Chuck Berry would be 90 today!!
Here’s clip of the Beatles performing Chuck’s song ‘Rollover Beethoven’ live.
All 4 Beatles and Chuck Berry will be performing LIVE at the European ITF Taekwon-Do Championships in Liverpool at the Echo Arena in April 2017.
Well… Not all of them…. or any of them in fact but I’m sure they’ll be there in spirit. As they can’t be there (they’re washing their hair that night/something good on TV/are dead/or whatever) make sure you’re there instead!
You wouldn’t want to miss out on such a great event would you? ‘Course not!
“Roll Over Beethoven” was a favourite of John Lennon, Paul McCartney and George Harrison even before they had chosen “The Beatles” as their name, and they continued to play it live right into their American tours of 1964. Their version of “Roll Over Beethoven” was recorded on 30 July 1963 for their second British LP, With The Beatles, and features George Harrison on vocals and guitar. In the United States, it was released 10 April 1964 as the opening track of The Beatles’ Second Album.
In 1994, The Beatles released a live version of “Roll Over Beethoven” on Live at the BBC. This live version was recorded on 28 February 1964 and broadcast on 30 March 1964 as part of a BBC series starring The Beatles called From Us to You. This version of “Roll Over Beethoven” was used in the film Superman III directed by Richard Lester who also directed The Beatles’ first two films, Help! and A Hard Day’s Night.
