Monday Beatles potpourri

- "Unreleased Beatles Ed Sullivan Show Footage Coming in September."

- A provocative question is posed: "Would (The) Beatles make it in today's music world?" (It's actually just a springboard for an examination of how the music industry has changed over the last half-century.)

- Let's once again revisit the day John and Paul met. In other Quarrymen news, Ken Brown, "a guitarist who played alongside three future members of the Beatles -- George Harrison, John Lennon and Paul McCartney," passed away last month. And in other Liverpool news: "EVERY Beatles album will be performed live in one day for the first time in history to mark 50 years since the band played under the name." This will take place at Liddypool's Matthew Street Festival in August.

- What Beatles TV programming is worth watching?

- About Paul Is Undead: The British Zombie Invasion.

- "Norwegian Wood" has been licensed for use in Norwegian Wood.

- What has Liam Gallagher been fantasizing about lately?

- Members of Guided By Voices and Nada Surf are collaborating on a Beatles tribute project.

- Lastly, the future of the Cow Palace, San Francisco's famed arena, is in limbo.
