Paramore and You and Me at Six in Berlin

Jeeze, I really hit the ground running this time in Berlin. Day after I landed I was up and at em getting new US passport and a facial, next day massaging Paul McCartney's guitarist, Brian Ray , then saw the show that night (I paid 250 euro for my ticket so I wasn't after a freebie, although I was gutted Paul had no time for a massage).



Next day after Macca show (which by the way was good BUT I could have just watched the DVD I have called Back in the US , live concert footage from 2002 from Paul, which was almost EXACTLY like the show I saw here in Berlin December 3rd, 2009. I mean even the dialog was the same "this is when the band goes away and leaves me alone with YOU" etc. sigh. FUCK!!! I LOVE the Beatles and Paul but had I known the set list and dialog was an exact replica I would have stayed home and slept off a big of this jet lag I STILL have. This below is the best shot I could get from the Macca show:


You can see the set list on my blog of that show HERE



Drummer Zac – only 19 years old and already so successful. This band is going places. Seriously.  Check them out:



Singer Josh is a super sweet person (also 19 years old!). This band is from London, keep your eye out: http: / / www. myspace. com/youmeatsix



Paramore was headlining, they are HUGE now. Heard they penned a song or two from the Twilight movie sound track so the crowd was 99.9% young screaming girls lol. The band Paramore are SO down to earth. I got along with the bassist and drummer the best. They are both very chatty and fun. Guitarist was a sweety but very quiet. He and the drummer are brothers. I love meeting young musicians who are ambitious, successful and not into drugs. They will go far, I just have a feeling about these guys. Nashville natives takin' over, yo. 


The band You and Me at Six are very popular in the UK and slowly gaining respect in Europe and the USA too. Super young as well, dam I felt old around all these 19 year olds! Hello!! haha. Well I massaged for 9 hours straight apart from the dinner break I had and my fingers were sore the next day, the deep tissue massage I give out is BRUTAL. The clients love it but my fingers are not amused the next day. 


Berlin is FREEZING, it is too fucking cold to even snow here. Jesus. Anyway, I am running a slight fever, rather cranky and miss my Jasmine so I will stop moaning now and get to bed

Dear Boy

"I guess you never knew,
Dear boy, what you had found,
I guess you never knew,
Dear boy, that she was just the cutest thing around.
I guess you never knew what you had found,
Dear boy.
I stepped in, my heart was down and out,
But her love came through and brought me 'round,
got me up and about.
I guess you never saw,
Dear boy, that love was there,
And maybe when you look too hard,
Dear boy, you never do become aware.
I guess you never did become aware,
Dear Boy.
When I stepped in, my heart was down and out,
But her love came through and brought me 'round,
got me up and about.
I hope you never know, dear boy,
how much you missed,
And even when you fall in love,
Dear boy, it won't be half as good as this
I hope you never know how much you missed, dear boy.
I stepped in, my heart was down and out,
But her love came through and brought me 'round,
got me up and about.
Dear boy, how much you missed,
Dear boy" 


Paul McCartney

Love, the drug?

Some folks function better when the are in love but some people turn to shit when they are in love. Like love is a flu or something that paralyzes them, clouds their thoughts, confuses them and over powers them. Still not sure if being in love is a good thing or a bad thing. I suppose if you have a good relationship to love, it may push you up, but if you don't, it will steal our face rite off your head. The hurricane called love. Like a roller coaster, all the ups and downs. pffft.

It is raining it's ASS off again here in NYC. It was sunny yesterday, but now it's a monsoon again. I feel like the final countdown is on now, slowing tying up loose ends here in NYC in anticipation for my return to Berlin in June. It still bothers me greatly to live in two different places and lead two different lives. When will it end? “I want a horse, I want a sheep, wanna get me a good night sleep, lookin for a home in the heart of the country.. gonna move, gonna go, gonna tell everyone I know, lookin for a home in the heart of the country” Macca .

Guess I wasn’t the only one who thought Larry King gave such an interview

My friend John from CT sent this to me today: 
As for Larry: still a clueless media dipshit-dork. some things/people never change, even with age.

Last night, Ringo Starr, Paul McCartney, Yoko Ono, Olivia Harrison, Giles Martin and some guy from Cirque du Soleil appeared on Larry King Live. During the chat, King was his usual full-on-boob self, and at one point even referred to Starr as "George." As a public service, we've isolated all of King's questions and comments from the program's transcript, and we encourage you to scan through and re-enact random moments with your friends and co-workers. Moments like these!:

KING: Do you guys, frankly, pinch yourselves?
KING: I mean, do you — do you get up in the morning and say, jeez?
KING: No, I mean — you know what I mean?

KING: This was — was this your baby, Olivia?

KING: What do you think George would have thought of it?

KING: What would John have thought, Yoko?

KING: Do you feel their presence?

You never remarried, right?

KING: And, again, we'll be meeting Paul and Ringo in a little while. And then at the end, they'll all be with us, a kind of reunion of The Beatles.

Do you feel, Yoko, that The Beatles have kind of surrounded you, that you're forever identified as a Beatle?

KING: Even though there were breakups and ups and downs?

KING: Yes.

Olivia, how do you handle this?

They see you, they think Beatle.

KING: So you don't look at it in any way as it — there's a down to it?

KING: Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr will join us shortly.

When we come back, more talk with Yoko and Olivia, who loved and lost John and George.

You'll also meet the founder of Cirque du Soleil.

Don't go away.

KING: One of the great songs of all time.

Yoko Ono Lennon and Olivia Harrison remain with us.

We're joined now by the genius, Guy Laliberte. He is the founder of Cirque du Soleil.

What does that song mean to you, Olivia, by the way? HARRISON: Well, it's just an _expression of love really, isn't it?

KING: It's one of the great love songs.

KING: Beautiful melody and lyrics.

Did every one of The Beatles like that song, Yoko?

KING: It worked out, too?

KING: You didn't know that?

KING: All right, Guy, how did this all come together?

KING: And did he come up with this idea?

KING: Did the process begin there…

KING: … And was it underway when George passed away?

KING: Yoko, you had to sign off on this, didn't you?

KING: Did you have any questions?

KING: He says yes.

KING: What was it like, Olivia, the first time you saw it done?

KING: Were they easy to work with, Guy?

The truth.

KING: Well, let me tell you the audience, it pays off. If you're in Vegas you must see Love. I mean it's incredible.

You're all going to see it again tonight after the show.

When we come back, Paul and Ringo.

Don't go away.

KING: Anyway, we're celebrating the one year anniversary of Love, the Cirque du Soleil presentation of The Beatles here at The Mirage Hotel in Las Vegas.

Joining us now, Paul McCartney, the former Beatle. His latest album is "Memory Almost Full." I love that title. It's holding at number three on the Billboard 200 List and he's gotten some tremendous reviews. And Ringo Starr, the other former living Beatle. Ringo's EMI catalog goes into global digital release August 28th, a career spanning collection of Ringo's best solo recordings — "Photograph: The Very Best of Ringo Starr," will be released on the same date.

The only two men who can say, living men who can say I was a Beatle.

Do you guys keep in touch?

KING: You talk often?

KING: What do you make of this?

What do you make of this whole thing?

KING: Of this, yes.

KING: Were you surprised…

KING: When you first saw the show, The Beatles and Cirque du Soleil, what did you think?

KING: When you first heard.

KING: Did you like it right away, Ringo?


KING: Do you guys, frankly, pinch yourselves?

KING: I mean, do you — do you get up in the morning and say, jeez?

KING: No, I mean — you know what I mean?

KING: It's getting risky.


KING: Come on, you changed the world.

KING: Yes.

KING: It grows.

KING: You joined them after they were…

KING: You made them?


KING: Were you — all of you friendly?

I mean did it…

KING: Big in Germany.

KING: Did you think…

KING: Did you think The Beatles would make it, make it?

KING: No, you — really…

KING: Big at home?

KING: When it took off and you — that first trip to the United States, what was that like?

KING: And what a story.

Where were you when — when John passed?

KING: Did somebody call you?

KING: George, where were you?

KING: Ringo.

KING: Ringo, where were you?

KING: I was getting to (INAUDIBLE) George.

KING: Was George's passing expected?

KING: Because you knew how sick he was?

KING: Oh, you did?

KING: Look what I have written. It says here…

KING: We're back with Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr and a mandolin!

KING: That commercial for that record with you in a kind of cartoon figure walKING. Was that your idea?

KING: It's really is a great spot. And the album is doing great, right?

KING: You couldn't drum with him on that?

KING: You would have used him though.

KING: Let's get up to something ….

KING: Let's get to something current. How are you doing, Ringo?

KING: Life treating you well?

KING: Everything good, the wife good?

KING: The wife is gorgeous, too.

KING: And you live in California, right?


KING: I knew that.

KING: With the swells.

KING: And Paul, how are you adjusting to what was tumultuous times?

KING: I mean, that had to be rough.

KING: Still rough.

KING: That's fair enough. But life is — aside from that …

KING: Musically, neither of you has to keep on going, correct? You don't need it financially?

KING: What do you mean?

KING: I love what I do.

KING: So the drive is not for — how much the record sells? It's how well do they like the record?

KING: Do you still get a kick hearing the music of The Beatles?

KING: Like when we come back…

KING: They were a good group.

KING: So when you watch the show tonight, and that music comes on and you're watching the dancers and the gymnasts. And — you still get a kick out of hearing …

KING: Central glue, wait a minute, the drums are the key to The Beatles.

KING: What does that mean?

KING: What do you think you've meant in this scheme of things? You came through in the '60s. The world changed. Do you feel The Beatles were part of the impact of that change?

KING: You know I can't tell you …

KING: We'll take a break and bring all four on, the widows and the living.

KING: I want to tell you something. No, in all seriousness, I don't get emotional on this show.

KING: This is really incredible.

KING: Sitting around you guys. You changed the world.

KING: Incredible.

KING: You ought to be.

KING: We'll be right back …

KING: … all four of them. Don't go away.

KING: And we're in the revolution lounge.

KING: Here in Las Vegas with Ringo and Paul. I said that they will all be gathering with us in the next break, but we wanted to show you a little package first and get their reaction to it.

The Cirque Du Soleil's production of The Beatles is a unique entertainment experience. But behind the mind-blowing on-stage magic, a lot of dedicated creative energy.

KING: What makes the way these songs are done so special?

KING: Everything that happens has to fit the song that's playing?

KING: Can we hear a little sound?

KING: Let's listen.

KING: See you tonight.

KING: What is that called?

KING: We could be twin brothers.

KING: What do you think of all that behind-the-scenes stuff?

KING: When music is remastered, as they were showing us, Mr. Martin, what does that mean to you as a musician?

KING: So it's improving it?

KING: Modern technology.

KING: How do they do it? We don't know.

KING: We'll be back with Paul, Ringo, Yoko, Olivia and Guy. All next. Don't go away.

KING: You know, this is historic. They are all together. Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr, Yoko Ono, Olivia Harrison and Guy Laliberte, the founder of Cirque du Soleil.

A couple of questions as we swing around for each.

Is it hard, Olivia, to look at George?

KING: So it's — mixed emotions?

KING: Yoko, what's it like to look at John?

KING: Do you get nervous about every performance, Guy?

KING: You've got, what, how many Cirque du Soleils going now?

KING: I mean, like you sit up at night and think, oh, he's going to fall?

KING: Ringo, do you have to play drums a lot? Do you have to keep in shape?


KING: And when you're drumming…

KING: … do you know how good they are singing?

KING: You played for the singer?

KING: What made the Beatles, Paul, musically special? What did they do that people weren't doing?

KING: You can't plan that, though, can you?

KING: Guy, is it — was it difficult to stage to that music?

KING: I bet.

KING: With a bunch of little kids from England.

KING: Did George miss the group?

KING: Did John miss it?

KING: These guys weren't.

KING: We're running close on time, because we have a big finale coming up here. Oh, we have got a production — a production finale. We're all going to go out, we're going to be next to the theater, the show is going to begin. By the way, we had a quick vote on our Web site,

KING. We asked you to pick your favorite Beatles album. What won?

KING: "Abbey Road" won, followed by "Sergeant Pepper," and "The White Album" came in third.

KING: "Abbey Road" won, followed by "Sergeant Pepper," and "The White Album" came in third.

Tomorrow night's guest is Paris Hilton. You may have heard of her. Head to our Web site,, and you can send an e- mail for Paris. You can also send a video mail. Send a timeline and participate in a quick vote. It's all on

The whole crew and I are heading for the theater. Don't go away.

KING: All right. Well, we're back stage. The whole crew is here. Right?


Oh yes, I am very aware that this photo has already appeared in one of my former blogs, but I don't care, it is my favorite photo and I still can not get over the fact that I got to kiss Paul McCartney!! Fucking hell, wake me up, am I dreaming?

I ordered “The Beatles Anthology” on DVD and Paul McCartney's “Back in the U.S” DVD and I want to say a few things about both of them. The Paul DVD is incredible, but obviously the camera men on his tour were HORN DOGS, they show girls with HUGE TITS throughout the whole friggin' concert. I mean, I can understand one or two gorgeous women being shown now and then, but this is SO OBVIOUS. I mean, Paul doesn't strike me as such a tit man, or a prev – at all! He seems like a big innocent sweet heart! But who ever edited this concert material decided, well, lets put as many breast in there as we can, so the men watching don't get bored ( er , rather, the men editing it don't get bored). But other than that, it is fucking amazing.

Moving rite along, if you are at ALL a Beatles fan, you simply can not go on in life without buying the Anthology DVD's. I am glued to the TV every night watching each one, I am now on part 7, they are the BOMB. Every thing the Beatles ever did, sang, went, wore, shagged, its all in there. It has so much info and rare footage, every Beatles fan will be pleased. And anyone who watches it, who isn't a fan, will probably have to throw in the towel and love them too.

I am still in Berlin, and it is FREEEEEZING here! I will have to honor of massaging an Italian super star this Saturday afternoon, he is called Eros Ramazotti. He is very talented and
