contingency Measure 6 is already a crowd
 :-D
I suggest Eman, Julius & sattelites will do a jam to properly choose which songs they will be singing.

The Sattelites Band will not change the songs in the set and they are ready and excited, their front man texted me.

do you think it would be doable with a budget of less than 10k?  i'll try asking some of my friends who run productions (the good, no ticket selling kind of productions) to see what they can suggest...

If we can look for a venue for free it would mean a lot, If the venue also have the Equipment already (Mixers, 2 gtar amps, 3 mics, 1 bass amp & keyboard amp) that would mean a lot even more. :wink:

rental na lang ng keyboard/ synthesizer which is much easier to handle

All of us don't drink alcohol except for our bass player, but when he drinks it's only for the sake of drinking. He is very responsible person.

I was really hesitant to respond to this thread for so long but I hope George "Slowhandpal" will understand and forgive me if I divulge this.

The meeting did not push through last Thursday because of two main reasons:
1. Only three persons agreed to go
2. One of George's relatives passed away suddenly on the day of the meeting itself and he has to attend to that.

I hope we can reschedule a meeting where ALL concerned can go. I'm afraid we cannot come up with something meaningful if only some will attend.

May I ask all concerned if we can agree to meet again? This time all of us will go.

sige, resched natin.  saturday might be practice day for both bands, tapos may lakad pa ako ng hapon.  sunday could possibly be a practice day for brokensauce kung wala kaming practice ng saturday.  di ko lang alam kung kaya kong magfile ng leave this friday, kasi kelangan magsabi ka 2 weeks in advance...ako din, gusto ko matuloy yung 2nd meeting ASAP...

I'm sorry if I was one of the causes for our meeting's cancellation. My last uncle on my father side and Aunt in mother side passed away magkasunod na araw.. First things first kaya pasensya.. Now they're both flown and laid to rest in our homeland Mindanao.

Since Eman is free during night time, this week na natin ituloy meeting, 6 to 8pm. Uuwi kasi kami ni Mrs sa Bicol, Sat pm ang plano nya.. November na din kasi, we have no time to waste anymore..

Thanks Enzo & Bryan 8-)

Next week is fine with me. Wednes to fri, either of these dates (Nov. 10 to 12, 2010). So everybody will have time to prepare and squeeze their skeds. We should not let this chance pass. I believe if we let it slip away, this Dream is over. I don't think anything would still be possible.

Ok Nov. 12 na lang mga kapatid.

Perfect choice of date perhaps.  I got a call from Sir Papotz yesterday regarding our plan and he'll be on that day also most probably in headstock Bar. Better if we hold our meeting there so we can also see the place according to him. We can use the venue and the Equipment is already complete. He's got nice gear bros, amps. etc..

We should talk to Sir Papotz for more details, since of course the overhead cost is always a concern for bar owners.

We may also consider Dec. 15 since it's payday 8-)

The site is in E. Rodriguez Ave. corner Araneta Avenue.

Now at least we've got two choices at the Moment, HEadstock and the one mentioned by Sir Enzo nearby Allan's Grill Cubao Expo.

friday or saturday gig would be better, IMHO.  preferably wag middle of the week kasi may mga iba sa atin na may midshift or nightshift work, like myself and brokensauce's vox/bassist...though we'll have to reserve with papotz soon if we want a weekend sched, especially saturdays.

sir george, di ba pwede thursday?  para isang lakad na lang...sensya na, medyo gipit sa pera ngayon with recording sessions upcoming on the 13th and 20th...and the only way i know how to get to headstock is via cab.  but i do agree, mas ok kung sa headstock tayo magmemeet so everyone can see the venue.  i've seen it and we did play there before, and it looks ok, but let's have everyone judge for themselves...

but if we have no other choice but friday the 12th, i'll make myself available.   :-)

Paki banggit na lang kay Sir Papotz, anyway, kagabi ata pabalik na sya ng Manila. He was out of town when I got his call yesterday

Siprahan na :-D saan nga pala ensayo? i would like to suggest kung ok lang mga guys na hatiin natin ang ensayo isang acoustic session at electric setup para narin mas malinis at makahabol lahat. Yung acoustic set-up maybe pwede na sigurong gawin iyun sa bahay ng available na miyembro dala nalang ng gamit,amp acoustic, beatbox, tambourine, etc siyepmre kkk or patak patak sa meryenda :-D. Mas makakatipid sa babayaran sa studio kung mag-rerent pa tayo atleast malinis na kapag sa studio na tayo at diretso tugtug nalang wala ng puro ulit at sabet kasi kamado na sa acoustic palang.

This is only my humble opinion guys please share your other suggestions. :-)

One of you bros might have thought we're stranded in Sorsogon because of the Bulusan eruption but we we're not able to leave to visit my wife's relatives. My two year old daughter got sick last Thursday night and was confined at UMC till yesterday. Thanks be to God she's getting better now.

Been absent from the scene for days.

Anyway, our group may opt to change The Ballad of John and Yoko for another song and Sattelites may get it if Rey confirms per our text exchanges the last week. Our vocalist is having a hard time singing the way John does.

How about the other bands? Can we hear any development from All Star & Garrage Bands? WE can help each other, we only have to communicate per sir Bryan's previous admonitions.

God bless everyone.

regarding the garage band...we are having some lineup problems.  AWOL yung vocalist namin (he even cancelled his facebook account, apparently) while our lead guitarist, who's also with brokensauce, had to back out due to personal reasons.  so now we are a power trio without a vocalist...

we might opt to go acoustic, but these gremlins of lineup change (somehow, i always use this term) are multiplying in the rain...sana maayos namin ito so we can resume practice (and i do mean practice) next week, after brokensauce's long weekend where we'll be gigging and recording...

some announcements...

julius just texted me earlier in the day and advised me that due to a very hectic work sched, mukhang malabo na siya sa event.  he's still part of the garage band, though, and bryan will be sessioning for the meantime.  we have some lead guitarist prospects but still trying to decide on one...

nga pala bryan, tinatanong ni george kung game ka sa meeting sa headstock.  (technically) mamaya na yan, 6-8pm...

and apologies if i haven't gotten in touch with papotz yet.  been quite busy at work and with my raket...but will certainly touch base with him pag nagmeet na tayo...

Siprahan na :-D saan nga pala ensayo? i would like to suggest kung ok lang mga guys na hatiin natin ang ensayo isang acoustic session at electric setup para narin mas malinis at makahabol lahat. Yung acoustic set-up maybe pwede na sigurong gawin iyun sa bahay ng available na miyembro dala nalang ng gamit,amp acoustic, beatbox, tambourine, etc siyepmre kkk or patak patak sa meryenda :-D. Mas makakatipid sa babayaran sa studio kung mag-rerent pa tayo atleast malinis na kapag sa studio na tayo at diretso tugtug nalang wala ng puro ulit at sabet kasi kamado na sa acoustic palang.

This is only my humble opinion guys please share your other suggestions. :-)

Thanks :-)

Mukang All star na lang ang di pa nag e ensayo  :wink: been away for one week. It's good to be back bros

i'm back as well!  kakagaling ko lang sa leave and unfortunately di na naman natuloy yung meeting...

eto yung logistics update natin as of now...

1.  i've gotten contact info for ride 'n' roll, which is located near ateneo, along xavierville.  katabi ng tomato bomb.  it's a long distance number, though, and i can't promise i can call it from cavite.  i still live with my folks, and my mom isn't too happy about my frequent cellphone calls on the landline...  :lol:  ditto with papotz, based on what he told me and george, mas ok kung tawagan na lang siya due to his busy sched.  can anyone handle negotiations with headstock?

2.  as for ride 'n' roll, which is our 2nd option, taken na siya on dec. 11.  may production na sumasalang dun tuwing 2nd saturday of december...last saturday's gig included cuaderno diyes (their frontman handles the prod, btw) and the camerawalls, among others.  would a weekday gig be feasible in case di pwede sa dec. 11?  sa akin ok lang basta makapagfile ng leave. 

3.  di pwede yung vox/bassist ng brokensauce on or around december 18.

4.  is everyone in the all-star band ok to practice this saturday at gig studio, cubao?  set natin ng late afternoon or early evening on saturday...

Kahapon lang kami nadischarge ulit from the hospital. Pwede sana ako don sa Headstock at malapit lapit lang but Cubao was too far already for me..

I now suggest na iprioritize na ang rehearsal ng All Star at don na din pag uusapan ang lahat during breaks.

Re: Gig date, Pwede kami wag lang Dec. 8 & 10.

 Rehearsal namin ulit sa Sat. to lang kasi ang libreng araw ng grupo namin.

By the way we will replace Let it be with another song The Long & winding Road (Peter Frampton version) because our Black American Keyboard player have flown home and our White American drummer requested to change our name because he is also a member of the band based in CA, the Rubber Souls Band, he wants & suggested another name to me but I will consult the other guys of course.

@ Sir Enzo, I believe you're in the better position to negotiate with Papotz because you've been managing bands for some time. Tomorrow might be a better day to do it while at work because The Sattelites will be playing there tonight at Headstock. So at least nakita na ni Sir Papotz ang Banda mo at pati na rin Sattelites mamyang gabi.

Sorry I haven't been corresponding with you guys like before. Things have been very stressful for me. I cannot attend the rehearsal on Saturday as I have a business matter to deal with the whole day.

I am also sorry I cannot be active enough until this business matter gets to go on smoothly. I will still commit myself to the December 11 event and can still go to rehearsals provided everything is scheduled early.

The stress that I am in is pretty tough so please bear with me if I cannot be active for a while.

So sa Sunday na tayo sir Bryan  :wink:, technically I'm not a member of the All Star Band but I'll be there (rehearsal) Sunday p.m, para mapag uusapan na din ang lahat. All Star Band should start rehearsing now. I'll get in touch with Sattelites Bass player through Rey or Trxter through Enzo. If Julius can't really make it, then I'll take the job. I guess Eman will take John's vocals, The bassist whoever will be available will sing Paul's and me for George vocals only, Eman will play lead guitar.

Thanks a lot Enzo for our text exchanges athis p.m. Yes we'll carry the load altogether so it will be lighter on our minds for a common cause. Let's do some sacrifice.

Full attendance of the All star Band is a MUST everyone must attend. Let's finalize the place and time in a day or two. Sir Bryan, try to squeeze your sked for Sunday this early. If Sirs Enzo & Eman are available, then its a GO!

Post by: Endshiftresign! on November 17, 2010, 12:06:52 AM
after much deliberation i have decided to handle the business aspect exclusively and let george focus on the music.  my business management degree has got to get put to use somehow, even if it means becoming a production head nang hindi oras.  i guess that means cutting back on my sideline work, though i certainly hope this doesn't mean absenting myself from my main work.  here are a few points i'd like to raise...

1.  i will be getting in touch with papotz within the week...and maybe one or two alternative options.  regarding the long distance fees, i will reimburse my mom accordingly kasi malapit rin naman ang 13th month pay.    when i told her i may be heading a production, she actually thought i got promoted at work...i had to explain that it's a band thing...   :lol:
2.  my production shall be tentatively named "Zero831 Productions" because august 31 is my birthday.  i shall tentatively be in charge of making the posters and creating a facebook page for the prod, though i might get someone to help me out with the design.  i haven't designed anything on photoshop in quite a while...
3.  i have just filed for a leave on december 3 and 4, at wala talaga kaming pasok on november 25 and 26 due to the thanksgiving weekend.  that gives me extra time to focus on the event...
4.  george, since you're the music coordinator, boto ako sa suggestion mo na icover na lang namin ang "the ballad of john and yoko"..."real love" just doesn't fit into the garage band's sound, unless gawin naming mas mabigat.  speaking of that, we need to come up with an official name, and not keep calling ourselves "the garage band" or "the new chenelins", the latter being a joke name...former band ko kasi "the chenelins" and it's a play on led zeppelin's original name "the new yardbirds"...
5.  we will not force the bands to sell tickets, only encourage them to bring guests.  i don't, and never will believe in ticket selling as a band's responsibility, because that's what productions are for...to promote the gig and bring people to the gates...
6.  Zero831 Productions is currently a one-man operation though i might enlist my girlfriend's help (pero malabo kasi wala rin siyang experience sa prods and she's busy with work) or have some friends assist me.  but since we've got george and bryan willing to help for this event, which was their brainchild to begin with, are the two of you okay with sharing the profits, or (hopefully not the) losses? that may mean pitching in equal shares kung kelangan magbayad ng guarantee sa bar...

the two of you and everyone else involved will need to be patient...this is the very first event i am producing, even if it's always been in my plans to branch out into productions.  my connections and funds aren't as plentiful as some may think, and i'm even a rookie in the band management thing...i only manage brokensauce because i happen to be their drummer up to now, tapos tropa ang turing ko sa kanila...friends before bandmates, kumbaga.  i may have been reluctant at first to take the plunge, but i am grateful for this opportunity and hope i can play a big part in making this event a success...

@ Enzo

Thanks again & count me in (good times & bad times  :wink:). Let's carry that weigh/t all together now

I'll share with you the losses should it happen which I highly doubt. All we want right from the start is to commemorate the 30th Death Anniversary of John Lennon, meeting new friends & jam.

Pertaining Real Love, we might take it for the All Star Band as alternate just in case we have a number or two that may not be played rightly.

NOw that this is getting somewhere, we might as well schedule methodically the rehearsals. So if Sunday is the rehearsals, let us concentrate on one of the sets lang.

George, please just send me text messages on my Globe number. My Sun is temporarily out of order as the phone that housed it is broken.

a few updates...

regarding the prod, zero831 is now a one-man, one-woman team...my girlfriend gave her commitment via text to help out with ad copy, managing the facebook page, writing press releases and evaluating bands for future productions.  she's a writer and english teacher by profession, and enjoys rock music almost as much as i do (though more of a '90s rock fan than anything else) so i believe she'll excel in that area.  as for me, i manage the business and accounting side of things, or anything related to numbers, and of course screen bands.  after this event i hope we could specialize in '90s tribute nights since we both grew up around that time and enjoy the sounds of the '90s, or maybe even other decade-themed nights.  but it's time to focus on the present and hope this event is a solid start for the production...

eto naman yung mga suggestions ko for the event.  george, correct me if i'm wrong pero parang gusto mong magstage ng program, complete with opening remarks, opening prayers, closing remarks, the whole works.  while this may be a family event where kids are welcome to attend, i think it would be more conducive to the bands involved, as well as most of our adult guests, to do away with the program setting and just focus on the music.  the likes of ed sullivan and [sausage] clark have long become passe, so let's focus on the rock 'n' roll and limit things to a brief opening speech and some brief introductions before each band starts playing...what do you guys think?  :-)

try kong kausapin si papotz bukas ng hapon kung matapos ako ng maaga sa raket ko.  as for sunday practice, i'm available late afternoon or early evening.  baka may practice rin ang brokensauce sa sunday, so can we go first if ever?  i.e. kung 6-8pm kami let's do 3-5pm, leave one hour in between para makapag-usap tayo.  then brokensauce can go straight to cubao expo afterwards and enjoy our post-practice "refreshments"...   :lol:

 :wink: Pardon but you're mistaken bro.While it is true that I've been a guitar player/ Music Ministry Director for more than a dozen years, introducing the performers is the only thing that comes to my mind. Thanks for the concern but no worries bro the length of time playing 45 numbers in three sets with 5 bands is of prime consideration.

I'm focusing on the music right now for the All Star Band as Sir Enzo admonished me to. I'll give Eman a call today so I can finalize the Set list. Surely, the set list for the All Star shall slightly be changed since AS we all know we don't have a practising bass player. We have 3 guitar players, Bryan, Eman and me but the Sattelites Band will be glad to lend Xot(their bassist). While Bryan have agreed to play keys and harmonica, I'd still want to see him play his top loved instrument. The same with Eman.

 Another concern is the vocal blend for the voices of John, Paul & George so I'm thinking of getting Rey too for a set or two.  But we must get only one player from Sattelites for every set so that the All Star will sound different from the other band. The same reason why Trexter will not be enlisted although he is more than qualified.

 I'll discuss things first with Eman today and Bryan before I'll  finalize the final set list for the All star.

You're right brother but I'm afraid Time is no longer on our side. We may cut things short. We'll make the most of the little time we have.

Considering the things I've mentioned earlier the following will be the changes

All star Set List

1. I'd really love to see Enzo sing and play with a little help from my friends but if its too much for him we will replace the song together with the Sgt. Peppers(reprise). Hey Bull Dog(eman on Guitar) & Everybody's Got Something to hide except for me & my Monkey(Bryan on guitar) are good alternates.

2. We'll play Let It Be instead of My Sweet lord which Eman will sing being his favorite. Besides there are many stories to tell about that song.

3. I'm considering playing only one of these songs Love Me Do or I should have known better.

4. Something will be played (Pauls version on George's Tribute concert). Eman will do the ukelele and I may sing the song.

ummmm, well, it is.  my singing voice isn't even close to ringo's, unfortunately.  i'm more of a screamer (not the melodic type), but even that has suffered as of late due to a call center-induced increase in cigarette intake.  boto ako sa "sgt. pepper's (reprise)", pati "hey bulldog".   :-D

so does this mean we're going with a lean and mean set for the all star band?  with time being an issue, i think that may be necessary...

ok sir. Sgt. Pepper's(reprise) stays with Bryan on Lead Guitar. A Little Help From My Friends Will be replaced with Birth Day, after all its John Lennon's day.

Back in USSR goes to the Garage Band per Eman's request which is good news to The Garage Band, All Star Band may play Real Love but we'll try Band On The Run first.

The Core of the All Star Band is Bryan, Enzo & Eman but whooo :-o you might as well consider a name in your initials bros! Of Course they get a little help from their friends per set. George & Rey on set 1, Xot & Rey on set 2, Xot & George on set 3.

But then let's wait baka ok na din kay Papotz sa Headstock na lang tayo mag rehearsal.

yung noise curb...saan ba yun?  i don't mind practicing in qc, and in fact it would be better because brokensauce needs to practice the beatles songs as well.  i doubt i can reserve gig studio (where the still-unnamed garage band is practicing) for sunday, masyado na kasing short notice. 

another option, and one i strongly suggest, is soundchamber...sa la salle street siya, near aurora boulevard.  turn left bago mag-toyota aurora, then go straight until you see the studio, which has caricatures of stereotypical musicians (with elvis and michael jackson in said painting) on the wall outside.  P100/hour lang siya, at matino naman ang gamit.  yun lang di ko alam ang number niya.  kung ok kayong lahat sa soundchamber, please let me know ASAP para matext ko yung mga kabanda ko sa brokensauce.   sila yung nagrereserve kasi walang cell # ang soundchamber, landline lang.

another option, and one i strongly suggest, is soundchamber...sa la salle street siya, near aurora boulevard.  turn left bago mag-toyota aurora, then go straight until you see the studio, which has caricatures of stereotypical musicians (with elvis and michael jackson in said painting) on the wall outside.  P100/hour lang siya, at matino naman ang gamit.  yun lang di ko alam ang number niya.  kung ok kayong lahat sa soundchamber, please let me know ASAP para matext ko yung mga kabanda ko sa brokensauce.   sila yung nagrereserve kasi walang cell # ang soundchamber, landline lang.

Ok lang sakin yan sir, mas mura mas ok. hhmmmm. las salle near aurora blvd? not familiar with the place pero text text na lang.

Noise Curb is along E. Rodriguez Ave. near St. Lukes daw

for once i was glad i only had a few articles to write sa sideline ko.  spent most of the early afternoon and late morning trying to work out something...and woke up quite late in the process.    :-(  so far, naging productive yung usapan namin ni papotz.  pm ko na lang sa inyo (bryan & george) yung specifics...but for everyone's benefit, here are some of the key points...

1.  we have two options with headstock, and since they're booked solid for the first two weekends of december, we may have to play on sunday - one option i suggested was the afternoon of december 12, which papotz strongly discouraged.  and he has a point...maiinitan yung mga banda at guests, so it won't be comfortable.  yes, i know na taglamig dapat ngayon, but weather can be unpredictable...sobrang init nga kanina paguwi ko from work, parang summer lang...

2.  the second, and better option IMHO is december 19, sa gabi.  we can have the event run from 7pm to 1am.  most of the people i texted earlier today are okay with the 19th, though bryan mentioned it may be too far away from john lennon's death anniversary to be relevant.  i personally wouldn't mind the 19th, because given the limited time we have, beggars can't be choosy...besides, the 19th g
