Sacred Cows - The Beatles, 'Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band'

Everyone knows how important The Beatles are. Anyone who doesn’t recognise it is just being contrary. With that, everyone knows about the gigantic cultural impact of ‘Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band’.It turned music upside down. Rock musicians looked at it and thought, ‘Wow! There’s life beyond trad rock instruments! We can look beyond the blues as a blueprint!’ It ushered in a new way of thinking for bands – for the first time, they didn’t have to worry about recreating things live. The studio was an adventure playground to be explored. The world was the songwriter’s oyster.

May 30, 2012
Author of the John Lennon Series, Jude Kessler, recently interviewed David Bedford,
author of Liddypool: Birthplace of The Beatles. Now she'd like you to... Meet dave Bedford

David Bedford, author of Liddypool: Birthplace of The Beatles, grew up in The Dingle, by the bottom of Madryn Street where Ringo was born, and attended St. Silas School from 1969, where Ringo had gone to school. He says to know about Ringo, you have to understand The Dingle, because it is nothing like Woolton, or Allerton.

On Music: Beatlemania Week – No. 1

We’re trying something new this week! Instead of a list, we’re going to try breaking a story into episodes. Think HBO mini-series style, only with posts on a blog. This week’s theme is the Beatles. All week, we’ll be looking at some interesting stories and factoids about specific songs. So let’s start episode #1 with “Dear Prudence.”

Trust me on this: The Beatles’ “Let It Be”
The acclaimed author hopes his daughter finds her own musical path but still felt proud when she loved the Beatles

How many more of these stories about dads playing music for their children? Every Father’s Day this story comes around! The kid agreeably listens to the beginning of the Goldberg Variations, and then repairs to his bedroom to play with blocks.
