We kick off 2017 at the Chateau Marmont, where I join Harper Simon for bacon, eggs and coffee to talk about the most iconic double album in pop history - the Beatles White Album.
We talk about how the album shows George Harrison coming into his own, the incredible musical diversity on the record, Eric Clapton and outside players guesting on Beatles records, whether knowing the Beatles personally changes how you listen to their music, whether or not ‘Revolution 9′ should’ve been cut from the album, the lyrical directness of the songs and that time Paul McCartney taught Harper how to play ‘Mother Nature’s Son’.
