The Beatles - “Don’t Bother Me” - With The Beatles

Don’t Bother Me. The first song that I wrote - as an excercise to see if I could write a song. I wrote it in a hotel in Bournemouth, England, where we were playing a summer season in 1963 - I was sick in bed - maybe that’s why it turned out to be Don’t Bother Me.

I don’t think it’s a particularly good song, it mightn’t even be a song at all but at least it showed me at all I needed to do was keep on writing and then maybe eventually I would write something good. I still feel now ‘I wish I could write something good.’ It’s relativity. It did, however, provide me with an occupation.” - George Harrison, I Me Mine

It helps to have talented band-mates.

Happy birthday, John.  John Coltrane (September 23, 1926 – July 17, 1967)

This is the first thing I ever heard John Coltrane play.  His solo starts about halfway through this gorgeous rendition of the Thelonious Monk standard.
