The Beatles and The (UK) Shadows - Cry for a shadow ? Completely crazy !

I know some of The Beatles ("Cry For A Shadow", instrumental parody penned by Harrison & Lennon-arr. Tony Sheridan, 08/1961) liked the music of The Shadows...Here 's a craz version of Apache played by Chip Hawkes (Tremeloes) and Mick Clarke (Rubettes) live at the Spirit of 66 in Verviers (BE) last 10 December 2009. Enjoy! I'm quite sure Mick did it on the purpose however it was all part of the act;)***As Chip did not announce all the songs, "Get Back" could not be filmed.***(C)Surfrider1962/Stephan Koenig for your pleasure and mine as well ! I've never heard a crazy cover like this one ;). This video is also available on MySpace Music and facebook and on Chip Hawkes' MySpace website.***Each time I see this video I'm doubled up with laughter ;)***Chaque fois que je regarde la vidéo, je suis mort de rire...Ces fausses notes voulues faisaient partie intégrante du show".shadows - apache - ep français - 07-1960Spirit of 66 - 10 décembre 2009 003 http://youtu.be/j6MmnF2Mo54

The Beatles : what had happened on Dec. 6, 1969 ? (6/12/2009)

beatles - nouveau scanWow ! Forty years ago ! Something/Come Together hits UK #4.*** It is the first Beatles' disk not to make either UK #1 or #2 since Love Me Do in Australia in March 1962, and the first from an already issued album.***Something is also the first Beatles' single not penned by Lennon/McCartney, but by Harrison.***Frank Sinatra calls it at the time the greatest love song of the last 50 years.***For the first time a Beatles song is licensed for use on a non-Beatles album: ACROSS THE UNIVERSE features on World Wildlife Fund charity No One's Gonna Change The World.***The falsetto harmonies are performed by teenage Beatles' fans Lizzie Bravo and Gayleen Pease, selected from fans waiting for the group outside Abbey Road studios.*** BEATLES MONTHLY ceases publication after 77 issues as The Beatles rapidly begin to lose their collective identity and refuse to co-operate for promotion.
