"he'd talk about the old days, reminiscing about ...the Beatles, who actually rehearsed at Royal before their 1964 U.S. tour."
I always heard the Beatles bought "revolvers" while they were over here and when they were practicing at Royal, they went up on the roof and started firing them into the air! Willie declared the rehearsal officially over.
A full 2 hour tribute to POPPA WILLIE MITCHELL tonight at 10PM.
Doing this one right with the help of Al, Ann, Don, Otis, O.V., Syl, and more. If I don't own any physical evidence that he produced it, I ain't playing it. Tons of killer sides of Willie's own tunes as well.
If in Memphis, tune to 89.9FM...
