...The Beatles climbed up on the roof and performed their last "concert"
I remember in high school going to the movie theatre and seeing the movie of the rooftop concert. I wish they would release it I'd love to have the DVD. They look like they were enjoying themselves. Thanks for posting a great memory!
did they ever pass the audition?
Gimme some roof
don't let me down
Vale, George.... son of Mr Green Jeans......
I saw that concert when it was first realeased, as well.. I guess it was sad it was the last time we would see them together playing live...
We were quite into the latter Beatles then, all the long hair and walking fashion statements.......
Ahhhhh, ....my first Rosewood Tele sighting.
Every time I see these clips I want one.
Confession: I was on eBay just the other night looking at some MIJ TLs! Just can justify it right now plus am worried they would just be too heavy. I like 'em light nowadays.
Wonder if that is why George gave it away to Delaney Bramlett. Too heavy. Delaney still has it last I heard.
Actually, the rosewood Tele found its way back to George at some point. It's featured in Dhani's iPad app/gallery of Harrison's guitars.
I managed to get a hooky copy of the film on DVD, I hadn't seen it since the seventies, when it was aired on the TV. Incredible piece of filmmaking.
I followed the Beatles from their public beginnings in North America and the start of Beatlemania until this ending. This film still evokes some pretty strong emotions in me. Thanks for posting it.
And yes, George's estate has the rosewood Tele back. I read about it first in Guitar Aficionado magazine (no, I don't buy it very often) and then in Dhani's iPad app as well. So much history…
I think you can still see it on youtube,I used to watch it a lot.Then there's this site 1channel you can watch a lot of movies free.
Cool! Didn't know about the app. Just downloaded it! Wow! Thanks!
We didn't know it at the time though. I saw the Beatles at Shea and I doubt ever actually envisioned a world without them.
The cops basically shut them down for noise violation, right? So had they gotten a permit (or, you know, played inside somewhere...) would it have been longer? Or was the plan always just "play 'til The Man stops us"?
I could watch this over and over and over. Thanks for posting this.
44 years later and the Fab Four can still Bring-it.
Delaney passed away a couple of yrs ago. Prior to his passing the guitar was sold at auction and the Harrison estate got the guitar back.
I'd love to see the full 40 mins version of the rooftop gig, only 20 in the movie.
