Music History For 10th May 1960, The Silver Beetles (John Lennon, Paul Mccartney, George Harrison, Stuart Sutcliffe, and Tommy Moore) auditioned for promoter Larry Parnes and singer Billy Fury for a job as Fury's backing group. Parnes was also looking for backing groups for his lesser-known acts, and The Silver Beetles were selected as backing group for singer Johnny Gentle's upcoming tour of Scotland. The group had changed its name from 'The Beatals' to 'The Silver Beetles' after Brian Casser (of Cass and the Cassanovas) remarked that the name 'Beatals' was "ridiculous". He suggested they use the name 'Long John and the Silver Beetles', but John Lennon refused to be referred to as 'Long John'. 1963, The Rolling Stones recorded the Chuck Berry song 'Come On', at Olympic Studios, London. This the bands first release was issued on the 7th June 1963 by Decca Records. 1964, Bob Dylan arrived in Britain for his first major UK tour including a show at London's Royal Festival Hall on the 17th of this month. 1965 ...

Born today in 1943: George Harrison, lead guitarist for The Beatles. Although John Lennon and Paul Mccartney were the band's primary songwriters, most of their albums included at least one Harrison composition, including "While My Guitar Gently Weeps", "Here Comes the Sun" and "Something", which became the Beatles' second-most-covered song. Harrison's earliest musical influences included Big Bill Broonzy, George Formby and Django Reinhardt; Chet Atkins, Chuck Berry and Ry Cooder were significant later influences. By 1965 he had begun to lead the Beatles into folk rock through his interest in the Byrds and Bob Dylan, and towards Indian Classical Music through his use of the sitar on "Norwegian Wood (This Bird Has Flown)". After the band's break-up in 1970, Harrison released the triple album All Things Must Pass, from which two hit singles originated. He also organized the 1971 Concert for Bangladesh with Ravi Shankar, a precursor for later benefit concerts such as Live Aid. Harrison was a music and film pr ...

15th February 1975 : Capitol Records rushes to release John Lennon's Rock And Roll album after a much shabbier version, called Roots, had begun to be marketed on late-night television. Roots was music exec Morris Levy's version of the "oldies" sessions, which Lennon was court-ordered to undertake as payment for a Chuck Berry line John used in the Beatles' "Come Together." (Levy's copyright was judged to have been infringed by the line "Here come old flat-top, he come groovin' up slowly.")

Happy Birthday Chuck Berry "if you would give Rock And Roll another name it should be Chuck Berry" John Lennon
Oh yeah, I almost forgot. It made me very happy seeing John Lennon and his idol, Chuck Berry, play together a bit before his Lennon's death.
TRIVIA: Whose name did John Lennon use as a substitute for "Rock And Roll"? ANSWER:
TOP 10 FAVORITE GUITARISTS Choosing 10 guitarists is like asking an art lover to pick 10 paintings or a chef to pick 10 foods, it's hard. There are so many great guitarists out there. I'm choosing my 10 favorite. They may not be the fastest shredders, but they have stage presence, stamina, can smoke most others on the guitar and have created or rewritten history with their awesomeness. Since there are usually 10 guitarists for every band, counting down only 10 overall is no small feat. Chances are, some of your favorites will be left out. I will be mainly focusing on the older guitarists, as this is my list and I can do whatever I want. Honorable mention: Nancy Wilson, Steve Vai, Ace Frehley, Buckethead, Jeff Beck, Kurt Cobain, John Fruciante, Dave Navarro, Hillel Slovak & James Iha More honorable mentions: Chuck Berry, Keith Richards, Pete Townshed, John Lennon, Joe Sartiani, Steve Vai & Peter Frampton *please ignore anything after the list has been finshed, my phone keeps messing up* 10.)

Rock And Roll was, apparently, dead by the end of the '60s. So much so that legendary performers like John Lennon, Alice Cooper, The Doors, Chuck Berry, and Little Richard needed a special benefit concert to boost its fortunes. Enter "Rock And Roll Revival," a special one-day concert held at...

XMAS STEW -Bowie did a duet with Bing Crosby, now Rod Stewart has an album of Christmas songs some of which Bing might have sang ! Couldn't imagine Bing being the singer for the Faces ! Bob Dylan has already done covers of Xmas songs. *** Jagger had turned down a role in the musical Annie, many years ago. He said he couldn't imagine being in such. Hope he sticks to his guns and won't do Christmas covers, unless they are Chuck Berry's Run Rudolph Run, already covered by Keith Richards, and John Lennon's Happy Xmas (War iIs Over). Wonder if Rockin' Robin's on Stewart album ? Ha ha. Maggie May must be turning in her grave, poor old bird.
Bo Diddley, Jerry Lee Lewis, Chuck Berry, Little Richard are great but John Lennon is greater than all of them.
In Leningrad, I met a man, no longer young, named Kolya Vasyn. He was a genuine dissident in the Brezhnev years, but his dissidence consisted of his worship not of Jefferson or Mill, but of Chuck Berry, Keith Richards, and above all John Lennon. "Lots of things can liberate people," he told me as we listened to a tape of the white album. "For me it was the freedom in John Lennon's voice." Since the early sixties, he and his friends had been collecting pirated tapes of Western Rock And Roll and listening to them with furtive pleasure and a sense of revelation as the intellectuals who read Sakharov in onionskin underground editions in one night-long sitting. He told me that when he first started listening to Rock And Roll, it was impossible to get records and it was before the era when audio cassettes were easy to find. "We had friends who worked in the medical clinics and they would steal used X rays," Kolya said. "Some would have a primitive record-making machine and you would copy the music by cutting gr ...

Was listening to the "My top rated" playlist on random. An interesting juxtaposition: Bruce Springsteen's Thunder Road to Herbert von Karajan's interpretation of Beethoven's 9th symphony, Chuck Berry's You Never Can Tell and the greatest modern song ever recorded, John Lennon's For No-one (there's no point in arguing, saying there's a better one, you're wrong :-). That song expresses feelings most of us will have felt at least once in our lives, usually when we were younger. But the way Lennon said it was pure genius ... And in her eyes you see nothing, no sign of love... When my kids were teenagers we used to play it over and over again in the car as they came to realise that there was music that could touch your soul better than the modern stuff their friends played. Much to the chagrin of Peta who doesn't really like the Beatles. And the middle 8 is Dennis Clift playing a Bach trumpet! What on earth gave Lennon that idea? Or maybe it was George Martin. Who really cares? It's truly superb. Some people ...

John Lennon, Marilyn Manson, Johnny Cash, Eminem, Ted Nugent, Angus Young, and Chuck Berry. I admire the *** out of these people because they say what they want to say when they want to say it when it needs to be said and they have the balls to say it without fear of what people will think. It taught me to believe and stand up for myself, and I have always prided myself on that. I am whatever you say I am, if I wasnt then why would I say I am? i guess that's just the way that I am

Early Beatles here, from March 1962, on the BBC. I've always liked the quaint phrasing--"John Lennon takes the vocal lead." And that he does. It's remarkable how assured they sound here, covering songs by Chuck Berry, Roy Orbison, and the Marvelettes. The singing is so accomplished. Listen to the total poise and confidence in Lennon's voice when he enters at :17. This is a Chuck Berry number we're talking about, and these English white kids out r'n'b one of rock's classic r'n'b men. To give you an idea of how early this is, "Love Me Do" wouldn't come out until October '62; the band's debut, Please Please Me, wouldn't be recorded until February '63. Good stuff. The BBC recordings will play a significant role in this Beatles book I'm looking to do. What a repository. There are some days that, were I given the choice to have only the Beatles BBC recordings exist in the world, or the studio LPs, I'd wave goodbye to the latter. You cannot know the Beatles until you have immersed yourself in the work they did f ...
