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?…

"Frankly, the material didn't impress me, least of all their own songs. I...was going to have to find some suitable material...and was quite certain their songwriting ability had no saleable future!" 

"I told them, 'I'm serious. This is a great group, and we're going to hear a lot more from them.' But...they were too busy laughing."  --Sir George

Hi all, I am new here. I just found this web page and this forum. Yes, slow as always. I was born on June 18th 1951 in a village near the black forest, south Germany. But my life began with “A Hard Day’s Night “, the song. From then on, The Beatles influenced my life more than anything or anybody else. A year later I began to learn to play guitar, and a year later I began to play with bands. After I finished school I began to study (“classical”) guitar at a conservatory. So music and guitar was the dominating thing in my life and The Beatles brought me there.

I could tell a lot more about how it was to be a Beatles fan in the year 1964 in Germany and what my father did to me because I loved their music… This connected me even more to their music because it helped to get away from this unpleasant side of life. In the following years The Beatles and all the other pop music groups had an enormous influence on the young people, but The Beatles had started it and were the leaders. I am a witness to how they changed the world.

Hello there! My name is Danielle, I am 16 and from The States. I’ve always liked the Beatles (my dad played them constantly for me as a child) but within the past year my love for the band has grown. I’m very interested in the culture of the 1960s and have been collecting old magazines from that era for several months. Whenever I see something Beatles related, I make sure to cut it out very nicely, laminate it, and post it on my wall. It’s such an amazing feeling to be able to hold what feels like history in your hands.

 

My favorite Beatles era is the 1968-1969 and my favorite Beatle is either Paul or Ringo (I just can’t decide!). My favorite Beatles songs are “I Want You (She’s So Heavy)” “Happiness Is A Warm Gun ” and “Boys

 

I’m also currently reading Tune In, The Beatles, All These Years by Mark Lewison.

@flowersforophelia A Shakespearian on the forum? Big fan of Billy, he and The Beatles are among the greatest British artists.

@flowersforophelia I see we have an Ophelia fan here. Greetings to the forum, and we very much hope you’ll enjoy your stay. The Beatles are uber cool, and you’ll find like-minded folks here, in regards to both Shakespeare and the Beatles. I’d name myself as MacBeth related… but I don’t want to get into a car crash the next day. 

We do a little trolling

The Sixties are becoming farther back in history everyday. So obvious, but so intriguing at the same time. May The Beatles music live forever.
