Musical palate cleanser, being fab edition

From, I believe, Australia, during a 1964 world tour…

Quite simply, that is how you rock ‘n’ roll.

    “John Lennon said, “I’m an artist. You give me a fuckn tuba I’ll get you something out of it”.”
    -Jack Nicholson, The Departed
    That’s four artists there including Ringo who is as good a drummer as there is.

    Gotdam hippies.

      You wanna know how dumb KornDawg is? I’ve seen The Departed more than a few times. For the longest time, being unfamiliar with the actual quote, I thought he said “tuber.” not “tuba.” Yes, I thought Lennon was saying he could get something out of a potato. (Potatoes are quite versatile, ya know.)

        LMAO! Not at you but with you KornDawg. I heard “tuber” also. Closed Captioning for the hearing impaired cleared up that discrepancy.

    They were an incredibly tight band in this period. The Shea concert is also a very good performance. Budokan, which I think was ’66, showed how the road and noise were wearing on them.

    Great performance. The energy is captured quite well in this video. Thankfully the silly, non-stop screaming doesn’t overpower the tunes. LOL

    Always amazes me how tight and composed they were in those performances. The noise had to have been so disorienting. Not just from the audience but also from those Vox amps, which are loud as hell (I own one, and almost always have it attenuated) to make up for the lack of PAs, mixing boards, and monitors at most venues back then. Imagine playing Shea Stadium or Budokan with those things roaring behind you, the crowd shrieking right back, and having to nail those vocal harmonies in the middle of that maelstrom. The Beatles were badasses.
