3,2,1 Whine

A fun and knowledgeable podcast about The Beatles. The one I just listened to was about the recent special 3,2,1 McCartney. It was interesting and makes me want to rewatch it again. It was a bit redundant whining about McCartney’s canned responses. Seriously, the guy(Paul) has been answering much the same questions since the 60’s, you’d get repetitive too. Secondly there are alway new Beatle fans every year and not everyone is a born Beatle expert with every Mark Lewisohn book memorized. What may seem repetitive to one person is new information to someone just discovering the Fab Four. It was the only reason I gave it 4/5. A fun podcast otherwise.

Great Show, Beatles knowledge is good

I grew up at a really great age, 12, when The Beatles hit. I can play all of their songs on guitar and they were great teachers for song structure, lyrics, and learning guitar by ear. Recently I listened to Mitch solo and his guest was talking about The Beatles solo years and of course, John and Paul were the main subject, with Richy and George on the back burner.
I loved John and Paul’s talent but George really surprised me after the split. Lennons voice was waning even then and after Flaming Pie, Paul was not something I’d buy blindly.
George however musically and emotionally blossomed.
I was surprised at the lack of attention to George. Nothing said about the Traveling Wilburys,( basically George’s idea, his molding of Badfinger, how his sound permeated Badge, and why Badfinger sounded like The Beatles. Badge, ( his work with Eric Clapton, has George’s soundscape, he was shaping a lot of Richy’s solo stuff, his work with Jeff Lynne,( which also started Tom Petty’s collaboration and friendship which brought Petty to Mo Ostin(sp?)).
It was George who was the third songwriter in The Beatles and his contribution to the intro to And I Love Her, and countless others. The Let It Be,(whatever) conversation with John and Paul in Abbey Roads canteen about George’s maturation as a songwriter.
I may be mistaken but I think George had the last hit with traditional radio, and he was so important to The Beatles. None of this was mentioned. There’s more, but this is running long. Still one of the best Beatles podcasts out there. Mitch did have a lot of great points during the podcast btw, I’m fascinated by the story of this very special band. One more thing, (lol), nothing mentioned about their amazing work ethic, partially due to ego, partially due to Prelly’s, then jazz cigarettes, and finally just plain talent. Favorite album/song? What day is it? Changes all the time. Great work fellas!!!
