LJ Plays The Beatles

Posted in Uncategorized on April 21, 2010 by Bertone

I’ve been on another Wings kick lately. I decided to re-listen to Laurence Juber’s “LJ Plays The Beatles” album this morning to quench my thirst for Wings and Beatles stuff. LJ was a member of Wings towards the end and has since become a renowned guitarist. The album in question is acoustic covers of Beatles classics and as you can see the cover is pretty awesome. I’d recommend you all check it out.

Saw him in concert earlier this year. Will have some material from that up later..

A great piece called “The Seven Faces of John” by Beatles artist Shannon, whom I had the pleasure of getting to know on the Beatles Tribute Cruise 2010. The picture has recently been selected as official art for John Lennon’s 70th birthday celebration in Liverpool.

Check out Steve’s “Beatles News Briefs” article. He talks about some recent developments, including yesterdays announcement of Paul McCartney’s solo and Wings catalog being reissued.

I’m excited for Paul reissues. I’m currently helping Jorie Gracen with her campaign to get Wings into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Wings reissues will certainly help raise awareness.

Great picture. I love how serious they all look. Lisa as George Harrison kind of works….Marge as Ringo Starr is very fitting since she did those paintings of him in the early episodes.
