STILL MAKING HISTORY!!!




Paul McCartney's "Out There" tour finished its latest run with a spectacular yet sentimental show at Candlestick Park. Paul included "Long Tall Sally" in the setlist, as it was the final song The Beatles ever played before a paying audience at that same ballpark 48 years ago. The tour takes a rest now and picks up again September 28 with a concert at Petco Park in San Diego. Check out the new video for the song "Early Days" in the videos section below.


Two of Wings' most popular albums are finally being reissued with bonus tracks and new packaging. "Venus and Mars and "Wings At the Speed of Sound" will be available in multiple formats starting September 30. Rumors about the releases started early this year but didn't pan out until now. Among the anticipated tracks, a "John Bonham mix" of "Beware My Love." Click on the pic for official info from Paul's website.


For the first time, someone is making a claim about who performs the "Train Music" used in a sequence of "A Hard Day's Night." One of the session musicians hired by George Martin to do the incidental music says it's him playing drums, and most likely Jimmy Page and Big Jim Sullivan playing guitars. Sullivan was also known as "Lord Sitar" on a novelty record in the late 60's. Click the pic for the article about how the film was restored.
