Ex Beatle to bring all his loving to Moscow


Ex Beatle to bring all his loving to Moscow

Published: 29 November, 2011, 20:00
Listen to what the man said, especially if it is his majesty Sir Paul McCartney confirming his highly-anticipated live gig in the Russian capital in mid-December.
The iconic 69-year-old singer once promised he could “work it out” and has kept his word to the Russian organizers of his concert, scheduled for December 14.
According to his Moscow managers, “the scale of the show can be verified by the number of the personnel, the amount of equipment, the quality of state-of-the-art light, sound and lavish scenery.”
Apart from tons of stage equipment, the former Beatle is also set to bring to Moscow the new Mrs. McCartney, Nancy Shevell. The 51-year-old American brunette is rumored to be three months pregnant.
The Moscow show is part of the world tour which has kicked off in New York and will continue with six gigs in North America and Canada, after which McCartney will finish with some European dates.

Beatle’s sister pens tell-all book

Louise Harrison opens up about the Fab Four


George Harrison remembered ten years on

added: 29 Nov 2011 // by: Noise11 
Ten years ago today, George Harrison lost his battle with lung cancer at the age of 58, ending one of the most influential musical lives ever led.

Harrison gained a reputation for himself as 'the quiet Beatle', often preferring to leave the spotlight to his more vocal band mates. During this time, however, he was the songwriting master behind some of the most highly regarded songs of the band's career including 'While My Guitar Gently Weeps', 'Here Comes The Sun' and the cheeky stab at the tax department who were, at the time, taxing the band 95% because they found themselves in the top earners in the country, 'Taxman'.

'When you think about it, the four egos, it's amazing they did anything because they're all very strong people,' producer George Martin said in a BBC Radio Documentary on Harrison.

'He got a bit fed up because his own music wasn't recognised, by me as well, I'm guilty. I took the two geniuses and ignored the third,' he regretfully admitted.

Harrison didn't start out writing such hugely influential numbers though. In 1958, when the band was known as The Quarrymen, he wrote the band's very first original song with Paul McCartney (who would later split all of his songwriting royalties with John Lennon). The song 'In Spite Of All The Danger' was a Buddy Holly-inspired tune with Lennon on lead vocals.

George's solo career started before the demise of The Beatles, with his first album 'Wonderwall Music', recorded partially in Bombay. It was the soundtrack to a 1968 film 'Wonderwall', directed by Harrison himself.

In 1969 he released the experimental album 'Electronic Sound', which was entirely composed on the Moog synthesiser, but it was in 1970 after the split of the Beatles when he began to use his solo career as a vehicle for his pop songs releasing the first triple album ever released by a solo artist: 'All Things Must Pass' which features some of his most iconic solo songs, including 'All Things Must Pass' and 'My Sweet Lord'.

During The Beatles Harrison had twenty two of his songs recorded by the band, which made the seventeen songs included on 'All Things Must Pass' seem quite overwhelming for fans of the quiet one.

After the madness that was The Beatles split in 1970, Harrison was the first of the four to step out of the rubble and hit the stage again, organising the Concert for Bangladesh at the suggestion of his friend Ravi Shankar. The concert was to raise money and awareness of the violent Bangladesh Liberation War in which West Pakistan launched an attack on what was then East Pakistan after the Bengali people began to demand independence. The Concert for Bangladesh was one of the first all-star shows where musicians from different bands performed together creating supergroups.

The concert was held twice ' once at midday and once later that night ' on August 1, 1971 and featured performances from George, his former band mate Ringo Starr, Eric Clapton, Bob Dylan, Billy Preston, Leon Russell, Ravi Shankar and more.

In 1973, on the album 'Living In The Material World', Harrison took a stab at the litigious breakup of the Beatles in the song 'Sue Me, Sue You Blues' where he sang about the ludicrous situation they all found themselves in. 'I'm tired of playing the sue me, sue you blues,' he concludes the song with.

That year also saw him collaborate with Ringo Starr, cowriting two songs for his album 'Ringo'. The lesser known 'Sunshine Life For Me (Sail Away Raymond)' invokes a bluegrass influence, while 'Photograph' ' which was a single ' sounded more like a 'traditional' Beatles song.

His next explosion was with a cover of Rudy Clark's 'I Got My Mind Set On You' on his 1987 album 'Cloud Nine', but it was a year later when he united with Bob Dylan, Roy Orbison, Jeff Lynne and Tom Petty to become The Traveling Wilburys.

Their debut album 'Vol. 1' (1988) wowed audiences who until and since then had never even fathomed a band loaded with such talent.

His final album 'Brainwashed' was released posthumously in 2002. It was produced by his son Dhani and E.L.O.'s Jeff Lynne. The final song he had ever recorded was 'Horse To Water' and appeared on Jools Holland's album 'Small World Big Band' in 2001. It was recorded two weeks before his death.

Following Harrison's death thousands of fans turned out across the world to publicly grieve. In London, where I had lived at the time, fans had descended on the famous Abbey Road studios.

The most spectacular tribute came on November 29, 2002 ' nine years ago today. Spearheaded by Eric Clapton, George's friends converged on London's Royal Albert Hall to commemorate the first anniversary of his death.

During this night, musicians as diverse as Joe Brown ' who took The Beatles on their first tour of the U.K. ' Eric Clapton, Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers, Jeff Lynne, Billy Preston, Ravi Shankar's Orchestra, Jools Holland and Sam Brown, Jim Keltner, Klaus Voorman and many more.

In 2011 'Living In The Material World', a documentary on Harrison's life was released into cinemas. It was directed by Martin Scorsese and has once again succeeded in putting George Harrison in the front of everyone's minds.

On hearing of his death, Paul McCartney described him as 'a very strong loving man [who] didn't suffer fools gladly, as anyone who knew him will know. He's a great man, I think he'll be remembered as a great man in his own right.'

'I love him. He's like a baby brother to me,' he added.

Ten years later, George Harrison is remembered for exactly that.

Liverpool to mark 10 years since George Harrison’s death

George Harrison

TEN years since George Harrison died,  Liverpool will unite to celebrate his life.
Across three events tomorrow, the city will commemorate the former Beatle, who died of lung cancer on November 29, 2001.
“Liverpool will pay a special musical tribute to its beloved son throughout the day,” said organiser Denise Theophilus.
There will be a short Liverpool Cathedral at 11.30am.

“People are invited to bring a flower or a paper symbol of peace, with a suitable prayer written on it as love and peace were the precepts most dear to George,” added Ms Theophilus.
At 2pm the city will stage the Free Concert For George in the Concert Room at St. George’s Hall. In the presence of the Lord Mayor, bands marking different eras of George’s life will perform.

The acts include Jeff Slate (of the Badge), Lee Christian (of Smilex), Singh Strings and The Rebels, Tsema, The Liverpool Ukelele Orchestra, The Mersey Beatles and Andre Barreau (George in The Bootleg Beatles).

Uscirà in febbraio il nuovo album di Paul McCartney


Durante un intervista, che sarà trasmessa il primo di dicembre su Radio 2 alle ore 21.00, durante il programma Moby Dick, McCartney ha dichiarato che il suo nuovo album uscirà a febbraio e vedrà la collaborazione di Diana Krall e la sua band. Attendiamo fiduciosi... 

Paul ad Assago...qualcosa di strepitoso..


Paul ad Assago...qualcosa di strepitoso..

Va bene che per me questo è stato il primissimo concerto di Paul, quindi sarà anche l'emozione che mi fa dire certe cose, ma.. il concerto di ieri sera è stato strabiliante!
Un Paul in formissima, proprio come me lo immaginavo da una vita! Un animale da palcoscenico, un alieno, una divinità, o, come ha detto un mio amico, una Santità. Il primo che mi dice che è scarso con la voce lo mando a quel paese.
Sale sul palco alle 21, con la giacchetta "beatlesiana "nera col colletto rosso . 
Attacca con "Hello Goodbye", al posto di "Magical Mistery Tour" .  "Ciao Milano" ..e mi sembrano le parole più belle mai pronunciate prima.
Prosegue con "Junior's Farm" e "All my Loving"..e a quel punto sono già in lacrime...E via proseguendo con "Jet", "Drive my car", stupendissima, "Sing the changes", dall'album "Fireman2, fino ad arrivare a "I will" che ha sostituito "And i love her". Stupenda "Come and get it", che mai avrei immaginato un giorno l'avrei sentita da lui dal vivo. Eccelsa "1985", una delle mie preferite. Poi è la volta di "Maybe i'm amazed", altre lacrime.. Alla fine di "Dance Tonight" accenna a "O sole mio", come a Bologna la sera prima e si arriva a Mrs Vanderbilt, l'adoro..Tra canzoni degli Wings e dei Beatles siamo arrivati quasi a fine concerto e il mal di piedi si fa sentire, ma Paul dà la carica e quando parte con "Live and let die" il mal di piedi è dimenticato.
Poi c'è Hey Jude, un capolavoro assoluto, non ha bisogno di commenti, e ancora oggi la canta con gli "occhioni" azzurri.
Poi esce e torna sul palco per il primo dei due bis...e attacca con "The word" e "All you need is love", belle belle belle...Poi "Day Tripper" e "Get Back".."Do you wanna get back?" chiede come di solito fa ai suoi fan ..e alla risposta affermativa del pubblico risponde.."me too". Ed è il momento del secondo bis..la fase finale del concerto, e Paul sale sul palco con la bandiera italiana. E' la volta di "Yesterday", la canzone perfetta, "Helter Skelter", un'altra di quelle canzoni che desideravo con ansia ascoltare dal vivo, infine il "medley".."Golden Slumbers"...e qua si sprecano le lacrime.."Carry that weight", "The end". 
E se ne va, tra un tripudio di "coriandoli" tricolore, non prima di aver detto il suo "See you next time"...E lo spero vivamente di cuore Paul..adesso che so cosa si prova, lo spero davvero. Ci vediamo la prossima volta.

Paul McCartney a Bologna

BOLOGNA / “Ciao Bologna, come va? E’ bello essere qui per la prima volta”, Paul McCartney ha aperto così il tour 2011, davanti ai 12 mila spettatori dell’Unipol Arena di Casalecchio di Reno, cantando Magical Mistery Tour. IMMAGINIUn’altra tappa di “Macca” è prevista a Milano, poi il viaggio si concluderà a Liverpool il 20 dicembre, a Bologna sono arrivati da ogni parte per il “baronetto”, anche da fuori Italia e come sempre la sua voce potente e melodica ha saputo incantare fans di tutte le età, dagli affezionati e nostalgici ai giovanissimi.
Paul McCartney ha sfoggiato a Bologna il meglio del suo repertorio, i pezzi con i Beatles, quelli da solista o con i Wings, 39 in tutto i brani, esclusi i vari bis.
“Grazie molte”, ha detto in italiano e sempre in italiano ha annunciato “The night before”, dicendo: “questa è la prima volta che la canto in Italia”, suscitando urla ed applausi in platea.
Tra i titoli, All my loving, Got to get you into my life, Paperback writer, Long and winding road, Let it be, Live and let die, a ritmo inesorabile, con tanto di fuochi artificiali sul palco, dei quali però McCartney si è lamentato, per il fastidio alla gola e agli occhi.
Non sono mancanti gli omaggi ai colleghi scomparsi che lo hanno accompagnato durante la sua vita, George Harrison, John Lennon, Jimi Hendrix.
E neppure quelli accanto ai colleghi italiani, Dodi Battaglia dei Pooh e il bolognese Lucio Dalla, dopo aver sventolato il tricolore assieme alla Union Jack.
La voce, l’energia, l’entusiasmo e la voglia di esibirsi di Paul McCartney a 69 anni, sono rimaste intatte, la passione per la musica e la carica trasmessa ai fans, forse è perfino più forte rispetto a 40 anni fa.
