^*_^^ Nice one, Dhani hosted the karaoke section at The Wammys (Grammy pre-party) a couple of nights ago for the second year running. Wondering if he's going to be there tonight or at the Beatles show tomorrow (surely he has to be at the show tomorrow, representing George. It's not as if he has an excuse he lives in L.A now)

Watching it online, but the quality is so bad and it won't start for another few hours. It'll be what..3 am around here when it starts? I don't really get it anyway..it hasn't started yet yet they've already given out some awards. How does that work?

Btw, just spotted Yoko and Sean at the red carpet. 

They only show portions of it on tv. With so many awards, we would be here all night watching it.

Well this is lame. I watched the red carpet and some backstage stuff online, but as soon as it got to the real show it stayed on backstage and I can't watch the real show anywhere. It's not on tv either.

Yes it's 2.20 am and I'm still awake, not tired at all and pretty bored.

Sean's looking more and more like '69-era John with the long hair.

For those who can receive the UK's Channel 4, they are showing a 90 minute Grammy Awards highlights package at just after midnight today (27) (00.05-01:35am, 28 January).

Thanks for the heads up.

Can't receive that channel either. All of a sudden I remember why I've never watched the Grammys before! Oh well, I'm sure it'll land on Youtube soon.

'The Beatles Years: Volume 2 After The Breakup 1970-2001 by Keith Badman (great surname, eh?)

'The Beatles' Shadow: Stuart Sutcliffe's Lonely Hearts Club' by Pauline Sutcliffe

And 'The Kama Sutra'....I may be joking about that one, you decide a-hard-days-night-john-7

If all of them transactions go on well then I will definitely order more books, probably about Brian brian-epstein because I have never read a book on him

 

Very good book. Well worth reading.

 

 

 

ASJ, did you get any of the books? Any thoughts on any of them?

^^^ I'll reply to that when I get on the laptop, my phone is annoying to type on.

Anyways I came home for lunch and caught the last couple of minutes of RTÉ1 News, apparently yesterday's Grammys was 50 Years to the day of the appearance of the lads on Ed Sullivan, funny I thought it was February the 9th, Paul's new single "Queen" was sung.
Who the hell does the research for the news :/
They also said Olivia was in the audience, I didn't see her

The BBC has it done as Paul winning two Grammys,

Sir Paul McCartney was among the other double winners. . .

which is slighty different to Beatles Examiner which says he got five.

That makes five Grammy Awards the 71-year-old former Beatle won Sunday.

Maybe the first few don't countahdn_paul_01.

^^ Lightweights, I've been drinking whisky since I was 7 a-hard-days-night-george-10

Only a couple of hours to the Grammy's (which I won't be watching live because sleep is important) So any predictions for what Paul is going to play? I have a firm feeling 'I Saw Her Standing There' will be one :)

Gotta look after your liver, Katie. Don't want problems by the time you're 30 now, do you? a-hard-days-night-george-10

I didn't bother staying up to watch the Grammys, but I might stay up tonight to watch the Highlights. There's something else I watch on a Monday and that doesn't finish 'till 11.30, so I'll be up late anyway. I've never been that bothered about watching award ceremonies, but I guess this is a bit different.

I just ordered Tune In and Anthology yesterday (FINALLY) and I am so excited. I have been wanting to get Anthology (the DVDs) for four years now. I don't know why I waited so long.

Which version of Tune In have you gone for?

You will LOVE Anthology!

I went for the extended special edition, off Amazon uk. It's not in stock right now though so I have no idea when I'm going to get it. 

And yeah, I am really excited about getting Anthology.

However much you spent on Anthology, it's worth every penny. Trust me.

I second that emotion...

My wife bought me the set for Christmas about 4 years ago. I still watch them at least 3 or 4 times a year. Can't get enough!

Not sure if this for the moments or LOL thread so here it goes. Coventry football fans have an impromptu rendition of Twist And Shout at Arsenal.

a-hard-days-night-ringo-8 That is pure genius! Almost seems like a flash mob, and you don't see how it starts. I wonder if there were 3 or 4 people who decided to see what would happen!

I play acoustic guitar (have been for years), mostly finger-picking in the James Taylor style.  For this, I need my thumb and three fingers (sans pinkie) of my picking hand (right hand) to have long nails, while all the nails on my left hand (that press down on the strings to form chords) have to be clipped down to the nub.

I recently experienced acutely how important it is to have the nail of my ring finger (the finger between the middle "flip the bird" finger and the pinkie) to be long enough.  I had clipped it down a shade too far, still leaving plenty of length to the unsuspecting onlooker, but crucially short of providing my finger with the ease it needs to grab and sound strings when it needs to.  Given that I use the other two fingers (middle and index) plus my thumb, my ring finger tends to be devoted to the high E string -- and I was finding that more often than not, I had to become conscious of having to press my finger down more than normally, and that became distracting and annoying, and tended to interfere a little with my performance.

Now, if I can just get rid of this annoying little pea under my mattress...blue-meanie

Surprised not to have seen it mentioned anywhere here, but watching Grammy highlights. Now, knowing I'm not watching the full thing, Paul and Ringo did Queenie Eye, next thing we're given is Steven Tyler and Smokey Robinson presenting Record of the Year. Smokey sings a few lines of You Really Got A Hold On Me and declares, "Paul! You should record that!"

The Beatles recorded it, with a smokin' soulful Lennon vocal, for With The Beatles, which rejigged appeared as their first US Capitol album Meet The Beatles. As important a release 50 years ago for Smokey as it was for them. The Beatles early Motown covers helped make Motown, and Smokey with his tongue-in-cheek, acknowledged the debt!
