Re: The Beatles: Get Back Part 1
the film get back...which i have not seen...

had something like 54 hours of film they edited down to a couple of hours,

what they should have done is release the whole 54 hours for the people that want that,

these cats were the first to make THE reality show,

they were always looking for ways to do new things,

and get back was..although they did not realize it at the time,

the first big reality show... with all the bells and whistles inlcuded!...yoko stood out dramatically..for lack of a better word,

the reality show that never made it out of the box,

but now we have a movie...yay!

two boring hours...

i personally think there is a lot of good stuff in the rest of the reels,

such is the thinking of media corp. though

always limited in their way of thinking,

Every Beatles album cost more than the last. It's a fact.

Let it Be cost a stunning $35 when released with its glossy color book and the box. Not to mention the deliberate collections item run of the same material packaged as Get Back with a couple of old time rock cover songs included.

John Lennon knew how to make money.

Re: The Beatles: Get Back Part 1
I don't know if this is in the reels,

but if it is...I want to see their faces when yoko is wailing at john,

to get an idea of the situation...they are in the studio recording,

recording is a difficult operation,

having someone scream like that is/was annoying for those in attendance,

what do you do in a situation like that?

I can just imagine the look on their faces...

Re: The Beatles: Get Back Part 1
Read this about how McCartney was a dick to Phil Collins. Phil always pressed The Beatles as a huge influence on Genesis music. He politely stood in line, waiting his turn to have Paul sign McCartney’s book, when this occurred. I’ve hated PM since:

Re: The Beatles: Get Back Part 1
Wow, what an insight into the band!

Turns out Paul wasn't a tyrant, or bossy, just thrust into power by everyone else's attrition.

It's a shame that a few times he gently suggested George's guitar skills were not up to snuff and he should back off, but in a way George kind of sat there and begged for it. It is clear from the Doc that George had deeper things on his mind than the silly kind of pap that Paul was cranking out.

John might've been on Heroin at this time, the doc doesn't make it clear, but he was certainly functional yet very, very passive. He seems as if he felt dwarfed by Paul's musical genius and was happy riding side-car and taking 1/2 credit. Not in a greedy way, just an empty tank who happened to have a pretty sweet deal.

Ringo...who did you murder??? Why is Ringo so fucking sad? His wife too, she comes in and is a Depressive princess. Ringo is all about his upcoming movie roll and he can always crank out a working beat on command, no worries, except whomever he murdered haunting him.

Yoko: she doesn't seem to have bothered anyone and was respectful and probably kept John intact. I can see how she was kind of cute and they seemed like real love between them.

Linda: A Nikon shooter, so thumbs up from me.

Clearly Paul was the Beatles at this time, and his only fault was being super creative and versatile...filled with rich musical ideas that were overwheming to John and not interesting to George.

Can't wait to see how it all comes together.

Re: The Beatles: Get Back Part 1
Ringo was sad because Paul was dead. Look at the early footage of Paul, then there's a little break where they announced the Beatles wouldn't play out anymore, then the bearded, 3" taller, 20 pound heavier, old lady faced Faul is the rest of the show. (Paul and John were the same size, could wear each other's suits.)
Billy could adopt anyone's singing style, his dad was a music professor, he was an accomplished pianist. He was a perfect stand in after some surgery.

The three were demoralized.

And may I introduce to you,
the one and only Billy Shears
and Sergeeant Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band..


Faul was a good pianist- Paul was not.
Faul made a string of cover singles under the name of
Billy and the Pepper Pots.

Don't bother trying to tell me otherwise, I've known this for 50 years now.

Here's Faul before he got to be a real Beatle.

I guess being knighted by the queen helps him keep his mouth shut.

Of course, Paul and Ringo are the only ones still alive and I don't think Ringo gives a shit. And "Paul" isn't "Paul" anyway. He's Faul.

Whole doc sounds phony - based on "Paul's" perspective.

Thank you for the link.

I was 10 when the Beatles came. The Cavern, Hamburg.

This is how I learned English, from the BEatles and Bob Dylan songs.

I am going to watch it.

How many parts will there be? Please post the other parts when they come up.

I want to see it.

Re: The Beatles: Get Back Part 1
Paul was driven. He wanted to be everywhere. Do everything.

Pink Floyd, Dark Side of the Moon. Paul was at the recording sessions.

He marries into money with a sensible woman who markets vegetarian food.

Paul is the consummate professional.


But this is rock n roll.


George hooks up with a gorgeous model, Eric Clapton steals her away, they remain friends, and George gets into ISKCON.

Post breakup the first successful act is Ringo, with the others pitching in to help make the album.

John steps back from the lifestyle to raise his son.


Meanwhile Paul sticks to the mainstream.

James Bond theme. Pop albums every year. Tours. Acting. Latching onto big acts (Stevie Wonder & Michael Jackson duets)

He's the man of the people.

My brother met him in the early 80s when he was interviewed for the job as a chef.

A colleague said he knew an old woman who kept saying she was a cleaner at his estate. He thought she was bullshitting until Paul showed up to her funeral.

He's probably the hardest working man in music, with constant tours and songwriting.


But people remember John getting shot. Morrison in the bathtub. Kurt blowing his head off. Richards off his head. Crazy Keith Moon.

People will always remember the Beatles as a band, greater than their individual parts. They influenced music in the 60s like no other.

Re: The Beatles: Get Back Part 1
Go further to 13:00. BEhind John Lennon you will notice one of the Hare Krishnas sitting in a lotus, reciting his mantras on his beads.

John Lonnon and George Harrison financed the Hare Krishnas at the time. George gave them a mansion near Watford, Herts. now called Bhaktivedanta Manor
[link to www.bhaktivedantamanor.co.uk (secure)]

while John Lennon had organized the first Hare Krishna 33RPM recordings - that was before the "Manor" came up.

[link to en.wikipedia.org (secure)]

I remember when they cut the record in 1971. I used to go eat at their Temple at 7 Bury Place near the British Museum. The food was really good and filling and free.



[link to www.youtube.com (secure)]

Yoko Ono hated the Hare Krishnas. John had to separate from the group, while George Harrison stayed friendly and in excellent terms with them until he died.

Richard Branson had an upstairs twin room shop where he sold his bootleg vinyl recordings. His mother would stay in the shop while he went out for the concerts and recordings.
He promoted the Hare Krishna record and sold it in his store which was nearby the Krishna's temple.

Those were great years.

All the bands back in those days did not have any of the tech they have now and yet they did way better.

Most of today's music is total crap with only synth/sampling and no real instriments.

I have no interest.

Back on topic... Yoko was always glued to Lennon. Always sitting there, doing nothing. What kind of an inspiration she could have been? I have no idea.

I am certain the BEatles disbanding was mainly because of her. She had so much power on Lennon... so much influence... It was unreal.
