I'd Ask My Friends To Come and See

Love opens today in Vegas. Man, I have mixed feelings about this. I suppose exposing the Beatles' great catalog of music to new audiences is always a good thing, although really, who has yet to be exposed? Cirque du Soleil just seems so cheesy and to act out Beatle "characters" from their songs seems to oversimplify what they really mean to people. Well, it's not like I'm going to Vegas to see it anyway. There is word, though, that the music George Martin and his son worked on (mash-ups, remixes, etc.) will see a formal CD release later this year. While I'm sure it won't be as inventive as The Grey Album, it's still cool to hear different takes on the many things the Beatles have done.
