Fundraising talk in Boston this Sunday:

LENOX – Four decades after Beatlemania swept the world, the groundbreaking group of four mop-top lads from Liverpool continues to fascinate music lovers of all ages.

The reasons for the Beatles' genre-defying appeal will be explored this Sunday in a multimedia presentation at the Lenox Library by Boston University music professor Jeremy Yudkin, a Stockbridge resident.

Yudkin's expertise extends from medieval and renaissance music to Western art music in all its forms, as well as jazz and rock. He specializes in the connections among music, culture, history and social forces.

The event, a fundraiser for the Lenox Library, is at 4 p.m. on June 22. Suggested donation for "The Beatles, the Sixties and Popular Culture" is $15 per person or $20 per family.

More at the link. @DrBeatle

Thanks for the heads-up! Unfortunately we've got plans for the weekend that were made weeks ago so no can do :-(. Ah, well!

Uh-oh. The show seems to be a no-go for now. "The proposal is still on the table" though.

I always wanted to make a Beatles mini-TV series :/ I'm sure there are people out there who sound very close to the actual Beatles and the actors could lip sync to them (Fab Faux maybe?). 

It's a blessing and a curse that it's so hard to get rights to Beatles' music.

A number of Beatles programs and films have used sound-a-likes for the music and the actors simply mime to the music (some films don't even bother and just play the music over the action), however the bands generally suck and make you want to break the tv.

The NBC series has  hit a snag because Sony/ATV wants to make their own series on a cable network.

If I seem to act unkind, it isn't me, its just my mind that is confusing things

Yeah, true. And it sucks. Better to not use them at all sometimes, in my opinion.

The only film that comes to mind in which they've used a real Beatles song was that facebook film. It had Baby You're A Rich Man playing at the end. There are probably a few more though.

I'll see if I can find any other threads like it. I know there is a separate one for commercials.

A second Wogblog article reports on the upcoming Blue Plaque in memory of Brian Epstein which "will be unveiled at 12 noon on Sunday 29th June, at Sutherland House, 5/6 Argyll Street, London W1 next door to the London Palladium"

I thought about this post when I saw this story from the Liverpool Echo about a tour you can take of Liverpool's Blue Plaques. The article describes the ins-and-outs of the Blue Plaque that I didn't know.

As Brian Epstein is about to be honoured with a Blue Plaque in London, the ECHO looked at the homes of the famous you can see on Merseyside

Bessie Braddock – legendary left-wing firebrand; John Lennon – possibly the most iconic pop star in the world; Captain Noel Chavasse – renowned war hero. All three have Blue Plaques in Liverpool, quite deservedly commemorating their association with the city.

Paul Beesley, chair of the Association of Liverpool Tour Guides, is in no doubt of their value.

Liverpool was the first city outside London to be chosen to have an official Blue Plaque and, outside London, it has the largest number of English Heritage Blue Plaques.

“The most viewed plaque in Liverpool is, without a doubt, the one on the childhood home of John Lennon,” explains Paul.

“And the question guides are always asked is why there is a plaque at John's but not at the home of Paul McCartney? The answer is simple; someone can only be considered for a plaque 20 years after their death or 100 years since their birth.”

Just as an aside, I found this while searching for this topic.

It just doesn't seem right that Paul and Ringo should be using phrases like "OMG", "WTF", and "LOL". They're in their 70s.

Paul has added a Greensboro, NC date for October 30.

Also, he's made a video for US concertgoers.
