I was listening to Harrison’ “33 1/3″ the other day. I thought this album is when I stopped thinking of him as a Beatle. “Dark Horse” with Phil Spector producing could have been “All Things Must Past Part 2.” “Extra “Texture” still had some Beatles elements in it. on “33 1/3″ it’s all Harrison, no Beatles.
So the rest of The Beatles.
Wings always reminded me of a Beatles wannabe band. Good music there. “Tug Of War” with Martin producing had Beatle music. “Pipes Of Peace” even though it had Martin producing, didn’t think of The Beatles. McCartney did come back to Beatle music on “Chaos and Creation In The Back Yard” and “Memory Almost Full,” then left it on “New.”
Once Ringo hooked up with Mark Hudson on “Vertical Man,” I stopped thinking about The Beatles. I’m glad he’s not with Hudson, I couldn’t stand the production.
John Lennon I always thought of as a Beatle cause he didn’t put out that many solo albums. Even though he was the one Beatle that wanted to shed the Beatle image.
Last Sunday night I’m coming home from a wrestling show at the Nassau Coliseum. It was snowing heavy that day. We drove there in heavy snow. On the way back the Southern State Parkway was plowed. I’m thinking, this is great, we’ll be home in no time. We get up to Islip Ave. exit and the parkway isn’t plowed. The strange thing is that it went from being plowed to not being plowed. It was a straight line across from the plowed side to the not plowed side. It was like the plows all stopped at the exact time and a helicopter lowered lines and picked up the plows and took them away. I didn’t see no turnoffs, it just stopped.
Have your own TV show.
Play their instruments as good as The Monkees.
Have a theme song as cool as The Monkess.
Write songs as good as Michel Nesmith.
My take on the “Sgt. Pepper” album cover with some of my favorites.
