Beatles Anniversary Brings Back ‘Platinum Heroes’

It’s been a week since Paul and Ringo reunited at the Ed Sullivan Theatre and if you’re still looking for a Beatles fix, check this piece out put together by Hamilton’s Tom Krawiec using some well placed clips with a Bruce Foster song called “Platinum Heroes.”

This song, written by Foster from Oceanport, in a laundry mat in 1977. It may be the best Beatles tribute song ever. In fact, it was so good that John Lennon was touched by it.

Foster’s ode to the Fab Four, was featured on  his album “After The Show”. Released as a single,  debuted on the Billboard chart July 2, 1977 and stayed there for 5 weeks peaking at #63. The song was a NY area radio favorite spurring contests to name The Beatles song bits he worked into his song. ‘Platinum Heroes’ was also under strong consideration to be used as the closing number for the Broadway multimedia spectacular “Beatlemania”.  I used to play it all the time at Brookdale and on the old ‘Beatles Lunch Break”  Hope you enjoy it as much as I do.
