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.
Each month Paul has been answering questions from his fans for the website's new feature 'You Gave Me The Answer'. This month's question comes from Amanda in the United States who asks: "What is the most inspirational thing someone has ever said to you?"
The unsigned record, Please Please Me, was described by the seller as being in excellent/near mint condition, and worthy of being in a museum.
Here's an excerpt from the sellers listing, describing the condition; "This is without doubt the one of the best examples of this record anywhere in the world! The vinyl surfaces are simply stunning and the black and gold labels are as good as you will ever see.
Julian Lennon doesn't do the hard sell anymore. Nearly 30 years after his brief, mini-Beatlemania-like brush with fame sparked by the release of his debut album, Valotte, the 50-year-old singer-songwriter has a new record out, Everything Changes, but he's not knocking himself out to shove it down people's throats.
Obviously not previously owned by any Tom, Dick or Harry, this 'garage found' 1965 Austin Mini Cooper Radford was once the property of Beatles manager Brian Epstein.
The car may be the only unrestored example with Beatles connections. After Epstein’s ownership, the Mini passed on to George Harrison’s brother, Peter Harrison.
JOHN LENNON was obsessed with writing a song better than SIR PAUL McCARTNEY's YESTERDAY and hoped IMAGINE would finally replace THE BEATLES' hit as the world's most-loved song.
The guitarist was consumed with his desire to pen a track as good as the famous song written by his Fab Four bandmate in the mid-1960s because so many fans mistakenly believed it was composed by Lennon.
The Beatles are bringing back their second feature film, Help!, on Blu-Ray with some special outtakes, interviews and trailers, as well as a 30-minute documentary on the making of the movie. In this exclusive clip, director Richard Lester, director of photography David Watkin, hair and make-up artist Betty Glasow and costume designer Julie Harris share their memories of working on Help!and offer candid tidbits about the experience.
In 1965, amateur photographer Marc Weinstein used a fake press pass to get police to escort him stage-side at the historic Beatles concert in Shea Stadium. Now, almost 50 years later, he has sold all 61 of the images he captured there for a whopping £30,000 (or about $45,500). The story involves a little bit of bravery, a little bit of trickery, and a lot of luck.
