Hi Great to be a new member in this group.
So it’s 30 years since my favourite album ever came out. And it got me thinking about the thanks/credits on cloud nine. There’s some obvious ones but who know about some of the lesser known?
Special thanks to Olivia Trinidad, Dominic Taylor, Alan Rogan and Bill Harrison, Kevin Townend, Eddie Veale, David Kearney, Rachel Wickens, Phil Hatton, Denis O'Brien, Herbie Blash, Prarthna & Dhani, Gordon Murray, Bob Dylan, James Burton, Duane Eddy, Steve and Darlene, Garnet, Bill Bottrell, John, Paul & Ringo.
What is also neat about that LP is the cover. George is seen with his old black '57 Gretsch DuoJet guitar that he bought off of a sailor from America, Ivan Hayward, that smuggled it in. He later got a job as a Liverpool cabbie and sold it to George in the summer of 1961. George later gave the guitar to his friend Klaus Voorman in 1967 and 20 years later asked Klaus if he could have it back to use to record this LP. George's family has the guitar today.
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!
