Ok this is easy. Is there a TV show, a book, another band or something that you were interested in because it has a connection with the Beatles, and you consider it's awesome on its own?

 

My answer is Patrick McGoohan's The Prisoner.

 

Image Enlarger

 

When I read it was a Beatles favorite, I searched on Internet more about it, I got interested and after watching it was blown away. Now it's in my top 5 favorite shows, with House, M.D., The X Files, Inspector Morse and The Equalizer and I got a soft spot for Life (the one with Damian Lewis)

 

Edit Huh. Now I realize that all of my favorite TV shows but one, the leading actor was or is British. Hugh Laurie, John Thaw, Patrick McGoohan and Edward Woodward, and Damian Lewis.

 

2nd. Edit. Ok yes McGoohan was born in US but he was raised in England so...

My favorite band right now, the Meters, had Paul McCartney listed on their wikipedia as being a fan and having worked with them. I was just looking at random things one day and ran across them, and I thought, 'well if they're good enough for Paul they're good enough for me.'

I read the Tibetan Book of the Dead because of the Beatles, but it hasn't really sparked an interest in anything.

If I seem to act unkind, it's only me, it's not my mind that is confusing things.

Schopenhauer and Spinal Tap in the same sentence... It's all too much!

I'd like to say "thank you" on behalf of the group and ourselves and I hope we passed the audition. John Lennon
