New here, although I made one post in 2014. Newish generation fan:I was born about a year before John's death, and oh how I wish I'd been a teen in the 60s!! I really got into them with the Anthology series in the 1990s. I could listen to them all day every day. I am generally an "early Beatles" fan, but of course love it all! I am trying to indoctrinate my kids, but so far of my "old" stuff they prefer Michael Jackson and Elvis Costello, go figure! (Although of course both past collaborators of Paul!)
welcome to the forum. Be patient with your kids, eventually they will see the light. I initially got into the Beatles by buying 62.to 66 then rediscovered all the gems on 67 -70 . I think you probably have to me mid teens to grasp the complexities of the later stuff.
Kp2479, you would NOT want to have been a teenager in the '60s, if you were an American male. At 18, you registered with the Selective Service, and they were drafting boys to fight in a war the country did not appear to want to win.
Fiendish Thingy: Thanks Bobber. I'm good thanks. Quiet on here for the last few months. I see Al has gone all 'Facebook' and is attracting new members. No bad thing. Are you going to the annual Beatleweek in Liverpool this year? Not long now 10 weeks or so. See you there?

Bobber: Not sure. It's an expensive trip for me plus I'm starting a new job around that time.

Amadeus: Hey all. Not been frequenting here very much lately. Between burying people, helping sick people and feeling crap myself, Me and Mrs. A. have been weighed under. Hoping to get a bit more out of that rut so I can focus back on the fun things I used to focus

The End: Hey all - come along to the 12th Annual Beatle Forum meet up - it's in The Grapes at midday on Saturday 24th August! Will be great to see some new faces as I'm fed up with the old ones!
