It was fifty years ago today

(Actually, 9 February will be “that” date, but I wanted to be among the first to title a post with what will likely become the most overused phrase of 2014. Heh.) Fifty years ago come February, the world changed.

I just bought my twenty-somethingth book on the Beatles. Do I have a problem? No, I can quit anytime I want. I mean it.

Over coffee this morning, I’ve walked down Memory Lane and watched some great videos on the Fabs. Here’s one my fellow crusties will like, with the Lads doing a Buddy Holly tune underneath some new animation. Put it on full-screen view.

All right, time to get bizzy. Much music to write today. My life is rhythm section parts. Have I mentioned that I love Christmas, but it’s the lead-up to it that makes me crazy? Shooting for the 18th. If we make it to that morning, it’s all good from there.

Until January, of course.


Happy weekend, fiends!

      And isn’t it funny how *so* many people’s favorite songs are that one (gorgeous) and “Something” — both written and performed by George.

      Awesome! I always/never have a definite favorite Fabs song. Rather, it seems I have a different one every day. Today’s is this.
