    Please, get well soon. I purchased your book last month via iBooks. I’m almost done. I’m on the chapter, “Many Years From Now.” You must be healthy. We need you in Beatleland. Best regards.

    I see a new film will be out soon, about an unsuccessful musician who wakes up one day in a world where the Beatles never existed, and he’s the only one who remembers their songs. He becomes a star with their compositions.

      What an odd premise for a movie. Odd, but interesting. I’m not a movie watcher — I honestly can’t remember the last movie I saw in the theater — so I’d have to hear feedback from others on it before I’d consider watching it. What do you think about it, Sam?

    What do you think about it

    The two trailers are entertaining. The musical performances sound great. I found myself deeply moved by the brief clip of the guy playing YESTERDAY to his friends and their astonished reaction. I just love the songs so much, and they’re so intertwined with my own personal memories that all sort sorts of emotions well up when I see something like this.

    I thought it was a clever use of the Beatles font in the film titles. Did you notice?

    Apparently, Paul and Ringo make an appearance at the end of the film. (Notice one of them is barefoot; a reference to the Abbey Road cover?)

    I’m assuming the whole thing ends up being a dream, because the Beatleless world seems musically identical to our own, which sort of ignores their influence. I mean, would there be a Coldplay without the Beatles? I don’t know. Maybe.

      I had the same question myself, when they mentioned Coldplay. I remember thinking: what would a non-Beatles influenced Coldplay sound like? What would a non-Beatles pop music world sound like, for that matter?
