World Premiere: "Studio 2" - Beatles Tribute Song - Fab 4 Radio (internet) on August 19.
Beatlemania lives, especially in Las Vegas, where the Cirque du Soleil's Love is still a smash and Beatles tribute bands perform nightly. "The songs of The Beatles have a magic quality that transcends time," says Bill Donati. "Seeing them live was an epiphany."
Byron's Dream, Bill's new CD, includes a whimsical song about EMI's Abbey Road and seeing the group perform on August 19, 1966, in Memphis. "I saw both shows," says Donati. "I sat right behind the stage. We were all curious about their secret sessions at EMI's Abbey Road studio. The songs had a unique sound.
"Geoff Emerick's fine book Here, There and Everywhere, about recording The Beatles, is a superb account for fans. I started as a garage drummer but my group, The Goatdancers, recorded for the Ardent label in Memphis (Ace/Big Beat).
"Fab 4 Radio's debut of my song is a thrill. The station has a great playlist with listeners in 50 nations. I couldn't get George, but I got Jimmy," says Donati, referring to famous musician Jimmy Pou who toured the world as Harrison in Beatlemania. "Jimmy co-produced Byron's Dream. He is a fabulous guitarist and will be in Liverpool in late August performing his tribute to George Harrison." Recorded at Nactrax in Las Vegas; available on CD Baby on August 19.
