Nickelodeon Begins Production on Beatles-Inspired BIG TIME MOVIE

Stars of the Nickelodeon hit series and international recording artists Big Time Rush will headline the network's brand-new original TV movie, Big Time Movie which will feature covers of the beloved Beatles classics, Help!, A Hard Day's Night, We Can Work It Out and Revolution, as well as music from Big Time Rush's soon-to-be released sophomore album, Elevate. In Big Time Movie, currently in production in Vancouver, Kendall (Kendall Schmidt), James (James Maslow), Carlos (Carlos Pena Jr.) and Logan (Logan Henderson) head to London for their first big world tour but instead get mixed up in a mission to save the world. With their bags switched at the airport, they inadvertently gain possession of a fearsome device that, in the wrong hands, could destroy the world. Set to premiere in 2012, Big Time Movie is executive produced by show creator Scott Fellows.

Latest opinions regards the supposed Stu track from a handful of people including Tony Sheridan.

Thanks, mustard. It seems like the majority of people who knew Stuart think it's either fake or tampered with. I don't know. Someone pointed out that perhaps the recording could be dated-if that really can be done, it would clear up some things.

There will be probably little things that prove it was from a certain time; the type of piano used, the way the record 'sounds', backgroung noises when amplified etc. The kind of thing they do in CSI shows.

Hi all. I received this email earlier this week. I don't do news items on cover versions/albums, but said I'd post something here. The second paragraph looks particularly interesting – it's been reported for some years now, but I presume it's nearing completion (let's not hold our breath though).

My name is David Young and I am the producer of an album titled Magical Mystery Guitar tour by world renowned guitarist Carlos Bonell.

Carlos has been helping Sir Paul McCartney with Paul’s upcoming guitar concerto.

On the back of this Carlos decided to record an album of solo guitar arrangements of Lennon/McCartney and George Harrison compositions.

The album is now available in stores worldwide.

Full details of the album are at http://www.carlosbonell.com where the album is available with free worldwide postage.

Also attached here is a link to footage of Carlos performing Strawberry Fields Forever which is the promo film for the album.

I hope that this is of interest to you and I look forward to hearing from you in due course.

Many thanks in advance.
David Young

Ringo's size, I guess? He has quite little feet, doesn't he? a-hard-days-night-george-8

"Now and then, though, someone does begin to grow differently. Instead of down, his feet grow up toward the sky. But we do our best to discourage awkward things like that." "What happens to them?" insisted Milo. "Oddly enough, they often grow ten times the size of everyone else," said Alec thoughtfully, "and I’ve heard that they walk among the stars." –The Phantom Tollbooth

Why George Harrison Was Known as the Spiritual Beatle

The Beatles exist apart from my self. I am not really Beatle George. Beatle George is like a suit or shirt that I once wore on occasion, and until the end of my life people may see that shirt and mistake it for me." -- George Harrison. I was working as a musician in the 1970s, and very late one night during a recording session at Capitol Records, George Harrison just sort of wandered in and sat down to listen. Since he knew the producer of the session, he decided to stay for a "few minutes." We all sat and talked, drank a few beers, and sang background harmonies together… for the better part of five hours. I can report to you that the above quote depicts exactly how he showed up that evening. He was not wearing his Beatles identity, he was just a guy named George, hanging out like a kid with some of his buddies in a garage band.

George Harrison's Sister Carries on Beatles Legacy

Louise Harrison's "Keeping Music Alive" program brings the Fab Four to life at schools across the country. The Liverpool Legends will perform at Lemont High School at 7 p.m. Friday, Nov. 18.To millions of Beatles fans across the globe, Louise Harrison is referred to affectionately as "the flying mum."Harrison is the older sister of the late George Harrison, who — along with bandmates Paul McCartney, John Lennon and Ringo Starr — rose to worldwide fame with the Beatles in the 1960s.At the time, Louise Harrison was living in Illinois with her husband. Before the band made it big in the United States, she went from radio station to radio station, begging producers to play the Beatles' records.Now, nearly 50 years later, Harrison carries on her brother's legacy through a Beatles tribute band, the Branson, MO-based "Liverpool Legends." Since 2006, the band has been performing songs spanning the entire career of the Beatles, as well as the band members' solo years.

Abbey Road Studios celebrates 80 years of recording

Abbey Road Studios, the recording studio made famous by bands such as The Beatles and Pink Floyd, has celebrated its 80th birthday just a day after it was sold to a French-owned rival.

On November 12 1931, Abbey Road Studios officially opened its doors with Sir Edward Elgar conducting the London Symphony Orchestra playing Land of Hope and Glory.Despite hosting a number of landmark recordings from artists such as Fred Astaire and Glenn Miller, it was not until The Beatles named their 11th studio album after the recording studio that it began to find worldwide fame.
