Ben Rector Gets in the Christmas (and Thanksgiving) Spirit
"Your christmas album of ben. Rector christmas is so brilliant so much. I'm glad you like it really like it. We were listening to it this morning. The office i've been listening to it. While i'm baking at my house through an thanksgiving song that hit like i mean people went nuts for that thing. I was actually really surprised. So i was gonna my manager. Greg was like hey like you should really try to write some original christmas songs and i was like well. I think what people don't understand about christmas music is it's they're used to the song so you don't really remember how good they are. It's really like the greatest hits of the last hundred years of music truly. You'd like i just write another christmas song. It's like the last three songs that were added to the holiday music. Canon gary and then wham and paul mccartney and paul mccartney went on like honestly like various weirdly similar since christmas and so i was just like been a million people. Try to write christmas songs. And even once some that are pretty good and it's just like i it's just tough to exist in that world because the classes are so good and i was like maybe right thanksgiving song so it came out like better than i thought it would and i thought it would just be like. Oh people will maybe like this song. That's great and then as it kinda started to happen like radio. A lot of radio stations played it and like it was like kind of rolling. And i was like what if this could actually become like the thanksgiving song i people reacted to it. More strongly than i thought they would. I thought it'd be a song and everybody was like this song. I was like that's awesome right. I mean apple picked it when it apple that made it. They're like song of the day is amazon amazon. I mean that is no joke. Then it was it was. It was a on the radio. Top ten song crazy. What a so what happens now is not you. Will you sing that when you are on the road next year i thought about that i was like i think in the month of november. I probably could really we did like how after thanksgiving because it went well enough that i think all of us were like wait. This could actually like if we pushed it for a couple more years. It's possible that it would happen every year because a lot of radio people were like we had to make this tradition. And i was like from your lips to god's ears like mass idea. You've had what i'd new can. I'm like a body going to be on my pinky but yes we had a caller just like what could we do to try to make this happen again next year. So i would imagine that. I will play it if i do shows november. That's a good month to do it. But i don't know if i could do it before then but i would love it if it became something any honestly outside of radio or whatever it just became something that people wanted to listen to around thanksgiving that would make. That'd be happy enough with that. I just i had door. It's so this is against unfunny. It's such a kind song. Thank you so much just feels very like friendly and understanding. I wanted it to feel like a like a warm hug. Yes did that. That's why you accomplish. That was the goal. That ain't how it feels. And i i will be interested i. I wonder if it's if it's the ted lasso of music in that you love that people get your face you gasped. Here's the thing in two thousand twenty. Ted lasso is the medicine we needed island. Think that will stay true and twenty twenty one and i think that's true of your song. I'm a big believer. That i think like sincerity is gonna come back because i feel like so much of pop culture in the last little while has kind of been like ironic and like not as much just like heart on your sleeve sincere and i kinda think that especially also with there being not just in two thousand twenty but in general a little bit less like human connection and a lot more like connection online or like digitally in whatever way i kind of think sincerity is gonna feel wonderful for a while. I think that's going to be like the new cool thing. Maybe because it just like so much stuff is a little bit cool and like irony. And whatever and i think that that stuff can be great. I think that some of the stuff that started to connect ted lasso other stuff like that. I think people kind of like yearning for like. Oh yeah just like good stuff connection. How did you decide. What christmas songs on this with. All those options. Yeah i honestly. Half of making the christmas record was just because it sounded fun to like to arrange and seeing some of those songs so a lot of it was just like i was like these songs on the most fun to do and i think the idea is that like my hope with the album is it will over the next however many years add to it at different places and have like other volumes of it. Oh yes so. I think instead of being like i'm gonna wait for years and make another christmas record like literally next year. We might just like do three more songs and do another like a different edition of the vinyl or something. Let so some of it was knowing that i was like. This isn't the only christmas record ever gonna make so there's no pressure but a lot of it honestly was just like these songs. Sound the most saying what a great thing about how music is created industry and twenty twenty. Plus is that you can go. Let's add three more to that. And it just upload to spotify or upload apple or yeah right. Yeah that's brilliant so it can be a thing that continues to grow with under the same umbrella of ben rector christmas. I think we're kind of honestly looking at it like it's like a air quotes brand where it's like you know not. I'm not gonna do it every year but like maybe every other year just kind of being like hey like we're going to do another run of the vinyl in another edition on spotify. That essentially will be apple music and amazon all stuff. That'll be kind of like another edition of this record. Do you want to write more thanksgiving songs or do you feel like that's the one i don't know if i could beat that one. I would love honestly to right. We joked about like oh. She just released as a gag. The thanksgiving song again with just slightly different lyrics every god this president and stay. Whatever i do think Another i think some of that song was a happy accident of like pressure. Just like this is maybe a thing but i think as soon as it was like cool do that again. It's like i don't know if i could. I would love to write. I'd love to try to write original christmas songs. Or maybe like a new year song or whatever. But

"Should go down a nice. It's live should we should go. This was the week after so it wasn't as if i was just asking him. We went out and so for five minutes. We were like yeah. that's down. It be great what who's on. Then we will. No let's not and we didn't so it was kinda true but Fact supreme mangled to protect the innocent. I guess one of the intriguing things though for fans was the idea that you guys were still on good terms around that time off. Break up of the beatles. Yeah that was one of my great blessings out of the whole thing. Because during the beatles break up it was very difficult and i was getting blamed for it all and i knew i wasn't to blame but the more you protest you know me thinks the lady protest to watch and it's like I'm going to trap here. You know i it was. It was kind of difficult but over the years. Like i say i would drop in john's place i mean then. I was the kind of person that didn't know that like particularly in places like new york. You call ahead from liverpool. I don't know you just show up jonah. But he did say to me. You know does a favor next time you know. Let us know you coming anyway. So i would go and see him a few times and we would talk on the phone. If i was in england he was in america and we have some great ordinary conversations. There were very sort of endearing. There was bread strike over here. And so i'd gone round to the local bakers and cadged so east of him so i was baking bread at home. I on a phone call to johnny said. Well you're picking some bread. he said. Oh yeah. I'm getting into breaking bread. So we exchanged our recipes and methods for making bread so lovely. You know this was how it been when we met. We just a couple of guys just chuntering on about insignificant stuff. So i was very happy to have got back of friendship which the beatles break-up add neely ruined but an actual fact it all calm down an in the end. I was friends with all the guys. Yeah the film. The two of us which. I recommend that later people who haven't seen if fans but it uses your relationship with john to illustrate these two very opposing ways of looking at the world and it costs you as the light hearted optimist who sees the value in bringing joy into people's lives with music and john as someone who sees pain and suffering everywhere and thinks. It's the duty of an artist to tell the truth about that to wake people up. How much truth is there in that characterization. I think you know. It's it's very general. But i think i think there's a lot of truth in it and i think looking back on it. I think that was one of the great strengths of our writing partnership and of the beatles. Each of us had a very strong character. That was different from the others. So as you say you know. If john writing the song i mean i'm actually in the room now where we wrote this song. I'm going to mention. She's getting better a beatles song and it was like i was saying it's getting all the time jones gone. It could get much worse so you know he would provide the darkness to my sort of optimistic song and it worked. It wasn't always like that but there was this thing that was balanced was created by his attitude. And you know the other thing is. I grew up in liverpool with amazing family. My dad had had seven kids in his family. His mother and father had had seven kid. He was one of seven kids so when they married i was fourteen and then when they had kids that was twenty eight. Or whatever. You know you so a big family and when we would get together it was very joyous and we'd sing songs and it was really great looking back on it. It was like oh god. I mean if you asked me what i miss about those things. That would be a big well. You know just everyone just having a great time basically getting pissed having a great time singing all the songs on those kids kinda just bathing in the happiness so i grew up thinking everyone most have is lovely families. Isn't it nice then. I started talking to john and is was quite. The opposite is mother had been deemed not the right candidates to bring him up so he was sent to me means so that traumatic thing for a kid writer on his dad had left home when john was three. There's another traumatic thing. And so you know i realize and then is is on call. Mimi's husband died. I remember john saying to me. You know can't you know. I don't know i thought i had a jinx on the male line of the family. I kinda talk down off the legend. Say no no no. He's it's not your fault you died left. It's not your fault at the family. Decided this honor and then to top. It all knew each other. Teenagers is mom is run over in a terrible accident and killed right outside. Mimi's house so you know maybe realize not everyone. Has this great upbringing. Yeah so. I was very lucky and i think that is where my optimism came from right and where it remains in. The sort of basically life can be really good. Because i've seen it. And i think john's pain was literally all our pain. We've just discussed but when we came together we brought that into a mix on..

"Of from relatively poor families in liverpool a wish we could get some money may be a qatar oka- or even a house who knows you know so that was our thinking going into it so we got fame. We got the screaming we got the autographs and at first of course autographs fantastic. You want my autograph off. Certainly you spend hours over it. What you name to carol with the very best wishes from paul mccartney you know after about a year of that you don't ask for the name your scribble your name and a guess wearing you know like so those elements of fame weren't too good but as i say it's what we'd asked for. It's what we'd planned for and we'd made this happen. Maybe it happened a bit more than we'd expected but it still of our own making. Excuse me i'll get did you out. Maybe i'll keep it in okay. He's not yeah. Let's do some cirque layers of coffee now as well as being part of a band you have also ended up being associated with one of the more well known musical creative partnerships in history lennon mccartney. And i want to ask you a couple of questions about that if that's okay. Did you argue about whose name went. I yeah definitely what happened. Was i went to a meeting. Where brian epstein manager had a little office in the west end of london and we were going to have a meeting about this and that and i went to the megyn bryan and john where there john qatar earlier and they were chatting and and came up. Okay next thing is going to credit things lennon mccartney and i said well what about mccartney lennon said where we can do that. Sometimes i'm we'll switch it around. So i thought okay i sounds all right and there are a couple of early records where it did get switched around for pretty soon. It just became leonard mccartney and i realized you know what sounds good and so i was happy to go with what happened. Later was we. Were doing the anthology. The beatles anthology which was putting together all memories and records and everything and there was a booklet. That came in the cd. On now. the accrediting everybody all the songs with by john lennon and paul mccartney so i thought that's okay. I'd rather have lennon mccartney because that's sort of you. The brand but what happened was leafing through the booklet. And then there's the song yesterday the lyrics off now that was good. I wrote totally on my own. I actually recorded. I'm the only person on the record. Sizes string quarter. So i felt is a time when we should put yesterday by paul mccartney and john lennon i said i think that's fair enough. You know because we did agree to early days. We never happened but it didn't mind the but if you're going to separate the words of so i asked if that was possible and i was voted down. It was like no so. I said it's actually crazy. 'cause you song blackbird that is just totally me and it's crowded john lennon paul mccartney and even i did a poetry book and there was lyrics blackbird as a poem credited to john lennon. Paul mccartney so anyway. I've asked on a number of occasions if the songs that are clearly johns. If you're going to separate the names up to be john lennon and paul mccartney if the ones that are clearly mind like yes. Today long and winding road blackbird et cetera. And the john admitted or mind it might be a good idea just to put my name. I but the reasoning was proved to me. Because i was an hotel late one night and i noticed musicians songbook and what was happening was they copied them these things and put them all in copied them off. The internet was something and so. This song would be like blackbird by john lennon and there is no room for my name so by john lennon and i was going. Well you know. That's a good argument for sticking my name. I almost yeah no i can understand. I mean it's it's a strange thing to you. Know you want to protect that body of work. You want to have credit assigned where it's ju- especially that's your legacy you know I think that's totally understandable. Did you see a film directed by michael lindsay hogg who directed the videos for paperback writer and rain and jude revolution and called the two of us or just two of us around about two thousand. Yeah yeah we're this. John on opole played by actors. Yeah eight eight hundred. Quinn played me i remember. Yeah yeah and jared harris knew. He played john. And it's a fictionalized account of one of the visits that you made around nineteen seventy-six neons new york apartment I did see it actually. Yeah and was okay about. That was the beginning of the film. It said jonathan. Paul matt on such and such a date in new york and this is us imagining what happened. It's pure fiction. They did it like a disclaimer at the front. So i thought well. That's okay because i can get into this on. I'm you know. I must say i enjoyed it. Thought i wished i'd had happened. Yeah it didn't happen quite like the well in for people who haven't seen it his the synopsis mccartney on the new york leg of his world tour with his post beatles group wings arrives unannounced at lennon's dakota apartment. At the time. Yoko is away. They exchange small talk and biting insults. They consume some marijuana and eventually end up. Noodling around on the piano as the evening was down. They watched saturday night live together. And by chance witnessed producer. Lorne michaels offering the beatles laughably. Low some three thousand dollars to reunite on his show impulsively they toy with the idea of speeding to rockefeller center perform a few songs that very night. So what aspects of that vague synopsis ring true. Yeah well i mean as with all of these stories. It's kind of true. But it's not so i did visit john and lawn. Come on the telly. Launer come on the telly the week before and john. Nobody said saturday night live. I love this you know. So did you hear that more michaels and any explain the thing to me and johnson..

"Told me all about it so that was how i discovered that i it was something that was happening to our american mates in they were having to go in the army or they were having to go to canada to escape going into the whatever so all these things that you mentioned were horrific moments but for me through a time which was good And for example off to you had spoken about vietnam with bertrand. Russell did that make you. Go back and have a conversation with the rest of the band and say. Was there ever a conversation about like. We should be talking about these things in the songs we should be being political. The way that bob dylan is political in some ways. Even though dylan was never of he never spelled it out. No you never said vietnam. Yeah no i did go back as you. We are recession right. After that and i went back and said to the goes. Wow you know. Admit this perch roach and he's telling me about vietnam. God you know. It's sounds like it's a bad war and so that was when we all got aware of that situation but really it didn't affect us personally too much till we went to america and then our pr guile pulisic. I would say whatever you do. Don't talk about vietnam so of course we did and That was good to be able to say you know. It's not a great war. It's really quite sure what america's doing over there and it looked like they were going to lose so obviously was killing people that was around. When was that then. Mid sixty s and sixty s. I think okay i mean. Don't ask me about dates. I'm terrible. I only know sergeant pepper was sixty seven right. The rest of our clue good same here but of course you were caught up in the hall furor. That came off to. John was quoted as saying the beatles were bigger than jesus. There was also towards the very end of the sixties. The whole weird. Paul is dead episode. Did that stuff get to you though. Did that make you despair. The john's thing got to us are mainly got to him. Because it was taken out of context he was actually saying some quite positive optimistic stuff. He was talking to a journalist who we knew he was doing an interview for the union standard and it was just talking about our popularity with the bills and hussein. You know the thing is all the churches. These days are empty. No one's going to church like when we were kids people went to church but in this point no one was really going to judge and he said you know we get more people at are concerts than ever go to church. Said you know in fact you know. We're more popular than jesus and it was just a throwaway remark referring to the fact that it was a pity that people weren't going to church losing and social aspect and then obviously won't that reached america in the bible belt. Did not go down well and we had many a moment where remember once on the tour bus. Where like when you see football as arrive in for a match where all the windows looking out the crowd. I remember this young couldn't be much more than twelve or something young boy. Blonde her banging on the windows like furious. We'd said you can't really say well. No we what we meant. Was you know you just have to put up with it. So yeah that was. That was pretty worrying. Actually particularly because that wasn't what john admit to say. So i was like one of the only times saw john nervous when he had to answer that question. A press conference you know he had an answer. Ford which was it was actually being positive about religion but he had to play the game and he had to sort of be very serious about it and i think that made him a bit nervous. Did you guys stick together in those moments whether ever times backstage when one of you would say. Why did you have to say that. No no not really. We all read the article so we knew how it had happened so will not occasion definitely not no. We stuck together under you mentioned. The paul is dead thing. I mean that was ridiculous. Because i hadn't actually done anything except showed up to the abbey road cover short and it was a very hot day in midsummer on i arrived at the shoot in sandals and so i i did a few photographs going across the crossing with sandals on but it was so hot i just kicked him off for a couple of shots. That was one of the ones that they used. So then in america became you talk about the land of conspiracy theories right. I love him. So this was oh. This is a mafia sign. The paul is dead and none of it made any sense at all and there was like volkswagen beetle. Lower their license plate two eight one f which row. That's twenty eight. If he had lived. I'm somebody's what do you wanna do about this. What are you gonna do about. This is just leave it. It's actually great publicity for the album. I've got nothing to do with. All i can do is well. I'm not dead on labor attack. But it didn't sit of exasperate you and frustration you too badly. No not really no thought. That's the madness that goes on and sometimes you just ride and you got a statement out saying no. I'm not dead. It's ridiculous who is just some american. Dj started it. And it's got out of hand. But beyond that i didn't bother. Yeah i just. We'll absurd my album selling well. Was there ever a time when you as a band discussed the possibility of pulling back a little bit because you felt that things were getting a bit too massive and a bit too out of control. And i guess maybe that was the thing the lead up to the decision to stop. Touring i mean. Touring can be pretty exhausting as anyone. Who's done it at a high level will tell you it's great fun. The audience is a great. They're better nowadays. Because you can hear yourself and those days the pa systems were so weak that if all these girls decided to scream at wants which they often did i i it was like i love affair and i sometimes now at my shows say to the girls you know i'll be talking about six hundred. Come on girls give a scream and they do it on. It's exactly the same you know but then as say because we couldn't hear ourselves caught a wearing on so we would come staging all plenty. I don't know i'm not doing how can put them. We'd gone finish the tour but The last game was candlestick park and california and it was it was raining. We stuck on some little tinpot stage in the middle of this great big baseball arena. We couldn't hear ourselves who aren't having any fun and then to add to the indignity of all we were driven away in the back away steel lined meat wagon. There was nothing to even hold onto as it went round the corner seca patty wagon and it was like all bloody hell. No no no no no. We've had enough so we came back and started saying well. What can we do. We don't want a tour again and what happened was we had the elvis a donor of you know this story. We'd heard that. Elvis presley had sent is gold plated cadillac out on tour. He didn't go with it. You just sent it out and people would flock to see elvis's cadillac and then it would go to the next town on those people would flock so we thought that is brilliant. Only elvis coulda thought we said well what we should do is we should make a killer and that can do the tour and for us. So that's sergeant pepper was all about but it didn't solve the problem. Maybe you didn't see it. As a problem of being quite so massive of being the object of such an intense level of scrutiny and attention and You know that's true. It didn't put the thing. Is you know you've asked for your sensible. You just think well. This is what i wanted. So what am i gonna do now like hate it or am i just going to try and embrace it and you know in the early days was like oh i wish we could get famous and i.

"Is a power you know. I like the of his songs. But neil sa- same is so so neil young and he's influenced a lot of people often hear record on the radio. Say on. i'll just go. Oh is that news new one on then. Now it's another band and he's a great blog to to know him quite well. I've known him. Since the sixties is a cool guy with bob dylan. Though there was a moment with bob dylan that captured a lot of people's imaginations. When i met and the del monaco hotel new york nine hundred sixty four. I believe who. And that's one of those meetings that's kind of gone down and pop cultural music history. Do you have a city firsthand memory of it now or is your memory of that informed by just what people have written and said about it. I remember it pretty well. You know we were staying in that hotel on. I think we're on tour so we were all together in the hotel suite. We're having a drink. A men bob arrived and we said hi. He vanished into a back room. One of the rooms of the sweet so we just carried on through. I don't know you must be doing something. Whatever but ringo went back to see him on then after a couple of minutes. Ringo came back in looking a little bit dazed and confused and we said what's opposite bob. Smoking pop by the weezer. Oh good we had it when we owe so. What's it like our english so well the ceiling feels like it's sort of coming down we go. Whoa we'll just dashed in the back room to partake of the Evil substance and that was quite an evening. You know crazy fun. I'm not sure. Bob is keen on paying labeled as the guy who turned the beatles on. I've heard that he sort of trying to play it down a bit but whatever that's the truth and we met him on other occasions under those kinds of circumstances you know but it was. It was very nice. You know so. I hung out with bob a few times. He came to ceos for dinner in the hotel and stuff so oh we had some good times together. He's a great blog because in the documentary footage from around that time he seems such a angulo figure in some ways and said of suspicious and a bit contrary and a bit perverse when people are around him. So i guess he wasn't like that one to one no it wasn't put That's the thing that happens easily with famous people. Because you don't know if someone's being genuine and you don't know you suspect they might want something from you and so it's much better to hang out with friends. Who you know are going to be like that. You can relax so you do get can understand why he would get a little bit cautious of meeting other people. But he's not like die in person is fun. I remember one time which is saying to you know. I said this just friendly conversation. I said kaya some weird dreams last night. Boy aeko mazing very vivid. He said well. That's probably too much cheese before you went to bed so true. I don't know but you know he's the ordinary. Yeah so you didn't start writing songs about cheese. Instead you wrote got to get you into my life was about smoking. Dube's failed reference. Yeah you know that was what that was about. It's always good when you right in the song to have something in your mind to lean on on that occasion. Yeah i was thinking you know. This is pretty cool stuff. You know now having said that these days yeah. It's so much more potent and you do have to warn kids you know. Just take it easy. Whatever you do because it's become much stronger under for. I think more dangerous. Yeah talking of the sixties. There is a track on the new record called. Find my way track to. I think really good. That's a massive earworm for me. That's been my head for weeks. Of course got a great uptempo. Beat it skips along. It reminds me a little bit of back some of his stuff. And there's a lyric in the that. Says you never used to be afraid of days like these. But now you're overwhelmed by your anxieties And i read that. That was a little bit inspired by the beginning of lockdown and the scary changes that we all felt at the beginning of the year. We didn't know how the pandemic was going to pan out. We're still don't yeah. We got we almost talking like it's over. It looks like it's very much. Yeah that was written at that time. But i think i was. I was thinking of people who worry more than i do. And i know one or two people we just gotta worry about life and you know it's not that i don't. It's just that i deal with those worries and think no it's okay. There's a way out of this and i. I can generally find some optimistic exit from a bad situation but there are some people who do get overwhelmed with it. So i think i was addressing. Those people unthinking. You know you're never used to be so anxious but now you are so i don't know let me be your guide. Let me help you to find the love. That's inside you. It just felt like a natural thing to say. But that's what that's about the rest songs me saying. I can find my way. I know my left from right. That's right i. I think you could tell. A lot of people seem to feel obliged almost this year. I noticed when i was getting emails from people people pops that i didn't know that well. They seem to feel obliged to say things like. Oh hope you're doing well despite the end times kind of thing but it occurred to me when listening to your song that the sixties must have felt even more plc elliptic quite frequently with stuff that was going on. I mean there wasn't the same awareness of climate change. Perhaps that was an existential threat. That perhaps you want thinking about that much. But you had vietnam and you had the race riots in assassinations of jfk. And malcolm x martin. Luther king be kennedy and then the manson family killings at the end of the sixties. It's stuff that would have made a lot of people feel like well. it's all ending. You feel like that. When one of those episodes occurred you felt like that but they didn't occur every day of the week. So you'd be going along making your music. Developing the beatles enjoy the development from little covers bond through to writing simple songs through to write more complex so that was the main thing that was going on and touring which generally made you feel. Good touring got bit tiring. But generally the general climate was that this was good. This is a good time the sixty s. But as you say and be spikes remember. We will backstage on tour up north. When the news came through the jfk rabin assassinated so like everyone else. It was just hora horrible thing to hear about as well as to have happened and you know at times like those. I think you just think. God know the world's crazy does these crazy people out and there's not much you can do about it and then you know then you started to find out about vietnam which i we didn't know about because it was mainly an american a- for what i was lucky i met bertrand russell in the sixties and i was when i talk about the good sort of backdrop of the sixties. It was very free that way. I just happen to know somebody who said oh you do know bertrand russell. I said oh. Yeah you mean. The philosopher suggests what he's lived in chelsea and they gave me an address. Issigonis door so i did you know alot and i kid came who i now figure must've been like an intern and i said could i meet with russell anyway. I did. He let me in. And i feel very privileged to this day. You know to sort of sit until talk to this great mind and he said to me juno about vietnam i said no really.

All over new england. I bob dylan. And i love these stories because this this is what the taylor swift it. Which means that they will wake up and actually have some interest in this topic. Talking about my girl taylor. Swift sold her music catalog to what's his name scooter braun. Oh yeah and then complains. After bob dylan sold his music library for three hundred million dollars. That's right And by the way He sold is popularly. Seventy eight which is another one of those amazing miracles. The bob dylan still around still kicking. Well did you hear what he said about this jerry region. But here's what's going to happen you me. We'll be watching You know football game. We're watching wednesday night football thursday night football tuesday night. Football game mini mini games That around these days and there's gonna be a commercial for flow or he'll be commercial for you name it Gimme gimme some tv for apple apple. Lot of apple commercials. That's a good one apple amazon target. And it'll be Some of my friend is blowing in the wind blowing in the wind or something blue. What's blue some blue jet blue. And they'll be tangled up in blue. You'll go what bob dylan. His stuff is going to be of vera readily available companies to put in tv commercials. Because bob dylan sold out. It's bob dylan's if you don't like it if you think you know that he's Not that kind of guy that he wouldn't ever seventy-nine by the way he sold out. He took the money. God bless him his family's gonna why he needs the money but his family is going to be fabulously wealthy for generations but companies like target nap bullen and whatever flow what is flow sell insurance. Press gress yes i defense. They're going to be able to play. Dylan's pay whatever the going rate is and they could play it and you'll hear it all over the place just like you here. You know the rolling stones in some cases or taylor swift and other artists who was amazing. When i read the story it was about some of the other artists of fleetwood. Mac sold theirs for like. I get the number here here. It is eighty million dollars they sold. It wasn't even the whole catalog eighty million dollars. Fleetwood mac and dillon skate. Like columbine could probably name more wallflower songs and he can bog way. Bob dole i. It's right over my head. I have no idea i look. I'm surprised he got three hundred million. Based on the fact that that ship has sailed a long time ago dylan receives a lump sum between two hundred and four hundred I'm not sure what the what. The stevie nicks sold their publishing catalog for eighty million dollars. The dylan portfolio six hundred songs while other bands who have sold their catalogs sold. You know taking the money. Blondie barry manilow and the estates of john lennon and kurt cobaine. I believe john lennon the beatles. Paul mccartney bought them for like a ridiculous amount of money Like eight hundred million. Paul mccartney owns well. Didn't jackson by michael jackson and then mccray jackson and a falling out story there. But there's only one to look up jerry. Three hundred million eighty million two hundred to four hundred million. What did what did brian. Wilson's father sell the beach boys catalogue for another against the wishes without the kids. Even knowing and i think he sold it for like seventy dollars and a coke or something new never spoke to his father again obviously but if the beach boys is the one you would want because of the catchy jingles. Yeah that's true point and that the father sold it for nothing. He had no idea what he had. And what the value of wasn't a guy goes. Hey i'm gonna dig deep here. I'll give you five hundred dollars. Whereas i sold and brian wilson was never the same after it happened. It's a good point. But i think dylan's got a lot of those you know catch even though they you know might be whatever. The revolutionary songs at times they are a change in blowing in the wind and songs like that which will which will fit nicely in commercials. And we'll be sick of them all with and i'm sure he had control over it and limited the exposure but i guarantee you. He sold the rights to some two songs to some commercials. I assume right Yeah i guess. So i mean i don't blame me if you're gonna die soon and you wanna take care of you. Offspring kids grandkids. You say. What the hell. What do i care if not be capitalizing on all the different changes that are going on in the music industry. I bet it's like a five person team that he has controlling the catalog right. Like it's a he. He owns time. Bob no one said a need the money for anything the the couple couple of years ago. Long before covid were dylan on went on tour and performed at three hundred nights in a year three hundred nights in one year deal and he was like seventy five and i don't know anyone that went to see him. He wasn't playing the big rooms anymore but he's just addicted to performing and singing his songs and i must have just an insane amount of money already. I mean just. But it's like what bob cousy sold all his Collectibles always memorabilia. He said what do i need it for. This is going to pay for my grandkids education. And can you blame him for that. I wouldn't. I'm a big lira. Guy when it comes to rock and roll. If you consider dylan rock and roll and dylan for what i again. He's not my bag particularly. I don't have any bob dylan on my phone. But his his lyrics. If back on my i always think that you know if you get ten best lyrics of all time. You don't need a whether they know which way the wind blows is one of the great lines right and i'm with you. I'm a lear. Emma word man to and i love you know singing along to whatever tangled up in blue and he. He won the nobel prize for whatever writing. Poetry didn't show up for the award. You know. I believe. I believe greta thune. Berg was second so she'd go toward for him but no he won the nobel prize. I think he blew the market and show up to get the thing and these the only singer or songwriter to win to win it
Paul McCartney announces his new solo album ‘McCartney III’
"First solo album was one in which he played all the instruments himself. But it wasn't the Ram album. He had an album that was simply called McCartney. All right, that was supposed to come out at exactly the same time as the Let it be album. And there was a huge conflict. They asked McCartney hold on to your album so we could release this Beatles album, McCartney said No, so they had to hold on to the Beatles album. Some McCartney could release his solo album. That's the album that contains the song. Maybe I'm amazed, so they're classic and then 10. Years later, he did another album McCartney, too. On which he played all the instruments himself. And now this new one that's going to be coming out shortly. McCartney three, in which he plays all the instruments himself, he plays 54 different instruments. That

He said that the release Each day, I'd start recording with the instrument. I wrote this song on and then gradually layer it all up yet it I had no idea this would end up as an album. Michelle Pelino
Authorship Attribution of Lennon McCartney Songs
"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 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 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.
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

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.

"paul 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. We sat down the way here. Just for a fifty million pound teller apartment. Ray You look out. There's nothing was the view you get an much lower floor..

He talked to Cardi B in the car, and he also taught her how to drive, and I know nothing about other than I know that she's in the news all the time, and she breaks up with people, and I don't know what had the third best song of two thousand eighteen to.

"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..

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.

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.
