Wow, cbatcu, what a story you have!  I almost envy you because you have been experiencing the Beatles afresh with intensity.  It's hard for me to imagine what that would be like -- I'd have to first get a lobotomy and wipe my mind of the Beatles, and then experience that joy of discovering them anew.  I wonder how many others have been inspired by the McCartney concert in a similar way...  I think most people who know the Beatles just think of it as a way to rekindle old memories and renew what's already there -- it may not occur to us to think that there are people out there of all ages who will be discovering it for the first time.

I discovered the Beatles in earnest in a kind of backassward way when I was about 15, back in 1971, first hearing Ram -- when some family had put giant speakers blasting that album on the front porch of their farmhouse where I and some other junior high school kids had gone for a school field trip to ride horses.  I was blown away and the first thing I did when I got back to the city was buy that album.  Then after that I explored McCartney (Paul's first solo album), and then the White Album, etc.  My older sister was on hand to help me with some of the details, as she had been a fan some ten years prior as a 14-year-old when the Beatles were actually rocking the world.

I guess we've all taken our long and winding road to get to the Beatles. Some of us just took roads that were just a bit longer and more twisting.

My husband is now calling himself a Beatles/McCartney widower because I have my mp3 player/headphones on a lot now. I never had an mp3 player before. Never had reason to before. I've filled up the initial 4 gigs with Beatles and McCartney. I bought a memory chip to go in it so I can expand to more McCartney and then onto the other 3's post Beatles music. He didn't know what a can of worms he opened up by taking me to that concert :-) . Better get off here now and give him some attention.

And then there is And I Love Her where the riff came from George and how important to the song is that?! It really could have been the first and only Lennon/McCartney/Harrison track.
