Happy birthday to "Beatles For Sale". I've always liked the album, especially this song :

The beatles. "I don't want to spoil the party"


"That was a very personal one of mine. In the early days, I wrote less material than Paul because he was more competent on guitar than I. He taught me quite a lot of guitar, really." - John Lennon

December 5th

1960, Paul McCartney and Pete Best were arrested for pinning a condom to a brick wall and then igniting it. The two were told to leave Germany and The Beatles returned home, discouraged.

Some accounts give November 29th as the date for this but what’s most important is why in the heck did they do it?

1961: The Beatles performance at noontime in the Cavern Club in Liverpool.

1965: The Beatles played their last ever show in their hometown of Liverpool when they appeared at The Liverpool Empire during the group's final UK tour. Only 5,100 tickets were available, but there were 40,000 applications for tickets. The group also had the UK No.1 single with 'We Can Work It Out / Day Tripper.'

1967: Party celebrating the opening of Apple Boutique.

2006: Beatles lyrics handwritten by Sir Paul McCartney to an early version of Maxwell's Silver Hammer sold for $192,000 (£97,000) at an auction in New York. A guitar owned by Jimi Hendrix fetched $168,000 (£85,000), a notebook containing lyrics written by Bob Marley, sold for $72,000 (£36,445) and a poem penned by Doors frontman Jim Morrison made $49,000 (£25,500) at the Christie's sale.

Me too. Some people don't I guess but it has "I'll Follow the Sun" on it so therefore it's okay by me.  ;D
