Japanese Beatles Cover Band- Hold Your Hand-The BeaTrips
Scary world of extreme fame
#1
Life, some say, is a series of binary choices, the outcomes of which somehow reveal what we’re like as people. Betty or Veronica? John Lennon or Paul McCartney? The Beatles or the Rolling Stones?

The Beatles or the Monkees?

Of course, the correct answer is the Beatles and the Monkees. The Monkees may have been a TV invention created to capitalize on the success of the four Liverpudlians, but the two bands knew and respected each other. They were both part of that rarified, exciting, scary world of extreme fame. And, in their different ways, they each created some pretty good music.

Which is why it’s nice that there will be a Monkees tribute Monday as part of the holiday weekend’s big Beatles fest at National Harbor, Abbey Road on the River. A Beatles tribute band called the Blue Meanies will do the honors, and sitting in with them will be David Alexander, a multi-instrumentalist who toured with both Davy Jones and Mickey Dolenz and will soon go on the road with the remaining Monkees.

“The funny thing is, I was a Monkees fan as a little kid before I knew about the Beatles,” David, 47, told me from Lynn, Mass. “Since I learned about the Beatles around age 14, they were it. When I first started hanging out with Davy, we would just spend our time singing Beatles songs together. That goes for Mickey, too.”

The BeaTrips play the #1 Beatles hit" I Want To Hold Your Hand" during the three day event in Louisville, Kentucky- Abbey Road On The River in 2005.
