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!
