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!

Birthday

It's my birthday today, but in Beatles history this is the birthday of one Stuart Sutcliffe, who used to be the Beatles' bass guitarist back when they started their careers in show business. Stuart was the oldest Beatle back then, as he would have turned 70 today. As we all know, he didn't even live to turn 22. Time to ponder: Would the world as we know it have been any different if Stuart had survived? There are a couple of well known portraits of Stuart in his artist's loft at the Kirschherr house in Hamburg. John Lennon persuaded Astrid to take his photo at the same spot after Stuart's death as a tribute to the deceased Beatle. Beatles historian Mark Lewisohn revisited the loft in 2006, and has kindly shared his photos on the Kenwood blog. Take a couple of minutes of your time and have a look.
