Hello everyone! My name is Dom, and I'm a huge Beatlemaniac. I was born in the late 90's, and I believe I first properly discovered the Beatles in the summer of 2010. Since the days of me listening to Yellow Submarine and With A Little Help From My Friends via YouTube almost two years ago, the Beatles have genuinely changed my life and have inspired me to learn the guitar. They have opened my eyes to music as a whole, and I also enjoy their solo careers immensely. Although I only have hard copies of the Red & Blue albums, I have since bought plenty of other songs from iTunes that are absent on them, and one of my favourite books of all time is "Shout! The True Story of The Beatles" by Philip Norman. I couldn't possibly choose who my favourite Beatle is, but I particularly idolise John and George, because of their notable "no nonsense" attitude. Like others, I sometimes wish I could have been born early enough to witness Beatlemania first-hand during the 60's, and, after reading the aforementioned biography and seeing Nowhere Boy for example, I also think 50's Liverpool, while they were growing up, is a fascinating chapter in their history. How did I get into the Beatles? Well, along with wanting to find out more about this mythical band that I kept hearing about, I also remember finding out that Ringo Starr, who narrated Thomas the Tank Engine during the 80's, was their drummer. Thomas were a huge part of my formative years, and even now, unusual as it may sound makes me feel wonderfully nostalgic if I ever watch the classic series. So I guess a little blue steam engine was one of the ways I ended up discovering the Beatles!

My other interests include dinosaurs & palaeontology (huge fan of the Jurassic Park franchise), Doctor Who and good films/music. Thanks for reading!

Hey, guys! I'm Courtney--and, although "Dipsy" is my avatar name, it's actually my real nickname. So call me whatever: technically, they're both my real names haha. I'm 17 years old at the moment, but my 18th birthday is coming up in less than two weeks. I'm from Clarksville, Tennessee, and I am (obviously) a HUGE fan of The Beatles: this website is seriously like the best thing since sliced bread!

I'll be going off to college in Nashville in a few weeks to major in Psychology and Sociology, so perhaps I didn't exactly discover this site at the most convenient of times haha. I can totally see myself being distracted during class by forum curiosities...sounds like I'll just need to exercise some self control, eh? I plan on working for the Peace Corps as soon as I'm finished with college; so when that time comes around, you guys may not hear from me for a couple of years. But...I will be back!

Everyone who knows me describes me as a "modern- day hippie", and they couldn't be more correct. I'm a pacifist, creative writer, photographer, and conceptual artist. I hope to one day also become a peace activist: well, I suppose I already am--in my own small way. People oftentimes tell me I was born in the wrong time period because of all of these reasons, not to mention the fact that my second love is Bob Dylan and indie music.

I think my love for John Lennon may be equivalent to Mith's love for George Harrison, so be prepared for some girlish admiration. a-hard-days-night-george-10

I'm in constant thought, so my answers in the forum may be extraordinarily detailed and, at times, unconventional. So be prepared!

I have been a fan of The Beatles since I was fourteen years old. The first CD I ever purchased was a scratched copy of Please Please Me from a Kentucky flea market for $2. And, much to my embarrassment, the only reason I purchased it was to play at a British-themed birthday party. I remember thinking that I needed British music, and The Beatles were British, right? I do, however, remember being fascinated by the CD cover for some reason: all the way home--about an hour drive--I was turning it over and over in my hands, fixated on the picture of these four suit-clad guys peering down from above. Why did the cover catch my interest so much? I'll never know. Anyways, I got home and immediately started listening to it...and I hated it! It was just so old and so outdated. But I wound up playing it at the party anyway because, like I said, I needed some British music. When it came time to open gifts, my friend Mary gave me what looked like a wrapped CD. I opened it to find that it was 1. Man, did that CD change my life! Please Please Me may not have left a very good impression on me, but was a different story. And my love only grew from there, eventually leading me to fall in love with Please Please Me shortly afterward. Needless to say, I've never been the same since.

So after that mini-"how-Courtney-came-to-love-The-Beatles"-bio, there's only one thing left for me to say: I'm really excited to finally be a part of The Beatles Bible, and I can't wait to meet you all!

"I'm not going to change the way I look or the way I feel to conform to anything. I've always been a freak. So I've been a freak all my life and I have to live with that, you know? I'm just one of those people."
