Destiny is after all….Scripted

This past Saturday, just as I was reading through my morning best friend `The Times of India’, I came across this wonderful little article which made me question, think and come to this conclusion within a span of 5 min where I said to myself, that Destiny is after all scripted!

Being in India and surrounded by bollywood, I’ve heard stories like how BIG B was rejected by All India Radio for his voice, or how SRK was told by producers in his struggling days that his hair looked like a bear.  But being a musician, I want every music lover to read this wonderful little story about a `John lennon and his band called `The Beatles’ ….

John lennon, Paul Mccartney, George Harrison and Ringo Starr who formed what is arguably, the greatest band ever formed, The Beatles and who have to their credit 7 Grammy awards, 15 Ivor Novello awards, 6 Diamond Albums, 45 gold albums ,39 platinum albums, 24 multi-platinum albums, an Academy Award for best film score ,Appointment by Queen Elizabeth II as members of the Order Of The British Empire in 1965 and over a billion record sales……   were REJECTED by a record company ?? And now, the same audition tape is on auction at a pre-sale estimate of 30,000!!  Here’s the article from The Times of India below for you…



`Record company rejected Beatles tape in 1962 .


A former UK record company boss says he made one of the worst judgement calls in music history in 1962.The ex-Decca Records executive had rejected an audition tape by The Beatles, saying he thought guitar groups were on the way out. The fledgling group were also told they had no future in show business following the 1962 audition, during which they recorded a ten-track demo tape. Within months John, Paul, George and original drummer Pete Best had signed with EMI and went on to become the greatest band of all time.

Now the original safety master tape the group recorded at Decca’s London studios on New Year’s Day in 1962 has come to public light for the first time, reports The Daily Mail.It is thought the Beatles manager Brian Epstein held on to the tape he had paid to make, and later gave it to an executive associated with EMI. He sold it in 2002 to a prolific buyer of music memorabilia, who is now selling it at auction with a pre-sale estimate of 30,000.The recording has never been officially released and the sound quality on it is said to be pristine, according to the British tabloid.
