Gives chills how ancient some of the buildings look, so atmospheric and romantic. Feels like I was there! Thanks, they're all smashing pix. I dig seeing a statue of a woman (Cilla Black), there should be lots more of women. Always feel chills and thrills seeing those new ones of the Fabs. I know y'all been to Beatles Week before and it's cool you keep returning. Lucky duckies.  The lads were always city boys, weren't they, save for Paul and Linda's sojourn on his farm near Sussex, damn can't spell it LOL, near Rye I think, and there's a statue of Linda erected there, sitting on a bench. Really love seeing all these and hearing Robyn's news. I'm glad she found a full time position. I love to see young people work for and achieve their dreams.

Congrats to The Girl.



This was the second year we went to the Festival.  We enjoyed it both times

Do you not know who Cilla Black is?  She worked in The Cavern and also sang and was picked up by Brian too.  This was the same time as The Beatles and Gerry and the Pacemakers.  She recorded mainly Lennon/McCartney songs but later became more of a TV personality.  I think due to (my opinion) of not having a great singing voice.  She died a couple of years ago quite suddenly and still very young.  She was also in The Music of Lennon and McCartney.

Thanks for the extra info on her, I knew who Cilla Black is, though. I just meant I wish there were more statues of women. I've only seen a few. But there are more around than I've seen. I joked during the Confederate statue uproar that they should put up Beatle statues in place of the Civil War ones, LOL, was just being silly and joking around. (Can't really joke about the racist hate march in Charlottesville, or about Cheeto being a racist.)
Paul McCartney's new album might come out in early 2018. Hope so.
