When you think of rock bands and the letter B -- well, who else but the Beatles!!
The "Mop Tops" as they were dubbed, in 1964.
Oh the horror -- long hair!!
Ha! Those parents didn't know what was coming in the 70s!
I had their first two albums and unfortunately, they were stolen! By movers if you can believe it. When we were moving to the house we are in now, we hired a local moving company -- we were only moving a few miles to another town -- and things got hectic at the very end. We had several boxes of albums, and one of them apparently had not been taped closed. The next day when we were shuffling boxes around, I noticed that untaped album box, looked inside, and didn't see my Beatles albums (they would have been in that particular box). Frantic, I checked the other boxes -- no Beatles. It had to be those movers. It was dark when they finished the move, and things were crazy, so they had ample opportunity to snag a couple of vintage albums. And, the Beatles were at the front of that box.
We had signed off on the move, signifying that we received everything, and there was no way to prove it anyway. Bums me out to this day!
John was always my favorite -- what a talent! And such a loss when he was shot and killed in December of 1980. I had just had my son and was home when the news came on to tell about his death. I always seem to be at home when the big tragedies happen....
Check out this statue of John -- it's in a public park in Havana, Cuba.
If only the world could be like this song...
If you've never heard the Concert for Bangla Desh then you should! It is beautiful. I have the original album and then my hubby gave me the CD box set a few Christmases ago. (we don't have a stereo anymore!)
My Sweet Lord
This is one of my favorites and is on the Bangla Desh album
Did you know that Ringo was the narrator for Thomas the Tank Engine? I didn't know about Thomas until my granddaughter came along and I enjoyed the cute show and Ringo's voice, and also George Carlin who also narrated it.
I like the way Ringo looks here -- much more handsome!
And, of course, Paul was the cute one!
OK, this one's better...
Abbey Road was the last album they recorded. There have been lots of outtakes of that photo and funny ones made by others -- go here on Google Images to see a bunch! Pretty funny!
♥♥♥ Linking the Beatles to Alphabe-Thursday over at Miss Jenney's where we are studying the letter B.
