- yes: Skedj goes to 14th Sept.: three more Fridays.
Avatar Fri. 8/21/15 7:09pm Rich in Washington:

I think the recent OTE shows have been marvelous - sort of slowly, organically turning into something it wasn't - while retaining some of what it was. I hope it keeps on going, even if it's changing.

  Fri. 8/21/15 7:21pm vince:

this is cute
Avatar    Fri. 8/21/15 7:21pm Webhamster Henry:

George explicitly said he based Because on the Moonlight Sonata backward.
Avatar    Fri. 8/21/15 7:22pm People Like Us:

John said Yoko played an arrangement based on the chords on the piano for him, so it is a variation
  Fri. 8/21/15 7:23pm Phil:

Beautiful noises to finish my work week by!

Glad everyone else has left, so I can enjoy the show in all its magnificent splendor - and full volume!
  Fri. 8/21/15 7:23pm vince:

He played on guitar on the "Wedding Album",,John did.
Avatar    Fri. 8/21/15 7:25pm People Like Us:

if anyone knows of any recorded interview with John that states the Moonlight Sonata/Because thing let me know - I don't mean in print, I mean an audio recording
  Fri. 8/21/15 7:26pm vince:

Hmmmm.. possibly, the '80 Playboy interview... If memory serves, he covers alot of Beatle songs in that interview
Avatar Fri. 8/21/15 7:30pm Rich in Washington:

I'm still trying to find a higher quality version of the interview where he explains Revolution #9. He talks about tape loops and it's really meta-heavy content-wise as a sample source.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 8/21/15 7:31pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

- yeah, John went over several songs one by one in those - so maybe. & they were available for Download here: www1.rollingstone.com... ...buuut not anymore...
Avatar    Fri. 8/21/15 7:31pm People Like Us:

would like to hear that
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 8/21/15 7:32pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...pretty sure I put those on a hardrive before Rolling Stone took them down...

..oh wait: RS interviews probly different...
  Fri. 8/21/15 7:33pm vince:

Might I suggest the great 'guest-DJ' set he did in 1974 on WNEW.. he was quite good at figuring out where certain 'riffs' came from..plus, he was funny
Avatar Fri. 8/21/15 7:34pm Rich in Washington:

I got mine from a cassette about hidden messages in rock music but the quality isn't too good. To make matters worse, I digitized it in the late 90s, not really knowing what I was doing then, so it's less than stellar, digitally.

Avatar Fri. 8/21/15 7:40pm Tome:

quite right !
Avatar    Fri. 8/21/15 7:40pm Webhamster Henry:

Kenny's Baseball Games are also soothing , but lack the quieter stretches found in real games - which are usually filled with short ads.
  Fri. 8/21/15 7:40pm vince:

Yeah.... perhaps on the first show of the season.. there was a link in the comments
Avatar    Fri. 8/21/15 7:41pm People Like Us:
