LIPA-Style School Opening in Spain

Thursday, February 21, 2013

The Liverpool Institute for the Performing Arts--Paul McCartney’s “Fame School” created in the building where he and George Harrison were students together—is getting a sister school in Spain.

According to the Liverpool Echo, the Institute of the Arts Barcelona (IAB), just like its Liverpool counterpart, will offer training in various performing arts disciplines at foundation, degree and post-graduate levels.

IAB was founded by former LIPA head of higher education Giles Auckland-Lewis, and will enroll its first students this September.

Mark Featherstone-Witty, LIPA’s founding principal and chief executive officer, said: “We’re absolutely delighted someone has embraced our philosophy and is starting another performing arts higher education institution – the right way."

Wasn't there a John, George and Ringo?

Again....its Paul, Paul, Paul and nothing but, weren't there FOUR Beatles? Wasn't 95% of their catalog written by John Lennon & Paul McCartney? Wasn't Lennon, the witty one, the darker composer with a strong blues infusion, the trouble maker, the irreverent iconoclast that prevented the Fabs from being a boring, banal pop band? It seems that year after year the Paul industry is slowly attempting to change what was the Beatles to Paul McCartney and his Liverpudlians, or Paul and the Coleopterans....this is a travesty. Stop the Paul huge can his ego be not that John is unable to put it in check? What would John say now?....can you imagine:-)
