Please Please Me

Fifty years ago today the landscape of popular music changed forever with the release of the Beatles’ debut album “Please Please Me”. By May it was number one on the U.K. album charts. It stayed there for thirty weeks before being replaced by… the Beatles.

Paul McCartney: Yoko Ono didn’t break up the Beatles

Beatles with Yoko Ono 1969

Life is very short, and there’s no time for fussing and fighting. In one of Paul McCartney’s longest interviews ever, the former Beatle recently sat down with David Frost and spoke for an hour on a wide range of topics. The program is scheduled to air next month, but has already made news with the publication of Sir Paul’s comments on the genesis of the pop-culture quake that shook the world in 1970 – the breakup of the Beatles.

“She certainly didn’t break the group up.” Vilified by Beatles fans for over four decades now, Yoko Ono could not ask for a more unequivocal statement from a more authoritative source. McCartney went on to note that “the group was breaking up [anyway]”, and that as John Lennon’s tastes and interests were changing, “it was time for John to leave, he was definitely going to leave [one way or another].” In what may be one of the greatest understatements of all time, McCartney pronounced himself at peace with the timing of the breakup due to the fact that the group was able to part ways having accomplished “a neat body of work.”

Abbey Road LP

After a decades-long, often contentious series of negotiations in which Apple Computer has gradually acquired the rights to the Apple name and trademark from the Beatles’ recording company, what might be the final piece of the puzzle has been legally secured: The Canadian IP Office has revealed that Apple now possesses the legal rights to the Beatles’ familiar recording label logo. It’s almost enough to make you wish you were back in the USSR.
