A DATE IN BEATLES HISTORY-
This past weekend or “Yesterday” if you’re reading this on Monday, was an anniversary in Beatles history. It was April 10 or 11th (depending on what the exact moment was) 1970 That Paul McCartney announced he was leaving the Beatles. The reason I mentioned both dates is that all Beatles historians like to argue about dates and times. The truth is that it DID happen. This all began months of infighting and the eventual breakup. IMAGINE THIS–this – all that music written in a period of 9 years. After the Premiere of Ron Howard’s -White Horse Pictures film “Eight Days a Week” in London, Paul talked about missing John and George, and also about the final rooftop concert in January. The concert played a big role in the movie. which can be viewed om HULU. It’s the first movie I have ever been a part of, and probably the last.
I am thinking BEATLES a lot these days, as you’ll note in the previous post. Every time I’ve felt out of sorts during the pandemic (you know the feeling) I would talk to my wife. visit or talk to our kids and grandchildren and then play a Beatles song. The music never seems to amaze me. And now a special “project for the ages” is underway. I’ll have more on this soon.
