Do You Want to Know a Secret? Beatles Q&A #1: Jimmy Sindelar
In anticipation of the Rock n' Roll Band's next show, a celebration of The Beatles at Ann Arbor's Blind Pig on Saturday March 3rd (Facebook Event), we'll be checking in with the band, friends, and more, grilling them about everything Fab Four.
To start a fresh month, we have a fresh band member! Jimmy Sindelar is the band's hot new guitarist, bringing an extra dimension to the finely tuned rock n' roll machine.
Here's what Jimmy had to say about Merseyside's finest:
Favorite Beatle: Paul, because he has the best "rock" voice and I envy his talent on a daily basis. Also, look at his solo work and his drive to tour/write after the Beatles split.
Favorite Song: She Came in Through the Bathroom Window
Least Favorite Song: Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da (sorry to John G.)
Favorite Solo Beatles Song: No Words (from Paul's Band on the Run)
Favorite Beatles Hair: Sgt. Pepper's (facial hair included)
Favorite Beatles Fashion Statement: Tie between gray suit without shoes and full on denim.
Should the White Album have been condensed?: Yeah, some of it was truly filler, no doubt. Purists will hate it, but I say cut out aforementioned "Ob-La," "Wild Honey Pie," "Don't Pass Me By," "Rev. 9," and "Good Night." I wouldn't miss them.
Beatles Song Character To Avoid in an Alleyway: Polythene Pam, hands down.
Sexiest Beatles Song Character: I feel like this is entrapment. Sadie.
Favorite Paul is Dead Theory: I would have to say the one implying that the Beatles all felt intense regret about hiding Paul's death for the sake of their record sales, so instead found an outlet for their grief by hiding clues in album artwork.
Fifth Beatle: Without a doubt Billy Preston. Rumor has it that, given a different racial climate, he would have been inducted happily into the ranks.
Who was the Walrus: The Eggman IS the Walrus. Just as We are the Universe. Think about it.
Most Overused Beatles Chord? B7. Love it.
And stay tuned everyone for more Q&A action this Friday. In the meantime, let's hear YOUR answers to these questions and more, either in the comments below or over on Facebook.
