The Liverpool Echo reports that The Beatles receive over 50,000 hits on their Wikipedia page(s) daily, amounting to one every 1.4 seconds. While John’s page(s) are hit every six seconds, and Paul’s every ten seconds.

Are you a Wikipedia editor? Have you ever spotted incorrect information on any of their Beatles pages?

Thought this was mildly amusing, mainly for Paul’s reaction.

Of course not, because most of them cite the Beatles Bible. a-hard-days-night-george-10

Most of the time Wikipedia’s right, but sometimes there’s an occasional error in instrumentation line-up and things like that.

Of course, that’s speculative usually anyway.

That was a classic stare.

Wonder if he gave that “alligator” to Nancy.

Paul is 73.

Today on the View they talked about how Paul was rejected at Tyga’s after-party. The only “view” that there was is that everyone should know who Paul is. I mean, his daughter has a clothing line.

Sorry but a) is it really news that Paul didnt get in, and b) why does anyone give a toss anyway?

 

Paint is drying somewhere and its far more interesting.

On some days, there is so little going on that Paul McCartney ‘s rejection from a party is the most interesting thing out there.

Adding to that, Yoko has recently said that people like her more now because they are “getting smarter.” It makes me think she has been here.a-hard-days-night-george-4

Then she needs to tell us whether she loved John! (Actually, I sort of wish I had called that thread something else).

Eric Clapton’s 23rd studio album I Still Do will be released on his own Bushbranch label in association with Surfdog Records in the US on 20 May.

Of particular interest, the album features the previously unreleased (and seemingly unknown) I Will Be There, which features vocals and acoustic guitar by a certain Angelo Mysterioso.

a-hard-days-night-ringo-8 I’ve been thinking about this, and is does strike me as interesting as what it might turn out to be.

Is it going to be some vintage outtake that Eric has decided to dust off in remembrance of George?

Dhani has also spoken of his cataloguing of George’s archive. George’s contribution is described as vocal and acoustic guitar, which could well describe a demo.

Could this possibly be an unheard George demo that Eric’s been given to work with? After all, the use of the nom-de-plume Angelo Mysterioso, screams George, despite the slightly different spelling. Could this be a Free As A Bird /Real Love -type track?

Nope, George came out of hiding on an island somewhere. Only Olivia and Dhani know this, but he’s been there ever since faking his own death in 2001. Needless to say the fans don’t ever bother him there. a-hard-days-night-george-10

Who else started humming the last line of Here, There And Everywhere when they saw that song title?
