I think he used it on Paperback Writer and Hey Bulldog. That’s the infamous guitar George gave to Pete Hamm who played it on all of Badfinger’s hits. In the book Beatle’s Gear, they tell that after Pete Hamm committed suicide, his wife took a lot of his gear, including the red SG, and sold them at a yard sale. So....somewhere there’s somebody with a guitar owned by a Beatle and Pete Hamm that was played on some great songs and they have no clue.
Those are some incredibly British looking lads
Well here's another clue for you all -
The Walrus punched Paul
No! That was a great tour!
This is HA-CHA! Certainly not my aunt ferns 64' beetle
The Beatles... completely, totally, fantastically in a league completely their own - one which no other band can possibly enter. The totality of their work is simply mind boggling. Compositions, harmonies, vocals, innovations, versatility, range of genres, impact on the world... Jeez.
Sure... there are a lot of other very amazing bands. But none which enter the echelon which The Beatles created.
Actually the red SG was use heavily on many Badfinger songs. The opening chords for "No Matter What" being one as told to me by Joey Molland. The person that currently owns the guitar does know its musical importance. He paid $500,000.00 at a Christie's auction. It was owned by Pete Ham's brother prior to the time of auction.
Now did this accident happen to the first Paul or the second Paul?
Pretty unique- four British lads that were genii and formed a band, changed attitudes, gave the world more than just their brilliant music. Like lots of us here, I grew up listening to them in the 60s. What a decade.
I like how much George looks like Keef in the Paperback Writer clip. Same barber?
Either way, The Beatles were so lucky that Paul2 was even more talented than Paul1 - and that he was available at the time.
If only his 1965 version of ‘Silly Love Songs’* had been a hit for him in his own right we might have forgotten about the Beatles by now apart from the annual vigil at Paul’s grave in Liverpool. ‘Billy Shears’ would no doubt still be one of the biggest entertainment.... oh - he is!
*the tapes are now closely guarded in a deep vault under the Mull of Kintyre, protected by a herd of killer sheep and a shepherd known as ‘Mr Presley’.
You're all "looking thru a glass onion"
1964 SG Standard with the Maestro vib arm. You can tell it's George's by the crooked truss rod cover There's footage of John playing it on the Anthology DVD. George gave it to Pete Ham, who used it for five years and gave it to his brother before it was eventually auctioned as noted above.
Now you are opening a can of worms!!
