Everybodys Trying To Be My Baby

This is Hero. He was born in Korea in 2003, his name in Korean is Ha YoungWoong. YoungWoong (from Chinese) means "Hero" in English.

He began to sing by himself in 2005 and now he can sing about 40 Beatles songs and forty other old pop songs, even though he doesn't speak English and has never been to an English speaking country.



Hero learned all the songs by ear on his own, in two months he had learned all the songs on "Beatles 1." He has been dying to learn the guitar, but he's too short and weak to get a tight grip on it with his fingers.

Little child, little child, little child, won't you dance with me?

Fan pays tribute in music to Julian Lennon
[Posted by Dave Haber on Thursday, 12/18/08 8:06 pm] [Permalink] [Tweet] [Facebook]

On his new CD called That Lucky, Jimi Arthur has included a song in which he puts his own spin on a personal tribute to Julian Lennon and John.

Originally from Seattle, Jim now lives in Willow, Alaska. He says he fell in love with the Beatles as most did when they landed in the U.S. Of course, he begged his mom for his own guitar and began all those years ago. He's been into music for over 40 years and That Lucky is his first CD.


Jimi's partner in the music is even named Linda McCartney. She did the art work on the front cover and all the photos inside. Linda is also a rising artist and loves taking photos, like the more famous Linda.

A few of the other songs on the CD are Beatles-related as well. Jimi says he's also influenced by Jim Morrison of the Doors. Jimi said, "Half the battle I am having is that I am an unknown trying to breakthrough and isn't that how all the music began... with just one note."

You can find his CD and listen to samples of the tracks at CD Baby.

Film about Brian Epstein in the works
[Posted by Dave Haber on Monday, 12/15/08 7:17 am] [Permalink] [Tweet] [Facebook]

There are at least five "fifth" Beatles, Stuart Sutcliffe, who left in 1961, Pete Best, the drummer replaced by Ringo, Neil Aspinall, their long-time business manager, George Martin, their producer, and Brian Epstein, their equally famous manager.

Now a film about Brian Epstein, who died in 1967, is planned for next year, with a script by the Broadway producer Vivek Tiwary.


Don't expect too many shocks, though. Tiwary believes Epstein died of an accidental, not deliberate, overdose of drugs. He also does not hold to the rumour that he slept with John Lennon.

(From Richard Brooks' column in the Sunday Times.)

Here's another clue for you all
[Posted by Dave Haber on Friday, 12/12/08 7:03 pm] [Permalink] [Tweet] [Facebook]

In 1967, on the Magical Mystery Tour album, John Lennon said, "I am the walrus." The next year in 1968 on the White Album, John said, "Here's another clue for you all, the walrus was Paul."

Well, now we find out, the walrus was Sara!



Sara the Walrus delights in entertaining audiences with her saxophone skills at a Dolphinarium in Turkey. Grabbing the brass instrument in her flippers she 'plays' it jazz-style twisting from side to side during performances.

I understand that next, the Dolphinarian is planning a show in which penguins sing Hari Krishna.

Goo-goo-ga-joob!

Beatles fan club commemorates Amsterdam bed-in
[Posted by Dave Haber on Thursday, 12/11/08 6:25 pm] [Permalink] [Tweet] [Facebook]

On the 40th anniversary of John and Yoko's bed-in at the Hilton hotel in Amsterdam in March 2009, the Netherlands Beatles Fan Club will celebrate "From Holland with Love," a John Lennon Memorial which takes place on March 29, 2009, in the rooms of the Hilton hotel.

Beatles Tribute bands from the Netherlands and others countries will perform John Lennon songs. There will be an exhibition of John Lennon memorabilia, guest speakers, and John Lennon documentaries will be shown.


The Lennon Memorial Day is organised by the Netherlands Beatles Fan Club, in association with the Hilton Hotel and Har van Fulpen, who started with the Netherlands Beatles Fan Club in 1963, after he received written permission to run the club from the Beatles. He was present at Bed-in and wrote "Beatles Dagboek," a book which has been translated into English, French, Spanish, German and even Japanese.

The Netherlands Beatles Fan Club has been online on the internet since 1999. For more information about the Lennon Memorial, visit their site at www.beatlesfanclub.nl.
