A Beatles Fan Interview With Sally
Today we have beatles fan and artist Sally Ronchetti.
Who is your favorite beatles?
Thank you Jay for asking me to do this I am very honoured.
My favorite Beatle would most certainly be George? He to me is
the great thinker, quiet and only came forward when he had
something worthwhile and important to say and I think he was the
most spiritual as well.
To you what is the best beatles look?
A wink in my direction from George would have been a great look!
No seriously I liked their leather clad early days but it was ingenious
of Brian to put them into suits it made them stand out from the crowd.
What are your three favorite albums?
1. Revolver: It was ahead of its time and sent the music world
reeling. I think it was the start of creating new sounds by dubbing
and looping and playing music backwards.
2. Rubber Soul: Should be joint number 1 favorite really. Some
amazing songs on there that showed how they had matured as a
group. I love it.
3. Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band: Just summed up
the 60's with its kaleidoscope of colour and sound. Its like
a work of art. If only the kids of today listened to this more,
its the Grandfather of all today's music.
If you could own one beatle album what would that be?
How did you get into the beatles?
I grew up with them when I was little, Ringo was my
favourite because I loved his name and his humour. During
the 70's I was a victim of the teeny bopper charts but I returned
to the Beatles again when I realised what good music really was.
Who was the better song writer, lennon or mccartney?
Two great songwriters each unique in his own way but together
they were explosive, they thrived on jealousy and competition
with each other and produced amazing work. So I cant really
decide, who knows what great songs John would have created had
he lived, we can only judge him on what was.
What is the best beatle book you have ever read?
Did you know there are over eighty nine thousand books registered in
The British library that mention the Beatles in one way or another,
every year more and more are coming out. I have only read a grain
of sands amount compared to those available and I've not read all
I've bought, they are on my 'to be read list' but the the favourite
of the ones I have read Magical Mystery Tours by my friend
Tony Bramwell, its easily readable and good fun.
What is the best beatle movie you have ever watched?
A Hard Days Night. - I love it. Beatlemania at its height, George
meeting Pattie, and portrayal of the old peoples confusion and
incomprehension of the invading music phenomenon that was
the Beatles at that time.
If you had the chance to buy some beatle art, what beatle's
art would you buy?
I wouldn't, I'd be selling mine ha ha! An original John Lennon
or Stuart Sutcliffe would be great to own though.
