the rock n roll circus wasnt released for a long time cause the mick thought the stones sounded horrible, and the other bands, especially the who, seemed to overshadow them. fortunately though it was realeased a couple o years ago and i saw it on amazon.com for 15 bucks. im plannin on buyin it soon enough it looks pretty awesome. btw, lennon clapton richards an mitchell are called the dirty mac.

Did Dirty Mac ever release a CD? or single for that matter?

Keith Moon on drums

Van Morrison on vocals
David Gilmour on guitar
Brian Ritchie (I think that's his name... dude from The Violent Femmes) on Bass
Charlie Watts on drums

That band is on a strict rule of one guitarist, one singer, one bassist, one drummer. Those aren't necessarily my favorite musicians on their respective instrument, but I think their styles would mesh really well.

I say an "ultimate band" thing has to have specific ground rules. Thats why I did one guitar, one bass, one drummer, and one vocalist. If it was free range, I would add way to many people.

Walrus Gumboot
01-06-2005, 08:38 PM
The problem with having super star super band is that there is no way that their egos wouldn't get in the way, unfortunatly.

Speaking fo harmonicas, does anyone know where I can get Beatles Harmonica tabs? I know one called harmonicacountry.com but it only has how to play the song, not the actual harmonica part (for example "I should have known better" follows the lyrics, not the intro's harmonica part)

I only have a C M. Hohner Old Standby which I guess has no sharps or flats, but I can play love me do on it, it's on harmonicacountry.com
My sister figured out "I should have known better" for me too, usually its only 3 or 4 notes

Magical Mystery Tour is almost love song free. Except fro the last one, but that isn't about a relationship, its about love itself, so its different than most love songs at least

And I Love Her has got to be one of the best Beatles love songs, or Here There and Everywhere. By the way, I downloaded a slower version of She Came In Through The Bathroom Window, it's so much better it's amazing what a tempo change-up can do, just type in "she came in through the bathroom window (anthology)" and it should come up, it's a great one. also there's And Your Bird Can Sing anthology song where they're all stoned out of their minds laughing through a sad attempt of an overdub, which is always good for a laugh. but anyways there's lots of good anthology ones try to download some.

It is completely random. They get on a tour bus and stop at these random locations, which have no connections with each other, at which they did very random, occasionaly very trippy things, such as having a marathon and stopping to play I am the walrus in the middle of a feild/parking lot. There is a... (love?) affair between Ringo's aunt and a passenger (Mr. Bloodvessel, whom I believe was Paul's Grandfather in A Hard Day's Night) and At the end there is a poorly choreographed dance to "your Mother Should Know" (quite entertaining). The randomness of it all though, is what leads people to call it a masterpeice or a total piece of trash. I loved it.

Metafive
01-08-2005, 03:21 PM
yes MMT was definately random, I wasn't really a fan of it, I didn't love it but I didn't hate it either, it's full of that kind of humour you might add in a school project science video with your friend that you make on your home video camera, but the dancing in the white suits to "Your Mother Should Know" was the best part of the whole movie, I downloaded it off the internet so you could try to get it there, whether it's worth it or not is your opinion.

Hard Day's Night, Help, and Magical Mystery Tour were all released on DVDs when they first came out in 1997 (I remember they were the first DVDs I ever saw, saw them at Costco in 5th grade, which was the 97-98 school year). Those issues have been out of print for years (pretty much because back then no one had DVD players).

Yellow Submarine was released on DVD in 1999, and I think its still in print. Hard Days' Night was re-released on DVD couple years ago, really nice package, pretty sure you can still get that. Let it Be is virtually impossible to get. I've only seen one real copy, and it was a video produced in 1981 that was in an independent movie rental place that had the biggest selection of movies I had ever seen. My uncle got a bootlegged copy, then downloaded the movie off the internet from a laser disc rip.

Probably mentioned a lot already, didn't bother to skim but George Harrison is the most underrated of the Beatles and one of the most talented, especially at the guitar and it was bothering me awhile ago about why they stuck him with bass a lot of the time, but when you listen to some of the bass riffs they are amazing, i swear no matter what this guy did he was amazing, and i really find john lennon one of the most inspirational people ever, musically and ideally. In a sense i find maynard james keenan to be like a more synical john lennon, when it comes to ideas about the world and pacifism.

Ringo did release solo records. I only know of one because my dad owns one. I dont know if he did any others. I once saw an interview with Pete Best, quite recently actually. He didn't seem to be too pissed off about it.

Yeah, for the Back in the US Tour Cd, it all says "Written by McCartney/Lennon"....which might be technically true, but legally its not, and also IMO doesn't show much respect for a dead man.

Paul's such a sellout these days. Granted his concert was the greatest of all time, but he's a big sellout.

And Jackson owns Northern Songs, which....well....is virtually every Beatles song (but not all).

I disagree. He may be a sellout, I don't know, but changing the name order in and of itself doesn't make him so. It's his tour, he wants his name in front. I have no problem with that. Now, if he went around trying to change the credits on the CD's, then it shows some animosity on his part, and thats not cool. But, seeing as he's going on tour, he wants to be the star of the show, and I don't see a problem with that.

yes MMT was definately random, I wasn't really a fan of it, I didn't love it but I didn't hate it either, it's full of that kind of humour you might add in a school project science video with your friend that you make on your home video camera, but the dancing in the white suits to "Your Mother Should Know" was the best part of the whole movie, I downloaded it off the internet so you could try to get it there, whether it's worth it or not is your opinion.
It was filmed a short time after brian epstein died, they were like a boat with out a rudder at that point whihc is why MMT is.... not memorable and hard to sit through all of, Paul attempted to take controll during the filming i think aswell, i heard that some where

A Day in the Life is the song to end all songs. It is the answer to life, the universe, and everything. It seems like the end of the world with that one las, final E chord, God I love that song.

if u mean did John Lennon's solo career make me think worst of him? Absolutely not, infact it made me think higher of him, his belief's and ideals make way more sence then any religion i've heard of (i hope i havnt offended any one by saying that)

John Lennon has influenced me a whole f**king lot not just music wise, he is incredably wise and i think yoko helped bring out that part of him.

Music wise his solo career i think it was great, so great songs:
Give me Some Truth
How do you sleep (one of my favourite)
Imagine
Crippled inside
Instant Karma
We all shine on
Give Peace a Chance.

In closing, John Lennon is awesome and we should all try to learn from some of his statements, beliefs and truth.

Btw i heard John Lennon say about the Beatles break up and *fight* with paul (something along the lines of)
"You can have a fight with your best mate, and come to blows over it, if you like, but then u make up and he is ur best mate again, but when we do it its some kind of treachery... crime against the state..."
At first when i heard about Paul n John's *fight* i thought "treachery" but after hearing that it made a heap of sence to me, the media just blew it up outa preportion :thumb:

It makes sense that the media definitely blew it out of proportion. I mean, the media makes it look like Yoko and Paul are at each other's necks all the time, and there was never a good relationship with The Beatles after they broke up, but Paul and Yoko worked together to try and get back the copyrights of the Beatles music (didn't succeed, sadly, but they did work together) and after John died, Ringo, George, Paul, and Yoko all did a lot of tribute stuff for him.

Bob Dylan has as good gritty style of voice, which depending on ur taste can be hard, or good to listen to

John Lennons Vocals r extremely extremely cool, they r good because he can go from gritty and harsh vocals (as heard in Good morning Good Morning) to light vocals heard in Imagine and (just like) Starting Over.
and i find bands like Oasis, who have a vocal who sounds a bit like John incredibally cool,.

Paul McCartney has probably Better vocals technically, and he sounds incredibally good, but i just prefer john's, John's Vocals make me think about the lyrics he is singing.

None of them. He was already insane, but he listened to The White Album and thought he found all these weird messages in all the tracks (mainly Helter Skelter and Revolution 9.) He would've killed people anyways, though.

I quote "If u want music as a whole, u get michael jackson" (cant remember what lady on the show said it) But WTF!, jackson could sing, dance, be expressive, and had a pretty face, tell me HOW IS THAT MUSIC :angry:
jeez watching this got me frustrated!!!!!

the beatles had a MUCH bigger effect i think on music, seen, they actually made the music, and experimented which has led to many styles of music now, etc etc u know the rest...

what do you think?

Well, Micheal Jackson did have a very large impact on music. He was hugely popular, and the Thriller era music is REALLY good. Thriller is the number one selling album of all time. With that said...
Beatles > Micheal Jackson. The Beatles majorly pwn Jackson.

And to Walrus Gumboot, yeah, sorry, misread expressive. It is an incredibly expressive instrument as well though. While guitar is my favorite instrument, I would have to say that cello is, in my opinion, the best instrument. If that makes any sense.

Haha, sure it does :)
Sgt. Joker, maybe MJ had a greater influence on pop music today, as far as starting the thing where musical talent concentrating on vocals and dancing instead of instumental skills went?
Of course The Beatles influenced Jackson, but The Beatles were influenced, and the people who influenced them were influenced, and the list goes on and on...

If "Back in the USSR" and "Happiness Is a Warm Gun" were beach boys influenced, "yer Blues" was... blues influenced, honey pie showtune influenced, and don't pass me by was country influenced, maybe helter skelter was just picking up on something else and..beatlifiying it

They were very influenced alrighty ;)

Exactly how I think too.

Yes, Hey Bulldog is a great song that you can't really get unless you get Yellow Submarine.

What does everyone think of Only a Northern Song? Apparently most fans hate it but it used to be my second favorite song several years back (Nowhere Man was my first).....and its still I think a **** good song.

I love Hey Bulldog and Only a Northern Song. Those 4 songd from Yellow Submarine are some of my favorite, i wish they had made a full album of real songs not stupid soundtrack music.

Sorta like cello... but not much. It's like comparing the mandolin to the ukulele... or something like that. I dunno, they're similar, but played quite a bit differently, and cello is tuned in fifths, while bass is tuned in fourths. However, the double bass is a ton of fun to play. I mess around on it in orchestra when I'm bored. If you're looking for good jazz bassists, check out Charles Mingus. He's amazing. Also, a kid who graduated from my old high school last year (I can't remember his name right now) but look out for a small little asian kid exploding on the jazz bass scene in a couple years. Kid was disgusting. He played bass for the jazz band (which was the best high school jazz band in the country) and first bass for the orchestra, and could play violin concertos on the double bass and make it look easy and sound amazing.

On the topic of influence, the guys who invented rag time weren't really influenced by anybody. That I know of.

Aaaaand... to make this post relate to the Beatles at all... um... they're totally awesome? I'll edit in something to make this post worthwhile later.

Hahaha. The band at my school is weak. My old school had an amazing jazz band and an amazing orchestra, but was piss poor so we didn't have other bands or anything. We had to have paper drives because the school couldn't afford paper, but it was an amazing school. I loved it... *nostalgia* My new school sucks though. **** rich preppy kids... *whiney moment* Anywho...

The Beatles had session musicians do all the classical instruments. At least, I'm pretty sure they did. But, George Harrison did play 46 instruments... so, you never know.

I was in the city today, walking down the street. As I walked past a surf style clothing shop, I hear All You Need is Love. I thought "Great!" and sat outside listening to it (it was being played very loud inside the shop). About an hour later, I'm still there, as they've played about a dozen Beatles songs.

Good times. :thumb:

The songs that were played were:

All You Need is Love
Hello, Goodbye
Hey Jude
Get Back
Let it Be
The Ballad of John & Yoko
Something
Come Together
The Long and Winding Road

Plus more (i'll edit when I think of them).

Paul McCartney the most talented in all area's of music, he wrote film music with george martin and plays a range of instruments and knows his theory,
George harrison was the best guitarest and i'd rate in as about the 3rd best guitarest in history.
Paul McCartney has the most succsessfull solo Coureer,
John Lennon's would of been the best out of everyones but... it was cut short :(
George harrison was in the cooles band after the beatles (travelling wilbury's)
and Ringo was in Thommas the Tank Engine,... did he start it?

I was watching the beatles anthology... best thing i have ever seen Ringo, George and Paul sitting round a table talking bout the beatle days...... pity john wasnt there :(

But Imagine john lennon alive now, he'd get right behind everything, the Tsunami etc and i thnk he would of written loads more and better songs.
