(Just) Let It Be - English-speaking translation (11/01/2012)

the beatles on iTunes - 16-11-2010.jpgThe most fantastic story of modern music, that of 4 young men from Liverpool, has been told hundreds of times. Future generations will remember no doubt of their names, their songs continue to stand the test of time and the passage of modes: their legend, even though significant that two of the four heroes are still alive and active, take a unimaginable scale. Books, films, compilations, commemorations (Beatles Day in Mons every first Saturday in September and others), concerts of Paul and Ringo, analyzes (some more infamous than others) ... There is no doubt that even in 100 years the name The Beatles will always be known as today. It is a story so compelling that even the most imaginative mind could have invented, so amazing that the most original writers could not write it, and if documented, than in any library or even in some record stores in any country, you will find works of the Fab Four. Any ? Finally, I don't think so : all the countries anti-West ? The adventure lived by John, Paul, George and Ringo was exciting. Full stereo.

(Just) Let It Be : The Beatles : le meilleur groupe que le monde ait connu !

La plus fantastique histoire de la musique moderne, celle des 4 jeunes de Liverpool, a déjà été contée des centaines de fois. Les générations à venir se souviendront sans nul doute de leurs noms; leurs chansons continueront à résister à l'épreuve du temps et au passage des modes : leur légende, considérable alors même que deux des quatre héros sont toujours vivants et en activité, prendra une ampleur inimaginable. Livres, films, compilations, commémorations (Beatles Day à Mons chaque premier samedi de septembre e.a.), concerts de Paul et Ringo, analyses (certaines plus infâmes que d'autres)...Nul doute que même dans plus de 100 ans le nom des Beatles sera toujours aussi connu qu'aujourd'hui. C'est une histoire tellement fascinante, que même l'esprit le plus imaginatif n'aurait pu l'inventer; si étonnante que le plus original des scénaristes n'aurait pu l'écrire; et si documentée, que dans n'importe quelle librairie ou même chez certains disquaires de n'importe quel pays [ça reste à voir : tous les pays anti-Occident ?], on trouvera des œuvres sur les Fab Four. L'aventure que vécurent John, Paul, George et Ringo fut passionnante.beatles - photo - 1-01-2012.jpgbeatles - photo - 2 - 1-01-2012.jpg

Ex-Beatle George Harrison died 10 years ago - tribute

November 1968 : George Harrison (25.02.1943-30.11.2001 [29.11.2001 in Los Angeles, CA]) : becomes the first Beatle to issue material independently of the group with album soundtrack "Wonderwall", which reaches US #49.

March 1969 : Electronic Sound, which makes US #191, consists of Harrison experimenting with new acquisition, a moog synthesizer.

November : having become the second writing force behind Lennon and McCartney within The Beatles, the first single he has penned is released by the group, Something which hits UK #4 and US #1. (it will become a show biz standard with hundreds of cover versions recorded in the coming years.)

December : George plays a number of concerts with Delaney (Bramlett), guitar and vocals & Bonnie Lynn Bramlett, vocals.

May 26, 1970 : he begins recording All Things Must Pass released next December which hits UK #4 and US #1. After The Beatles split, George is the first to secure a chart-topping album. Released to tie in with the first non-Beatle Christmas since 1962, it achieves worldwide sales of 3 million copies. The triple album box set is a showcase of his talent and will never be equalled by future releases. Co-produced by Phil Spector, Harrison is backed by an all-star band, including Ringo Starr, Ginger Baker, Billy Preston, Badfinger and debut of Derek & The Dominoes, featuring Eric "Slowhand" Clapton as well as Bob Dylan...R.I.P., Mr. Harrison...

What happened to some Beatles members on 31.12.1966 & 31.12.1970 ?

the beatles - just seventeen - S. African single.jpg

1966 : George Harrison is refused admission to Annabel's nightclub in London for not wearing a tie, so he, and his party, including wife Patti, Brian Epstein and Eric Clapton see in the New Year at Joe Lyon's Corner House in Coventry Street in the West End of London.


1970 : Paul McCartney files suit against the rest of the group to dissolve THE BEATLES & Co. partnership and seeks the appointment of a receiver to handle the group's affairs. He also ends links with Allen Klein who now handles the affairs of the other 3. Happy New Year for all their fans.

It's my turn to wish you all a very good New Year's Eve dinner and at the same time a very very

HAPPY NEW YEAR ! God bless...

Carpe diem quam minimum credula postero.

john lennon - 1971.jpglennon - instant karma - 02-1970.jpgThirty years ago John was cold-blooded murdered / Il y a 30 ans, John fut assassiné de sang-froid. Tribute...

Instant Karma ! : by Lennon/Ono (With the Plastic Ono Band) and George Harrison on guitar released in February 1970 : recorded in a day and produced by Phil Spector, hits UK #5 and US #3. George plays guitar and Allen Klein and assorted club-goers from London's Hatchetts club provide chorus.

Imagine : by John Lennon/Plastic Ono Band (October 1971) :

-album : Imagine, commercially his most successful LP record, features a melodic pop sound and is acclaimed as his best solo work. The album, containing 2 thinly-veiled attacks on Paul McCartney in Crippled Inside and How Do You Sleep ?, tops both UK and US charts.

-single (released in 10/1971) : peace-themed Imagine hits US #3; Lennon resists its UK release. Mais heureusement pas en Belgique ni en France et aussi dans la plupart des autres pays du Globe.

johnny gentlebeatles-poster film let it beMay 20, 1960 : Johnny & The Moondogs including Lennon, McCartney, Harrison and Stutcliffe having failed an audition for Larry Parnes to Billy Fury's backing band, begin a 7-date tour of Scotland at Alloa Town Hall, as THE SILVER BEETLES (after a brief spell as THE BEATALS) backing Johnny Gentle, another singer from the Parnes talent stable (!). Tommy Moore has been added to the line-up on drums. For the tour, McCartney uses the pseudonym Paul Ramon, Stutcliffe calls himself Stuart da Staël and Harrison adopts the forname Carl.***May 20, 1970 : movie "Let It Be" opens simultaneously at the London Pavilion and Liverpool Gaumont without any of the group attending. It documents the making of the album and outlines the discontent amongst The Beatles during its recording. True stereo.

Historique de (We're Gonna) Rock Around The Clock (8/05/2010)

bill haley - liège - 14-05-1974 (1)bill haley - liège - 14-05-1974 (2)La chanson Rock Around The Clock fut écrite et composée en novembre 1952 (soit 18 mois avant l'enregistrement par Bill Haley) par Jimmy DeKnight (alias James E. Myers) en collaboration avec un compositeur "freelance", Max C. Freedman. Il est probable, comme cela se faisait couramment à l'époque qu'un éditeur ait proposé Rock Around The Clock à Dave Miller, patron d’Essex Records à Chester (Pennsylvannie) ou à quelqu'un de son entourage mais personne n'en a jamais voulu. C’est finalement Sonny Dae (alias Paschal Vennitti) and His Knights à Chester qui enregistrent le morceau en octobre 1953. (We're Gonna) Rock Around The Clock sort sur ARCADE (45-AR-123), un tout petit label appartenant à Jack Howard en mars 1954. (*) RATC se vend à au moins mille copies dans la vallée du Delaware mais n‘est pas distribué au niveau national (coast to coast) par manque d'intérêt d'une Major. Malgré son insistance, "on" lui dénie le droit de l'enregistrer (même pas en démo). Enfin libéré de son contrat avec Essex Records, "Bill Haley and His Comets" pourront enregistrer RATC le 12 avril 1954 au Pythian Temple de New York City. Bill Haley était tellement en retard (arrivant de l'état voisin du New Jersey) pour l'enregistrement qu'il dût s'y reprendre à deux fois dont coût 3 heures de studio (mince ! au prix que coûtait une seule heure...). Le disque est distribué par Decca ( le 78 tours 29124 ) et par DECCA (le single 9-29124) "coast to coast" simultanément avec un autre pays situé en Europe de l'Ouest : la Belgique !!! Label DECCA 9.60.961 en face B de Pinball Boogie de Red Foley (10 mai 1954). Mais revenons environ sept mois auparavant: Bill Haley, parfait musicien et multi-instrumentiste (guitares, slap bass) dispose d’un flair sans pareil et il croit en cette chanson. En septembre 53, il l’ajoute à son répertoire et la joue pour la première fois en public sous son nom de l'époque "Bill Haley With Haley's Comets" dans la station balnéaire de Wildwood-by-the-Sea à l'hôtel HOFBRAU dans le sud du New Jersey (**). Quelques mois plus tard, (We're Gonna) Rock Around The Clock ne tarde pas à se classer No 23 dans le Pop chart du Billboard le 29 mai 1954 (***)...La suite fait partie de l'Histoire de la "Popular Music"... Sources : (*) Billboard revue, 20 mars 1954 (**) Jersey City : Da Capo Press, 1987 (***) The Billboard Book of Top 40 Hits. New York: Billboard Publications, 1984.

The Clash's bass player: Paul SimOnon or SimEnon ??? 29/09/2009

paul simenon - the clashThere's a big problem about Paul's real house hold name. I know that 'cause I've read a Belgian interview by punk/new wave specialists about or more than 25 years ago. If my memory don't fail, it was written in an independent journal called "En Attendant" or "MORE".***Google images shows Paul Simonon and Paul Simenon. Anyway, I'm quite sure it is SIMENON.***For instance this link: http://punk77.co.uk***or this one : http://www.urbanimage.tv/browse.htm?loc1=punk&loc2=clash%20posse&loc3=paul%20simenon& ***I'm awaiting without any comments...

Pierre Rapsat et les Beatles : LP Je Suis Moi (24/02/2009)

Pierre Raepsaet est né à Ixelles le 28/05/1948 et est parti pour un long voyage le 21/04/2002 à Verviers. Bio succinte: Pierre a fait partie d'un groupe verviétois "Les Tricheurs" devenus ensuite "Les Ducs" (avec e.a. Francis Geron à la basse et futur patron du fameux club musical "Spirit of 66" à Verviers. En 1970, il forme le groupe Laurelie dans lequel il est  bassiste. Ensuite il rejoint le groupe Jenghiz Khan (1971-1972) où il devient le principal vocaliste et joue toujours de la guitare basse. L'année 1973 verra ses débuts en solo (dont les très rares LP's New York chantés en français et en anglais). Sa connexion avec les Beatles est la chanson "Nous, les Beatles" parue sur l'album "Je Suis Moi" sorti en 1977 chez RCA Victor où il a été entraîné par Yves Simon. Je lui ai rendu hommage sur facebook avec un album photo intitulé "Pierre Rapsat et ses connexions".rapsat - lp je suis moi - 1977beatles - 07-1967 - all you need is love Pierre Raepsaet n'a jamais été bassiste ni dans les Rockets ni dans les Tenderfoot Kids !
