Tony Palmer: he's with the band
- Wednesday, July 31, 2013

Tony Palmer was studying moral sciences at Cambridge University in the 1960s when a moderately famous band arrived in town. "I got a call to attend this press conference the Beatles were holding, to cover it for the college paper," he recalls. "They'd had a No 1 single or two by then, so they were very well known – but not yet intergalactic. Afterwards, John Lennon came up and asked me why I hadn't asked them any questions. I told him I found the whole thing pretty silly.

He laughed, and when I told him I was studying moral sciences, he thought me pretty silly, too. He wanted someone to show him around the university – I realised much later that he was very interested in education. So we meet up later and he's in disguise – a dreadful one, with a large fedora hat, long brown raincoat and fake beard.

Vintage Beatles Guitar Collection to ‘Invade’ Babbidge Library
- Tuesday, July 30, 2013

Anyone who's seen Paul McCartney on this year's Out There! world tour can tell you how much he loves being onstage. From Brazil to Poland to the U.S., he's delivered epic three-hour sets full of Beatles, Wings and solo classics, complete with lasers, pyrotechnics and a secondary stage that rises high above the crowd. "It's very exciting," McCartney tells Rolling Stone. "You've got the audience going crazy, and the age of the audience is wild, too – there's so many young people in there, digging it. Half of them know the words better than I do!"

A Magical History Tour - Beatling around LA
- Tuesday, July 30, 2013

This summer, I had the pleasure of visiting California for the first time. Although it was a family vacation with my girlfriend and her daughter, I did find the time to do a little bit of "Beatling about". Most of this was concentrated in the one day I spent with Gillian Lomax. Gillian is a Merseyside gal who has lived most of her adult life in the USA, following a hitch-hiking trip many years ago. A Beatles fan by heart, Gillian realised that Los Angeles was a city full of Beatles history, but without a Beatles tour. So she created one.

'When They Were Boys': A look back at the early days
of The Beatles

- Monday, July 29, 2013

The sun’s rays, on a lucky day, are making their way through the rooftops of Liverpool. The solitary figure moves quietly over the sidewalks, dropping off the fresh milk at his appointed rounds. He is hungry and, as always in the morning hours, filled with anxiety, a smidge of anger, and a touch of day- dreaming—the kind of fantastic dreams that fill us with hope as teenagers.

Come together

David John Paul George Ringo Lennon changed his name by deed poll, so it's hardly surprising that the man covered in Beatles tattoos would take the opportunity to warble John Lennon's 1970 solo album, Plastic Ono Band, in its entirety.

 The Beatles 50 Years Ago Today :

The Beatles 50 Years Ago Today : Saturday, August 3, 1963-

Night Cavern Club, Liverpool

After close to 300 Beatles appearances at the Cavern Club, spanning two and a half years, this was the last! The venue had played perhaps the vital role in preparing them for "The Big Time" and now that time had come. Bob Wooler, the Cavern Club compere, remembers Brian Epstein promising that one day the Beatles would be back, but it was not to be.

Tickets for the performance went on sale on July 21st at 1:30 pm and by 2:00 pm were sold out. The Beatles fee was £300 - The first time they played at the Cavern it was £5.
