The Beatles: Eight Days a Week – The Touring Years

Fun! Fun! Fun! Yeah! Yeah! Yeah! This documentary from Ron Howard looks at the touring years of the greatest musical group the world has ever known. Okay, that’s just my considered opinion, but if you’re a Beatles fan, this is a must see flick. The film combines archival footage and interviews that take you inside the Beatles’ world during their early years on the road, which only lasted from 1963-66. But during that time they performed 250 concerts and went from obscurity to legend!

Who Is Harry Nilsson (And Why Is Everybody Talkin’ About Him?)

I remember really liking Harry Nilsson back in the day and even buying a couple of his albums, including the wonderful Nilsson Schmilsson. But I didn’t really grasp his mark on the music world until I saw the documentary Who Is Harry Nilsson (And Why Is Everybody Talkin’ About Him?) I was unaware that the Beatles were his biggest fans and very close friends with him, or that those “lost months” John Lennon spent in LA were in part a long crazy bender with his BFF Harry.
