I was in target today when suddenly my 7 year old son came running over to me: "Ma look! Its John!" yep there he was on the cover of a special issue of Rolling Stone – trained him well I did, lol! So of course I brought it home! Anyone else?  It's his b'day the 9th so all sorts of stuff out. Just another mag to add to the collection. I have not read it all yet…..a-hard-days-night-john-3

a-hard-days-night-ringo-8I saw one in Walgreens today, but I hadn't the money to buy it since I would later be spending around $20 for two tickets to Magical Mystery Tour. But--in time--it shall be mine! a-hard-days-night-john-1

I have two girls, 7 and 9, and they're total Beatle fans.  I have tried to be conscientious about not molding them into little social outcasts and I'm up to date with all of the most recent top-40 nonsense (which I hate, but must tolerate) but my girls have just naturally taken an interest in the stuff their Dad loves.

 

It's a tricky thing now, as a parent, to let your young kids discover a band that broke up 42 years ago.  There are two clear forces in opposition at play:  One side which tells you that your kids need desperately to conform and fit in with the herd (if you're not a parent, you will vehemently disagree with me, I'm sure.  The reality is that kids are NOT snowflakes.  They NEED to assimilate when they're young).

The other side wants my kids to be intellectually strong individuals, and the Beatles are a good springboard.

E is for 'Ergent'.

I used to buy any beatle magazine i came across but i stopped when i realised they were mostly recycled picture books or 4 pages for £4. If something intriques me then cool but not if its another rehash of the story with 'unseen or rare pictures'.

I got into the Beatles because my mom was a huge fan and as a kid I would scoop up whatever mag I could. I wish I had held onto them! I will try to hold onto my son's little collection but he is wearing it out -he brought it to school with him today to show his teacher!He is only in second grade so he is too young to care what the other kids think.To him all the pictures are brand new and so it's kind of like rediscovering them all over again for me. Well worth the $12 I paid.He recently has picked up guitar(his father plays and has taught him a few chords) I am happy that he is inspired by the music to want to play.His brother is a year older and could care less and my 5 year old only loves "Maxwells Silver Hammer" which is a little disturbing lol! She sings it all the time!

SatanHimself -When I was younger Paul McCartney was topping the charts still along with George Harrison- so they were a little more visible than they are now. But not in my scene! I was a punk rocker as a teenager complete with piercings and a mohawk-but when no one was around and it was late at night I would lay in bed and put on Sergeant Pepper-lol! ( I also used to listen to Gordon Lightfoot but I am still embarrassed about that one-don't tell anyone!)

Nothing wrong with old Gordo at all!

Gordon Lightfoot – my hero. He's certainly in my own personal Hall of Fame

Go to Youtube and put in Gordon Lightfoot and Johnny Cash. (But don't look at any recent Lightfoot material; he looks frightening – there, now you're all gonna look.)

By the way, goodbyehello I love your avatar. I actually have the first edition hardcover version of that book, do you. It looks like you took a picture of it? (No, I didn't buy it at auction. I got it as a birthday present when it came out!)

Related sort here: My kids were watching the Bee Movie last night; the animated movie with Jerry Seinfeld though the name escapes me. Any way, my wife called to tell me that Here Comes The Sun is used and when it came on my 4.5 year old daughter became visibly angry. "bees didn't make that, Beatles did!!!". Hah… I play that one all the time on my ovation. Can't wait to er home from this trip and give her a big ole hug.

I don't want to dampen the mood, but sometimes i get annoyed with all the 'special edition' beatle magazines that come out.  It seems like there's always something on the magazine shelf at a given time.  The worst company for doing this is Life magazine.  I swear every month or so they release a new Beatles speciaal edition collectors copy magazine for $20 or something.  i used to look at them and have a urge to buy them, but what can they possibly contain that we don't already know or have not already seen before.

I actually have the book- but my kids destroyed the dust cover when they were little-agggh! But I always loved that picture so I dug up a pic on the internet!

Yeah, so I picked it up over the weekend. I actually like these "special editions" because…

  1. They look awesome on the coffee table.
  2. I can let people borrow them without worrying too much about what shape they come back in. It's not like I'm letting them borrow a biographical book that I care about. They are quite educational for the casual Fab fans.

To the fountain of perpetual mirth, Let it roll for all its worth.

I love that picture of John that is on the cover, it´s like he´s deep in thought.

Is that the same as the White Album portrait? It looks minutely different somehow…

 

How many times did the Stone put John on the cover while he was alive, anyhow? I know he's got more covers than anyone, but most of them were posthumous…

It is the same, just that the colour is a little brighter, better.

After a quick google search, I have found out that John appeared by himself 32 times, and The Beatles together 16 times. I haven't  been able to find out how many times he appeared posthumously though. Although the last shoot he did was on the 8th of December, 1980. The picture is so famous now, for all the wrong reasons…
