Anybody see Beatle-Paul, Beatle-RIngo, Yoko and Olivia Harrison last nite on Larry King/CNN? Appearance in regards to the "LOVE" show in Las Vegas. Have had the impression that show was sorta 'hokey' but learned a lot more about it and it seems quite cool actually. Some quality moments in the interviews as well.....great clips. Got a bit 'choked-up' meself when McCartney described holding Beatle-George's hand and talking about 'old times' in his final hours as he neared the end. Pretty good show.....of course Larry's back with Paris Hilton tonite. A friend has proposed the tho't...would she be anything if her name was "Boise Budgetel" ? Sorry, I digress.....

I thought it was great

Good to see that Paul and Ringo still have that sense of humor

Of course there were the sad moments as well....


Yoko managed to piss me off a few times
Shocking eh?

Wharf....

I actually tho't Yoko was quite humble, generous in her comments and gracious to the others..... A couple of abrasive comments...."I HAVE to protect John's work''.....but ...for her, pretty decent. It was pretty cool to see them all in the room together and I enjoyed the talk of 'the Brotherhood' of the Beatles. Gee.....where have we heard THAT before? Altho' he did a fairly good job....Larry King is the one who can make me cringe..... I expected any moment to hear..."Gee, Yoko....what was it like to have John murdered right in front of you?....American wants to know" Fortunately, he didn't go over the edge.....came close...but didn't go OVER!

Paris is like some hourly-rate motel where the bedspread and floor go psychedelic under that CSI ultraviolet.

I sensed Beatle-Paul being very protective of her....hell, she is 70! And, remember...Beatle-John gave her the 'blank-chek' in the first place. How did the line go...

"Papa's in the kitchen, makin' bread and honey...
Mama's in the countin' house, countin' all the money!"

That is until she sells John's solo writings to Paris Hilton

Rats! I missed the show! But I have to speak in defense of Yoko (yeah, I can't believe it either!). Look what happened to the bulk of the Lennon-McCartney catalog under Paul's watchful eye. A certain one-gloved freak-a-zoid singer purchased the songs while Macca wasn't paying attention. Now you near Fab-4 tunes used in a variety of television commercials and in movies and television shows where they basically have no context. Maybe if Yoko had been in charge this wouldn't have happened. I say this as a HUGE, devout Paul McCartney fan.

true..

Here is some more detail..

http://www.straightdope.com/classics/a951027.html

The last reason not to feel sorry for Paul is that if he got skunked it's his own fault. In the 60s, to avoid confiscatory British taxes, he and Lennon turned their publishing rights over to newly-organized Northern Songs, a publicly-held company in which they owned sizable but apparently not controlling blocks of stock. In 1969 music mogul Lew Grade launched a takeover bid for Northern Songs in which he offered seven times the stock's original offering price. Lennon and McCartney, feuding as usual, were unable to organize an effective defense and the company was sold out from under them. This made them even more fabulously wealthy than they already were, since their stock was now worth seven times as much. However, they were still pissed on account of, you know, the principle of the thing. The Teeming Millions can surely sympathize.

I found this....
Back in 1963, the Beatles gave their publishing rights to Northern Songs, a company created by their manager, Brian Epstein, and a music publisher, Dick James. Northern Songs went public in 1965, and John Lennon and Paul McCartney each had 15% of the company's shares, while Dick James and the company's chairman, Charles Silver, held a controlling 37.5% of shares. In 1969, James and Silver sold Northern Songs and its assets to the Associated Television Corporation (ATV).

In 1985, ATV's music catalog was sold, and Michael Jackson was the high bidder. Jacko paid a reported $47 million for the publishing rights to somewhere between 159 to 260 Beatles songs. A decade later, Jackson and Sony merged their music publishing businesses. Since 1995, Jackson and Sony/ATV Music Publishing have jointly owned most of the Beatles songs.

While the Jackson-Sony collection includes practically all of the Beatles' greatest hits, they don't have every little thing. Paul McCartney bought the rights to "Love Me Do," "Please, Please Me," "P.S. I Love You," and "Tell Me Why." Northern Songs never owned these early tunes, so they weren't included in the ATV deal.

By the way - what I posted above might be old news??

Didn't Sony/Jacko subsequently sell off the Beatles catalogue?

For the last 3 Tues. nights, I've been going to a little community class called School of Rock at our library, taught by the director of our youth symphony. A "History of Rock & Roll. Been fascinating, each class has more attendees than the previous. Last night's class was all about the Beatles. LOTS of good historical stuff I never knew. How hard John and Paul's childhoods were. John's fight against depression, starting in the late '60's. More info on Stu, Pete, Brian and George Martin. The contentious relationship with Capitol. The place of Rubber Soul and Sgt. Pepper in the history of music and production. Agreement was reached that there would be one additional class. Last night was supposed to be, the Brittish Invasion. We never left the Beatles.

At the end of the class, the teacher graciously gave me the floor for a minute. I mentioned that during the filming of Hard Day's Night, George met an extra, an 18-year-old model named Pattie Boyd. And assumed her name would come up later. Teacher says, "Oh yeah." Then I mentioned a band from Mississippi that opened for the Beatles in Europe, Delaney and Bonnie and friends....a band that moved to England, became close friends with George. And how George met Delaney's friend, Eric Clapton at their home, introduced by Bonnie. I then mentioned that most there probably knew of Bonnie from Roseanne or The Guardian, lots of head nods and smiles. Finally, I related spending a half an hour with her sitting on a bench in downtown Gadsden, listening to her talk about her days in Macon, and the fact that she had signed her recording contract here, and much of her upcoming album was recorded here. Lots of gasps, total quiet. I got a little emotional.

Showed the teacher the new HTN....he loved it.

Well, that's not really defending Yoko because technically it was Paul & Yoko's watchful eye. In fact, Paul has stated that he was trying to negotiate a price so they could buy the songs together, but she allegedly was dragging her feet and that's when Jackson bought the songs. - He has since said that he doesn't care if he owns the publishing anymore. I know they've been up for sale, but he said "I can't see paying that much money for songs I already wrote". That's not an exact quote.

My wife saw the Beatles LOVE productoni in Vegas and loved it. Very psychedelic production, amazing surround sound treatment of the tunes, all woven into each other like never before. She got me the soundtrack to this production and it's quite amazing. LOVE is well worth the time & $ if you are in Vegas, as if the CD & 5.1 surround DVD (no pics, only sound).

Peace

Saw earlier on CNN that the "Larry King Show w/Beatles & Wives" will have a 'special encore' presentation. Only problem is....I missed WHEN. Seems like in the next couple of days but I haven't had a time to do my homework. They repeat some of his shows on the weekend as well.....anyway...HEADS UP!!!
