Move over, Ms L!

Hi all, wondering why you are looking at this jumbled up page? This is due to the fact that Facebook didn't like our url since it starts with wog, so we have been forced to move the blog. This was some time ago, and we have placed a script which would automatically send you to our new location. Obviously, this hasn't worked for all of you, since we have just finished moderating some of your comments which appeared on this site recently, and not on our new (and improved!) site. So what we're saying is head on over to our new site, and update your bookmarks!

Logo change

Top: Rehearsal
Bottom: Performance
May 12th, 1963: The Beatles appear on "Thank Your Lucky Stars" and show off their new logo! In the first photo, Lennon is wearing glasses at rehearsal, and Ringo's bass drum is still sporting the "beetle" Beatles logo. In the second one from the actual broadcast, new drums with the brand new "dropped T" logo, as designed by Ivor Arbiter.

The first Beatles "Beetle" logo
 The old "beetle" Beatles logo kept it going, though. It was used quite a bit for their French releases (where they swapped the "the" for a "les"), and it was also featured a lot in the "Beatles Monthly Book" fan club magazine.

The drum kit is a different one as well.

Wow. Great find. Very cool to see the actual transition.
