Summer is almost here and so are vacations. I don't have a lot of plans in that area, but I did visit The Musical Intruments Museum today to see the piano on which John wrote 'Imagine'. And here it is!:

With your headphones on, you hear a very short clip from this video:

So does anyone have Beatles related travel planned this year? Or pictures from vacations past?

Ooh, very cool!

 

I'm not sure if it really counts as vacation* but I'll be going to Abbey Road and 3 Savile Row this summer, probably the beginning of June.  Oh, and the Macca gig in Cardiff.

 

...I have pictures from a weekend I spent in Liverpool in February, if anyone's interested.

 

*My best mate here is an archaeology grad student; I'm an English lit grad student.  He needs to do research at the British Museum and asked if I would tag along for a weekend.  We're both American(ish for me.  I'm both.), and I know my way around/have plenty still to see, so I'm useful.  

Do what you want to do, and go where you're going to…

Jenn - thanks for sharing those pics - really lovely to see them.

On the description for the pic of the gravestone for Eleanor Rigby on the first page, you say it was a prop from a film. Could you tell us a bit more about that?

I definitely need to go back to Liverpool. I'm not planning any Beatles-related trips, though I'm seeing Paul live in Cardiff next month. My dad and I have been talking about going to Hamburg at some point - it's a city we've both always wanted to visit, though he doesn't share my love of all things Beatle!

Please don't spoil my day; I'm miles away

I can't with any certainly, unfortunately.  It was part of the audio guide and just opposite was the Sgt Pepper room where the title track was playing on loop, and half a life-size Yellow Submarine was immediately to the left of that...so it was difficult to hear and cope with the sensory overload.  I checked with a friend, and even she couldn't recall, though she did remember it saying it was from a film.  (Dunno how - the two motion pictures preceded Revolver, unless it was in Magical Mystery, which I haven't seen.)  I'm stumped, mate.

 

Macca gig at the Millennium Stadiuuuum.  Get in!

I would say they meant the promo film to Free As A Bird.

Stealing would not look good on his Daily Brink.

Reporter: I heard you stole an Abbey Road sign for your brother.

Audience Member: That was you?

Reporter: And you graffitied on a wall.

Your brother: Ahhhh!

Then the police come.
