Beatlemania 2.0By Steffen • Sep 9th, 2009 • Category: 26th Story, Music
For the last few weeks I’ve been eating, breathing, and sleeping with The Beatles on the brain–but with good reason. We’re publishing You Never Give Me Your Money: The Battle for the Soul of the Beatles by Peter Doggett, a British journalist and rock historian, which is slated to come out Summer 2010. As the title suggests, the book explores in meticulous detail the events that lead up to the break-up and the eventual collapse of their cooperative experiment, Apple Corps.
Lucky for us, even though the group disbanded nearly four decades ago, The Beatles are back! Today marks the release of the highly anticipated The Beatles: Rock Band, along with remastered versions of The Beatles’ entire discography. There is something magical about listening to this montage of Beatles classics and watching the Fab Four come back to life. And of course, I can’t wait to rock out (virtually) at The Cavern or in a field of psychadellic, LSD inspired flowers. Rock bands may come and go, but The Beatles never die.
p.s. John Lennon would be happy to know that Beatlemania 2.0 would make its resurgence on 09/09/09 – his lucky number was 9!
