THE BEATLES ABBEY ROAD 40TH ANNIVERSARY 2009
Hundreds of Beatles fans swarmed Abbey Road on Saturday, singing songs and snarling traffic to mark 40 years since John, Paul, George and Ringo strode across the leafy north London street and into the history books. The famous photo of the Beatles graced the cover of "Abbey Road," the last album they recorded together, and shows the band mates walking across the zebra-striped asphalt. It remains one of music's best-known album covers, endlessly imitated and parodied. Although the shoot itself took only a few minutes, so carefully studied was the cover for signs and symbolism that some fans came to the conclusion that Paul McCartney -- who appears barefoot and out of step with the rest -- had secretly died. McCartney himself made fun of the bizarre conspiracy theory in the title of his 1993 concert album, "Paul Is Live." The ease with which fans can imitate the scene has drawn throngs of tourists to the site every day, turning the street into "a shrine to the Beatles," said Richard Porter, who owns the nearby Beatles Coffee Shop and organized Saturday's event. Crowds spilled into the street, cameramen jostled for angles and exasperated drivers honked their horns. "I didn't expect so many people to be here," said German visitor Tschale Haas, 50, who was dressed in a Sgt. Pepper jacket. Abbey Road, which cuts through London's well-to-do neighborhood of St. John's Wood, is home to the studios where the group recorded much of its work. The group decided to shoot the photograph in August 1969. Photographer Iain Macmillan stood on a stepladder and police held up traffic while the Beatles walked back and forth across the street. The enduring popularity of the site has caused headaches for local authorities, who have had to move the Abbey Road street sign up out of reach to prevent theft and repaint the wall every three months to hide fans' graffiti. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Thousands of Beatles fans marked the 40th anniversary of the Beatles being photographed at the Abbey Road zebra crossing on Saturday 8th August. Fans were lead across the most famous black and white stripes in London by the Beatles tribute band 'Sgt Pepper’s Only Dart Board Band', who were dressed in replica Beatles outfits and arrived in a replica of John Lennon’s psychedelic Rolls Royce. They crossed exactly 40 years to the minute (11:35) since the Beatles. The crowds celebrated the occasion by singing some of the Fab Four's best-loved hits as they jammed into the road on and around the zebra crossing. It was back on 8th August 1969, at 11.35am, when the 'Fab Four' walked across a zebra crossing in St John's Wood posing for a photo that was to be used on their last album to be recorded. Hardly an earth-shattering event, but since then millions of people have come to the very same crossing to imitate them and Abbey Road has never been the same since and has become a shrine for Beatles fans World-wide for years. The renowned pose of The Beatles on the Abbey Road crossing endures as one of the most famous LP covers of all time. The idea for the picture was most probably Paul McCartney's as he had drawn a sketch showing how the picture should look. For the photo shoot, The Beatles congregated by the crossing at around 11.35am. The day 40 years ago was gloriously sunny and photographer Iain MacMillan stood on a step ladder in the middle of the road to get the required angle. The whole session only took only 10 minutes and only 6 photographs were taken and shot was used for the album cover.

Visitors to the ride, which is backed by the band's company Apple Corps, will be able to join characters from the movie such as Captain Fred, the Nowhere Man and the villainous Blue Meanies. Based at Berlin's multimillionpound Music Box entertainment complex, Yellow Submarine is the world's first such hitech Beatles ride. Fans will be able to take part in interactive adventures to a soundtrack of the group's songs as the submarine completes its mission, visiting Pepperland and diving through a 3D Sea of Holes. The psychedelic animated film first seen in 1968 was rereleased last year along with a revamped soundtrack. Apple is now planning further rides at entertainment centres in Tokyo and San Francisco as well as the German one. "This fun ride was a product of both great coincidence and great planning and design," said Neil Aspinall, head of Apple. "Sony Development came to us with an approach to involve The Beatles in the Music Box at the same time that Apple was not only planning the relaunch of Yellow Submarine but during a time when we, too, were exploring how to take advantage of the new technology, specifically around ideas like virtual reality attractions." The ride opens to the public from January 20th. SHOTLIST: CLIP 'SERGEANT PEPPER'S LONELY HEARTS CLUB BAND'; GV EXT.

POP MUSIC
Pete Fornatale 59:39 Pete Fornatale back with you on mixed bag radio with my special guests today. Jimmy Webb we are at the Museum of television and radio in New York City. Jimmy unfortunately, a short time ago, we heard the news about the passing of Richard Harris. And I was one Wondering almost immediately from then to this moment, how you heard about it and what went through your mind when you did hear about it? Jimmy Webb 1:00:10 Well it was it was very anticlimactic, because they have now they have the scrolls at the bottom of all the newscasts. And so more likely than not, you're going to hear about it. While you're watching someone else in the thing is going to roll by it's gonna say Richard Harris, and that will catch your eye and it says Richard Harris dead at done another nada die. I said it went, Oh, well, it was terrible. It was terrible because we had so much unfinished business between us because we had sort of spent a lifetime sparring with each other over various issues. And I'm immediately kind of went into some deep mourning. It took me back to my youth because when I met Richard, I was only about 20 years old, he was 40 or so. And he literally took me out to educate me in the ways of the world, which he wasn't, you know, and he was an expert in the ways of the world. And so, you know, he, he, you know, taught me how to lay siege to pubs and, and capture fair maidens carry them off and despoil them and then, you know, drink all the wine in the house and then go to someone else's house and capture their house and spoil it. But I just, I just loved him. So there's no, there's no way I could ever tell. In words. The love I had for this great big riotously funny, explosive man who believed so much in my music that he would take this outrageous seven minute 21 second long song and insist on recording it insist that it was going to be a hit and by God it was a hit, you know, just just an amazing guy. Pete Fornatale 1:02:27 How did that unlikely pairing come about? Jimmy Webb 1:02:35 Well he and I used to it goes back to LA to some charity work, we were doing together some benefits, doing the late 60s and just hanging around the piano and doing some pints. And I have to say that my standard disclaimer is I don't drink anymore okay, but in those days I really used to put it away and there's nothing that goes quite as well with drank as Irish music. And he must have taught me 40 or 50 Irish songs and three four weeks beautiful things like don't give me a little piano here. Jimmy Webb 1:03:48 the stuff got under my skin in a big way. You know, and a lot of the foci stuff that came later the the highwayman, the Moon is a Harsh Mistress a lot. A lot of this stuff was was really the seeds were planted by Richard and by this by trips that we took to Ireland and just wonderful things that we did together. But to answer your question specifically about how that album happened, is we kept saying, Well, one day we'll make a record together. One. Jimmy Webb, you always call me Jimmy Webb never called me Jimmy never called me Webb. Always call me Jimmy Webb. He said Hi, Jimmy Webb one day we'll have to make a record together. And I'd say yeah, Richard. Sure. We'll do that. You know, and, again, give it no more thought. And then one day, a telegram arrives at my house in Los Angeles and it says, Do Jimmy.Come London? Make record? Love Richard. That would be the telegraph. And the next thing you know, I'm on a plane to London and I've got all my songs with me. We're in his apartment and we're going through song after song after song. No, no, no. Don't like that. Don't care for that. Nope, nope. Nope. Like that one like that one. No, don't like that. Finally, same situation with as with Artie Garfunkel, you get through all the songs and there's no songs left. And he says, well, is that it? Is that all? Well, no, I've got this one song that was written for somebody else. And they turned it down. And every songwriter has one of those way down at the bottom of the trunk. He just kind of hesitate to bring it out. He said, let's see it. So I brought it out. It's huge. It goes put it up on the piano. I think I played I played. Jimmy Webb 1:06:23 He said, I'll have that. That was that was the end of it. It was done. It was a done deal. And then it was all Jimmy Webb 1:06:42 everybody thought we were crazy. You know, and they I mean, they absolutely thought we were crazy. When the radio stations got the record. They said what is this? You know, I mean, it would have been some FM stations that had played jams by Bob Dylan and the doors and different things but never this highly structured and you know, almost classical music. And and the most unlikely thing in the world happened I became a huge international success. I mean, absolutely mind blowing. There. There are little ripples around MacArthur Park, we actually could do a show about MacArthur Park, Pete Fornatale 1:07:26 no question. You use the word big. It was a phenomenon. Jimmy Webb 1:07:31 It's you know, it's been recorded over 500 times. Pete Fornatale 1:07:34 And it's had more lives than a cat. Jimmy Webb 1:07:37 Well, some of the some of the people who have recorded it makes an interesting list, I think just is kind of illuminating in itself. And these just come off the top my head. Maynard Ferguson, Don Ellis, Tony Bennett, Liza Minnelli, Frank Sinatra did the center section. Don novella did it in character as Father Guido Sarducci, which was really a kick. Pete Fornatale 1:08:09 I gotta find that one. Jimmy Webb 1:08:11 It was in the movie airplane to there's a big elevator that comes down. That holds about 50 people and the doors open and there's a stampede of people trying to get out of the elevator because the music is playing MacArthur Park. I gave them I gave them permission to do all this stuff. There's the weird Weird Al Yankovic did Jurassic Park is melting in the dark and he had he had a he had a Tyrannosaurus rex eat Barney. And it i It it it literally there's story after story after story. Artists who just couldn't leave it, they can't leave it alone to this day. They can't leave it alone. Especially comedians comedians loved it. And it was just it was it was it was done in Germany. It's been it's been a hit in Germany like 10 times, to fraudulence. You know, I mean, you know, who knows? Who knows what's going on out there? I mean, we didn't know. We had no idea. And in fact, one of the great you know, God bless him. I mean, he's gone now, one of the great turmoils of our lives and one of the bones of contention that was between us for so many years. Was that one night when we were riding back from the studio at Lansdowne Road. And we were just two fellows on a lark. Does anyone seriously think we thought we were going out to sell platinum albums? I mean, we were drunk. We had a he used to take a picture of PIMS to the studio every night like a Pimm's number one and then was to two benches, two stools in front of the microphone. One was for Richard and one was for the pims. And as soon as the pims was gone, the session was over. This is about how this is how serious we were. So one night we're motoring along in a phantom five Rolls Royce. These things were gorgeous. You know, you saw John Lennon had one that was painted all in rain, psychedelic colors. And we're going along in the Phantom five. And he says, I tell you what, Jimmy Webb. Unknown Speaker 1:10:31 He said, If this record is a hit, is as if it's a hit. I had to give you this phantom five. Jimmy Webb 1:10:43 And I said no, no, Richard. Yeah. No, you don't have to do that. No, no, no. I'll give you this phantom five, if this records a hit, if this records number two, if it's number two. Right. You would give me this car? Well, MacArthur Park was number two in the United States for weeks. We never, we never got into number one. I can't remember why. But I think it was, hey, Jude. I think it was hey, Jude kept us out. And it was number one in France. And it was number one in Germany. And it was number one in Australia. And it was number one in New Zealand. And it was was this international phenomenon. So he clearly Oh, owed me this car. I mean, let's let's, let's just put it right out there. Okay, he opened his big mouth, and he clearly owed me this car, right? Pete Fornatale 1:11:45 Is there a buck coming? Jimmy Webb 1:11:46 He never gave it. Pete Fornatale 1:11:48 I'm shocked. Jimmy Webb 1:11:50 He never gave it to me. He could never bring himself to give it to me. God bless him. Did he tried to give me other cars? He tried to wiggle other cars and say, Well, why don't you take this Bentley? Why don't you take this? Now I've got this nice silver shadow. That's 1917. That's a gorgeous, you know, he would he would run ringers in on me. But he didn't want to give me that car. And I think it had something to do with the royal household. I think he'd gotten it from Princess Margaret or something. And he had any sort of sentimental attachment to it. Pete Fornatale 1:12:28 What did he make the offer under the influence? That might be the only out I'd give him? Jimmy Webb 1:12:33 No, especially especially under the influence he got. He pays up. All right now, especially if he's drunk, he's got to pay and my passion in the whole situation. And he got angry at me for telling this story. And I, I stopped telling it. Because I knew that there were reverberating reverberations, from me telling the story. So I'm bummed up and stop telling. But my passion was, came straight from the heart. It was out of love of that man that I wanted his car. And for no other reason. Not because it was a Rolls Royce. Not because it was worth X dollars. But because of MacArthur Park and because of his promise, and because he was my friend and because I loved him like a father and a brother and God all rolled into one. That's why I wanted that car. That's why I wanted it. And that's why I never really completely fully accepted that he didn't give it to me. Pete Fornatale 1:13:55 Jimmy, tell me true. Did he ever walk in to the studio or your house and say, Jimmy Webb, what the hell does this mean? Jimmy Webb 1:14:10 No. He knew exactly what it meant. We were the only two people in the world who knew what it meant. And now he's dead. Pete Fornatale 1:14:22 I once asked you this question, I will ask it exactly the same way again, is MacArthur Park your rosebud? Jimmy Webb 1:14:31 It it's? Well, you know what? It's interesting. It's a surreal piece, sort of written in the style of a lot of psychedelia. A lot of psychedelic lyrics that go unchallenged. They marched right across the drawbridge nights in white satin, that what's that about? And what were Strawberry Fields in I mean, a lot of these psychedelic songs just marched right across the drawbridge. But when MacArthur Park marches up to the drawbridge, hold there. Hold hold. Is that MacArthur Park? I hear down there. We'll have to see your papers, please. You know, I mean, so much trash was written that was just a bunch more psychedelic trash. I mean, let's be honest, party, there's a not very nice love song in the middle of it called after all the loves in my life. It's the natrual loved and recorded as a separate song. And then there's MacArthur Park. And there's the fast bit and there's the classical bit. And it's seven minutes 21 seconds long. And, and a bit of a monster, because it did become that sort of rosebud. Like, question that follows you around for the rest of your life, whether you like it or not, that will probably be somewhere there in your epitaph after your, you know, that's that will be the last crack that someone will make about you after you you know, died a horrible death is an anyway, what did the cake out in the rain mean? You know, and that will be the last thing said about you. You know, and you just, you know, I don't know, you just create certain things. I mean, we have all created monster Frankenstein created a monster walked about the countryside, you know, disturbing the neighbors. I mean, this is MacArthur Park, it's this big thing that got loose. And no one, no one knows how it got loose, and it wasn't supposed to get loose. And people were saying and who said it loose. They wanted to, to blame someone and was just there Pete Fornatale 1:16:54 in your mind who opened the door to that kind of songwriting, songwriting that was imagistic songwriting that was surreal, as you say, Jimmy Webb 1:17:05 Oh, it was the Beatles. Yeah, it was the Beatles. It was the Beatles using drugs and, and slamming. Well, Bob Dylan was really doing some incredible things lyrically, so I can't, I can't say I wasn't influenced by Bob Dylan. But clearly, I mean, the Beatles took the gloves off and just said, Alright, we're gonna write this song, and good luck, because we're the only ones in the world and have a clue as to what this is all about. Because it's all about inside conversations that we've had in the studio while we've been making the record. So you will never figure it out. And we'll probably never tell you. And, you know, so I mean, know that they were they were the culprits. I mean, they were the ones. And, you know, many, many, many people followed suit. It was a style. I mean, it's not like I went down in history as a guy who wrote nonsensical, you know, sort of Lewis Lewis Carroll ish, kind of lyrics, I would have, I know that if I had another shot at it, I could, I could do a decent job of rewriting MacArthur Park. And, you know, I wouldn't have been so quick to throw it together, less surreal. I wrote it as a kind of a demonstration piece for bones house because he said, what could you do if you wanted to combine classical music and rock in a long piece that had movements? And I said, for the radio, he said, Yeah, you'd want to play it on the radio? I said, Well, I don't know. It's but it's a fascinating idea. And there's George Martin. And certainly, once one has heard yesterday, one knows that the musical world that the world has been tilted on its ear, and now anything is possible. I certainly did. I knew that once I heard what George Martin was doing with the Beatles, that all bets were off. That it that you could try anything. And so I so in a way, it was kind of a prototype. So I mean, in a way it was kind of an unfinished airplane. You know. I mean, I'm really being honest. It was sort of like an unfinished plane, but Richard grabbed it, and he said, I'll have that. And he was the type of man who wasn't going to wait for you to finish the plane. It was just going to be done now and recorded, done, sent out Pete Fornatale 1:20:04 unfinished or not it took off on its own. Jimmy Webb 1:20:07 And it just, you know, I had this weird life. I asked you earlier about goes on when you even as we speak, Pete Fornatale 1:20:16 even right here today, when you fling something like that out there and people get their hooks into it. Over the years have there been interpretations? I'm not talking about the Yankovic thing now, have there been interpretations that amused you or angered you? of that particular song? Jimmy Webb 1:20:37 No, I feel you know, there's no, there's no rules, that that's kind of what we were doing is saying, you know, and I felt, I feel that to not have a sense of humor about that song is to make would have been to make a grave error on my part, and to have protected it, like some sort of national treasure. You know, when it was really when it really did have flaws, and some of them we're kind of funny, somewhat, we're kind of comic in loves hot, fevered iron, like a stripe ID pair of pants, which I use in my in my book on songwriting as an example of mixing metaphors. And how does that whole line goes? Oh, it doesn't matter. I refuse to repeat it. I refuse to ever, you know, you can hear it if you want to. But I, I mean, I put it on a page with with some other absolutely horrific mixed metaphors as a classic example of what not to do. And, and I wasn't thinking about that. We were just kids. I think that and that's no excuse because Mozart was just a kid too. You don't tell me you're just a kid. You know, Mozart was just a kid. But we were just kids on drugs. We were just kids in California on drugs, having fun. And somehow or other some of these things got done. And they got out of hand they, you know, they took on epic proportions that were far beyond what they were ever intended to be. Pete Fornatale 1:22:44 And just to post scripts to the story. It did win a country Grammy, Jimmy Webb 1:22:50 Waylon Jennings recorded three times. Pete Fornatale 1:22:54 And one of those received those Jimmy Webb 1:22:58 And it was the song of the year, Pete Fornatale 1:22:59 and that elusive number one spot in the states happened with Donna Summer Jimmy Webb 1:23:04 Donna Summer cut a disco version. And we went number one. That was my only number one record ever in my career. Pete Fornatale 1:23:12 Is that right? Yeah. Wow. Jimmy Webb 1:23:15 And it made a great disco. Song too Pete Fornatale 1:23:18 how did you celebrate? I mean, something like that has to be truly a gift out of the sky. Jimmy Webb 1:23:24 It was pretty cool. i i Actually, I'll tell you what I did. I call it this friend of mine, Don G at Starlight limousine. And I said, Don, I said, I want you to come over and I want you to drive me today because I've got the number one record in the country. And he's any came over with a limo. And I just drove around all day in my limo. And I in my limo. I drove over to Harry Nielsen's house and said, I've got the number one record in the United States. I visited all my friends. gloated, I told him I had the number one record. You know, it's very funny, not number two. Pete Fornatale 1:24:11 You had mentioned earlier that there was a song that you had tailor made in your head for Waylon that he didn't Oh, that was If These Walls, right. You mentioned a number that were tailor made for Linda. Which one's specific? Jimmy Webb 1:24:29 Well the one the one that she that she got on first

POP MUSIC
INTERVIEW CONTINUES: Pete Fornatale 18:29 Pete Fornatale back with you on mixed bag radio. My guests today Derek Schulman and Kerry Minnear of gentle giant celebrating the 35th anniversary of the band. And the rerelease of a good deal of their recorded work. Does it's a cliche, but does the 35 year seem like the blink of an eye Howdy, howdy. How do you view it guys? Kerry Minnear 18:57 Well, I, I feel it's closer than some of the things that have happened since since I left the band. I've done several different things and Pete Fornatale 19:08 such as Kerry Minnear 19:09 well, I went, you know, Derek mentioned I had a Christian bent. And so not long after leaving the band, I went to Cornwall to help with an evangelist. So I was playing evangelist music. And, and then after that, I went to where I am now, and I'm a teacher. But because of the RE invention, if you like or the new interest in the band, and the fact that my wife Leslie is involved on the internet and dealing with various bits of strange material from the past of the band has kept that alive far more in my mind than the things that I've just mentioned. So in terms of time passing, in fact, being with Derek now is just as natural as you know. The first done. We've met almost except for the other week for 25 years, but it just feels like nothing's happened in between, you know, has quite obviously has as you look at us, but but no it to me, it doesn't seem a great, great length of time. Pete Fornatale 20:16 What's your take on that one Derek? Derek Shulman 20:20 It's a difficult that's a difficult question because I've, I've, I've lived in the US, since the group disbanded. And I've been involved in the music and the music business side. I've run some some major companies in the entertainment business music business. And, and in some respects, it seems like a whole different different age, a different life's life, a different, different experience entirely talking about experience. But as Kerry said, since we've been doing sort of a little bit of promotion and in, in speaking about this repertoire that we put together, it does seem like it was yesterday. Even though we look at the mirror, we realize it wasn't yesterday. But the one thing that as far as I was concerned is is it. It's interesting for me, because I kind of wanted that chapter and they still do is a chapter in our lives, that when you finish it, the chapter of the book that that chapter closes, and you open another one, Kerry went on to teach and I went on to be a record executive, whatever that means. But to reflect back, which we're doing to a degree now, but but we're still going forward. It's less threatening to me. As I get older, I guess so. did the time go very quickly. Absolutely. It feels like it feels like it was yesterday, since I saw carry on the road. And so this is a bore. What are we doing in Warren, Ohio, for God's sake. Do better. Again, we've lived 25 years since and our families have grown up and left home. And so it's a very, very strange phenomenon. Pete Fornatale 22:04 Well, you have no there are no plans here to record no plans to perform live again. Is this just sort of a way of putting the legacy in order? keeping it keeping it back there on the front burner? So to speak? Derek Shulman 22:19 Yeah, yeah. Kerry I mean, yeah, it really is. It's the fact that the catalog from those Capitol years reverted back to the group. And they were sitting on a shelf. And we thought, for a couple of reasons our kids have grown. And Kerry was teaching his kids experience and they've grown and my kids are saying, What did you do when you were when you were back then and I'm gonna show them videos, and they crack up, and they look for the records in the stores and they weren't there. So we figured, let's get them in the stores. So that's what we're doing. Pete Fornatale 22:50 You certainly have done that we are going to talk about gentle giant fans past and present in just a bit. But first, I want to take it all the way back to the beginning, Derek when three brothers got together in the psychedelic 60s, so to speak, and in some fashion decided that they were going to be rock and roll stars. Was that the ambition? Derek Shulman 23:13 Absolutely. It was absolutely the ambition and and thank God we were able to fulfill some part of the dream anyway, we made a living and and a livelihood in becoming musicians. And professionally it saved saved my butt from from, from getting getting a real job. Pete Fornatale 23:35 That's a blessing for all of us. Absolutely. You did taste a bit of success with the with your previous band. Yep. Which, you know, is remembered fondly on these shores as well. Simon Dupree and the big sound, you know, tell that story if you wouldn't mind Derek Shulman 23:54 Sure, I started the group with my brother. Again, my brothers had been in. They've lived that we've been together for forever. So with my younger brother Ray, and my older brother, Phil, we went on the road, we were working and leaving school, etc. And thankfully, we were able to land a contract with EMI, we did a couple of singles, we were getting quite popular as a live group. That's one thing that was very important to us because to, to entertain, and to be a good, very good live group. We were very much a soul and r&b group. Then, when we first started and this is in the mid 60s 6067, our manager at the time and we put two or three singles out, they were fairly successful, we're not sort of top 20 They made Top 40 Top 30. And our manager at the time said you guys are gonna get a hit record and I said yes, we do. But you know, what, what can we do? Well, he came to us with a song, which he received from my publisher called kites. And he played it to us and said, This is a demo from the US. I'd like to do to try this for the new single. And we just cracked up and we said Yeah, right. We're not going to do that because it was such such antithesis of what we played live, it was a totally total diversion from what the route was. In any case, we succumbed and we, we recorded the song. And some people EMI said this could be a song which could do quite well for us. We did okay, fine. Put it that was a single. It became a big, big hit singles. It was released in about two or three weeks later, it broken the top 10 hit top 10 in England, and it was kind of a millstone. It was a great achievement to a certain degree, but it became a millstone around our necks to it and Derek Shulman 24:39 you'd be surprised how often I hear that story. Todd Rundgren was speaking recently about Hello, it's me. All right. Similar, similar situation. Let's listen to a little bit of history if you don't mind. This is in fact Simon Dupree and the big sound with kites. That's kites the first taste of success for one of my guests today, Derek Shulman in his days with Simon Dupree in the big sand, did it change your lifeDerek? Derek Shulman 26:07 Um, as far as our financial situation was concerned, not really because we would become a fairly popular live group, we were doing very well, as far as famous concerned. Yeah, I was I would begin to pop star, which was kind of a strange thing for me personally, because I didn't look like a pop star. And I am. Because I'm here. It's kind of bulky, sort of hairy guy. And, but what it did was, as I said, Before, it was a millstone because we started playing venues which were more suited to be to two bands who are a pop group, and we weren't a pop group. And it started to make the band feel very stymied. Certainly, my sleep started to make me and my brothers for a very stymied, as far as our musical horizons were concerned, we were kind of bagged into this pop area. And I think, in a certain, to a certain degree, having that big hit was the kind of the start of the downfall of that first group. And thankfully, in certain respects, thankfully, it was the downfall and the birth of gentle giant, because it became something that we couldn't get away from. Pete Fornatale 27:19 You already had those bigger, musical ambitious ideas in your head in those days. Derek Shulman 27:25 Yeah, actually, we did if you if you if anyone cares to pick up an import of some of those crazy besides, and there's, I think EMI put out the every song we ever we ever wrote and recorded. There are some, we actually spent experimented a great deal we were very lucky, because we were able to experiment at Abbey Road where the Beatles they left their Mellotron there and we picked up the Mellotron and play with all their equipment. And, and we, me and my brothers enjoyed the idea of doing different things, not just doing pop songs for the sake of it. So we started experimenting then and we realized there was a lot more to, to musical existence than just having a song on the charts. Pete Fornatale 28:09 I addressed this question to both of you give me your best shot at describing what came to be known as progressive rock, Kerry Kerry Minnear 28:21 progressive rock overall, you mean involving us a difficult one. I can Derek Shulman 28:29 Give your view Because Kerry's got very, I think very Kerry Minnear 28:33 Yeah I find the majority of progressive rock to be quite pompous, and without heart. So I didn't enjoy much of it. I'll be honest. And I know we go into that and, but I always look for an emotive content, something that leaves you as you know, you've either been touched somewhere in your emotions, you know, on the lift, lifted, or made to cry or whatever. And if something is just a bit of head music to entertain me, I do tend to not listen to it very often, if at all. So for me, as an umbrella, progressive rock was not something I would have particularly gone out of my way to look for. But it's I suppose it's just the orchestral influences coming into and jazz coming into what was fairly stifled music was fairly simple music. Pete Fornatale 29:30 In your estimation, who were the pioneers who were on the front lines of this change in rock and roll Derek Shulman 29:41 for you, as far as as far as I was concerned, I mean, I wouldn't. It wouldn't have been I did. I remember hearing the first King Crimson record when I was in 73. And I thought, that's an interesting way to go. In the court of the Crimson King was was an interesting, that was a very interesting song. I quite liked that I have to admit. I mean, I'm, it's, you know, Kerry Minnear 30:07 it was the first one that I heard it's the first rock band I've ever heard Derek Shulman 30:10 that sort of ventured out into doing something a little more extreme to for me the more sort of like some like Frank Zappa hot rats was was an album which, which was a big, big influence. Something which combined jazz, something that combined different instrumentation, different sort of time signatures. Check Korea, the bands that were bagged, and I guess, in the Progressive Era era area weren't really influenced as far as I was concerned. Pete Fornatale 30:43 Well, you know, let's name the names you are lumped in for better or worse with Genesis Derek Shulman 30:51 Sure, Genesis. Yes. King Crimson ELP we, unfortunately, or fortunately, we all know them. And for the most part we like I mean, I liked them. And we are bagged in the into that world because we weren't a strict pop band or a band that that went for hit singles. I mean, we didn't we never had a hit single Much to my disgust disgust. But but the Genesis and yes, ultimately went on to become hit single bands. We never did. We never did. Pete Fornatale 31:24 And their music is still being played today, although you use the word pompous earlier carry and that, of course, was the brick, that punk rock and new wave threw in your direction. I mean, again, I'm saying that collectively lumped in, right under under that umbrella. And from your words, there was some justification for it. But you know, where do you draw the line between what was pompous and precious and overblown? And what was experimental and artistic? Dare I use the word, you know, worthy of a young audience's ears? Kerry Minnear 32:09 Yeah. Good one. I every one was judged for themselves each track, I guess. But I suppose it's when things become more than eight for the sake of being one eight or to display skill. Anything which is ostentatious tends to offend a little. Whereas something which is perhaps simple, highly emotive mean, harmony is so emotive isn't it? As it moves, you can it can involve you. And, or else it can be just a load of abstract cording just to impress you. And the two are very different. And for my money, I mean, a lot of people enjoy it. I'm sure the head music, I'd call it. And then there's the heart music. And that's I've always been a heart man. So it's not really fair to ask me because I've always been a heart, man. But there must be loads ahead. Music. That's fantastic. Pete Fornatale 33:03 Maybe the dividing line. I mean, this might be too black and white. But you know, there was some of that music that was soulless and corporate. And there was other that was heartfelt, and genuinely artistic. One of the bands who flirted in that area was nice to you. And I, from what I've read, you admire and became friendly with Ian Anderson. Jethro Tull true. Derek Shulman 33:32 Yeah, absolutely. There were there were fantastic with us. And the fact they were, they took us out on tour in both Europe and US. And to be honest, it had it not been for them taking a liking to new music in our band. I don't think we'd have even we probably would have broken through, but we were very, they were very helpful. And I was breaking through in Europe spent especially in Italy, and Germany, and subsequently to count in Canada and various other points and even some parts of the states. And they took us on the road for six months. I mean, you know, and they were very, very open and, and very, very nice to us. They really were and we admired them. Because even though some of them I actually quite liked their music at that time, I think it was it was quite interesting. It was folk it was, but it wasn't it wasn't pretentious. He's done. It was it was actually quite nicely simply put together, but very well done. But the stage show, and the way they presented it was it was second to none. And they weren't pretentious about it. They actually lived it and they didn't. They didn't fuel themselves. As far as I was concerned as as pompous, sort of over over the heads of musicians who could run rings or anyone else. They were part of Pete Fornatale 34:46 the theatrical but with the musical chops to back it up with absolutely no question about that. Just once again to put this in the context of This time there is a song on the free hand album that begins with a sound effect an electronic sound effect that to listeners of a certain age will be immediately will strike an immediate chord. And yet to younger listeners, they might say what? What is that? You know the one I'm talking about? Derek Shulman 35:21 Sure, I think you're talking about the song Time To Kill Yes. Which starts off with a sound effect of a game called Pong. Which was the first I think was the first video game ever. Yeah, I believe it was. Yes. Atari Atari Pong. Yeah. And I think we were so enamored by the game and the sound actually, of the video game that we've we decided to put it on in a glass house was I don't wash my mouth freehand. Pete Fornatale 35:52 You know that in a in a very strange way you were ahead of the curve on predicting how subsequent generations would be spending an awful lot, maybe even too much of their free time with time to kill on mixbag radio. Pete Fornatale 36:15 That's time to kill from the free hand album by Gentle Giant just rereleased. This is Pete Fornatale, I'll have more with members of the band. In just one minute. To down one to go. I flip flopped. We're going to do do just the same in this segment, and then close with freehand on the keyboard leading into the track. Alright, okay. Okay. Let me just see where we are. Derek Shulman 36:49 No know, just just as a brain transplant. Kerry Minnear 36:52 Yeah. Just the right words to express what you're trying to say. Derek Shulman 36:59 vocabularies got my head. No shit. Pete Fornatale 37:03 See, we've seen another phrase that scared me. Someone said no, they're not seeing your moments. They're rolling blackouts. Derek Shulman 37:12 Just No, I can't believe it. Especially for the word repertoire. Kerry Minnear 37:16 But can you put my foot in it as well? I keep saying things. If I was listening to this blog, I'd be really offended. Pete Fornatale 37:27 Yeah, oh, no, but actually, we're gonna get into you said you say younger faces. We're gonna get into what you think the reasons for that are? And also, I mean, this is a pithy point. But what I've noticed, you know, we've interviewed American guests, we've interviewed European guests, British guests. You guys have such an advantage with the accent because even when, even when you're a little shaky with what you're saying, it sounds right. Literally, from the from the, from the throne. Alright, let's go back to work. Oh, gosh.

Fans on crossing STORYLINE: Beatles fans mobbed London's Abbey Road on Saturday to mark the 40th anniversary of the famous photo that turned the ordinary street into a musical pilgrimage site. Abbey Road - in the St. John's Wood neighbourhood - is where the Fab Four recorded much of their work. It became a part of music history after the Beatles were featured on the cover of the eponymous album walking on the street's pedestrian crossing. Every day, fans from around the world travel to the zebra crossing to walk in the footsteps of John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Ringo Star and see the Abbey Road studios where they recorded most of their classics. But on Saturday, hundreds of fans swarmed to the site to mark the exact moment the photo was shot - at 1135 local time (1035 GMT). To the delight of the fans, the iconic Beatles moment was recreated by tribute band Sgt Pepper's Only Dartboard Band, who arrived in style in a replica of Lennon's "psychedelic" Rolls Royce. The celebration brought traffic to a complete standstill.
ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY:ENT3 YELLOW SUBTRAIN
TAPE_NUMBER: EN9936 IN_TIME: 11:18:16 LENGTH: 02:45 SOURCES: PA RESTRICTIONS: No re-use/re-sale of film/video clips without clearance, No access Internet FEED: SCRIPT: xfa YELLOW SUBMARINE GOES BENEATH THE WAVES Story: Yellow Submarine train Location: London Date: 8th September 1999 More than thirty years after the BEATLES first sung about a YELLOW SUBMARINE, the thing is finally getting under the waves for real. A 186 mph Channel Tunnel Eurostar train painted in images from the Beatles' film Yellow Submarine travelled from London's Waterloo Station to Paris today. The psychedelic train will travel on average three times a day between London, Paris and Brussels for the next three months The idea for repainting the train came along with the relaunch of the film on home video next week. A new Yellow Submarine soundtrack album, using remixed songs, and featuring all 15 Beatles tracks from the film is also being released next week. The Yellow Submarine film cost one million dollars to produce in 1968 and Roger McGough, one time member of the pop group The Scaffold was responsible for much of the Beatles dialogue. Although the Beatles made a brief appearance as themselves at the end of the film, for the rest of the film their voices were dubbed by actors. The newly coloured train was given a special sending off on its first voyage this morning.
