Beatles fans from around the world have a chance to relive Beatlemania all over again in a new Apple Corps-approved project to collect rare media directly from those who experienced it firsthand.
Earlier this week (November 13) Beatles fans in New York and Los Angeles were treated to mobile Beatle “pop-up shops.” The “shops” were customized double decker buses, which made several stops. The buses served to promote the release of the Beatles’ catalog on 180-gram vinyl LPs. The stores sold the LPs collectively as a box set, as well as individually; Beatles CDs and other merchandise was also on sale. In each city, a unique commemorative shirt from the event was sold (and sold quickly to eager Beatles collectors).
Selections from “The John Lennon Letters” will soon be available in a new app for iPhone iOS.
Paul McCartney apparently had a near-death experience in May which is just being reported on now.
There have been a number of films about The Beatles throughout the years but never one solely based on the life of the man who discovered the band – until now.
The recently refurbished vehicle is scheduled to be available for bidding for between £300,000-£380,000 ($482,880 – $611,648) however, the vehicle is labeled without reserve, it might sell for much more.

The album isn’t quite the same without hearing Dolenz’s stories behind the song choices. He shares a few in our sit-down session with him.
The Beatles’ entire catalog remains one of the most enduring groups of songs in popular culture. Their first single “Love Me Do,” the song is still fun and vibrant 50 years after its original U.K. release. To celebrate the occasion, fans gathered in Liverpool’s docks Friday afternoon to set a new world record for the most Beatles fans singing “Love Me Do” in a round.
