Mancow: ‘Cow Calls Beatles, Fab 4 Generation Money-Grubbing Losers

The 56th Annual GRAMMY Awards - Special Merit Awards Ceremony.JPEG-0e658See the Beatles special last night?

Most underwhelming.

It reflects on us and our mortality when we see the invincible tumble and giants brought to their knees.

And YoKo dancing? Ugh!

Sean Lennon clearly didn’t know the lyrics but tried to act like he did. It’s all just about money now.

I said to my wife, “Really, how long are they going to milk this?” And she responded, “As long as they can.”

McCartney gives up cannabisAnd the interviews with audience members? Tedious. 

Some of the performances were dreadful and Paul looked like the Queen of England reviewing the troops.

And the Letterman segments – just not cool.

Here’s the thing; they ARE the establishment now.

The misfits and malcontents won, but then DIDNT DO ANYTHING. The generation that would change the world got drunk and went for a drive after they were handed the keys to the kingdom.

Sean Lennon-AES-124418

Sean Lennon

America’s hangover is gonna be a doozy. The new “pigs” that are coming to bust up this party aren’t made up of fathers, neighbors, and local yokels. Putin, the Chinese and the Islamists aren’t nearly as enamored with tie-dye as us.

And the circus performers spinning about were just distraction.

Ringo’s peace signs – and even the bedazzled glitter peace sign on his shirt – were bullshit. I met him. He’s a grumpy, bitter old cuss. Have you seen videos of him online? He’s MEAN! “Yeah ,yeah, BBC, peace!”

The Beatles never stopped suing each other. It’s all about the money and the egos and those really aren’t very attractive attributes when you get down to it.

Julian Lennon

Julian Lennon

At least they all did a good job of squeezing the talented Julian Lennon out of the picture. He finally got a small amount of money after a lifetime of fighting YoKo and Sean.

And Sean Lennon? Is anybody gonna mention what a spoiled little creep he is? Well, his dad WAS murdered and he WAS left alone with YoKo, so he gets a pass, I guess.

The Beatles, from “Ya, ya, ya” to “blah, blah, blah.”

    I’ll agree with you mancow that show was horrible.
    It was amazing how many artists could butcher some of the most prominent
    songs in music history.
    Joe walsh butchered two…..keith urban absolutely destroyed one….
    why would you take some of the most incredible songs in music history
    and have these country and folk rock stars butcher them in front
    of their originator(s).
    Ringo looked horrible trying to sing and dance to his LITTLE HELP
    the beatles music is so incredible…so long standing…so beautifully written…
    so precise and so great that it was garbage that all those current star
    ruined every song they tried to sing.
    If I was McCartney I would have stood up and said “STOP THIS”….
    you are ruining everything we’ve written/sang over the last
    50 years by tryingto cover the songs with people who aren’t even
    close to the talent of john/paul/George in writing the most
    creative and great songs ever produced!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    At least Zappa and I have the Shaggs, you can keep yer Beatles and that phony mania crap.

  3. mike t. says:

    btw… hearne… didn’t you used to do a ‘separated at birth’ feature? sean lennon (bless his soul) and brent spiner?

  4. CG says:

    Hey Mancow, nothing lasts forever!!!! Nothing. So my hats off to the Beatles the biggest name group in our history of rock, by far…yep they got old, some died, and they will milk til they can’t. It’s ok…nothing lasts forever not even ‘flower pot bread.’

  5. Hot Carl says:

    Their music stands the test of time. Specials like the one shown last night, however bad it was, can never diminish what the Beatles mean to rock music and pop culture.

  6. expat says:

    I’ve never met Sean but some of my friends run into him often at events for a charitable organization in NYC. They tell me he’s a very nice, level headed guy, not spoiled at all.

  7. balbonis moleskine says:

    I remember when Mancow was here in KC with Treetop doing a poor-man’s Howard Stern Show. Now he is on Fox trying to be Bill O’Reilly. Life is weird sometimes. Does he still wear the dick-target goatee?

    • admin says:

      Wow, Treetop!

      Whatever became of that dude?

      I remember writing about him being hired to host a station in NYC and them limo-ing him to work. Really nice guy…kind of like Kelly Urich.

  8. Libertarian says:

    You had me at ‘mancow’.

  9. Joey Gallo says:

    Who’s the grumpy, bitter old cuss? Good god Mancow, shut the fuck up!

  10. PB says:

    Wow, Mancow met Ringo once and therefore is an authority on his personality.

    Joey Gallo had it right, what’s rich is, some washed up radio hack calling out The Beatles as The Establishment when he himself comes off sounding like some bitter old man from the 1960s shaking his fist at “all those goddamn hippies”. I guess I missed the part where The Beatles were ever anything but a money-grubbing entity as they were not only musical trendsetters, but the original celebrity hucksters hawking everything from bubblegum cards to lunch boxes before almost anyone else did. Jeezuz Christ, their first appearance in America was harmonizing in matching suits between a juggling act and Topogegio on the ultimate Establishment program in The Ed Sullivan Show. Yeah, those edgy, bad boys Brits sure scared the shit out of teenage girls across the globe.

  11. Glenn says:

    Ghastly event. It speaks volumes that the ONLY talented offspring of the fab four – Julian – is rarely seen at these events. In fact, Yoko OH NO and Sean literally make me sick. The fight Yoko gave Julian over his inheritance was protracted and vicious, and I hope she rots in hell for what she put that kid through.

    Sean is constantly hanging on to his mother’s coattails, literally and figuratively.

    Ringo still is treated like the lightweight of the survivors by the ever industrious and domineering Paul. He was constantly reminded by Paul and John of how little talent he really had. He just got lucky at being at the right place, at the right time – according to them.

    In fact, when the press asked John if Ringo was the best drummer in the world, he stated, “he’s not even the best drummer in the Beatles.”
