Dj Dangermouse Plays With The Beatles Again


Danger Mouse Beatles Jay Z Encore Sir Paul McCartney White Album Black Album The Grey Album

Cheeky New York DJ Dangermouse is incurring the wrath of the Beatles again by incorporating samples from the FAB FOUR's GLASS ONION in his new remix of Jay-Z's Encore.

The underground mixmaster upset Beatle Paul McCartney last year (03) when he 'mashed' the group's White Album together with Jay-Z's Black Album to create The Grey Album without permission.

The accompanying video, which Dangermouse insists he had no part of, incorporates clips of the Beatles' A HARD DAYS NIGHT. This appeared on Internet sites for 24 hours last week (ends26NOV04) before it was deactivated.

Beatles Guitar Going Under The Hammer


George Harrison Revolver White Album Eric Clapton

A guitar played by late BEATLES JOHN LENNON and George Harrison is expected to fetch at least $500,000 (GBP277,000) at auction next month (17DEC04).

Harrison played the GIBSON SG during recording sessions for Fab Four's classic Revolver album in 1965 and 1966, as well as in promotional films for PAPERBACK WRITER and RAIN. The guitar was put to one side until Lennon picked it up again in 1968 during the White Album recording sessions.

Harrison then gave the instrument to BADFINGER member PETE HAM who kept it until he committed suicide in 1975. Ham's brother JOHN stored the guitar away until it was unearthed in 2002 as surviving band members prepared a Badfinger retrospective.

But now Dangermouse has followed-up the hugely popular experiment by using the ENTER SANDMAN group's acclaimed album instead.
