Ok this is easy. Is there a TV show, a book, another band or something that you were interested in because it has a connection with the Beatles, and you consider it's awesome on its own?

 

My answer is Patrick McGoohan's The Prisoner.

 

Image Enlarger

 

When I read it was a Beatles favorite, I searched on Internet more about it, I got interested and after watching it was blown away. Now it's in my top 5 favorite shows, with House, M.D., The X Files, Inspector Morse and The Equalizer and I got a soft spot for Life (the one with Damian Lewis)

 

Edit Huh. Now I realize that all of my favorite TV shows but one, the leading actor was or is British. Hugh Laurie, John Thaw, Patrick McGoohan and Edward Woodward, and Damian Lewis.

 

2nd. Edit. Ok yes McGoohan was born in US but he was raised in England so...

My favorite band right now, the Meters, had Paul McCartney listed on their wikipedia as being a fan and having worked with them. I was just looking at random things one day and ran across them, and I thought, 'well if they're good enough for Paul they're good enough for me.'

I read the Tibetan Book of the Dead because of the Beatles, but it hasn't really sparked an interest in anything.

That's because you're not dead yet. Try it later.

 

Ray Charles and Ottis Redding, both of them singed covers of beatle's songs.

I'd like to say "thank you" on behalf of the group and ourselves and I hope we passed the audition.

I don't usually LOL at posts, but....

The Smothers Brothers... the Dick Cavett Show... lots and LOTS of things. Eric Clapton... Joe Brown. Wings.

Gahhh I don't know! There are too many to count! a-hard-days-night-ringo-13 THIS ISN'T EASY MITHVEAEN!

Haha, you know what's really cool? I actually know how to spell your name, Mithveaen. Without looking at your avatar or anything! a-hard-days-night-george-9 That's one thing, the Beatles led me to this site and all the friends I've made on here! (Speaking of which, I miss Sunii. a-hard-days-night-ringo-2)

Pretty much everything on my iPod is the Beatles or it's there because of the Beatles. a-hard-days-night-george-2

I'm in love, but I'm lazy.

Sorry for the spelling! I thought it was easy but I should've chosen something different...

 

Huh that's nice I think the same about this forum a-hard-days-night-george-6

 

Actually music doesn't count for me because in a way my tastes in music are heavily influenced by them.

The Beatles Bible. How did you guys discover the Beatles Bible? For me, it was referenced on Wikipedia.

Heh heh, Yoko Ono! blue-meanie

Actually, my first full-on Beatles fanship-wave, along with a TV viewing of "Woodstock" and "Monterey Pop" around the same time, were the main gateway drugs that led me to a lifelong love '60s stuff and hippie music, having missed out on the summer of love by being confined to my mother's uterus.

One day, a tape-op got a tape on backwards, he went to play it, and it was all "Neeeradno-undowarrroom" and it was "Wow! Sounds Indian!"
