The Library of Congress is full of wonderful treasures, and today it released a new chestful: a collection of interviews on topics such as sex, drugs and rock and roll. Included is Paul McCartney relating how pot and other drugs boosted the Beatles' creativity: “Sgt. Pepper owes a lot to drugs, to pot. That was us getting into that. It was rather innocent compared to what you talk about these days. It was very innocent. It was never seriously heavy stuff. Things got heavy later with one or two of us. Then, it was quite mild.

I was already a huge Beatles fan when the group performed at the Baltimore Civic Center on Sept. 13, 1964. So that's why my Catonsville friends were surprised to learn where I spent that evening: at home. Those same friends were again surprised about 10 years later when I told them how I had met Paul McCartney by accident (well, sort of). Let me connect the dots between those two stories. I became an instant fan of The Beatles after hearing their music on Baltimore WCAO-AM radio in late 1963.

Happy 12/12/12! Enjoy the quirky numerical day while it lasts because it won't happen again for another hundred years. (Or never if the Mayan Apocalypse actually happens) Possibly fueled by this unique bit of numerology, the Internet is buzzing with news this morning. Beatle's guru Ravi Shankar is dead, the pope is an overeager Tweeter and  North Korea is making everyone mad again. And in a lunch time update, Paul McCartney is reportedly fililng in for Kurt Cobain as Nirvania reunites for tonight's huge Hurricane Sandy benefit concert.

dTC Paul McCartney: Many Years From Now," by Barry Miles. Henry Holt. 654 pages. $27.50.At 55, Paul McCartney still has the star power to make people scream, as witnessed last month when he played a new classical piece in New York.McCartney apparently felt he needed another forum for his Beatles-era memories, hence this 650-page biography. "Many Years From Now.""Many Years From Now" is as close to an autobiography as we'll likely get from McCartney, and much of the outpourings are interesting and enjoyable, particularly the details of his early life, how he met the pals who would become the world's most famous pop group and his days in '60s London, living in the big house of girlfriend Jane Asher's parents.

Concert promoters are singing the blues as an off-key summer looms. The concert business is trying to head off another rained-out season by lowering some ticket prices and sending out baby boomer favorites and touring vets like the Eagles, Fleetwood Mac and Aerosmith partnered with Kiss. Concert organizers, who depend on the summer to generate as much as two-thirds of their annual take, are also looking to cut costs by writing smaller checks to artists. But persuading acts with big appetites to take less hasn't been easy.

When Hunter Hayes, the 20-year-old sensation just nominated as the Academy of Country Music's Best New Artist, has a day to himself, the first thing he does is find a music store. "I'm obsessed with gear," Hayes said recently on the phone. Look at the liner notes of his 2011 self-titled album and it's clear to see why: Hayes can play everything in the store. On the album, the self-taught Hayes plays 22 instruments, including the clavinet (an electronic keyboard) and the accordion. After opening for Taylor Swift last summer, Hayes hit the road for his own headlining venture, the Most Wanted Tour, which stops by the Recher Theatre for a sold-out show tonight.

I don't have time for a full review, but I do want to alert viewers to the premiere tonight on HBO of director Martin Scorsese's "George Harrison: Living in the Material World. " This is one of the most ambitious and daring biographical films that I have ever seen on TV. I am not a big Beatles fan. And of the Beatles, Harrison was my least favorite. But Scorsese helped me understand, appreciate and ultimately care more than I expected to for Harrison and the challenging journey the guitarist chose to make of his life.

I will be honest, I don't know which of these two I like less -- Piers Morgan or Christine O'Donnell. Here's video of her walking off his show Wednesday after he questioned her about gay marriage and then asked why she was acting "so weird. " Call it mutual exploitation by two low-level pop culture hustlers. After a disaster of a Senate run, she needs to do something to cut through the clutter and try to get some attention for a new book that no one in their right mind should want to buy. He needs to do something besides spending every other day trying to knock down new allegations about what he knew and/or approved when it came to phone hacking and other unethical acts while he was a tabloid editor in the UK. The latest allegation involving a phone message from Paul McCartney is far from being put to rest despite Morgan's latest bursts of bravado and denials.

The South County Community Concert Association closed its season with a concert that rocked the walls of the Southern High School auditorium. Revolution: The Beatles Tribute packed in a large audience, some of whom were major Beatles fans while others concluded they were fans only when they realized how many of the songs they knew. "I loved seeing the joyful response to familiar Beatles music that the performers played and sang so capably. It seemed we were really hearing the Beatles play and appreciated the music even more from hindsight," said longtime SCCA volunteer Betty Knupp.

TODAY, WHILE many are out returning gifts or catching year-end bargains, let's muse on Robert Redford's words in his most recent Sundance catalog of merchandise: "Holidays again. Forgive me while I dodge the rumble of the million-footed throngs that have succumbed to the marketing ether for Christmas and its days. Can we, without disappointing the children and others who long for the surprise of gift giving, just look to a different value to digest?" One might say -- if in a jaundiced mood -- that this is a little holier-than-thou, appearing in a catalog of things to buy!
