It's 2014. This is the fiftieth anniversary of The Beatles first coming to America. That it continues to be recognized as such. A milestone for my major change in our society we talked about that that's quite often on the show this weekend is Beatles best. And house of blues it's Saturday night it's not cats are always the main band -- the local performers -- -- -- for the telecast choices Lima astute she'll run good evening. And I adore him. I'd tell you tell us about Beatles fest this year. Are well you're doing to get below local musicians. Children. News of The Beatles and expects us here in the strip -- the year. And you play them nineteen to report to the parks. And other debate and but. Still isn't and kept us. Oh. Syrian. Perform and so on in nineteen -- for future it's sort of a thing. He's been so excited in Ringo playing on like that's so. -- well I it's debatable to this day whether Ringo was actually playing drugs that mean he was he was there he really isn't much of -- drummer but he certainly fit into the whole motif of the deal which is my understanding of why he was. He was selected. Well that's -- that the one person to -- ghost but I'll go. That would regret the model they're the -- came -- that's triple B and that I'll play. A semi secret. You know extra respect some money creates. You know. -- locker -- where it is known -- whole series of what. Modern music now. Though so it -- technically was in New York.

Period -- thank you so long that the need that much wrong. Exit routes it's a good point. Given that -- -- -- in the second -- slow and these beautiful. Long ago after working on this thing you know what I would do what some trouble stop the Middle East squander all that. Right I think about The Beatles -- coming here fifty years ago this year February 1964 and I guess they'd stop touring in its 67 or 68 they didn't really tour for that long. And they went through so many different changes it's really just amazing to look back and and think of the impact -- The Beatles had. Really from 1964 they might start touring in 1967 but they've they broke up on or around 1970. So in a very short period of time they had such a massive impact on music in America and end around the world. Well yeah being you know which -- much. For strictly earlier -- in the streets. You know a couple of insults hurled at the same old political. John Lennon Paul McCartney in studio small and orchards and they get a loan -- You know that terminal at Morgan group -- well you know nuclear launch. You know the ketchup what was the problem. But Bordeaux and get an ultra around -- that such. Other people in there in the center and accordingly the words -- the -- that -- right.

Sirens are made and we try to reproduce it stopped bloggers like. It's it's -- -- -- keyboards it's it's. This mountain without made in that we're doing like this year Arctic.

They're little Brooklyn look at torture. It's amazing like you did it it sells out almost every year deals -- is quite a phenomena and and this is the twelfth year of its house of blues Saturday night. It's amazing to see so many younger people in the crowd who obviously have just come to appreciate The Beatles but they word. They were not born when the elsewhere.

Coastal redundant -- -- But the that the dollars are still on the appreciated. Searched truly great -- a -- how important note every word to the song.

Under the WL yes I did say that Ringo Starr was not a great drummer here's a tax -- did you say Ringo Starr wasn't a great drummer in 2011 Rolling Stone readers named Ringo. The fifth greatest drummer of all time. Well readers of publications don't necessarily. Know who's a good drummer but I do respect rob shall -- the telecast suggested Ringo was a really great drummer because. He perfectly fits. That style of music that genre of music but he wasn't Jon -- and machine on the drums he wasn't terror Keith Moon wasn't some of these.

You what you're there to be discussed. I think to this event before them as preferred. What was the envelope. Welcome and at that particular. -- wonderful. I'm ready to go. I was young and really young in my parents. Didn't to bring me I was very aware of the deals because my grandmother was really have been. Knew all about it but I was not at that concert but I'm sure anybody was there like yourself -- remembers that day The Beatles were in New Orleans. And you know they stayed down and they stated hotel director it was a motel congress in which. Is that but the truth. Kind of been. Our equipment sort of. Arizona adjustment for highway in the -- they stayed there was because it was out of the way and they could actually land a helicopter there and couldn't land helicopters in in downtown New Orleans at the time. And they had to do that because of the windy Ralph I appreciate you usher in a story with us for Texas Howard you're under the WR. Spewed. I think it's -- instance there but I think good -- operated. It in -- used to naive that's -- -- operate in the -- of top corruption. Did that you know higher in the won't police at the top corruption environment I think it is too -- and that's more up. Operate in what happens -- -- the guy who acute loss. It would say it does is that there are public officials politician now participate corrupt activity. It doesn't bother him -- -- -- jail maybe they did have a different details would keep that gap to someone being sent the signal. Both sordid episode and then people think and we had. Politicians like them but look at this corruption with participating in between one phone details -- yeah. And especially especially today it's so easy to track behavior with social media with technology today if it. I don't see how anybody could feel like they would get away with something an office in. They are those people who -- steal agree with Redick and that he -- which targeted and that he's he's not guilty. I find it interesting -- to talk about how he was a businessman. Vice president or president of Kazakhstan carte cable. And he became mayor of the city and there are so many people who think we just need more businesspeople to go to our politics -- all but also the -- but if your politician you have to understand that you. You know it's it's not just about money it. The business world is about greed and money -- -- always politics but do you can't apply the same rules with your competition. In the business world. Did she do when it comes to being in in a public position so you have to be a politician to some degree and understand the rules. Hope politician right now -- Think twice before participate. And I would I would I would hope so and win this how are going to call -- when this goes out over the news you know their people say it's all of the national -- today. It's on -- and their cable news channels went windows gets out about something like a former mayor of New Orleans the guy who -- this city through Katrina and that's the way it's it's being presented. Being sent to prison effort for ten years for corruption bribery and all -- his convictions. There are people who guess who this is just a black eye for the city. And that certainly is one way to look at it. But another way to look at it is. This should also send a message that this kind of behavior is no longer tolerate. That the people who are corrupt. Are going to be found. And they're gonna be prosecuted. It doesn't mean that some don't get away with it but there are two ways to have to look at that for Mary Bryant you're on the -- show. Excuse not pretty green who want to support it with the ruling today. On the first read in. You know he's a public official and he should be held the highest accountability. It's possible should be O. Meter view. I mean it's guys this is in the back upon to people recruit everyone live in the law in the when he says they engage in action and -- in the mean who knows much better of the recovery could have. You know -- not engage dictionary in. And the second point is. It's not like that could be discovered it was duke it out -- at Portland cattle and it's not -- You know they did at rock solid evidence I mean that it's not considered prosecution -- -- and many cases would be really see with that many count. It -- -- 121. And -- up. And our chances you know between in -- -- -- About a couple of months leading up there that apparently static is seem like it he really cared about it and wanted to put them in this situation. Well I certainly understand that argument I mean if you really care about your family your -- -- try to do the right thing in and it appears as if he took advantage of his position as mayor and that's something that. And I -- the public is always concerned about and it's upping the politicians have done throughout time not only here in New Orleans but across the country on local and national levels. On people are driven sold by -- ego and they get in that position and I guess in many ways they feel like there I'm. Untouchable and they'd just had this attitude like -- I'm king of the world that I can do whatever I want and many people take advantage of that position. Always judges were really hammer you know public officials and economic talk and triple what a normal person would get it and maybe people would stop being scared. But I don't mean doesn't that tell you really not been any politician. Now predict. We can only hope -- and -- -- going to culture if you are join us for your thoughts and comments tonight on numbers 2601870. Totals 386688907. At a text -- received 77.

And there are so many generations that have totally bond with The Beatles in the -- wrinkles will be there rocket tootsie and in others will be here Saturday night actually a quite a phenomena. And I mentioned at the outset of my conversation with rob about. It may -- or bring it bring over some really great -- that was Mike Condit although I get this tax that. In 2011. Rolling Stone readers named him the fifth greatest drummer of all time now readers don't necessarily know what makes a good drummer British rob pointed out. Ringo really did fit debts and really did fit the image of The Beatles and and his style. Really did fear that The Beatles music. He brought up a good point about how the songs were so good they didn't need to have a phenomenal robber or somebody who was really very animated -- as a drummer.

He created the most recognizable sound for drums. Now always sounding larger than life he was very musical drummer with incredible techniques deal financed dynamics and power. With a right foot that sounded like too based rounds and received it sure triplets. He was an all around drummer never overplaying their under playing a song everything. Was in the pockets.
