The world lost the great George Martin last week, legendary and innovative producer for much of The Beatles catalogue. In March, I’m featuring songs that make me move and this one pays tribute to the man often referred to as the fifth Beatle.
Rest in peace, George Martin … and thank you.
Enjoy “I Saw Her Standing There,” and have a super week,
Last week, I featured the song “Layla” by Eric Clapton to highlight the guitar solo by Duane Allman.
George Harrison wrote “While My Guitar Gently Weeps” and the Beatles recorded it for their White Album. The lead guitarist, however, was not George Harrison.
Who was it?
None other than Eric Clapton. 😉
Clapton’s solos appear at 1:57 and 3:35 until the end of the song.
The video is a montage of my favourite Beatle. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.
Have a great week,
I’m finishing September and the Britpop series with one of the biggest hits for the band, Oasis.
“Don’t Look Back in Anger” received its title inspiration from David Bowie’s song “Look Back In Anger.” You might also notice the piano intro resembles that of John Lennon’s “Imagine” and “Watching the Wheels.” Both Bowie and the Beatles were heavy influencers for Oasis.
Hope you enjoy the song, and like it says, don’t look back in anger. 😉
Have a terrific week,
At the beginning of this month, I did a Goodreads Giveaway for one print copy of Stranger at Sunset. The giveaway took place from Oct 1-15. Here are the stats from that promotion.
~ 1153 people signed up to win a copy.
~ 591 people added the book to their “To Read” shelf.
~ The giveaway was available to readers worldwide.
~ A reader from the USA won.
I consider it a goodwill gesture to do giveaways, and it’s an easy way to connect to more readers if you have a print version of your book. Given the success of my first giveaway, I will run another one next month.
In the meantime, Stranger at Sunset in e-book format is still 99 cents for another week, so pick it up!

This is a perfect song for writers. Enjoy and have a great week,
Another hot week coming up. I hope to leave the city for part of it and be near water.
I might even try out my new bikini. 😉
Enjoy the sunshine, and if you want to add more heat to your day, pick up any of my titles on Amazon.
