Welcome to the forum, Scoun, Clotx, and Johnnys my love.

Clotx, does that stand for anything or mean something? Enjoying your posts.

Johnnys my love, always pleased to see new John fans here. Too many Paul and George posters here for my liking (though I love them all dearly a-hard-days-night-paul-10a-hard-days-night-george-10). Look forward to your contributions. Jump right in and get your feet wet. We're a pretty friendly bunch on the whole. And thanks for making yours a proper introduction!

My name's Claudia but a lot of friends call me Clau or something like clod and i don't know haha I just figured it out!

   Hello, my names Julia and you'll have to excuse me, I'm rather shy. Also I'm a writer so this should be fairly long. I've loved the Beatles since I was a young child and an amazing music teacher decided to teach five year olds about music by using the song "Ticket To Ride". I came home on that day oh so many years ago humming that tune and my father heard me and let me listen to a whole bunch of albums by them. I didn't become the fanatic I am over them until my teenage years when I really started to get into there music and research them. Now, silly as it seems they're like a group of brothers to me and I can imagine what they might say in different situations and such. I am writing a book that does center some what around them and while doing that I sometimes used this site for research. I been wanting to join a Beatles forum for some time now, since my friends are tried of hearing about 'the boys'(the Beatles) as they aren't fans. I decided ranting to people who also love the Beatles may do me some good and take me away from the constant rant of hating modern music. I belong to another generation I believe and you'll have to forgive my old soul talking.

 

So with that out of the way as you can imagine my favorite Beatle is John Winston Lennon(I don't usual add the ono part to his name no offense). It was originally that way but for the longest time it was Paul. I've been on George and Ringo kicks but my thing with Paul started to fade when I had this crazy dream about John which basically involved me choosing him over Paul in a very touching way. I got in to John because I love how he's such a real person and so artistic. I still do have a lingering obsession with Paul though, and who doesn't I mean he's adorable! But I think in all though John's my favorite I love all the boys, in fact the only one who's personality and character I haven't quiet figured out yet is Ringo but I hope that changes soon. So yah that's pretty much me on the Beatles without making it as long as that essay I did for English.

Welcome! The book sounds like a wonderful idea! apple01

Anyway, what do you mean, mja? You can't possibly have too many George fans! :D

So we have a Ringo fan then?  I love Ringo.  Paul is my favourite, obviously, but I do love them all.  a-hard-days-night-john-1a-hard-days-night-paul-8ahdn_george_08ahdn_ringo_09heart

G'Day  - I've been visiting this site for months now, just 'looking things up'  because it's got great info. and has a great feel. I have finally jumped in to the Forum (very nervously) and have started swimming furiously! What got me in eventually was having no one else enough of a Beatle fan to discuss them with.

I fell in love when I watched Anthology on TV in 1995(?) I had never really taken much notice before then but by the end of that ten or eleven hours, I was gone….completely and utterly. An epiphany!  How I could not have appreciated them all that time, I'll never know. It wasn't just the music, though a lot of that was a complete revelation, but them personally. Four interesting, intelligent, creative and very funny lads who came together and created magic – a collaboration much greater even than the sum of their parts.

A few years ago, we had a boarder who was a musician, and Beatles afficianado, who gave me an greater insight into the genius of their music. For me, the discovery process still goes on – I love hearing and reading what others have already discovered and the reasons why they love/hate a particular song/album/book/Beatle.

If I had to choose a favourite Beatle it would probably be George, but I love and admire different things about all of them. Like most of us! they weren't perfect human beings, but the bottom line is, their music makes me feel good and I'll always be grateful for that.heart

Welcome LadyBay!  I too am sort of a late bloomer discovering, or rediscovering the Beatles.  I really dug the White Album many years ago, as well as Sgt. Pepper's, Revolver and Rubber Soul; and the Help! collection gave me a great mood -- but then I let something like 10 or 15 years go by without listening to them anymore.  I felt like that chapter was done, there was no point in listening to them anymore, I should just "move on". 

In the last year, I joined this site and I began re-listening, and it's amazing how excellent so much of it is, in such a variety of ways.

These are just general broad brush strokes summing up my thoughts; much more details can be found by anyone who wants to look up some of my 1000+ posts on various topics here.

Hi, my name is Carolyn, though my friends call me "McCartney." I am fortunate to be surrounded with a group of friends who are musicians and who are Beatles fanatics. I have some friends who are in a Beatles cover band on Friday nights here and am honored to have the duty of playing the alarm clock in the song, "A Day In The Life." The Beatles are very important in my life…and I am very glad I found this Forum. I love nothing better than discussing all things Beatles. Oh, I am teaching myself the guitar and am trying to learn all the songs they did (well, except for Revolution #9!)

Very cool!   There are many other sound effects in other songs (e.g., Yellow Submarine)…

Hello everyone. I'm Zach, and I'm new, but I've been looking around on this site and forum for years (it has some amazing information). I'm surprised that I never joined forum until now. I'm a young songwriter who has always looked up at the Beatles for inspiration. I don't know what I'd do if I had to go a day without listening to them. I can honestly say that I will never get tired of the same 219 songs! (Except Dig It and Maggie Mae. Grrrrr… Spector…)

Hello all. Longtime Beatle fan, host of a Beatles show at the radio station I'm employed at (and yes, this site has been a goldmine for both show topics and tidbits), and otherwise often exhausted husband and dad. Not much else to say for now.

So I heard I was supposed to say a little about myself on this page, my name is Peter, I am 14, I pretty much know everything about The Beatles there is. They're pretty much all I listen to, a little bit of Queen and CCR but mostly Beatles. My favorite Beatles song is probably She's Leaving Home and my favorite album (it's so hard to choose) is either A Hard Day's Night, Revolver, or Rubber Soul… so yeah that's all I have to say!
