Ciao All

I was just looking for some Beatle merch one day at work (on my down time of course) when i ran into this site and forum which was pretty awesome to me as a Beatle fan. Im 24 from delaware, working in a call center, ive always had the Beatles music around in one form or another with my mom and aunts growing up in the 1960s, so i knew alot of the popular songs but was never really that into them. In 2007 i became a huge fan, my mother who goes to nyc alot invited me and my aunt to go with her. While she and her friends went shopping me and my aunt who rarely talk got to hang out. i knew about john lennon so i wanted to go to strawberry fields, we went there and had a long deep talk, all the while about 2 benches down an older man was playing on a small guitar and singing the most pleasant lyrics i had heard, he kept playing this song repeating the same 2 verses over and over along with imagine which i already knew about. when i got home i googled the lyrics i remembered to what turned out to be not only my favorite beatles song but my favorite song period, 'In My Life', the lyrics just took me away. The next day i bought Rubber Soul followed by every other album here and there, and now just starting to get the anthology collection which i love. ive gone to strawberry fields every year since for johns bday and memorial of his passing, which this past year was amazing especially on his bday.

My favorite beatle is john, his songs i can relate to the most as a beatle and as a solo artist. i love his courage to wear his feelings on his sleeve and just think he is a very interesting person. i love paul, ringo, and george as well, george and jimi are my favorite guitarists of all time. my favorite albums are revolver, help, and Rubber Soul but that could easily change by tomorrow. my favorite songs are, in my life, blackbird, rain, something, hide your love away, Across The Universe, Real Love, girl, here there & everywhere and many more to list but those just my favs off the top of my head.

'Ello! a-hard-days-night-john-6I just happened to stumble across this forum when I googled "You know you're a Beatles fan when..."  and I thought it looked pretty... fab. Well, let's see... to introduce myself... besides the Beatles I LOVE acting, playing piano (I got the full scores for Christmas so I'm currently learning Lady Madonna and Martha My Dear a-hard-days-night-george-6), writing, etc. Oh, and I love these smileys. I'm definitely gonna be overusing 'em. a-hard-days-night-paul-11 I guess that's it for now. Hai thar.

O hai! I love your screen name! Now all we need is someone willing to be called "You'reASwine," and I'll be greatly amused!

Welcome to the board. We try to have a lot of fun here. :) apple01

I would love to reply to you all personally but I just haven't enough pens!   We hope you've enjoyed listening to our records, as much as we've enjoyed melting them!

greatest experience was going to see Paul McCartney live at the Isle of WightFestival 2010, waited 10 hours without food, drink or toilet breaks to remain at the front, just feet away, only time, I've ever been starstruck. Incredible

Any if you want to know more just ask!


You weren't too star struck to get pictures, were you?

Check out the Zigtionary to decipher our lexicon. (Not that it'll help, but it's a start...a-hard-days-night-john-6)

Unfortunately not as he was the very last act on stage of the festival as he was headlining, and by then my camera had run out of battery. all i got was poor quality phone footage of him coming on to the stage with his band, and you can't really tell it's him and it's shaky and loud cus I was shouting and waving!
