Not once does the diversity seem forced -- the genius of the record is how the vaudevillian "When I'm 64" seems like a logical extension of "Within You Without You" and how it provides a gateway to the chiming guitars of "Lovely Rita. - Stephen T. Erlewine on Sgt Pepper's

The first part of 'Over The Hills And Far Away'. I haven't got to the solo yet, but I get great satisfaction out of the loopy strings of hammer-ons/pull-offs in the intro. I've noticed Jimmy Page has a thing for loopy runs of hammer-ons/pull-offs. a-hard-days-night-paul-7

I didn't learn this today but since I haven't been on the forum and also since I think you guys would like this fact...

Dick Dale, Albert King, and a few other guitarists play guitar left handed but with the strings in right handed order, so it'd be like going into a guitar store and picking up a right handed guitar but flipping it over to play it left handedly without flipping the strings over. Here's a picture to better explain what I mean.

I know it's a Led Zeppelin song, but the title reminded me of the title of this song:

No prizes for guessing which famous cover of a Beatles song it is parodying. ahdn_ringo_09

The man who founded Little Caesars Pizza, Mike Ilitch, was a minor-league baseball player from 1952 to 1955. A knee injury ended his playing career and he founded Little Caesars in 1959. In 1992, he bought the Detroit Tigers (from the founder of Domino's Pizza) and he owned it until his death earlier this year.

I recently learnt 'Space Oddity', properly, finally. (I'd been messing with it for months.)

On 11 February 1963, while The Beatles were at EMI recording their first album, American poet Sylvia Plath committed suicide less than two miles away at 23 Fitzroy Road.

If she could have held on just a little bit longer she would have heard the lovely sounds of The Beatles.

The poet Paul Farley wrote a poem about it in 2002 in his collection titled The Ice Age.

'11th February 1963' by Paul Farley

The worst winter for decades. In the freeze
some things get lost and I'm not even born,
but think until you're many Februaries
deep in thought with me and find London
on that day as held inside a glacier;
a fissure where two postal districts touch,
its people caught mid-floe, at furniture,
the contents of their stomachs, a stopped watch.
At these pressures the distance has collapsed:
the studio clock winds up over Primrose Hill,
or the poet and her sleeping children crossed
the mile to Abbey Road. This milk bottle
might hold what John'll drink for one last take;
that she'll leave out for when the children wake.

Martin Luther King used to own a gun.

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/.....10132.html

For a guy that not just led a peaceful Revolution that is remembered heavily to this day but also just stood there while a white supremacist threw a swing at him despite the fact that hitting back would've been perfectly legal and would've made sense in that situation, this came as a surprise to me.
