“John talked very kind of Liverpool docker talk…George was a bit more of a perfectionist. John seemed a little more relaxed”
Cha-Chi Loprete was gracious enough to give us permission to post his extraordinary interview with British Rock Star, Joey Molland that aired yesterday morning on his famous WZLX radio show, Breakfast With The Beatles.
Joey tells some fascinating stories about his life, what it was like working with John Lennon on “Imagine” and George Harrison on “All Things Must Pass” along with other momentous musical experiences, including being part of the Concert for Bangladesh. And the whole thing starts off with a brand-new version of Badfinger’s hit “Come And Get It” by The Hollywood Vampires (Alice Cooper, Johnny Depp, Joe Perry and guests including Paul McCartney, Robby Krieger, Dave Grohl and others).
You can see Joey Molland and Badfinger this Saturday, right down the road at Beverly’s intimate, acoustically spectacular Larcom Theatre with Salem’s rising stars Brooks Young Band opening. Good seats are still available. Get tickets here.
Speaking of the Concert for Bangladesh, here’s a short recap of how some of the world’s biggest rock stars came together in 1971 for THE concert that set the standard for all future fund-raising efforts.
