Hello everyone, I have been a huge fan of The Beatles since I was 12. I was born in London, but moved to Oxford when I was over a year old. They did many great songs, but my favourites are ‘In My Life ‘, ‘Here, There And Everywhere ‘, ‘Something ‘ and ‘With A Little Help From My Friends ‘. All their albums are great, but my favourite is ‘Revolver ‘. I am also a big fan of their solo work, in fact I have listened to every solo album.  
 
I have been to Liverpool with my family twice. It’s a great city. 
 
My Nanna went to see The Beatles in Cardiff with Roy Orbison and Gerry and The Pacemakers on 27th May 1963. She couldn’t hear them due to the screaming, but enjoyed Roy and Gerry and The Pacemakers’ performances.  
 
In October 2019, I went to see the excellent Hornsey Road presentation. I spoke to someone at the show and he said there was a lady who went to see The Beatles at The Carfax Assembly Rooms in Oxford on 16th February 1963. Unfortunately, I didn’t get to speak to her.  
 
From 7th – 9th August, I went to the Virtual Fest For Beatles Fans on Zoom. It was great. I wrote a blog post about my experience. 
 
 
I’m looking forward to chatting with everyone here.

Glad to have you here, @Rube. Did your parents love the Beatles or did Beatlemania skip a generation in your family?

Thank you @Ahhh Girl.

Yes, my parents have always loved The Beatles. My Dad has some books and albums. My twin sister and my brother who is 12 years old are also huge fans.

Good choice. Revolver is great.  Welcome, @Rube.
