Peter Asher will induct Brian Epstein into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

EDIT: here's a link to one story (a much nicer one) which mentions that Peter will be the one to give the induction speech.

The Grammy Museum announced another member event: Gary Astridge discussing Ringo's Beatles Kits and Gear on April 27 at 11am.

Also, they're selling street banners from the Peace and Love exhibit at $229 a pop ($50 off for members).

Taken on its own merit (and being objective leaving aside personal tastes in his music) Ringo shouldn't be inducted on the basis of his solo work as aside from a couple of big selling albums and singles (all pre-1976) there is little of note in any measure. John and Paul are obvious, George has the Bangladesh concert to significantly raise his stock, Ringo, sorry but i can't think of much to back-up the case for (his drumming influence being covered by his time in the Beatles)).

At contactmusic via Beatles News:

Scott Rodger, the man behind Sir Paul Mccartney's current success, was named Manager of the Year at the Artist and Manager Awards in London on Thursday night (03Apr14).

Rodger went home with the top prize, which was bestowed upon him by the Music Managers Forum and the Featured Artists Coalition.

The longtime industry player was lauded for his work with artists like MCCartney and rockers Arcade Fire.

Robbie Williams was also honoured with the Artists Artist Award, and was commended for his "outstanding creative output, innovative business models and his support for artist rights."

Other awards recipients included Pharrell Williams (Artist of the Year), Rudimental (Breakthrough Artist Award), and Sam Evitt and Jack Street (Breakthrough Manager Award), who co-manage British acts Disclosure and Sam Smith.

Paul was caught on camera doing a crazy dance at today's Lakers vs Clippers game in LA. Also, there's a shot of him and Nancy on the Kiss Cam.

More on the Lakers/Clippers game Paul just attended. The article is about the player Chris Paul, but they article starts out this way:

He was booed at Dodger Stadium and two days later wasn't even the most fawned over Paul in his own building.

Whoever cued up the Beatles' "Can't Buy Me Love" inside Staples Center on Sunday might as well have been playing an ode to Chris Paul.

The song was intended as a tribute to Paul McCartney, who rose from his seat across from the Clippers' bench in the first quarter of their 120-97 victory over the Lakers and obligingly danced when shown on the scoreboard.

Ooooo, Paul McCartney being fawned over. Yes. I can do that too!

LA Times article on Stones manager Andrew Loog Oldham skipping the R&R Hall of Fame ceremony, with this quote mentioning Brian:

“I think those people basically hijacked the name 'Rock 'N' Roll,'” Oldham told an audience during a talk in March at the Berlin School of Creative Leadership.  “I won't be there.  I'll tell you why.... It's a television show.  Twenty years ago it was an incredible party in the Waldorf-Astoria where everybody could behave exactly as they could 20 years ago. And then it became a business. I think it's healthier to stay home.”

Oldham, 70, also apparently is unhappy about some facet of the handling of his induction. On Friday, he tweeted,  "Like Brian Epstein i was not consulted as regards this matter & like dear Brian I will not be going." Epstein died in 1967.

Cinefamily in Los Angeles is sponsoring a tribute to documentary filmmaker Albert Maysles this weekend. Unfortunately, I probably won't make it, as one event is at the same time as the Hard Day's Night screening in Hollywood and the other is members only. But here are the details:

 

Maysles Tribute Weekend:

MAYSLES RARITIES & EPHEMERA

(Albert Maysles in person!)

Saturday, April 12th | 7pm

"When Jean-Luc Godard calls you 'the best American cameraman,' as he did of Albert [Maysles], you know you're onto something." - Martin Schneider, Dangerous Minds

"When you first meet a subject, if your gaze is an empathetic one, you're all set." - Albert Maysles

Albert Maysles in person for a career-spanning Q&A! Today, viewing works of the pioneering duo Albert and David Maysles - in the age of reality TV, Snapchat and so many other forms of readily available documentation - is a liberating, emotional experience. They were two of the first filmmakers to bring feature-length non-fiction movies to the screen, with the triumph and tragedy of the Rolling Stones' Gimme Shelter, the zany eccentricity of Grey Gardens, and the quiet human zoo of Salesman. And, their uncompromising "Direct Cinema" approach to capturing life as close to "real" as possible, without scripts, pre-planned scenarios or narration (in response to the French cinema vérité movement) spawned generations of worshipful followers. These keen observers of life's rich pageant remain some of Cinefamily's most absolute favorite film artists - and tonight we pay tribute with a selection of extremely rare, knockout Maysles shorts from the vaults, including Meet Marlon Brando (a shockingly hilarious 1965 account of Brando's attention-wandering time spent on the press junket circuit) and Experiment On 114th Street (a gritty time capsule of a NYC ghetto block undergoing rehabilitation.)

 

Maysles Tribute/Members-Only:

WHAT'S HAPPENING! THE BEATLES IN THE U.S.A.

(50th Anniversary, Albert Maysles in person!)

Sunday, April 13th | 7:30pm

Albert Maysles in person! The most seismic events in modern American life can be traced back to single culture-altering calendar days of the Sixties: the day Man landed on the moon, the day JFK was shot, the day Martin Luther King, Jr. delivered "I Have A Dream" -- and the day the Beatles first touched down on U.S. soil, ostensibly to play on The Ed Sullivan Show, but really to open the floodgates on our permanent obsession with all things boppin' and British. Fifty years ago, on 2/7/64, the Beatles arrived in New York City -- and lucky for fans of all ages, documentarians extraordinare Albert and David Maysles (the incredible minds behind Grey Gardens) were there to capture all the wonderful clowning, anticipation and frenzy surrounding their whirlwind five-day visit. From the crazed airport reception to unguarded moments inside the Plaza Hotel (including a brief glimpse of Lennon messing about with a proto version of "Strawberry Fields Forever" on a melodica), What's Happening! vaults over remaining a mere historical document to becoming a highly insightful prime example of the Maysles' ability to capture candid gold anywhere they went.

Dir. Albert & David Maysles, 1964, digital presentation, 81 min.

Paul announced 4 US dates, with more to come.

"Remember, we are writing in the sky instead of on paper--that's our song. Lift your eyes and look up in the sky. There's our message. Lift your eyes again and look around you, and you will see that you are walking in the sky, which extends to the ground. We are all part of the sky, more so than of the ground. Remember, we love you." --John Lennon and Yoko Ono

"McCartney will play New Orleans' Smoothie King Center and on June 26th, he will set up shop at Louisville's KFC Yum! Center"

Those are actual venue names? They really have to take a look at naming rights and how silly the names end up.

Yes, it is. The Smoothie King's previous name was the New Orleans Arena until a few months ago. Smoothie King has awesome shops; however, as a name of a sports arena....no. ahdn_paul_01

 

Also I'm pretty giddy that he is coming to NOLA (concert wise) after 11/12 years! Finally....heartheartheart

LA Times article on Brian's Hall of Fame induction, featuring a fan video tribute.

Edit: I didn't know that there's an official site. I like that the bio section is called Life of Brian. :->

Edit2: Full transcript of Peter Asher's speech at The Examiner.
