 Justin Bieber does write most of his songs, so you're obviously making things up because you need more reasons to dislike him. 

Justin Bieber co-writes his own songs. He's got thousands of other people to work with him, while The Beatles wrote all of their stuff alone. (except covers) 

Also, teenage girls do use their ears when they decide on whether or not they like an artist. If they only did use their eyes, then people like Lady Gaga, LMFAO, and Ke$ha wouldn't be half as popular as they are (or were). Just because you don't like what's on the radio doesn't mean nobody else should. What makes your opinions so much better than those of anybody else?

You cant say shit taste bad, because thats just your opinion. Thats exactly how I feel about what you just wrote, lol. But fair enough, you cant really prove someones taste is better than another. And yes, they use their ears, but that Justin Bieber wouldnt have been anywhere as successful as he is now without his looks is no debate. The same goes with The Beatles. Didnt Brian Epstein get obsessed with them because of their looks? especially John Lennon? Im not saying that looks is the ONLY thing that makes artists popular, but it is one reason for it.

If I wanted to hear people compare Justin Beiber to the Beatles, I would've read Youtube comments. If it's really that interesting, make a new topic for it.

Hello, everybody

My name is Mark, and I was born in the month before Sgt. Pepper. Been floating around the site for a few months (bit of a Luddite and only got an internet connection a few months ago) and took the plunge and joined a few days ago. Mainly because I had a question I wanted help with (it's in the Recording and Musicology part of the forum) but have since been roaming the forums and offering my opinions here and there.

What to say about myself?

I grew up in a dysfunctional family in Orpington, on the outskirts of London, (famous for a car advert and the opening lines of a poem by one of the Liverpool Poets, can't remember which right now – "The end of the world shall surely come / In Bromley South or Orpington…"), where the saviour was that there was always lots of music. When I was about 8 I was given Simon and Garfunkel's BOTW, Buddy Holly 20 Golden Greats and an Everly Brothers best of. The girl next door loved Elvis so heard lots of him.

End of 1980 I heard a song on the radio that reminded me of Buddy Holly, and on the 5th or 6th of December found myself in Woolworths buying my first single. "Do you have 'Starting Over'?"

We all know what happened next, and I was off school ill that dreadful day, and the radio was full of songs I had known for years but never quite connected to all being by the same people. I was a lost cause from that day on.

My mum got me R&RM (Vol. 1) for Xmas that year, I got Vol. 2 a few weeks later, and my dad (only good thing he did) got me The Beatles Box for my birthday (which would be my Desert Island album – forget counting the 3 Anthology's album as 1, The Beatles Box was an eight album best of).

Those albums started me off on my journey exploring all things music. I heard "Matchbox" and I wanted to hear where they got it from, and then I wanted to hear where they got if from, till I find myself listening to Blind Lemon Jefferson. I read Lennon saying he loves the B-52s and I want to hear them.

A web of great music I have discovered, forwards and backwards, but with The Beatles always The Beginning and The End.

Other things to say? I'm a sometime poet, used to write a lot, now less so, but quite good when I get it right. Recovering from a rather large brainmelt last year, which involved some time in hospital, following the suicide of a friend I'd known since 1985. Probably saying too much and making you think I'm a little mad. I probably am but not in a bad way.

Sorry this is a bit long. I could say more...

Welcome to the site mj6758. Good to hear youre on the mend after a horrid time. I have the Beatles Box and its a fantastic, tho slightly strange considering what was left off, overview of the beatles music.

Dive right in, everyone posts their thoughts about everything going so feel free (the waters lovely out here in the country).

G'Day!!

              My name is Ben, I am officially a Beatlemaniac... I am from Queensland, Australia, and really enjoying reading the great collection of information that is your forum. I am an accomplished guitarist/vocalist, and have had a love affair with The Beatles since I can remember, my parents loved music :) I am all excited at the moment, as I have just secured tickets to BestFest next year at The Casbah! Long trip from Australia, lol, guess I'll have to ride my Kangaroo huh :)

Also have my tickets for Ringo here in Feb :) I absolutely love the Hamburg days, up until they broke big with Parlophone.. Definitely my fave era.. Loved it all after that too tho, just my personal fave.. Anyway, Hi to everyone "Awaiting on you all" for a reply a-hard-days-night-george-10

 

Cheers, Ben

Welcome to the website Ben! I am also a big fan of the Beatles' Hamburg days. John Lennon did say that none of the other bands could touch the Beatles when they played straight rock at the dance halls and clubs. The Beatles' style was also great during this time period (especially George, he's my favorite!). I hope you like this website as much as I do!ahdn_george_06

I've been viewing this forums for a "while" now. And this is only the first time I dared to participate. Time to introduce myself then.

My name is Gerard Israel Dizon

I am around 9 to 17  years old.

The majority of my playlist consists of the Beatles, and I only play FLAC files (digitally)

I prefer MONO over STEREO

           Let It Be Naked over LET IT BE

            ANALOGUE over DIGITAL

           THE BEATLES over any other band

The other tracks in my playlist include Classical, Jazz,Blues and Rock Music.

  • Paul McCartney
  • Little Richard
  • Chuck Berry
  • Jerry Lee Lewis
  • Aerosmith
  • Beach Boys
  • Dave Grusin
  • Larry Carlton
  • Frederic Chopin
  • Franz Liszt
  • Lemon Pipers
  • Toto
  • Jimi Hendrix

The newest stuff that I have (circa 2012) is Paul McCartney's Kisses on the Bottom album and the Beach Boys' That's Why God Made the Radio album.

I have the Beatles BoxSet in Mono and Abbey Road, Let It Be Naked in Stereo. I also have some bootlegs, anthology recordings, sessions and etc in my playlist (basically the entire discography lol)

Sadly I only have one T-shirt relating the Beatles because t-shirts cost a lot here lol. 

If I had to pick my favourite song or album, I would not be able to do so.

I currently have semi-Arthur hair and cleanly shaven face. Someday, when I grow more facial hair I'll have Paul McCartney's hairstyle (during the late 60's)

I have been met lots of people and sadly their passion is not with the Beatles. Especially with people with my age.

That's basically it about me.

Hi I'm Phil. I was born in Hampshire in 1941 and grew up in London. Went through various youthful transformations....skiffle, Trad, Aldermaston March, art school, trip to India, drugs, Swinging Sixties, marriage, 'respectability', kids, grandkids.... I'm trying to put it all into a book .....it seems like an endless project.

Every now and then I publish something smaller. I just did a book about meeting John Lennon....but maybe this isn't the place to talk about it. I'll put it over on 'pimp my stuff'. Hope you will take a look.   best     Phil

Welcome to Beatles Bible, Gerell and Philip ( and all the others) Please, have an appleapple01

Someone who is actually the same age as the Beatles? Awesome. I wish you could share your experiences with John & co here, but I suppose that might damage your sales! Good luck with your book, though

Thanks minime. I thought about sharing some experiences here but I put it all in the book. Very cheap BTW. If I sell a couple hundred copies I may even make my costs back!

I had to change my Abbey Road avatar because I realised that there's TWO OF US with the same avatar, You Can't Do That, so now I am Jealous Guy because I wanted that avatar.... well not really... I've seen that road before.

Welcome to all the new members. I'm not that old of a Beatles-Bibler myself (joined in October or November I think).

When I'm browsing around the forum I notice at the bottom it tells you who is also in the forum, and among the names of members, there are usually like 30 or 40 nameless, invisible "guests" who have not yet joined.  I always wonder who they are, and if they will ever join.

Well usually some forums have always at least 3 people online all the time, sometimes these are search engine bots. Or probably Beatles Bible has a huge following =D.

Hello! I am BlueMeanie a.k.a Katie. I have been a stalker on this page, for yonks but just never bothered to sign up..until now obviously a-hard-days-night-george-9 I live in Ireland not actually in the Bambi Kino (SHOCK HORROR!!!) And I am seriously considering buying John Lennon's island off the coast of Ireland for €300,000 a-hard-days-night-john-7....okay maybe not but still one can still dream. I am a semi-professional actress and I can play the piano (v. badly) I can not chose my favourite Beatle some days its Ringo, other days George sometimes John but rarely Paul... I am also a huge fan of thenewno2, that is all
