All right, if we're thinking big then, NEMS headquarters.

Or at least Brian's desk.

Think big you say?

We need the Universe so we can go across it.

Yesterday I was talking with some fans about the piece of Beatles history we'd like to see in a museum so everyone could enjoy it.
  
What piece of Beatles memorabilia or history would you like to see made publicly accessible?

parlance

I'd like to see the actual instruments they used. Realistically, though, the original stuff is either in posession of the original owners, busted up, stolen, lost, auctioned off, or in other museums around the world. Replicas, pictures of same, or pictures of the boys playing them either in the studio or in concert would be a nice idea, 'cos the original gear isn't available.

Yeah, that's why I mentioned keyboards, on the assumption that they'd be the possession of EMI studios and still located there. (Yeah right)

I remember George saying 'Blimey, he's always talking about “Yesterday”, you'd think he was Beethoven or somebody' - Paul McCartney

An authentic Beatle wig, chewing gum, dolls, pieces of their hotel bedsheets and Beatle breath (we need some tatty old memorabilia from the '60s) . Z

A local record store has a display case of old memorabilia for sale, like a Yellow Submarine board game, and I always love perusing it.

I'd like a deep and detailed account of their childhood and school life - I think it's my inner psychological profiler wanting to know if their upbringing affected their lives. 

"White Album - My joint-fave Beatles album along with Revolver. They show the two sides of Beatles. Revolver's very controlled - even though it's also very innovative. The White Album's playful and almost ramshackle. It's like a scrapbook kept by a genius. Fantastic stuff."

Paul's hair dye, his toupe, his dentures (oops, wrong thread!)...actually, some of the keyboards and sound equipment, microphones, and chairs (and Ringo's ashtray) still exist. They are at the Apple studios. My friends went on a tour of the studios last spring, and had their pictures taken with them. Truly cool. Wow...we are thinking big here. I can't top cbatcu with the Universe, so I'll go with the handcuffs Paul was in when he was arrested in Japan (can you imagine what those would be worth?), my Beatles cards..I still have a full set of my Beatles bubblegum cards, and the tutu that John wore on stage in Hamburg. (By the way...does anyone know where Stu's artwork is??? I'm not sure Astrid has it.)

Some folks say the ashes were scattered, others that Yoko has them. Nothing has been confirmed.

So, there could be hope to put the ashes in the museum.

You guys absolutely crack me up! Okay...seriously...I think we should put Paul & Heather's divorce papers into the museum ( in a small wing we'll call the "Beatles Oops...Can't Believe We Did That!" wing. That's where we'd also put Paul's handwritten plans for "Magical Mystery Tour...great music, but even Paul wonders what he was thinking with that!...and the electronics that Magic Alex was "working on" in the Apple basement!)

Is this a Beatles-as-a-group museum only or are we expanding to their solo careers too? John's ashes and Paul's dentures would be going in post-Beatles territory. We do need to set our collection development policy.

If we are going with post-Beatles stuff also, then I propose a copy of an Amy Vanderbilt etiquette book. They haven't been updated since 1995. There was a 2002 reprint, but it wasn't revised. So, in the future, we need to make sure a copy survives so that people will fully understand Paul's "Mrs. Vanderbilt" song.

Which brings up another point. Are we going to digitize any of our collection to make it available on the 'net? Has anyone worked out a metadata scheme?
