Today at 12 noon, at Pike Place Market many will gather on the street front as local group Creme Tangerine will play a FREE, Lunchtime, Beatles Music concert from a nearby Rooftop (They will play the songs of the LET IT BE album like The Beatles did on a rooftop in London). This is tribute to 2014 being the 50th year of The Beatles arriving in America. This is also in timing for The Beatles (Paul and Ringo) recieving a Lifetime Achievment at this Sundays Grammys.
Over the years Seattle has always contributed to the Fab Four and their music. George, Paul and Ringo always included this city as a part of many of thier Solo Concerts too (Ringos All Stars, Wings Over America etc.). Then came the Beatles Tribute bands (RAIN, Beatles 64′, The Nowhere Men,) BeatlExpo’s, Beatles Film Fest, Lennons Prize Bently (Yellow Submarine) at Northgate and even occasional fun at the Edgewater Hotel. This was where the Beatles stayed in 1964 (Only Hotel in America not trashed by Fans of Beatlemania). Before radio for me I was employed at The Edgewater for a few years in the 70s. How many times a hotel guest would ask me about The Beatles room (Rm 272) and during a break I would give a tour. firstname.lastname@example.org (picture courtesy of The Edgewater. These fishing rods in the hands george, John and Ringo fishing from the room hung on the wall of the Lounge for years. During remodeling times they were placed ?….remains a mystery)
