Macca Gives Beatles Remixers His Blessing

macca is cool with beatles remixers

For those of you who have been contemplating mashing up The Beatles and Britney Spears, but have been too scared, don't worry! Paul McCartney doesn't mind. Hold It Against The Sky With Diamonds can finally become a reality!!!

Despite all types of dramz between EMI and Danger Mouse for his 2006 bootleg Beatles Mash-up The Grey Album, Macca has made it clear that he doesn't have any problem with people remixing The Beatles:

“I didn’t mind when something like that happened with the Grey Album, but the thing was the record company minded. They didn’t like that and they put up a bit of a fuss. But it was like, take it easy guys, it’s a tribute.”

More from Macca:

“There’s so many covers of Beatles songs, whether they are musically good or not, as a composer it’s a tribute. There are certain versions that stand out. Most of the black artists, people like Marvin Gaye (Yesterday) and Ray Charles (Eleanor Rigby). The best thing is having your song regurgitated by someone incredible and thinking, wow, did we write that?”

Right on, Paul! We'll remember that you said this when we're mixing your Beatles with Nicki Minaj.

Sgt. Roman's Lonely Hearts Club Band, anyone???

The Ray Charles Foundation's Suing Ray's Son

Filed under: Music MinuteLegal Matters


Guess he should have check with them first before he paid homage to his father.

Ray Charles Robinson Jr., along with Random House, are being sued by The Ray Charles Foundation for using a photo of Ray Charles and some lyrics in his new book You Don't Know Me: Reflections of My Father, Ray Charles.

The foundation is accusing Ray Jr. of copyright infringement, as the photo used on his book cover was a "work made for hire" and apparently is owned by them. The same goes for the songs he apparently quoted in the book, like I Love Her So and What Kind of Man Are You?

Of course, the foundation wants damages…to the tune of $150,000 per infringement.

Really? Is that really necessary? So basically, you just want to take away all the money he stands to make off this book, is that it?

Just saying!

Ray Charles Musical Delayed!

Filed under: Broadway Babies


Producers for the Ray Charles musical Unchain My Heart announced that the opening has been delayed.

The Broadway musical was scheduled to premiere October 8th, but it has been pushed back to spring of 2011.

"Logistical reasons" have been cited for the date change. The production will open at the Shubert Theatre instead of the Barry Theatre as planned.

We hope it's worth it!
