Classic production...pure class. Haven't watched it for years though.
Not as good as it was. Many a decent drama writer cut their teeth on Coronation Street in years gone by.

Quite a few people in it live in the area around me, you see them occasionally at the shops on a Saturday. The Rosie Webster character was played by the daughter of someone I used to work with, never met her though.

Archie Street is no more
Although there are expensive leafy areas around Monton and Worsley, Salford has mostly been a bit grim since the day it was built. The local poet John Cooper Clarke said as a child all he aspired to do was leave the place as soon as he was old enough to steal a car.

A lot of private housing high rise development is spreading out from central Manchester into Salford now and it’s a rapidly changing place

Always felt they tried too hard to be the Beatles, as most did at the time to be fair.
They were dreaming.

True pros know the Beatles were special.

By that I mean people like Bjorn Ulvaeus and Benny Anderson, and Graham Nash, just for starters. Those duded knew how to write a song and they were in awe of the Beatles.

Not that many great groups that had multiple songwriters like the Beatles. The Eagles, Queen, Fleetwood Mac, the Stones are there although it was Jagger/Richards.

In the first couple of years after they broke up they sold more records as a total for the four individuals than they did as a group.

One of the reasons why George wanted to leave was because he had 20 songs written in 1969 but he could only put 2 on an album.

It was a 'what might of happened moment', George and John were talking about doing their solo stuff and coming together occasionally to do Beatles projects. When Paul heard about it years later he thought it was a great idea.

Peter Jackson told him...he found the discussion on film...Paul seemed shocked when Jackson told him...

However as an example the Eagles did better after they broke up...or Henley and Frey did anyway. Henley came out with some great stuff:

Henley and Frey were fairly cutthroat when the band reunited. Because their careers were fairly successful as solo artists, they negotiated a bigger percentage than the rest of the band. Walsh had success also with some hits and producing a herbs album among other things, but not the success of the other two.

Cut throat is a very mild world. They were both a couple of genuine hard bastards. Great musicians though.

Joe Walsh was hampered by drugs and alcohol. I think the Herbs guys helped him get off the mind altering substances.

From all accounts a very funny guy, especially when pissed, with a chainsaw, in a hotel room!!
