Sorry But WHERE THE HELL IS BILL? this was HIS skit

On this day, April 24th, in 1976: Lorne Michaels came on the air during “Saturday Night Live” (Season 1, episode 18: Raquel Welch and John Sebastian) and offered $3,000 for the Beatles to reunite at the studio and do three songs.

Today’s quotes:
“You divide it up any way you want… If you want to give less to Ringo, that’s up to you.”
“‘She loves you, yeah, yeah, yeah.’ That’s $1,000 right there. You know the words - it’ll be easy.”

Today’s lame old men: John and Paul, who were at the Dakota and decided it was too late and they were too tired. It was the last time they saw each other.

Throwback Thursday: Pieces Of Me by Ashlee Simpson

Singer Ashlee Simpson had the luxury of watching her older sister Jessica Simpson breakthrough in the music industry and that gave her the itch to follow in her footsteps. Her first single Pieces Of Me quickly gained steam for it’s catchy pop-rock sound different from her sisters music. With a simple acoustic guitar, the song fared well for the singer as she took on the catchy hook. Pieces Of Me peaked at #5 on the Hot 100 and was certified Gold. The song put Ashlee Simpson in a controversial and historical moment in Saturday Night Live history as she was embarrassingly was caught lip-syncing on the show. Simpson continued making music having three more top 40 hits. In 2011, she announced she was working on new music but as of today four years later she has yet to release anything. Instead the singer has focused on her personal life where she ended up marrying and having a child with Fall Out Boy member Pete Wentz. Eventually they divorced and Simpson remarried and had another child with actor Evan Ross. Although Ashlee Simpson will always be remembered for the Saturday Night Live fiasco, the singer could proudly say she had a big hit with her breakthrough single Pieces Of Me.
