    Sun Records sent out disc jockey copies of Carl Perkins' Born To Fall in December 1956 and the song appeared on Perkins' 1957 Dance Album. The Beatles performed the song during their ill-fated New Year's Day 1962 audition for Decca and recorded it on September 3 1963 for episode 15 of the BBC's Pop Go The Beatles, which aired three weeks later.

    The Beatles Channel just played Ringo's version of Born To Fall from his 1981 Stop & Smell The Roses album. Paul produced the track and played bass and piano. Linda McCartney sang backup and Lloyd Green played pedal steel guitar. (Green has released 17 albums and 24 singles and played on more than 6,000 recording sessions. He'll be 81 next month and still does occasional session work.)

    Here is Ringo's Born To Fall:

    This now-76-year-old ex-Beatle continues to put out good rock'n'roll albums -- and the writer of love songs such as Something and I Will continues to come up with a few surprises. In one song on Egypt Station he asks, "Who cares what the idiots say? Who cares what the idiots do?" In another song, which he told the BBC refers to Donald Trump's belief that global warming is a hoax, he sings, "Despite repeated warnings of dangers up ahead, the captain won't be listening to what's been said.....Despite repeated warnings from those who ought to know, well, he's got his own agenda and so he'll go....."

    Egypt Station is number one on this week's Billboard album chart. Sir Paul, your fans obviously still love you. Yeah, yeah, yeah!

    Egypt Station becomes Paul McCartney's first number-one album in more than 36 years

    60 Minutes is not a 60-minute program. Several of those 60 minutes are taken up by commercials. Be that as it may.....

    Paul McCartney speaks with 60 Minutes
    Just a few weeks shy of the 50th anniversary of the Beatles' 'White Album,' McCartney speaks candidly with Sharyn Alfonsi as he prepares to tour for his new album, Egypt Station. Sunday, September 29 at 7:30 PM ET and 7 PM PT on CBS.

    Giles Martin, son of Beatles producer George Martin, hosted an invitation-only event yesterday at Capitol Records in Hollywood. He played several demos and outtakes from the upcoming 50th-anniversary boxed set -- but, for obvious reasons, not all 107 tracks. A 30-minute version of Helter Skelter was omitted from the boxed set and that's fine with me. I don't think I could stand to listen to a 30-minute version of Helter Skelter.

    Emerick, who became an assistant engineer at Abbey Road Studios when he was only 15 and didn't remain an assistant for very long, won Grammy awards for his work on Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band, Abbey Road and Paul McCartney's Band On The Run.

    Geoff Emerick, Beatles' chief recording engineer, dies at 72

    Ain't That A Shame, a 1955 hit for Fats Domino -- and, yes, also for Pat Boone -- was the first song John Lennon learned to play. The Beatles Channel just played Paul McCartney's version from his Снова в СССР ("Back In The USSR Again") album which was released in the Soviet Union in 1988 and worldwide in 1991. Nick Garvey, former member of the Motors and Ducks Deluxe, plays bass guitar. Here is the song -- hurry and listen!
