In a new interview, Paul McCartney explained how writing ‘Here Today’ helped him cope with the death of John Lennon. “It was difficult for everyone in the world, ’cause he was such a loved character, and such a crazy guy. He was so special. It had hit me, so much so that I couldn’t really talk about it,” McCartney said of Lennon’s death to SiriusXM’s The Beatles Channel while discussing Tug Of War, which features ‘Here Today’.

McCartney explained: “I remember getting home from the studio on the day that we’d heard the news he died, and turning the TV on, and seeing people say, ‘Well, John Lennon was this,’ and, ‘What he was was this,’ and, ‘I remember meeting him then.’ It was like, ‘I don’t know, I can’t be one of those people. I can’t just go on TV and say what John meant to me.’ It was just too deep. It [was] just too much. I couldn’t put it into words.”

Paul said that “once the emotions had sort of settled a little bit”, he could begin the grieving process, and songwriting was key. ‘Here Today’ featured on 1982’s Tug Of War, and on the song, Macca imagines what he’d say to his late friend if he was still alive today.

On writing ‘Here Today’, McCartney recalled in the new interview: “I was in a building that would become my recording studio, and there were just a couple of little empty rooms upstairs. So, I found a room and just sat on the wooden floor in a corner with my guitar, and just started to play the opening chords to ‘Here Today’.”

Paul McCartney also revealed the line “the night we cried” referenced an evening they spent together in Key West, Florida.

He revealed: “For some reason, I think it was like a hurricane, something had been delayed, and we couldn’t play for a couple of days. So, we holed up in a little motel. So, what would we do? Well, we’d have a drink, and we would get drunk. We didn’t have a play, so we did. That night, we got drunk and started to get kind of emotional. It all came out.”

The former Beatle poignantly added: “But on the way to that, there was a lot of soul-searching. We told each other a few truths. ‘Well, I love you. I love you man.’ ‘Oh, I love that you said that. I love it.’ And we opened up. So, that was kind of special to me. I think that was really one of the only times that ever happened.”

Recently, during the premiere of Mary McCartney’s ‘If These Walls Could Sing,’ Ringo Starr shared how challenging it was for the band to find a label and how the Abbey Road Studios were there to save them.
 

“They have a little bit for us,” Ringo said as he discussed what was so special about the famous recording studio. “We were just blessed that we got a record deal because of George Martin, and he was working out of here because we were refused by many record labels. And George took a chance, and then we came here, and we did ‘Love Me Do,’ and we went on from there.”
“Then, a little later on, we tried a couple of other studios, but for the first six years, we were here. We knew the place, we felt the place, and it worked out really well.”

Ringo, who went largely unnoticed by members of the public, was seen looking out of the door of the store, later walking out laden with shopping bags.


 

 

 

 

The couple were seen arm in arm as they walked through London together for their shopping.


They also peered into a shop window as they enjoyed their Christmas outing in the city.

Later, Ringo walked over a zebra crossing road with Barbara.

Olivia Harrison spoke about one of her favourite spots in the city and her new book of poetry
Harrison has expressed joy about her return to Liverpool as she hopes to show a new side of him to fans.

Olivia married George - famed for penning the likes of Here Comes the Sun for the Fab Four - in 1978, and was with him until his death in 2001. Her collection of poems, Came the Lightening, was published last month (November 2022) but has been years in the making.

Olivia told she started writing in "2018 or 2019", but when 2021 came around - two decades on from George's death - she realised she could release a collection with one poem for each year without him.

She said: "Twenty years just seemed far too long. I don't know where that time went.

"We've curated his music, done a documentary, we've remastered his music - I wanted to do something from me. From my heart, something original.

"Every single poem gives an unknown side or some tiny little detail. Poetry, you can write anything; a leaf, the wind blowing, the look in his eye. Those tiny details. Really that's what the book is, it's about inner feelings and our core."

Olivia said the process has been "very satisfying" and wanted to express herself about the things she holds dear, including "nature, George, our life together. Emotions and grief".

She added: "It is very autobiographical, but in a different form. I think writing a story or book about my life like 'and then I did this, and that' would have been boring for me."

She also shed light on her creative process: "I started writing the last poem first. I was thinking about all the people who've lived in my house - it was built in the 1800s. It's an old house and I thought 'well, I'll be the next one out of here'. Then I just kept going."

Olivia struggled to pick a personal favourite from the book before settling on 'Treetime'. She said: "It sort of tells it all I think. I'm writing to George and about him, but it's really about me. What I'm feeling and what I experienced."

And what would her late husband think of her collection? Olivia thinks he may have lifted some lines.
"I think he'd really like it. I think he'd probably tease me to death about it. He would probably steal some lines from me. Sometimes I would write things and he'd say 'hey that's pretty good'."

Olivia will be reading from Came the Lightening on Wednesday, 14 December 2022, at the University of Liverpool's Tung Auditorium. It comes a month after she sat down in New York with legendary film director Martin Scorsese to discuss the book.



She said: "I'm always happy to come to Liverpool, it reminds me of George's aunts and uncles, brother and his father - I never met his mother - it's nice. I always feel good when I'm there. I knew so many people from Liverpool in George's life."

Olivia also has a soft spot for a particular part of the city centre - Hope Street . Former ECHO journalist and Beatles' press officer Derek Taylor actually gifted the couple its namesake: "When they were selling the big old iron street signs in Liverpool he bought Hope Street for us. It weighs a tonne, it's out in the garden."

While Olivia admits she wasn't expressing herself much creatively in her marriage, being with a Beatle certainly changed her perspective.

She called it "a different kind of life", she added: "There's that parallel thing - the person and the creativity. You can't separate that and have to really respect that creativity in a person. I understand that so much better now.

"A person who's going to be an artist, a writer or a singer, really has to make a commitment to that and can't get really distracted by other things in life. They really have to protect themselves from a lot of the mundane things in the world."

Liverpool University Press and the Institute of Popular Music, will hosted Cass in conversation with Dr Holly Tessler from the Department of Music entitled "Beatlemania: On informational cascades and spectacular success", examining the phenomenon that is Beatlemania and considering why some bands succeed and others fail.

Cass and Holly joined by Paul Abbott, co-host of  The Big Beatles Sort Out podcast, for a ‘desert island discs’ of Beatles solo material.


Cass is currently the Robert Walmsley University Professor at Harvard Law School. From 2009 to 2012, he was Administrator of the White House Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs in the Obama administration. He is also The New York Times best-selling author of The World According to Star Wars (2016) and Nudge (2008).


 

The Journal of Beatles Studies is co-edited by Holly Tessler (University of Liverpool) and Paul Long (Monash University) and is published by Liverpool University Press in association with the University of Liverpool and MA The Beatles, Music Industry and Heritage.


It is the first journal to establish The Beatles as an object of academic research, publishing original, rigorously researched essays and notes, as well as book and media reviews.

Speaking about the event, Dr Holly Tessler, Senior Lecturer in Music Industries at the University of Liverpool said: “I’m delighted to speak with Professor Sunstein about his recent article published in the Journal of Beatles Studies.

“That such an eminent legal scholar and author has undertaken research on the Beatles underscores just how central the group remains within contemporary popular music and culture as well as how important Liverpool and the University are as a global hub for Beatles scholarship."

Mary McCartney joined Good Day New York to address the constant death rumors involving her father.

Mary says one conspiracy theory involves the Abbey Road album cover, where Paul is seen being out of step with his bandmates and walking barefoot.

The theory states the white Volkswagen Beetle apparently has a number plate saying "28IF," suggesting Paul would have been 28 IF he had survived. Also, the four Beatles represent a funeral procession: George is the gravedigger, Paul is the corpse, Ringo is the congregation and John is the priest.


 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

"Dad's like, ‘It was a sunny day.’ He had sandals on and he just flipped off his sandals when they walked across because it was hot. But then, John Lennon's wearing a white suit. Think they were like, 'Oh, this means Paul is dead." she said.
Another example involves the song "Strawberry Fields Forever" being played backward. One theory suggests the words "I buried Paul" are spoken by Lennon in the final section of the song.

Mary also discussed her new Disney+ documentary "If These Walls Could Sing" which drops Dec. 16. 


 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The documentary will take viewers through nine decades of the world’s most famous recording studio – London’s Abbey Road Studios.

Mary says the studio has been a part of her life for as long as she can remember, a place her parents made seminal records.

The item joins a host of other memorabilia on display at the Mathew Street museum owned by Roag Best

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The porcelain loo, from Tittenhurst Park where Lennon lived with Yoko Ono from 1969 to 1971, was unveiled as the newest exhibit at the Liverpool Beatles Museum on Thursday.

It was loaned to the museum by Gary Honniball, who paid £1,000 for it at auction when Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan bought the estate in 1989 and sold its contents.
Museum owner Roag Best said: “He contacted us, told us that it was just sitting in his house, gathering dust, (and asked), ‘Would we like to put it on display in the museum?’

“We thought, ‘Well, it’s a bit quirky, it’s not what we’d normally display but who’s to say what you should and shouldn’t display, so, come on, we’ll give it a go’.”

The toilet bowl has a blue and white floral design.
Fans were invited to see the new exhibit but only found out it was Lennon’s toilet when it was unveiled.

The reveal was met with laughs, smiles and a comment of: “It’s John’s john.”

Two toilets were sold at auction from Tittenhurst Park, a 71-acre home sold to Ringo Starr after Lennon and Ono moved to New York.

Mr Best said the other toilet was sold more recently for £15,000.

The home in Sunninghill, Berkshire, was where Lennon composed Imagine.

Mr Best said: “I think visitors to the museum are going to think, ‘That’s really quirky,’ or ‘Are these guys mad?’

“But we like to do things outside the box so it fits in perfectly.

“It’s a very, very fancy loo and it’s possibly the most expensive loo in the country.”

The item joins a host of other memorabilia on display at the Mathew Street museum owned by Mr Best, who is the brother of the Beatles’ original drummer Pete.

On this day in history, Dec. 8, 1980, Beatles founder and music icon John Lennon murdered in NYC
'His music made people happy,' said a 12-year-old fan — site of Lennon's death is a pilgrimage destination today.
John Lennon, songwriting genius and founding member of The Beatles — a man who gifted the world with beautiful music that still rouses the human spirit long after his death — was murdered in New York City on this day in history, Dec. 8, 1980.

He was 40 years old.

"An unspeakable tragedy," legendary sports host Howard Cosell blurted in shock to the nation near midnight, interrupting the dramatic final seconds of a Monday Night Football broadcast.

"John Lennon, outside of his apartment building on the West Side of New York, the most famous perhaps of all the Beatles, shot twice in the back. Rushed to Roosevelt Hospital. Dead on arrival."

Cosell's dramatic words spoken on national television, decades before the internet spread news instantly, were the first that many Americans heard of the celebrated musician’s death. The world learned soon after initial reports that Lennon was actually shot four times.
Lennon ignited pop-culture mania with The Beatles in the 1960s.

He went on to a hugely successful career as solo artist and peace activist in the 1970s. 



 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

He was murdered outside his residence, The Dakota, on Manhattan’s Upper West Side at 10:50 p.m. and pronounced dead at the hospital 25 minutes later.
A deranged fan who received an autograph from John hours earlier, was pleaded guilty to Lennon’s murder in 1981.
An estimated 100,000 Beatles fans flooded The Dakota and Central Park in the hours after the tragedy for a tear-filled vigil that shut down auto traffic across several blocks of Manhattan.

The John Lennon vigil has never ended.
The Dakota’s gracious vaulted entrance, the spot where John Lennon was killed, is a daily global pilgrimage site today.

So, too, is a corner of Central Park across the street from the residence, dubbed Strawberry Fields in John Lennon’s honor.

"His music made people happy," Ethan Doyle, 12, of Philadelphia, told Fox News Digital on Wednesday outside the stately residence, accompanied by his mother, Monique, and brother Brodie, 9.

"This place radiates importance."


 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


Strawberry Fields is highlighted by a black-and-white tile mosaic on a Central Park pathway with the word "Imagine," a reference to one of Lennon's best-known solo tunes.

The sounds of Lennon and the other Beatles — Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Ringo Starr — as well as the quiet murmur of a parade of fans fill Strawberry Fields throughout the day, every day.

It's a testament to the power of John Lennon's music that it still attracts and resonates with the souls. 

"I play here four to five times a week and you see people silently crying to themselves," New York City musician Jules Avalon told Fox News Digital on Wednesday, between beautiful acoustic versions of Beatles' hits "All My Loving," "Blackbird" and "Strawberry Fields Forever."

 

The 72nd Street subway station, directly beneath The Dakota, boasts sky-blue tiles in John Lennon’s honor, also with the word "Imagine" in cloud white on one of the walls.

John and the Beatles burst onto the British music scene in 1963 and became a global sensation the following year.

The Beatles made their American debut in 1964, just 16 years before Lennon’s murder, at what's now the Ed Sullivan Theater on Broadway. It's located a mere 18 blocks south of The Dakota.

The Beatles broke up in 1970, after writing, recording and releasing scores of hit songs in less than a decade that are still recognized pop-culture standards today.
It was a profound period of artistic production and rarely if ever matched in music history.

"Abbey Road," a xclassic album released by The Beatles in 1969, was the 12th best-selling album of the year — here in 2022.

1981 John Lennon-Yoko Ono Issue of Rolling Stone Will Be Auctioned Off for Charity
with proceeds going to gun-violence prevention efforts. 


 


 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

On December 8, 1980 John Lennon welcomed photographer Annie Leibowitz into his home so she could take his photo for the cover of Rolling Stone. “The session took place in a bright, sunny room overlooking the park,” Yoko Ono recalled in 2004. “We were feeling comfortable because it was Annie, whom we respected and trusted, so John seemed not to have any problem taking off his clothes.”
 The image of a naked, vulnerable Lennon curled up next to a clothed Ono on their bed appeared on the January 22, 1981 cover without any text. The newsstands were flooded with Lennon tributes by then, but this haunting image stood out above all of them and became instantly iconic. In 2005, it was named the best magazine cover of the previous 40 years by the American Society of Magazine Editors.

The issue has become a coveted collector’s item over the past four decades and is very hard to find today in any condition, but a stack of copies was recently discovered in the Penske Media Archive. Rolling Stone is auctioning off one of them, signed by founder Jann Wenner, with 100 percent of the net proceeds going to gun-violence prevention efforts. Stored in a climate-controlled environment, the magazine has light wear and tear damage, along with a lightly bent lower right-hand corner from the original shipping back in 1981. The auction begins December 5 at 9:00 am ET and will be open for two weeks, with bids starting at $1,000. Head here for more information.

Lennon’s relationship with Rolling Stone, Robb Report’s sister publication, goes all the back to the inaugural issue in 1967 when a still image of the Beatle from the set of his movie How I Won The War appeared on the cover. A year later, Lennon gave the magazine a nude photo of himself with Ono for use on the cover, creating a firestorm of controversy that helped establish Rolling Stone as the premiere rock magazine of its time.

In 1970, Lennon sat down with Rolling Stone for an epic two-part interview where he looked back at the history of the Beatles and gave his account of the breakup for the very first time. “After Brian [Epstein] died, we collapsed,” Lennon said. “Paul took over and supposedly led us. But what is leading us, when we went round in circles? We broke up then. That was the disintegration.”
 “John, more purely than anybody else at the time, symbolized rock & roll,” Wenner said in 2017. “He was the most natural heir to Elvis. Everything he and Yoko did to support Rolling Stone added a little of their luster. It gave us credibility and authority.”

When Lennon returned after a long hiatus in 1980 to release Double Fantasy, he granted an in-depth interview to Jonathan Cott. For the cover image, Leibowitz thought back to their nude photos from 1968. She asked them to disrobe again and embrace each other. “John took his clothes off in a few seconds, but Yoko was very reluctant,” Leibowitz recalled. “She said, ‘I’ll take my shirt off, but not my pants.’ I was kinda disappointed, and I said, ‘Just leave everything on.’ We took one Polaroid [of them together on the bed], and the three of us knew it was profound right away.”

Later that night, Wenner was watching Monday Night Football when Howard Cosell told the world that Lennon had been murdered. Before he could even process the news, he ran out his door to join the growing throng of mourners outside the Dakota. “I stood there trying to absorb the awesome and frightening reality that such a man, a towering man, an irreplaceable genius of my times, to whom I owed a deep personal debt, had been murdered, and that I, and perhaps all of us, were in scary, dark waters,” Wenner wrote in his memoir Like a Rolling Stone. “My mind was filled with waves of sadness for Yoko and her son. And there I stood for hours.”

Over the next few weeks, the Rolling Stone editorial team worked around the clock to create an issue that traced Lennon’s entire life. The centerpiece was Jonathan Cott’s interview with Lennon and photos from the Leibowitz shoot. The photo team presented Wenner with a close-up image of Lennon’s head for the cover, but he saw the brilliance of the nude bed image and insisted they use it instead.

“It was unimaginably powerful, an echo of their Two Virgins photo, and now something like a foreshadowing of death and rebirth,” Wenner wrote. “It said all there was to say, and I decided there would be no headline or words. I didn’t like the idea of an advertisement on the back cover either and pulled it, replacing it with the lyrics to ‘Imagine’ in my own handwriting. Just before we went to press, I wrote a small note to John, promising to watch over Yoko and Sean; it was hidden in the binding. That was my secret, although Yoko somehow got wind of it 20 years later. John and Yoko had kept watch over Rolling Stone. Now those days were gone.”

Antiques Roadshow has been on the BBC for more than 40 years.
In that time, viewers have watched as people from near and far bringing their most prized possessions to be valuated by experts.

A guitar created quite a commotion when it was brought to a roadshow in 2019. Not just any guitar, the musical piece was once owned by John Lennon and George Harrison.



 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The prototype fretless guitar from the 1960s was owned by a musician who had been gifted it after impressing the two rockers with his skills. Expert Jon Baddeley decided that the instrument was the real deal after seeing it on a photograph, showing it in George's collection. The expert hailed the piece "by far the most expensive thing" he'd seen in his 25 years on the show. After the show, the guitar sold for £190,000.

Billy Idol understood from a young age that the life of a drummer wasn’t for him, thanks to Ringo Starr, as the singer revealed to BBC Radio 4.

Idol revealed that upon seeing the Beatles, the singer wanted to be like John and Paul rather than be Ringo.

“I didn’t ever have guitar lessons,” Idol said, recalling the early days of his career. “I just taught myself. It really was just a way for me to have something to sing to. I did try to learn the drums at one point, but then I soon realized Ringo was at the back, you know? John and Paul were at the front of the Beatles, so maybe it’s better to write the song and play guitar, you know?”

So, when Idol was deciding what he wanted as a performer, the dynamics of the Beatles helped him realize who he wanted to be as an artist. Billy Idol chose to front his act rather than play the drums and sit in the back. So, in a way, Ringo convinced him not to be a drummer but to be like Lennon and McCartney, standing at the front of the stage.

Today, November 30, marks 60 years since one of the most famous bands of all time performed at Earlestown Town Hall.  

In November 1962, as part of The Big Beat Show No. 2, The Beatles made their way to Newton-le-Willows to perform at the town hall, at a time when locals were unaware that this gig marked a historical moment to the town centre.

The Beatles had performed at The Cavern prior to their Earlestown gig, organised by the football section of the T and T Vicars Sports and Social Club. 

The gig followed the release of The Beatles' first single Love Me Do, released on October 5 1962, which became a hit in England.
 The day they made an appearance in Earlestown was the same day George Martin, record producer was at Abbey Road in London producing mono mixes of the Beatles' second single Please Please Me and Ask Me Why.

The single was released on January 11, 1963; marking a prominent moment in music history as the world was introduced to The Beatles.

The musician’s skills weren’t isolated to movie scores, as Cipriano – through his own work, as well as his tenure in the fabled Wrecking Crew collection of session musicians – contributed to a long list of famous rock and pop songs. The musician’s resume included material by the Monkees, Harry Nilsson, Randy Newman, Glen Cambell, Frank Zappa, Neil Diamond, Johnny Cash and the Beach Boys. Cipriano performed oboe on Frank Sinatra’s pensive “It Was a Very Good Year” and played woodwinds on Prince’s 1986 album Parade. He was also part of the band who played with Elvis Presley during the King’s 1968 comeback special, aired on NBC.

Gene Cipriano, a prolific session musician who performed on a long list of popular albums and major motion pictures, has died at the age of 94. The musician’s death was confirmed by his son, who told the Hollywood Reporter that Cipriano passed away on Nov. 12 of natural causes.

Cipriano was born into a musical family, his father having played on Broadway and with the New Haven Symphony. He’d take up the clarinet as a child, eventually becoming proficient in all woodwinds, including saxophone, oboe and flute. As a young adult, he’d relocate to California, where composer Henry Mancini enlisted Cipriano’s services for the TV series Peter Gunn.

“That got me started,” Cipriano recalled to the Television Academy in 2019, “because it became such a hot item and then all the other leaders said, 'Well, get me those guys who played with Henry Mancini.' And that got me rolling."

Cipriano’s cinematic career would span generations. With Mancini, he contributed to the scores for The Days of Wine and Roses (1962), Charade (1963) and The Hawaiians (1970). Cipriano’s clarinet work can also be heard on the famous tune “Baby Elephant Walk” from 1962’s Hatari!.

Other films to feature Cipriano’s playing included The Thomas Crown Affair (1968), West Side Story (1961), Cleopatra (1963), The Wild Bunch (1969), The French Connection (1971), The Karate Kid (1984), Up (2009) and many more.

Cipriano’s further career highlights included work alongside two former Beatles. He played on John Lennon’s 1975 album Rock ‘n’ Roll and jazz singer Peggy Lee’s 1974 LP Let’s Love (which Paul McCartney produced).

Thanks to his many contributions to film, TV, commercials and recorded music, Cipriano has unofficially been called the most recorded woodwind player in show business history.

A new documentary recounts the 1969 music festival in Toronto that featured John Lennon and the Plastic Ono Band, including Eric Clapton, headlining a lineup with other rock legends. The Toronto Rock and Roll Revival was a one-day event held on Sept. 13, four weeks after Woodstock. Lennon’s appearance was not publicly revealed until the last moment. The documentary, from director Ron Chapman, features never-before seen footage of the concert shot by renowned filmmaker D.A. Pennebaker. Following several film festival screenings, the film opens in Canada on Dec. 16. 

From the Nov. 2022 announcement: REVIVAL69: The Concert That Rocked the World is a behind-the-scenes story of how a little known, but life-altering music festival came together — against all odds. Young, scrappy concert promoter John Brower worked to make his Toronto Rock and Roll Revival into a one-day event, later coined in rock mythology as “the second most important event in rock & roll history.” And it almost didn’t happen. “The week before the show, tickets weren’t selling,” he says in the film. “All of a sudden the show is gonna be canceled.” Lennon’s appearance saved the day.

The festival featured such rock legends as Chuck Berry, Little Richard, Jerry Lee Lewis, Bo Diddley, the Alice Cooper Band backing Gene Vincent, and The Doors. But it was the 11th hour arrival of Lennon and the Plastic Ono Band that ignited a truly seminal moment for the 20,000 fans at Toronto’s Varsity Stadium.

Through exclusive conversations with iconic musicians Alice Cooper, Robbie Kreiger, Alan White, Geddy Lee, Chicago’s Danny Seraphine and Klaus Voormann, and over 60 minutes of archival footage and audio tapes, the documentary reveals the whirlwind chaos leading up to the festival — the biker gang, threat of cancellation, a mid-flight band rehearsal, and inexplicable luck that culminated in Lennon shedding the mantle of the Beatles and nervously taking the stage with Yoko Ono, Clapton, Voormann, and White.

The film offers rare, recently discovered behind-the-scenes Super 8 verité footage, and including never-before seen 16mm film of the concert shot by D.A. Pennebaker and his crew, told through the eyes of those who were there: the musicians, the mavericks behind the scenes, and other eyewitnesses.

Even before The Beatles was formed, Paul McCartney and John Lennon were longtime collaborators. Once The Beatles began, the duo wrote hundreds of songs as the Lennon-McCartney duo. The first Beatles song the two wrote together was one of their biggest hits, according to McCartney. 

Paul McCartney explains the songwriting process with John Lennon
In an interview with GQ, McCartney discussed the origins behind many hit songs by The Beatles and his solo career. The British singer-songwriter started discussing how he and Lennon collaborated, sharing that the two could brainstorm in “3-hour sessions.”

“Mostly, we’d start from scratch, but sometimes one of us would just have an idea, like the first couple of lines, and then we’d just sit down and work it,” McCartney explained. “A lot of it was we came in and started talking about what we might want to write about, and then we’d just sit down. They were pretty quick sessions. It was normally about 3 hours. And we’d finish something from beginning to end with the chords and the melody and the words.”

Paul says their first Beatles song was ‘I Saw Her Standing There’. 

The song was then the opening track on The Beatles’ debut album, Please Please Me. McCartney said he had different lyrics for the song until Lennon made a better suggestion. This was the beginning of their songwriting partnership with The Beatles. 

“My song started, ‘She was just 17/ She’d never been a beauty queen,’ and we kind of looked at each other, and I said, ‘I don’t really like that line,’” McCartney shared. “So we changed it to ‘She was just 17/ You know what I mean,’ which makes more sense. Even though you probably don’t know what I mean. So, we changed it to that, and that started our songwriting partnership.”

“I Saw Her Standing There” performed well on the charts. In the U.S., it peaked at No. 14 on the Billboard Hot 100 and remained on the chart for 11 weeks. However, the A-side track, “I Want to Hold Your Hand,” performed better, peaking at No. 1 for seven weeks and remaining on the chart for 15 weeks. 


 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


McCartney and Lennon wrote over 300 songs together
Paul McCartney and John Lennon created many of The Beatles’ greatest hits together, Paul wrote more songs in his solo career, but he said he wrote over 300 songs with Lennon. Today, he has forgotten some of the words to a few of the hundreds of songs he’s worked on.

“300 was just the ones I wrote with John,” McCartney stated. “Since then, I’ve written lots more. And I do forget them, yeah. And that’s my excuse.”

Etiquetas: [ED RUDY]  [THE BEATLES]  
Fecha Publicación: 2022-11-23T14:32:00.002-05:00

He sent reports about the Fab Four’s travels to radio stations in February 1964. Then he turned the material into an album that rose to No. 20 on the Billboard chart.


On Feb. 7, 1964, when the Beatles were greeted by thousands of screaming fans at John F. Kennedy International Airport, a radio reporter named Ed Rudy was there.

When they performed in Washington, Mr. Rudy was there.

And when they headed to Miami Beach, he was there.

Mr. Rudy filed reports to a syndicate of radio stations throughout the Beatles’ two-week tour of the United States, their first performances in the country, and soon after packaged his material into a 35-minute album, “The American Tour With Ed Rudy,” which rose to No. 20 on Billboard’s Top LPs chart.

“Here is the sound and substance of the world’s hottest entertainment group,” Mr. Rudy said at the start of the album in his booming Bronx-accented voice.

In a promotion to radio stations that was included on the album, John Lennon said, “This is the complete behind-the-scenes coverage of the Beatles in America by the fifth Beatle, Ed Rudy.”

The title is one that others would claim, including the New York disc jockey Murray Kaufman, better known as Murray the K. Like Mr. Kaufman, Mr. Rudy embraced it.

The album, a chronicle of the Beatles’ invasion of the American market, was released by Mr. Rudy to capitalize on the group’s astonishing early popularity. It was the central achievement among Mr. Rudy’s various undertakings as a writer, radio announcer, band manager and song publisher.

Mr. Rudy died on Nov. 7 at his home in Aventura, Fla. He was 93. His daughter, Anita Storr, confirmed the death.

Edward Ralph Rudy was born on June 26, 1929, in the Bronx. His father, Jacob, a Polish immigrant, was a garment cutter who later became a landlord. His mother, Rose (Steiner) Rudy, who was from Austria, was a homemaker.

According to Mr. Rudy’s website, he worked in the 1950s on three New York City radio stations, WINS, WMGM and WABC, in various on-air roles, as well as writing for the trade newspaper Show Business and other publications.

His daughter said that he also managed the doo-wop groups the Eternals and the Genies; he also published some of their songs, including the Eternals’ “Babalu’s Wedding Day” and the Genies’ “No More Knockin,’” the last of which he is credited with co-writing.

Before and after his Beatles venture, Mr. Rudy was a full-time building inspector for New York City. He also managed a Beatles tribute group called the Liverpool Lads, and in 1965 he released what he called a “tribute album” on which the group recreated a Beatles concert, enhanced with previously recorded crowd noise (he billed himself as “the fifth Beatle” on the cover).

Mr. Rudy didn’t expect much when he headed to Kennedy Airport to cover the Beatles’ arrival for Radio Pulsebeat News, which would send his reports to hundreds of radio stations.

“It had been a big hype, a group of English kids coming over,” he recalled to The Tampa Tribune in 1981. But the Beatles’ cheeky answers to reporters’ questions at a news conference changed his mind, persuading him that they were clever and fun to be with.

The Beatles, standing and wearing suits, surrounded by reporters, some of them with microphones, in a hotel ballroom. Ringo is being interviewed; George is looking at Ringo; Paul seems to be pointing at John, who has a distant look in his eyes.

“One of the first questions we asked them was, ‘Are you embarrassed by the Beatlemania, the near lunacy you create?’” he said.
“We like lunatics,” John Lennon said.

“Their long moptops inspired us to ask if they ever got haircuts,” Mr. Rudy recalled.

“I had one yesterday,” George Harrison said. To which Ringo Starr added, “And that’s no lie.”
Mr. Rudy interviewed giddy fans at the airport and outside the Plaza Hotel in Manhattan, where the Beatles stayed, and described the mob scene at Union Station when the group arrived in Washington by train for their first concert in the United States.

“The police are being unnecessarily rough,” Mr. Rudy said, “not with the teenagers, but with other members of the Beatles party, including the Washington and New York press.”

When the Beatles traveled to make their second appearance on “The Ed Sullivan Show,” broadcast live from the Deauville Beach Resort in Miami Beach, Mr. Rudy described more airport mayhem (“Several teenagers were injured in the Beatlefront battle”) and conducted interviews with Mr. McCartney and the band’s road manager, Malcolm Evans. He flew back to New York with the group (“This is Ed Rudy aboard the Beatle plane,” he said from midair) but ultimately couldn’t squeeze any more brash responses from the tired quartet on subjects like fans trying to break into what he called the “Beatle suitle” at the hotels where the group stayed. The album went on sale in the spring of 1964, for as little as $2.19.


 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

“Rudy is one of numerous examples of the rampant commercialism that assailed the Beatles when they so quickly broke huge in America,” Mark Lewisohn, whose book “Tune In” (2013) is the first of a projected trilogy called “The Beatles: All These Years,” said by email. “He was in the right place at the right time and took every opportunity to be close to the action.”
Mr. Lewisohn said that the Beatles’ management disliked the album and secured a temporary injunction in New York State Supreme Court, “but Rudy wriggled free and carried on.”

In 1965, Mr. Rudy released another album of Beatles interviews, “It’s Here, Luv!!! Beatles Brand New!! Ed Rudy With New U.S. Tour.” He followed it that year with similar records featuring interviews with the Rolling Stones and the Dave Clark Five.

In addition to his daughter, Mr. Rudy is survived by two granddaughters and three great-grandsons. His wife, Edith (Burkenfeld) Rudy, died in 2020. His son, Lloyd, died in 1992.
Fifty-eight years after the Beatles arrived in America, Mr. Rudy was still selling his albums.
“It was exciting and fab all the way,” he wrote in 1964. “I contracted Beatlemania and this disease will be with me for a long, long time.”
