It is not a unique observation to note that bandleader Duke Ellington and The Beatles shared some commonalities, creativity-wise. They were unclassifiable musically, and a great deal of what made their art magic came from the collaborative process, hardwired into their working method.

Murphy (Skyrocket!, Bottlerocket, Cotton Mather, My Ranger) is back for the second part of our look at John Lennon's rhythm guitar playing, particularly his use of the acoustic Jumbo Gibson J-160e.

This week we look at one of our favorite people in the Beatles' story—Linda McCartney. More than just Paul's wife, Linda was a photographer, mother, musician, chef, and entrepreneur.

When one does a search on John Lennon and his J-160e Gibson guitar, the first several pages of results are all about the "discovery" and subsequent sale of the instrument in 2016. However, the instrument was worth over $2 million dollars because of the songs John wrote using that guitar, and the records it can be heard on. Darin P. Murphy concl ...…
 
Part two of our look at the Fab Four as actors after the Beatles years. Ringo's career took him to many places in the 70's.

It was a new age: the young were going to rule the world—well, parts of it.
