Mass Appeal (MM #3955)

"The NASA minute. With Kevin mason over the last few years, I've been following along with the discussion that says there is no such thing as mass appeal anymore, especially when it comes to music, television, movies, things like that. It's not possible to have mass appeal, because nothing reaches the masses anymore. No TV show will ever reach the ratings heights of the last episode of mash. No band will ever be as big as The Beatles. I'm sure you could argue all in the 1980s, Michael Jackson, but you have to look at the different course of time. When The Beatles came to America, it changed the world literally. And when you look at television and movies and music and entertainment and the world we live in, we have so many options these days. We have so many things that we can be focused on, even people in your own house don't necessarily have the same interests you anymore. That's not a bad thing. It's just the way the world has changed. Is it gone forever is the big question, and that's where the debate continues. Some say yes, some say no, I'll be honest with you. I don't see where it comes back.

"This has been sanctioned. Yeah, by The Hobbit guy. Yes. You know, it's because The Beatles have the tightest stranglehold over their mythology of any group ever. It is like extremely tight. In more than anybody else, it's like, what goes out? Prince has a pretty tight rain on a lot of his stuff. Yes. He does. Yes, RIP. And that's true. It's like, but it's kind of like scaling with Nevada where it's like The Beatles mythology is much bigger. Prince is huge. But with The Beatles, it's like they have the most valuable catalog of music and they have the most valuable mythology. Well, I think from a business standpoint, The Beatles really set the groundwork for a lot of musicians that came after them. Yes. Prior to them, musicians were sort of an afterthought for business wise. Yeah. They were just a commodity to be used by record labels. They were another commodity, yeah. Yeah. And so The Beatles, once they sort of became as big as they were, you saw them build Apple corp, build their mythos, essentially. And then run their business like a business, own themselves. And not let somebody else dictate what was going to happen with The Beatles. And you don't see that with many other artists because they don't get that big. But when they were the first group on that level to write their own music, they were the first musicians to take control of their own catalog. Yeah, it's kind of like Hollywood in that era. In the 1950s, actors, actresses were just playing guards to be thrown around and put in the movies, paid dirt cheap and treated like shit. Yeah. Well, that was the studio system in Hollywood was like you were under contract. If you're under Warner Brothers, you work for Warner Brothers and that was it. And you took the projects you were given. If you were a singer and a singer in that time period, it's like whoever you're producer, your manager, they would look at like lieburn stoler or let the tin pan alley type people. And they would find you songs to record. You know, it's like, oh, this is written by so on its own tons of this. Is your song now? That was Elvis. That was all the big name people. Even people like Judy Garland and Frank Sinatra, it's like they would have people that they would songwriting people that they would reach to and get songs from them. Yeah. The Beatles were the first people who were like, we ride our own songs. That was an early battle. They fought with George Martin when he was trying to do the same thing and find them songs to record. They said, no, we have our own stuff. And we want to do it. They're revolutionary in that way. They were first like you said they broke that ground. And they set the stage of future groups who say we want to do whether it's Led Zeppelin or U2 or whoever. It's like we do our stuff. We don't cover. Yeah, so. And then we still got in sync. Kind of did both. I think they had some songwriters but they also had a lot of farm of people who wrote them songs. Yeah. They still kind of follow in the classic like pop star. Oh, yeah. The boy band me those. Never stop never stopping. We're going to take a quick break and then we'll come back and we're going to talk some more beetles. We'll talk the rooftop. So episode three. So stay tuned. If you're interested in starting your very own podcast, blueberry is one of.

"Because you find the world belong potty pot come up with that did he invent that in the moment? Or did he come up with it at home and then bring it in and say, hey guys, I kind of got this thing because it's verite and there's not a narrator. Those are some of the things that we don't know because it's so hard to impart that kind of information. You know, we get title cards and writing to sort of tell us some of the things that they can't show us. I'm so glad that you brought this up, Eric, because there is a kind of shadow narrative that I really would love to see a documentary about, which is how each of The Beatles was in dialog during this time with other musicians with other scenes, and with their own repertoire. You know, throughout the movie, they're constantly breaking into older songs and most critics and others who've responded to the documentary have said, oh, that's them being nostalgic for their old days, you know. I don't think that's the case. I think it's that whether it was Chuck Berry or a country song or Otis Redding Bob Dylan, whoever that music was what they were making this music out of. And I just want to check, I think a dangerous thread that's emerging in the account of this period with The Beatles, which is that they were pulling things out of thin air. They were not pulling things out of the narrow. They were constantly listening to their peers, especially black musicians of the time. I can't remember which song it is that when Billy Preston comes in and he and John are playing a song and it sounds so much like sly and the family stone, and I went back and looked at the charts and slide was up there, ruling the charts in the U.S.. The Beatles didn't emerge from nothing. The Beatles never worked in total isolation. George was really open about working with Eric Clapton, you know, working with a lot of musicians during this time and even maybe wanting to bring those people into the session. There's a point where after George leaves a John's like, well, let's just get clapped in. So they were not this sealed hermetically sealed. Right. Unit. I think that's one of my favorite things about this documentary is showing The Beatles just living in the world that surrounds them. In some cases like reading their own press. Which is such a bad idea. It's very easy to think of iconic artists. They've isolated themselves in some castle and it's almost like they live on another planet when they're making their work. And I think one thing that this shows so beautifully is how immersed they were in the popular culture of the time and that they were as you said Ann in dialog with it as much as you don't get very many moments of Paul coming up with the idea for the long and winding road or whatever you do see this kind of glacial evolution of some of these songs. It may seem like somebody is kind of making something up out of whole cloth, but there's just a million decisions being made between it seems like this song is gonna be called get back and then maybe it's gonna be about immigration and then maybe it's gonna be about this and then maybe it's that and is there another verse here because these people are geniuses. It's really easy to think of geniuses as operating on one plane while the existence of hard work. That's something else. And like geniuses have to make the donuts. You know, geniuses have to knuckle down and figure out why this chord progression isn't working quite the way that it's supposed to. I think you mean to say genius has to make the toast because so much toast is consumed. There's a lot of documentary. Comes up a lot in this film. There's so many small bits of illumination that this film offers about what it's like to create something and what goes into the creation of something. I did want to end with one final question. Who is the cutest one in the documentary Glynn Johns? Okay. Linda eastman. Best dressed. I gotta say Billy Preston. Oh my God. Billy and those striped shirts. Billy was styling. And you can tell that most of the people catch it in this, realize, hey, they're filming this. I can come in. You know, looking like I just walked in off the street. Completely. You talk about stabilizing forces, Billy Preston is a stabilizing force in this process. He is sunshine. He is light. He is everything they needed. He does what a great backing musician always does. Like it was a big deal for them to bring in Billy Preston. They talked about Eric Clapton, but they never did it. Nowadays, supergroups are always bringing in people to come in and play on stuff and it's no big deal. Nobody says the band is broken up or doesn't exist anymore or whatever. To me, the tragedy we now know so many ways they could have managed the stresses that they were under, or maybe they could have stayed together. But nobody had done what they had done before. They were forging new pass. And so they didn't necessarily know that they could go off and do their own solar stuff and then come back together and be a band again. They didn't have to break up. And so that's part of it that's always going to be a little sad for me is that as I'm watching this, I'm just thinking, man, there's some more efficient ways to have done this. And they might have stayed together if it hadn't been such an ordeal to do it. I gotta say, man, I could talk about this project for days, but I think we probably need to bring.

"But he took that and brought it to the he took a genre of music and brought it to the tens of millions. It was like a detonation. He stole fire from the God. And The Beatles took that and gave it a British sensibility. They took his music and refined it. That was one thing I thought was really interesting with them playing this music with, is it Billy Preston? Where I think at one point, Paul was just like, oh, yeah, that Conan riff doesn't come naturally to us. Yeah, we've got a British sensibility. And Billy person's amazing. Oh, he was great. Yeah. He reminds me of Eric Clapton's biography where he signed up playing with the Tulsa musicians, like when he first meets his Tulsa band, and it's like they're like teenagers or whatever and he can't keep up with them. They're so skilled. That's like all these musicians are so incredibly good. And it's like Billy Preston, I mean, it's like on the keyboard. I mean, it's like none of them play the keyboards like him. They keep saying they need a keyboard player. And it's almost like God's listening and gives them like one of the best in the world. This walks in. Like, hey guys, he's just, oh, I'm coming to see what you're doing today. Yeah. And it's like, you can see like there's a whole different steam in their stride. I think it's on two fronts. First of all, it's like George Harrison later said you don't want to fight in front of a guest. You don't fight in front of company..

"I think a lot of fans tried to say she was. Well, don't you think though that this film puts forward George's dissatisfaction is the main reason The Beatles broke up and that that has something to do with John and Yoko. But has much more to do with John and Paul and how John and Paul have treated him for years. I hear you on Yoko feeling like a disruptive presence, but I also think that Yoko is a kind of a stand in for the audience for a lot of this film in a strange way. We're sitting there knitting or reading a newspaper or making Thanksgiving dinner while we're watching this documentary just as she is so that creates a role for her that viewers can identify with. And I also think Jackson just latched onto that George narrative. That George narrative is what interested him. It feels like to me. What I also seem to perceive, again, speaking as a musician, every one of them was growing as composers and feeling limited by the fact that this band only had four people in it. And the fact that things got so much better for them really Preston showed up like keyboards. Paul started to have all this creativity and all these ideas about things that are sort of beyond the scope of what The Beatles could do. And so was John and so was George. And, you know, the groove didn't officially break up until Paul said he quit. Yes, that's why I love those moments when and they're completely spontaneous and it's not like they were ever going to put this on a record. Although I can dream, but those moments when Yoko takes over the vocals.

"Talking about with George, we'll go back to mobile. Let's talk about George and his role in this movie. And let me just say one thing before we take off. I just did the kind of the real Liverpool tour with the guys that run the cavern club just a couple days ago. And it's interesting that I don't know if you guys know this or maybe you do know this, but from a financial status as kids, John Paul George and Ringo is the exact order they went from money to poverty. Ringo was this poorest George II Paul third and John actually had was the most affluent of the four. I think part of the problem with George is a, he was always kind of poor little George literally be. He was the youngest of The Beatles and see they never saw him at their level because of those two reasons. They rescued him from poverty. They put him in the band as this young guy. He's always the up and comer. I don't think he got the respect for Paul and John because of that because that's what they always thought of as though it's just little George. You know, he's got a couple of good songs. They never embraced the fact that he was George Harrison. I think that was one of the biggest problems in the movie. It's one of the biggest problems is the last few years of The Beatles, and it's why in one of the greatest leaving scenes of all time, I think I'll be leaving the band now when now. I just got something out of the clubs. Yeah. He just leaves the club. He just walks out. By the way, I'm telling you guys right now on my gravestone. It's going to say Chris or whatever, see around the club. Johnny right now. And he goes to Liverpool. Yeah, he goes to Liverpool. But I really felt that like they're just kind of like always just George and not quite at the point where like a genius too, man. We're not doing them any favors and being in the band. He's now part of this creative genesis that we have here. If I'm being honest, I felt kind of weird about George in this movie to be honest with you. I love George, but I felt he's very he's the curmudgeon in the band. My key was, I'm not going on the roof. Oh, I'm not going to go do that. I'm not doing a TV show. I'm not boat. I'm not going on a boat. And then he was complaining about dating get the money back from magical mystery tour. But that was hilarious. You know, Paul's like, what? Why are you thinking about that now? He was also asking who is going to pay for the boat too, wasn't he? He's talking a lot about that. What was going to pay for all this? George was the one I thought he was the smartest out of the whole band. He's, of course, he's the most spiritual. And I can tell George was getting angry when John and Paul were talking about India and kind of making having a bit of a goof about it. You know what I mean? And then George came out with that line about yourself being yourself. Yeah, that was great. That was pretty fun. Charlie, what was the line? I forget the exact line that he said, but it was something about you went there to find yourself John and bull was saying how they weren't themselves there. Because they always have to put on a different phase. They have to be The Beatles. They couldn't be themselves when they were in India. And George was saying like, the biggest irony is like, the whole reason we went there was for you to find yourself. Yeah. That was brilliant for him to say that. And it stopped. It shook the whole conversation down. Yeah. Because I think they realized that, wow, we just insulted him because George was so into that. But it was proven that the guy was a fraud. Right. Sexy Sadie. Right. You know? So that's the thing that was the weird part about that conversation. George still believes that, hey, George, gave his mansion to the Harry Kushner. They were too hard. First of all, the one scene you see one there, and then about 30 minutes later this too. And it's such a scene from a movie like who's that? Oh, it's George. He just sitting there hanging around. He's the worst. Yeah, I mean, I love George. But I thought he kind of held the band back. Interesting. Well, I think maybe he was just fed up of knowing that there was this quote. And like you said earlier, had there been a mister Epstein Bill a coin, you know, to go away, do your triple solo album, get all these great songs out and by the way, as we all know all things must pass is still the highest selling Beatles solo album. The songs are great. There's not a bad song on it. I just think of their schedule that they were on. 6 months album, 6 months albums, single. Paul writes get back in three minutes during the movie, which is amazing. And then they're like, well, let's just release it next week. Are we doing the TV special in three days? They are so big that they can just go, yes, BBC, we're doing a live TV special of The Beatles. Okay, book it. Think about that. Think about how quickly they worked at just how much accommodation they had of just put out the single tomorrow. If one of our bands puts out a single, there's four or 5 months of planning. Make sure it's the right time. They're so big, we'll write it on a Tuesday. We're released it on a Friday. Done. Okay, see you later. Well, that's why the biggest the craziest thing is if you look at the old beetle history, you know, they only were making records for about 6 or 7 years and you look at all the records they made, all the movies they made, all the videos they made all the touring they did. It's just ridiculous, but that's because they had this work ethic that was literally booked every single day. But as much as they could say, okay, we're putting out get back next week. They still couldn't get an 8 track recorder brought in. George had to donate it from his home studio. Right. Because it's still 1969 that technology doesn't exist. Well, he added, he owned one, and it was at his home studio, and The Beatles couldn't get one brought over from EMI or Abbey Road. So it was interesting at times to see the things that they couldn't do, you know, the things where the times when they wanted something and were told while we can't do this or we can't do that. It's like beetles. They should be able to do anything. Another thing I love that I never do is George loves toast. They all do. Joy toast. He liked the cauliflower too. He said, he enjoyed the cauliflower that they want the veggies. And he wanted the cauliflower with the cheese sauce. And Ringo wanted the mashed potatoes for lunch. Just mashed potatoes, that's it. Teeny and toast, tea and cigarettes. Cigarette and those guys are smoking like you know obviously we see it now and it was just the 20th anniversary of George passing from cancer and you're just like, you don't want to make a joke about it, but like no wonder the nonstop smoking. He plays a riff, smokes, plays a solo, like they're smoking in between versus there's two things, two things I have to say about the smoke. There's a disclaimer. You know, there's going to be some language and smoking. The other thing I loved about The Beatles, they had the most creative ways of putting their cigarettes on guitars or mics. Did you see the part where I think George does it? He puts it on a string and it's just dangling. They didn't have ashtrays..

"But my Spotify yearend playlist is insane. It's like every other track is a cagey song, and I'm just like, what has happened to my algorithm? What else is there? It'll never recover. It was like a contrast. It was bizarre. The top ten was like, Kenny G, Betty Carter, Kenny G, Bonnie vere. She John Coltrane. It was so bizarre. It was absolutely bizarre. But it just made no sense. And I'm like, is the algorithm just ignoring this because it makes no sense. Yeah. 'cause I haven't noticed anything different in my life discover weekly playlist. I haven't seen any new smooth jazz songs or anything. The final chapters of the film are really interesting because they're about this very self knowing pursuit of relevance on Kenny's party. He realizes he has to gear up, even though he's getting older he's in his 50s and his 60s. He has to use modern technology. He has to use his persona to be successful, and he's pretty shameless. And yet somehow still, yeah. And I'm curious, did you also sense that he was like, this is a part of my strategy to win or is it a little bit more just like my people told me to do this and so I will do it? I think it's the same thing. I mean, he's the strategy to win is the thing. It's like the people told me to do it. So I'll do it. And I think he sees the results, and he gets that it's important. But also, he's never been afraid to laugh at himself, like so, it wasn't like he discovered irony or something, like for Twitter. He's been the butt of many jokes for really a long part of his career and he's always participated in that willingly. And I don't know that psychology, like I can't explain it, but it's consistent. It's not like a newfound thing for him. It's just a new found format for it. Can you tell me a little bit about how you presented the finished film to Kenny? Because he takes some he takes some blows in the film. There's some people who are pretty tough on him. So.

"It has every kind of song it has the progression of the group. It has back to basic songs. It has curious experiments. It is I listen to it again last night and I was like, good lord. It's iconic. That's also that was one. I was given to me for my 18th birthday. And I was just like, and I had spent a lot of years in the please please me, hard days night realm, which is so one of my favorite beetles realms. And also kind of how I got into The Beatles. You know, we did this whole podcast without mentioning The Beatles anthology, which was another Beatles docuseries event that ran over Thanksgiving weekend or right around Thanksgiving because I remember watching it at my grandparents house for Thanksgiving when you were 13 years old and I was 11 years old. And it just absolutely changed both of our music listening and I guess movie watching lives. And but, you know, I was 11. So I got into the poppy stuff, which to me is still some of the purest examples of pop music. I mean, please, please me is just filled with. It starts with, I saw her standing there, which I think was my number one beatle song when I did our list. I don't know, but listen, at some point when they're just doing whoo and shaking their head, it's really that it's 11 year old man is back. And then and it also has, do you want to know a secret, I believe, which is was on both of our lists. Yeah. A deep cut that's not really a deep cut. So I listened to all of that stuff as a young person and that's how I became aware of The Beatles and kind of early Beatles lore. And then you grow up and you get given the white album and you're like, you kind of get to go on the same journey that they went through. And as you say, it has something for everybody. I think please please me as the one that has the most killer the least filler out of all of those early records. It doesn't have it has, I think 5 covers, maybe 6 covers out of the 14 songs, but we chosen. Including the greatest cover in all of rock and roll history? Twisted shout? Yeah. Yeah, yeah, pretty damn good. And also there's a great connection. Respect as a cover, which I don't, I think Aretha just reinvented it, but anyway. That's perhaps another podcast for another time. But it also has a taste of honey, which we learn in the movie is what Billy precedent loved to ask The Beatles to play before they reunite, and there's a nice little bit of synchronicity there. Also, please please me is 32 minutes long and features 14 songs. That's just incredible that in these compact little environments they're able to make such amazing music. We could go on and on. And maybe at some point in the future, we will go on and on about The Beatles because there's so much more to say. If you have not watched get back full throated, deep seated recommendation, this thing is amazing. I'm sad that it's over now, because for like three or four days, I felt like I was in The Beatles, you know? And now I don't get to spend time with my friends anymore at the end of the day. You're in The Beatles version of podcasting here on the big picture Amanda. Could there be a more killer foursome than me and you and Bobby Wagner and Chris Ryan?.

"Would it have been worse for the band? I started thinking about that as I went through the film again. I was like, did this help them or hurt them or did it not matter in the long run of The Beatles? One of the things I like about the documentary itself and it's sort of 8 hour experiential approach is that it doesn't really try to answer that question. I don't know if there's an answer to it. There's not, because this is what happened. And we can watch it and we can understand that George is working through his own instincts and artistic aspirations and his place in the band at Paul is trying to keep things together because he knows that what he's supposed to do and kind of the older brother thing and also because he's a type a genius, but he doesn't understand what's going on and he seems so rattled when George quits, and then John doesn't show up. And gives that whole larger speech about what they'll say in 50 years and what this all means. And John is, you know, we haven't talked about the flower pot scene, which I gasped, but there is audio that was taken of a conversation at lunch between John and Paul. They went to have a private conversation and producers hid a microphone in a flower pot at lunch. And they have a very honest, or as honest as I think many two people can be in the middle of something. I'm very tender conversation about George. And how they treat George and kind of how they treat each other. It's like the closest to couples therapy that this particular couple can get. And they don't have the answers, you know? They don't know what to do. They're sort of self aware, but they're living through it. And that's what this is. It doesn't make some sort of argument for this is why The Beatles broke up or here's why let it be is the best, you know, most underrated Beatles album, here's the other thing. It's just like this is actually what happened. This is what these guys were living through. Which, to me, it's very long, but incredibly engaging take. And again, I don't think there are any answers, you know? Well, the flower pot sequence is interesting. It reminded me a bit of the jinx. You know, of Robert Durst kind of admitting to the crime, obviously there's no crime that they're admitting to in this moment. But there's one critical exchange in that conversation between those two guys, which is when Paul says to John, you have been the boss. I have been sort of the secondary boss. And you can feel Paul is sort of surging ahead in terms of who's driving the direction of the band, and the John is in this state where, you know, he is retreated to this relationship with Yoko. Maybe he's struggling with some things in his social personal life, and also Allen Klein looms as this specter and really this sort of devil at the door for what's going to happen to the band and what's going to happen to John..

"It's fitting repairing her, interview with a discussion on The Beatles because her interest in Kenny G and her film explores whether there is a meaningful distinction between quote unquote good art and bad art. Let's start with what we feel strongly is good art, The Beatles, Amanda, what is get back, explained this project. Okay. Everyone stay with me. So in its shortest form, get back is a three part documentary mini series about the making of The Beatles album, let it be and also what would eventually become a kind of much hated 1978 documentary, let it be, which is hard to see. And the footage, which was directed and restored by Peter Jackson while the documentary directed and restored by Peter Jackson is drawing from footage that was filmed during the recording of let it be, which was in January 1969. And so this is I've spans 22 days. And it is behind the scenes coverage of The Beatles together in various studios and ultimately performing on a rooftop. Make it an album. And what many people know would become their last album. So it is about The Beatles. It is about how The Beatles made music wrote music. It's about how The Beatles interacted with each other, and it is about a last, much contested chapter of Beatles history. And it is absolutely insane that this documentary exists. It feels like a miracle. Michael Lindsay Hague who directed the 1970 film. I don't know, I don't know if he necessarily came under fire, and we learned even more clearly that this was intended as a kind of TV special and then was transmogrified into a feature documentary that feature documentary has been very hard to see for a long time. There's only 80 minutes long. And I think it really only clipped out, not only, but primarily clipped out some of the more dour aspects of this recording process. And so I'll start with this. There's a lot to unpack about this movie and what makes this movie so.

"A superstar. Superstar. So yeah, it's a little whacked in the cavern in the club room. One of the interesting things though, after the mersey beat thing died down because that only had a certain shelf life, because when you get into 64, 65, The Beatles had moved on and the likes of during the pacemakers weren't a big band anymore. The mersey beat thing was dying down. The stones were going off to do anything. The music was changing. So the cavern sort of struggled to hold on to that identity. And it got into blues, the person owned it at the time, ray mcfall. He started to spend a lot of money on bringing blues artists over from America, blues, Motown, that sort of thing. And yet you had the guys like what Benny king played Denis and Wilson Peggy king, the drifters, Stevie Wonder? King played the caffeine. He was like, oh, you know, I love The Beatles. No one know what it was like for The Beatles. So this is Benny king. And when it reopens, he sort of carried on that a little bit, he had like Chuck Berry played the cavern so that they spent a lot of money bringing Chuck Berry. You got to remember back in the early 60s, The Beatles the mersey beats Jerry and the pacemakers, even the kinks and the stones were all playing Chuck Berry songs before they started The Rain their own songs. And then fast forward 5 or 6 years. Chuck Berry's playing in the cabin. You know, it's like the wrong way round, you know? So what kind of like was there a dressing room at the time? Any type of backstage facilities? Like, where were The Beatles and to the stage from? They'd come on from the side of the stage. But in that room, according to the people that were there, there was just a couple of beer creatures. Yeah, there was a little room behind the stage. Little little room in the early days. It was literally just the saddest age and then because there was a room. On the early photos of the car, and you can see a doorway in the bricks at the back. It being bricked up to make it a stage. So at the side of the stage, as you're looking at the famous pictures of The Beatles to the left hand side, that was the dressing room. So there was literally a little archway, go through and there was a couple of beer crates on the floor. There was no rider. There was no dressing room. There was no unbelievable refrigerator one of the things like that. You know, there was a lamp on the wall and there was a couple of beer crates to sit on while you're waiting for your gig. The thing is, they probably wouldn't spend much time in the next socializing outside with the girls and sneaking in some alcohol. The only place you get a beer was down the road to places to learn how the grapes. So they go down the grapes. And once you got drunk and got thrown out of the grapes, you went around the corners of the white star. That was the only two bars within a hundred meters of the club, and they're still there, which is on the boat to the left, which is great. But yeah, back then, there was only there was one bottom mass issue now I think it's 14. Now is a completely different environment as to what it was back then. So if you mentioned that you could eat your lunch, there was a kitchen around. No, no. You'd bring it with you. No, you could bring it down with the bar, sold tea, coffee, Coca-Cola, which then became Pepsi and there is all the brands out there. The additional pre packed sandwiches wrapped in politicians. So saran wrap is what's around her up here. Is that the equivalent from polythene? Yeah, so that was it. You could buy a pre made it was already made..

Why Tucker Carlson Mocked Pete Buttigieg Over Highways and Racism

"Here we have news. According to the Department of Transportation, the secretary, overpasses in New York, were designed to keep buses of black and Puerto Rican kits from getting to the beach. And here's the amazing part. Those very same overpasses somehow allow buses full of white kids to get through. That sounds like magic. How does it work? Well, it's possible the overpasses that Buttigieg referred to are actually draw bridges manned by vigilant bigots with binoculars. Here comes the Puerto Rican bus. Lower the overpass. You may laugh at a systemically racist country, it's entirely possible. Or maybe come to think of it the problem is the buses themselves in New York children of color are being herded into unusually tall buses like those top heavy double deckers they used to have in London at The Beatles sang about just to prevent them from reaching the ocean. You can't get to the beach in a bus like that. And we don't know exactly what's happening here, but we agree with people to judge 100% that it's morally wrong. It's not who we are. So thank Kevin. He's got a $1 trillion to get to the bottom of the racist road problem in this nation. Boy, that's the truth thanks to the Republicans who gave Biden and Pelosi a chance to crow about the infrastructure because now they can start with the racist bridges. And you obviously, I mean, we could joke and say they need to tear the bridges down. The way they tore the statues down, but all kidding aside, if the bridges, I can't believe I'm going to say this out loud. Seriously, they're going to come get me in a butterfly net. If the bridges are too low for the black and Puerto Rican busloads of children going to the beach, I guess we got to raise the

"This album was predominantly written on acoustic guitars, but even with the minimalist approach in a lot of the songs on this album, I think the pairing of their songwriting abilities and their composition, even just on a simplistic level is very beautiful. So I brought that from previous Beatles album and I definitely while listening to the white album. Totally agree. I think that when I listen to The Beatles out here, I'm always impressed by how beautiful they can make something that's out of something so simple. And there's definitely in most songs like a positive attitude a positive vibe and I think it's just comes just by how crisp everything sounds totally I agree with where I will let it's like the interwoven songwriting and composition. Being able to I think you just said and I totally agree that you capturing an emotion like a raw motion within the music. To me it's just such a clear, clean, crisp fashion. It's like bam, it's in front of you. It's not like you have to go searching for it. It's there from start to finish. Yeah, that was really evident throughout this album. This was definitely a Beatles album that just seemed like it was it wasn't as poppy. I mean, there's definitely songs in this album that captured that old beetle's essence of that pop energy. But this seemed to take it was definitely more creative. Yet, still Beatles, all the same. So yeah, it was to me all the, to me with all I recognized The Beatles. It was just clearly to me. There was no fooling here. This was a people's album. Oh, yeah. You weren't confused. You're like, might be voice to men, but let's play this out a little bit. Right. Yeah, I think The Beatles have this magical ability to sonically show how the sum is greater than the individual parts. And there are so many moments in The Beatles discography where you just feel like it's not just Ringo here. It's not just Paul. It's not just John collectively they're able to give you this beautiful fusion, this beautiful unity where sometimes you can't really pick apart exactly who's doing what, but you just feel this sensation of wow, they are really expanding here, and it all sounds very cohesive. And I really, really appreciate it. I look for those moments. I remember the very first time I listened to The Beatles, the first time I ever heard was here comes the sun..

"I found out about your story because you wrote in About your film the golden age and. I think that the thing that really struck me was that you wrote about this idea of this obsession that we have is a culture with fame which i thought this is kind of a no brainer to me because it's so important because i think that often we've prioritized fame over mastery and craft but before we get into all of that I want to start asking you. What is one of the most important things that you learn from one or both of your parents that influenced and shaped who become in what you ended up doing with your life while it's a great question Well i think you know. It's the parents came from a generation where they did what. They felt that they had to do but didn't necessarily want to do you. Know of course have a traditional family. My father was an attorney. My mom was like come dance teacher. And but secretly. My mom always wanted to be a singer. My dad was this really great saxophonist and they both loved jazz. And the irony. And i talked about it a little bit in this book. That accompanies the film released later. This fall as the irony is.

Listen to that music but i realize you know i didn't realize brian wilson's genius as a child and and now i realize how much brian wilson's affected my life and how important they are in my life and it was almost like i had to go through all this crazy tutelage with my father. He was an alcoholic and abusive a gun into it into the film a little bit but it was like he was training me. You know with all these jazz records than the beatles and you all these different bands but especially the beach boys.

But i just thought this is as close to america as a country that i've seen it just seemed to be kind of wonderful and free and sorta healthy in that way. I'm a little bit shocked john. Australia has taken this direction. This is really because all right. But i wanna finish if you attend the protests. Five thousand dollar fine if you share information on social media about these illegal protests eleven thousand dollar fines now. Why has australia taken this. I think it took this turn back in nineteen ninety six when after mass shooting incident. Australians guns were all taken away is why we have one in nine hundred ninety six. There was a mass shooting that resulted in thirty deaths. It was horrendous but in a hysterical panic the australians let themselves be completely disarmed. it's virtually impossible. You live out me. Outback and hunt kangaroos to have a weapon for self defense in australia. Any country with the citizens give up their guns eventually. This kind of thing is going to happen. Governments expand until they hit resistance. The power of the state keeps growing until something pushes back against it. That's why the american founders. If you read the debates over the ratification of the bill of rights the only question about the second amendment was our gun rights so obvious that it's insulting to even write them down. Thank god they wrote them down but one founder after another with no dissenters said an armed. Citizenry is the last backstop against

"So interested in listening to some of that early stone style pre nineteen four stuff with them. So my question to you is since we're in argumentative debate of space and since we don't have much rolling stones stuff to deal with in this pre pre nineteen sixty four time period. What which which beatles album do you like better. that came out in sixty three with the beatles. Please please me please please me see i'm gonna. I'm gonna disagree. Please please me is probably more memorable has some more memorable songs on there. But i actually think with. The beatles is a better more mature album. Yeah i think in sixty four and then obviously in sixty five. Those albums are like they're maturing so quickly like they're all they're they're leaps and bounds above this to me like this music. Is these people have a sense of melody beyond comprehension. It's like how they write all these songs. How you end up with two people. And then have george harrison later writing to and then even ringo like how you have all these same people in the same band writing. These songs is just insane but that said like the dichotomy between them and the rolling stones right now is. Is it a huge gap between the two because one is sort of riffing out real cool blues covers and one is writing the most sort of like saccharin candy music. And you.

"The Beatles and me what is exciting assignment how often would you right on the mark for all the time or just at the concert right right right about them every day and and can I just go off of of course you're very very briefly here because moments together you played a sensational singa seeing Houston and I think it was the mob got that right okay now the reason I mention Dean Martin was I was with the margin when he met the Beatles in nineteen sixty four and I tell you what happened is a story that out not too many people know Alan Livingston who was the boss of Capitol Records decided to do a fundraiser garden party in the Brentwood house belonging to his mother in law and it was an incredible party because being showed up with his wife and with Dino Judea and the other kids and they met the Beatles who sat around on high chairs and met all the stars of Hollywood tonight and I enjoyed themselves it was kind of an incredible body and there was Groucho Marx then Angela's Iago born and the market and I I know and it's one of those vivid memories you never forget I heard I heard that Frank Sinatra was a little up tight with the Beatles is that true well if he was little appetite with the Beatles I don't remember them actually meeting him but I think he I think you got to love the Beatles because don't forget he did yesterday he did a lot of copper copper songs of the Beatles so whenever I mean Sinatra as you remember and I remember I mean he was a condom ludi guy a brilliant talent and and and I also was able to interview him over the years he was a top three days but with dean and Sammy and Peter Lawford and so Sinatra was huge at the time and and and and even he may have been disenchanted with the base of the first because everybody and Elvis was disenchanted with the Beatles because the Beatles not every single one of them off the hit parade anyway sorry to get that that's okay in the beach boys I think saw the Beatles as a role as rivals right what they did but don't forget they were around at the same time and they finally became fairly friendly because the several of the beach boys not Brian Wilson who decided he didn't like to fly but the other beach why is that I think call in a couple of the others my clothes yet Michael out flew to us I think with Seattle and and in nineteen sixty five and they would came backstage and they met the Beatles and they'll go along pretty well of course Brian Wilson as everybody knows stop touring I mean he was scared of flying he had his problems but by and Brian Wilson is still around today still performing getting off the off the subject he's a genius Brian we are on a Wilson I made quite quite brilliant and down at the beach boys are still performing I mean in in various incarnations harbor what was it about the Beatles that have them explode worldwide I mean what was this planet looking for and the timing for that must've been perfect it was perfect and they appeal to these young teenage girls who who but I mean I spoke to the young teenage girls after the show and I said to them we don't want you doing here and and and then years later I met many of the young women who were now older women and I said Hey you scream so long I couldn't hear a damn good and you know we had a bit of fun hello I said what was the what was the appeal and the woman who ran like Nordstrom's department stores and again she was a high executives said I love the Beatles I was in love with Paul and he was in love with me and I said oh how do you know he said well and whenever I went to a show he waved at me and smiled at me and I knew he loudly so that kind of gives you that since since SCS of what all these young women felt they were in love with various members of the Beatles and somehow they believe the Beatles were in love with them and that was kind of a a magic formula at the you just couldn't dream up but there it was where were you December eighth nineteen eighty the night John Lennon was shot down I was in southern California I got a call from a friend and and I want to tell you it it was it was as opposed to with terrible terrible shock but I lived in America I was with Bobby Kennedy when he got shot in the kitchen of the ambassador hotel I was in America when John Kennedy got shot and in a way I mean not that the sh the shock of the shootings didn't have an impact but but you say no not again at eight eight you know it's horrible but somehow because it's happened before it I don't know it it it it I I'm not exactly sure how I'm describing it but I don't know so I'm giving you the right impression deja vu is there no another another life I mean for John Lennon what did he deserve to die so young at all for what is so were you in shock I was in shock but but you know I I but that is living in America covering big stories covering it and things like that doesn't say the Bobby Kennedy saying is seeing it and and covering the off the mouth of John Kennedy somehow it it's it's it's a third or fourth time and then in nineteen sixty eight C. sixty eight I think Martin Luther king got shot and and and so famous figures being killed somehow it seems like part of the way things are and and that kind of maybe some of the shock if you can say that they'll probably didn't John Lennon's murderer who is going to be easy sixty five years old in may he is still around if you had a chance to interview him what would you ask him well I would skim I mean I've read a lot about what he said I mean I think he was certainly mentally unbalanced as the I think there's no doubt about it but does that an excuse to get killing a legend is it or anybody yeah I I mean I would say I think if I said to him what a terrible way still or those kind of things he would come up with some kind of he's been through the shrink machine and he knows how to on set so I don't know what I would ask him but he would probably give me the many aunts as it is given and I think he's written about it it it it's just that a horrible blocked but because you know this year it's gonna be around who knows what but this year is the fiftieth anniversary of the Beatles breaking up so I saw it happening it didn't happen when I was on tour but with Brian Epstein's deaths and the and a poll going his way in John going his way and all the the divorce of the Beatles was are often not and it was fifty years ago this year so I don't know I I it it it's when you examine you saying can does the people of analyzed it but the big has never thought that their longevity would would extend to more than fifty years I can tell you that they they thought they would last five years at the most I doubt when they were kids in Liverpool plane in their little band they never thought it would explode like this never did I mean even on the road even with the frenzy of what I saw that every single concert and how mad it was at the airport and at the hotels they John story with lots of five years Ringo told me he was going to get out and take his money and open a hairdressing Salam's his then girlfriend dole said he might write music John said he might write music for other rock and roll people they never imagined in nineteen sixty four that you and I would be talking about them today the way we are exactly when they came out in hit the United States with a series of great songs saying they had just you know she loves you a hard day's night all this who wrote those songs close John I'm told what a phenomenal writing machine and part of the reason they they were a writing machine was that Brian Epstein their manager I must give him credit because he turned the grimy kids into the Beatles Brian Epstein so and them to produce album off the album after album show when we were on the road it was very often I booked into John suite which was like two doors away and there was John sitting on the floor with poor yellow pads writing music so they they have to produce and they was such that was so fluent in writing that I mean look at it today I forget the number of songs but there are several hundred songs and many of the several hundred songs regular songs that we will know songs that today my kids and my grandkids no and possibly yours do and and so the longevity is astounding it truly is and and then the songs are just remarkable I mean they the way they put it together then when they started to make the flip I couldn't understand what was happening I was kind of a street kid growing up I ever you know you play sports I was in third or and and you know didn't grow my hair long or anything like that but when they switched to the sergeant pepper's lonely cliparts bands time I want all my god what's happened to them what was that then the Maharashtrians and all that stuff well well you've got to realize that when I toured with him in nineteen sixty four in in in the early years I I call it a lolly pop music I wanna hold your hand and she loves me yeah yeah yeah very little divergence for those early cell but it worked it did work I meet people loved it but then what happened wal George Martin who was their record producer was a genius in the in the recording studio and so if you look at the way that music evolved from the straight up and down south to the stop with cellos and orchestras in the sergeant pepper's staff and all the at and and and and such so many other great songs that too many to mention by name the way the orchestrations changed and the Beatles music I mean all right I went to a symphony concert not long ago and they had become musics yeah that's so so many artists have taken their songs and played with them and at the same time made them hits and Peggy Lee and Sinatra new name them everybody did the Beatles songs and they're still evergreens that played it today all over the world you've got some great pictures in the Beatles and be block how did you get those well some of the pictures were taken unfortunately I didn't have my I phone camera with me if we didn't have those around them yes that's why that's why I and what happened was some great photographers to around and Harry Benson news it's a terrific photographer from New York Cheryl Maitland who was a photographer who lives in Ashland Oregon the late for talk about voice the **** will died last year some terrific photographers worked with the Beatles cut gowns that is no longer with us traveled with me one joy great photographers on the two are very kindly provided me with a selection of pictures which made the book I mean without pictures you've got to have pictures I mean every time somebody picks up my book the first thing they do is they never mind the words let's look at the pictures he did like going on stage a lot going on stage they they they enjoyed it but you know John said to me towards the end of the second year of touring on the third year of touring you know we want people to hear our music but they come to see us he said he said will like freak show lose will like traveling circuses and we want to stop this because they come on here is singing anyway and we want to concentrate purely on our music and of course that was one of the reasons why they broke up and besides the feuding and the behind the scenes messy divorce as you know that that there was there was a feeling that people were coming to see them not to have them interesting spot in in now today we know Paula still toward what is Rango doing window is still touring with the all star band and he is very good very clever Ringo I mean Ringo and he would probably admit it didn't have the greatest voice of the mole and yet he's copies made certain songs yellow submarine and a lot about the cell pardon she's what was that one song they're gonna put me in the movies that was one of his first ones right right but but when you look at and I I know I look at them look back very often George and see that Ringo and George Harrison what kind of like the second string singles the main songs will by John and pull because the exact and and and and and George used to cynically tell me well you know they threw me a more cell yes John and Ringo felt the same way after he was the drummer he wasn't the sink at so John Paul with the the brilliant brilliant writers but as George involved and they see for those Ringo involved they turned into great some watches of their own music I mean look at your job some of his songs he he matured incredibly well but during the first season of touring in.
