Growing up on Abbey Road

"We weren't allowed up there where the grownups lived." That's Paul McCartney in "Paul McCartney: Chaos and Creation at Abbey Road," a "Great Performances" installment premiering Monday at 10 p.m. At the beginning of the special, McCartney speaks those words while pointing to an elevated sound-engineering room in Studio 2 at Abbey Road Studios in London. Though the Beatles would make Abbey Road famous, they deferred to their elders in the early days of their recording career. Even now, "it terrifies me, this studio," says McCartney.

Paul McCartney, mash-ups, Macs and iPods

While the Apple Computer versus Apple Records case wends its way through the courts, former Beatle Paul McCartney isn't shy of new technology. As a thank you gesture at the end of his last US tour (which took place between September and November last year), McCartney gave everyone who toured with him a video iPod. A source also told Macworld that McCartney also uses Macs in his UK recording studio on the South Coast. McCartney also raised eyebrows when he performed at the Grammy Awards earlier this month. He sang a version of "Yesterday" with Jay-Z and Linkin Park. The reason is simple, the source said. When mash-up artist DJ Danger Mouse created the infamous 'Grey Album', he chose to mix the vocals from Jay-Z's 'The Black Album' and the Beatles' 'The White Album'. Though the remix was subjected to a cease and desist order by EMI, the move did win Danger Mouse one interested potential fan - Paul McCartney, who listened to the album in his car. "McCartney remains really interested in what's going on in the creative world," the source explained, "He likes to know what's going on." This interest in modern music culture also led McCartney to take UK DJ, remixer and musician The Freelance Hellraiser (Roy Kerr) along with him on his tour. Kerr won fame with a mash-up called "A Stroke of Genius", which combined an instrumental edit of The Strokes' track "Hard To Explain" with Christina Aguilera's pop hit "Genie in A Bottle". The DJ was given unique access to McCartney's own tracks in order to create remixes to play to the audience before each show.

Martin Demands Credit For Yesterday

Songwriter George Martin is demanding recognition for co-writing The Beatles' hit Yesterday, insisting he penned the track alongside SIR Paul McCartney.The song's composers are officially listed as McCartney and late Beatle John Lennon, but Martin claims McCartney added Lennon's name to the songwriters list, despite the Imagine singer having no involvement in the melody.He says, "We didn't know what to do with it. It was such a soppy tune, so I went away and wrote a score for a string quartet to go with it.
"Two days later I was rehearsing it and Paul McCartney walked in. He'd never seen a score before, and he said, 'It hasn't got my name on it.'
"So I handed him a pencil and he signed it."He wrote John Lennon's name too - although he had nothing to do with it - and added Esquire to mine."

Come Together

New works about George, Paul, and the Fab Four's cultural echoes fill holes in the Beatles' lives and music.

Here Comes the Sun: The Spiritual and Musical Journey of George Harrison By Joshua M. GreeneWiley, 307 pp., illustrated, $25.95

McCartney By Christopher SandfordCarroll & Graf, 430 pp., illustrated, $26.95

Reading the Beatles: Cultural Studies, Literary Criticism, and the Fab Four Edited by Kenneth Womack and Todd F. DavisState University of New York, 288 pp., $24.95

It has always seemed to me a convincing proof of the greatness of the Beatles that the bulk of ''The White Album" -- that voluptuous crack-up of a record, full of smut and lunacy -- was written at a meditation camp in the Himalayas. Geniuses that they were, at Rishikesh, India, the Beatles answered the pull of the transcendental with an equivalent downward thrust of their own; commanded by the Maharishi Mahesh Yogi to focus on bliss, nothingness, and the white light of eternity, they came up with ''Why Don't We Do It in the Road?" and ''Everybody's Got Something to Hide Except Me and My Monkey." Apart from George Harrison, that is. While John and Paul strummed and swapped their ribaldries, and Ringo went home early with tummy trouble (too much spicy food), George was rigorous, sober, down with the program. It had been his idea to go there, after all. His best Rishikesh songs are solemn and beautiful: the devotional murmur of ''Long, Long, Long" and the elegiac ''While My Guitar Gently Weeps." And according to Joshua Greene's ''Here Comes the Sun: The Spiritual and Musical Journey of George Harrison," in his solemnity the heavy-browed young guitarist would remonstrate with his fellow Beatles: ''Too much time spent writing . . . struck George as a distraction from their purpose in coming to India, and he said as much. 'We're not here to talk music. We're here to meditate.' 'Calm down, man,' Paul said. 'Sense of humor needed here, you know.' "

Was this the inspiration for Yellow Submarine?

When Wally the whale inadvertently swam up the River Thames it became the centre of an international media storm and hundreds of people turned up for a glimpse.But more than 50 years ago Merseyside had two stranded whales that people took to their hearts.Now, it seems, one of them may have been the inspiration for the Beatles' hit the Yellow Submarine and film. A rare drawing has been discovered by a close childhood friend of John Lennon and he is certain it sparked the idea for the pop ditty.

Life with Beatles, Clapton shown in ex-wife's photos

The images show some of the best-known names in pop music history in unguarded casual poses. The photographer, the former wife of George Harrison and Eric Clapton, certainly had a unique vantage point. For many years, Pattie Boyd was celebrated in song but kept a low public profile. On Thursday, she spoke about her life ahead of a new exhibit of her photos in San Francisco.
Pausing in front of her photo of Harrison and blues guitar maestro Clapton together with cigarettes in their hands in the mid-1970s, she reflected on the end of her marriage to the former Beatle around that time.

When Maharishi threw Beatles out

This is a true story of love and bitterness, recrimination and reconciliation. Its a story of glamour and spirituality, drugs and rock n roll. Its about four men whom the world worshipped, and the mentor they first adored, then abhorred. Its a story that has never before been told in its entirety, though gossip and rumours have swirled around it for years. Why exactly did relations between the Beatles and Maharishi Mahesh Yogi sour? Was there any truth to the allegations that the Maharishi had propositioned a friend of the Beatles? As an erstwhile disciple of the Maharishi, and a close friend of the Beatles, spiritual master Deepak Chopra is probably one of the few people who knew the real story.

Play Imagines Lennon's Final Thoughts

MILD-MANNERED actor Valentine Pelka only faintly resembled John Lennon until he slipped on a pair of blue-tinted granny glasses and let fly with a cheeky barrage of Scouse.Then it seemed as if the late superstar had walked into the room.
The British actor is here to appear as Lennon in And In the End, which opens in Sydney next month.
The play imagines what went on in the former Beatle's head during the last minutes of his life, after being shot outside his New York home in the Dakota apartments in December 1980, by deranged fan Mark Chapman.
Pelka performed the role to critical and audience acclaim at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, and after the Sydney and Melbourne seasons the show is heading to Broadway.

Macca In Grammy Walk-Out Row

Paul McCartney has been accused of being a bad loser after allegedly storming off when he failed to pick up the Grammy for Best Album.
According to Fox News columnist, Roger Friedman: "After it was announced that U2's How To Dismantle An Atomic Bomb had won, the ex-Beatle got up and left with his very arrogant bodyguard. "They weren't exactly subtle about it, either." Oh dear.

Chaos and Creation at Abbey Road Feb. 27 PBS

A thinly veiled promotion for Paul McCartney's new album or not, "Chaos and Creation at Abbey Road," airing Monday, Feb. 27, 10-11 p.m. EST on PBS (check local listings) as part of the "Great Performances" series, captures a legendary performer in top present-day form.Looking remarkably youthful, his singing voice only lightly touched by time, Sir Paul returns to the famed London studio where the classic Beatles albums were recorded. Surrounded by a small, casually dressed studio audience which gathered last July, he appears utterly relaxed as he reminisces about his early days as part of the Fab Four, explains the workings of some arcane recording equipment, demonstrates a variety of musical instruments from various guitars to Elvis Presley's bass player's instrument to an early synthesizer, and sings a range of songs from early favorites to Beatles evergreens to highlights from his new album, "Chaos and Creation in the Backyard."

Original lyric sheet to "A Day in the Life" on display in SF

John Lennon sat down at his piano on Jan. 17, 1967 and used a black felt-tip marker to start writing the lyrics to a song called "A Day In the Life."
He revised the song on the same sheet of paper that afternoon with fellow Beatle Paul McCartney and it became the centerpiece of the album "Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band."
Now, nearly four decades later, the two-sided lyric sheet is expected to fetch more than $2 million at auction.
"It's absolutely the finest rock and roll artifact to survive the 20th century," Martin Gammon, a book and manuscript analyst at Bonhams & Butterfields, said Thursday.Bonhams is auctioning the Lennon lyrics along with manuscripts that include correspondence from Gandhi, checks signed by Marilyn Monroe and a letter from author John Steinbeck to Martin Luther King, Jr. The lyrics and other rare books and manuscripts are on display in San Francisco through Feb. 12.San Francisco hippies were among the first Beatles fans to hear "A Day In the Life," which trumpeted a new psychedelic sound and features Lennon's memorable lyrics: "I read the news today, oh boy." George Harrison brought an early demo tape of the song to California and played it on the radio during his much publicized visit to Haight-Ashbury in 1967 during the so-called Summer of Love.The album was a radical step for the Fab Four and is now regarded as perhaps the most important rock album ever.
Gammon said Beatles manuscripts, especially those from the often-reclusive Lennon, are increasingly rare finds. Many Beatles songs were written on paper bags or scraps of paper and most were thrown away, he said.
"It's a window in time. You can imagine him (Lennon) coming up with the musical ideas that everyone now knows," Gammon said.
The value of the manuscript has increased exponentially in a little more than a decade, Gammon said. An unidentified American collector purchased the lyrics for "A Day in the Life" for roughly $100,000 in 1992 - considerably less than the likely winning bid in 2006. They originally belonged to former Beatles road manager Mal Evans.Gammon concedes it's ironic that the lyrics will sell for such a hefty price, considering that Lennon and Yoko Ono dropped off a closet full of possessions at a Salvation Army in 1977.Beatles fans can view the lyrics at Bonhams San Francisco office before they move to Los Angeles and New York.
Final bids on the manuscript are due March

It wasn't the first time Jay-Z and McCartney had collaborated DJ Dangermouse `mashed' the rapper's Black Album and the Beatles White Album together on The Grey Album.


Web-only guide: Lennon lore and more

The Beatles' 1967 pop masterpiece "Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band" includes the song "When I'm Sixty-Four," then an unlikely image of the four trailblazing young rockers from Liverpool. But had he lived, John Lennon would've turned 65 on Oct. 9, and he'd probably be amazed at the way his life has been analyzed, dissected and otherwise chronicled. Or maybe not: Lennon always had a sense of himself as a public figure, and he appeared well aware of the Beatles' impact on popular culture.

John Lennon: The Dream Is Over

There is really nothing that is unique about dying.
In the final analysis - despite the fact that the vast majority of us delude ourselves into believing that we'll live forever - we will one day all arrive at death's doorstep.However, there are those times when the death of an individual represents a freeze-frame in our lives and becomes a watershed moment to an entire generation.Most of us from a certain generation can remember exactly where they were when John Kennedy was assassinated. The untimely death of Princess Diana captured and held the attention of a newer generation as they huddled around television sets across the world.

Jude Law To Play Beatles Manager in New Biopic

Jude Law is set to play late Beatles manager Brian Epstein in a quirky, hallucinogenic biopic. After years of talks over "The Fifth Beatle" project, Broadway producer Vivek Tiwary has written a script which depicts Epstein's life through historical scenes, dream sequences and hallucinations.
Tiwary hopes to premiere the movie in Epstein and The Beatles' home city of Liverpool, England, in 2008. He has the blessing of Epstein's family and has been working closely with the latter's former business partner Nat Weiss and assistant Joanne Peterson.Tiwary also believes Epstein's August 1967 death of a drug overdose was accidental, not suicide. Epstein was just 32 when he died.

George Harrison's Widow Has Multiple Projects In The Works

There are several new George Harrison reissues in the works this year. Beatlefan magazine reported that Harrison's son Dhani said that among the projects on the front burner is a box set featuring remastered versions of Harrison's Apple records from 1968 to 1975, a new career-spanning greatest hits collection, a CD and DVD of Harrison's only solo U.S. tour from 1974, as well as reissues of all the albums from the artists on Harrison's Dark Horse record label from the mid-'70s.
Harrison's widow Olivia added that Harrison was working on his own Anthology video project at the time of his death in 2001 that she'd like to see finished. No word on when that or the proposed box set of solo outtakes and demos will see the light of day. Earlier this month, the first book to fully chronicle Harrison's religious and spiritual life, titled Here Comes The Sun: The Spiritual And Musical Journey Of George Harrison, was published. Author Joshua Greene, who recorded with Harrison in 1970 while a part of the Radha Krishna Temple -- a Krishna sect -- recalled to us that he was amazed at how down to earth Harrison was in the recording studio: We came in, he said hello to his friends, slapped a few old buddies on the back. Then he started laughing and yukking it up about people's reactions to a rock group with shaved heads -- because he was putting out these albums of Sanskrit mantras. Then he looked at his watch and said 'Y'know, we better get started, this studio is costing us 40 pounds-an-hour.'That was impressive. He might've been a Beatle, he might've been one of the richest, most successful guys around -- but he was very practical." Among the albums set to released as part of the upcoming George Harrison "Apple Years" box set will be 1968's Wonderwall, 1969's Electronic Sound, 1973's Living In The Material World, 1974's Dark Horse, and 1975's Extra Texture (Read All About It). Harrison's All Things Must Pass and The Concert For Bangladesh albums from 1970 and 1971, respectively, have already been reissued in expanded and remastered versions, as have all the albums in his 1976-1992 catalogue.

Here, There And Everywhere

To get the timeless music of the Beatles onto vinyl and put together the greatest pop music albums ever recorded. Recording engineer Geoff Emerick made full use of his soundboard skills and his ingenuity, work with the Fab Four and their producer George Martin to create records unlike anything the world had heard up to that point. Here, There and Everywhere : My Life Recording the Music of the Beatles (Gotham Books; $26.00; March 2006) is four-time Grammy winner and recording industry legend Emericks story of the years he spend at EMI studios at Abbey Road, working with the band to shape albums such as Sgt. Peppers Lonely Hearts Club Band and Revolver (recently named the #1 and #3 greatest albums of all time by Rolling Stone). Emerick started at EMI as a fifteen-year-old assistant engineer just in time to witness the first studio recording by the Beatles -- and by the time he was nineteen he was their main recording engineer for the groundbreaking Revolver, turning the sounds the heard in their heads into the music that would change the world.

John Lennon and the Flaming Red Rabbi

All we are say-y-ying is give peace a chance.Many of us have sung along with the famous John Lennon tune, a peace anthem recorded on June 1, 1969, in a suite in Montreals Queen Elizabeth Hotel.
Lennons death at the hands of a crazed fan recently passed its 25th anniversary, an occasion marked by a fresh crop of books about the singer. But only recently has it become widely known that a Toronto rabbi inspired John to write Give Peace a Chance the songs title and arguably its only memorable line. http://www.cjnews.com/viewarticle.asp?id=8403

The Beatles Now

The Beatles released Let It Be, the last of their thirteen albums, 36 years ago. Today there is no one musical group or soloist capable of commanding the attention paid to John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison, and Ringo Starr between 1964, when they first appeared on The Ed Sullivan Show, and 1970, when McCartney announced that the group was disbanding. Just as there is no longer a common culture, so there is no longer a common style of music to which most English-speaking people listen. Yet the Beatles and their music continue to fascinate successive generations of music lovers, so much so that more than two dozen books have been published about them, the latest of which is a thousand-page biography by the journalist Bob Spitz.
