'We made some incredible music. It’s great how well it holds up. The songs are still relevant; the kids are listening to the music today. It worked. And there were many, many magic moments, when it really worked. When you’re together, the band is together and the audience is together, it creates a magic moment. It’s a spiritual moment.' Ringo Starr

We are running a mini-serialisation of Ringo's new book "Photograph" over the next week to show some of the incredible photographs that Ringo took during his life in The Beatles.

Sir John Tavener

news

0 0

Our thoughts are with the family of Sir John Tavener, who died yesterday at his home with his family.

He was Britain’s foremost classical composer, renowned for his both profoundly religious and inspirational secular works. 

Both John Lennon and Ringo Starr took an interest in John Tavener’s music.  His first major composition, the iconoclastic and ground-breaking The Whale, was premiered at the Proms in 1969 and was recorded by Apple Records the following year, followed by the release of the extraordinary Celtic Requiem, a piece for orchestra and children’s choir, in 1971.

Andy Davis wrote: "John Tavener’s The Whale and Celtic Requiem are two of the most extraordinary records ever issued, certainly on Apple Records, and most likely on any mainstream label. A bold claim, perhaps. But listen first and then decide."

Jackie Lomax, signed to Apple Records as a songwriter and artist, has passed away in the Wirral, Merseyside after a short illness.

From the Apple released album "Is This What You Want?":

"Jackie Lomax is a singer of energy and passion. His roots are in R&B and in the best tradition of blue-eyed soul (even if his eyes are green). There’s a toughness to his vocal style and a sensitive side too; his songs speak of loss and longing, love and life. Is this what you want? What more can there be?"
