36 years ago this month, the Beatles performed their last 'live' show upon the rooftop of their APPLE Corp. headquarters building, in London. They performed rough cuts of "Get Back", Don't Let Me Down", I've Got A Feeling", One After 909" and then an encore performance of "Get Back, even as the police arrived to pull the plug on them.
36 years! Gawd, do I feel old.

Former Beatle bass player Paul McCartney, 64, wowed them yesterday at the Superbowl Half-time show. With a tight set that opened with the rousing "Drive My Car", Paul went on to churn out "Get Back", followed shortly thereafter by a pyrotechnics display version of the James Bond song, "Live And Let Die". By the time McCartney broke into the closing number, "Hey Jude", the 21st century version of candles (pinlight flashlights) lit up the surrounding audience and the stadium.

the Beatles,oh boy what the younger generations missed in their hey day!i first got hooked on the Beatles during the Ed Sullivan show in 1964!,when i was in the first grade!my older sister was a senior in high school at the time and was going crazy while watching them on the show and the rest is history!
their music was beautiful and still is!Lennon/McCartney were prolific song writers.the harmonies were outstanding!
Twenty-five years ago tonight, John Lennon and Yoko Ono were riding home home from a recording session at the Record Plant, in New York City. When Lennon stepped out of his vehicle, he made it just as far as the foyer of the Dakota Aparment building. A coward, whose name does not deserve to be repeated here, stepped out of the dark and put four bullets into the ex-Beatle. The time was 10:50 PM. Lennon was pronounced dead at the St Lukes-Roosevelt Hospital a short time after his arrival.

For anyone awake at 9am on Sunday mornings, tune into Q104.3 (live internet stream availible for those out of the NY/NJ/CT area) they have a great show called "Breakfast with the Beatles". Its an hour block of uninterrupted beatles songs. The host, Ken Dashow, usually has a great story to go with each song and will read listener emails about why they love the beatles. It really is a great hour show and worth a listen!
