After reading a post by @Necko, I realized we don't have an appreciation thread about Neil. Until now.

What an incredibly loyal servant to the Beatles. It's just a shame we never really got to access all those great Beatle anecdotes that he must have had stored away in his head. A Neil Aspinall memoirs book would have been incredible.

To be honest, I think some people probably breathe easy that Aspinall never did his memoir. He certainly was the gatekeeper.

I'm like Necko only I'm a bassist ukulele guitar synthesizer kazoo penguin and also everyone. Or is everyone me? Now I'm a confused bassist ukulele guitar synthesizer kazoo penguin everyone who is definitely not @Joe.  This has been true for 2016 & 2017 Sig-Badge.png but I may have to get more specific in the future.

Right. We all know the "whats" (what they were and what they did). He knew the "hows" and the "whos". Many a secret died with him.

I think even a cleaned up version would have been great.
