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.
