You N B See Paul?
Sir Paul helped raise the stock for the NBC television network
over the weekend by hosting Saturday Night Live where he participated
in the opening sketch, did a bit in the news and sang several
songs with his longtime band. Paul launched into Jet,
then later returned for Band on the Run and at the
end, Get Back. He also led the crowd in a rousing
rendition of Give Peace a Chance at the shows
He kicked off the weekend, though, in typical McCartney style,
by doing a song hes never performed in public before on
Late Night With Jimmy Fallon Friday, December 10th.
He and Jimmy sang Yesterday using the songs
original working lyrics, Scrambled Eggs, complete
with new lyrics comparing his love for various other foods, including
waffle fries and tofu wings.

GARY GRIMES: Paul
The Beatle world lost a friend this week when Gary Grimes (Paul)
of the band "1964- The Tribute passed away. They were
truly one of the best tribute bands in history, having formed
in 1982 and given more than 2900 performances. Gary, according
to Beatle Brunch listener Frank Branchini, was approachable and
always nice. Gary, it is reported, had a brain tumor and passed
away on Monday. He was only 60 years old, a first generation Beatle
Fan and long time friend of Joe Johnson's Beatle Brunch who promoted
their 1st Carnegie Hall appearance (a heralded sellout and invited
back the following year for 2 engagements). Joe had the privilege
of hosting them when they played New Orleans several years ago.
Heres a photo from the New Orleans show. Thats Gary
playing The Hoffner on the left.

Heaven In NYC
Beatle Brunch Club member, Ambrosio Hernandez
from Miami to New York last week to be at Strawberry Fields on
the 30th anniversary of John's passing. Here's his story:
My visit to Strawberry Fields in New York City on the 30th anniversary
of John Lennon's death brought back memories of that fateful day
in December of 1980. In the midst of the sadness, the truth is
that John's dream of peace and love in the world is still very
much alive. Even though it was a very cold day thousands of people
of different generations, races and nationalities came together
in Strawberry Fields to show their love for John Lennon and to
say "yes" to peace and "no" to violence. I
had the privilege to play guitar with other Beatle fans for hours.
The songs and John's memory made us feel as one big family. People
talked to each other as if they were friends of many years. Imagine
if you will a brotherhood of man. A terrible act committed 30
years ago, instead of hate, keeps bringing people together for
love and peace remembering John Lennon. This is an experience
that I will always remember. May God keep John Lennon's soul in
LENNON A Remembrance
By Larry Kane
If John Lennon were alive today, he would probably say, Whats
the fuss? John, like all performers, had a reasonable ego, but
the center of his life was seeking the truth, and eventually,
using his fame to help people, and impact lives directly.
While he decried governments who abused their authority, he also
had a special place in his heart for officers of the law, campaigning
quite often to raise money for badly needed bulletproof vests.
