Hilarious video of Paul McCartney and Beck being denied entry to Tyga's Grammy party. The cameraman obviously knew he was getting a great clip.

LOL!

My kids say think I'm boring by still listening to the Beatles sometime. But, it once proved useful. One time one of my kids was discussing a Kanye West video with her friends. They were all trying to figure out who the old man was. My kid told them. Their reaction was "Paul who?"

"'Holy Grail' of Beatles records sells for $110k"
A rare record dubbed the "Holy Grail" for Beatles collectors -- and hidden away for over five decades -- has sold at auction for £77,500 ($110,000).

The 10-inch vinyl, which features the first song John Lennon ever wrote -- "Hello Little Girl" -- was sold to an anonymous British collector on Tuesday.

It is one of the first times the legendary record has seen the light of day after Les Maguire, keyboard player with British band Gerry and the Pacemakers, had kept it stored in his attic...

While other budding musicians may well have been nursing hangovers on New Year's Day, 1962, the Beatles were attending an audition at Decca Records in west London.

The lads from Liverpool recorded 15 songs that day...

Wow!!!

http://www.beatlesauction.co.uk/

Back in 1964 the Lennon/McCartney song “It’s For You” was written especially for Cilla Black and Paul McCartney recorded a demo acetate that he sent round to the London Palladium for her to listen to. (This is mentioned in Cilla’s autobiography). Since then the whereabouts of this acetate has been unknown.

Well, until now that is.


http://www.telegraph.co.uk/music/news/m ... fter-50-y/
A long-lost Beatles record sent to Cilla Black has been rediscovered 52 years later.

Black had a UK Top-10 hit with the Lennon-McCartney penned It's for You in 1964 which was produced by George Martin at Abbey Road Studios.

The song peaked at number 7 in the charts but Paul McCartney had earlier that year recorded his own version, clocking in at just under two minutes, on a 7-inch Dick James demo disc and wanted Black to listen to it.

The acetate was delivered to the London Palladium where Black was performing at the time...

Cool sitar... you can see why Lennon didn't like his own voice

"Ron Howard's Beatles Doc 'Eight Days a Week': 10 Things We Learned"




"... footage taken at Liverpool's Cavern Club on August 22nd, 1962. Filmed in black and white by the Manchester-based Grenada Television network, it shows the band mere days after Ringo Starr became a full-time member."


@ 4:20: "The Beatles are said by sociologists to have a deeper meaning. Some say they are the authentic voice of the proletariat..."
"They're also credited with having saved the sagging British corduroy industry."

The band's first full-scale American tour in the late summer of 1964 brought them through the Deep South and face to face with segregation for the first time. The foursome was shocked by the practice, and vehemently opposed it.

McCartney made his feelings known to DJ Larry Kane, who accompanied the group on their tour. "It's a bit silly to segregate people," he said at the time. "I just think it's stupid. You can't treat other human beings like animals. That's the way we all feel, and that's the way people in England feel, because there's never any segregation in concerts and England – and if there was we wouldn't play 'em."

They made good on their vow when the tour reached Jacksonville, Florida. Seats at the Gator Bowl were to be separated by race, but the band refused to perform until they were assured that the audience would be mixed.

Neat that a high-profile Beatles documentary is playing theatrically, but 1) how many times can this story be told and 2) Ron Howard.

I came of age as a Beatles fan watching the wonderful documentary "The Compleat Beatles" on cable in the early 1980s, but I believe Paul disappeared that movie when "Anthology" came out.

The Dirty Mac in the Stones Rock and Roll Circus...


Lennon allegedly hated his middle name "Winston," and Jagger calling him that above ^ may have led to this scene, or vice versa...

Thanks for the videos and the flash from the past. Weren't we all a lot younger back then?

What's with the audience (seen for a few moments at the end of this first video) and their dress? A religious fashion statement?
