Know exactly what you mean Bern; Bowie and Bryan Ferry both make my skin crawl.... can't explain why but the way the sight of either of them made me feel left no room to like their music :?
Can't agree on Dylan though, no great fan of his voice but some of his lyrics are pure poetry. Also like Marley but know you just don't like reggae. Strokes and folks hey mate.

Belting little tune off my second favourite Macca album, 'Flowers In The Dirt'.

If you're curious, 'Band On The Run' is my all time fave album from Paul!.

It was 50 years ago today...

This Sgt. Pepper classic was recorded on the 19-20 January 1967

A nice mellow cover version of a belter from "A Hard Day's Night" to wish a happy 80th birthday to Roberta Flack.

I thought that too.

Getting harder and harder to find Beatles' tracks due to copyright issues on YouTube :cry:

Managed by Brian Epstein, this band supported the Fab Four on their final European tour where Cliff got to hear Macca singing this song (also on Revolver). Macca produced this recording, which got to number 6 in the charts. It was also covered by Earth Wind & Fire later on.

Another bit of trivia - 3 of those 'Rebel Rousers' went on to become Chas & Dave (including Mick Burt the drummer in case you think I can't count).

Please allow me this tenuous choice of Beatles track as Thin Lizzy's brilliant guitarist Scott Gorham turns 66 today.

Well done Keith.

To be absolutely honest, I thought of using that one earlier in the week but it slipped my mind once I saw the corny Thin Lizzy reference :wink:
