"Teenage cancer trust announcing a live stream, Siri's Featuring unseen concert from the Cure. Who Pope and McCartney After they're in your live concert. Siri's were shelved because of the obvious. The Siri's is entitled Teenage Cancer Trust. Unseen. Gonna air free on YouTube include sets from Ed Sheeran, Noel Gallagher and them or performers, you would be encouraged to donate. Two teenage cancer trust. We come up with a number as to what was given to farm there still taking donations. They still are okay now who's what Roger Daltry said. Quote. So here we are six months into one of the strangest times in living memory. Everybody has had some sense of what isolation could do to this state of mind. Please donate generously to make sure this vital work continues through these difficult times. That's what Roger Dolphin said. He added. I know things are really tight for everybody right now at the moment. Hire a whole business is out of work so I can donate even the praise that cup of coffee something it'll really help if all of you just putting $10 if you're a smoker. Stop smoking and put that money into something like this Huge amount of money, So every stream I see three o'clock eastern time. First one is Ed Sheeran, right? That's a week from Thursday. The eighth, then muses on the ninth. McCartney's on the 11th Pulp is on the 14th. No Gallagher, the 15th them crooked vultures. October 16, who on the 17th and the cure on the 18th. Second, you're a livestream also going to here with more details going to be announced later. I think this week so big draws here. McCartney the cure. And who do you think those big drives? Absolutely. Yeah, well, news has a muse is a British rock man, But they have a huge following and so does know Gallagher. So I think this is a great offering. Honestly, I've never heard of them. Crooked vultures don't know Paul has been around forever, too. But, yeah, I think this would be cool to see And I like that. It's in the afternoon. You don't have to wait until late at night. All right. So that's that story coming up on 26 after the hour on the D. J B program next, musically, a focus on the doobies business music. Our brothers are going to sue Bill Murray's golf company, Lawyers representing Phil Marie's golf apparel company said a humorous response to the Doobies after the band issued a sort of comic letter that accused Murray of using their listen to music song with ads. No compensation went to that. Last week, the Doobies lawyers publicly Santa Corky legal warning to the William Murray golf company about commercials. It's a fine song. I know you agree, because you keep using it in the ads for your zero Huck's given golf shirts. However, given that you haven't paid to use it, maybe you should change the company name to zero bucks. Give it And let's see who's this is probably the funniest little exchange I've ever seen. This was trending yesterday. It's hilarious. Yeah. So what? I don't know anything about his golf apparel company. What? Bill Murray make golf shirts. Yeah, apparently, yes. So apparently what What the crux of this is, and this is very funny because they kept using. They went back and forth with using a lot, You know lyrics from the Doobies. So essentially, they took a shot at Murray's T shirt, golf shirts. They said We'd almost be okay with it if the shirts weren't so damn ugly, but it is what it is. So they're trying to keep it out of court. But Bill Murray basically said he'll send them all shirts and hopefully they'll become fans of the brand. Yeah, well, there's always a little bit of a laugh when it comes to him. And that's OK. Little sense of humor is very important this time. The way the life's our lives are being led. Money and half the hour on the D. J B program.

"12 years every Friday. That's why still young. Yeah, I reckon twelve years. I did that for mainly Linda but the contract was if I went down there if there was one thing to treat yeah or 10 people to treat you trim was the same price. Okay. So if I get down there one day and there was just one person like a pack up go home and get a full day's pay, you know, and they were tires. You were all shooting other people. In fact that they invite you down anytime that having a party and advice in the neighbors 27 people every time I come down whether the one day that I will never forget. Yeah, and I probably if I look at back all my life experiences I've had in the music industry was a winter on a treated Linda and there was no one else I was looking around. It was no one else. I was thinking to myself. I'm glad here for just 1 hour of the full pay and I was packing the table up and it says, oh Gary Paul's asked when you go to the studio, please just about to go home. Okay, I already have to so I drove over to the studio and I walked into the front door to the control room and sitting in front of me was Paul McCartney and sitting across was Ringo Starr know sitting next to him was George Harrison and then there was me and it was just a four of us man the fair for arrived over off trying to Live Oak down or something. What the vocal? Yes funny, you mentioned that they found a John Lennon vocal called free as a bird. There's lots of documentaries on T about it and was the one that the three remaining members of The Beatles got together and they they recorded all the instruments brilliancy the vocal free as a bird bath and from that day onwards I started treating Ringo and his family. Okay, really? You're lucky went to the shoot. Oh, yeah, and then I was just haven't really George Harrison regularly from that day on so long And then went on for years and years, especially that's the story of a lot things in in music, you know, a lot of things are coincidental sometimes know you do something and then if you take your pride out of it off your ego out of it and just think you're not I'll just do okay. What's the next thing? Let me get on with it leads on to other things. Like I didn't go into into this industry looking to treat people like that. Yeah. I was just working in an industry where there's people who are like that. Yeah, but I wasn't pursuing them. There's a lot of big names you've just said, so what was your first like how did you get into that? But also just recommendations and you end up? Yeah. It was a band called reflex. Okay, it was around the same time as she arrange around because it was around that time and they did a song called The Reflex off and they recorded this their first suspend reflex recorded their first album in Primrose Hill North London, and I used to go into the studio and I was treating that band at the time. That's how it all started. Right then. We're at that point. Where were you cuz you started a New Zealand from Rose Hill. Okay. When did you leave to come over here? You got injured but their 30s good in general there. I came to England for a holiday. All right, you're definitely a cellphone. You're definitely Free Spirit came a holiday for you know, I'm just going to just going to be here on Christmas. Let's I'm going to pull up my roots here. Is it you know, yeah. Well then I'm going street. They're not acupuncture..

"Everything else is the pivot point of view and everything revolves around it everything you do and then there's a frustration, you know of not being able to do what you usually do what you know, you can do what you're capable of them. Are you calling to wish you didn't go to the to beach in in that. Just sit in there and seeing people suffer you remember how it was you gotta do that. It was horrible. I really was dead. Um anyway back to the list. So list you said George George on the tour which has got Sade. Yeah. I heard on the radio today that Coldplay's album off and came out twenty years ago today. I think it was twenty years. What do you like Coldplay? I do like I remember when they first started. Yeah, and I should had Chris wonder how long he said it's very easy to write songs. When going to hear what you see which one what's that supposed to help you with or just have 1% please 1% it before I'd found out so in the loss of work with Gwyneth his wife a nice. Okay. She was a very good source of business. I treated her when she did her first film song. Okay pulled Emma was before sliding doors. This was when she became famous. Yeah. It was it before all that Emma. Okay, and then she introduced me to Brad Pitt nice dog. Then Ben Affleck, oh ex-boyfriends and then Chris Martin so, you know, she's been an excellent source. They're not living in America. They've separated but yeah, you know, I've box of John 6 world tours with Depeche Mode six World talk with Depeche Mode. Yeah, you've gotta cross you've lived like before life. I think I may have lost a few but I treated the first time got to know the manager and the next World Tour that came about they sat me down and they said hey, look the guys are working really hard around this. Oh, look, they got four or five days off there. Why don't we get you to come out for those days nice. So it worked out that probably true 2 and 1/2 weeks that fly me out so much for the shopping experience know every two weeks. It's just the no matter if you know, it's just fantastic and all that. I love Depeche Mode. Yeah. Yeah, it's probably it's probably I don't have faith. But I'm not a fan of many but Depeche Mode is proper and I've got I've got four discs that they've given me over the years. Oh, wow. Okay for my 50th birthday. They've all got together and well if you done six six doors of them, I mean, yes your family. Yeah, they are really truly and Dave guy our normal got all the time in world for him. He's a great frontman one was faster and he's a cross between McCutchen's and in excess and I thought you had James very much liked them. They got a phenomenal songwriter Martin Court. Awesome supported the right side know and he just everything he touches his just probably yeah, so I didn't know if she was with him. I was retained with the Royal Shakespeare company Force twelve or fifteen years. I had a retainer with McCartney Oh no, whoa for probably twelve years. I used to go down the afar off..
High-Elevation Hummingbirds Evolved a Temperature Trick
"A humming birds of your garden, you've no doubt seen it flipped from flower to flower hovering midair as it sips on nectar that activity requires plenty of energy. So hummingbirds need a lot of nectar to feed their hungry metabolism's some of them probably drink two or three times. The Body Mass Index Everyday Andrew McCartney an ornithologist at the University of Pretoria in south. Africa. mckanie and his colleagues have studied hummingbirds extreme. In the Peruvian Andes to survive, they're the tiny birds have developed a few tricks for one their blood cells are unusually efficient at transporting oxygen. It's more difficult to hover in the high altitude thin air, and so the humming birds at the higher elevations much prone to pushing while they feed. So that does seem to be one way in which try and reduce the energy expenditure. Now, Macaque Nana's colleagues have found another energy-saving adaptation. The High Mountain hummingbirds can lower their body temperature by extreme amounts of night going into a state called torpor. tencent appearances, they essentially did they. That's unresponsive. The scientists caught six species of Andy and hummingbirds and monitor their temperatures throughout night and day, and they found that all six species could enter some type torpor. They lower their body temperatures from about one hundred degrees Fahrenheit by day to as low as thirty eight degrees Fahrenheit at night and being essentially conserves energy. The details are in the journal biology letters although some of the birds low body temperatures are on par with those of hibernating mammals. It's important to note that this is not fully fledged hibernation, which is a longer term response. True hibernation has only been documented in one bird so far at least common poor will in the US south. West one of my career goals is to find second harmonizing but in the Andes, he says, it's going to be the first place he looks.

"We actually took his song, which he ended up writing in the style of the Beatles, and we ended up applying our model to it to see whether it sounded more like John or Paul and it turned out that it sounded incredibly much more like Paul McCartney. John Lennon. See could use the model that way to say like. If you have a bunch of songs than you think you write songs that sound like the Beatles. You're not sure whether it's McCartney like our Lennon Lake you can basically apply our model to it, and then it'll tell you which it is. Of course you'd still have to go through the manual effort of seeking within each song. Song whether you're song has a flat second in a whether you have a pair of notes, the six that occurs yet to do good manual work to get to that point. Though maybe there's a python library out there that can help me along the way perhaps thing. Yes, there are APPs out there that do the audio deconstruction, so there are things that probably could help, so why not? You know the song that really led to all of this is the son in my life, which is of disputed authorship, and that's what kind of led us down this path, really long first place. Yeah, I, actually myself that controversy to from the paper but I didn't know historically I don't know if we even call controversy, but what is the situation with in life? It is actually kind of a controversy, so the song and my life is songs recorded leftover, nineteen, sixty, five or saul in the. The year twenty eleven rolling stone designated it as the twenty third best written song of all time. What is known about the Saugus? Said John Lennon wrote the lyrics. There's a controversy of who wrote the music. Casse based on interviews John, Lennon claim that he wrote boost to the music exclusively diverse, and then he got a little bit of help from Paul McCartney in the bridge section, so that was Lennon's recollection and Carney's recollection was that John Lennon had written the lyrics, and then wasn't quite sure. Sure about writing the music and so Paul McCartney basically said to John Lennon. Let me just have ten minutes with this. And I'll come up with some music. And he even remembered civically that he purposely wrote the music to sound like smokey Robinson and the miracles, so they are very conflicting recollections, and so that was part of the inspiration of this particular project to be to answer the question about that song, specifically, because at least a Beatles fans. There is some controversy about you know who wrote. wrote the song it turned out when our models said almost exactly consistent with John Lennon's recollection, which is to say that our model gives something like an eighty percent probability that Lennon wrote the verse, and then it's very uncertain. It's like close to maybe sixty to fifty percent probability that Lennon wrote to bridge section, but with quite a bit of uncertainty about it, and that seems to square much more with linens. Recounting that the Ridge is more collaborative, so it's kind of Nice to see that the. That correspond to that particular song match a particular recounting that was given by Lenin. Interesting well that I don't know of. Paul's going to respond to the worker not but maybe that part would offended. Have you heard from his organization at all? He had some media outlets that took interest in this work did try to contact them, and apparently they're not interested in responding, so we got to the front door and knocked on it and an answer, but I will say that one of the reasons that might explain why is not answering. Is that some of the articles in the popular press that were written about this? Especially, when the explained that are modeled even eighty percent probability prediction to lend writing in my life. Had headlines like data. Cheyenne shows that Paul. McCartney can't remember or the Paul. McCartney lies just like really offensive things, which give him pretty good reason not to respond to us. Yeah, that's unfortunate. The subtleties of the statistics often don't make it to the headlines for some reason well, this has been great I wanted to just wind up by asking. You know where you're headed next on this line of research or we have talked a little about growing the corpus, but in general. What's the future look like for you? Well? The musical as I mentioned, there are a bunch of different projects that are gonNA come. Come out as some of the work that I do a lot. In the area of Games and sports and rating systems and I have some research contracts with some organizations basically do better modeling of strategy within Games and being able to model career trajectories of athletes, and that's something that site near future for me, but as with North Statisticians, we always keep our eyes and ears open and look for interesting projects and see what comes up in latch onto ones that are interesting. Well, thanks again for taking the time to come on and share your work, my pleasure. Thanks for having me on your show..
"mccartney" Discussed on Data Skeptic
"Although there's one criticism I guess it could be that out of box, it doesn't necessarily deal well with two features that are correlated so like if this end this means Paul, but this not something else we explored that. Yes, so there are ways to incorporate interactions of all of these different features, and that's something that we did as part of the model city process. The problem that we were running into is that our training sample consisted of total of seventy. Seventy songs, which is really not very many album is that if you start incorporating interactions which intrude, we fi were very relevant. The problem is that once you start going through this automated process of identifying interaction terms that exactly address the issue that you're describing you very quickly. Start over fitting the data so in our view if we ended up having a much larger corpus of songs to work with which we're hoping, eventually, we'll be able to do what we start spreading out this kind of approach to when the Beatles get back together yeah right. Maybe expanding more in the direction of different groups of the sixties say you know then all of a sudden we have a lot of silence, and then the hope is that we would be able to find interactions, and so this issue of having these correlated features, all of a sudden becomes a relevant issue and incorporated into the model. Yeah, definitely I'm curious to hear how you think your techniques might generalize. Could it be that? Some of the features are a little bit hyperfocused to that era or might we think that like you said? The Sixty S has a lot of common nuance. Nuance to it? What do you anticipate as you broaden your corpus? I mean. Some of the particular results that we have along with all the coefficients for the logistic regression. We've you as being very specific to this Lennon McCartney problems I. Think if we were to apply this approach, distinguish authorship in other settings. Probably what we would end up doing something more. The realm of -scriminate kinds of analyses where each author would have essentially its own signature represented by a set of coefficients so essentially. What would happen is if you apply this to hundreds of different groups, each group would have. have its own like vector of Coefficients, and then if you want expanded further, you could even go in the direction of saying that those coefficients might even be evolving over time their waste actually include what's called us to casting process basically time series on the coefficients themselves that basically say that in a given year maybe group has what particular numerical fingerprint represented by this kind of approach, but then maybe the following year it'll be a slightly different set of numerical values that won't be too different from the ones from the prior year, but at least there's some statistical model that allows. Allows them to evolve over tie, and so that's another aspect that we want to incorporate, but we really can until we actually have a lot of data. That's another aspect. Another aspect that eventually we WANNA to be applying this to again. Using this kind of technology of discriminating type analysis is what we have. These numerical fingerprints for groups that we could start talking about like influence networks. It's commonly understood that John Lennon Nineteen, sixty five at that point was being very heavily influenced by Bob Dylan's music answer. There might be a way to say well if you start analyzing Bob Dylan's. Dylan's Corpus of music, using this kind of approach along with all these other physicians than we could see how far apart the musical fingerprint of Bob Dylan in sixty, five or sixty four baby and John Lennon and sixty five. How far apart they were, and if they're pretty close than we can actually say something like look, they're pretty similar BOB. Dylan was writing music a little before John Lennon at that point, so you can draw some inference about who similarities being at at least some level of influence. We know that John Lennon was listening to Bob. Dylan, so I think the. The paper would be well received in a statistical group or machine, learning, group, or musicologist, maybe even raucous as well. How do you feel about a lawyer? Getting hold of this and trying to make something of it I've heard that question before. So what are the questions that we hear quite a lot at reaction to this work is? Can we use our approach to save for example detect plagiarism in music. The issue here is that just about every form of plagiarism music involves taking sections of a piece of music, and then mostly lifting at inserting it into a new piece of. Of Music, essentially copying passages of music from one song to a new saw, our approach doesn't really get it that local level of music. All of the features that were picking out of songs tend to be more global about the saw whether or not the dominant court occurred in the saw, and so you're never really going to be able to say using our approach that since all the constituent features are these global measures, and you know maybe one song or one musician or another musician have very similar. Sorts of use of these differ features if they're not lining up temporarily it. It would be up pretty hard keys to make I think to say that there's plagiarism involved so I I'm not sure approach lends itself very to the legal realm plagiarisms at definitely a different problem. I guess I would say what if we spun it in a slightly different direction and I as a enormous Beatles fan yet. Someone of questionable morals wanted to purport that I discovered a secret Beatles song that was recorded in hidden away and I to put that fake out there on the Internet has use your tool to produce a fake like that the other thing about cannot do. Talking about all this limitation is that it's not a generative model which is to say that we can use our model, and then just produce a new beetle saw I will say that this work that I've done with Bach and these Corrales is a generative model which is to say that you just basically let the ball run, and you have a new pot. Corral our approach, not gonNA. GonNa be able to produce new songs. What is essentially going to do is it's going to produce a set of features that is a very barebones menu of the features that should appear a song if it is going to sound like the Beatles so in other words like all our bottle will do is if you tell me, the have a song and certain chords, court progressions are. Not In the song then all our model will do is it'll tell you what it thinks. The probability is that the song is a John, Lennon Song or Paul. McCartney saw, and that's pretty much all. It's going to be able to do sure so if I desire to write in the style of Paul submit iterative drafts and try and push my score up I. Imagine that's true. You could take any old song and apply our model to it, and it'll tell you the probability that it sounds like a pulp Arnie saw lord sounds like a John. Lennon Song in fact one of the things that we did as. Exercise is my colleague Jason Number of years ago, wrote a fun song that he and I performed at the launch of the Journal we are article appears as a financier size..

"Mark Glickman and I'm at Harvard University as a senior lecturer in statistics, statistics is a topic that the audience really loves hearing about before we get into the main topic. Can you give us a little bit of background on the areas of stats that you studied or maybe those that interest you the most? Yeah, well. What got me into statistics in the first place? Actually was my interest in the Game Chess I've always been interested in how chess players get rated when they play in tournaments in other. Other words when you go to a tournament, you get a numerical rating. Where if you have two players have ratings, you could actually determine the profitability that player defeats at other, and that was something that I was always interested in these chess rating systems, and I ended up getting really into statistics and the mathematical aspects of these kinds of systems and I developed a couple systems that are in use these days, especially in online gaming called the Licko system. So that's really got me into statistics in. In, the first place and I really have a passion for teaching, so that's a big part of my statistics life, and then much more recently got into the intersection between statistics and music, and this <hes> Beatles authorship attribution project is one of the bits of work also got involved with a student who is really the primary driver of this work on basically how to use statistically generates music that sounds like <unk> Corrales, and so we have a paper. That's GonNa, be coming very shortly in that area so. So, yes, a music's become a much bigger focus in my statistics like these days. Is there anything obviously interest could drive it but I'm curious if there's any computational component to it may be the availability of computers to run big simulations, and that sort of thing has that influenced the ability to ask interesting questions along these lines? Yeah, generally it helps I. mean I tend not to gravitate to problems which can only be solved by having the appropriate hardware to be able to crank through the data? Having access to good computing definitely makes a big difference I think we can take for granted that any listener must be aware of the Beatles and their influence on music. Regardless of what they like should they could a few, but tell us a little bit more background for those that don't know the discography. What were the types of problems you were looking to? To approach this whole project essentially started when I met my main collaborator for this project Jason Brown. When the two of US happened to be at this conference in Prince, Edward Island! We just happened to be talking. After I gave a talk some material. Actually that's related to rating systems for chess players, and we just happened to stumble on our mutual interest. Interest in music, and in the Beatles, and he was telling me that he had gained a little bit of infamy about fifteen years ago, where he used essentially a forty-eight analysis, decomposing the sounds from the starting court of a hard day's night to figure out the actual instrumentation of the cord, because that really been something that was in pretty serious dispute so. So he published a little article audit and got him some attention, and he was telling me since then one of the things that he was particularly interested in was being able to represent Sohn's particularly Beatles songs in particular format in his area of math, which is graph theories, essentially representing music in the form of essentially graphs or networks and he wanted to. Be Able to use it to be able to distinguish authorship of different Beatles songs like maybe there'd be stylistic differences that would be evident in these representations, anyone really making a lot of headway and whole problem of being able to sing wish authorship is something that's much more firmly in the wheelhouse of a statistician, so I told him it sounds like he probably something I would want to be heavily involved in and so we ended up starting this collaboration, and that was kind of started it all, so we tried lots of different sorts of things. Things to take the music and be able to figure out. How can you predict authorship from musical features, and that's essentially what led us down the path to the work that eventually got published so from my perspective, wearing my data scientist hat, I would say you have a fixed data set that is partially labeled. Does that feel like the right framing for you? The main question of interest really and just to take a step back is that there are a handful of songs by the Beatles and again there's nothing about this problem that has to. To be specific to be spent for our interests there handful songs by the Beatles that or of disputed authorship, and so the idea is that you start off with a data set where the labels which is to say the authorship of Lennon McCartney songs is known that's known because the Beatles Bayside interviews in various information that's been gathered over the years is of note authorship, so we have a data set where the labels are no, and then in addition to that we have for all of those songs. We have a whole bunch of features A. A whole bunch of information about various musical aspects of the songs and idea is to form a statistical model that uses those features to predict the labels, and then once you establish that relationship then you apply to the songs of disputed authorship to see the predictions going to be based on that relationship, so for non composers who might be listening? Perhaps they could be intimidated by this problem. Saying music is all about creativity and unpredictability in these sorts of things. Is this truly assault problem from that point of view well? Yes, solvable a loaded word. I mean we certainly made our best attempt by Best Ibiza? After making lots of attempts that were not terribly predictive, we finally stumbled on said features and a statistical approach that seems to do a pretty reasonable job. Making predictions, the simple answer I suppose is yes, it's possible at solvable in the sense that there is information that you can extract. That is predictive of other ships. I could be pretty. Pretty concrete about this one thing that we knew before going into this work, and this is something that has been well known by musicologists studying. Beatles, music, which is that Paul? McCartney songs in particular tend to have melodies that tend to move around a lot like Paul McCartney, had a musical vocal range, fairly wide and part of that tended to be reflected in his moving melody by contrast John Lennon. had a reasonable vocal range tended to write melodies that didn't move around very much like he used a lot of repeated notes, or the vocal movements would stay very close and pitch, and that's characteristic of a lot of John Lennon songs, and so we knew even going into the problem that you know. musicologists have identified differences in the way that each of these songwriters would write music, so we knew that there were features that could be quantified and picked up. Up and used as distinguish irs in these classification models.

How can you predict authorship from musical features, and that's essentially what led us down the path to the work that eventually got published so from my perspective, wearing my data scientist hat, I would say you have a fixed data set that is partially labeled. Does that feel like the right framing for you? The main question of interest really and just to take a step back is that there are a handful of songs by the Beatles and again there's nothing about this problem that has to. To be specific to be spent for our interests there handful songs by the Beatles that or of disputed authorship, and so the idea is that you start off with a data set where the labels which is to say the authorship of Lennon McCartney songs is known that's known because the Beatles Bayside interviews in various information that's been gathered over the years is of note authorship, so we have a data set where the labels are no, and then in addition to that we have for all of those songs. We have a whole bunch of features A. A whole bunch of information about various musical aspects of the songs and idea is to form a statistical model that uses those features to predict the labels, and then once you establish that relationship then you apply to the songs of disputed authorship to see the predictions going to be based on that relationship, so for non composers who might be listening? Perhaps they could be intimidated by this problem. Saying music is all about creativity and unpredictability in these sorts of things. Is this truly assault problem from that point of view well? Yes, solvable a loaded word. I mean we certainly made our best attempt by Best Ibiza? After making lots of attempts that were not terribly predictive, we finally stumbled on said features and a statistical approach that seems to do a pretty reasonable job. Making predictions, the simple answer I suppose is yes, it's possible at solvable in the sense that there is information that you can extract. That is predictive of other ships. I could be pretty. Pretty concrete about this one thing that we knew before going into this work, and this is something that has been well known by musicologists studying. Beatles, music, which is that Paul? McCartney songs in particular tend to have melodies that tend to move around a lot like Paul McCartney, had a musical vocal range, fairly wide and part of that tended to be reflected in his moving melody by contrast John Lennon. had a reasonable vocal range tended to write melodies that didn't move around very much like he used a lot of repeated notes, or the vocal movements would stay very close and pitch, and that's characteristic of a lot of John Lennon songs, and so we knew even going into the problem that you know. musicologists have identified differences in the way that each of these songwriters would write music, so we knew that there were features that could be quantified and picked up. Up and used as distinguish irs in these classification models.
Heavy Metal? Not Us.
"All right. I had to actually check that I hadn't done an episode on this before. Because it's a perfect episode, the kind of thing that I thought I would have done early on So this is episode four. We're going to call this heavy metal, not us. Okay, so the idea here is. We're going to be talking about the concept of bans that aren't particularly heavy metal bands that, for some reason, end up making amazing, amazing heavy metal when they get to it and possibly why that might happen you know the idea to do this I've always thought this concept and debated it with a lot of people, but I was actually on earlier today on Pete Pardo's sea of tranquility, and we were doing a deep cut dive on bluest her cult, and it kind of rambled around to this this topic. And he said this was a great example of that and I was thinking, is it a great example of that is definitely an example of that. But I, but I kind of got to thinking that bluish are cult complicated case, but there are other bands that are even better examples of this so I thought. That will be my next episode. So this is how this came about now I, want to give you a little history on this idea, so you know essentially we're not. We're not here to to debate bands like For example there are bands throughout heavy metal, history, or whatever rock history that don't consider themselves. Heavy metal bands that do a lot of heavy metal. Classic example is when Lemme gets up there alive and says we're motorhead. We play rock and roll right. Little More Lemme later maybe but also black Sabbath talk. We're blues, Band and deep purple you know, says various things you know where we're at Jan, were progressive, rock band. We're jazz, rock band, red jazz band whatever whatever sort of floats their boat, but they usually don't say we're a heavy metal band. Now more in of these examples later on, but to go right back to the beginning. You know it's interesting that this concept you know. Mike, my good friend, Ralph Chapman. We always have these debates over Banger, or we did when we were there in these meetings to put together these shows and stuff where where it's always like the Beatles did everything I well so. Here's an example of this happening so in a way. Helter skelter is an example of kind of doing this I and I interviewed Paul McCartney back for my Queen Book Awhile Ago. And after we were done talking about queen you know I. I asked him a few other things and We were talking about helter skelter, and this is what he told me. I think that heavy metal came out of a desire to rock into rock, big and dirty and loud, and for that you don't have to have rules you talk about what made us do. Helter skelter desire to rock, dirty and loud, and when I listened to it now I think Oh. Gosh I thought it was louder dirtier than that? Because Times have changed, but I think it's just that if you're in a rock and roll band, and your soul is anchored in the Sea of rock and roll and you want to do it, you WanNa participate to your fullest. Fullest and sometimes that means being dirty. Being loud guitar are famous for turning up to eleven, and that's very understandable. Desire I. Mean I still now when I get with my band. We're at a soundcheck just strapping on my electric guitar, kicking it a pedal tearing it up. That's the spirit that kind of goes through rock and roll. You know it's a thrill anyone who has ever owned an electric guitar and put it through. An amp knows that thrill so I think that's where it all came from the desire to just thrash out. That's why we did helter skelter. Now. This doesn't include kind of the back story about Pete Townsend, saying you know where the loudest heaviest band in the world and Paul McCartney's natural. You know competitive nature to to compete with with the WHO and a and this is kind of this narrative. That they were trying to out heavy. The WHO so here's a band who's not a heavy metal band by any stretch of imagination. Just saying right, you want heavy metal. Let's let's give you some heavy metal I seem to recall I might have talked about this in another episode, but but excuse me in that pursuit, because some of these bands that we're gonNA. Talk about here. I have talked about another APSOS, but I'm going to be talking about specific specific to this concept. So, hopefully we'll be a You know a different dynamic when we're talking about these bands now. One other quote before we get to our first one, this one even more infocus a puts together this concept, so this is from Scott. Gorham from thin. Lizzy and I've always loved this quote. and we're GONNA include thin. Lizzy later on, but we'RE NOT GONNA. Do this song in honor of. Basically Scott Gorman thin, lizzy. We're going to include thin lizzy, but they fit perfectly anyway so. We were talking about Angel of death, which is which is a a very heavy metal song on the renegade album from nineteen eighty-one. He says yeah, absolutely bub-bubba calling weather sucks. We never We never ever put ourselves in the medal stakes. We always consider ourselves hard rock band, which to me just entails a little bit more in the songwriting side, rather than just heavy metal guitar riffs going constantly through all the songs, but yeah, we did not want to go down the metal road to us. The metal thing and I don't mean this any. Any disrespect to any of the guys, but it seemed a little corny to us, so we tried to avoid that side of it, and plus we knew that there were a lot of guys out there. That did that kind of John, well, but it was just one of those tracks where we recorded it. Listen back to it and for a time there. It wasn't one of our favorites. But yeah if anybody actually called. US, heavy metal, we would actually jump all over them, and the correction would start there, you know. We considered ourselves in absolute hard rock band, but definitely not a metal band the difference between the two genres. Band, it all depends on the riff drum groove in the guitar riff, whereas with hard rock, it's all about the groove and the lyrics and the melody the song and that's why we went out of her way to explain that we are a heavy metal or are. We are a rock band. And then fill linnet, said That's one of the facets of You know what I was just told Interesting side note by one of the listeners I always said Phil Line it for years and years and years, and then I was corrected, and said Phil Lynnette for years and years and years, and now I've been corrected again with a little bit of proof that it is in fact, fill line at Because he says that Phil used to say when he was correcting people, he would say line it. Why not? So there you

Don't know if anyone tells you the mission statement or the idea for this podcast but I'm just kind of obsessed with like how people got to where they are understanding that story and that journey, and then also, what's the blueprint for other people out there trying to be successful in their own right and dude? You've been doing this for a very very long time, and you've been doing a lot of different things for a very very long. Long Time if you're that I love to kind of like. Go back and find out how it all started like you broke in Hollywood in the late ninety s with all my children, but were you doing stuff before that I was I? Would I wouldn't even say Hollywood in the late nineties, because all my children. While it was television, it was more of a daytime saying. It was actually filmed in Manhattan at the time so I hadn't even moved to Hollywood until I was about. About sixteen or seventeen, but prior to that prior to even all my children, which I think was in ninety nine year right ninety, eight or ninety nine late nineties prior to that I did a lot of cedar in I was theatrically train. A did a lot of rodway on an off Broadway. In fact, my first performance was with my folks in the local community theater of about five hundred seats. in a little town called Irvington new. York, it's a river. Town runs a Hudson. Hudson River just outside of Manhattan by about twenty five minutes, and my folks were both very musically and theatrically inclined. My Mom Lindsay Juilliard Schmitz Ucla my father was a theater major in Rhode Island in a in Manhattan doing feeder work together. They were both singers and songwriters. My Mom's phenomenal dancer. My Dad was a beautiful Irish tenor voice, and it was a family affair when I came along when he got married at me is started raising me in the musical household that they. It would sit around the piano play songs. Teach me how to write a song teach to. At an early age I think that they found it had relatively good hitch in, so it was maybe just sort of like an Irish traits that was in my blood, and they helped me develop it from an early age and I quickly became in love with singing i. had that as something? I could always hold onto and eventually somebody saw me play in a local production at that feeder and. The city in they said Hey. We just saw your son. He really love him. Would you mind bringing down? To the city for some actual Broadway auditions, and that's Kinda was the beginning of all. Is it something that you set out and wanted to do or is? It is the only thing you knew because that's what your parents were doing. It was a bit of both I. Mean My parents truly loved music in really loved theater and so you know how some families are die. Hard sports fans where you're. You're watching sports every single night. There's a new game on which you know. My father also loved the Yankees in the new. York giants, some families encourage their kids to get involved with sports at an early age and Competitive Sports Mike. My family was involved in getting me into theater in as an extracurricular at a very young age, they always put an emphasis on education and making sure I. I was you know I had a proper schooling? But you know I think every kid needs some sort of guidance in a direction at an early age in they definitely gave me the push, but I think once I realized that I had some of the natural ability I was given net was able to sort of develop it as I got older in the more than I saw people returning with Haase's feedback. Feedback, the more it motivated me to be like okay. Wow, maybe I should be doing this great, so it was a little bit of both. Especially in the Broadway world, singing and acting aren't mutually exclusive, but they are separate entities at that young age. Did you like one better than the other like? Were you like I really like seeing more than the acting thing or are like the acting thing but. You know I can make more money in the anything. What was the thought process in one then the other? Well I think that king later and certainly the money thing didn't come at at that age at all. I wasn't eating sinking about money, but I think what was great about what might smart. Is They? My parents when they injuries in the theater I knew an all encompassing thing so I'd never thought that they were mutually exclusive. I was thought Oh. If you're reformer, you have to do both ends so I quickly just latched onto the idea that you need to saying end you need to act in. That was sort of the blueprint that I was getting was sort of my. That was the world I knew so when it keen to addition Rodway Hours I was. Armed and ready for reading my scene and then sitting there singing. A song by Oliver, twist you know so it was. It was interesting. It wasn't until years later that I started realizing. Know Mike. My Love for Pop Music offline music. I served falling low Prince Michael Jackson. TLC Craig David started developing a taste for pop rb. And then all of a sudden I was You know this is great. I wanted to be more pop stuff and I quickly sort of started deviating away from the theater. I think a Lotta kids when they become preteens and teenagers. It's a natural thing for a lot of people earliest for me and. Started just developing other interests but Yeah it's it's. It's a wild. It's a wild story. I do now I look back i..

I had hunter Hayes on the show a couple weeks ago and he was saying that everyone thought that he was the turtle, but in fact no, sir, you are the Turtle Turtle Turtle Turtle on. On the mass singer, did you enjoy your time singing in front of a bunch of people when they didn't know who you were, yes, I did it was. It was a real thrill just getting there every single night. It was fun to watch. People try to figure it out especially in the early stages of the filming of that show because I, you episodes before aired were filmed so before anyone could really be on the Internet, trolling or guessing people were genuinely trying to figure it out live, which was very excited. I think once the first episodes aired die. Hard fans started putting together pretty quickly, just based on my physicality in in search on. That the people in the audience were like starting to scream out my name. People would have to say okay. Keep it yourself you know. Keep your guests to yourself. It was really fun, said we had hunter on Bret Michaels, Paul. Shaffer, a bunch of people who are actually singers on the show that were also part of the mass singer, and then we've had a bunch of people that were actually singers. You're used to getting on stage and you're used to performing in front of a bunch of people. What's more fun? Is it more fun to be kind of like shrouded in mystery performing for people, or is it more awesome to like? Have everyone know? Know who the hell are looking at! It's not that it's awesome that have the know who they're looking at it. It's just often to not be wearing an extra forty pounds of material your back so while some artists I'm sure were loving being disguised. Because maybe they're not professional performers in. It gave them a little bit of a barrier in my case I was dying to rip that thing off because it was just impeding on my ability and being able to sing, clearly dance well. I was I love being on stage for me? It was actually more of a distraction in terms of performing. How much does that thing smell inside? You actually needs to Christ. How will build those things? Are they ventilate? They have like ventilating systems in some of them where fans going and they are breathing so actually not too bad, and they're really good at disinfecting. You know for breezing them, but you know when you're in it for a couple of hours at a time especially when the lights in the studio on all night, it gets really hot to me. I can take the heat. That wasn't really what bothered me. Was the air the oxygen I? Actually felt like because of the mass. They have teeny little breathing holes. Getting a full breath is just not audible in masks, which makes it all the more challenging when you're going to reach for a big note. That was the one thing i. didn't like about the costumes.

Ken could not stop making jokes. Janney was a sniper. McCain's you guessing who the person was always right in coal, just always had a way of relating to every artist.

Let It Roll: The Subversive Side of Classical Music
"Some. Let it roll. Let me host Nate Wilcox. They will have the pleasure of welcoming back Ted Gioia to discuss again his book a subversive history of music. Today we're going to talk about a section of the book focusing on what we probably call classical music European concert tradition and starting off with chapters like musicians behaving badly so it's kind of a different take on classical music ted. Welcome back to the show right. Thanks for having me back. It's a pleasure and I wanted to do this because you know we talked about the book before and and it's it's a paradigm shifting book for me. It's one that really expanded my mind and and clarify things that have been wrestling with and you put it into words brilliantly and it it helped me focus on the whole scope of the show but the section in particular was one. I skipped over last time because I considered outside the breadth of the show which has covered things like the history of rock and roll music and Pop Music in the twentieth century. And I realized reading this book and do more research that the history of popular music as a business really goes back to the renaissance while absolutely on a lot of the behavior patterns of the musicians as well date back to that people often ask me what I learned researching this book and it was many years of research. But one of the quickest summaries. I have is. I found out that the music of might time and the music I grew up with which was jazz. Blues and rock and roll really the musicians back in the glory. Years of classical music weren't all that different and we have a tendency to sanitized that whole record to treat these people with great esteem. But they were just disruptive in many ways more disruptive than later rock musicians so. There's a lot of things that we take for granted in the current day that in fact for justice vibrate noticeable two hundred years ago. Yeah and you talk about this phenomenon that repeats throughout the history of music in the book which is a transition from disruption to respectability from outsiders to insiders and so often musical. Innovations are driven by people on the outside of the system but then there as they succeed as they impact the popular consciousness. They're pulled in to the inside. Sometimes they themselves become insiders other times. They're co opted. You know postmortem talk about that phenomenon. Logan that's right and we're very familiar with this in our own lifetime. We've all seen it when I was growing up The the Beatles and the Rolling Stones Bob Dylan. These dangerous. Figures feared by the establishment. But nowadays Bob Dylan is Nobel. Laureate Mick Jagger Sir Mick Jagger Paul McCartney Sir Paul McCartney and even the most extreme examples I mean take hip hop. Nwea the FBI tried to shut down the record label when they came on board nowadays. That same record has been enshrined in the National Archive of historic recordings of Congress. You have the Smithsonian out there putting together an official Smithsonian Guide to hip hop with fifty hip hop professors. Very idea about professor would have seen the contradiction in terms but they got fifty of them putting together this Canon of hip hop song. So we know about this from our own life and we've seen how these styles has been a good sized what we don't realize the same thing happened hundreds of years ago. The classic example is Bach. You Know Balk is considered now the poster child for respectability classical music is great composer. Who composed for God and country devout booth and run it Cetera et CETERA. You go back and do his own times and you find. That balk grew up with juvenile delinquents. Went to a school famous for gang. Culture was mentored by one of the worst gang members all his early jobs. Disciplinary problems At a young age to spend a month in jail He was called to task for cavorting with a young lady in the organ. Loft had prodigious beer-drinking every possible violation of rules and discipline he exemplified. None of that is is remembered nowadays. He's just the Lutheran composer so this recurring. We could talk about other composers. But there's one point I do WanNa make though I raise these issues in my book. Not because I'm trying to be gossipy or salaciously and it makes for great reading to read all these sexy anecdotes. I have the point. I'm trying to make though is these. Figures could not have created disruptive music they invented if they hadn't been disruptive in their own lifetimes you know almost all the commentary on Bach. We have from back then people complaining about him. You know people complaining about how show he was. He was called the task before the city council had to submit a written document explaining why he was using such new progressive and strange musical techniques. So this thing is conducted disruption in their private life and the disruption. Their music is connected. And that's why well upon it because if you don't understand that you will never understand the evolution of music and going back a little further. You talk about a couple of composers from the Italian renaissance. Who went way beyond Bach in terms of violations of social norms? I'm Talkin about two particular Rotella Mayo Trump Esino and Carlo Jesualdo and bothered these guys. Were involved in love. Triangles that resulted in murders committed by them. Oh this is right. It's interesting if you start with the music of these two individuals trauma Chino and swallow. Its gentle music and they will have songs. These pretty gentle love songs. Mandra goes in front of us but in their private life they were violent angry people and both of them not only did they commit murders but it was obvious to everybody that they were guilty and they were never punished and this is interesting because it shows you that. Starting around the renaissance it became the norm or musicians to go outside the norm. They were allowed indiscretions that other people were not and in fact. I'm convinced in both those instances their fame and reputation was increased by committing murder. I think people felt well. If this guy is such a passionate lover that he he he. He kills somebody in a fit of jealous rage. Who you know. There must be a similar intensity of passion in the song and we laugh at that. But that's the same way. People look at rock bands and the sex pistols. And we've seen this in our lifetime. If the musician out of control we suspect there must be a certain intensity in the music as well so it all came back to that time I mean just one more example I find this fascinating people that want to understand what it was like to be an artist during the Renaissance. The most famous book. They read the autobiography of Benvenuto Cellini. He was a renaissance artist famous as a silversmith sculptor but he was also a musician played the flute and he wrote his life story. And it makes fascinating reading but I went through that book page by page and I just marked off every time. Shalini committed a violent crime and and I think I came up potentially with at least fourteen. Violent crimes committed in his life. And this is not including the the the just the vandalism or the varsity these are actually violent crimes where he murdered somebody or beat them up and none of them was punished for he was. He was actually put in jail couple times. It was only because of arguments with his patrons over payment and artworks and my favorite anecdote from the whole book comes from a conversation when someone would approach the Pope instead of the jubilee. WanNa hire this Guy Shalini. You know he's committed murder and all this and the pope said you don't understand for people like Ben to Chile. Different rules apply that came directly from the mouth of the Pope and the renaissance. And this was a new idea and I would say we still live with this idea to even though even in the midst of the metoo movement and all the scandals. They're still this expectation that great musicians with by their own rules and they violate rules and and For good or bad that's part of the whole Agassi Western music.

Christopher Lochhead on The Biggest Mistake Made in Marketing
"What's at the top of your list when you get up to face the day? Now what's taken up all your time as you get going. Where do you start well? It is surf season. So that's hugely important. You know so. There's always checking of the forecast and And seeing when and where and the tides and so forth. So the you know. That's always very important but I I think beyond that. Yeah My. It feels like both podcasts of of really Blown up in a very good way in the last three to six months or so so. That's super exciting. This episode we just dropped with the real. Da Narcos the two guys responsible. At least on the American side for partnering with the Colombians to Take Down Pablo. Escobar are incredible guys Steve Murphy and Heavier penna though the basis for the show narcos which is now. I think the number two or number three Netflix ever and so getting to meet those guys getting to hang out with them. And getting new record a special two part podcast series with was an absolute life. Thrill and just you know. There's podcasting thing is I I? It sounds Corny. But it's turned into this massive gift in my life. Get to have these incredible experiences that I wouldn't otherwise yeah well and then opens up because I think you said you've got two hours worth of stuff in the can with these guys so you're getting the whole story out of them. You get this fifteen minute puff piece you you get to dig in and the crazy things I mean. Those are the guys that actually did. They're putting their life on the line to make that come together and to get through. Wrap your mind around this. This is back in the late eighties early nineties. Escobar had a three hundred thousand dollar bounty on their heads and the heads of any agent open season on them. They're having to live that every day as part of their daily life Murph was there for three years and was there for six years and there was a point in time Escobar declared war on Columbia twice and almost a third time and there was a point in time where there were as many as thirty to fifty car bombings a day and so every time they opened the car door and it didn't blow up there like a meeting. Was that kind of situation. I mean he they were he was murdering police officers women and children. He blew up a bookstore full of women and children ahead of the school season one year. The numbers that he murdered are nobody knows for sure. But you know fifteen to fifty thousand people. I mean it's he was the world's first narcoterrorists in you know he was one of the most evil guys In history that's crazy and we'll have a link to that so you can get people can get straight to those shows to check those out to more on that but now and so. This is interesting because this plays into what we're talking about when we talk to you to books back talking about category design and how to put a market together. You are ranking on the dialogue podcast category. Which is actually something that you had. That was originally. What got you into the first podcast. So talk about that and where that came from and and how you've worked back into it it's been it's been amazing and here's the CIA. I've now been podcasting for three years. And how long has it been now for John? Remind me it's been like I don't know I think we're heading up on thirteen because two thousand five was the first stuff we address. Marketing over. Coffee didn't start till two thousand seven so that's only thirteen years. Yeah I knew you were over a decade but So that makes you one of the. Og's for sure old man gangster but you know it. So I got started much later than game of course and I think when I started there. Were six six hundred thousand podcasts. Something like that. I can't remember exactly but at the time what people were saying was. Hey look unless you're like a massive celebrity near incredibly well known which of course I am not or you're part of a major media company you know Fox or NPR or or you're an incredibly well funded startup in the podcast page. Wonder you're one of these types of outfits you can't make it so in other words the days of successful independent podcasters or over here and here. We sit three years in. I have two podcasts. That regularly chart the top two hundred overall. Today there are nine hundred thousand podcast and in the business category. We've hit number one here. Here's the hub. I love music and one of my favorite new artists. Is this Gal Lizardo? In the she was nominated for all these grammys and stuff this year and she's just incredibly creative and I think compelling and the songs are fun my wife got me into her and then you had this other young Gal Billy eyelash who won all the awards this year. And she's got all this great music and stuff and so whether you're liz O or Billy. Eyeless your whoever. Here's what they didn't do. They didn't sit there on. And say you know what? Paul McCartney's the greatest songwriter ever. He's sold more records than anybody will ever sell end so fuck it. I'M NOT GONNA be musician. I'm not gonNA write songs. I'm not gonNA perform because I can never compete with the with Paul McCartney. So there's no point he so when I hear this stupidity about Oh you know or nine hundred thousand podcasts. And it's about to go to a million and podcast is over and this and that I'm like well. They're still writing love songs right right. I think we're in the very beginning and I think the success that we've been able to have our team's been able to have. I'm incredibly proud of but I think it's important as it underscores the fact that a a no name with a great group of people can get together. And if you do something that you're committed to and you get your niece downright And we didn't get it right in the beginning. By the way we had to reese but my point is it's still possible. Of course it's still possible. I encourage anybody. Who's interested in podcasting to get into podcasting? If you got something important you want to contribute something of value on contribute or in the very early days and I think the future of podcasting is barely beginning a podcasting. This year might scratch a billion dollars in AD revenue. It's nothing it's mouse nuts. And it's way more compelling and radio and I think a lot of ways it's way more compelling than audio books and in some ways it's way more compelling than video and so I think we're in the very beginning I think there's been incredibly exciting new podcast that have come out. We can talk about if you like. But I think podcasting as a medium for creative people for entrepreneurs for for anybody who really wants to do something cool is wide open and I think for marketers and looking. I'm biased but listen. I'm a three time. Cmo I think I get to say this. I think you're nuts for not sponsoring podcast for not getting into podcasting and for not exploiting this exciting dynamic high growth super cool super creative New Medium.
"mccartney" Discussed on Clear+Vivid with Alan Alda
"And vivid and now back to my conversation with Paul McCartney and how his dreams continue to inspire them later. after the Beatles I did sometimes say wow. That was a great dream. I should write it down and so first thing. Just grab a notebook assuming just going right down thinking this is going to be one page two minutes. No it's like I suddenly remember more and more. Dj's yeah this. I call on the hand and I'm sort of sitting there for half an hour to five quite detailed pages so I still got them in a just. I did that during the period. And it's nice to look back on them because they are quite fantastic stories fantastic. Wow how did I ever think then? That's great yeah no it. I liked dreams. I dream along. I think everyone dreams show. I don't think they'd just remember it. Has You said the more you write down what you remember the more you remember So we probably don't pay much attention to what will help us remember the dream. Yeah I've said to people you know my wife Nancy I said did you. Did you have a dream last night? She said No. Don't think so. And and then the latest show. Wait a minute there was a little something and I think it's just that she doesn't bother trying to remember them and she's a doer. She's on with their day. Unlike me romantic I wanna see the the magic and everything but I think she does dream. you probably everyone dreams is that to me is where in dreams and we were talking about before where things are working themselves out at an unconscious level. I get the impression most of our life is lived unconsciously and would come subconsciousness. Needed Times more things in heaven and earth and Adrift of in Your Philosophy. You know that kind of thing i. It's really true. I have to believe in a form of magic just with yesterday story. Nobody else go to song arrived. The three thousand people recorded you so that I got to look going with that kind of thing and I do believe it's There's much more to this than we know. I'm interested in often science. The cutting edge of science is finding that out. You know that it's much more. Yeah I think Scientists with MRI machines are discovering elements of. Freud's unconscious that he posited without the without the aid of those machines What they're finding out hell. The the unconscious is made up of many parts. I mean the idea that you said so. Many things occurred to you during a performance. Yeah it's it's a miraculous thing your body and your mind is perhaps the most miraculous bit on. It's just like you say what can do what it can remember what it can sink what it can imagine. I mean I. I love to observe some immigration. I just love to just look at things so you won't find me often when my head in a screen you know. I'm not really a great twitter. I just it just an interest me. I'll do it if I have to communicate with someone but normally I'd just rather look out the window. I came through Times Square on the way here and I'm English on a tourist. An looking at these. Wow isn't it like being Times Square with all those screens lights flashing it to me? It's like driving through the inside of a pinball machine. It's quite amazing you know. It's the technology goes on screens. Get bigger I like it. I like it I marvel at it. Marvel mankind can do that. Some of these buildings they say you know New Yorkers. Don't really look up at the buildings anymore. Wow toppled buildings in the clouds. That's great I that that the most expensive apartments are in the cloud. You can't see a damn thing.

"He where as a taylor and an apprentice ladies hairdresser before his artistic leanings led him to join forces with post office engineer john gorman and poet roger macguffin ninety sixty two to form what will become the scaffold. He changed the setting to magadan to avoid accusations of nepotism given his elder brother paul's own considerable success with a set and oh that liverpudlian band originally optionally operating as the liverpool one fat lady all electric show informed that liverpool's hall shortly before it was rechristened as the everyman theatre my former workplace incidentally of course the scaffold unique blend of comedy music and poetry coat with the british public they signed paul phone released a series of albums between nineteen sixty six in nineteen seventy-one touring the u k extensively and scoring several top ten hits including lily the pink and the mcgee append. Thank you very much written during a phone. Call all too paul to thank him for a camera he give my for christmas. If i'm not mistaken i believe that's correct here. Mike and roger mcgaugh also collaborated on the mcgraff mcgeer album and enchancing dancing late sixties curio that combined self penned songs from mike and spoken word material from roger and features guest appearances from such luminaries as paul mccartney who also helped produce juice graham nash dave mason junk mail and a certain jimi hendrix incredible that one was also given the deluxe treatment by cherry red a few years back and it's well worth getting hold off. It's an amazing snapshot of that period. Isn't it yeah it's a really charming. Listen as well in other reissues well with you. Attention is mike's first solo album mm-hmm woman released in one thousand nine hundred ninety two which is just a lovely piece of work. It is and it's my firm belief that the title track is one of the most beautiful haunting songs ever recorded. Honestly i reckon brian wilson would be proud of that melody. Absolutely two years later came the aforementioned majia record at tennessee sees strawberry studios in stockport what's produced by and co written with paul mccartney and boasting wings as its backing band. It's a criminally underrated record and no doubt many of you listening. We'll be as pleased as we are getting not long ago jim moment in the spotlight of course we haven't mentioned that mike was a member of grimm's join this period to alongside the likes of stantione and our foam against neil innes. That's that's right and they made a couple of albums until together. As well amongst many other creative pursuits our guest is also an author and the highly respected photographer and he's published several volumes of of his work including the max mike mccartney family album mike max whites and blacks and remember recollections and photographs of the bills. He took a lot of the earliest photos to the pond as well didn't he. I think he took those s- amazing shots of john paul writing together on acoustic guitars in the falkland road as well didn't they those are just amazing and <hes> it makes surreptitious shots of young paul strang away in their back garden that was lazy used on the cover of chaos and creation in the backyard while we pitch that is <hes> august august is also a long standing cultural ambassador for his hometown of liverpool on earlier. This year received a british empire medal in the queen's. They honest list for services to the community z. Just an all round good egg basically isn't he. He is indeed. Oh and one other thing we should mention is mike's new animated series the weirdos collaboration with edge hill university which brings to life a family of surreal cartoon characters he originally created for the scaffold almost fifty years ago so keep an eye out for that you can hear selection of scaffold mcgaw.

"Welcome back to sound opinions. I'm Greg Kat here with Jim dear goddess, and that's a bit of. Maybe I'm amazed by Paul McCartney this week, Jim, and I are debating the post Beatles releases a McCartney John Lennon, and before the break, we talked about the highs of the respective careers. And now we're going to dig into the lows. You know years ago nineteen ninety seven the latest much-hyped, then at the time Paul McCartney returned to form brilliant solo out med just come out flaming pie. Right. So south by southwest has this panel, right? Let's reassess the solo career of Paul McCartney. So you don't the last minute. They said gonna be boring if it's just a McCartney love fest. Jim would you go on and be the contrarian? Now, I have you know, I have poll his face is on my arm. The cover a revolver was extremely painful tattoo. I am a fan. Okay. But you know, these guys were waxing rhapsodic about the genius of Paul. And then you know, it was my role to to throw the spanner in the works as George Harrison would say and all I would have to do is say ebony and ivory. That girl is mine. Does that really feel? It's time knows No. charity. Because you said. Macartney's low points work. Lower than Lennon's. Will you give me that? Yeah. Yeah. I I would definitely give you that. I, you know, I think if I have choose one. And again, we're not trying to be gratuitously mean here. I don't think it serves either of these geniuses to say, they were infallible. In fact, I think it's the low points, but make the genius that much higher. But there is no defending and people on that panel tried silly love songs..
"mccartney" Discussed on Inside the Studio
"Was somebody where crazy sound on his voice gene gene burns. You know whatever the sounds like y'all rock idols. So inspires your little bit. You know it's interesting. You mention the darker. Sound that Greg brought to that and then you talk about John's experimentation because John was sometimes the one bringing in the darker energy the slight darkness of you know like it's getting better all the time. It couldn't couldn't get much worse. Yeah that's the fan edition that that just adds a different shadow. Yeah that's true. I mean we all brought that you know. This is the thing what happens. You know over time things become legendary. So you'll get. John was the dark one. Pose the Q. One and that's not true because we each had a bit of that or the other so George could be very much the wandered. Bring that in. But you know what I'm talking about it. I was used that example of the song. Getting better I go. It's getting better all the time and jungles code and get much worse so you know. That's a good example of how he would do that but often it could be. George do just as much as John would and I think you know. I would sometimes take John Songs and darken them. I mean come. Together was a very jolly little song when John brought it in and it was like no. We're not GONNA do that. Says Seventeen year old? You suit yeah. Oh we WANNA swamped it out man. So that's the point. In case were Johnson was reported table to go to the pool and we had those kind of influences on each other but the story sticks. The John was the dark on. I was the light on. George was the mystic one you know and some degree that's true but we each had aspects of all those kind of forces and ring or to you know he would come in sort of put some drumming on it to where we like. Whoa I mean I had the song get back. I'm just going to get back. Don't you back and he comes on. That trombley makes that record as we're all four corners of a square the Beatles. It was a very democratic group so we all brew ideas in. Maybe John and I wrote most of the songs with George wrote some of the best songs. You know like Something you know some of those songs he wrote so fantastic and with this idea of homes on the legends that stick and what we might be missing will soon hear the fifty anniversary box set of the white album. Yeah what surprises are in store for us. So the legend of course is that this is where things get difficult. There's a lot of tension during these sessions that are spread over. I think five months or so and sometimes the group is recording as individuals rather than as a group is the legend. They are true or do you remember those sessions differently. You know the thing is because it was towards the end of the Beatles all the forces that were later going to break the Beatles up which is mainly business. To tell you the truth there was a lot of arguing about business. And we didn't like we'd always traditionally just left to someone else but it got a bit dangerous to do and that someone else was different somewhere else actually was about to nick it all. So that is the period after Brian. Epstein's death at the start of Apple Award referring to is Alan. Alan Klein you got dangerous was an idea that he was maybe going to take over and take over all the money and all the stuff that we'd have done announced that made it a difficult period. But you know the great thing was when we got in the studio it all changed because we were just these four guys again and it wasn't to do business is now to do music. And so sometimes we did record separately. I WOULD DO BLACKBIRD. But only because it's a Solo Song. I did yesterday and I said an okay guys. What are you going to do on this? And they also will. We can't it's a solo song you know. It wasn't because we were arguing. Some of the great songs like she's so heavy johns. I mean we all got ride in the. There's no we were peace. When we were playing music in the studio it was always a thrill from the word go when the Beatles who formed to word stop in. We always got in the studio and even if we're arguing that kind of got superseded by the music and you know we argued like families argue. I mean in the early days. It was always John George arguing about who would. Obviously I'm loudest degree. Okay look you know we go Joe. Let's put it at seven. Okay put it seven and then you re be playing into just see George GonNa back his own go nine Unin. John noticed who he'd quietly sneaked autism. Ten you then that would go. Hey you got mike but other than the you know. When we played music it came good..

"Who cares from the new Paul McCartney record Egypt station? Well, who cares? You know, it is one of the questions. The mckearney Seventy-six years older is going to be people who are Beatles fans are going to buy everything McCartney records. Is this record speaking to a new generation of music listeners? That is a good question because I'm not sure I have a great answer for it. I do think that McCartney still has vitality to the way he's able to write songs melodies that is unrivalled and I think he found a good match in Greg Curson who is a classically trained composer who can sort of complement the compositional strengths that McCartney has. If we look too closely McCartney's lyrics, we got into some dire dire straits here because he's about six sentences to, you know, McCartney's he's hit and miss as a lyricist. Let's put it that way. There are some songs on your that I think are quite interesting lyrically to say the least happy with you is a song that he casually rolls out these. Ideas that, oh, by the way, lied to my doctor. I used to drink too. To go. These days. What is you. So he's gotta giving you some inside, you know dope about his personal life. And I think there are some moments on this record that have some genuine strength to them. That song we just played, who cares? I like McCartney in trashy garage rock mode. I think that's a nice nice feel for him. I love the acid folk McCartney of dominoes and confidante there. Some really trippy surrealistic lyrics confidante east talking about butterflies wearing boots. You know, it may wearing. Exactly. Bad. World flies when on the move. Stump around the forest chance. Loves and. Then there's these progressive rock tunes at the end of the record that are dislike. Wow. Do sound like Frankenstein here going to talk about despite repeated warnings? Yeah, despite rhyming planet and Janet. Yeah, and not in the sense of rocky horror picture show. I actually think that's a fairly interesting track. It's interesting yet. No, not.

"They always. So let's let's talk about this event. Brennan told me what was up with the Paul thing was going to happen. It'd be we've been sort of dancing around it for while. But this event seemed like the perfect opportunity and I freaked out. I'm like, okay, I'll do it. And then I just proceeded to freak out and make myself sick because I was sort of like, why wait, what am I gonna? How am I what? What? What has any talked about? This is a beetle that's, you know, he's talked about everything Beatles. He's talked about everything. Paul, you know, he's talked about everything. There's no mocking to find a new way in. I'm not gonna. I'm not gonna get like what I do here in the garage. I'm not like a may making all these excuses to freak myself out. I listened to all the Beatles stuff that I liked. I listened to all the wing stuff that I listened to later McCartney I listened to the new album Egypt station. I do that to myself. Sometimes when I have musical guests that are, you know, have a big discography of who are prolific, but this is this is McCartney man, and you know, it was great to listen to some of that stuff. Some of it for the first time it was mind blowing, but I was still freaking out and finally brand. Sorta talk me down. He's like, you know what? What differences make man? What difference does it make your? You're talking to a Beadle, you know, I mean, this is Paul McCartney. I mean, just go enjoy the conversation with Paul McCartney's in and I'm like, yeah, man. Yeah, that's what I'm gonna. Do. Who cares what gets uncovered or who cares what's been covered or anything else? I'm going to go hang out with Paul McCartney Sir. Paul McCartney but I still little weird. I've still a little way I didn't understand why wasn't more excited. I didn't understand an issue. Why? Why was still a little freaked out? And then like I'll I'll tell you guys this, you know, I don't know that I told Paul in so many words, but, but you know, when you grow up with the Beatles when you are a Beatles nut and really leaned into them a lot when you're a kid and put all that in your head and had a relationship with the Beatles. You have your beetle? Yes, people I'm fifty four years old. So you know, I had my betel and. I did, and, and this was really what was at the core of my exile. And also my my weird reaction was might be the was was John and. And I'm surprised that it stuck so on. There was part of me. That's sort of like Albany interview Paul. But you know, Paul's Paul. I mean, you know, John was my Beatle John man. The raw won the the con. Yeah, the tormented won the the, the one that the war's heart on his sleeve, the intense one. I mean, John was my Beadle. I mean, I was devastated when John was killed. I was, I'd gone before he was killed. I'd gone at some point when I was younger to just look at the Dakota building. I just wanted to run into John and New York City. I just John was my guy, but that was sort of add it. And once I resolved that and was like, dude, dude, it's Paul McCartney. I mean, it's when McCartney's the they're still part of me so I can't. But John was my guide, so we'll shut up and go, go, talk to Paul. We, I mean, come on, it's Paul McCartney, but you have these relationships. You know, but it was. But once I saw Paul people become people very quickly for me, especially after doing this for so long, you know, having them over to my house sitting round with them before and after a talk taking pictures, you know, having conversations after the this was not going to happen with Paul. This is Paul McCartney, Sir, Paul. So I'll I'm at the event in where in some holding area and there's other events going on and we're waiting for Paul. He's running late. And I've got my notes and I kind of put some stuff together 'cause I got about an hour with them. In this event, it's about an hour in live and you wanna you wanna be prepared.
