Many congratulations to George who is honoured with The Recording Academy’s Lifetime Achievement Award at the 57th Annual Grammy Awards.

From The Recording Academy: "Multi-instrumentalist and singer/songwriter George Harrison achieved international fame as a member of the Beatles, one of the most influential groups of all time. The 12-time GRAMMY winner’s embrace of Indian music is often credited with helping introduce world music to the West. As a solo artist, Harrison achieved success with projects such as his GRAMMY Hall Of Fame® inducted album All Things Must Pass and The Concert For Bangladesh, the latter of which garnered an Album Of The Year GRAMMY.”

To celebrate the publication of Ringo Starr’s PHOTOGRAPH memoir, on September 25 at 8:00pm, Ringo Starr will appear on stage at LA’s historic El Rey Theatre. During the course of a moderated conversation, the audience will be invited to join Ringo Starr looking through rare and unseen photographs drawn from his personal archives. Ringo Starr will be revisiting memories of his life in music – from his early childhood days in Liverpool through to The Beatles and beyond.

In the words of Ringo Starr:

‘These are shots that no one else could have. I just had the camera with me a lot of the time. There’s a lot of shots of "the boys" that only I could have taken. Together they chart the story of four lads from Liverpool trying to live normal lives amidst the frenzy that surrounded them.’ – RINGO STARR

"As all the other drummers say, he just is something so special. When he’s playing behind you, you see these other bands, they’re looking around at the drummer, like, is he going to speed up, is he going to slow down? You don’t have to look with Ringo.

It’s a great honour for me to be able to induct him into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland tonight!”

"Albert Maysles was a beautiful human being. The many times I hung out with him it was always a pleasure. He was a pioneer of his time, even for a short man. He will be missed. God bless him. Peace & Love, Ringo” 

Albert Maysles, legendary documentary filmmaker, has died. Albert chronicled the Beatles first visit to the USA in 1964 in the unique candid style that he had pioneered with his brother. It was to become the inspiration for their film “A Hard Days Night”.

On this day we are remembering George.  

Here is a special announcement from http://georgeharrison.com

Get Back To Mono: Beatles’ Recording Engineer Ken Scott On The Best Way To Hear The Fab Four

news

0 0

by Jordan Runtagh (@JordanRuntagh)

An Excerpt from VH1.com

The Beatles In Mono is perhaps the most crucial Beatles release for those who were not privileged to live in a time when the four Fabs roamed the Earth. For a start, just use your ears. Far from a relic, the sound is more alive, full, and frightfully contemporary than ever before. And that’s not just our opinion- it’s also the opinion of Ken Scott, the music industry great who got his start as the Beatles’ recording engineer. Prior to his groundbreaking work with a list of legends including David Bowie, Elton John, Jeff Beck and Supertramp, Scott was in the room when some of the Beatles’ classic recordings were being made, and had his hand on the fader when the original masters were created. Who better to say how these records are meant to sound?

Paul McCartney calls on people to back #MFMclimatepledge ahead of the UN Climate Summit on Tuesday 23rd September 2014.
 
With just days to go until the UN Climate Summit in New York, Paul McCartney has called on people to back the Meat Free Monday Climate Pledge campaign.  As well as being responsible for a huge chunk of global greenhouse gas emissions, meat production requires increasingly unsustainable levels of precious resources – land, water and energy – and is a major contributor towards global environmental degradation.

#MFMclimatepledge aims to get people to commit to a weekly meat free day so that global leaders can see the magnitude of support and enable them to take the idea forward.  Please take a couple of minutes to visit http://pledge.meatfreemondays.com, pledge to go meat free for one day a week and share the idea with others.
