R.I.P. Astrid Kirchherr


Astrid's influence on the Beatles was huge. She dated Stuart Sutcliffe at the end of his too short life. She gave the Beatles their iconic look and took brialliant photos of the band  while they were there honing their skills in the early days. If you have not read about the Beatles history in Germany you should check it out. It is a miracle they lived....

Geoff Emerick Beatles Sound Engineer RIP


Geoff was as close to being the 5th Beatle as anyone. Geoff was there from the first to the last session. I've studied Beatles lore since I was a kid and the Beatles would not have been the Beatles without the EMI staff especially Geoff. They only recorded outside of EMI a few times which I suspect other studios just weren't up to snuff. I highly suggest the Beatles recording sessions book.
 Wrap your brain around this and think about it Sgt.Peppers was recording on a freaking 4 track. Track bouncing bastards lol....


 

Thank you Geoff RIP.

The Beatles

I ran across someone this week who said The Beatles yuck I hate them.... Well this post is for you and you know who you are. I just picked a few at random. I don't like all Beatles songs or albums but they did some amazing work in such a short time. I personally prefer the chemically enhanced years. When I was 10 my mom was concerned as my favorite songs were Tomorrow Never Knows Revolution #9 and Helter Skelter lol. I loved anything that sounded different Too bad I didn't know about Stockhausen or at least have the Trout Mask Replica album back then.
Hey Bulldog

RAIN Killer bass and drums on this one.

I Am The Walrus Psychedilic pop perfection.

Strawberry Fields Dam near perfect.
