I Fab Four hanno segnato indelebilmente la storia della musica. E questo, giovani o meno, lo sappiamo tutti. Quello che ci stupisce ancora è che continuino a venire alla luce elementi che arricchiscono l’immagine della band musicale più studiata e analizzata di tutti i tempi. Eppure accade e, quando succede, si ricomincia a parlarne, citando pezzi di canzoni e aneddoti appena scovati su John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrisone Ringo Starr. Questa stagione è particolarmente prodiga di nuovi e interessanti libri sui Beatles. A cominciare da The Beatles Lyrycs: è davvero bello e contiene una straordinaria collezione di documenti inediti – disegni, annotazioni su pezzi di carta, appunti un tempo considerati carta straccia – riprodotti con le correzioni e le riscritture originali.

Le novità da leggere sulla band di Liverpool sono parecchie: Federico Rampini dedica ai Beatles un libro per spiegare l’economia con i testi delle loro canzoni; Guesdon e Margotin si calano in maniera maniacale nei testi per spiegarne il processo creativo; John McMilian si concentra sulla storica rivalità tra i Beatles e i Rolling Stones per svelare come sia stata artificialmente creata dalle case discografiche. Insomma, intorno a Beatles c’è ancora un mondo da scoprire. E tante canzoni da riascoltare.

A Roma il 29 maggio “In the Fog and in the Rain –
 I Beatles visti attraverso le foto scattate dalle Apple Scruffs”. 

I BEATLES in mostra a Roma

In concomitanza con l’attesissimo “Sgt. Pepper’s Show” che si terrà il prossimo 29 maggio 2015 a Roma, nel foyer del Teatro Olimpico sarà possibile visitare gratuitamente la mostra “In the Fog and in the Rain – I Beatles visti attraverso le foto scattate dalle Apple Scruffs” a cura di “The Official Beatles Fan Club Pepperland”.


Si tratta di una serie di scatti effettuati in prossimità della sede della Apple, l’etichetta discografica fondata dagli stessi Beatles sita in Savile Row a Londra, da Isabelle Berthet. Isabelle era un’Apple Scruffs, vale a dire una di quelle ammiratrici dei Beatles che stazionavano e a volte dormivano all’esterno dell’edificio della Apple Corps e alle porte degli Abbey Road Studios, durante gli ultimi giorni della Beatlemania e anche successivamente, nella speranza di vedere i membri della band e interagire con loro. Gli stessi Beatles dedicarono più di una canzone a queste ragazze che sfidando “la nebbia e la pioggia” cercavano di ottenere un autografo dai loro beniamini o immortalarli in uno scatto.

Le 62 foto proposte nella mostra sono inedite e costituiscono un’importante testimonianza dell’ultimo periodo dei Beatles. Le immagini saranno riprodotte anche nel catalogo della mostra, con una breve biografia di Isabelle Berthet e alcune note descrittive delle Apple Scruffs.

The Beatles: Magical Mystery Tour in Dvd dall’8 ottobre, 2012


Uscirà il prossimo 8 ottobre,
in tutto il mondo, il
Magical Mystery Tour dei Beatles in Dvd!

Beatles, per la festa dei 50 anni
torna “Magical Mystery Tour”

L’ANNIVERSARIO – Realizzato dai Fab Four nel 1967, il film fu stroncato dalla critica inglese ma fu subito chiaro che sarebbe diventato un cult. Oggi riesce in dvd e Blu-ray nella versione restaurata.


Era il 1967 quando la band inventa, scrive e dirige il film di una fantastica giornata al mare in pullman.

Sarà una versione totalmente restaurata -attualmente fuori catalogo e non disponibile- quella che ci aspetta, grazie alla Apple Films. Ecco le versioni diponibili: DVD e Blu-ray e una deluxe edition box 10”x10. Proprio quest’ultima versione include il il dvd e Blu-ray insieme ad un libro di 60 pagine con notizie, informazioni, curiosità. E, se questo non vi basta, potrete stringere tra le mani il doppio EP su vinile da 7” pubblicato negli Uk durante l’uscita della pellicola.


Il film, trasmesso dalla Bbc nel Natale del 1967, venne accolto con un’ondata di critiche dalla stampa inglese, non venne quindi mai trasmesso negli Usa ed ebbe una circolazione molto limitata nelle sale. Il film oggi è considerato un cult movie e verrà proiettato contemporaneamente nelle sale di diversi paesi del mondo, tra i quali Regno Unito, Stati Uniti, Canada, Australia, Giappone (dettagli su www. beatles. com) e Italia, nel circuito Nexo Digital, in collaborazione con Emi Music Italy e in partnership con MYmovies e Radio Capital. L’edizione deluxe includerà sia il DVD che il Blu-ray, un libro di 60 pagine e una replica del doppio EP su vinile pubblicato nel 1967.

Happy Birthday, Paul!


Happy Birthday, Sir Paul McCartney!

We Still Love You, Now You’re 70!

Il 18 giugno 1942 nasceva a
Liverpool James Paul McCartney.

Paul McCartney, 70 volte AUGURI!

70 anni e non mostrarli. A dispetto di tutte le leggende che da circa 35 anni ne annunciano periodicamente la morte, Sir Paul McCartney è vivo e vegeto più che mai e proprio oggi taglia il grande traguardo dei 70 anni.
L’ex Beatles, secondo la rivista Forbes il cantante più ricco del mondo, nonostante i suoi anni non ha perso quell’entusiasmo e quella grinta che hanno contraddistinto per anni la band di Liverpool. A dimostrare il suo costante successo è il calore e l’affetto dei fan che lo seguono tutt’oggi nelle tappe del suo tour mondiale ‘On the run’ nelle cui esibizioni lascia trasparire i ricordi di un’epoca d’oro e il desiderio di mettersi in gioco, ancora.
– Un Tributo a McCartney –

Chiedi chi erano i Beatles, chiedilo a una ragazzina di 15 anni, chi erano mai questi Beatles? Lei ti risponderà: i Beatles non li conosco, neanche il mondo conosco, voi che li avete girati nel mangiadischi e gridati, voi che li avete ascoltati e aspettati, bruciati e poi dimenticati, voi dovete insegnarmi con tutte le cose, non solo a parole”. Già trent’anni fa gli Stadio, gruppo emiliano prodotto da Lucio Dalla e compagni delle avventure musicali di Ron e Vasco Rossi, cantavano la curiosità delle nuove generazioni davanti al mondo, a loro sconosciuto, del quartetto di Liverpool. Oggi anche un trentenne potrebbe fare la stessa domanda. Chi erano i Beatles e chi è oggi quel signore di settant’anni, a cui i giornali dedicano intere paginate, nel giorno del suo compleanno?

Si chiama Paul McCartney e all’inizio degli anni 60 e per tutto quel decennio insieme altri amici rivoluzionò la musica pop mondiale. A essere precisi, i quattro baronetti cambiarono il modo di ascoltare “le canzonette”: forse, inconsapevolmente, ruppero tutti gli schemi della comunicazione, toccando le corde sentimentali di una gioventù che non si riconosceva più negli idoli dei loro padri. Stava già accadendo in America con il fenomeno di Elvis “The Pelvis” Presley, ma in Europa se ne coglieva solo una lontana eco. Paul, John, George e Ringo, con le loro faccine contornate da lunghi e buffi caschetti di capelli, vestiti in giacca e cravatta, avevano intuito che dopo di loro nulla sarebbe stato come prima.

Ma per tutti erano ancora i Beatles
e ancora oggi che compie settant’anni, il leader Paul è celebrato perché era uno di quei quattro. Come se quarant’anni di altrettanti successi fossero passati invano e tutto sia legato a quel decennio incancellabile e insuperabile. Chissà quali pensieri e quali ricordi ci saranno oggi nella mente di Paul: forse l’assassinio del suo “fratello” e rivale John, la morte, dopo un lunga malattia, della sua amata Linda, la musa ispiratrice del primo periodo post Beatles, la scomparsa, ancora per malattia, del riservato George. È rimasta l’amicizia di Ringo, l’unico anello di congiunzione di quella strepitosa esperienza umana e artistica, insieme a Yoko Ono considerata, forse ingiustamente, il pomo della discordia. Ed è rimasta la musica: quella del quartetto, che nessuno osa contestare.


The iconic artist has been entertaining the masses since his teens, when he met a local kid named John Lennon from his native Liverpool, England and joined his group The Quarrymen.

McCartney has established himself as a great solo star too and continues to rock audiences around the world, including a rather royal crowd at Queen Elizabeth II’s Diamond Jubilee concert in London earlier this month.

He remains the most successful composer and recording artist of all time with sales of over 100 million albums and 100 million singles around the world, and the superstar isn’t showing any signs of retiring.

In celebration of his huge success, here are 10 fascinating facts about the man of the hour to say, “Happy Birthday, Macca!”

His hit Beatles song Yesterday is the most covered song in the history of recorded music – more than 2,200 artists have performed their own renditions of the track.

McCartney became the last of the Fab Four to be awarded a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame when he unveiled the honour earlier this year.

Beatles 2012 – 50º Anniversary



BeatlandiA ® 2012: 50 anni con i Beatles!

    A 50 anni dall’uscita del primo disco dei Beatles, il singolo Love Me Do,
    lo scorso 19 Aprile è uscito in sala, ma solo per un giorno, George Harrison: Living in the Material World, l’omaggio di Martin Scorsese a uno degli artisti più complessi ed emblematici della storia della musica.

• Love Me Do – Mp3 Download

Mi piace pensare che tutti i vecchi fans dei Beatles siano cresciuti e si siano sposati e abbiano avuto dei bambini e siano tutti più responsabili, ma abbiano ancora nei loro cuori uno spazio per noi.
Scorsese, grazie a immagini rare o del tutto inedite – e alle testimonianze dei suoi amici più cari e dei familiari tra cui anche Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr, Eric Clapton, Yoko Ono, Tom Petty, Ravi Shankar, Phil Spector, la moglie Olivia (produttrice esecutiva del film) e il figlio Dhani – ricostruisce e omaggia pagina per pagina, canzone per canzone, la vita e l’opera dell’enigmatico ‘terzo Beatle’, non mancando di cogliere l’ironia e la purezza di una delle più carismatiche personalità musicali del XX secolo.
