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!

Hello everyone!

I've been lurking on this site for a while now and thought it was time I made my first post. My name is Hannah and i'm from London. I'll be 30 in a few days (ahhhhhh!!!) and have been a Beatles fan pretty much my whole life. I grew up with the Beatles music, thanks to my lovely mum, dad and older brother. I had to share a room with my brother when i was little and he had a picture of the Beatles, circa Abbey Road and i remember i used to be terrified of John Lennon with his long hair and beard! ( I got over it and John is now my hero!) I got obsessed from the age of about 12 when the Anthology came out and have stayed the same way ever since! Although my mum loves the Beatles none of my other friends do so it was great to discover this site and find lots of like minded people. I have felt that maybe i'm a bit strange to be this fanatical about a band that broke up 13 years before i was born but i see lots of others feel the same and i don't feel so weird! My boyfriend doesn't share my love for the Beatles (although he likes a few of their songs) despite my best efforts to convert him. I suppose i'll just have to accept that, although he has agreed that if we ever have a son we can name him Lennon!

I think, breathe, eat and sleep the Beatles so am looking forward to having some interesting discussions with you all soon!

Hello.

My name is Mark.  I am from Denver, Colorado, USA.  I am 36 years old and newly married. 

My love for the Beatles did not come until I was 18, but was introduced to their music by my dad at the age of 5.  My dad appreciated more of the early Beatles sound.  He saw them in 1964 at Red Rocks in Denver, Colorado.  I can remember him owning two albums.  "Meet the Beatles," and "The Early Beatles."  He gave me his copy of "The Early Beatles" which got destroyed, and um, I stole his copy of "Meet the Beatles."  "Meet the Beatles" really struck me, especially the cover, with the iconic photo by Robert Freeman.  Their music was really upbeat that I can remember.  Really upbeat and fun.  Of course a kid listening to that kind of music really makes them jump around to the music, which is what I did. 

In 1995, after watching "The Beatles Anthology" on tv, I appreciated them more than ever.  From that point on I started collecting Beatles stuff.  Their music, movies, books and vynal. 

Right now my collection consists of their cd's remastered.  Except for "Let It Be."  My copy of "Let It Be" is bootlegged which I combined both the original version and "Let It Be, Naked" into one.  I own the dvd's "A Hard Day's Night" and "Help!," and the blu ray of "Magical Mystery Tour."  I own both the dvd set and the book of "The Beatles Anthology."  My vynal collection includes a Japanese replica of the "Yesterday & Today" butcher cover. 

I enjoy both early Beatles and later Beatles, so it is really hard to say which one I prefer.  My favorite album is "Revolver."  My top 5 favorite songs are:

5) Norwegian Wood (This Bird Has Flown)

4) Eleanore Rigby

3) You've Got To Hide Your Love Away

2) Strawberry Fields Forever

1) I Am The Walrus

My favorite Beatle is Paul.  I prefer his solo material the most.  I also like Wings.  I really enjoy the album "Venus & Mars."  I even saw Paul McCartney in concert, in 2002 on his "Back In the US" tour, in Denver, Colorado. 

I have been looking at various Beatles forums and this seemed the best I felt.  I hope to connct with other Beatles fans around the world.

Welcome, welcome, new Mark!

Always like to welcome a new Mark to the site. As one myself, I feel it is my duty each and every time. This is my first "Hello, Mark!" opportunity, but I would do it more if more Mark's allowed me to.

Interesting that you name Paul as favourite Beatle, when 4 of your top 5 are John. As a John fan, just worth mentioning.

Anyway, welcome, and as you find, WE ARE THE ONLY BEATLES SITE AND FORUM WORTH THE COST OF JOE'S FREE ENTRANCE (you can always contribute to Joe's running costs, there are details scattered around!).

We are a good bunch of people, I think, and always eager for new views and opinions, so very glad to say hello.

Thank you mja6758 and Vonbontee.  Yeah I find that really interesting, and always wondered how I like Paul and 4 of my top 5 are by John. 

Yes my birthday is in April.  April 22 to be exact, and yes I was born in 1977.  Pushing 40. 

Thank you again for the welcome.
