No one ever thought that the destiny of Rock n Roll and all things good could spawn from the ashes of a Northern English city called Liverpool. It started rather innocuously with four boys hankering around Hamburg and the Cavern with guitars on their back, playing exhaustive sets and injecting a little love back into a barren musical landscape. The fat cats in London showbiz blinkered a blind eye to Mersey beat as pop producers Decca turned down the fab four and Parlaphone swooped in for the kill.
You could say the release of the band’s debut album was rushed to cash in on the number one success from the title single released only a month earlier. With George Martin behind the desk, scrimping on a measly 400 pound budget and with only three days to spare, it didn’t take long to piece together what was essentially an amalgamation of the bands live set.
Please Please Me hit the charts and started the screams that would follow the Beatles for the rest of the 60’s. It seemed Beatle mania was just what the world wanted and needed as Please Please Me skyrocketed to success, remaining at number one position for no less than 30 weeks.
The wheels were in motion and there was no getting of the fast rolling ride that would become Beatle Mania as we are about to find out on our journey through the magical, mystery tour which is The Beatles.
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
