@Beatlesneverdie Welcome! You definitely didn't write too much, great story. I'm sure you'll love it here, lucky you picked up John!

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

I was a little shy about what I'm going to tell you now, so I didn't mention it when I introduced myself, but now I thought "They are the ones who will understand me!!!".

Well, I've already told you that I like writing. I've already published two fantasy books and one of them is called (translating to English, because it's written in Portuguese) John Lennon Never Died and other fantasy short stories. It was the way I found to pay a tribute to the Beatles…

We could have a writers convention.

Hey all, I'm going by the name "Crinsk".  I used to live in a town called Ringoes, no joke.  I "discovered" The Beatles in grade school when one of my teachers played a "history of rock n' roll" video, and, I dunno, when I saw 4 young guys coming off a plane with long roundish hair and beautiful faces, with a backdrop of music I somehow already knew, that was it!

My earliest concrete Beatles memory is hearing Penny Lane – and realising it fully for the first time, hearing every sound and lyric – when I was about 4 or 5, on my way to the doctor, too sick and slumped down to see anything but blue suburban skies.  It made sense.  The song made me feel a lot better.

Once I heard more songs, I realised I knew them all along.  I got a library card, borrowed whatever CDs and books were available.  Soon I even knew trivia.  I tried out for Theatre and sang Yesterday.  Maybe that was too obvious.  But The Beatles really lifted me up.  I was into something that no one else was.  It was strange that one of my classmates had chosen to use "Here Comes The Sun" for his video science project, and someone nudged me, and there was giggling.  I thought they were all making fun of me.  But years later someone told me that he had liked me and put the song in on purpose.  And in thinking about it… he asked me to dance at the school dance… but it never went anywhere.  Imagine a love kindled by The Beatles!

I went nuts when Anthology hit the scene.  "New" Beatles music in MY lifetime?  Wow.

My best friend got hooked on their music, too.  Somehow, her aunt got us tickets to a concert.  Not great seats, but I can proudly say that my very first concert was a Paul McCartney concert.  It was certainly a thrill.

I did a major artwork for my high school, and the Beatles and 60s influence is extremely obvious.  Last I saw, it's still there!  I wore Beatles t-shirts almost every day then, when I wasn't dressed up in my mock-60s clothes.  I was so into it.

In college I discovered a lot of new music and my best friend went away, and so did The Beatles.  I even visited Central Park with someone and very intentionally avoided the Imagine mosaic.  I wanted to graduate from Beatles.  Grow up.  I sold, tossed, or gave away all of my Beatles things, from clippings to records to toys.  Everything.  I have nothing left from that time.  And I've had to leave home, too.

As I need a little sunshine in my life right now, suddenly The Beatles popped into my head and got stuck again.  I've just been to see Rain, and I am slated for 2 upcoming events that I hope to talk about on this forum, amongst much more.  I've been devouring Beatles books as I can, finding CDs that have come out in my hiatus.  Of all things, at one of the places I work, a school kid left a folder behind.  Months passed and I decided it was time to chuck it.  But I looked inside for kicks and decided to read the juvenile version of "Time" that was inside, and… there was a little section on The Beatles, waiting for me.  I almost passed it by.  

It was a sign.  I am a reborn Beatles fan, today, on Sir Paul McCartney's birthday.  It's getting better.

Oh that's very sad, it's still June 18 here but my membership will forever say 19 June :(  I was going to ask, at some point, if this forum is based in England.  I didn't notice I was late.

Still the 18th here too, you think it would register with the date in your time zone because you choose that when you sign up!

Great intro. Sorry you got rid of all your Beatley collection, but glad you're back here with us, I'm sure you'll enjoy the forum!
