News, Views and Music Issue 9 (Intro)
♫ Not much to report this week on the new releases front after the Christmas rush that was last week. On the AAA front, though, hopefully this will be the last newsletter written before we get published on our fine new free hosting site T35!!!More on our new home next issue…
♫ In fact, the only real news in the world of AAA groups is that Ringo Starr has blotted his copybook with fans yet again this week. From today, Ringo has said via his website that he will no longer be signing autographs for anyone who asks him to as he has too much to do. Peace and love, Ringo—but spare a thought for all the Thomas the Tank Engine toddler fans who won’t get their pictures signed anymore and never had a chance to meet you!
♫ Anniversaries This Week: Bill Wyman (bassist with the Rolling Stones 1962-1989) turns 67 on October 24th and singer Helen Reddy turns 66 on October 25th . Events this week: the 42nd anniversary of the release of the Beach Boys’ record-breaking single ‘Good Vibrations’ (October 22), it’s 38 years since Pink Floyd scored their first UK #1 album with ’Atom Heart Mother’ (October 24th) and the Beatles received their MBEs at Buckingham Palace this week in 1964 (October 26th).
