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..

‘Beatles: Rock Band’ website nominated for Webby internet award

Posted in Uncategorized on April 19, 2010 by ificandream

The title basically says it all! The website for Beatles: Rock Band has been nominated for a Webby Award. Is it wrong that I thought those awards were made up for iCarly? The site deserves the award. It did a very good job of building up the suspense to Rock Band’s release. Check out Steve’s article below for more.

Cruise Report DAY 2

Posted in Uncategorized on March 29, 2010 by Bertone

Woke up early this morning for Nancy Andrews and May Pang’s “Question and Answer” session. Great, except I didn’t kn0w we were dealing with a time change! I was at the theatre an hour before anyone!
The session went well. I’ll have video and audio (I took both…separately) up later. I did a question wrong during the trivia section, but it’s all good. The boat was very rocky and Nancy kept cracking me up with the physical comedy she did.

Paul Saltzman gave a very good lecture/discussion on the Beatles in India. He showed us some slides of the pictures he took during his time there. Then it was onto the vendor show. I could have easily spent 10,000 dollars there, luckily nothing left my wallet. I wound up helping May at her station since her two helpers were in their room seasick.

I finally got a chance to chat with Jorie Gracen at dinner. We are both very big Wings fans and discussed the controversy over Wings being snubbed by the “Rock and Roll Hall of Fame”.

We ended the night with a showing of “A Hard Day’s Night”. I sat with Woody and we relived the magic of that great piece of cinema history.

I’ll write more later, and I know I’ve let alot out, but it’s time to rest and relax!
