Goldenday: Voldar пишет: в их топ 500 не попало ни одной работы Джеффа. Да, это сильно. А у Тома или Роя что-нибудь попало? Постой, дай-ка я попробую угадать: 'American Girl', 'Crying' или может 'Pretty Woman' ?

Voldar: Кроме Джеффа все подельники наши есть. http://www.metrolyrics.com/rs

Goldenday: Voldar пишет: Кроме Джеффа все подельники наши есть. Офигеваю просто! Не то, что подельники - там вообще практически все, кого я знаю, включая самое меньшее по одному лучшему хиту от Юритмикс, Депеш Мод, Юту, АВВА, Чип Трик и т.д. Такое ощущение, что ELO какой-то чиновник просто забыл впечатать. Позор джунглям!!! Как минимум избранный гимном 'Mr Blue Sky' просто обязан быть в этом списке.

Voldar: Ну я тоже не пойму ,чем им Джефф не вышел,то ли очками,то ли шевелюрой.

Борис: Voldar пишет: Ну я тоже не пойму ,чем им Джефф не вышел,то ли очками,то ли шевелюрой. Такие события означают всеамериканский заговор против Линна. Чем он не угодил американцам, мы вряд ли когда-то узнаем. А начало положено в 2001г. С этого времени не спроста концерты прекратились.

Goldenday: Стабильные концерты, если смотреть совсем объективно, прекратились заканчивая 1986-м годом. Пара концертов к единственному за 25 лет (на данный момент) альбому 2001-года - счастливое для нас исключение.

Voldar: Celebrate the Life and Music of George Harrison 25 февраля с сайта Джоржа будет производиться онлайн трансляция CONCERT FOR GEORGE. http://www.georgeharrison.com/

Daria: ой и Петтичку видно :) к сожалению, мой интернет был слишком медленным для такого события, так что я пропустила все.

Voldar: Roberta Flack celebrates George Harrison Roberta Flack was 27 when the Beatles released their first album in the United States. Then, in the same year that Flack released her debut album, “First Take,” the Beatles put out “Abbey Road.” It would be hard for any musician of that era not to have been influenced by the Fab Four, and Flack, now 74, certainly picked up something from the quartet. These days, she’s putting her own spin on the Beatles’ catalog, readying a cover album and performing at the New York Celebrates George Harrison Concert the day after the late Beatle’s birthday, February 26. amNY spoke with Flack about cover songs and her own songs being covered: Why the Beatles? While I was working during the day and moonlighting in clubs, the songs I was hearing were “Yesterday” and “Something.” So it was natural to be singing these during that time. As someone who has been covered before, how do you approach covering other artists’ work? I approach it by being totally honest. I love stories in songs with a beginning, middle and end. I love it when they’re simple and direct. How did George Harrison’s work, with the Beatles and solo, differ from that of his bandmates? George Harrison was determined to be an Indian mystic. He felt really strongly about that side of himself, and a lot of his songs have a scale that is traditionally Indian. It’s been 15 years since the Fugees released “The Score,” which featured their take on “Killing Me Softly.” With that much time having passed, what kind of lasting impact did their cover have on you? It didn’t change much for me. What it did was make people buy my albums, which is something. But it’s such a great album. And if they had done it like I had, it wouldn’t have worked. But they added that hip-hop beat and the “one time, two times,” and it tapped into that bigger heartbeat. http://www.amny.com/urbanite-1.812039/roberta-flack-celebrates-george-harrison-1.2708307

Voldar: INTERVIEW: Louise Harrison helps keep brother George's legacy alive It's been a long and winding road for Louise Harrison, sister to Beatle George Harrison. She'll turn 80 in August. And she hasn't stopped. She's currently writing her memoirs, which she says will reveal a lot of details about the Beatles' rise to fame that haven't been available before. "It will basically tell what my life's been like, and include all the parts of it where I was involved with my brother," she told us in a recent phone interview. "And I'd also like for the first time to have people know publicly that I was totally involved for that whole first year in 1963 in talking to Brian and George Martin and Dick James and Capitol Records and everything and working very very hard to get them established in the United States. That's something that nobody knows about. It's about time the people at Apple were aware that I was part of the team before my brother and the Beatles had any assets to protect." She says there are things her brother didn't even know. "I never ever told George about it because I was afraid if it didn't work, I didn't want to disappoint him. But I worked really hard with Brian Epstein. I was writing to him just about every week. I was researching all the magazines over here and everything and going to all the radio stations trying to get them played, reporting back to Brian on this whole payola thing that was going on over here in those days. And all of that kind of thing." She currently works with the Beatles tribute group Liverpool Legends, who put on shows in Branson, Mo. at the Mansion Theatre. It's something she's very proud of. "People who come out at the end of the show say to me, "This is the best show I've ever seen. And these are people that go to Vegas and Broadway and everywhere. You know, we're really doing something right." She says she does a segment in the show concentrating on George's music. "One of the things that I have done in our show when I go talk to the audience is just before the end of the intermission I sometimes do an audio version of his lyrics. And one of the things that I worked in at high school and college was dramatic speaking. And so, I will read the words of his songs. I'll say, 'Life goes within you and without you' and really expressing what he's trying to say in a way that people can understand what his lyrics are all about. I'm going to do be doing a whole chapter (in the book) on some of what George was really talking about in some of his songs, which sometimes has been misunderstood." Beatle fans come from all walks of life. They even include U.S. presidents. One is President Bill Clinton. "President Clinton, I've known him and met him several times," Louise says."I actually first met him when my brother died and I was in New York doing a TV show. And he called me at the studio and invited me to his office in Harlem to offer his condolensces. He was really very nice and we had a good talk. I've always been a great admirer of his." Clinton's library and museum in Little Rock, Ark., also has a nice piece of Beatles memorabilia -- a copy of "Meet the Beatles" autographed by all four members on loan from Louise. Another fan is President Barack Obama. "I met him when he was running for senator and I was invited to speak at a gathering in Mount Vernon. And after I'd given my little chat to the people, the mayor of Mount Vernon came over to me with this young fellow. And he said, 'Here's somebody that would like to have his picture taken with you. He's a big Beatle fan.' That's how I got my picture taken with Barack Obama. Not that I was trying to have my picture taken with the president, but the other way around." She says George's music is resonating more than ever. "I can still listen to it over and over and never tired of. What he was trying to say. I remember one time it was around about 'Gone Troppo' or 'Extra Texture.' They weren't selling very well. But he had some songs on them that were really really remarkably insightful. And I can remember talking to him on the phone and saying, 'Hey, you know, it's such a pity they're not selling as well because you're really making some wonderful comments that people really need to hear.' And he said to me, 'Well, as long as one person understands what I'm saying, it's worth doing." And that was his attitude. So long as one or two people understand what you're trying to do, it's worth doing." Harrison and the Liverpool Legends have a sold-out show tonight in Joplin, Mo., the night of George's birthday. They have a one-week engagement at the Mansion Theatre in Branson starting March 15, then return for their regular engagement starting April 19. And Harrison says a big birthday party is planned for her at the Mansion in Branson when she turns 80 in August. http://www.examiner.com/beatles-in-national/special-louise-harrison-helps-keep-brother-george-s-legacy-alive

Voldar: Happy Birthday George Harrison 2011 The weather was wet in Los Angeles Friday night, but that didn't stop George Harrison fans from joining at his Hollywood Walk of Fame star for a 68th birthday tribute to the late Beatle. Organizer Jerry Rubin told us, "About two dozen George Harrison fans braved the rain to celebrate his 68th. Everyone had a fantastic time. Cake, music, poetry, and a closing circle of peace around George's Hollywood Walk of Fame Star as "Here Comes the Sun" played through the cold and wet, but inspirational evening."

Voldar: Producer says soundtrack for Scorsese George Harrison doc nearly finished The latest podcast of Geoff Lloyd's Hometime Show on Absolute Radio in the UK featured a 10-minute segment taped at Abbey Road Studios with Giles Martin, son of Beatles producer Sir George Martin. Martin discussed some of his past projects and current ones. He called working with the Beatles Rock Band game "great fun" and "a great experience." "The weird thing about it was we spent years making sure every single track in the 'Rock Band' game sounding perfect and how exactly it did on record by it. It's a very complicated thing to do. And the weird thing is working in the video game industry anything you do is gone within two months. I went from working from working with Cirque du Soleil and feeling like a nerd because they're all athletes and acrobats to working with computer games people where I suddenly became Adonis," he said. Lloyd asked Martin if working so closely with the Beatles recordings as he has make it impossible to hear them in the same way again. "The way I listen to a Beatles track on the radio I really enjoy it. I've done a lot of hours work on Beatles and there's no better band to work on for a lot of hours." Martin said he's currently working on the soundtrack for the George Harrison Martin Scorsese documentary. "I'm currently working on that, which we're just finishing up, which is really good, really interesting," he told Lloyd. "Music's always been a big part of his (Scorsese) films and he's incredibly precise about what he wants. At the same time, I have to be precise how the Beatles' music should be in 5.1. It's been really good fun." He also said he's working on music for a Cirque du Soleil show about Michael Jackson. Martin called Abbey Road "the best studio in the world" and says he has his own private area in which to work. He also revealed his favorite biscuit is Chocolate Olivers, which his father brought to a Beatles recording sessions. He said John Lennon liked them so much he bought cases of them. http://www.examiner.com/beatles-in-national/giles-martin-says-soundtrack-for-scorsese-george-harrison-documentary-almost-fin-1

Voldar: Вдова Джорджа Харрисона посетила Бангладеш Президент и генеральный директор американского фонда UNICEF Кэрил Стэрн посетила Бангладеш вместе с Оливией Харрисон, вдовой Джорджа Харрисона. "Заканчивается второй день моего пребывания в Бангладеш, и мне очень хочется поделиться своими чувствами и переживаниями" - пишет она в своём письме. Джорджа Харрисона любят здесь, и приезд Оливии расценивается как приезд самого Джорджа. "День для меня начался в местном офисе UNICEF, сотрудники которого достаточно взрослые и помнят концерт Джорджа для Бангладеш." Они выразили свою благодарность Оливии, и та не сдержала слёз. "Что касается детей и подростков, то они тоже помнят Джорджа. Я посетила Центр поддержки беспризорных детей. Дети от 8 до 18 лет приходят в центр, потому что у них нет дома, и им негде переночевать. Здесь они получают образование, навыки для какой-либо профессии, а также отдыхают, например играют на инструментах или танцуют. Старшие помогают младшим, и всё у них хорошо! Они спели для нас. Когда они пели "We shall Overcome", я снова не смогла сдержать слёз", - рассказывает Оливия. А вот что сказала президент фонда: "Для нас Джордж Харрисон - легендарный Битл и благотворитель, так как он использовал свой талант ради пользы других людей. Но мы должны понимать, что для Оливии он прежде всего любимый муж. Это противоречивая поездка. С одной стороны Оливия вновь ощутила гордость за своего великого мужа, с другой, опять почувствовала, как ей его не хватает". Джордж Харрисон организовал один из первых в истории человечества благотворительных концертов. Этот концерт был в 1971 году. Деньги, полученные от концерта, пошли на восстановление пострадавшего от циклона Бангладеш. Жители этой страны до сих пор помнят этот поступок Джорджа, вот почему они так тепло встретили Оливию. http://www.beatles.ru/news/news.asp?news_id=6697
