People post these mash-ups all the time, but god damn it, this The Beatles x Led Zeppelin mash-up of “Helter Skelter” & “Whole Lotta Love” by producer/mixer Soundhog is amazing.
Check out these cool promotional photos of The Beatles taken in 1967 for The Beatles “Magical Mystery Tour” movie. These rare photos show Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr and George Harrison as they were filmed and photographed playing soccer in a backyard setting.
Released in 1974, “Pussy Cats” is the tenth album by Harry Nilsson. It was produced by John Lennon during his infamous 18-month “Lost Weekend” period in Los Angeles. The album cover even had a hidden “inside joke” message on the album cover. Do you see the hidden message under the table???
In 1967, the BBC commissioned The Beatles to come up with a song with a message understood by everyone for the Our World Broadcast. The band hit the studio on June 14, 1967 a mere 11 days before the live broadcast and wrote and recorded the anthem “All You Need Is Love”.
I came across the really cool candid photos of George Harrison and his wife Olivia enjoying some vacation time on a boat in sometime in 1975. The shirt Harrison is sporting is from saxophonist Tom Scott’s album “New York Connection” released in December 1975.
This is the most famous photo of Marc Bolan from T. Rex. Crazy enough, the front and back cover of the album have a double tie-in to The Beatles.
On December 3, 2015 I attended a portion of the once-in-a-lifetime Julien’s Auctions curated by Ringo Starr and wife Barbara Bach, featuring items from their London estate, and Beverly Hills and Monaco residences.
Check out this iPhone video I recorded of Grohl speaking about the influence of The Beatles as a band and of Ringo Starr’s influence on his own drumming. It’s a great straight from the heart unscripted question and answer about Ringo…
“Ringo” is the third studio album by Ringo Starr, released in 1973 on Apple Records and is noted for being the only solo album by an ex-Beatle that has all members of The Beatles appear on it.
John Lennon never intended to attend the start of The Beatles “Abbey Road” recording sessions on July 1 but the crash further delayed his return to London. After being discharged from the hospital he spent three days at home before finally rejoining The Beatles at Abbey Road Studios on July 9.
