been a musician and Beatle fan nearly my entire life and I grew up with them as their music and albums were constantly playing in my house. One of my earliest memories was staying up late 2/9/64 to watch Ed Sullivan...don't remember the show, but I remember it was a huge deal that I got to stay up so late to watch The Beatles! Had a mono version of Meet the Beatles and just about every new album released wound up on our turntable. Saw Help! every time it came around to my local movie theater every Christmas season. Saw Yellow Submarine on it's first run through our city as well as Let it Be...though I remember being seriously sad at watching the constant bickering of my musical heroes
Became fascinated with the whole Paul is Dead thing and used to spend hours poring over my record albums for clues to share with my friends...fun, fun, fun! As the years have gone by I've found that whenever I get really stuck musically and can't write or play anything that sounds good, I go back and learn/relearn some Beatles songs and that does the trick!
Just returned from a cruise to Alaska and one of the events on board was a Beatles Trivia Challenge...I won going 20/20 and decided I should look for a Beatles forum as soon as I got back home...did some searching and found what looked to me to be the best Beatle forum around!
Really excited to find this forum and looking forward to hanging out with my fellow Beatle maniacs!

Man you should have seen them kicking Edgar Allan Poe...
Welcome to the forum Dennis. You're among friends so don't be shy, we're all Beatlemaniacs just like you! You'll be happy and often enlightened on here. And yes it is the best Beatles forum around. Hope you stick around.
Welcome to the forum from another fanatic , hope you've watched not only Eight Days a week but also The incredible Maysles brothers documentary on The Beatles first trip to the USA. The extras in this are off the scale briliant, one scene shows an actual family watching the Ed Sullivan show from their house and it's featured briefly in the Eight Days a week documentary.
Hi. Welcome. This the best forum and there are loads of topics to argue over so add your two cents worth (or two pence). My Beatle life began in 1974 when Help was on TV Sunday afternoon. I couldn't place any of my favorite Monkees on the screen until my dad said 'it's the Beatles '. Blah blah.
Friend: My favorite Beatles song is Band On The Run.
Me: It's not a Beatles song.
Friend: Wot! That guy, that guy, Paul McCartney sings it right?
Friend: Alright! That one is my favorite Beatle song.
