You might have heard about the documentary about the final years of The Beatles that was being done by Peter Jackson, and if you haven’t we’ve just solved that little problem for you on a brisk Monday afternoon haven’t we. Earlier, director Jackson offered up a sneak peek into the massive undertaking and its something you are really going to want to sit back and enjoy.
About The Film: “The Beatles: Get Back” is an upcoming documentary film directed by Peter Jackson that covers the making of the Beatles’ 1970 album “Let It Be”, which had the working title of “Get Back”. The film draws from material originally captured for director Michael Lindsay-Hogg’s 1970 documentary of the album. “The Beatles: Get Back” endeavours to recut Lindsay-Hogg’s film to show the friendly camaraderie that still existed between the Beatles, as well as to challenge longtime assertions that the project was entirely marked by ill-feeling.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: I don’t recall ever having seen the original “Let It Be” film and think that like most people out there only saw the few clips from up on the rooftops. This really looks like a must see film and I cannot wait to sit down and enjoy it in full and then eventually own a copy for my video library. What do you readers think about what you saw in the trailer, I mean “sneak peek” clip? Chime in down below in the comments and always remember that during this crazy pandemic time “All You Need Is Love”….see you next time.
Born on this day way back in 1942, the now legendary Sir Paul McCartney made his first-ever appearance to parents Mary and Jim. We wanted to take a quick moment to wish the musician a very Happy 76th Birthday. For some reason I missed doing a post like this on his 75th but hey, better late than never right? To say that his musical career has been a bountiful one would be an understatement with his being a founding member of The Beatles and eventually Wings along with maintaining a very prolific solo career and since we are just raising a glass in his honor today you can hit up the Official Wiki entry below. I suggest grabbing a cup of tea because there is a lot to read and you’re going to want to open Spotify or whatever you use to stream music since I anticipate some listening across the course of your discovery.
So the photo you see is on the terrible side but was shot with a mobile device from about 80 million feet away when he played at the then brand-new CitiField. A friend of mine had an extra ticket that he gave to me so who could pass something like that up and I think it was the second of a four night stint but I’d have to check the concert review that I posted since it was nine years ago. You can read that report too if your interested by clicking on THIS LINK. It was a very good time and loaded with hits. I owe my appreciation of both The Beatles and Wings to my family so thank you very much oh wise ones for steering me properly on some good music when I was really young. Happy Birthday Sir Paul, we wish you very many more.
