Well, there's always ebay if you still need that John badge.

Sorry to hear about your bruv's passing. Good song for his funeral. 

The Beatles still pack that emotional punch after all these years. If you haven't discovered it yet, many of our posters are very young.

If you need any help navigating the forum, please ask. We are glad to help. You may find this thread helpful: https://www.beatlesbible.com/f.....-facets/

Hello everyone. I found this site by randomly searching for some information - I forget exactly what information.

Long story short, I'm probably one of the oldest people here because I can actually remember when the Beatles came to America, in fact, to my home town of New York City when I was 8 1/2. I remember Beatlemania well. I remember the hot day when my parents took us to see A Hard Day's Night in August 1964. We were expecting a piece of trash (we would have loved it anyway) and it turned out to be awesome. 

Recently I've began to think of the events of the 60s and inevitably it led me back to the Beatles. I rediscovered my love for them. I am now obsessed with learning about them. There is so much we weren't told...

How do you do...?

I'm Hauserplenty. Nice to be here. 

I first became aware of the Beatles by stealing Mom's records. The one with the plants and the bass drum on it I thought I'd save for later--after I'd listened to the earlier ones. Her collection started with the Beatles' second album, succinctly titled for the American market as "The Beatles' Second Album" so I figured I'd start there. I couldn't tell their voices apart, and really had no idea who played what yet, but I do remember playing Ringo's songs first, which Mom thought was a real hoot. She asked me who was my favorite Beatle, then said Paul was her favorite, so I chose Ringo. I got a practice pad and drumsticks not long afterward. Matched grip was so common in the mid-1980's that I took it for granted, and had no idea he had actually popularized it.  By the time I got around to playing Sgt. Pepper , it blew my mind so bad I spent a week on each song. 

So a bit later on, I was in the right place at the right time. After a brief stint as The Wonder Boy, I realized I had much more work to do, so I switched to bass, and  on it continues. Dreams do come true, but not always in the way one thinks they might. God has a plan. Many are called, but few are chosen. So I fired my agent and waited for the old contract to run out. Along the way I learned about How It Works. It wasn't how I thought at first...but I must say, I'm quite happy with my new representation. I don't know where I'd be if my jazz elders hadn't put up with me, so thanks to them all; they know who they are.

I'm known for my insouciance, as well as a somewhat...arid...sense of humor (as we say in the American.) John wouldn't change his drawing style, so I wouldn't let Them change that about me. But I've no wish to repeat the same mistakes. It's time to study Music, and get out of failure mode. So I'm off to play my 4-wired ostrich egg slicer. Goes well with the drooms, Y'know loike. If 45 years of never getting with the program have taught me one thing, it is that: 

Great artists steal.

And Love is all you need. --That Occam bloke who had the Gillette account (sic)

Now, what am I going to do with all my debb and duff books?...

...Had you remembering these owld custard of Boldy Street blowing?

We are not happy with her Queen Victorious Monologue, but...

...The Mersey Boat is selling another three copies to some go home foreigners who went home.
