The Recording Academy is going all out to honor the Beatles at this year's Grammy Awards, honoring the band with a Lifetime Achievement Award and helping round up an all-star cast of performers to commemorate their groundbreaking 1964 appearance on 'The Ed Sullivan Show,' and it's all got Ringo Starr in a rather nostalgic mood.
Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr may mark the 50th anniversary of Beatlemania hitting U.S. shores next month by performing together. Showbiz 411 reports that the two surviving Beatles could show up on David Letterman's late-night show during his network's week-long celebration of the Fab Four.
One of the first projects the Beatles undertook after forming their Apple Corps company was the expansion into retail. The fruits of that effort, the Apple boutique, opened on Dec. 7, 1967 at 94 Baker Street in London.
This was the closest the Beatles ever got to reuniting in the studio during John Lennon's lifetime, and the buzz catapulted Ringo Starr's third solo album to the top of the charts. 'Ringo,' released in the U.K. on Nov 23, 1973, would become Starr's lone platinum release.
In 1969, everybody had a hard year, and everybody had a good time. It was a year in which history seemed to be tripping over itself -- the moon landing, Woodstock and Altamont, and the slow disintegration of the Beatles.
If you read the news about Mark Lewisohn's massive new book about the Beatles' early years and wondered what it could possibly add to the band's legend, the answer is simple: absolutely nothing at all. In fact, as Lewisohn recently told CNN, he tried to wipe all that away and start over.
On November 22nd, two reports from John's high school...which detail his history of DETENTION...are going to be auctioned off. The sheets date back to the mid-'50s, and were authenticated by John's childhood friend Pete Shotten.
