Yes, I remember it like it was yesterday.... 1964, hummmm...pause...drifting off in my mind.....yea...[quieter now]... I was 14 years old...'groovy', I was just starting to notice that BOYS were very cool, and kissing not so bad. In fact, I liked it.
I'd even pretended I was kissing GEORGE HARRISON and HERE, my favorite Beatle, of course, while I'd listen to 'I Wanna Hold Your Hand', [thanks FlameClawBeatles]...their tune that first started winning awards for them. Then, I talked in my best 'Beatle's Accent' while I'd take my weekly guitar lesson with my best friend Astrid Sather, who loved PAUL McCARTNEY and HERE the best...we knew we'd both be singing with the Beatles someday, and would win more awards with them. The very best, biggest and greatest awards of all. WOW...hormones can make you believe in the BIGGEST everything, can't they?...cool. But Folks, that's the way it really was when I was 14 in 1964, it was BIG, the Beatles were BIG news. the BIGGEST news.
The Rolling Stone, link above, says that the Beatles have won 25 awards over the years...and, I believe them. They'll get this Lifetime Achievement Award, given by 'Recording Academy', before the Grammys ceremony in January 2014 along with some other cool folks in a special ceremony.
I thought it was very cool that the photographer JIM MARSHALL and HERE ,who took those wonderful old photos of the Beatles and 'Woodstock' and HERE too back in the '60's, and Beatle Paul McCartney as a solo artist, will be honored at the same ceremony. Jan
