Ah, and I've not long bought a pair of Vans! :/

Mind you, they look a bit.... loud :)

Has it already been mentioned that Paul and Ringo are both performing on the "Night That Changed America"?

Yeah, upthread.

Those are great. Not sure if I could pull them off though. Definitely... loud.

* A tribute to the Beatles by Danger Mouse as part of the run-up to the Lifetime Achievement Grammy.

* If you'll be near the Rock n Roll Hall of Fame around the time of the 50th anniversary festivities, here's a list of events.

* Cirque du Soleil's "Love" will be part of the The Night that Changed America celebration.

 

* John's on the cover of NME (I believe that's a never before published photo).

* WogBlog article on tickets going on sale for a Ringo concert in Albany, NY, the first one spotted for 2014.

* Looks like Paul went to see The Eagles at The Forum this week.

 

* Examiner article on an exhibit about Beatlemania in the Czech Republic.

* DrBeatle might be interested in this - a documentary on the band's concerts in Boston called The Beatles Boston will premiere tonight.

Since you mentioned Boston and Beatles:

Excellent essay by Danger Mouse. I'm impressed.

I'm kinda creeped out about John's eyes being closed in that picture.

Does anyone know more about this movie? The article says it will come out in 2014.

Living is Easy with Eyes Closed

Living Is Easy With Eyes Closed: How John Lennon's role in a 1960s war film inspired a whole new movie

A new film about a teacher who travels across Spain to meet John Lennon, acting in a war movie there, is based on a true story

“I read the story in a paper in 2006,” says David Trueba [writer and director]. “They were celebrating 40 years of Lennon being in Almeria, and I read about this teacher who made this trip and asked Lennon to make corrections in his notebook. The teacher used to listen to Radio Luxembourg and write down the lyrics of their songs, as he heard them, however he couldn't get the lyrics from the Revolver album right as they started using more psychedelic words. When they met, the teacher gave him the notebook and Lennon corrected the lyrics and filled in the gaps. He also corrected songs written by Paul McCartney and George Harrison – 'Eleanor Rigby' and 'Taxman'.”

The real-life teacher Juan Carrón Gañàn is now 88 years old and still teaching English. “The notebook still exists,” says Trueba. “The funny thing is that Lennon used colours when correcting the lyrics. For 'Yellow Submarine' he used a yellow pen, and if he wrote the word 'green' he would use a green pen. You only have to look at the way he did the corrections and you think this guy must have been funny.” After this meeting, The Beatles included printed sheets of their song lyrics with their following albums.

 

Looks like he found a pretty good actor to resemble Lennon.

^^ Sounds like an awesome story. I haven't heard anything about it. You might want to x-post in the movies section.

BTW, your link goes somewhere else.

Louise Harrison's book to be released this spring

My Kid Brother’s Band—The Beatles is scheduled for release in the spring of 2014.The book will contain hundreds of never-before-published photos of George and the Beatles, as well as images of correspondence documenting her communication with Epstein and with radio and recording industry executives as she worked to give the group exposure in the months leading up to the landmark Sullivan appearance.

 

According to 'Beatles Magazine' anyway

Saturday with the Beatles (KCSN in LA) is playing songs by and about The Beatles in 1964 right now. The "about" songs are pretty amusing.

^^ Thanks!

* A little more info on Louise's book via The Examiner. You can pre-order it, and it'll be signed by Louise.

* On the above-mentioned radio show, there was a plug for a new play at the El Portal in North Hollywood called "All Together Now" by one of original Beatlemania cast members. I remember they put on one of his shows last year... and it was similarly expensive. :-P
