Rocky’s Rock Facts

An interesting fact about the final chord to the song, A Day In The Life, by The Beatles. The last chord was played by 10 different hands on three different pianos simultaneously. John Lennon, George Martin, Ringo Starr, Paul McCartney and Mal Evan’s hands produced this work of art that is at the end of A Day In The Life.

The death of a friend of the band inspired the pivotal line about the man who “blew his mind out in a car.” A core inspiration for the song – specifically John Lennon’s opening sequence, about a man who “blew his mind out in a car” – pertained to the death of Tara Browne, who had died in a car accident on December 18th, 1966.

A Day in the Life” was the first song recorded for what was intended as a concept album about childhood in Liverpool.

Roadie Mal Evans “played” the alarm clock heard on the song. 

The BBC banned “A Day in the Life” because of its central line: “I’d love to turn you on.

The band recorded the song almost exclusively at night.

The song is very John Lennon, someone who is missed around the world to this day.
