WYES, Fab Four, simply fabulous remembrance of The Beatles in New Orleans
Written by 

 ringoSimply Fabulous.

That’s how I must describe the “Fab Four”, the look-alike, sound-alike, sing-alike unofficial-official road musical show mimicking of the real “Fab Four”, or commonly known as The Beatles.

 WYES TV, or what I call, the “Official Home of New Orleans” because of its incredible contributions to the region, presented this wonderfully-talented group.  Three of the make-believers hail from California with one originating from Liverpool, the four celebrated the 50-year anniversary of John, Paul, George and Ringo appearing at City Park Stadium, now Tad Gormley.  The original event date was  September 16, 1964.

Simply put, the Beatles, uh, sorry, The Fab Four, wowed those in attendance from the moment that Ed Sullivan (a comedian from Florida), introduced them to the umbrella-laden crowd--who were willing to brave the rain, which amazingly ended as Sullivan’s “really big shew” got on its way.

From the moment “I want to hold your hand” started to the final swaying note of “Hey Jude”, I honestly felt I was watching the actual musical icons of rock, in person.   There they were, in person and on the big screen--Paul’s droopy eyes, Ringo’s playful nose,  George’s weeping lead and John’s stoic vision of  peace.

Over fifty years ago, the Beatles started their musical and cultural journey.  Because of our own musical presence and talent, New Orleans just happened to be one of those cities fortunate enough to host one short night along their magical tour.  

Thanks to WYES, if only for two hours, I was lucky to witness their return to the same football field, taking me down the memories of Penny Lane and Abbey Road. 

Truly, it was just like yesterday.

(Here is the video I made of the show with a battery-drained and phone camera)

wag edwards tweetIn the age of rapid response, social media, President and CEO of the Louisiana Association of Business and Industry took to twitter to apparently poke the Democrat Governor and to promote his own tour of his own legislative package, or legislative outlook tour, beginning today.

Today, Stephen Waguespack of LABI tweeted in response to The Advocate’s Tyler Bridges article that John Bel Edwards would be delaying his release of his tax overhaul package that was scheduled for today.

quin hillyer health 5Have the conservative Freedom Caucus and advocacy organizations such as Freedom Works and Heritage Action "screwed the American people"?

That's the feeling expressed by at least one long-time conservative Republican, who, as millions of others were outraged by the destruction of the Obamacare "repeal" and replacement, on Friday.

comey sitThe GOP will likely claim that the bogus “ Assisted suicide counseling” will still be covered since Obamacare remains the law of the land. That’s good news for GOP legislators who planned on voting “yes” on its repeal. The rich, also, should be happy the old law remains because they have wounds that need tending after the mega tax breaks for them that were inserted in Trumpcare went the way of leeching. The failure to repeal, of course, is the Democrats fault. Trump said so, but he has reason to be happy, too. The health care debacle managed, if just for an hour, or two, to deflect attention away from Russia.
