Hello!  I've been a Beatles freak since I was about 11 (lo-o-o-o-ng ago).  My first 8 or so LPs were all Beatles.  Got the first couple albums, Something New & Beatles Second, by bringing cigarettes from the gas station to an older kid, so 30 cents each, plus the 1/2 mile walk.  Still got'em with the guy's name written on them..  

I play in a band called Direwolf and the Pack Attack!, and we do mostly oldies, including Beatles & McCartney solo.

I've actually looked up the song facts on many occasions in the past, so I have long been aware  of this great site as befits the greatest band in the history of Earth.

@Direwolf I ask because of your name.  Are you a dead fan?

Not really... although there's been discussion of including the tune (lead guitarist is a Deadhead, among other things), considering the subject.

Was on a major Game of Thrones binge when the name came about. 

Thanks for the welcome, folks

 

[edit]  actually went truckin on a Grateful Dead walkabout on Youtube, thanks to your link.  Some great songwriting, harmonies, tasty pickin'...

You’ve got almost all of us beat in terms of location. I’ve been wanting to go to Liverpool for ages and unfortunately wasn’t able to go during my trip to England. 

Not to say I don’t like the Pacific NW, it just isn’t Beatley enough.

Wow, that's such a cool place to live at @Father McKenzie! (I'm sure you will hear this sentence a lot here! 😉 ) A warm welcome to the forum, I'm looking forward to discussions with you! 

Btw, I just saw in your bio that your favourite Beatle is Paul McCartney and one of your favourite songs is Girl... for that, you will be greatly loved by some!ahdn_george_06

Also belated welcome to @Direwolf , great to have you here!

Not once does the diversity seem forced -- the genius of the record is how the vaudevillian "When I'm 64" seems like a logical extension of "Within You Without You" and how it provides a gateway to the chiming guitars of "Lovely Rita. - Stephen T. Erlewine on Sgt Pepper's
