Sorry I meant her and I was referring to you.

Yes my avatar is Beatles era Paul but my name  is from Ram.... Any reason you pointed that out?  Or just curious?a-hard-days-night-paul-10

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)

Hi, I finally decided to register, after lurking for a while. Great site, with lots of informations!
I'm always quite nervous when writing online, even in my own language, so sorry if my English isn't very good.

I'm Lucia, from Italy (near Florence). I still feel a bit like a teenager even though I'm turning 29 next month (don't wanna think about it...).

My "obsession" with the Beatles is a recent thing, which is strange, considering my age and the fact that I have an older cousin who likes them since he was little (When I was a kid it seemed weird to me that he could like such an old band... I was totally ignorant and stupid, of course!). Later, in an attempt to get a musical culture, I asked him to record me some of their albums, so I could listen to something more than the occasional greatest hits. I remember listening to the White Album, Rubber Soul and Sgt. Pepper, and liking them but not enough to get really interested. About Sgt. Pepper in particular, I couldn't understand why it was supposed to be so great. I was trying to listen to this music because I had to, beacuse those were some of the best albums of all times according to books and articles, so maybe it wasn't the right approach.

A few years later (not much time ago) I suddenly felt the urge to complete my Beatles collection, I don't know what happened in my head, anyway I'm glad it happened. I already had 5-6 albums, nearly all the important stuff of 1965-69... but I still didn't have Revolver (!) So I immediately purchased it, and this is the album that really got me addicted to the band. Better late than never.
 
Oh, and I finally could fully appreciate Sgt. Pepper. But Revolver will always be my favourite.
Don't ask me about a favourite song, there are too many and never the same (but if you want to know who's my favourite beatle I have to say George...)

Well, I hope I won't disappear after the first post.
