Fab Four enthusiasts will be delighted this month to have been granted access to four previously unreleased mixes from the band’s 1969 and 1970 Get Back sessions which ultimately culminated in 1970’s Let It Be. The batch of songs, released collectively as a single titled Get Back (Take 8), includes alternate versions of “Get Back,” “One After 909,” “Across The Universe,” and George Harrison’s “I Me Mine.”
Whole Lotta Celebratin’ Goin On: 85 Years Of The Killer Adds Ringo Starr, Keith Richards, John Fogerty, Andy Grammer, Peyton Manning
Announced last week, a star-studded event will be held to celebrate Jerry Lee Lewis’ 85th Birthday featuring some of the biggest names in music, movies, sports, television and politics. The virtual livestream, hosted by actor John Stamos, has added Ringo Starr, Keith Richards, John Fogerty, Andy Grammer, Kris Kristofferson, Peyton Manning and more for performances and well wishes for the “Last Man Standing” and founding father of Rock n’ Roll. There will be special appearances from Jerry Lee Lewis himself and he will interact with fans via the live chat.
The often-overused term living legend is bantered about in the entertainment industry, but if anyone in the pop music world deserves the moniker, it would be Ringo Starr. The former Beatle brought the latest incarnation of his All-Starr band to the Greek Theatre in Los Angeles for the final date of his 2019 tour. Fans lined up early for the sold-out show, some with their young children in tow.
