Who's kept Beatles jottings safe? Yeah, it's the taxman - Monday, May 27, 2013

At the end of a session, I would pick up their odd scraps of paper - the lyrics of a song they had been working on, scribbled on the back of an envelope or a telephone bill. I would ask if I could have it, as it might be useful to me in writing the band's biography (the only one they would ever authorise, as it turned out).

Although Sunday’s stop on McCartney’s “Out There” tour marks only his second Bluff City concert (he also played solo in 1993 at the Liberty Bowl), everyone in town, it seems, has a story to tell about the legendary musician.

Nearly everyone of a certain age can muster memories of "The Ed Sullivan Show" on one Sunday evening in February 1964.
