Honoring Father
Honoring Father
By Jayson Greene
Dhani Harrison: “Father once said to me, ‘I play the notes you never hear.’” Today we analyze The Beatles artistry. Dr. Louis Abbott writes, "Deciphering" (See ''FEATURES'') and now we see inside the soul of George through Dhani's notes.

Walker's Words
Walker's Words
By Jeff Walker
I've given ''Postcards from Paradise'' more spins - I think it's one of Ringo's best, and from a glance at CD's on Amazon.com fans are wildly enthusiastic, so don't knock it publicly or you'll be tarred and feathered.

NO NO NO NO
NO NO NO NO
By Don E. Gee
In a recent interview Ringo Starr said: "I've been invited to write a memoir by several publishing houses but I don't feel they're interested in my autobiography - they're only interested in the eight years I was in the Beatles."

Acapella harmonies in "Paperback Writer" are a bold step beyond “Nowhere Man.” The guitar riff concept is similar as in “Day Tripper” and “Ticket to Ride.” Ringo’s drumming enters, stops, and re-enters cleanly. This miniature masterpiece is 2:29 minutes.

You can learn a lot from a wise man. Tom Robbins, he's the man, and a best-selling author. Read his story of the first time he heard the "anti-blues lament" - 'Hey Jude' - it might provide some comfort in the incredible world we live in.
