Kind of unrelated since these weren't really people who claim to be fans, but I wore these socks today

and four different people asked me what was on my socks. I always thought that the Yellow Submarine from their movie was a pretty universally known image, but apparently not.

Cool socks. Love your dog. It looks exactly like the one we had before our current one. We still miss her. a-hard-days-night-paul-10

 

I had forgotten about this thread. Thanks for reviving it @Ahhh Girl. I'm sure our more current members can think of more examples.

If you hang around afterwards he normally comes out after the show and signs autographs/chats a bit. He's a nice guy.

I'll be seeing him so I'll take your advice and try to get a signature. Maybe i'll try to get a copy of his album at the show so he can sign it.

If you go can you please get him to sign a legal document promising a George Harrison outtakes box set within the next 2 years.

^^ So, you don't agree that Let It Be is so awesome that it overshadows all their other albums? Gee, I really can't see why this shouldn't be the case...a-hard-days-night-george-10

Some time ago I played 'guessing-Beatles-basslines' with the bassist in our school Big Band and one bassline part he played I couldn't guess (shame on me, really!), it was only a very short part, about two or three seconds. Because I hadn't had the slightest idea, I asked for a clue. He grinned at me and said 'I thought you were a Beatles fan, how can't you know it? It's from the White Album ' I still didn't know it so I gave up and asked him which song it was. His answer was:

'The Ballad Of John And Yoko '

Not once does the diversity seem forced -- the genius of the record is how the vaudevillian "When I'm 64" seems like a logical extension of "Within You Without You" and how it provides a gateway to the chiming guitars of "Lovely Rita. - Stephen T. Erlewine on Sgt Pepper's

^At least they know about the He's So Fine/My Sweet Lord case. Every time I hear MSL anywhere I always say "oh great it's my favourite cover of He's So Fine".

I don't see how this is a fake fan thing, like at all.

Tall, dark-haired QuarryMan likes basketball, music, and naturally, boys. He was a valuable participant on the track team. He is one of Freeport's great contributors to the recording world. As for the immediate future, QuarryMan has no plans, but will take life as it comes.

@Martha no shame on you for not recognizing a song froma three second bass part. That bass player seems as phoney as they come.

No it's not. In that sentence they never even called My Sweet Lord a Beatles song. They just asked what the other Beatles' opinion was on it. The Beatles may have broken up in 1969, but each of the four men who were in that group will forever be a Beatle.

Sorry, I didn't explain very well. We (I) were talking about Beatles songs, and the way they delivered it, they implied it was a Beatles song, and I forgot to mention that, as I thought I didn't need to due to the nature of this thread...paul-mccartney-facepalm_gif

Yes, I love the Beatles. I even know the people they met when they went to Hamburg.

Klaus Voormann, Jürgen Vollmer,

Asteroid Kitchen.

Partial credits to Sgt.Peppdog, who I seem to recall came up with the name Asteroid Kitchen in the Even Easier thread. apple01
