It's nice to enjoy the anticipation of expecting something, though.

I listened to Headquarters in the car the other day, but didn't encounter much spectacular stuff. It's probably me.

Sean's band was the opening act for a portion of Beck's recent tour.

Here's a run-down of who's going to be on Conan and when:

Monday, Sept. 22nd: Beck
Tuesday Sept. 23rd: Paul Simon
Wednesday,Sept. 24th: Dhani Harrison and Friends (We'll have to wait and see who the friends are.)
Thursday, Sept. 25th: Norah Jones (Ravi Shankar's daughter)

I don't know anything about Beck but I'm looking forward to the other three!

Beck's a bit of a darling of the imdie set. He's actually not bad. Certainly influenced by the Beatles.

Footnote: One of the things the Beeb wiped were The Beatles only live performances on 'Top Of The Pops' - 'Paperback Writer' and 'Rain' from a 1966 episode. Oh dear!


I was just discussing this very topic with another friend from England not too long ago. It was frustrating to me when I discovered that those performances were gone but it happened over on this side of the pond too. That's why the infamous Lennon and McCartney appearance on the Tonight Show in May of '68 exists only for our ears. I would like to see the looks on their faces throughout that mess but I guess this picture says a lot:

The funny thing is that although we salivate over the idea of unreleased Beatles material appearing, the fact that there is still some scope for future releases fifty years later still makes it interesting.

If the industry had put out definitive box sets of each Beatles LP one year after release, (1) Beatlemania would never have got off the ground and, (2) we wouldn't be as interested today.

Many years ago, unbeknown to the great British public, the BBC had an alarming policy of wiping episodes of old TV series.
'Dad's Army', 'Hancock', Peter Cook & Dudley Moore, 'The Likely Lads', 'Dr. Who' all suffered from this short-sighted policy. However, the irony is that those missing episodes have given many of those programmes even more of a mystique and created even more of an interest in them than there might otherwise have been.

If The Beatles were prophets I wouldn't like them.

John Lennon.....50s rock 'n' roller, toilet seat on head, drunk, running up and down the main street in Hamburg doing a Nazi salute (I don't know if this really happened, but I like to think it did!) = interesting.

John Lennon.....prophet = as dull a perspective on the group and the era as it would be possible to have.
