Default It was 47 years ago today ...

The Beatles had wild discussions of a Let It Be climax live performance anywhere from the QE2 to the Pyramids, but in the end they decided on what became their infamous final gig - a surprise performance on the roof of the Apple Records building at Savile Row.

Don't Let Me Down

Get Back

This is a pretty good Rolling Stone article with some fun facts and info.

Beatles lore portrays the London Metropolitan Police as the prototypical blue meanies who forcibly halted one of the greatest musical moments of the 1960s. To a certain extent, this is true. But the bobbies actually cut the band some slack — and did them a serious solid.

The West End Central Police Station is located at 27 Savile Row — mere feet from Apple headquarters. The authorities obviously must have heard the loud rock music wafting down the street. Windows rattled, floors shook, and horns blared from the resulting traffic jams. If they wanted to, the police could have walked over and shut things down before the first song was over. Instead, they let the concert continue for 42 minutes. It was only when the noise complaints began to flood in from stuffy local businesses that they felt compelled to act.

Even then, they gave the Beatles and Co. ample warning to get rid of certain illicit substances that might have been on the scene. "Before the raid, someone called from the Savile Row police station saying, 'You've got 10 minutes.'" recalled one Apple employee. "So we knew they were coming and everyone was ready for it. ... When the police raided the building, there was a whole chorus of toilets being flushed." Crisis averted.

Thanks for the reminder.

Hopefully Scott won't get upset.

I miss John.

I also miss Paul and Ringo, but that's another story.

No wistfulness here....I always felt they were using up too much oxygen...to me, the break up cleared space in the record stores for Zep IV, Sticky Fingers, Who's Next....The American Rock and Roll record buying youth were allowed to discover what the British Invasion should have been all along.

A man after my own heart! A nice, juicy piece of irony served on two slices of sarcasm. Well done.

I'd like to say thank you on behalf of the group and ourselves, and I hope we passed the audition.
