If you've seen any of the 23 James Bond movies, you're familiar with British trumpet player Derek Watkins. The session player also sat in with Eric Clapton, the Beatles, Elton John and more during a nearly 50-year career. Watkins died on Friday (March 22) after a two year battle with cancer.
How many Beatles songs can be mashed-up in a one-minute span? That's the question posed by musician Chad Neidt in a new video that features him and a beatboxing friend running through the group's catalog at breakneck speed.
Ever since the Beatles' split in 1970, Yoko Ono has been, quite unfairly, assigned a good deal of the blame. However, a long-lost interview from 1987 finds John Lennon's widow telling the real reasons for their breakup.
While the Rolling Stones have spent much of 2012 promoting their intentions to honor their 50th anniversary next year, the Beatles have allowed theirs to mostly fly under the radar. Until now, that is.
The Granny Smith apple that has served as the logo for the Beatles' record label is now the property of the Apple computer company. Yesterday (Oct. 25), Patently Apple discovered that the last remaining challenge to the logo's ownership had been cleared and it now belonged to the computer giant.
A rare or limited pressing of a record can draw a pretty penny, and if it's a major rock band the price can really go through the roof. As you might expect, the Beatles dominate Record Collector's new list of the most expensive records in the world. But what might surprise you is that the Sex Pistols also turn up several times in the Top 10.
For many years, there has been much speculation that John Lennon's wife, Yoko Ono, influenced the Beatles breakup, but Paul McCartney says that it's not true and that the band was splitting regardless of Ono.
One of the great myths in rock history is the rivalry between the Rolling Stones and the Beatles. In fact, despite their sonic differences, the groups were good friends and often timed their releases so that they wouldn't coincide with each other.
One of the longest-standing marks in U.S. pop history has been equalled. British folk-rock act Mumford and Sons have placed six songs on Billboard's Hot 100 chart at the same time. No group has achieved that feat since the Beatles did it the week of Sept. 19, 1964.
