Hi - I've been lurking on here for a few months and wanted to introduce myself. I'm Jeff and I live in New York. Although I'm 39 years old, I just became a Beatles fan about a year ago. For most of my life I had known only about as much as any American my age would know about them -- their names, a few facts about their lives, and their most unavoidably famous songs. And my dad used to play the Sgt. Pepper Album when I was a kid. (And I played Ringo Starr in a school play in the 4th grade.) Since they were supposed to be the greatest band of all time, I had always wanted to know more about them someday.

Then, last spring, after Mad Men used "Tomorrow Never Knows" in an episode, I decided it was finally time. I bought all their albums and listened to them in chronological order while reading Jonathan Gould's "Can't Buy Me Love" from start to finish so I could learn all about their musical, historical, social and cultural significance (the book does a great job of exploring all of that). Now I listen to them all the time and I'm a big fan.

Anyway, hi everyone.

Yeah, same. I didn't know that they all were ''one'' until I found my parent's CD some time after a-hard-days-night-ringo-14

Moving along in our God given ways, safety is sat by the fire/Sanctuary from these feverish smiles, left with a mark on the door.

Hello! People know me as A, but you can call me whatever you want to (YesterdayTomorrowForever, Yesterday, Tomorrow, Forever... or something as random as Tomato or Armadillo!). My favorite Beatle is George, and my favorite Beatles song is Something. My favorite Beatles album is Revolver.

I look forward to posting more! This is a very good site- kudos to the creator (Joe, if I'm correct?)!

Hah, no, fortunately it was a non-speaking part! It was sort of a pageant of American popular culture through the years, and three other boys and I played the Beatles. We came onto the stage and pretended to play instruments to "I Wanna Hold Your Hand" or something like that.
