The notorious Roger Friedman attended the launch party for the new Photograph book by Ringo from Genesis Publications and had some big news to pass along.
Ringo Starr confirmed for Friedman that The Beatles will likely be celebrated twice, once during the Grammy® Awards, and then again the next night. The plan right now is for a special Beatles segment during the Grammies® on January 26th to commemorate the 50th anniversary of their arrival in America on February 7. 1964.
On January 27, the Monday night after the Grammies®, there will be a special Beatles show in Los Angeles at the Convention Center.
Right now it’s supposed to entail a lot of different acts playing Beatles songs.
