* Story the NY Daily News via The Macca Report about Paul reaching out to the dying friend of his wife:

 

Paul McCartney makes lifelong dream come true for beloved city official stricken with cancer

Sir Paul reached out to Susan Kupferman as she was dying of cancer, Mayor Bloomberg reveals

Paul McCartney made a lifelong dream come true for a dying Beatles fan who had been an admired official at City Hall.

One fourth of the world's greatest rock band reached out to Susan Kupferman when she was in the final stages of cancer, a grateful Mayor Bloomberg revealed Friday.

McCartney called the terminally ill woman - who had left city government to become a top official at the MTA - when she was in the hospital.

Kupferman and McCartney's wife - former MTA board member Nancy Shevell - were friends.

"I wasn't on the call but I'm telling you, Sir Paul called," an impressed Bloomberg said Friday on his weekly appearance on John Gambling's WOR-AM radio show.

Bloomberg - whose admiration for the rock legend is well-known - now has even more respect for McCartney.

"He is a great guy," he said.

* Cute story about Frank Sinatra doing a favor for Ringo for Maureen's 22nd birthday.

 

I didn't get a chance to check out the recording after I posted this, but Breakfast with the Beatles played it today in honor of her birthday, and it really is the cutest thing ever.

RIP, Nat Weiss, Beatles attorney and Epstein confidante:

 

Beatles lawyer and close Brian Epstein friend Nat Weiss has died

Nat Weiss, an attorney who was a loyal friend and confidante of Brian Epstein and in charge of merchandising for the Beatles in the U.S., and who represented a host of other musicians, has died, musician Steve Forbert announced on Facebook Aug. 3.

“Nathan M. Weiss passed away Wednesday night in New York City,” Forbert said. “Nat Weiss was indisputably one of the all time greats of the real music business -- a person whom one would consider themselves very lucky to have known and very lucky to have worked with. He was the smartest person I've ever met and certainly one of the strongest. I'm eternally grateful to him.”

His son, Shaun, told Beatles Examiner, “Nat would want people to remember him as a friend of the Beatles and to their fans. As time went on he grew old he faded into the history books but he never forgot how Beatle fans would write him and tell him how much they loved the Fab Four.”

 

Here's a (cropped) pic by Linda of Weiss with John and Paul - looks like at the NYC announcement of Apple.

* Another play, this one focusing on John will be in Liverpool from Aug 20-24.

John Lennon is having a moment. Again. More than three decades after his untimely death in New York, the Lennon legend lives on in not one, but two plays being performed in Liverpool this month.

And while John Power is taking on his first acting role – playing the ex-Beatle at the Royal Court – Daniel Taylor is preparing to be John Winston Lennon for the third time.

Writer Ian Carroll’s play One Bad Thing – which suggests while Mark Chapman may have fired the bullet that killed the music icon, he’d been manipulated by darker state forces who wanted Lennon off the scene – is at the Liverpool Actors Studio Theatre in Seel Street after being performed there three years ago.

 

* From The Examiner:

Unreleased acetate of Paul McCartney song by Peter & Gordon on eBay

An acetate described as an unreleased version of the Peter & Gordon hit song “Woman” which was written by Paul McCartney under the alias Bernard Webb was put up for sale Aug. 5 on eBay. The song, a historic find and a different arrangement of the version that became a top 20 hit for the British duo, includes the former Beatle playing drums, according to the description on the listing.

The acetate contains two mixes of the Dec. 1, 1965, recording session, which the description says has never been released, the listing states. You can hear a clip of the acetate on Soundcloud.

“The disc was cut on the 8th December 1965 after the first session by Engineer Ken Scott, his initials KS are on the acetate. The acetate disc is TWO SIDED and contains TWO MIXES of the original 1st December session. One is marked 'Mix 1' and the other 'RM4'. Both sides of the acetate are mint and playback without any skipping, and with almost no surface noise.”

Apologies if this has been posted before but Wogblog there was much hype over some rare photos of the Beatles being discovered, well now said photos have been removed from sale as they are not as rare as previously thought.

The real reason why I post this however is the hilarious Daily Mail article over these "rare" photos. Quality journalism at its finest.a-hard-days-night-john-6

Haha, yeah, saw that the other day. Those were all photos I'd seen hundreds of times over the past 20+ years and they obviously have been around longer than that. The one that cracked me up were the 4 White Album portraits :lol:

^^ It makes me wonder how often auction houses sell bogus items.

Saw the new Rolling Stone and the cover is the best live acts right now, and there's a brief article on Paul. I think it's a portion of the online interview posted here about a week or two ago.

^^ Where can we see/hear your show, wetroosa? Sorry, I'm sure you've said elsewhere.

Quick mention as I'm heading out to work having just gotten back home. Someone told me that an hour of Paul's performance will be streamed at 7pm PST tonight. Presumably at the link given upthread.

I sent you a PM on how to listen to it. If you've gotten it, let me know. If enough people express interest on the show, I'll just start a topic on the forum and that way maybe I can reveal upcoming episodes and such. I've yet to receive any feedback from listeners, but maybe here is the place to do it! brian-epstein

wetroosa, does your show come available with a download/podcast or anything like that? Wouldn't mind listening in but I only ever listen to radio on the move unless its the news or the football.

I wish it could be up for podcast, but due to copyright issues my station doesn't allow its local music programs to be available for download or podcast. Sorry. Again, wish it was, but it's the station's policy. a-hard-days-night-ringo-14
