Our third Beatletastic spectacular, examining side 3 of the classic double White Album, features singer/songwriter and frontman of pulsating Brisbane pop-rockers Hey Geronimo, Pete Kilroy.
How was “Birthday” responsible for Pete forming Hey Geronimo? Was Lennon taking the piss on “Yer Blues”? Which underrated track does Pete champion as one of his favorite Beatles tunes? Which song by The Who inspired “Helter Skelter”? What were John Lennon’s alternate lyrics for “Sexy Sadie” (WARNING EXPLICIT LANGUAGE)? Is “Long Long Long” about God or a girl?
All this and more on the podcast that thinks if you’ve run out of things to say about the Beatles, start over again in a different language. Next week we wrap up our White Album specials with side 4 and Michael Carpenter.
