BEATLES BUSK-A-THON

Beatles Busk-a-thon

I'm performing EVERY BEATLES SONG on the guitar to raise money for Dementia Revolution.

It's my contribution to Mark Watson's 26.2 hour Comedy Marathon at the Pleasance Theatre, London on Wednesday 27th Feb.

No chord books, no lyric sheets, just me and my memory and my guitar.

I've done some maths, and the total number of songs recorded by the Beatles (not including covers or bootlegs or stuff from the Anthology) is 186. That's just over 9 hours, not including toilet and vocalzone breaks.

Will you sponsor me? If you do, you get to sponsor your favourite Beatles song! Hurry up! All the good ones will get taken, and you'll have to have your name next to Don't Pass Me By.

Actually, genuinely, please do sponsor me. First of all, Dementia is a cause very close to my heart. My grandpa lived with Alzheimer’s for the last years of his life. His slow decline was extremely hard for my whole family - especially my grandma. And second of all, my voice is going to really hurt and my fingers are going to literally bleed.

So, go on. Won't you please please help me? With a little help from my friends across the universe, there'll be a revolution! Don't let me down! Now give me money - that’s what I want! If you never give me your money, then I'm a loser. Hot diggetty Beatles!

Check below to see which songs are still available, put the title of your chosen song in the donation message, and I'll add you to this page!
