Beatles and Bloomies!!!

Sorry for the late update today, but I had such a great time hosting ladies night at the Publick House last night that I decided to sleep in....

Here's the latest happenings in our music world...

The new official Beatles iPods are now available exclusively at Bloomingdales, according to The iPods, which contain no Beatles music, comes in a $795 collectors box which includes the 13 original Beatles CDs, the two catch-all Past Masters CD collections, The Beatles LOVE CD and an engraved guitar pick. Only 2,500 units are available of the 120-GB iPod classic, which features "a laser-etched Beatles logo on the front and a silhouette of the Abbey Road album cover on the back." There has been no word on the rumored "Yellow Submarine" iPod which was believed to the model being sold this holiday season.
U2's Bono has added a new gig to his already-busy schedule: writing for the New York Times. According to Radar Online, New York Times editorial page editor Andrew Rosenthal said Bono will write between six and 10 pieces for the newspaper next year on various topics ranging from poverty to Frank Sinatra. As for pay, there won't be any. The U2 frontman is doing it for free. The editor also expressed an interest in having Queen guitarist Brian May contribute some columns.
Roger Daltrey credits Michael J. Fox for the Who's current North American tour. The band had promised to perform at a benefit for the Michael J. Fox Foundation For Parkinson's Research back in 2004, but couldn't coordinate their schedules until now. The Who will perform at the A Funny Thing Happened On The Way To Cure Parkinson's -- a special private benefit for the Foundation on November 5th at New York City's Waldorf Astoria.
