Would you guys like me to tell you some of the claims here so you can tell me whether you think I am right or Joe is right.

In my experience, Joe always prioritizes accuracy over his own opinions. If you’re sure you’re right and Joe’s made an error, he’ll correct the record.

One day, a tape-op got a tape on backwards, he went to play it, and it was all "Neeeradno-undowarrroom" and it was "Wow! Sounds Indian!"

It’s not about who’s right, it’s the information being correct.

Just got to it, the songs I did were Another Girl , You Like Me Too Much , and Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da , I will do more in the future if I see anything else that I think is off.

I was just showing the BB to the guy next to me on the plane. I showed him your picture on the “About us” page. I noticed that you need to update your bio now that you have gone full-time with the site, your book, and your other web interests.

The guy pulled up the BB on his phone and said he would show it to his wife who loves The Beatles.

Hey Joe, do you like the song Hey Joe by The Jimi Hendrix Experience, I think it’s a nice psychedelic blues rocker and Hendrix is a great guitarist.

The Byrds version is better.

I don’t know about that, although I haven’t heard their version I know that they are well known for upbeat 12 string numbers, whereas this is a blues rock number and Jimi is a better guitarist than anyone in The Byrds, but this is for Joe to decide.

Yeah, yeah, whatever. But the Byrds version is still better.

I like both versions (make that FOUR versions, can’t forget Love and The Leaves) for different reasons – Hendrix because his version was different (he didn’t do it in that fast 3-chord folk-rock style) and the Byrds’ for McGuinn’s hyperactive lead guitar (nobody was doing 12-string soloing like him in those days) (Are You Experienced? and Fifth Dimension both among my top 43 albums of alltime)

I’ve never heard the original before.  It is great, but like a lot of original tunes, it demonstrates how a body with good bones can be really fleshed out by someone with talent and imagination, like Hendrix.

I say in speeches that a plausible mission of artists is to make people appreciate being alive at least a little bit. I am then asked if I know of any artists who pulled that off. I reply, 'The Beatles did'.

Anyone know who determined the setlisis for Beatles performances? I’m guessing John and Paul, primarily, perhaps with some input from others.

Although you’re in the wrong thread, I’ll answer your question anyways:

First, let’s look at the people who were involved with The Beatles:

a-hard-days-night-john-1: vocals, rhythm guitar

a-hard-days-night-paul-8: vocals, bass guitar

a-hard-days-night-george-9: vocals, lead guitar

a-hard-days-night-ringo-10: drums, vocals

mal-evans: bodyguard, assistant

neil-aspinall: assistant

brian-epstein: manager

george-martin: record producer, studio pianist

Now we know that George Martin was the one who determined the running order of the albums, so it’s possible that he had a say, but if I had to guess who determined the live setlists, it was The Beatles, all 4 of them, with occasional help from Mal, Neil, Brian and George Martin.

If you're reading this, you are looking for something to do.

I bet Epstein had a say in what they played. He had a tight grip on ther tours, but I’m sure the band played whatever they wanted each time. Not that it matters what the played, the audience went insane every time.

Thank you, sir. I was also wondering if BE had influence in this regard. Seems to make sense that his instincts might indeed have had some bearing IMO.

Hey Joe. Your website has been to the John Lennon Wall in Prague.

Cool beans. Someone took a picture of the wall since I’ve been there. http://gigapan.com/gigapans/199385

Some of the places where I wrote beatlesbible.com have been covered up with new paint, but at least 5 places are still there. Here’s a screen shot showing three of them.
