This Earth Day skit from Jimmy Kimmel was on my mind so I had to look it up:

 A dramatic operation to save a ladybird's life just happened in our kitchen. I am proud to say the ladybird is alive and well and is currently outside on a leaf.

Until a minute ago, I never knew that "ladybird" was the same as "ladybug".  The wife of one of America's famous modern Presidents -- Lyndon B. Johnson -- was nicknamed "Ladybird".  All this time, I thought she was named after a type of bird!

P.S.:  I'd say L.B.J. (as President Johnson was known) is a most appropriate American President to mention on a Beatles Bible forum, since his term -- 1963-1969 -- coincides with the career of the Beatles.

P.P.S.:  Also, isn't the ladybird/ladybug a beetle...?  Yes it is!

I went to the Cavern club today! It was brilliant. Front-row seats for live music, the intoxicating smell of booze, a thousand names written on the old brick walls... absolutely amazing. I'd go again. I'd do anything to perform there.

I also bought Live At The BBC Volume 2, which I'm looking forward to listening to.

I wasn't sure whether to put this in the "good covers" thread or the "odd covers" thread, so I decided to go with neither.

 

This is Metallica's James Hetfield playing a solo acoustic version of "In My Life" at a recent cancer benefit concert.  I can't honestly claim that I'm the world's biggest Metallica fan (I like Metallica, but I'm not a hardcore fan), but this cover isn't bad.

That must've been a really cool experience! I hope to go there sometime in my life, but I'm a bit farther from it than you... Like an ocean...

@Funny Paper, you're mentioning LBJ made remember that the little one-horse town from which I just moved had at least one claim to fame. Notice the little sign on the side of the building.

The first time I went to that little Dairy Queen, I told the 16 year old on the other side of the window, "I'll have what LBJ had". Her response was a blank stare. a-hard-days-night-ringo-7

While LBJ was enjoying his ice cream, the Beatles were having a crappy day

Thanks for that. I've got mixed feelings about Metallica (love their '80s stuff, hate everything from the black album on) and mixed feelings about that performance. Hetfield's obviously got great taste (as do some of the screaming yahoos in the crowd) and he plays the song well...but singing was never his strong suit, even if he could duplicate the all-but-necessary harmonies himself. Wonder what percentage of Metallica fanatics who didn't already know the song would be won over by that rendition?

Oh yeah, came across that cover on Twitter. I stopped it halfway through. Not necessarily because I thought it was bad, but just because it was loading slow and I didn't think it was good enough to wait for it to go on. It was funny to hear him sing in a normal way, and funny how he still manages to get a few growls in there.

Seems like In My Life is one of James' songs at the moment, as here he is performing it with Metallica on the 12th at an acoustic performance for MusiCares.

That was a little better! Kirk's solo was nice, you can imagine (if you want) George playing a solo like that if the Beatles waited until '69 to record that one. Hetfield's high note at the end was respectable, but I still wish Kirk or the bassist had worked out a harmony vocal part (hey they had microphones so why not?) If they all sang real purty, they might've sounded as good as (for instance) Extreme in their vintage "More Than Words" days!

@vonbontee Not even if they'd waited until 1969 to record it, but if it had been one of the oldies they dug up during the Get Back sessions. Can you imagine a January 1969 revisit with Billy Preston on keyboards!

I agree about the harmonies though, they could have worked some out!

We're going to Niagara Falls, along with assorted other things on the Canadian side. We're actually going to the US side of Niagara Falls, so I'm wondering why they're even taking us into Canada anyway. Probably so we don't have to stay in hell Buffalo.

After the US courts gave last minute permission for the "performance" to go ahead, "Michael Jackson" appearing at last night's Billboard Awards:

How long before the same is done to The Beatles?

Ack, the video is unavailable. Damn (overacts his finger clicking to hide faux disappointment).

 

Hopefully a Beatles hologram wont happen until either i'm dead or unable to realise what is going on in life thru being little more than a bowl of body tissue.
