hello to all you fans of the greatest group that there has ever been or ever will be.
Growing up in the late seventies early eighties I was fortunate enough to have two older sisters who were Beatle crazy. I caught the fever and continue to love thier music. I love all the other music from the sixties but it starts and ends with the Beatles.

Hello everyone. I'm not really a "Beatles fan" per se, in the sense of a "Beatlemaniac" or being in some kind of club. I do rate the Beatles high on my list of favorite bands, however, and in certain ways I see they are the best. Many of their songs are solid gold, inimitably exquisite.
I've been through that phase of playing Beatles albums a lot many years ago, then growing bored with it and moving on to other music. Only recently have I felt ready to revisit those old albums, and it's great fun to rekindle them. I like to play acoustic guitar along with music I like, and often I play "bass" on the lower 3 strings. Recently I learned the chords to "Hello, Goodbye" and added that to my hobby, playing bass notes along with the song.
I also rank James Taylor, Paul Simon, Gordon Lightfoot, Stevie Wonder and Phoebe Snow high on my list, and I also really love Santana (especially the first five albums), as well as the first six Chicago albums, the first four War albums, the first three Osibisa albums, and in the jazz realm -- Dave Brubeck, Herbie Hancock, Ramsey Lewis, and Herbie Mann. Frankly, I listen to these artists (and that includes post-Beatles McCartney!) far more than the Beatles…
But I find myself fascinated by Beatles trivia, and so I'll likely linger on this site quite often.

I have been reading this site off and on over the last few months and decided it was time to join the group. I was too young to appreciate The Beatles' American TV "bow" on The Ed Sullivan Show, but I do recall an excitement in the air coming from my older brothers and sister. It wasn't until i was the ripe old age of 6 when my brother Rudy introduced to me to The Beatles and before long I was singing their tunes as I swung on the backyard swing set. My oldest brother even had a band called The Rubber Souls.
Flash forward many years and I'm in high school when a friend gives me a Christmas present of the album Imagine. That pretty much did it for me. As an actor I hold as my inspirations James Dean, Humphrey Bogart and Canada Lee; but as a singer and occasional songwriter, John Lennon was the inspiration and his inspirations also – the list begins with Buddy Holly, and most of you here, I'm sure, know the rest.
My current favorite song is "If I Fell", the home demo version. It is amazing on so many levels, not the least of which are the "Holly hiccups" that didn't make the final version.
I hope I'm able to contribute some to these forums and link to articles I've written about The Beatles and John Lennon (where appropriate, of course!) and lastly to continue to enjoy the wide ranging discussions contained herein.
"One, two, three, four…!"

I completely misread 'that'sanicehat.com' and was wondering what sanice hats had to do with the beatles.
welcome to the site Victoria. Glad you got a beatles luchbox instead of Elvis. I think most people here would have caused a scramble ensuring they got the beatles.

When I get bored, I type random things into the browser, such as that'sanicehat.com, and that is how I discovered this website. I decided to become a member just for fun. This website is very insightful, creative, and reliable. Thank you Joe!
Great that you stumbled upon the site! Glad you like it, and do stick around and join in the discussions.

My name is Linde and I'm from the Netherlands
Just wanting to clarify: My name is Linde. Not Linda or Lindy. The E is kinda pronounces as uhh.
Anyway, I discovered the Beatles through my parents. It's actually one of the first music-related memories I have. I don't really know which song I heard first, but I liked it. I was about 4 I think. After that I sorta forgot about them, but when I became a teen I started putting some songs on my iPod again and there was some Beatles, not a lot though. But then this year, in June or so, I saw something Beatles related on tv and just got the urge to download everything and I wanted to know everything about them. So I became a fan.
I've been lurking in here for a while, but I didn't want to sign up. I just did anyway, 'cause I couldn't resist

Hello! I've been lurking for a couple of weeks, and decided to introduce myself. I became a Beatles fan when I was 8 in the late '70s when I caught reruns of the cartoon. I wasn't allowed to listen to pop music at the time – classical music only – so it became a badly-kept secret that I was cheating the rules by watching the show. I only had two albums – Help! borrowed from my father's collection, and Yesterday and Today – the one album I was allowed to buy (I took the opportunity seriously and chose a compilation). As a kid, my favorite songs were Eleanor Rigby and Yesterday, probably because of classical music leanings.
I kept up with Paul's solo career during the 80s, but due to the childhood musical restrictions, the fact the cartoon ended after "Revolver" and financial limitations, I didn't get a chance to familiarize myself with latter-Beatles music (which I always called "druggie Beatles") until fairly recently.
Since then I've been doing a lot of catch-up! My all-time favorite since college has been Norwegian Wood, but I'm all over the place after that. Right now I'm listening a lot to Tomorrow Never Knows, I Want You So Bad, Mother Nature's Son and You Know My Name (Look Up the Number), plus early songs like Yes It Is, A Taste Of Honey and Don't Bother Me.
I realize my memories of the Beatles will forever be tied to that cartoon. I still see sing-along animations in my head when I listen to the early music. It took me forever to reconcile real George's voice with fake George.
Thanks for providing the forum, it's been entertaining!
