In The Lap of a Luxurious
Beatle Brunch Cruise


2009 marks the 45th anniversary of The Beatles coming to America. And what a better way to celebrate than with a top-notch, luxury cruise by Silversea with Joe Johnson for a Beatle Brunch voyage August 26, 2009 to September 5th on board The Silver Cloud.

We hope to see our fans take advantage of an extraordinary, all inclusive cruise from London and traveling throughout the British Isles for 10 days. The intimate and elegant ship, Silver Cloud has limited availability accommodating only 296 guests. The up-scale, European service is exceptional. The suites are spacious … all with ocean views and most with private verandas. There are 3 gourmet open seating restaurants with some of the finest chefs known to mankind. Complimentary fine wines, champagne and spirits abound. Each guest will receive $500.00 ($1,000.00 per suite) on-board credits to spend in the shoppes, shore excursions or in the spa. Must we mention the excellent on-board entertainment? All transportation and transfers are included … why, the airfare from select Eastern US cities is included (see the list of 25 FREE East Zone Cities + others with small fees) ... as if that weren’t enough, the fare includes all on-board gratuities! Visit www.silversea.com for more information.

Silversea Cruises is recognized as an innovator in the luxury segment, offering guests large-ship amenities aboard its intimate, all-suite vessels: Silver Cloud, Silver Wind, Silver Shadow, Silver Whisper -- and launching in December 2009, Silver Spirit -- all designed to offer an atmosphere of conviviality and casual elegance. With the addition of the regal expedition ship Prince Albert II, the company's itineraries encompass all seven continents.
In the U.S., Silversea has been voted "World's Best" by the readers of Condé Nast Traveler (nine times) and Travel + Leisure (seven times), and rated Number-One luxury cruise line by high-net-worth consumers in the 2008 Luxury Brand Status Index (LBSI). International awards include "World's Leading Luxury Cruise Line" from World Travel Awards (2007) ; "Five Star Diamond Award" from the American Academy of Hospitality Sciences (2009); "Number One" small-ship line in the Readers' Choice" survey conducted by Britain's Condé Nast Traveller magazine (2007); "Best Luxury Cruise Line" by Spain's Cruceros & Destinos magazine (2008); "Best Luxury Cruise Line" by Australia's Luxury Travel & Style Magazine (2009); and "Best Luxury Cruise Operator" according to Asia's Travel Weekly (2008).

It Was 40 Years Ago Today
Two Perfect Pairs
On a recent Beatle Brunch program, we featured Fab Four Flip Sides, B sides, or perfect pairs if you will. Well, this week back in 1969 two perfect pairs were joined in matrimony: Paul McCartney & Linda Eastman and John Lennon & Yoko Ono.

Paul and Linda met while she was on assignment photographing the Rolling Stones in London 1967. Linda Eastman (no relation to the Eastman Kodak family) met The Beatles around about the time of the release of Sgt. Pepper’s, and soon began a long distance relationship, commuting from the US to London, with Paul. They were married March 12th, 1969 at the Marylebone Register office in London with Paul’s brother Michael and their dog at their side. They remained married until Linda’s passing in April 1998, having spent nearly every night of their married lives together. They even toured as a band on the run family with wings, so they would never have to leave their four kids behind.


The other perfect pair were John & Yoko. They met while Yoko was in London in 1966 for an art symposium. She was showing her art at the Indica Gallery and John was showing interest in her. They dated secretly, before finally coming clean at the premiere of Yellow Submarine in late 1968. John & Yoko were married on the Rock of Gibralter, because of difficulties with their passports, March 20th, 1969. To this day, Yoko continues John’s legacy with the careful monitoriing of his music library and the protection of his legend through various charities and organizations. Their Double Fantasy album, contained 14 songs which alternated between John’s tracks and Yoko’s, was an instant hit, and Yoko said years later, that she and John had talked of a tour, where he would come out on one knee and sing, I Want To Hold Your Hand to her in a loving gesture. Sadly, we never got to see that day, but the memories of these two perfect pairs stand as an inspiration to couples Here, There and Everywhere.
 

Some Upcoming Beatles Snacks
On The Brunch!

We hope you enjoyed our Fab Four Flip Sides show this past weekend. It’s always nice to flip the pillow over to the cool side after heating up the front for so long. That’s exactly what deejays in the 60’s did. When a new Beatles single was wearing out, or they just wanted new material, they’d flip over to the B side for songs like This Boy, I’ll Get You and I Saw Her Standing There. And as we flip the calendar over again this week, we’ve got a nice selection of up and coming Beatle Brunch programs.

The Beatles In India: In the spring of 1968, the boys went to Rishikesh to study with the Maharishi Mahesh yogi. Much to our pleasure, they returned with 40 new songs, many of which ended up on the white album.

Please Please Me: Ne’er has a more productive 10 hours of studio work been done, than what was accomplished on February 11th, 1963. The Beatles recorded 10 songs for their upcoming 14 song album in less than a day. Five weeks later it was in the stores and the boys were well on their way to Fabdom. It’s the songs and stories of the Please Please Me LP.

We’re Number One! The Beatles shouted that from the mountain top 20 times in their career. We’ll take you to the toppermost of the poppermost once again for Beatle Number Ones, including their domination of the top 5 on the chart.

Requests From The Fest: Join me in the Meadowlands for the 35th Annual Beatles Festival in the New York metro area. I’ll be hosting Beatles Trivia, Name That Beatle Tune, plus taking your Beatle Brunch requests on The Brunch microphone and on video for the AfterBrunch. A splendid time is guaranteed for all!
