i wasn't one of the lucky ones as the betles and a love for rock and roll wasn't in my blood.

like colleen, i discovered through a project. in my elementary school (i was 11) i was in a rather gifted class, as they call it. each year, the "gifted classes" of the 4th, 5th, and 6th grade would do a presentation with reports and a show. i was picked to do the 60s and one of the things i had to include was music. boy was i lucky because through this project i learned about some great music. i borrowed the beatles album revolver from the library for the presentation and i was hooked. i mean, can you get a better album?

since the day i got the album i wanted to start a band and learned to play the bass. long live rock and roll!

I was 10 when I first saw them on the TV. I thought they were brothers, so alike they looked! My dad told me they weren't brothers, but that they used to dress quite similarly. Then my father pointed to one of them and told me he'd been assassinated. "The one with glasses", he told me, but I couldn't see any with glasses, the image was of the ready, steady, go program in 1964, so JOHN wasn't wearing his glasses. But then, the roof top concert came on the TV and I saw JOHN and when the image of 1964 came back later on, I just fell in love!!! And ever since!!!

Mr Weller got a lot of stick for that. He said it was unintentional, but in an earlier interview said the album was inspired by REvolver!

The Jam song Start is a total rip, but there is differences, in that Taxman is better :)
I Play Start on the bass...a shameless rip.

I was born 1972. My cousin played Beatles over and over when I was still a child. I just grew up enjoying their music.....TIMELESS!  8)

I rember going to see Help! and learning the words to Yellow Submarine.
I saw them on the news when they broke up - but didn't really understand the significance.
Got into them seriously in '76 when I left home and moved in with a bunch of hippies (that was in NZ, we were a bit behind the times then)

well it all started last year (04) when me and my (now bestest)friends (dani kristi and jenna(im brittney by the way)) were having a prty 4 dani(whose name is reale danille) and we were ridin 2 the pizza place (in the car) and jen said "put on 95.7 maybe there will be a beatle song on"( o yeah b4 this jen was a huge beatle fan(having loved them since she was lil), dani was a startin beatle fan, kristi had liked them a LIL bit and i had liked and heard sum of their music) and jus that second come together came on . jenn started to jump(while sitting) and sing sayiing it was a beatle song then she started singing the song we all though the song was pretty cool(i swore i thought i heard the tune on sum kind of video game)and then (after all the prty) we went 2 drop of jen and we went inside her house and when i saw her room i fell in luv with  them and decided (then started prancing around saying this) i was a beatle fan i then went home on the internet and got lots of pics then went through all ma parents vinlys (spel?)(bbut i found no beatle ones) then their cds(found the red album) and i guess the rest(as us applescruffs say it )is just history

I think it was in 1994 and my ex-friend had all the vinyl-albums which his mother gave him and we just started listening. The first cd I bought was the IMAGINE soundtrack. Never got tired of them.... Love
