The Beatles, for some of us is just a name we heard, for some it’s pure good music and for the others like us, it is the reason we fell in love with music. The Rock Band known for its songs like ‘I wanna hold your hand’, ‘Here comes the sun’, ‘Oh Darling’,’Hey Jude’, ‘Blackbird’,’Let it be’ was way ahead of its time. They managed to win millions of hearts from the start and still continue to do so even after they separated ways a long time back.
Beatles with their last performance in the rooftop of Apple Corps left us thinking if we could ever catch a small glimpse of them together ever again or be lucky enough to see them get back again. Though they left that roof and never came back again, fans kept their love for the band alive and maybe this is the time that we all get rewarded for it.
A book featuring rare photographs of The Beatles clicked by Paul Saltzman, an award winning producer-director during the group’s visit to India is going to be in stores for us. The book is titled ‘The Beatles In India’ and is going to come in India next month. The book is the celebration of 50 years of the band’s visit to Maharishi Mahesh Yogi’s Ashram in Rishikesh. During their visit, they all learned transcendental meditation and wrote songs.
If you listen to Beatles a lot, you might have noticed George Harrison playing the sitar in some of the songs like ‘Norwegian Wood’,’Love You To’ and ‘Within You Without You’. This book describes how he learned playing sitar. It also describes the story of the making of Dear Prudence.Why is this book so special? Well… Only Saltzman was allowed to photograph ‘The Beatles’.
John Lennon, Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr and George Harrison had made this world a better place and they will always be remembered with respect and love.
