I was just being myself’: Yoko Ono on letting loose at the Beatles’ Grammy shows
- Tuesday, February 25, 2014

Yoko Ono, in a Q&A with fans, addresses a couple of questions involving recent Beatles-related events she attended, including the 56th annual Grammy awards and the star-flecked 50th anniversary concert filmed a day later.

Ono attended both shows, which found Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr reuniting on stage. For Grammy night, they performed “Queenie Eye,” from McCartney’s current solo release New. For the anniversary event, they offered key Beatles songs apart, and then joined together for rousing versions of “Sgt. Pepper’s/With a Little Help From My Friends” and “Hey Jude.” Ono, widow of their late bandmate John Lennon, was surrounded at each performance by a group that included their son Sean, Starr and his wife Barbara, Joe Walsh of the Eagles and his wife (who is Barbara’s sister), and McCartney and his wife Nancy.

The Beatles Song Quote of the week

In my hour of darkness, she is standing right in front of me, speaking words of wisdom, let it be.

- The Beatles, Let It Be

   

 

 The Beatles 50 Years Ago Today :

The Beatles 50 Years Ago Today : March 2, 1964

Various locations today through March 6th - London to the West Country

Today, the Beatles became film actors for the first time, hurriedly joining the closed-shop actor's union Equity only minutes beforehand, on the platform at Paddington Station. They were proposed and seconded by Wilfrid Brambell and Norman Rossington, the two main support players in the group's debut feature film, which, for the moment was untitled. They were all gathered at Paddington for a purpose, of course, the first six day's shooting - Monday to Friday of this first week was to take place on a train. Hire of the train and the track facilities set back Proscenium Films, producer Walter Shenson's company, making the film for United Artists at a tidy sum of £600 per day, but the results were certainly worthwhile. At 8:30 this first day, amid scenes of Beatlemania at Paddinton Station, the train pulled out from Platform Five and headed for the West Country.

No actual shooting was done at Paddinton, however, the film's opening sequence, shot at a London station, was done instead at Marylebone. The Beatles decided after this first day that they could board the train more discreetly elsewhere, so for the remaining five days of shooting they embarked at Acton Main Line, in west London. Similarly, they never returned to Paddington in the evenings, jumping out at interim suburban stations like Acton Main Line, West Ealing, Westbourne Park and Hayes & Harlington, where they would be met by their chauffeur-driven car.
