PAUL MCCARTNEY GRAND FINALE AT THE GRAMMYS by Martin M. Rocha

And in the end……he was knighted by the British Empire as he is Sir Paul. One of the greatest performers of all time delivers a grand finale to remember.  During the last few minutes as we all waited after some great performers; the bass-man; instrumentalist and man of a thousand voices closes the show with the last three songs on the last Beatles album (Abbey Road) with that lasting and enduring lyric. Golden Slumbers/Carry that Weight/The End; the second part medley of side two still sounds as good as ever. After so many years and tears of joy he took the stage and the night just ended in a high perfect note.

A note that transmits, transforms and transcends from music to art and art to music. They still blend together as Paul shows he is still one of the most astonishing show man of all time. He is incredible and after all we could all say that Chris Farley did ask the right questions in that enjoyable humorous interview over fifteen years ago.

“AND IN THE END….THE LOVE YOU TAKE …..IS EQUAL TO THE LOVE YOU MAKE”. Simple and beautiful and Mr. Farley questions “IS THAT TRUE?” Of course it is! The more you give the more you get! “THAT WAS AWESOME!” Awesome is what describes last night performance. Thumbs up!

The McCartney Postcard

This is a colored pencil drawing of two images from McCartney 1 and one image of McCartney 2. One of them is done in black and white style and the other two are done in Sepia tone. It measures 24 by 30 and completed on a poster board. I came up with the idea of making them look like three distinctive photographs in 3-D style overlapping each other with a post card that reads “McCartney”. I thought it would be a nice touch to draw an Apple logo stamp with London postage seal as well as two separate seals on the yellow background. That gives it a glimpse that they are placed in front of a large envelope. I hope you like it.

Paul McCartney ha llegado a Chicago : Martin M. Rocha

Ha llegado la gran leyenda Paul McCartney a la ciudad de los vientos; Chicago.Uno de los conciertos mas esperados del verano. Quien se iba a imaginar que despues de tanto tiempo Paul McCartney llegara a dar conciertos en partes de Latinoamerica.

Paul

Paul 1

Estuvo en Peru durante el dia de las madres y para muchos Peruano ese fue un gran regalo. Un regalo que nunca olvidaran. Tocando conciertos un nuestros paises de habla hispana es un gran sueno hecho realidad. Ha dado conciertos en Mexico y no solamente hemos disfrutado horas de su musica, pero quien se hubiera imaginado que la gran leyenda hable un poco de espanol con sus grandes aficionados.

Paul

Paul 2

Dijo en un concierto que los Latinos tenemos un espiritu de entretenimiento muy grande y muy apreciable. Somos un publico con mucha fuerza y aplauso y agradecemos su musica con un mayor entusiasmo.

Paul

Paul 3

Hoy me siento muy afortunado de poder ir a ver a una de las grandes leyendas del Rock n Roll!! Se que va a ser un gran concierto al igual que lo fue exactamente hace 21 anyos en el Soldier Field el 31 de julio de 1990 y hoy 31 de julio de 2011 va ser algo muy especial.

Paul McCartney is on the run and in Chicago : by Martin M. Rocha

Sir Paul is here!! He is a living legend and has been the most successful musician of all time. Bringing an average of three and a half hours of music to the windy city. What else can we Beatle fans ask for?

Paul McCartney

Paul 1

From the 1960’s The Beatles have the greatest musical catalog in music history and they never did no wrong. Every album is an amazing feast; from the first one “Please Please Me” to their top of their game and reaching the top of the mountain”Abbey Road”. They never disappointed their fans.

Paul McCartney

Paul 2

Throughout the 1970’s when he formed Wings he brought some amazing music as well. His ultimate best during that era being “Band on the run” is phenomenal. I was only a kid when he toured in 1975-1976 and didn’t return to Chicago until 1989. I was lucky to see him for the first time on July 31st 1990. His show was mind blowing and probably the only concert that the entire stadium at Soldier Field sang every song from the Beatles and Wings Catalog.

Paul McCartney 1967

Paul 3

Now exactly 21 years later I am lucky to see him again and to enjoy the magic of his music, magic that brings so much beauty to many of us. Well Beatle fans, let the show begin, see you at Wrigley Field tonight; a splendid time is guaranteed for all.

The Beatles influence in Latin America and the Rolling Stones disaster at Altamont by Martin M. Rocha

The Beatles made an impact in the world of music and their influence was felt throughout the world. In Spanish speaking countries, there is no doubt that their music continues to give people happiness. Latin Americans don’t need to be fluent in English to enjoy their music, but believe or not many people learn; and are motivated by the simplicity and the beauty of the music. The Beatles can do no wrong. Even after 41 years since their break up they still continue to be deliver such a strong message. Measuring at 24 by 36 this drawing is a tribute to my favorite era. The year of Abbey Road.

The Beatles

The Beatles

Another phenomenal band, The Rolling Stones represented the hard driven blues rock n roll of the 60’s and 70’s. Another tribute drawing within the same measurements as The Beatles above; I was inspired by their Altamont tragedy. Dubbed as “Woodstock West” many rock n roll fans view the Altamont disaster as the death of the sixties. Tragedy struck the festival when during The Rolling Stones set a fan was killed in the audience. What makes this interesting is the fact that some fans think it occurred while they were playing “Sympathy for the Devil”. Bizarre, isn’t it? In fact they were playing “Under my thumb”. The rest is history.

The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, The Doors and Art : by Martin M. Rocha Art

I have always been a fan of Music magazines. Ever since the mid to late sixties music journalism had made some interesting headlines. 1968 was no exception; drawing and putting together fictional magazines with real historical events is entertaining as I also consider fan art.

Lennon

The Beatles’ 1968 white album symbolized the historical events of such a fascinating year. Some of these headlines include :

1)Back in the USSR – The Soviet Union invade Checkoslovakia.

2) Mexico 1968 and the Olympic games.

3)Blackbird – Riots in the United States.

4)Happiness is not a warm gun – Luther King and Kennedy.

5)While their guitar gently weeps – Clapton and Hendrix.

Jagger

Morrison

The Lizard King dies under mysterious circumstances. His death in Paris.

Stickabilities

I have always used Stickabilities and transfer letters to bring elegance. Using materials from Blick Art, Crescent and Prismacolor.

Transferring tool

That’s the tool that I use to transfer the letters through rubbing or to straighten sticky letters. As you could see in the process. I apply pressure into the poster board to make the letters strong into the area where it best gives an impressive outlook of art.

The transferring process

The Beatles fan art : John Lennon 1940-1980 (Sepia Tone style)

Lennon 1

One of the greatest musical icons of the 20th century was taken away from Beatles fans way too soon. However, not many people realized that John Lennon was an artist himself. He attended art school and was extremely amazing at drawing.

Lennon 2

I decided to draw this one with different tones of brown to give it that antique photography appearance. Very similar to the Jimi Hendrix portrait, but took photographs of the process. Such details as the hair, mustache and beard was a development that had to be carefully executed.

Lennon 3

The shading between the different tones of brown on the hair was also a step that had to be completed with caution. Once that step was finished the next challenging task was the blurry background. Continuing to use Prismacolor and the Crescent poster board cotton was also utilized. How can cotton be utilized in art?

John Lennon 1940-1980

By carefully sharpening the pencil with a blade over the drawing and carefully rubbing the color. The darker areas I continued to draw them normally; but the lighter shades of brown had to be accomplished with the cotton.

The Beatles Fan Art: The great art and death clues behind Sgt Pepper and Abbey Road.

Sgt Pepper

Many Beatle fans know the enigma surrounding the death clues in Beatles’ songs and album covers; but many never heard of such a myth. This is where the beauty of art and music connect. Sgt Pepper was no exception as clues where discovered. When I completed these drawings 11 years ago I was so intrigued by the mystery.

One of those mysteries include : If you place a mirror covering the letters of the words “Lonely Hearts” it points at Paul McCartney as it reads “I ONE I HE DIE” (Claiming three Beatles minus one).

Sgt Pepper "The Grave"

It also resembles the grave of Paul McCartney. The hand over his head also displays a symbol of death. There are other clues as well; but Abbey Road (see below) is the most interesting of all.

Abbey Road

Impressive artistically as well as musically Abbey Road shows the following :

1) Paul is out of the step of the other three.

2)He is holding a cigarette on his right hand when he is left handed.

3)His eyes are closed.

4)The Volkswagen Beetle reads “LMW 28 IF” meaning “Linda McCartney Weeps 28 if he was alive”

5) He is barefooted. (Amazing!! Isn’t it?)

6) THE MOST INTERESTING OF ALL ; HOW THEY ARE DRESSED : JOHN IS THE PREACHER, RINGO IS THE UNDERTAKER, GEORGE IS THE GRAVEDIGGER AND PAUL IS THE CORPSE.
