Too funny, N4. Give me enough beers, and I'll yell, "Freebird!" at just about any bar band.
Thanks, Sugar. Writing this definitely was a labor of love. Have a great weekend.
Oh my gosh, this blog is packed with SO many Beatles references, my heart leaps with joy! A real labor of "love", Chris!
Music certainly does have curative properties, and I am certain your time spent with your brother has not only lifted his and your spirits, but boosted his immune system as well.
I also own Beatles' "Let it Be - Naked" and am astounded at how simply beautiful it all is. It needed NO additional fluff, but of course Spector was afraid to let fans realize that from the get-go.
Enjoy the beautiful tunes, Chris, and my best wishes for your brother's improving health.
Thanks, everyone, for stopping by. Rebecca, I agree music is wonderful medicine. I sure hope so in this case.
I loved the Beatles as a kid! Those were the albums I played on my fold-up portable record player. (And Tubby the Tuba shhhhhhh) Remember those? They were plastic and you could carry them around like a suit case. (70s?)
When I was in the hospital, I watched stand up comedy because I had read somewhere that laughter, being happy, would help with healing. Maybe great music can help too. (I was car-wreck, not cancer.)
Yes, The Beatles were great and the Cirque show is very good. But , then came The Eagles. They're the ones whose song Hotel California was playing when God created the first sunrise.
Spector completely ruined such a beautifully simplistic song - Across the Universe and that's why, with The Beatles later works, seeking out the demo takes and alternative versions became essential.
An excellent blog, I will have to make the trip to Vegas to see the show.
