I would come out to see a band playing that set list! Excellent taste, and stuff one doesn't often hear live....

These are some of the songs were doing.

We have a really nice Nord keyboard.  A keyboard always makes a band more versatile and some of the songs really sound so much better when a keyboard is available as opposed to leaving out the keyboard part.

Genius is a word that is often thrown around with little regard for a true meaning.

The definition is this: A person who displays exceptional intellectual ability, creative productivity, universality in genres or originality, typically to a degree that is associated with the achievement of new advances in a domain of knowledge.

Having said that, scientists are still divided about what that means, really. Whether or not George Martin was a genius, he was definitely all the things you said. The word that pops most readily to my mind is 'Empathetic'.

Very thought-provoking, sir!

...is often called a genius.


I have never thought that.  I think he...


was a perfect fit.
was very, very creative.
was accepting of four young yahoos from Liverpool.
was willing to go along with their alternative ways of doing things.
was very insightful on a few things in their very early days.
had some truly great ideas to add to some of their songs.
let his team give their input to the recording process.


Im not saying he wasnt a genius; maybe he was.  I just dont think he was.

The only issue I see is that it probably has to be sanctioned by Apple.  I, personally, wish that weren't so.  I'd like to see a film from someone without any constraints upon their work.  I cant blame them though.  If someone was using footage of me Id want to see it...and if I owned it Id make sure I agreed with everything in it. 


But Im still super happy that something is being done with this.

Good news. I'm glad they are doing something with the Let it Be footage. Nice to have something else Beatles related to look forward to.

Monkees were great.  I have most of their albums and listen to them fairly often. 


Great tv show.


I think their music was maligned when it really shouldnt have been.  The Supremes approached music much like the Monkees did.
Except...the Monkees eventually made a really good album of their own stuff.

No matter one's feelings about the "pre-fab four", Peter Tork was a fine musician and a funny dude. Sad news indeed....

As far as I know, Macca does not play this one.....and he ought to.
