    Ringo Starr (Beatles Chapter 8): Busted by Mexican Federales, Threatened by French-Canadian Separatists, and the King of Feel

    Ringo Starr (Beatles Chapter 8): Busted by Mexican Federales, Threatened by French-Canadian Separatists, and the King of Feel

    Ringo Starr’s first show as the Beatles’ new drummer was nearly ruined by a hostile audience that wanted him out of the band. Although he was finally accepted as one of the Fab Four, he was still targeted by those who did not wish him well. French-Canadian separatists in Montreal threatened to kill him. Mexican Federales tried to lock him up and throw away the key. And a decades-long running gag that he wasn’t creatively on par with his fellow Liverpool lads nearly undermined his legacy. It wasn’t until Ringo conquered his own beaucoups of blues that he got the respect he deserved and the world recognized him for what he is: in the words of his old mate John, “the greatest.”

    Jennifer Hudson: An American Idol, a Triple Homicide, and Undying Faith

    Jennifer Hudson shocked her hometown of Chicago when she was eliminated from American Idol in 2004, only to surpass everyone’s expectations when she later raked in awards and rave reviews for her role in Dreamgirls. Yet grief washed over Chicago again when her mother and brother were found slain in their Englewood home, and the smallest member of the Hudson family was declared missing. Their tragic story begins with betrayal and ends with a heartbreak so severe, only Jennifer’s long-standing faith could put it back together.

    The Sex Pistols (Pt. 2): Crashing the Queen’s Jubilee, Shocking America, and Leaving a Trail of Blood, Spit, and Junk

    The Sex Pistols (Pt. 2): Crashing the Queen’s Jubilee, Shocking America, and Leaving a Trail of Blood, Spit, and Junk

    In 1977, the world’s most controversial band didn’t stop when they were dropped by their major label only months after they were signed. John Lydon, Steve Jones, and the Sex Pistols continued their feud with the corporate music world, the English monarchy, and a horrified public. It was a struggle made all the more difficult by the introduction of the group’s most volatile member, a junkie who was barely clean–or competent enough–to find his way around four strings. The band’s grand plan to conquer America royally backfired and ultimately led to an explosive and bloody downfall. To paraphrase Neil Young, "this is the story of a Johnny Rotten," but it’s also a story about how great music can shock, scandalize, and galvanize the world. 




    This episode contains themes that may be disturbing to some listeners and includes descriptions of self-harm.

One of my faves

This is one of my favorite podcasts that I love to listen to while making the workday pass expeditiously. It truly shows the darker side of the lights and glamour of Hollywood. The ear cheese at the beginning of each episode is..chef’s kiss

Chellgo ,

The scandal is amazing

This show is a new favorite of mine.

Alright

It’s pretty good, but there’s only a few episodes here. Could use more info in these, too.
