Default The Bangles To Be Honoured By Paul McCartney

The Bangles To Be Honoured By Paul McCartney
Wednesday July 28, 2004 @ 02:00 PM
By: ChartAttack.com Staff




The Bangles might not have a lot in common with The Beatles, except for the fact that they're both apparently loved by the people of Liverpool.

Even though they're American and therefore nowhere close to being considered Liverpool natives, the beloved '80s all-female band will receive an honorary induction into the Liverpool Institute Of Performing Arts on Friday (July 30). To sweeten the deal, The Bangles will be personally inducted by the king of the Liverpool scene, Sir Paul McCartney.

According to their website, the band are very excited about meeting the former Beatle. Michael Steele and Vicki Peterson will both attend the ceremony. Unfortunately, bandmates Debbi Peterson (who is expecting a baby) and Susanna Hoffs (who recently had a baby) won't be able to attend.

So how did The Bangles score such an honour from an institution in Liverpool? Well, the LIPA people like to honour artists who have not only inspired them, but have also given advice and help to the school's students, a criteria which The Bangles have apparently met. The Bangles are the first full band to receive the honour.

In other Bangles news, the band's recent reunion tour spawned last year's studio album Doll Revolution, and according to an interview posted on the band's website, there are plans to continue on. If you're looking for the oldies but goodies, the group also just released an Essential Bangles greatest hits CD.

I think that I figured out why Sir Paul will be honoring The Bangles. Rusty Anderson played guitar on the The Bangles hit 'Walk Like an Egyptian'.

What an honor to be honored by Paul McCartney!

I can't think of a higher endorsement.

That's great! Congradulations to The Bangles and Congradulations to Debbi Peterson who is expecting a baby and Susanna Hoffs who recently had a baby!

I use to listen to The Bangles when I was a little girl. Heck, sometimes I still catch myself singing their songs.

I wonder if any of Pauls kids were fans of The Bangles at one point of time?

They were hugely inspired by The Beatles, according to their episode of VH1 Behind The Music. They were inspired to play instruments and form a band after John was killed, they named themselves The Bangles since it sounded kinda-sorta similar to Beatles, and Susanna Hoffs uses Rickenbacker guitars.
