Those Cliff Clavin quotes are funny Zig. Cheers was one great comedy, especially when Diane left.

Was that a John or Ringo invention 'Turn left at Greenland'? One Beatle would often repeated jokes created by another Beatle.

How did I find the Beatles Bible, you ask? Well, it just so happens that I was on an African safari, wanting to fulfill the Beatles' dream of going on safari, something they suggested, but they decided to create an album called Revolver instead. a-hard-days-night-george-10 Anyway,  there was a zebra standing in the middle of nowhere, holding a piece of paper in its mouth. I took the piece of paper, and it said: "You better run for your life if you can, little girl." My first thought was, "I'm not a little girl!" And my second thought was: "AAAAAHHHHHHH!!!!!!! RUN!!!!!" And I ended up in South America, and there was Bungalow Bill with his elephant and gun (and mom), about to kill a tiger. I jumped on top of the tiger and rode away, but Bill didn't bother chasing us because the Sun King was chasing him away from the tigers. I found out that the tiger I had saved was actually a shape-shifting sheepdog (say that ten times fast!) named Martha. I took Martha back to Loretta Martin, her owner, and then I went home, saying to my mom, "I'm so tired." I didn't want to go to bed yet, so I went on the computer and Googled the Beatles. This website was one that came up. I clicked on it and read some interesting Beatles facts. Then, I read some of the Fab Forum posts, and I decided I wanted to join. And the rest is history.

Mine was fairly simple, I was looking for Beatles facts and came across the Beatles Bible, which coincidentally had a forum and Voila! I found the forums.  This was like 2 years ago.

Last year I was on a Beatles kick after taking a break for a bit.  At the same time I was getting sick of the types of people in a few different entertainment forums I was part of.  So I did a search for Beatles forums and found this place.  Odd that there are so few active members, while at any given time there might be up to a hundred guests (there are 44 as I type this).

It's a mixed blessing, I guess.  While some interesting threads die off easily and need to be bumped constantly to restart them, at the same time we're spared the deluge of spammers, forum bullies, trolls, know-it-alls and other assorted rabble.

 I was Google image searching George Harrison and I found that gorgeous picture of him playing the guitar (the one that's on the first page of the BeatlesBible George biography) I ended up read all of the Biographies and then all the History (it still amazes me that there's an entry for every single day of their career, kudos to Joe) and then I noticed Fab Forum. I was reading the Overrated vs Underrated Songs thread and thought, "I'll Get You and I Me Mine are so underrated, why has no one mentioned them?"…so I had to join.

My story is true and mildly amusing.  I was having an ongoing disagreement with a friend who insisted that the childlike female voice at the end of "Bungalow Bill" was Yoko, and I thought it was just John or Paul in a Monty Pythone-esque falsetto. 

It turns out my friend was right, and he confirmed it by discovering the Beatles Bible.  He gave me the link, and I was impressed.  And the rest is history.

I've been sminking around the internet since getting out of hospital and unable to get out of the flat much for various reasons. Decided to set myself a task of building myself a set of notes on all Beatles and solo recordings to pass time, and the Beatles Bible kept cropping up in my explorations. Spent much of last year as an observer, but the further I travelled the less I knew, so decided to jump into the forum a few weeks ago.

Searching for Beatle information and came across this site. I was like wow, there is so much information here and then I noticed the forum. At first I was kinda of skeptical to look at the board because I've seen a lot of Beatle forums, but they're mostly dead.

I think that I was trying to figure out who sang lead on a particular song or what instrument made a particular sound (I can't quite remember anymore; I might've been looking for lyrics for all I know). I googled it, found this site, and started using this site as my go-to place for Beatles trivia and the like (I gawked at the map for a bit too). I think I had been trying to google Beatles pajamas when I came across the forum about being a hard core Beatles fan, and I started to look through it a bit. After finding several things that either sounded hilarious or rang true, I came up with a few of my own. I joined the site based on what I was eating for lunch at the time (a green apple). I had started eating the apple, then looked down and realized that it was green like the one I had seen so often in Beatles history. So, I basically joined this site due to an apple and a misplaced comment from the week before.

You rule.

I found the site by looking up either Beatles fansites or Beatles message boards.
