    I'm really very happy to say that most people I have known throughout my life recognized they The Beatles specifically John and Paul were brilliant singer song writers and very good musicians.The only Beatles haters I ever knew were 14 and 15 year old boys in school and one of them became a huge Beatles fan on his own. A guy I was friends with for many years who lived down the street and was 2 years older was a big fan too and he also liked Frank Zappa and his brother who was 10 years older than me had a big music collection and he loved The Beatles too,so did his mother and sister.I once spoke with their stepfather about how John and Paul are rightfully widely rearded by most people,most rock and music critics,and many other well known respected rock musicians and artists as 2 of the greatest song writers of the 20th century and he said I think so too.

    My sister 4 years older had an even bigger diverse music collection, and she always loved The Beatles too.She bought Paul McCartney and Wings great 1975 rock album,Venus and Mars when it came out in 1975 and she said years later it's one of the best rock albums she ever heard and that it's unique and she knows no album like it and it is a great album. When I was 9 I had a teacher in library class play The Beatles great rock album Abbey Road on a little record player and she said they were genuises.When I was 11 my music teacher asked us to guess who he was talking about when he said they were genuises and they wrote about 200 mostly popular acclaimed songs and many great albums in just an 8 year recording career,and I already being a big fan guessed it exactly right and said,John Lennon and Paul McCartney,The Beatles and he smiled and said yes thats right!

    And the only reason that I posted all of this information is because I'm so sick of this kind of ridiculous inaccurate ignorant garbage being said about Th Beatles all over the place for years now. I have been a huge highly impressed Beatles fan(specifically a big John and Paul fan) since I was 11 when I got my first Beatles book for my 11th birthday,I started collecting their albums at age 9,and I had every great album by age 13,I was born after 1964 too. My father had a lot of different music in the house and was a big Bob Dylan fan and had many of his albums,he also had a Peter Paul and Mary album,a Leonard Cohen album and Herb Alpert and The Tijuana Brass albums which I liked even at age 4.I also had my own radio at age 9 and I listened to a lot of music.

    "That song sounds the most like him," Isley said. "That's how he played in our living room without an amplifier. It's one of my favorites." Isley said the Experienced Hendrix tour is an illuminating reminder of the full range of Hendrix's genius, both as a performer and a composer. "He's a pioneer -- like Louis Armstrong and Miles Davis were to the trumpet, he was to the electric guitar," Isley said. "He expanded, through his work, what the guitar was able to do." nReporter Gary Demuth can be reached at 822-1405 or by e-mail at gdemuth@salina.com. salina.com is an online feature of the Salina Journal Copyright © 2010 Salina Journal and MediaSpan Contact Us Terms of Service

    In June 1967, Hendrix returned to the U.S. to play the Monterey Pop Festival, where his stunning performance, culminating in the lighting of his guitar on fire, made him a legend. A year after playing the Woodstock festival in 1969, Hendrix was dead. "I was in my freshman year of college when I heard the news," Isley said "I thought it was a publicity stunt. When I found it was true, I was shocked." 'Manic Depression' Although the Experience Hendrix tour has been around in one form or another since 1995, this will be Isley's first year as part of the line-up. He'll be performing the Hendrix classic "Manic Depression" from that first album. nReporter Gary Demuth can be reached at 822-1405 or by e-mail at gdemuth@salina.com. salina.com is an online feature of the Salina Journal Copyright © 2010 Salina Journal and MediaSpan Contact Us Terms of Service

    "My younger brother Marvin and I were sitting on either side of Jimi," he said. "We used to watch Saturday morning cartoons with him." In 1966, Hendrix moved to London at the persuasion of Chas Chandler, a former member of the British rock group The Animals who would become Hendrix's manager. "Before he left, he asked if he could keep his white Stratocaster," Isley said. Jimi Hendrix Experience In England, Hendrix formed The Jimi Hendrix Experience. The band's first album, 1967's "Are You Experienced?" produced the smash hits "Purple Haze" and "Hey Joe." salina.com is an online feature of the Salina Journal Copyright © 2010 Salina Journal and MediaSpan Contact Us Terms of Service

    Experience a musical tribute to JIMI HENDRIX 3/12/2010 By GARY DEMUTH Salina Journal Hendrix moved into a spare bedroom in the Isley family home, where he stayed for the next two years between touring gigs with The Isley Brothers, Ernie Isley said. "He was polite, had a good sense of humor and got along well with kids," Isley said. "He practiced the guitar a whole lot, which I didn't understand at the time, because his abilities were already there. He was so good already." One of Isley's most vivid memories was watching The Beatles' first performance on the Ed Sullivan Show with Hendrix in February 1964. The Isleys and Hendrix were fans of the Fab Four and enthusiastically watched the performance from the Isley living room. salina.com is an online feature of the Salina Journal Copyright © 2010 Salina Journal and MediaSpan Contact Us Terms of Service

    "Where are you going to be able to see that many great guitar players that close, that intimate," Kassem said. "These artists owe a lot to Jimi Hendrix, and this tour is a great way for musicians and fans to honor his memory." Saturday morning cartoons Back in 1963, Hendrix was anything but a legend when he arrived at the Isley family's Englewood, N.J., doorstep, Ernie Isley said. In fact, the guitarist was dirt poor and in dire need of two things -- a new guitar and a place to stay. "He had this old scruffy guitar, and (my brothers) wanted to get him a good guitar," Isley said. "So they bought him a white Fender Stratocaster." nReporter Gary Demuth can be reached at 822-1405 or by e-mail at gdemuth@salina.com. salina.com is an online feature of the Salina Journal Copyright © 2010 Salina Journal and MediaSpan Contact Us Terms of Service

    Chad Kassem, owner of Acoustic Sounds and Blue Heaven Studios and producer of Salina's annual Bluesmasters at the Crossroads concerts, was responsible for the tour's stop in Salina. Shepherd, Tedeschi, Sumlin and Layton have recorded at Blue Heaven Studios, and when Kassem heard the limited tour was performing in Denver and Kansas City with a day off in-between, he called tour promoters to arrange a Salina concert. Kassem, who has seen the Experience Hendrix show twice, said it's a once in a lifetime opportunity to see some of the world's greatest guitarists pay tribute to the world's most influential guitarist. nReporter Gary Demuth can be reached at 822-1405 or by e-mail at gdemuth@salina.com. salina.com is an online feature of the Salina Journal Copyright © 2010 Salina Journal and MediaSpan Contact Us Terms of Service

    The guitarist's name was Jimi Hendrix. Hendrix not only would turn out to be a good guitarist for The Isley Brothers, but he would become arguably the most influential guitarist in rock history, a performer whose singular guitar style was immortalized in songs like "Purple Haze," "All Along the Watchtower," "Foxy Lady" and a breathtaking rendition of "Star Spangled Banner" at the legendary Woodstock festival in 1969. nReporter Gary Demuth can be reached at 822-1405 or by e-mail at gdemuth@salina.com. salina.com is an online feature of the Salina Journal Copyright © 2010 Salina Journal and MediaSpan Contact Us Terms of Service

    Experience a musical tribute to JIMI HENDRIX 3/12/2010 By GARY DEMUTH Salina Journal Ernie Isley was just 11 when his big brothers brought home their new guitar player. In the spring of 1963, The Isley Brothers were a highly successful rhythm and blues, soul and funk band that had recorded several hits in the late 1950s and early 1960s, including "Shout" (revived in 1978 for the movie "Animal House") and "Twist and Shout," a 1962 song that inspired The Beatles to record their own version a year later. The brothers had found their new guitar player in Greenwich Village, N.Y., Ernie Isley said. "He had a reputation for being good," he said. The guitarist's name was Jimi Hendrix. nReporter Gary Demuth can be reached at 822-1405 or by e-mail at gdemuth@salina.com. salina.com is an online feature of the Salina Journal Copyright © 2010 Salina Journal and MediaSpan Contact Us Terms of Service

    Most people in the world don't hate The Beatles in the first place and people don't usually go from hating a band to loving them, so it just goes to show how great and timeless their music really is/was! I once found a post a few years ago of a 35 year old musician in Jamaica who said on his blog that when he was younger and a big Who fan he used to think The Beatles were overrated, but that he did a 300 degree turn around and he said he now truly believes that The Beatles were the greatest rock band ever.

    I have found over 50 former Beatles haters on different message boards who are now big Beatles fans,many call them The Greatest Rock Band Ever and most say they now think they were brilliant song writers. I didn't communicate with these people, but they said in their posts that they hadn't even heard most of their songs and albums,and had inaccurate misperceptions of them like the ridiculous one that they ever were a "boy band." Which besides knowing even most of their music and knowing their history knows is totally false. Last year a musician posted on some message board about the new John Lennon biography, and he said watch The Beatles Anthology video series and learn how truly immensely talented this band was.
