The Beatles Singing

June 17, 2012 2 comments

I’ve taught Emma (my two-year-old) that whenever I ask “who’s singing?” to answer “The Beatles Singing!” So if I only ask the question when they’re on the radio- she’s a GENIUS! She can also name all four Beatles and takes a particular joy in saying Ringo’s name (which might mimic my own joy at the same).

That might lead you to think that I’m a big fan of the Beatles, and you’d be correct. So here’s a link to a webcam permanently pointed at the Abbey Road crossing from the album cover. It’s raining in London right now, and almost dark, so there’s no one there, but when I first looked at it, it took about 5 seconds for cars to pass before 4 people went out and took a picture. Followed by about 7 sets more. It’s actually a pretty busy street., even without a bunch of people stopping traffic, getting honked at, and generally causing problems.

Which, I imagine, would make John, Paul, George, and RIIIINGO smile.  28IF.

 

Why do I want this so badly?

Recently found: a letter from Paul McCartney to an unknown drummer, just before the Beatles went to Hamburg, Germany in 1960. They were already looking to audition replacements for Pete Best, two years before they booted him for Ringo.

The group basically learned everything about performing by doing 10 hours a night in the Hamberg red light district. The reason George was the better musician was because someone had to stay on stage and keep the music going while Paul and John screwed around in the audience.

Why do I want to own this? It’s only expect to go for $11,000. Honey? It’s an investment.

Heres the article
