Voldar: Новость в тему. Sir Paul Mccartney - Mccartney's Tour Is Meat-Free SIR PAUL MCCARTNEY has banned meat from his latest tour - he's serving vegetarian meals to all his crewmembers. The Beatles star is taking his Up and Coming Tour through the U.S., South America and Europe, and the staunch animal rights activist is making sure all his employees give up meat for the duration of the trek. A spokesman for the veteran rocker tells Britain's Sunday Express newspaper, "We will serve some 480 vegetarian meals a day to keep the crew going." British singer Leona Lewis is also taking steps to make her upcoming tour meat-free - she's wiped animal products from the menu when she hits the road in May (10). http://www.contactmusic.com/news.nsf/story/mccartneys-tour-is-meat-free_1137796

Voldar: Even at 67, Sir Paul rocks like Superman concert in Sun Life Stadium,Miami Sometimes it's easy to forget that Sir Paul McCartney is Beatles royalty. He's so frequently in the public eye -- touring every few years, performing at 2006's Super Bowl halftime show and enduring tabloid harassment following his failed marriage to Heather Mills -- that it can't help but detract from his mystique, making him seem almost like Everyman. In concert, however, McCartney, even at 67, is more like Superman. Watching him perform 40 vocally demanding songs over nearly three hours Saturday night at a near-capacity Sun Life Stadium, one could only wonder: How does he do it? On the fourth date of his oddly named ``Up and Coming Tour,'' McCartney, displaying the energy and vocal ability of a man decades younger, gave fans of the Fab Four and his later hits with Wings a night to remember. With a superb backing band, he performed just about every song anyone would want to hear, from the obvious (Hey Jude, Let It Be, Lady Madonna, The Long and Winding Road, Jet and Band on the Run) to the delightfully surprising (All My Loving, Got to Get You Into My Life, I'm Looking Through You, Two of Us, I've Got a Feeling and, performed for the first time live in the United States on this tour, a deliriously bouncy Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da). CHILLING RENDITION And those songs weren't even the night's true highlights. Halfway through the show, McCartney strapped on an acoustic guitar and performed a chills-inducing, solo version of Blackbird, followed by his loving 1982 tribute to slain Beatle John Lennon, Here Today, before which he said, ``I wrote this next song for my dear friend John. Let's hear it for John! Sometimes you don't say all you mean to say to people, and then when they pass away, it's too late.'' A few songs later, McCartney again appeared solo with his acoustic guitar to perform a tender rendition of Eleanor Rigby, flanked by the drummer and guitarist, who came up to sing backups on the chorus, Ahh, look at all the lonely people. Simply lovely. REVERB-SOAKED The tributes to his fallen loved ones weren't limited to Lennon. Before his ballad My Love, McCartney honored his wife Linda, who died of breast cancer in 1998: ``I wrote this next song for Linda, and tonight this is dedicated to all the lovers in the audience.'' And McCartney brought out a ukulele -- one of the many instruments he played on this night, including the usual bass and piano, plus electric and acoustic guitar and even mandolin -- for his jaunty version of the George Harrison-penned Beatles staple Something. ``George was a great ukulele player -- let's hear it for George!'' Before Paperback Writer, which featured five-part harmonies, McCartney pointed out for guitar lovers in the crowd that he was playing ``the original guitar I made the original record with in the '60s'' -- a gold-and-brown sunburst, hollow-bodied Epiphone, for those who care about such details. Other highlights included A Day in the Life, on which McCartney's reverb-soaked vocals did John proud, leading into an audience singalong of Give Peace a Chance; Live and Let Die, during which explosive bursts of fire and other jarring pyrotechnics jolted the crowd; an amped-up version of Day Tripper; and, fittingly, The End, from the iconic album Abbey Road, which ended the second encore and the evening, with the classic line, And in the end, the love you take is equal to the love you make. From the awestruck looks on fans' faces as they headed home, it seems as if Sir Paul is way ahead of the game in that department. http://www.miamiherald.com/2010/04/05/1563418/even-at-67-sir-paul-rocks-like.html

ТНЮ: В этом году, во время церемонии Золотого Глобуса, Пол Маккартни сделал промоутинг своего нового фильма "Стеклянные стены", который посвящён правам животных. Согласно разным источникам, легендарный музыкант положил по одной копии DVD диска этого фильма, созданного Peta, в подарочные сумки участников и номинантов. В общем на создание такого содержимого этих сумок уходят месяцы, мы не уверены, что у Маккартни было разрешение комитета Глобуса. А что мы знаем наверняка, это то что, Стеклянные Стены не какой-то глянцевый обзор мясной индустрии, а скорее взгляд на процесс убийства и обработки животных, который всегда скрыт от простого обывателя. Маккартни, который озвучивал фильм, верит что это единственный путь заставить задуматься людей о том откуда появляется их еда и уменьшить их потребление мяса. "Я часто говорил "Если бы у скотобоен были стеклянные стены, то все бы были вегетарианцами". "Животные выращенные на современных фабриках и убитые на скотобойне переносят невообразимые страдания" добавил он. "Я надеюсь, что однажды когда вы увидите рутинную(постоянную) жестокость вовлечённую в выращивание, транспортировку и убийство животных ради еды, - вы присоединитесь к миллионам людей, которые ради добра решили убрать мясо со своего стола(тарелок). источник : http://www.ecorazzi.com/2010/01/19/paul-mccartney-dr... http://www.meat.org/

Voldar: Вот откуда у Пола энергии столько?Неужели от капусты и картошки.

Sergey`M: Пол хорошо-же выглядит с капусты и картошки, значит здоров! (А ещё при употреблении бобовых выделяется большое количество энергии, которую можно использовать как в мирных целях, так и в военных... )

ТНЮ: Это у кого проблемы с ЖКТ, у того и выделяется "энергия".

Voldar: О времена,о нравы... Британцы предпочли Мадонну "битлам" В Великобритании поп-певицу Мадонну признали самой популярной артисткой последних десяти лет, сообщает BBC News. Американской исполнительнице удалось обойти в рейтинге, составленном британской музыкальной компанией PPL, даже The Beatles, которые заняли второе место в топ-10. Более того, в списке самых популярных артистов десятилетия Мадонна оказалась единственной представительницей женского пола, выступающей сольно. Остальные места распределились между певцами мужского пола и группами с разными составами. Полностью список, составленный PPL, выглядит следующим образом: 1. Мадонна 2. The Beatles 3. Робби Уильямс 4. Queen 5. Take That 6. Sugababes 7. Элтон Джон 8. Элвис Пресли 9. ABBA 10. Coldplay. Топ-лист составлялся на основе данных о количестве воспроизведений композиций тех или иных артистов на радио, телевидении, а также в общественных местах (барах, клубах, магазинах и так далее). PPL регулярно составляет подобные рейтинги: например, в конце 2009 года компания объявила, что самой популярной песней десятилетия в Великобритании стала композиция Snow Patrol "Chasing Cars". Что касается успехов Мадонны у жителей Великобритании, то не так давно певицу признали главным ньюсмейкером газет страны. За десять лет имя исполнительницы упоминалось на страницах британских изданий в более чем 45 тысячах статей. http://www.lenta.ru/news/2010/04/05/madonna/

ТНЮ: Куда мир катится? Кто такие эти "Шугабабы"?

Voldar: Толи бабы шуганные,то ли сами мужиков шугают.

Goldenday: Насчёт мадонны ответ здесь: За десять лет имя исполнительницы упоминалось на страницах британских изданий в более чем 45 тысячах статей. Тут не то, что 1 место по Англии... с такой рекламой и скандалами бабка на Марсе первой будет.

Voldar: Ватикан,простил битлам высказывание Джона. Vatican forgives The Beatles for 'bigger than Jesus' comment At the height of their fame The Beatles enraged the Roman Catholic Church by famously declaring they were bigger than Jesus. Their enthusiastic pursuit of the sex, drugs and rock and roll lifestyle also did little to convince the Vatican they were anything other than a thoroughly bad influence. But now in a move sanctioned by Pope Benedict XVI, the Catholic Church has offered the Fab Four its official seal of approval, forgiving them their various excesses and even lauding them as a “precious jewel”. Related Articles * Richard Dawkins planning to have Pope Benedict arrested * Pope accused of delaying unfrocking of priest * Transcendental meditation 'can treat depression' * Vatican 'forgives' Lennon for 'more popular than Jesus' remark * No doubt Tony Blair would have saved Jesus - then where would we be? * Vatican complains to Israel about 'blasphemous' TV programme In a front page article the Vatican’s official newspaper L’Osservatore Romano, offers a glowing assessment of The Beatles’ achievements 40-years after they split, heralding their “beautiful melodies” and begging the question “what would pop music have been like without the Beatles?” In an astonishing turnaround the Church dismisses previous moral outrages including blasphemous remarks, drug taking and even the dissemination of Satanic messages through their music. While recognising that John, Paul, George and Ringo, were no saints during their time in The Beatles, the Vatican assures followers they were by no means the worst behaved rock and rollers of their generation. Offering the band complete absolution, the article, entitled Seven Years That Shook Music, L’Osservatore Romano said: “Its true they took drugs, lived life to excess because of their success, even said they were bigger than Jesus and put out mysterious messages, that were possibly even Satanic. “They may not have been the best example for the youth of the day but they were by no means the worst. Their beautiful melodies changed music and continue to give pleasure.” It went on: “Forty years later the Beatles still astound with their originality and they are a consolation against the continual assault on music lovers by the record industry.” And referring to the band’s acrimonious split in April 1970, the article added: “Rather then expressing regret at their break up perhaps the question should be what would pop music have been like without the Beatles?” The glowing praise may come as a surprise to many Catholics, given the band’s very public attacks on organised religion. John Lennon sparked international condemnation by Christians of all denominations when he famously declared in 1966 that The Beatles were bigger than Jesus. In an interview he said: “Christianity will go. It will vanish and shrink. I needn’t argue about that; I’m right and I’ll be proved right. We’re more popular than Jesus now; I don’t know which will go first rock ’n’ roll or Christianity.” At the time Catholic church was at the forefront of the attacks on the remarks, but two years ago forgave Lennon for his comments, insisting it had merely been the “boasting of an English working-class lad struggling to cope with unexpected success”. While Sir Paul McCartney and George Harrison were baptized as Catholics, neither followed the faith. In the late 1960s all four members of the band became fascinated with Eastern mysticism and Harrison later became a devoted follower of the Hare Krishna movement. Earlier this year Ringo Starr, who turns 70 in July, admitted he had finally found religion saying: “For me, God is in my life. I don’t hide from that. I think the search has been on since the 1960s.” http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldnews/europe/vaticancityandholysee/7579019/Vatican-forgives-The-Beatles-for-bigger-than-Jesus-comment.html

Voldar: Ринго Старр объяснил отказ от раздачи автографов Бывший барабанщик The Beatles Ринго Старр объяснил журналистам радиостанции BBC Radio 2, почему он перестал раздавать автографы своим поклонникам. В октябре 2008 года музыкант опубликовал на своем сайте видеообращение, в котором заявил, что отныне не будет давать автографы, а всю фанатскую почту, приходящую на его адрес, будет выкидывать. Тогда экс-битл сослался на то, что ему и без ответов на письма поклонников есть чем заняться. Спустя почти два года Старр разъяснил, что отказался от автографов из-за того, что многие поклонники таким образом попросту наживались на его имени. "Я давал автограф, а они уже на следующий день выставляли его на продажу на онлайн-аукцион eBay", - заметил он. При этом барабанщик высказал удивление бурной реакции, последовавшей в среде фанатов и в СМИ на известие о его отказе от автографов. "Я и подумать не мог, что это станет мировой новостью", - добавил он. Предметы, подписанные битлами или связанные с творчеством ливерпульской четверки, действительно пользуются большим спросом на аукционах, отмечает BBC News. Так, в прошлом году обычная визитная карточка, подписанная всеми членами The Beatles, ушла с молотка на Christie's за 3500 фунтов стерлингов. Впрочем, подписанные Ринго Старром лоты, как заверил аукционный эксперт "Би-Би-Си", стоят значительно меньше: автографы ударника периода The Beatles оцениваются в 300-500 фунтов, а автографы сольного периода в 80-120 фунтов.

Voldar: How John Lennon and The Beatles Made the Epiphone Casino Famous The Casino was unveiled by the Epiphone Company in 1958, just a year after the operation was acquired by the Chicago Music Company – then the parent of Gibson. But 1964 was the year that the ringing, bell-toned thinline hollowbody guitar entered rock ‘n’ roll history. It’s unclear whether Keith Richards, who played a ’61 or ’62 model on The Rolling Stones’ 1964 American tour, or Paul McCartney, who bought one in ’64 and took it into the studio for the Rubber Soul sessions the following year, was the first superstar to own a Casino. But the mega-band that will forever be associated with the effervescent, P-90 equipped, six-string is The Beatles. Forty years after their break-up, they are still the crown princes of the Casino sound. McCartney, John Lennon and George Harrison all owned Casinos and played them in the studio. And Lennon, in particular, became a champion of the model, using his on every post-Rubber Soul Beatles album and his early solo recordings. Both Lennon and Harrison were hooked on the Casino after getting an earful of the crisp tones and bristling sustain produced by McCartney’s Bigsby adorned instrument, which he played on “Drive My Car” and “Taxman.” When the Revolver sessions began a year later, Lennon and Harrison purchased new 1965 models of their own, making the Beatles (at that time) an all-Casino band. Harrison’s guitar sported a Bigsby, like McCartney’s, but was a sunburst beauty with a stock trapeze tailpiece. After those sessions, Lennon rarely put his Casino down. It became his main guitar for the rest of The Beatles’ musical career, accompanying him on the band’s third world tour, including their final public concert at Candlestick Park in San Francisco in 1966. Lennon’s Casino was his primary axe on 1967’s Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band, chopping out the chords of his compositions “For the Benefit of Mr. Kite” and the sparking arpeggios of “Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds.” Despite its extensive service on the era’s most cutting-edge album, the Casino was something of a calculated throwback at birth. In the late ’50s, the blossoming of the rock ‘n’ roll era required more powerful amplification, which made hollowbody guitars feed back. That’s why bluesmen like John Lee Hooker preferred Epiphone models like the semi-hollowbody Riveria and Sheraton. They could be turned up to cut through the noisiest juke joint audiences without howling through their amps. But the tonal qualities of the Casino’s classic hollow, two-f-hole construction and 16th-fret neck joint for additional string tension gave it a unique sound. And The Beatles and other rockers, like Richards, found feedback a desirable component of the era’s expanding sonic palette, and the Casino the perfect, highly reactive brush. Lennon’s Casino got a prominent facelift during the making of the White Album. The pick guard was removed and the sunburst finish sanded down to bare wood before getting two thin coats of clear lacquer. The revamped guitar made its public debut in the Beatles’ live “Revolution” promotional video, producing an insanely raunchy tone — in contrast to George Harrison’s cherry red 1957 Les Paul, which was a gift from Eric Clapton. Lennon also played the now-natural-finish Casino in The Rolling Stones’ Rock ‘n’ Roll Circus film, backed by Eric Clapton, Keith Richards and Mitch Mitchell for a version of the White Album’s “Yer Blues.” Parenthetically, Harrison also had his own Casino sanded down and refinished clear, believing the strip-down had improved the sound of Lennon’s guitar. Lennon’s Casino can also be heard on “Get Back,” “I Want You,” “The Ballad of John and Yoko,” the intro to “Across the Universe,” and other Beatles classics, and was in his arms when the group filmed their farewell Let It Be concert atop the roof of the Apple Corp. building on Saville Road. Lennon used his Casino on the Abbey Road sessions, too, and beyond The Beatles, taking the guitar to Canada for the Plastic Ono Band’s famed Live Peace in Toronto concert. Reportedly, he was interested in having the Casino restored to its original sunburst finish toward the end of his life, but that never happened. Today the guitar is owned by his widow, Yoko Ono, and listed in the inventory of Lennon’s estate as the “Revolution” guitar. http://www.gibson.com/en-us/Lifestyle/Features/beatles-casino-0414/
