Things He Said Today
By Joe Johnson, Beatle Brunch Host

Happy Rocktober Beatles fans.  Of course, nobody rocked October like The Beatles, with the release of their first single on Parlaphone, “Love Me Do”, 51 years ago this week, October 5th, 1962. We’ll be celebrating all things October in The Beatles career on our October 20th show, just a few days after Paul’s “New” CD comes out.
 
Now let’s look back, but let’s not Slowdown at ’62, let’s Get Back to 1957, to the first time The Beatles played the Cavern Club in Liverpool, because I’ve got a plan: We can all literally own a piece of Beatle history.  The word on the walk is that The Cavern is on the block, that’s Beatles For Sale if you’ve just joined me. See, The Beatles played the Cavern 292 times, beginning August 7, 1957, till August 3, 1963, when they made their final visit to the Cavern stage.  It’s hallowed ground.
 
Technically, though, it’s not the actual Cavern. The famed rock n’ roll hole was filled in to make way for British Railroad in 1973. Then in 1982 the brainiacs in Liverpool saw the need to restore their history, but had to settle for re-assembling the Cavern a hundred yards away.  So it’s not really the real cavern. The asking price?  £1 million (roughly $1.6 million American dollars).  That being the case, they shouldn’t mind if we pay with “not real” money as well. Just follow my instructions: break out your Beatles Monopoly games and send me all your hundreds. We’ll have enough to party down there till it’s 2 thousand and late.  Stay tuned Beatle Peetles.
 
 
EnCHATed For Pete's Sake

One of the BEST Beatle Brunch Chats ever! It  took place a few weeks ago in The Beatle Brunch Club, and if you weren't there, well then you missed Pete Best at his best. It was a thrill having a real Beatle spend an hour on line with Brunchers from places all over the world - Canada, The UK, Sweden and the good ol' USA. Joining Pete on the keyboard was brother Roag and together they answered a liberal dose of prying, perhaps a few awkward questions, but most importantly Pete was there having fun in his humbly cool, thoughtful and revealing fashion.
 
Pete and Roag called us afterward to say how much they enjoyed the Chat and they were pleased to find Pete Best fans fondly recalling his spot in Beatles' history.

Macca Rocks it "NEW" on JKL
By Joe Johnson, Beatle Brunch Host

Closing down Hollywood Boulevard in Los Angeles is usually reserved for a guy in a Batman costume clobbering a guy in a Spider Man suit, but Monday night, September 23rd, Jimmy Kimmel Live closed it for a Beatle in a “New” costume. Sir Paul McCartney played to several thousand fans and millions more on national television, when he joined Kimmel for his first appearance on the hit ABC show.
 
Paul joined Jimmy for the open to throngs of screaming fans. As he and Jimmy looked down on the frantic crowd, Kimmel professed, “they really love me”.  The love, love, love carried over to the third segment of the show when Paul joined Jimmy at the desk to chat about his earliest job (riding 2nd man in a lorry), writing his first song with John (“I Saw Her Standing There”), and talking about how hard it was to get a date in the pre-Beatle days. Paul reminisced about Beatlemania in L.A. in 1964. Jimmy reminded him that they met Elvis that year, but stood corrected by Paul who told Kimmel, “you’re telling me that from research, I’m telling you from memory”. The correct year, of course, was 1965 in Bel Air. Paul proved his memory is not almost full, as he told another story about attending dance parties with George, hoping to dance with girls. He DID however, get the street dancing when he launched into 14 tunes,  two of which made it on the broadcast, “New” and “Lady Madonna”.
 
Paul is set to appear on a live session for BBC Radio 6 on October 16th as part of the “6 Music Live at Maida Vale” series. Paul’s “New” CD, “New” comes out October 15th.  Here’s the color artwork, just released and Paul playing “New” live in L.A.

France Honors a Starr
Article Submitted By Frank Branchini

All Stand for the intro of All You Need Is Love - Love.  According to Agence France-Presse, Ringo Starr has joined one of the art world's most exclusive clubs after being appointed a Commander of France's Order of Arts and Letters.
Two of Ringo's paintings are featured at an exhibition in Monaco.  The world famous drummer was handed the award Tuesday by France's ambassador Hugues Moret.

Our Beatle Brunch Shining Starr joins an elite club in the company of Chinese film director Wong Kar Wai, Scottish actor Sean Connery, singer David Bowie and the late Irish poet Seamus Heaney.
The award ceremony took place in front of the Oceanographic Museum in Monaco, which is holding an exhibition that showcases the hidden passion for art of famous people now including Ringo Starr.

"I'm a drummer, but I can do other things. Like painting, living, breathing," the 73-year-old quipped while posing for photos in front of the museum, which coincidentally has on display an old, bright yellow submarine. En Garde, Ritchie!

The Milkman
An Excerpt from When They Were Boys by Larry Kane

The milkman was a dreamer. Without his dreams, the band might have never been.
 
The sun’s rays, on a lucky day, are making their way through the rooftops of Liverpool. The solitary figure moves quietly over the sidewalks, dropping off the fresh milk at his appointed rounds. He is hungry and, as always in the morning hours, filled with anxiety, a smidge of anger, and a touch of day- dreaming—the kind of fantastic dreams that fill us with hope as teenagers. Chances are that he is thinking about music and creating a reasonable amount of mayhem during the day ahead.
 
In young John Lennon’s mind, the milk delivery is a necessary means to an end, a few extra pounds, a purchase here or there of American records, a chance to chart his future, undaunted and barely affected by the doubts of the adults in his life. Above and beyond everything he was—friend, lover, son, nephew, brother, student, milkman—he was an incessant dreamer and devilish manipulator. His small, piercing eyes—whether as an infant in diapers, a late teen in a black leather jacket, a young star on tour from 1964 through 1966, or a worldwide icon— always told you the story.
