Maybe they're afraid of what they might be walking into.

I wonder if folk who make offers not deemed high enough will be told not to let the door hit them on their way out.

^^ Buncha knobheads.

One of Ringo's shows schedule for October has been canceled. Hopefully it doesn't affect anyone here:

Ringo Starr's press office confirmed Aug. 4 that the Ringo Starr All-Starr Band concert scheduled for Oct. 12 at Snowden Grove Amphitheater in Southaven, Mississippi has just been canceled because of travel issues. “They hope to make it back there on a future tour,” Ringo's press representative told Beatles Examiner.

No other shows on the tour have been canceled, according to current information. The concert was one of 16 shows set for an October mini-tour by the All-Starr Band, who just completed a series of U.S. dates in July. The shows in the Midwest and South were to cover Nebraska, Texas, Mississippi, South Carolina and Florida. The additional shows were announced in June.

I'm sort of curious to hear what this sounds like.

From the official Beatles Facebook page:

Did you see The Beatles at Candlestick Park in 1966? Are you going back to see Paul at Candlestick’s final concert?

White Horse Pictures, who are producing the recently announced film with Ron Howard about the band's touring years, would love to hear your story.

Please contact the team at BeatlesLive@whitehorsepics.com

Paul is to play "Farewell to Candlestick: The Final Concert" August 14th, the last event at the stadium before it closes, and where

The Beatles played their final tour performance on August 29th 1966.

File under "news in the most generous sense":

Sir Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr have been invited to perform at 'Alien Woodstock' in a bid to make extra-terrestrials reveal themselves to the planet.

The two musicians - who were joined in The Fab Four by the late John Lennon and George Harrison - are wanted by UFO expert Michael C. Luckman to play at the proposed event in Malibu, California.

Luckman - who is director of the New York Center for Extraterrestrial Research - has a theory there is a huge underwater alien base located six miles off of Malibu's Point Dume in the Pacific Ocean and he wants to use a host of pop stars who believe in alien life to coax them out of their base.

As well as Paul and Ringo, Luckman also wants Yoko Ono - the widow of late Beatle John Lennon - her son Sean Lennon and Dahni Harrison, the son of deceased fourth band member George Harrison, to take part in the concert.

Rolling Stone and New York Times on Paul's collaboration on the video game score for Destiny. The theme song will be released as a single. No date on that yet, but the game itself will be out September 9.

Saw that - VERY mixed feelings on game forums - folks are worried over how much of the game budget went on hiring a Beatle.  I suspect not too much as he will make money if the single sells.

Saw this (and it's pretty much a direct transcript) on PBS Friday night, American Experience: 1964, regarding the Beatles' interactions with Sonny Liston and Cassius Clay in Miami in 1964:

"So they went to have a picture taken with Sonny Liston...and he took one look at [them] and said 'I ain't posin' with them sissies'.  So the Beatles...second best, they were taken to Cassius Clay't training camp...[the Beatles and the narrator, a reporter, were locked into a room and were "raging and cursing" about it, waiting for Clay]...suddenly the door bursts open - there is the most beautiful creature any of us had ever seen - you forget how big Cassius Clay was...he was laughing and joking...and he said 'C'mon Beatles, let's go make some money!  And they followed him out...like kindergarten kids...then afterwards, the Beatles leave, Cassius goes back into his dressing room...and says 'Who were those little sissies?'".

I just thought it was funny that both of them referred to the Beatles as "sissies" and the Beatles ended up having way more impact on the world than any sports figure (that I know of).  Pooh on them! (I shouldn't say that, poor Liston got embarrassed, and Clay [Ali] is at the end of a 25 year battle with Parkinson's)

Half of what I say is meaningless...

I feel good in a special way, I'm in love and it's a sunny day

Dailymail article on the auction of an early Beatles photograph.

One of the earliest photos of The Beatles in Liverpool's Cavern Club is to be auctioned along with a series of other recently unearthed snaps of the band at the beginning of their career.

The picture, taken in 1961, features Paul McCartney at the front of the stage and Pete Best on drums - a year before he was replaced by Ringo Starr

Stephen Bailey - the manager of The Beatles Shop, in Liverpool - said the memorabilia sale includes a series of negatives brought into the Mathew Street store by a man who casually told him: 'My father was a professional photographer and these might be of interest to you.'

Wonder if these people (not wearing black leather jackets) can be identified.
