Weekend Beatles potpourri - 1 of 2

- "A day in the life" of Paul McCartney.

- Although this is mentioned in the article above, I wanted to be sure to highlight it: whether half-heartedly or not, Paul seems to have expressed interest in the idea of playing with Dave Grohl in his supergroup Them Crooked Vultures. Unfortunately for Paul, the position of bass player was already filled by ex-Led Zeppelin member John Paul Jones.

- The Beatles came in fourth on the Los Angeles Times' Ultimate Top 10 list, which ranked music acts by their combined album and concert sales over the past decade.

- Gordon Caldwell, a nephew of George's, recently died at the age of 52 following a six-year struggle with colon cancer.

- Another death: Erich Segal, the screenwriter for Yellow Submarine as well as a fiction author and professor of classics at Yale, passed away last Sunday after suffering a heart attack.

- "Charting the Beatles: Exploration of Beatles music through infographics." It's cool.
