I’m cheating on this one. The podcast actually starts with John and Yoko’s arrival late on January 13. The conversation is intense. Jan. 14 begins with one of Paul’s piano sessions, where he even plays a verse of “Woman,” which he wrote for Peter & Gordon.
The Beatles don’t accomplish much on January 14 and even their conversations are not that interesting. It gives me an opportunity to share my thoughts on whether or not Yoko broke up the Beatles. Check out Allyn Gibson’s comment on yesterday’s post for another interesting view on this subject. Yes, I know it’s weird that someone could comment on a something before it’s posted.
That’s Paul on guitar on John’s song “Madman” by the way.
This wraps up the first series of this podcast. It will return on January 21 when the Beatles resume their sessions in their new basement studio. I will find something to write about between now and then, so jump back here sometime. Otherwise, I’ll see you next week.
Rock Dad out.
