Getting Back to the Beatles at the Bowl
JUNE 30, 1999 12 AM
Where were you when the Beatles were still together?

Probably here, there and everywhere.

And for one balmy evening, the Hollywood Bowl was full of people who were tempted to remember where they were in their lives when the Beatles were big.
The occasion was the bowl�s 78th season opening-night gala Friday, �Roll Over Beethoven--It�s Beatles Music,� which was a fund-raiser for the Los Angeles Philharmonic Assn.'s summer educational and community programs at the bowl.

Fab Four producer Sir George Martin conducted the Hollywood Bowl Orchestra along with the Bangles, which reunited for the concert, Brad Delp of Boston, Stewart Copeland and Andy Summers of the Police, Trevor Rabin of Yes, Peter Case of the Plimsouls, Adam Duritz of Counting Crows and violinist Pip Clark.

OK, so the bowl wasn�t quite the screamfest it was when KRLA-AM imported the Beatles for their first L.A. appearance 35 years ago.

For Duritz, who sang �She�s Leaving Home,� the concert was an opportunity to sit at the feet of a god of the music industry.
�George Martin is just real nice.
He�d scold me a little bit now and then: �Now Ad, we can�t really play it any faster, so you�ll have to slow down a bit.�
Following a baton and an orchestra is really hard and it turned out what I needed was the harp.
I�ve never asked for more harp before.�
