Abbey Road: why it's in my blood

Abbey Road: why it's in my blood

These days there is only one album by The Beatles that I can always listen to, and that's Abbey Road. That should come as no surprise to regular readers of Blog on the Tracks; I've mentioned it often. You see, I learned to play the drums to this album. I mean, all right, sure, I had a few lessons at school (intermediate). But my mum suggested that I just play along with records. So when I got my first drum kit it was positioned in the spare room at the end of the house and I went at it. Attempting Come Together and Something and Maxwell's Silver Hammer and Oh! Darling and Octopus's Garden and I Want You (She's So Heavy).It took me a while longer to get my head around side two - but I started out by just playing along to the opening cut, Here Comes the Sun; for the chance to use my brushes.

Life is what happens when your busy making other plans. John Lennon
