I don't wanna go overboard, but I've created LOTS of Beatles-related artwork. Just say the word and I'll share some more!

First of all, welcome to our happy group!  It sounds like you'll fit right in, sounds like you know a fair bit about the boys and their music :) 

Second, there is a thread where it would probably be ok to post all your artwork, or at least the best of it.  It's in this topic, All Together Now, thread name is 'Beatles photo gallery'.  I'm not positive if your own artwork would be appropriate – I'd love to see some – but a moderator might think otherwise.  I'd try one, and see what response you get (unless someone posts the definitive rule here). The worst that can happen is a gentle reminder or possibly move the post to a more appriate thread/topic).

If it's not allowed, you can always find the "Pimp yourself" thread where (as I understand it) people compare collections or trade or just brag about their stuff or something, Ive never actually been there being somewhat of a newbie myself.  The only hard and fast rule I've come across is, don't post pointers to bootleg/officially released free copies of music in a thread.  Discussion of bootlegs is ok, but dissemination thereof is not.

Last but not least, Eleanor Rigby is one of my favorite Beatles song (There's about 30 that are tied for #1 lol).

Half of what I say is meaningless...

Pimp Your Stuff is for posting anything you've created. It's where you can post ads for your stuff, if you've written a book or made a film or album or something

Hey, Gang!

 

Russell Walks here – Artist, illustrator, and long-time Beatles fan. 
My favorite Beatle is currently George, but it changes often, as does my favorite song/album. MY first Beatles album wasn't an album at all. It was an 8-track, the second half of the "Blue" album. I remember wishing I could fast-forward past "The Ballad Of John And Yoko".
I have three daughters and a son, all of whom love The Beatles. Currently, we play a game where I play a song, and they try to guess who's singing lead. Ringo and George are the easiest for them to i.d. – They have trouble distinguishing between John and Paul.

I started looking at this forum sometime around 2009, when I began working on a book about The Beatles, called the White Album. I wanted to know what the general consensus was about a few different things: What seemed to be the most popular song, for instance, or what was people's favorite era? As I should've suspected, there really isn't one definitive answer, which I guess makes sense, but which still surprises me. I mean, if you ask people what Springsteen's best album is, you'll hear "Born to Run" more often than anything else. If you ask the same question about The Beatles, you'll hear "The Beatles" as much as you'll hear "Sgt. Pepper". 

Anyway, that's sort of what the book's about – That and how a bunch of different artists interpret their favorite Beatles tunes. I don't want to break any forum rules, so I won't put a link here, although there is one in the "Pimp Your Stuff" section.

Thanks for the opportunity to participate, everyone. I'm looking forward to engaging as a member as opposed to just listening as a guest.

@walks Welcome to the forum! We'll be looking forward to you engaging also! And I'm interested in seeing this artwork also so I guess I'll check the Pimp Your Stuff section later…

If I spoke prose you'd all find out, I don't know what I talk about.

Hello

i am currently living in Gloucestershire and have done all my life..I love the Beatles! Why else would I be here!?I first got into them listening from a very young age with memories of 'because' filling the household being played by my dad. Ever since an early age I have been mesmerised and totally in love with John Paul George and Ringo. a-hard-days-night-john-4ahdn_paul_02a-hard-days-night-george-10a-hard-days-night-ringo-12 

My favourite break was To Liverpool visiting the cavern club and john and Paul's houses!I'm totally obsessed and I was definitely born in the wrong era! How I wish I grew up as a teen in the 60s

May I humbly introduce to you all..ME!!

Me is..Todd! From the frozen tundra of Wisconsin in the good Ol' USA!!!

Experienced a wonderful welcome with my first post, "Yesterday", so thanks!! man..I don't know where to begin. I'll be brief too. I'm single, 46 and according to what I've read, on my date of birth Paul and crew filmed "The Fool On The Hill" For Magical Mystery Tour. 9-8-67.  The coolest part of the whole film! I've been in love with The Beatles since pretty much day 1 of birth. My aunt and uncle gave me their record collection when I was like 7 or 8!! Don't worry they were duplicates as they both had the same record collection! All of their Beatles, Stones and Who LP's!! I've rebuilt that collection over the years, but I'm eternally grateful for them for instilling my love for the best music on the planet..with The Beatles on top! My aunt claims she saw The Beatles in Milwaukee in 1964. My uncle claims he saw Ringo waving at him from a limo at the same show!! I believe my aunt more!!

OK..favorite song..that's impossible!!

..I can give you my 2 favorite albums. Rubber Soul and Revolver!! Like Ringo said, they found themselves in the studio with both of those albums and for me it was their creative peak.  Yes Sgt Pepper changed popular music, but those 2 prior albums, for me, are who the Beatles were musically! They worked the closest on those projects in terms of studio creativity!! Don't get me wrong though..all of their albums are in their own way brilliant!!

OK..fave movie..A Hard Days Night!!

Favorite Beatle..that's hard..it's between Paul and George. Being a musician myself, I love Paul, but I loved George's quiteness and humility. And man what a great guitar player on top of that!!

Fave promo film…Probably Paperback Writer/Rain.  They just looked SO cool during that period and it was beautifully filmed…Michael Lindsey Hoog I believe..!!  

OK..I could go on, but as I said I'd be brief! So true to my word..That'll be it for now!! But I'm looking forward to connecting, and sharing!!  Cheerios!!

Hi everyone! I'm Amy from New Zealand and I just joined the site :) I'm quite a new Beatles fan I guess I started really listening to their music about 18 months ago when a friend played Abbey Road to me and the medley just blew me away! I've since bought all the albums and been reading various books but there are still a lot of bootlegs and things I haven't heard/read so I'm just keen to learn more about the fab four.

 

This is a great site with lots of info, thanks to everyone who set it up and makes it what it is :)

 

Gonna go try and figure out how to add a pic to my profile now! See you round the forums *waves*

Hello, I guess, I'm Bob! (I'm not really called Bob cos I'm actually a girl but all my friends call me that). I've been listening to the Beatles since I was around 2 and I saw Yellow Submarine on tv and I was instantly hooked. Since then I've been obsessed but I'm constantly frustrated because all of my friends Beatle knowledge is incredible scarce and upsetting and therefore I've had nobody to discuss Beatle-esque things with.

I hope to be adding my meaningless and poorly informed comments on a thread near you soon.

If anyone cares:

Favourite Beatle: George

Favourite Album: Rubber Soul

Favourite Song: For No One / While My Guitar Gently Weeps

Favourite Film: A Hard Day's Night.

Howdie. Good to have you here, you've come to the right site, BB is a fantastic site. I look forward to your "meaningless and poorly informed comments"; you'll fit right in.ahdn_george_06 

Out of interest are you called Bob due to Blackadder (still damn funny after all these years and repeat viewings)?
