Hello all!  I am a Canadian 'girl' (well, I'm 29) and I love the Beatles (Obviously..  I'm here, aren't I?).   As cheesy as it may sound, their music has changed my life.  It is inspiring and promotes a way of life that I like to live by.  :)  

Specifically, I am also a HUGE Paul McCartney fan.  He's a beautiful man, inside and out.  My spouse and I are basically vegetarian/animal-loving/hippies so he's always been right up my alley.  :)  We had the amazing experience of seeing Paul in concert in Vancouver BC in November.  Three hours at 70 years old!  Outstanding.  My respect for him has soared.  

My spouse always lovingly says of the Beatles, "I'm a Fan, not a Freak".  He's cheekily referring to me, but I'm proud to be a freak.  I recently even got a tattoo of "The End" lyrics on my forearm (in four chunks, going around dogwood flowers).  

Seems like a great group here, glad to meet you all!  :)

"Please don't bring your banjo back, I know where it's been..  I wasn't hardly gone a day, when it became the scene..  Banjos!  Banjos!  All the time, I can't forget that tune..  and if I ever see another banjo, I'm going out and buy a big balloon!"

Hi There

I have been guesting on here for a few days and decided to register, so here is a brief intro of myself

I am a very young 60 years and live in the North West of England. I grew up in the 60's (my teenage years) and first heard the Beatles when they released the Please Please Me single, from then on I was hooked.

I have a decent collection of vinyl records, CD's and bootlegs of the band and their solo recordings, also a fair few books on all things Beatles.

I try not to disect every song looking for wrong notes, out of tune singing etc. I just think that they were the greatest perfomers, musicians and writers of all time and listen to their songs at some time every day.

Thanks!  Seems like a great group.  Of course, because we are Beatles fans!  :)

Looks like her avatar is during the Beatles, the name says otherwise though.

Was a little confused, thanks for clearing that out at least I got something off my mind.

Hello all! :)

I have been stalking the forum for practically a year now, and today I decided, why not? and went ahead and made an account! I am very excited to take part in this website! I first got into the Beatles when a kid in my sophomore class 2 years ago brought in an original copy of Abbey Road and played it in my Geometry class! My teacher was German, and a huge fan, his brother even saw them perform in Hamburg! From there, my friend recommended I watch "A Hard Day's Night," and I was hooked within the first 5 minutes. So here I am! You all seem like AMAZING people, and I am very pleased to meet you all! :)

Here comes ol' flat top...

Big Daddy Tom Donohue here.

Use ta be a big radio guy, ha ha; anyone remember radio?!

Used to be lots of things, now just a …guy!  Still love my records-  have a peeve against the word "vinyl".  We never used to call it "vinyl", right?

They were just "records"!  

I got into collecting records prolly around 1976, when I was 18.  Had the requisite couple hundred before that; what we now refer to as your standard Classic Rock-  Beatles, Stones, Who, Creedence, Janis, Jimi, The Dead, Beach Boys (So Cal boy, after all!), et al.  I guess I have that collector's gene, so when I started discovering different pressings, imports, etc, I gravitated toward collecting different versions of my favorite records. This led to- among many others- collecting Beatles lime-green inner label pressings-  anyone know what the hell I'm talking about?!  a-hard-days-night-george-10 They were only released for about a year, and for a while, were much easier (and more affordable) to find than original pressings.

So I've just posted in the White Album forum, because my current obsession is trying to find out if the discs for my White Album were really from the same era. I don't think the matrix numbers match the low cover number!   Oh, sorry, just got totally wonky there!  Anyway, if you have any idea, pleeeeze let me know!   Thanks! BDTD

Hi, Beatles Bibliacs – I've been lurking around this forum off and on for may be 2 years and I finally decided to take the plunge. Nothing too exciting here, just someone who was born in the midst of Beatlemania and began loving their music from the time I was barely able to place the little 45 records on my sister's record player. Some of my earliest memories consist of hearing Beatles' songs, particularly Lady Madonna and Hey Jude.

While I was in high school in the 80s, most of my friends were crazy over Journey & REO Speedwagon, but I was spending way too much time with my new guitar and Mel Bay chordbook, headphones on, intently trying to pick out chords. The early records where you could isolate guitars to one side were particularly helpful teaching tools. Anyway, never lost my passion for guitar or for Beatles music. Thank deity of your choice that things like GarageBand and YouTube weren't around when I was a teen, or I'd have never left my room.

Anyway, it's nice to be among a group who are so insanely dedicated to this music and appreciate even the slightest minutiae regarding Beatles music. Thanks for having me here. I will do my best to behave (since I'm relatively boring, that shouldn't be a problem)
