News from the music world
This week will be a great week for all music lovers, whose who love listening to music and those who love to collect music and instruments.
Beatles’ piano is out for sell: The Beatles fan… go gear up to have your new best friend !!! A piano, which has many memories with Beatles is going to hit for the auction.
The piano, which is kept at London's Abbey Road studios, is going to be sold for more than 100,000 pounds. The old piano still bears the touches of the great musicians with the stains of coffee and cigarette burns.
This piano was used in the great numbers such as Tomorrow Never Knows and Paperback Writer. And both the Beatles numbers were recorded at the Abbey Road's Studio Three in the year of 1966. Pink Floyd in 1973 also used this piano in Dark Side of the Moon.
The consultant specialist at the Bonhams auction house, Stephen Maycock revealed that the piano was the first musical instrument from the studio, which had come for auction. As quoted by AFP, Stephen Maycock said, “I think it is the first instrument from the Abbey Road studios to come on the open market. The piano has had quite a few knocks. It's had coffee cups placed on it and it's got cigarette burns.”
He also added that the piano is still in good position, even though it retired from service in early 1980s. He said, “It's a working instrument that was used pretty much every day of its working life, and it's got the scars to prove it. But it still plays well and sounds great.”
The auction will take place on August 15.
Its J-Lo Vs Susan Boyle: they have no parity or match in any sphere of life but yet they are being compared and are placed in competitors’ seats !!!
Susan Boyle, emerged from a talent show, is a de-glamorous yet possessor of a gorgeous voice and Jennifer Lopez is a diva. No comparison at all! Yet they are brought at the same stage by blockbuster musical television show, Glee. It has prioritized one of them over the other unexpectedly in an episode.
You must be guessing that Susan Boyle, the 49 old singer, is replaced by the super glamorous J Lo in the show! Yeh..right… but only in your dreams, because Boyle steals the show and J Lo is actually defeated by the comparatively newcomer in the industry.
Yes, you heard it right!!!
Ryan Murphy, the co-creator of the Television series said, “I have two words for you: Lunch. Lady. I think Kurt [played by Chris Colfer] would just die to give her a Christmas makeover. I don't even know if she's interested, but it's been pitched.”
Some critics would say that Boyle's record label and Glee’ record level is the same, Columbia. However, J Lo has signed for Def Jam. And this can be a solid reason for the replacement.
But whatever the reason, it is true that J Lo, who featured in many Hollywood movies and hit singles, is replaced by SuBo, the winner of Britain's Got Talent!
