WOODY HAILS JOHNSON on the HIGH SEAS

We know many of our Beatles Brunch Fans and BBC members missed our last Ticket to Ride on a BBC Cruise . . .

Now you can picture yourself in a boat on a river … well … the Caribbean Ocean and All our Friends are Aboard and Many More of Them Live Next Door on this incredible Beatles Tribute Cruise.
It sets sail from Ft. Lauderdale on 3/28/10 aboard Royal Caribbean’s newest and most luxurious ship the
Independence of the Seas for 6 nights. On our Long and Winding Road we’ll stop at Belize City, Cozumel and Costa Maya. Joining this Magical History Cruise will be some Beatles insiders who loved, lived with, photographed, wrote about and captured the stories and images of the Beatles as few people ever have.

 
All Together Now we have:
 
Beatle Brunch’s own, Joe Johnson, Cruise Co-Host
Joe will handle the Beatles Trivia Contest (with some fantastic Beatles prizes) and conducting Jorie Gracen’s Question and Answer Session called “Behind the Lens with Paul McCartney”
   
May Pang

John’s former assistant, girlfriend and the author of “Loving John” and “Instamatic Karma”

MAY PANG worked for ABKCO, in the early 1970's, and from there was hired as John and Yoko's personal assistant.
She spent the "Long Weekend" with John Lennon. John recorded "Walls and Bridges", and "Rock and Roll" with May by his side.

After her relationship with Lennon ended, May Pang worked for Island Records and United Artists. In addition to photography, she designs a line of feng shui jewelry and furniture. She lives in New York with her two children.

   

Nancy Lee Andrews

Ringo’s former fiancee’, fashion model, photographer and the author of “A Dose of Rock and Roll”

May and Nancy will participate in their own Q & A Session called “The Rock and Roll Asylum” which will take you back to the time they met when John and May rented Peter Lawford’s house on Santa Monica Beach in order to record Harry Nilsson’s Pussycats album.

Her six-year relationship (1974-1980) and engagement with Ringo granted her an all access pass to a world beyond the velvet rope.
Part of that access included intimate and candid photographs of Ringo Starr's life in the seventies. Andrews started her career on the other side of the lens in 1970 when renowned photographer Milton Greene recognized her need to click the shutter.

Living with them were Ringo, Keith Moon, Klaus Voormann and Harry Nilsson. This is where John Lennon set Nancy up with Ringo. They will have some great stories to tell.

   
Shannon
the World’s Greatest Beatles Artist, just had her name placed on the Cavern Club’s Wall of Fame.
She is the first non-musician to be honored this way. The day of the cruise, March 28, 2010. She will unveil eight of her Beatles creations for the Hard Days Night Hotel. Her first book is coming out in March, 2010 and our cruise will be the first stop on her book tour. And maybe with a little coaxing (OK…very little) we can get her to create one of her original Beatles art pieces on the ship.
   
Paul Saltzman

Beatles photographer and the author of “The Beatles in Rishikesh”. A new printing of his book is "The Beatles in India"

Paul will be hosting his Beatles in India Multi-Media presentation.

PAUL McCartney CD/DVD
"GOOD EVENING NEW YORK CITY"

Paul McCartney was the last rocker (with Billy Joel), to close historic Shea Stadium, so it’s only fitting that he was chosen to kick off a new era of concerts there. And now “Good Evening New York City” is coming, featuring Macca’s three nights at the new home of The Mets: Citifield.

The 30+ songs and nearly 3 hours of music comprising “Good Evening New York City” are a must-have for attendees wishing to relive the July 17, 18 & 21 shows, those who couldn't get tickets and/or anyone interested in an audiovisual document of a living legend.

As the inaugural musical event at Citi Field, the site of the former Shea Stadium, the July 2009 shows held special significance not only for McCartney but for generations of his fans.

The concert footage featured on the standard edition is comprised of footage directed by Paul Becher, who has overseen live visuals for McCartney for some 200 performances and counting.

The deluxe edition bonus DVD will feature footage of McCartney's July 15 performance on the outdoor marquee of the Ed Sullivan Theater, previously available only as a webcast on the Late Show with David Letterman website.

Julian Lennon Records
Tribute to “Lucy”

The passing of Lucy Vodder, Julian’s friend who inspired “Lucy in the Sky With Diamonds”, so moved Julian, that he sings on a song with his friend James Scott Cook in tribute to his dear old friend. The song is called “Lucy” and Julian recently sang backup vocals on the song for inclusion on his new CD due out later this year. Proceeds from the song will be donated to charities supporting research for Lupus, the disease that took the life of the storied Lucy.
