A California auction house claims to have the only recording of a Beatles news conference dating back 44 years, but another copy exists in North Texas.

In response to a question from Larry Roberts, John Lennon addressed his controversial comment about the Beatles being bigger than Jesus for the first time.

It was at the height of Beatlemania, and Roberts, a radio reporter, was in the thick of it.

"Girls screaming, girls fainting, people throwing...

This 114 minute DVD declares “rare footage, original rare film and videos of the band, newsreels and photographs from private collections.” The unleashing of these interviews and commentaries are always welcome, more fun than hearing “Imagine” played on Classic Rock radio time and again, and Wienerworld/MVD Visual do a fine job of compiling it all in a very charming package sporting a young Lennon with shirt and tie in a black and white photo.

Paul McCartney: "It's the people in the middle, the record label. There've been all sorts of reasons why they don't want to do it"

He's one of the biggest rock stars in the world, and it's one of the biggest music sellers in the world.

But despite years of negotiations Sir Paul McCartney and iTunes still haven't done a deal to make Beatles' tracks available to download.

The official one sheet poster for ‘Nowhere Boy’ has been revealed.

Boston (DbTechNo) - It is being reported that although The Beatles: Rock Band sold more than 595,000 units in September, analysts are questioning its staying power.

The game is made by Viacom Inc who hoped that it would dominate video game sales, a fact that has just not happened.

Sales better pick up however, as Viacom have promised $10 million to all the various rights holders whose permission was needed before the game could be created.

What if The Beatles hadn’t broken up in 1970? What if peace broke out after the harmonious recording of Abbey Road, John and Paul discovered common ground in discussing life as newly weds, the success of ’Something’ shifted the chip from George’s shoulder, Ringo decided being drummer in the best band in the world was better than providing voice-overs for Thomas The Tank Engine and even Yoko and Linda became friends, collaborating on a book of vegetarian recipes told...

The received wisdom is that there are but two surviving Beatles: Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr. Absent from the celebration of the release of the Fab Four's remastered albums and the Beatles: Rock Band video game is original drummer Pete Best, the only other person on the planet who can rightfully call himself a Beatle.



With his moody good looks marking him as the heartthrob of the early Beatles, Best was behind the drum...

Many bands traveled over 7,000 miles from South America to attend the Liverpool Beatles Festival this weekend and brought with them incredible energy and rocking beat that drove audiences wild last night.

The Greets, a band from Cordoba, Argentina, went wild on stage jumping, clapping, and getting the audience to sing along when they performed at the back stage in the Cavern Club. They played a wide range of songs from All My Loving to A Day in the Life with improvised and exciting sound effects and Eleanor Rigby to Revolution.

What sheer joy it is to be listening to great Beatles classics with thousands of people in the streets of Liverpool where the audience participates in the closing verses of Hey Jude by everyone clapping with arms raised overhead. The audience was a mixed crowd of young people, children, parents and older fans.

Compared to his previous marriages with Linda Eastman and Heather Mills, Sir Paul Cartney's courtship with girlfriend Nancy Shevell has been relatively low-key.

At the start of the Swinging Sixties, Liverpool was a remarkable place, about to take the world by storm. Mersey Beat was born. A global revolution, based on a thriving Liverpool scene would change rock music and fashion forever, dominate the music charts at home and overseas, and influence generations of musicians to come.

Bigger Than The Beatles, written by highly-respected Mersey Beat author Bill Harry, is a fascinating and entertaining insight into the cultural phenomenon that was Merseyside in the 1960s, featuring rare and excusive pictures from the archives.

Buried in the middle of a nearly 9,000 world article in the New York Times is the revelation that seminal Beatles albums Rubber Soul and Sergeant Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band will join Abbey Road as downloadable content for The Beatles: Rock Band game set to be released on September 9th. The albums will be available some time after the game's release. I hope that, eventually, the entire Beatles catalog will be out on...

Forty years ago on Saturday, one of the pop world's most infamous and imitated album covers was shot in a little side street in north London.

The idea for the cover of the Beatles' Abbey Road album was initially to call it Everest, after the favourite brand of cigarettes smoked by their engineer Geoff Emerik. Then the thought of doing a Himalayan cover helped kill the idea, and instead they considered doing shoot closer to home.

On the list of anticipated music videogames for 2009, one title towers heads 'n shoulders above all others, and they name be The Beatles: Rock Band. Not that most of us haven't heard, absorbed, and had the Fab Four's music fused into our DNA, but in the right hands their legacy and filmography should lend themselves to some of the most wild and creative interactive scenery yet. Most would agree that Harmonix possesses those right hands, and come September 9th (or just9/9/09 for your...

The black and white images were taken when the Fab Four were at the Askers Road House Hotel in Bridport, Dorset. They show John Lennon playing with a Box Brownie camera and him and the other band members in a car.



The hotel owner was also pictured with the stars and she later gave the photographs to her friend. It is her daughter who is now putting them up for auction.

They were taken in the mid-60s - possibly in 1966 when the...

Photographer Ian Macmillan, who died in 2006, recalled that he had spent only 10 minutes up a stepladder snatching a handful of pictures of the band.

That unforgettable image of John, Paul, George and Ringo crossing a north London street is still inspiring artists to follow in their famous footsteps. Paul Bignell reports

The Beatles arrived in America at Kennedy Airport on February 7, 1964, and performed for the first time on American TV on Sunday, Feb. 9. The show was viewed by over 73 million Americans. But it was not their first appearance on TV in America. And that appearance on Ed Sullivan might not have happened the way it did, without the help of another man, Walter Cronkite.
