^^ a-hard-days-night-ringo-8Cool! ^^

Random: Does anyone know what was up with George's awful choppy fringe during this tour? Did somebody go at him with a weed-whacker? Seriously, how do you make George Harrison's hair look bad???

Forgot to check other sources before I posted that news update, so a couple others:

* A first look at the US Albums Boxed set from WogBlog. [x-posted at the US Albums thread]

 

And Via Beatles News, two talks by Beatley people – one really pricey – coming up:

* Larry Kane will give a talk at the Huntingdon Valley Library in Pennsylvania on Jan. 5:

The new year marks the 50th anniversary of the Beatles’ American invasion; it also marks the 60th anniversary of the Huntingdon Valley Library. Kane will share personal anecdotes, as well as stories from the band’s early years at a special anniversary brunch honoring the library’s 60 years of service Jan. 5 at 11:30 a.m. at the Philmont Country Club, 301 Tomlinson Road, Huntingdon Valley. Tickets are $25 per person.

* Photographer Harry Benson will give a talk on Jan. 13 in Lake Worth, Florida:

Benson will be at the Cultural Council of Palm Beach County in Lake Worth from 11:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. Jan. 13 for a conversation about his experiences, worldview and unique vision.

[*snip*]

Tickets are $100 and proceeds benefit programs for and about artists in Palm Beach County.

For more information, call 561-472-3342, email ksmiley @palmbeachculture.com or visit http://www.palmbeachculture. com.

I was wondering that myself the other day. It looks absolutely horrible! I think that perhaps even I would've been able to do a better job on it, and I' not even a hairdresser!

Maybe Ringo still had dreams of owning a chain of hair salons and was trying out his skillz.

Not sure if this is quite Beatles news, and it's definitely not new news because it has been announced for a while, but in case anybody's interested, the Cavern club has said what's going to be on for this year's Beatleweek : http://www.cavernclub.org/beatleweek

''We're just knocked out. We heard about the sell out. You gotta get an album out, you owe it to the people. We're so happy we can hardly count.''

I was trying to figure out what he's singing, and it's been confirmed it was "Goodnight Tonight."

What a silly comment. Their sucess has nothing to do with where they recorded, but their talent and the work they put into getting better.

It was a stupid thing to say but is it such a big deal? And who takes Boris seriously anyway?

^ Nah, not really. It's not like this is the first time Boris has said something a bit stupid/pointless.

Maybe Boris gets things done by no one believing what he says and just responses with a "stop Boris, you're killing me here" as they roll around laughing. A great plan.

Not sure if this is old news or new news, maybe both…Smithsonian/The Grammy Museum have an all-Beatles magazine on The Beatles in America with unpublished photos from Ringo and various essays from contributors.  This article from Examiner in November says it was available for order from smithsonian.com, but it is now available on the news stands wtih a date of "February" on it.  We picked up a copy yesterday.

I posted about it at the time, but it's good to know it's available on newsstands now. Thanks, I'll try to pick it up along with the new Rolling Stone.

Thanks, acmac! For some reason I can only access the forum from anywhere but home, so my contributions to news updates will either be aesthetically inelegant or by proxy until I hear from Joe.

Rumours are going about that amongst a large collection of recently found BBC tapes in Nigeria there is a copy of the complete Ticket To Ride performance on Top Of The Pops. Whether or not that would also mean the performance of Yes It Is, which was also performed, has also been discovered, is not mentioned. Personally Yes It Is would be far more interesting as i've never seen a performance of the song, albeit mimed.

A short extract of the TTR performance was included in an episode of Doctor Who (found on Joe's entry for the TOTP appearance).

Yeah, I read that rumour too. I won't get my hopes up – it seems to be a couple of people saying "Wouldn't it be nice if…", and the story becomes "TV vault may contain…" It might also contain the Holy Grail, Nazi gold and the statue of Zeus at Olympia, but willing it to happen doesn't make it so.

*If* the vault does contain some TOTP episodes it's obviously great, but as far as I can tell there's currently absolutely no evidence that it does. Still, if it does Kevin Howlett will be able to write another Beatles book :)
