WATCH PAUL, MARY AND STELLA MCCARTNEY IN NEW DOCUMENTARY SHORT

By Posted on 0 23

Ahead of the UN Climate Change Conference (COP 23) next week, the McCartney family has released a Meat Free Monday documentary short called ‘One Day a Week’ about the huge contributor to climate change that is often left out of conference discussions – animal agriculture.

Featuring Paul, Mary and Stella McCartney, Woody Harrelson and Emma Stone, ‘One Day a Week’ uses breathtaking aerial photography and hard-hitting facts to highlight the damaging environmental impact of animal agriculture and encourage people to help.

“There’s a simple but significant way to help protect the planet and all its inhabitants,” says Paul McCartney to camera. “And it starts with just one day a week. One day without eating animal products can have a huge impact in helping maintain that delicate balance that sustains us all.”

GEOFF EMERICK TALKED WITH BEATLES MAGAZINE

By Posted on 0 , 44

Geoff Emerick became an assistant engineer at the legendary Abbey Road Studios in 1962 at age fifteen, and was present as a new band called the Beatles recorded their first songs. He later worked with the Beatles as they recorded their singles “She Loves You” and “I Want to Hold Your Hand,” the songs that would propel them to international superstardom. In 1964 he would witness the transformation of this young and playful group from Liverpool into professional, polished musicians as they put to tape classic songs such as “Eight Days A Week” and “I Feel Fine.”

 

Then, in 1966, at age nineteen, Geoff Emerick became the Beatles’ chief engineer, the man responsible for their distinctive sound as they recorded the classic album Revolver, in which they pioneered innovative recording techniques that changed the course of rock history. Emerick would also engineer the monumental Sgt. Pepper and Abbey Road albums, considered by many the greatest rock recordings of all time.

Geoff Emerick was very kind. He talked with ‘BEATLES MAGAZINE’ about The Beatles of course, and he said:

Geoff Emerick:  “I had the pleasure and responsibility of working with The Beatles on so many of their recordings. In fact I was present in the recording studio for their very first session ever.

So you can trust I know good Beatles content when I come across it. If you google The Beatles you’ll bring up such a myriad of websites, you could spend a lot of time trying to find one that’s truly worthy of your attention.

I can direct you to a very good one indeed. Beatles Magazine has content that I enjoy myself and can recommend to every Beatles fan and aficionado.”

 

BM: Thank you so much Geoff.

A CHRISTMAS CARD WRITTEN BY JOHN LENNON IS ON SALE FOR $15,000

By Posted on 0 28

A Christmas card written by John Lennon is on sale for $15,000.

The festive note was penned by John, in 1968 for his wife Yoko Ono’s ex, music producer Tony Cox, and the former couple’s daughter, Kyoko Cox. The card, which is being sold on MomentsInTime.com, is believed to be referring to Yoko – who was married to Tony from 1962 to 1969 – moving out. It reads: “Dear Tony, we took most of the stuff I think … if we picked up anything of yours – or something you need (don’t panic!)

“We’ll put it back or send it depending where you are. Hope it’s o.k. there – it sounds it.

“Merry Xmas etc

“John and Yoko (sic)”

Another page of the note sees John asking Tony where the mastertapes of a 1968 concert Yoko performed are, and two of her short films. He writes: “We can’t find them.”

In the part addressed to Kyoko, the card reads: “To Dear Kyoko, A Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year, lots of love and kisses, John and mommy.”

In February 2016, a four-inch lock of John’s hair sold for $35,000 at auction. The ‘Imagine’ hitmaker’s tresses were chopped off prior to his 1967 movie role in ‘How I Won the War’. What’s more, his Rolls Royce Phantom V once sold for $2.23 million and lyrics to Beatles hit ‘All You Need is Love’ fetched $1.25 million.
