I'm pretty sure it's a Telecaster. (Fender)

and also whats the claimed sale of Rubber Soul, Revolver and The Beatles and will RIAA ever change it's certification or it's permanent, 'cause it is stupid to see "I Want To Hold Your Hand" has sold over 10M but it's certified Gold only.

@Hey Jude. I've moved your post to here, hope thats ok.

The Beatles record sales were discussed in the impossible to derail thread. The conversation begins at post #6604 and runs thru till 6613 before going off on a different trail.

Well I know that I will took 67 takes.

But I don't know if that is the most...

An interesting reference point would be the Nagra tapes for the Get Back sessions. There are days where they go thru 20 or 30 takes of a single song, but only 4 or 5 will be actual complete run throughs, with about 4 or 5 partial takes. Everything else is false starts, reference recordings, etc. 67 takes may sound insane, but I'll bet that a majority of those takes are as stated before and not complete run-throughs done out of OCD sake.

 

Edit: Sorry! I was rereading through the thread and I saw this was answered by @Hey Jude 

Speaking of which, the guitar George played was a rather rare Fender Telecaster made entirely of Rosewood, save for a maple laminate in the center. The guitar was specially made for him and was flown to England (in its own seat, no less!) by a Fender representative to present it to him. Rumor has it a rosewood Stratocaster was also made and given to Jimi Hendrix. Fender continues to reissue these instruments periodically, usually with an insane price tag (The last one sold for over $4000 USD street price). Honestly, it isn't too terribly different from a normal Tele except in visuals, and as such Fender Japan makes a reissue with laminated rosewood on the top and headstock for that "George Tele Look." If you are interested, Olivia still has this guitar! 

I would also recommend The Beatles Gear by Andy Babiuk as required reading for gear head aficionados like myself. For some more light reading, I'd recommend John Crowley's Cul-de-sac of Doom. He uses a lot of info from the Babiuk book, and his website is free! http://www.thecanteen.com/fabg.....itars.html

Hi! Why I am Brazilian, I do not understand, grammatically speaking, the kind of move that Ringo did to say Tomorrow Never Knows and A Hard Day's Night. I understand only a little, who knows me can you "give a little help?"

Nobody told me there'd be days like these!!

ahdn_paul_06 I think for the Hard Day's Night that their is an expression of A Hard Day's Work then Ringo looked around and saw it was night time so he said A Hard Day's Night

I want to know more about Number 62 here is the text

A chamber maid at a Dallas hotel where the band were staying in September 1964 was kidnapped at knifepoint by fans desperate to find out The Beatles' room numbers

Did that really happen? Where can I find more info?

If i remember correctly Ringo come out after a long day working and said "its been a hard day" or words to that effect before seeing it was night and so added "'s night" making 'A Hard Day's Night'. However it was also in John's book 'In His Own Write', appearing in the story 'Sad Michael' which was published earleir in the year (March 1964) so there is a bit of debate about who came up with it as you'd think Ringo would have seen it in John's book.

As for 'Tomorrow Never Knows' i think it was derived from the saying 'tomorrow never comes' and Ringo changed it to 'Tomorrow Never Knows'. 

I'm willing to be shown as wrong for both of these.

How "1" (compilation album) became so famous and sell so well and "Love" didn't and people do you think Beatles will be able to pull off another commercially successful album like "1"

Perhaps it is because 1 has the songs as The Beatles recorded/intended them (Wait don't get me mixed up in the stereo/mono discussion. I don't know which one 1 is. I don't think I have to get caught up in the US v UK running order when dealing with 1) and Love has someone else's arrangement of them. I haven't heard Love yet.

'1' was the first single disc Beatles compilation on cd that gathered together all the UK and US #1's, before it there was only the 1982 '20 Greatest Hits' on cassette and vinyl that had differing line-ups depending on the country. It was also the first hits greatest compilation released since 'Anthology', 'Live At The BBC' and all the hype and promotion that that period had generated so there was a large gap and possible demand. However the overwhelming success of '1' was unexpected and unprecedented. 

'Love' was more a remix, hear-the-beatles-as-you've-never-heard-them-before album and was promoted as such as well as featuring songs that weren't the big hits so the demand wouldn't have been as high.

Just as a personal opinion, I really love LOVE. It's a great album, and I think it's a fairly easy way to experience the essence of The Beatles in one convenient sitting. To me, it plays out like a sonic film almost, guiding you thru each song and each era as colored by time and opinion, but without being biased towards any one point. I love it greatly.

Where can I find the full schedule of The Beatles US/Canada tour during the Summer of 1964?

 

Edit: I also found this site which gives an in depth account of the tour. I find it funny how at one point a girl dropped from the ceiling right infront of Ringo

Of course, rather than scurrying off to other sites, the best place to find details of all things Beatle is here. To find full details of any tour, for instance, go to the top of the page, press the "History" tab, and (in this case) scroll down to August 1964, and from their flight from London to San Francisco on the 18th, through to their return to London on the 21st September, Joe provides a day-by-day look at the tour, covering all concerts, behind the scenes info, and what they did during their downtime and days off (including meetings with Burt Lancaster and Jayne Mansfield in Los Angeles, jamming with Clarence "Frogman" Henry in Key West, and an infamous encounter with Bob Dylan in New York).

@Starr Shine? and @Ahhh Girl, there really is no reason to go elsewhere. Don't make @Joe think all his hard work has been wasted!!!!

Thanks. Also, because this new server is quicker at running processes (including compiling blog archives) the page should load slightly quicker now. I know it has been slow in the past but there's no easy way to display that much info.

Are The Beatles the only group where the group has broken up and the members have gone on to write songs about the group?

For reference, see this thread.

Doubt it.

Dont know it if counts but 'Come Up And See Me (Make Me Smile)' by Steve Harley and Cockney Rebels was written about and after band mates had left and he felt deserted by them.
