I recently discovered this precious clip of George, Paul, and Ringo (minus John) together for perhaps the last time in 1995 singing the old song “Ain’t She Sweet” on a sunny afternoon in a park. This must be what heaven is like.
Speaking of the Beatles, Lucy Vodden, the inspiration behind The Beatles’ song “Lucy in the Sky With Diamonds,” has died of Lupus. She was only 46. As a toddler, she was a classmate of John’s son Julian. One day at school, he painted a picture of her… later, he showed it to his dad and coined the title phrase LITSWD.
The song became a classic on the Sgt. Pepper album and in the 1968 pop art animation feature “Yellow Submarine,” which is now all set to be remade by Disney. (noooo!) Please think of Lucy and donate to the Lupus Foundation.
