    Post The Night Don Rickles Insulted the Beatles

    By Matthew Wilkening April 6, 2017 Ultimate Classic Rock

    Nobody – not even the Beatles at the height of their popularity – was safe from the barbs of the world’s most beloved insult comedian, Don Rickles.

    According to the Beatles Bible, the group attended a performance by Rickles, who passed away today at age 90, on Feb. 14, 1964 in Miami, Florida. “Probably everyone has heard of Don Rickles now,” explained Ringo Starr in the book Anthology, “but we hadn’t in those days, and he was playing in the Deauville Hotel where we stayed. He was a vicious type of comedian. He would say, ‘Hello, lady, where are you from?’ and she’d say, ‘Oh, I’m from Israel.’ He’d go to another table, ‘Where are you from?’ They’d say, ‘Germany,’ and it’d be: ‘Nazi, get out! What the hell is this?'”

    As Paul McCartney recalled, Rickles soon turned his acidic wit in the direction of the Fab Four. “We were all on one table with our policeman buddy, our chaperone – we had this one bodyguard who came everywhere with us; he was a good mate and we often went back to his house – and he started on him: ‘Hey, cop, get a job! What’s this? Looking after the Beatles? Great job you got, man, looking after the Beatles!’ He went on, ‘It’s great. They just lie up there on the ninth floor, in between satin sheets and every time they hear the girls screaming they go “Oooohh”.’ Very funny, we thought. We were not amused, as I recall. Very cutting. I like him now but at first he was a bit of a shock.”

    Perhaps because of this surprise, or maybe just because their world was moving so fast at this point, the Beatles didn’t stay for the whole show. In his 2007 memoir Rickles’ Book, the comic legend remembered that he was very happy to see the Beatles turn up, “mainly because the minute John Lennon and George Harrison appear, the lounge at the Deauville fills up. The Beatles are the new sensation, and everyone wants to see them. They take a table off to the side, and the girls start screaming. But the Beatles aren’t staying. They’re only here for a quick hello and a few pictures with yours truly. Just like that, they get up and leave. And just like that, the room goes from full to empty, and I’m up there entertaining me.”

    Default Behind-the-Scenes Footage From the Beatles’ ‘Help!’ Surfaces

    By Jeff Giles May 12, 2017 Ultimate Classic Rock

    Beatles fans can look forward to a never-before-seen glimpse behind the scenes of the band’s Help! movie, thanks to footage recently unearthed from the private archive of an actor who worked on the film.

    The Guardian reports that late actor Leo McKern, familiar to U.K. audiences for his later lengthy run on Rumpole of the Bailey, captured the band members during their downtime on the set at the Austrian ski resort Obertauern. According to the paper, the footage “shows the Fab Four being very larky and giggly, pretending to play instruments in a brass band and messing around with their stunt doubles.”

    McKern presumably viewed the footage after collecting it, but he never released it — and it remained stored away for more than 50 years until his daughter Abigail, who was also filmed playing in the snow, went through the family archives with actor and book dealer Neil Pearson in an effort to “help disperse her mother’s collection of children’s literature.”

    The footage is now being sold — the Guardian lists the asking price at roughly $45,000 — but first, it’ll be shown on British television. Tonight (May 12), Abigail McKern is scheduled to help present clips on the BBC program The One Show alongside Paul McCartney‘s stunt double and Eleanor Bron, who played a villainous high priestess in the movie.

    “It is unseen footage of people who were, at that time, the most famous people on earth,” said Pearson. “It is footage of golden age Beatles, fooling around between takes, waiting for something to happen … I know that feeling.”

    It's just incredible listening to all the various takes and seeing how these amazing songs were developed over time! Even things like hearing the development of the A Day in the Life's final chord, progressing from the hum of a few of the Beatles to a whole crowd, to becoming a piano chord... it's just mesmerising. Geniuses, the lot of them. Plus I love hearing their studio chatter! The dynamic they had...

    I'd love something similar for Michael Jackson but it's hard to see us getting such a release. Hope I'm wrong...

    Saw this on Vogue online-pretty nice.




    After 46 Years, Yoko Ono Finally Credited as One of the Songwriters of “Imagine”


    by PATRICIA GARCIA


    Photo by Ron Galella, courtesy of Getty Images




    Imagine you cowrote one of the most important songs of the century and never got any recognition for it. That’s exactly what happened to Yoko Ono, who for 46 years remained uncredited for her work in writing John Lennon’s iconic song “Imagine”—until now.
    The 1971 hit about universal peace, which pretty much everyone on earth knows the lyrics to, was honored on Wednesday with the National Music Publishers Association Centennial Song Award. At the ceremony, NMPA president and CEO David Israelite surprised Ono, who was only there to receive the award, by finally officially acknowledging the 84-year-old artist for her contributions to the song. “Tonight, it is my distinct honor to correct the record some 48 years later and recognize Yoko Ono as a cowriter of the NMPA Centennial Song ‘Imagine.’ ”
    After Israelite made his announcement, a clip of an old BBC interview from 1980 popped up on the screen, in which Lennon admitted his wife Ono had, in fact, helped him write the song. “Actually, that should be credited as a Lennon-Ono song because a lot of it, the lyric, and the concept, came from Yoko,” he said. “Those days, I was a bit more selfish, a bit more macho, and I sort of omitted to mention her contribution. But it was right out of Grapefruit, her book. There’s a whole pile of pieces about ‘Imagine this’ and ‘Imagine that.’ ”
    Now that we’ve finally cleared that all up, perhaps we could also put an end to blaming her for breaking up the Beatles, too? Imagine that.
