UPDATED – Big Beatles Anniversary Coming Up!

In July it will be 60 years since the fateful day that John Lennon and Paul McCartney first met and set the wheels in motion that would change musical history forever.

The moment happened at St Peter’s Church Hall in Woolton village and six decades on the church is celebrating the event and the magic of community with events running from July 6th through to the 9th.

Events are just being announced, and I know there’s plenty more to come as time goes on.  You can keep up to date via the website at www.beatlesatstpeters.co.uk and at the facebook page set up for the event.

Additional Information – Things are shaping up nicely for this event and the news page on the site now has information about some of the stuff that’s happening including an special appearance by past Beatle Week favourites The Prellies, fab new Beatle band The Babyfaced Beatles and details of the Cavern City Tours event on the Thursday of the epic celebration weekend.

A Farewell To SisterBluebird

If anyone is still using the sisterbluebird.co.uk URL to get to this blog you need to update your bookmarks by July when the URL ceases to be mine. It will be up for grabs at whatever the going rate is then.
The old blogger version of this blog will also disappear very soon. I think I have a few more posts to import over here to keep for old times sake, but after that I’ll be taking the blogger site down.
I’m liking this version of the blog a lot and it means I’m finally using webspace that I’ve been paying for all these years and not using to the fullest!

Deeply saddened at the passing of John Wetton. Loved getting a chance to see him with Asia. Thoughts today are with his family, friends and fans.

Celebrate Macca’s 75th Birthday in Liverpool

Jackie Spencer, Beatle Guide extraordinaire, is doing a special Paul McCartney birthday tour this June. In the past I’ve done both Paul and George days organised by Jackie and they are so much fun. The individual tour days are far more in depth than regular tours and Jackie loves to add little unusual touches and surprises on the way too.

Follow the link here to check out the details of the Paul McCartney Day and stay tuned to her website as I believe there’s a George day in the works too.

The current scene outside the Cavern Walks building on Mathew Street in Liverpool as they prepare a statue of Cilla Black ready for its unveiling on Monday.  As you can see they are keeping it under wraps for now. 

The statue is just a short way down the street from the Cavern Club. Of course, Cilla famous worked in the cloakroom of the original club before finding fame as a singer.

Over the festive period the new broke that TeamRock was going in administration and that Metal Hammer, Classic Rock and Prog magazines were shutting up shop because of it. Sad news as my experience (via social media) of those involved showed a passion for their subjects rather than it just being a job.  Anyway, for any Prog fans on facebook there is a group to show support for the magazine in the hopes of aiding a rescue of the title.

Click here to go there. 

Oh, and if you see a copy of Prog issue 72 about there’s a fine and rare interview with Vangelis in there and there is due to be a final issue hitting the shelves too.

UPDATE – Future Publishing has acquired the rights to the Team rocket properties and the magazines will be continuing.
