That scares the living daylights out of me! The Harrisonette has competition…   

The Harrisonette reigns supreme over all because it’s considerably lifelike and IT MOVES, FER ZEPPSAKE paul-mccartney AAAAGH
whereas LPD’s statue is not realistic (let’s face it, Ringo isn’t actually turquoise) enough to be actually scary.

In my (hardly!) humble opinion, anyway…

For a while I had some Sticky Note Beatles taped up on my wall. They were badly drawn faces each representing a Beatle. Sadly they all fell behind my bed. RIP. They were a good tribute…a-hard-days-night-paul-10

A new Beatles mural, by Liverpool-based street artist John Culshaw, has appeared in Liverpool’s Baltic Triangle on Watkinson Street:

I came across this picture today with a sculpture of the Fab Four in front a Beatles Bar in Cuba.

I searched the forum to see if anyone else had posted about the statue before. I found a thread mithveaen created some time back.

Don’t know if these crop up elsewhere, but if they have, they still deserve a mention in this thread.

Benton, Illinois, the first place in America to be visited by a Beatle when George and Pete went to see his sister, Louise, who lived there, in September 1963, and for some time they have had a plaque commemorating the visit:

Harrison-Plaque-Benton-Illinois.jpgImage Enlarger

In 2019, near Interstate 57, on Airport Road, they added a 16-foot freestanding mural of George playing guitar with screaming girls looking on.

There’s a postcard which describes its creation:

“George Comes to Benton- 1963” – This mural installation, painted in 2017, commemorates the first visit by a Beatle to America. Several months ahead of the British rock group’s big splash on US soil in early 1964, George Harrison and his brother Peter came to Benton, Illinois to visit their sister Louise and her family. The Beatles were unknown to Americans, despite being at the top of the charts in England, and George was able to remain anonymous during his two week stay. He played with a local band, bought a guitar in a neighboring town, and mostly hung out as a tourist. The Beatles were about to explode on the world stage, and for years to come, folks in Southern Illinois would recall the police young man with long hair and a funny accent. Created by California artist John Cerney, the 16-foot-tall mural is located along Interstate 57 in Benton, Illinois.

And it’s lit-up at night:

I like the way it shows a black-and-white world turning to colour.
