I've noticed that more and more new people are joining this forum which is great, so here's the question: who is the youngest and who is the oldest member? I know we have a 13-year-old which is pretty good going for a prize (hypothetically speaking of course - don't want to cause Joe any skipped heart beats thinking he needs to buy a trophy Laugh) and I'm sure I've read there is someone on here older than me (I'm 51), so come on people, let's get it out in the open Wink

14 here, I always used to be the youngest on the forums I joined--sucks to be growing out of that.

My sister was talking about joining.  She's 11 and probably suffers from as severe a case of Beatlemania as I do.

34 in April. I meant to buy George's 33 1/3 back in August but forgot Frown

Incidentally, I'm working away on the day-by-day Beatles history section, currently up to May 1963 but it's taking a while. I've stopped posting automatic updates to Twitter because I figured most people probably wouldn't care that they played all of those tiny England venues in the early days, but once I do all the recording sessions and major tours it should look great.

Anyway, the reason for mentioning it here is that you'll be able to search for your birthday and find out exactly what The Beatles were doing. I have about 30 days in the year which have nothing at all yet, but that won't take long to fix. I even found something for 29 February - a 1968 Yoko Ono concert which is only slightly connected with The Beatles, but it'll do.

Looks like I'm not going to win any prizes. I'm only 26. That's still young, right?

I've been meaning to mention that I found that date thing to be pretty neat. So here it is:

That's pretty neat, Joe! 🙂

Let's see - nothing too exciting on my future birthday. They did agree to play at the Top Ten Club, so that's cool.

Wait till I add the other years. 30 October, right?

1963: TV appearance in Stockholm, Sweden
1964: live in Bournemouth, England
1965: vocals recorded for We Can Work It Out
1967: Fool On The Hill sequence filmed for MMT
1968: John and Ringo watch the Bonzo Dog Band in London

Not a great selection, and some years they didn't do anything of note. Still, it's nice to know.

(I hope nobody else wants to know exactly what was happening on their birthdays - I don't have time to look it all up!)

Yes, I am that 13-year oldSmile I am quite honored to be the youngest, actually. I feel different from other kids my age. They listen to rap and juk that has no meaning, and I listen to the greatest band from the '60s. My Beatlesmania disease is starting to spread among the youth. My friend who is practically forced to like the Beatles since I replay the Sgt. Pepper's CD in the car over and over,(Psst..Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds has yet to leave her head) likes the band somewhat. Like, but not love. I doubt she would join the forum if I asked her to, sadly. But maybe in the future the disease will have full affect on her enitirely and she will join:)

*cough* You mean greatest band ever! ;)

And seventeen here... 3rd youngest? Do I get the bronze medal? It's nice to see a general mix of listeners, there's both on the higher and lower end of the scale.

AND as a an exciting bonus, Birthday was recorded on none other than my own birthday! 😀 It's fate, it's fate!

That is awesome!:) While My Guitar Gently Beeps the video game was released on my b-day...not as good as Birthday being recorded on your b-day, though. *sigh*

I'm 17 too. Who's younger? 21 September 1992 my birthday is.

From what I can tell, there seems to be more younger listeners in the UK and USA than in Australia. I've been converting my friends to The Beatles - it's a small but mostly successful crusade. At school (before I finished at the end of 2009) I was labelled as the boy who liked The Beatles and I think that helped increase other kid's awareness of the band.

I guess I'm comfortably in the middle, then, aren't I?  I'll be 31 tomorrow.

So far, the most exciting Beatles-in-history fact for my birthday is that Paul and Ringo went to India on that day.

It'll have to do.  🙂
