I came across this picture today with a sculpture of the Fab Four in front a Beatles Bar in Cuba.

I searched the forum to see if anyone else had posted about the statue before. I found a thread mithveaen created some time back.

Don’t know if these crop up elsewhere, but if they have, they still deserve a mention in this thread.

Benton, Illinois, the first place in America to be visited by a Beatle when George and Pete went to see his sister, Louise, who lived there, in September 1963, and for some time they have had a plaque commemorating the visit:

Harrison-Plaque-Benton-Illinois.jpgImage Enlarger

In 2019, near Interstate 57, on Airport Road, they added a 16-foot freestanding mural of George playing guitar with screaming girls looking on.

There’s a postcard which describes its creation:

“George Comes to Benton- 1963” – This mural installation, painted in 2017, commemorates the first visit by a Beatle to America. Several months ahead of the British rock group’s big splash on US soil in early 1964, George Harrison and his brother Peter came to Benton, Illinois to visit their sister Louise and her family. The Beatles were unknown to Americans, despite being at the top of the charts in England, and George was able to remain anonymous during his two week stay. He played with a local band, bought a guitar in a neighboring town, and mostly hung out as a tourist. The Beatles were about to explode on the world stage, and for years to come, folks in Southern Illinois would recall the police young man with long hair and a funny accent. Created by California artist John Cerney, the 16-foot-tall mural is located along Interstate 57 in Benton, Illinois.

And it’s lit-up at night:

I like the way it shows a black-and-white world turning to colour.

We know the former Empress pub (closed a few years ago) in the Dingle in Liverpool because it was the local pub to where Ringo grew up, his mother Elsie worked there, and it appears on the cover of Sentimental Journey

Empress.jpgImage Enlarger

…and if you get a wider view of it, it’s usually taken from the left…

Empress-1.jpgImage Enlarger

…because the view from the right ain’t much to write home about…

Empress-2.jpgImage Enlarger

That’s changed. The Empress is in the process of being converted to housing, and one of the painter decorators working there recently was a guy called John Culshaw, who’s well known in Liverpool for his murals of footballers across the city. He saw that wall and asked if he could do something with it, and was given permission.

Initially, it was going to be a Beatles themed mural; it wasn’t going to be just Ringo, but with his connection to the area, we went with him.

And early work was seen happening a few weeks ago…

Empress-3.jpgImage Enlarger

Empress-4.jpgImage Enlarger

Empress-5.jpgImage Enlarger

Empress-6.jpgImage Enlarger

However, we still wanted to be as bright and as vibrant as possible, so I researched what we could put in there. We decided to go with a cartoon of the yellow submarine and the octopus as well.

The finished mural was unveiled around a week ago…

Empress-7.jpgImage Enlarger

…and to give an idea of just how huge it is…

a-hard-days-night-ringo-6a-hard-days-night-ringo-6a-hard-days-night-ringo-6a-hard-days-night-ringo-6a-hard-days-night-ringo-6

An absolutely fantastic piece of work, and difficult to think of a better placed Beatles-related mural.

I’ve always just done it for myself. When you get a pat on the back, it’s nice, but I think a little more at the minute about how people will react to my work.

It’s not just mine, it’s public work, so everyone’s going to see it. People live in the street, so I need to think about how they’ll react to it. Luckily for me, everyone’s liked it.

This is wonderful, especially after reading volume 1 of Tune In where time after time Lewisohn comments on a Ringo-related building having been demolished.

My hot take is that after the Beatles split they went down the paths of spiritualism, solipsism, alcoholism, and Paul McCartney

Sad to hear that the John mural by Andrey Palval in Lennon Square (formerly Sovetskaya Square) in Izum, Ukraine…

…has taken war damage…

Far from the worst thing happening in Ukraine at the moment, but still sad to see a cultural landmark taking damage, and realising it may not survive Russia’s disgusting and unjustified war on Ukraine.

I came across this painting by Paul last night, titled “Is this a self portrait?”

isthisaselfportrait-1.pngImage Enlarger

It’s the most interesting painting of his I’ve seen (would love recommendations).

I think the left side looks like Paul and the right side looks like John.
