Admittedly, there are some questionable band names out there. Nickelback. Limp Bizkit. Kajagoogoo. But The Beatles? The legendary Fab Four who shook up the music world in the 1960s like no other group? According to Rolling Stone's list of "The Thirteen Dumbest Band Names in Rock History," yes. The Beatles' name makes their bad-name list, published Monday.
A copy of Wings’ 1972 single ‘Hi, Hi, Hi’ / ‘C Moon’ signed by both Paul McCartney and his wife Linda has sold for $1,205 after 16 bids on eBay. The late Linda added “Happy New Year” to her inscription.

IT'S JULY 1, 1963 AND at London's Abbey Road Studios a song is recorded that will change the world, the lit fuse of the most extraordinary pop culture explosion of the 20th Century. It's called She Loves You, the work of a Liverpudlian four-piece three singles (the last, From Me To You, their first UK Number 1) and one album old, not yet thoroughly Fab, but already pretty damn great. The Beatles' 1963, already manic in the extreme, is about to propel them into a mind-blowing transmogrification. By the end of the year they will be legends, aliens, avatars. Weird hardly describes it, but there were upsides, of sorts...

Sir Paul McCartney didn't feel famous when he was in Wings. The 'Band on the Run' singer formed the rock band after being in The Beatles, and liked the fact when he started out, he wasn't treated like a famous person anymore.

Long before he picked up a guitar, John Lennon was a doodler. The cerebral Beatle, who spent three years at the Liverpool Art Institute before immersing himself in the music that would define his career, always loved drawing and sketching.
His line drawings, in pen, pencil or Japanese sumi ink, were the work of an impulsive creativity, bringing his philosophies, wry humor, playfulness and deep devotion to family to quick, inventive life.
Want to feel and look young when you’re 71? Paul McCartney has some tips for you. The Beatle speculated that the reason he’s looking so great can be attributed to his flesh-free diet and active love life. McCartney told VH1 radio, “I do do a bit of exercise but it’s not like heavy work out.
Paul will be playing tonight with his band at the Happel Stadium in Vienna, Austria as part of his all-new "Out There" tour. Fans travelling to the show – or even visiting Vienna in the coming months – may also be interested to learn that the first comprehensive exhibition of Linda's photography is currently showing at the Kunst Haus Wien museum in the city.
