So, AbbeyRoadRage, did you have A Hard Day's Night that caused you some Misery right before you choose your screen name? Did a blue-meanie cut you off? Wait! You're not even Sweet Little Sixteen yet. Surely your parents haven't said to you, "Drive My Car." Perhaps you would benefit from getting a Ticket To Ride the bus down The Long And Winding Road.?.?

Too Much Monkey Business out of me for now. I'll Be on My Way.

Seriously, ARR, I'm glad you've found The Beatles and us. Hop right into this psychedelic VW minivan with us and converse Across The Universe.

Hi, great site by the way !

  My name is Glenn, I grew up as a kid on the edges of Harlow Essex in the '60's. First memory of the Fabs, She Loves You & I Want To Hold Your Hand on the radio constantly ! A friends Mum bought the albums, my Mum took me to see Help ! on release.

  I was 13 in 1971, one of my mates had a complete collection of Beatles records ! I gradually borrowed them and listened to them properly ! Over a period of years I bought them all on vinyl, then a boxed set of cd's then the Remastered Box set in 2009. Loved them all, The White Album / Abbey Road  still my current faves.

 During the '70's I bought most of  the solo albums & singles when they were released saving my hard earned paper round / 3 car wash round money ! So exciting , reading the lyrics and getting a new album for the first time. John / Paul joint No 1, which would alternate during the '70's, then George, then Ringo. Loved music ever since…. also loved Bowie / Roxy / Stones / The Who / The Jam / The Clash / U2 /  …..current faves Kings Of Leon & The Heavy, seen them both live !

  Have been in sales since I was 20, have been a Sales Manager since January 1988. My job has taken me to work in most towns & cities in the UK, which I have loved ! Married  " A Northern Girl " Kay, have two sons Scott 28 George 22. Got a big promotion, have lived in Poynton Cheshire since early 1991. 10 miles from Manchester, yet the hills & the beautiful scenery is not far from my village so I have the best of both worlds.

  I followed my Dad being a Tottenham / ( Spurs ) supporter taking my sons still. They remain Spurs fans despite us living in Man United " heart land" for over 20 years !

   Still love live music. Never did get to see John or George live. I saw Elton John in 1975 at Wembley, there were rumours that John / Ringo may go on stage ! John had played 6 months earlier with him in New York…………..sadly never happened, great concert anyway, saw the Beach Boys, Eagles etc ! Saw Paul / Wings live many times ! The best time…….1975 Elstree  Studios ( where East Enders is now filmed ) World Tour rehearsals…….saw Denny Laine & Jimmy McCullough in the pub opposite, just 17 with a mate, offered to buy them a drink, they said yes ………then cheekily said  ( as casually as I could muster ! )  " Will Paul & Linda be coming over ? " No they replied……..oh well the concert was excellent ! the band were ALL superb ! Paul could play anything , sing anything !

   Saw Ringo at the Liverpool Empire ( where else ? ) with his All Starr Band a few years ago……… still a great performer, was on good form laughing with the audience….sprightly I can tell you !

   I've got 100's of books going back to early '60's originals ! Not into memorabilia really……..seen some great quality working / on holiday in America though . Got loads of Dvds / seen most docs on the Fabs !

Yay, GK, I've noticed your name in the "newest members" section and was hoping you'd chime in. I'm sure we will be tugging at your knowledge store as the conversations on various threads progress.

"Saw Paul / Wings live many times !"

LongHairedLady will be envious.

I can't wait to see Ringo this year.

Welcome Glenn, good to meet you and to get such a long introduction. People tend to be a bit brief at first.

I haven't spent as much time as I'd like in Cheshire, but from what I have seen it's lovely :)

Enjoy the site and the forum! apple01

Woo hoo first post!

I'm Josh and I'm a huge Beatles fan. I have only got into their music in the last year, but I call myself an avid Beatlemaniac already. I immediately fell in love with the band after I decided to listen to Abbey Road – a weird decision but probably the best I have ever made.

Looking forward to taking part in some great discussions in the future!

Hello there, Josh. Does nz stand for the real actual NZ? 

I can see how Abbey Road would would work itself into your mind and bring you around to more wonderful music by the Fab Four. I just started my Beatles journey last year too. Welcome.

Hey all, I'm Steve.  I've always been a fan but over the past few years, I've really been getting deep into it all.  I'm reading as much as I can.  I'm slowly filling the bookcase, in fact, I'll probably finish Lewisohn's latest this weekend and add it to the stack.

I've got a couple of places around the 'net where I talk about The Beatles and have been using this site as a reference point for awhile.  Figured I might as well join the fray, so I'm glad to be here.  Look forward to all the coming conversations.

Nice name, first of all.

Second of all, welcome! It's great here, I hope to see your opinion out there (even if I disagree with it). 

For an example of the best we have to offer, use almost any thread. 

For an example of the worst we have to offer, search "Day In The Life Aaaaahhs" (don't worry though, stuff like that rarely happens)

Hi, I'm Mr. Kite!

Recent Beatle related research has repeatedly lead me to this website, and quite a few times to the forum, so I've decided to create an account. I am (obviously) a large Beatles fan, I may even be labeled obsessed, and enjoy learning as much as I can about them. This quest for Beatley knowledge has left me pretty well informed. While I probably don't know as much as many others on the forum, I hope to contribute whatever knowledge I can.

Random info: I play guitar and piano, my favorite stuff to play is of course that of the Fab Four. I've recently started collecting vinyls, got some interesting ones to talk about if I can find (or make) a vinyl topic. 

That's pretty much it, except after seeing this smiley I have to do this…

 

MAAAAXXXXXX!blue-meanie                         

The following people thank Mr. Kite for this post:

If I spoke prose you'd all find out, I don't know what I talk about.
