The world owes Yoko an apology! 10 things we learned from The Beatles: Get Back

Peter Jackson’s eight-hour documentary on the Fab Four reveals Ringo is an amazing drummer, McCartney was a joy and their entourage were coolest of allThe concept for Let It Be was: no concept. The Beatles arrived in an empty studio and wondered where the equipment was. (And revealed that they knew very little about setting up PA systems.) What were they rehearsing for? A show on the QE2? A concert on Primrose Hill? A TV special in Libya? A film? What would the set look like? Would it be made of...

The Length Of Peter Jackson's The Beatles: Get Back Is Kind Of The Point

While Peter Jackson's deep dive into the creative process of The Beatles has been getting mostly rave reviews there has been some pushback on its long runtime. "Get Back" was intended to be a long feature and then during the Covid lockdown the decision was made to release it as a limited series on Disney+.The thing is three parts, each one well over two hours each — and the eight-hour length of the full docu-series has been a sticking point for some critics, including our own Josh Spiegel.Jokes ...

The Beatles: Get Back Review: A Shapeless Documentary With A Fantastic Ending

The new 8-hour, 3-part docuseries "The Beatles: Get Back," branded as a Disney+ Original and hailing from blockbuster filmmaker Peter Jackson, raises two unavoidable and unfortunately unanswerable questions. First, why is this 8 hours long? And second, why is this on Disney+? The latter question, no less a head-scratcher than the first, at least does not pose as a commentary on the content of "The Beatles: Get Back." But for a streaming service that is awfully shy about presenting some of its ow...

Solar Eclipse in Sagittarius: Big Stories, Small Moments

A s decades are heaped upon our lifespans, we gradually edit down our memories into a solid narrative. Our personal history becomes like a film we’ve seen so many times, we no longer know which parts are real and which are imagined. That sums up this week’s Sagittarius Solar Eclipse (Dec. 3. 2021, 11:38 pm PST), square Neptune, rather well, I think: The big picture is captured on grainy film stock and projected onto a large screen, and it’s hard to see the details. How must it be for the peopl...

Peter Jackson’s Mammoth Beatles Documentary Is A Feast For Fans

There is already a movie about the Beatles making Let It Be. It is called Let It Be. Throughout January 1969, a crew led by director Michael Lindsay-Hogg — who had helmed the Beatles’ music videos for “Paperback Writer,” “Rain,” “Hey Jude,” and “Revolution” among other work at the center of 1960s rock — filmed the Fab Four rehearsing, recording, and ultimately giving their final public performance on the roof of their Apple Corps. headquarters in London. The Let It Be movie famously depicts a ba...

The Mystery of Who Played Bass on The White Album’s “While My Guitar Gently Weeps”

George Harrison, the quiet Beatle, was the first to break out on his own in 1970 with his glorious triple album All Things Must Pass. “Garbo talks! — Harrison is free!” wrote Melody Maker’s Richard Williams in a review, a reference to the reclusive silent film star who, like the Beatles’ guitarist, kept her mystique and star power even after fans first heard her voice. Harrison’s revelation couldn’t have been as dramatic as all that. Surely, no fan of “Taxman,” “Within You Without You,” ...

A Guitarist Rocks Out on Guitars Made from Shovels, Cigar Boxes, Oil Cans & Whisky Barrels

When Keith Richards felt he’d gone as far as he could go with the six-string guitar, he took one string off and played five, a trick he learned from Ry Cooder. These days, the trend is to go in the opposite direction, up to seven or eight strings for highly technical progressive metal compositions and downtuned “djent.” Traditionalists may balk at this. A five-string, after all, is a modification easily accomplished with a pair of wire-cutters. But oddly shaped eight-string guitars seem ...

John Harris, who was involved in the project, tells the inside storyOn paper, the idea looked brilliant. In the opening weeks of January 1969, the Beatles were working up new songs for a televised concert, and being filmed as they did so. Where the event would take place was unclear – but as rehearsals at Twickenham film studios went on, one of their associates came up with t...

Good Lord Does Dan + Shay’s Country Music Remind Me Of Christian Pop

The first time I heard Dan + Shay, I was certain I was hearing contemporary Christian music. It was the spring of 2018. I had been “hiking” with my wife and kids at a state park in Illinois. (I use airquotes because when you’re with two children under three, it’s more like short-form stop-start meandering.) Afterwards, I found myself in the gift shop, where I heard an adult contemporary ballad that set soft tenor vocals against even softer piano chords bathed in faint angelic light. The song tra...

How West Magazine Created a Southern-California Pop-Culture Aesthetic with the Help of Milton Glaser, Gahan Wilson, and Others (1967-1972)

In the late 1960s, a counterculture-minded media professional could surely have imagined more appealing places to work than the Los Angeles Times. Widely derided as the official organ of the Southern California Babbitt, the paper also put out a bland Sunday supplement called West magazine. But West had the potential to evolve into something more vital — or so seemed to think its editor, Jim Bellows. The creator of “the original New York magazine in the early 1960s,” writes Design Observer’s Ste...
