New George Harrison compilation is in stores today. Just don’t expect to find it at Wal-Mart. Lame. I hope they don’t make this same mistake for the remasters.

Here are a few Beatles news stories taken from a few different sources.

From our buddy Steve Marinucci, the Beatles Examiner, we have the following,

A chat with Laurence Juber, formerly of Wings.

A new and odd Beatle trend of Twitter (be warned)

A Beatles news brief on various things including the upcoming George Harrison compilation.

We also have the following from What Goes On,

Mark Ronson talks about joining Sean Lennon’s new band “Ghost Of A Saber Toothed Tiger”.

The Prince’s Trust performances by McCartney, Harrison, Starr and more now on iTunes to benefit the charity.

Tony Bramwell, former member of Beatles inner circle and author of a Beatle book, is searching for an old guitar of George Harrison’s. (Original story by What Goes On).

Julian and Cynthia Lennon open a new John Lennon exhibit in Liverpool.

New Beatle documentary DVD being released.

New book “McCartney and Me” about a youth who met McCartney in the 60’s.

And most controversial of all, Elijah Wald talks about how the Beatles destroyed Rock n Roll.

Thank you Beatles Examiner and What Goes On for keeping us Beatlefans up to date!

Lucy is ill

Lucy

I know this story is a bit old and has been reported elsewhere a few times, but I thought it was worth noting that the AP just put it out again today and it’s now on the front page of Yahoo.

The inspiration behind “Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds” is ill and Julian has reached out to her.

Funnily enough, she isn’t a fan of the song.
