It is a good day because I am hosting Part 4 of Recipe Records Radio Show, which is a tribute to Sir Paul McCartney. I was very fortunate to see him in concert in St. Louis this past November and he exceeded every expectation I ever dreamed. It was one of those events where every song was better than the last and you couldn't have created a more perfect set list.
I had the pleasure of meeting a Beatles tribute band this past summer, The Beatle Brothers. They were outstanding...specializing in only early Beatle songs (their songs without piano.) One of the members, Del Herbert, has written & recorded a lot of fabulous material which I highly recommend to you. I felt that if he could write music (in the same manner as Paul) and perform Paul songs with The Beatle Brothers...then he would be smashing as a guest to discuss Macca.
Please listen live today at 2:00 p.m. cst - or tune in to the recorded show anytime in the future. Either way....you'll enjoy hearing some great stories about Paul McCartney.
And enjoy this Blurb from John Lennon author, Jude Southerland Kessler:
Late in life, John Lennon candidly admitted to an interviewer:
"Paul and I know each other on a lot of different levels that very few people know about.”
And it’s true…the up and down, angry and fond, competitive and encouraging, shouting and laughing friendship of John and Paul was something more private than John’s relationship with almost anyone. It was their differences that made The Beatles great. It was the yen and yang, the push and pull, the opposite forces at work that propelled The Beatles to the "toppermost of the poppermost!" The group with two leaders was so much stronger than it could ever have been with only one at the helm!!!
This is an excerpt from Jude's radio show, The John Lennon Hour, which airs each Sunday night at 7 p.m. CT on http://www.beatlesarama. com. To see the page of special photos of John and Paul and to hear the songs they wrote about each other and the Beatles tunes the wrote as a team, go to http://www.johnlennonseries.com/radioshow13.html Some of the videos are truly lovely!
