On this day
3/9/1971
Paul McCartney made the decision to call his new band Wings

The Beatles was a hard act to follow
But I was a bit disappointed I didnt like Wings as much as I thought I would

They did produce some good songs including :
Band On The Run
Jet
Helen Wheels
Listen To What The Man Said

Live and Let Die
Silly Love Songs
Venus and Mars
Letting Go

What is it with those blokes putting their missus in the band?
In both Macca and Lennon's case, I mean, what were they thinking?

The highs and lows of 69 , All Those Years Ago
Man landed on the moon
Royce Hart made his debut for Glenelg in the SANFL Grand Final
On this day , John Lennon From Me To You told Paul Mac he wanted out from the FAB4
Ono , Lennon to become a Nowhere Man
This ultimately led to the band disbanding, never to Get Back again after the split.

BEATLE COVERS
The Beatles are arguably the greatest band of all time
2 of their greatest hits were covered by Australian bands

Nowhere Man : Sherbet
Eleanor Rigby : Zoot

I reckon the Aussie bands did a better rendition of the covers
Braithwaite's version of Nowhere Man , was one of his best ever efforts
Cotton did a great cover of Eleanor Rigby , and the heavier beat version by Zoot sways me to Zoots version being the better.

And you have Joe Cocker's version of Eleanor Rigby to balance those 2 against.
All different.

Time must be standing still for you Testy Very Happy - it was more than a few years ago.

Reckon it was in the 70s when the Voice released that.
It's on a live album of his that I have. I'll have a look if it mentions the release date.

Yes chambo it was awhile ago, 1980 to be exact, the single was produced by Graeme Goble of the Little river band before Farnham joined them.

I much preferred the Beatles version
I'm not sure if the Voice had the right voice for that song
But then again, could anyone have done a better job singing Sadie ?

Riveting programme seeing the two old masters in action
Some marvellous yarns insights and songs

Paul Mac said of the way he broke the ice with John Lennon
Story goes Lennon and his Quarryman buddys were performing
During a break Paul wormed his way to 'converse' with Lennon and Co
He did  transition of Twenty Flight Rock , and so very impressed upon Lennon , this led to the formation of arguably the worlds greatest ever band.

Twenty Flight Rock was released by Eddie Cochrane , a singer who had influenced Paul Macs early times with his sensational music
Eddie Cochrane lived a very brief life, he died in a car accident aged 21 , but left an indelible impression

George Harrison had a great voice--Still love listening to "Something" on which he was lead singer, and what a great band he was in called "The Traveling Wilbury's"

" I think the stumbling block was just sitting around and saying " OK lets do it"
And we never got to that
We talked about it , but I think if we had just relaxed behind it long enough we could have put it together"


By
Ringo Starr
On the Beatles to 'get back' together again

This has been brought up recently
Had John not been assassinated or George died then there was a chance of a reunion according to Ringo

Cant be done now
But 'imagine' how great it would be if Ringo and Paul did a gig

George Harrison at one stage went AWOL for a brief time
There was some uncertainty about whether he would leave the Beatles
John Lennon wanted Eric Clapton to join the band.
And why not, Eric Clapton had been involved two of the greatest ever rock bands in The Yardbirds and Cream

If it happened, I could have posted :
The Cream always rises to the top
