We’re celebrating our 50th episode with a month-long look at the Beatles classic self-titled double album, commonly known as The White Album.
We’ll be alternating between regular episodes of the show and four episodes where a different guest tackles one of the four sides each, kicking off today with one of the nicest guys and explosive guitars in Australian rock, Davey Lane.
Should the double album have been a tighter, more focused, single disc? Who plays drums on “Back in the USSR”? How does this album show John and Paul developing their own guitar styles? How did John Lennon rescue a song he hated? What was the first meta rock song? What was the Beatles favorite song on the album? Tune in later this month for side two.
