40 YEARS AGO: JOHN LENNON AND PAUL MCCARTNEY REUNITE FOR ONLY POST-BEATLES SESSION - Sunday, March 30, 2014

The Beatles had partial studio reunions on official releases into the ’80s, but never with more than three members present — and never with Paul McCartney and John Lennon on the same session. That, as much as anything, seemed to be keeping the group apart. But the two former bandmates did, in fact, collaborate during one coke-fueled, slapdash night on March 28, 1974 at the Burbank Studios in Los Angeles. It was more than enough to fuel years of comeback rumors.

Hofner changes Violin Bass names - Saturday, March 29, 2014

Hofner has redesignated the model names of its famous Violin Bass to reflect the iconic bass's Beatles lineage. The three German-made models have been the cause of some confusion among McCartney connoisseurs due to the order in which they were issued. The new model names should put any debate to bed, and instead of having years associated with them have new 'evocative' titles that reflect the era they are associated with.
