About

The band consisted of Paul Weller, Paul McCartney, Noel Gallagher, Ocean Colour Scene’s Steve Cradock, Young Disciples’ Carleen Anderson and The Style Council’s Steve White.

When he did ‘Come Together’ with us we were shitting ourselves, so we recorded the backing track ahead of time: ‘Let’s get this down at least’. But when Macca came in he was great. He played some guitar on it and Wurlitzer and he did some BVs with us.

From “Abbey Road Studios” Facebook – War Child UK’s classic charity compilation album ‘Help’ is being reissued on limited-edition vinyl to mark its 25th anniversary and will also be landing on streaming platforms for the first time. The LP was originally recorded at Abbey Road Studios across a single day in September 1995 and was released just one week later in a bid to raise funds for children affected by the Bosnian conflict.

Eight Arms to Hold You: The Solo Beatles Compendium

We owe a lot to Chip Madinger and Mark Easter for the creation of those session pages, but you really have to buy this book to get all the details!

Eight Arms To Hold You: The Solo Beatles Compendium is the ultimate look at the careers of John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Ringo Starr beyond the Beatles. Every aspect of their professional careers as solo artists is explored, from recording sessions, record releases and tours, to television, film and music videos, including everything in between. From their early film soundtrack work to the officially released retrospectives, all solo efforts by the four men are exhaustively examined.
