I'm 61, and a Beatles fan since I saw them on Thank Your Lucky Stars when I was 11.  I'll state now that I find their solo careers comprehensively disappointing with occasional high spots.

Hooray for the 2nd BBC set, but whatever happened to Let It Be, the Esher demos, Hollywood Bowl, Antholgy 4....?

Right after Paul's archive series is concluded these will be out. Only another 39 or something of those to go so not too long to wait.a-hard-days-night-george-10

 

Seriously, there is word of a Beatles archive project in the works but no word what that actually is. It could be the US albums that are up on the UK and Japan Amazon sites and volume 3 of the Capitol Albums, it could be a revival of the the live Project that was announced before it quickly vanished, it could be some Let It Be project, or even out of left field. We just don't know. 

Now that we have the BBC recordings remastered everything that was out available to buy in stores is now also on iTunes so its a kind of an ending with On Air of that aspect, hopefully now Apple will give us something to really be excited about.

Welcome aboard - my parents tell me we lived on the Isle of Wight when I was a baby / toddler in the late 50s.

Luckily I find their solo careers comprehensively exciting with the occasional low spot - which gives me a lot more to enjoy I suppose.  Though I do wish they had got back together to record in around 1977 - bit of a low spot for them all around then.

Joined last night. Found the website through google. I am reading the new book Tune In and was looking for a forum where it was being discussed. 

I was born in 1962 in New Jersey. I think I discovered the Beatles when I was around 10 or so. 

Compared to most Beatles fans I have run into in my life I think I'd give myself about an 8 in terms of Beatles trivia. 

I come here, and after reading through many of the posts and threads ...I feel like a 2! LOL

Glad to be here. 

:)

Well, if you feel like a 2, when I joined I was sitting at negative 275.23. Welcome to Beatles University. Glad you've enrolled on our lovely campus. I hope you earn all your class participation points by chiming in on many threads. Enjoy.

Hi my name's Faisa but people call me Fizzle I'm 18 living in London. I've always liked The Beatles was not obsessed then until a few months ago I listened to the whole of Magical Mystery Tour album my interest sparked then I literally became obsessed I feel so late getting into Beatlemania but I'm stuck into it and my friends are sick and tired of hearing it! I just love learning something new everyday and need to share my excitement with people on the same page as me. I never really had a role model in my life but George is now a huge inspiration of mine I just want to feel welcome with my Beatle obsessed self somewhere haha so I signed up anyone want to take me under their wing?

But if you want money for people with minds that hate... All I can tell you is brother you have to wait. Alright.

'Ello, 'ello Fizzle :)

A fellow 'Fiendish Thingy', eh? (we have our own page check the George thread). We need more George fans on this site and it's great we have another one!

Anyways I'm Katie/AppleScruffJunior (AppleScruff was taken, blah!) I am the Irish George & Dhani obsessed fan on this site and I challenge you to a George knowledge dual! a-hard-days-night-george-10

Bring it! I just adore that man like when I first got into them I loved Lennon but then when I begun learning more about George specifically he felt easier to relate to just watching his journey and personal development and what people had to say about him just fascinated me. he fascinates me in general. Personally think he doesn't get enough credit and is massively underrated but hey it's my opinion sorry haha I do feel strongly about Harrison went on abit... But thanks Katie I will take a look at the page making me feel welcome already!

Welcome aboard Fizz - I think I've heard of London ....

Actually, I just happen to be wearing a Notting Hill t-shirt this morning - though I live in Oz.
