Over the last couple of decades or so, it's become popular consensus that the gorgeous, harmonized guitar solo portions of AYBCS are played by George and Paul. Now another wrench gets thrown into this recipe...Kevin Howllet who is pretty well respected in "Beatleworld" is the host of a nicely put together SIRIUS Beatles Channel special in which he runs down each and every officially released Beatles track in order of its' recording. And when he got to AYBCS he refers to the great guitar soloing done by George and JOHN. So, as is the case with many Beatle "mysteries", here we go yet once again!Thoughts?
Hamhead, who I have always thought has to be retarded:
I always thought it was artificial double tracking which gave it that two guitar sound.
Did they ever play AYBCS live? The studio take just sounds like George adding a 'harmony' guitar line via overdubbing to me.
The second lead guitar part really doesn't sound like John or Paul's tone at the time. The rhythm guitar sounds like John alone.
AYBCS? I had to look what it was because I don’t speak in that language. That drives me nuts about the SHiTEs. I wish they would all FOAD.
"I must say though, artists like Kurt or Thelonious Monk who people think have something to say of the highest importance but are really just suicidal or insane sort of freak me out. Why? Well, everyone thought Monk was really "out there" but they followed his lead and jazz changed. Turns out he really was insane and was finally locked up. Does that mean that the jazzers were wrong to follow him? No, but still." - STeVE
Can someone tell me a movie that was necessary? Christ can these guys enjoy anything?
Maybe it is just me but if I see a movie, album, book, whatever, that seems unnecessary to me I just avoid it.
SH.tv reminds me of s friend I used to have. She was negative about everything, even down to a shade of thread I used to reattach a button once. Once we went out separate ways I realized how being around that really affected me. Hoofyville is the same way. They all are clamoring there because who else wants them!

Tours that ignore the new album
Every so often a major artist will go on tour within a few months before or after releasing a new album, but then they play nothing, or very little, from that new album.
The most glaring example of this is the Beatles, who released Revolver in early August 1966, and toured several countries in June-August of that year, but didn't play a note from the album. (Their final shows did include four songs from Yesterday and Today, but that was largely a compilation of leftover 1965 recordings and the cuts they performed live had been on the market elsewhere for six months or more.)
Queen also comes to mind. They released A Night at the Opera, arguably their masterpiece, in November 1975. A month later, they performed a presumably high-profile Christmas show, mostly sticking to their earlier set list except for an incomplete "Bohemian Rhapsody." I'm not counting "God Save the Queen" because that was played on tape at the concert, rather than performed live.
Other examples of tours that included fewer than two songs from the new album that the tour ostensibly promoted?
I don't think there's an active thread on this subject, apologies if I missed it. It's hard to think of good search terms that would bring relevant threads to the surface.

...Nothing from "Revolver."
However, there were FOUR songs from the album Yesterday & Today which was less than 2 months old! Kinda new-ish. Definitely, not ignored.

Much to the consternation of his hardcore fans, Paul McCartney has been playing just 3 songs from "Egypt Station" on his current tour -- and not the tunes most of us consider the strongest from the album.
