What kind of Beatles fan are you?
« on: April 27, 2004, 12:08:18 PM »

I consider myself to be more of a dedicated Beatles fan than a hardcore Beatles fan because I don't have everything with the Beatles name on it or John, Paul, George & Ringo as solo artists but when I was about 12 years old in the mid 70's I knew the Beatles history, their classic rock albums & most of the solo albums even though I have to admit I almost got trapped into becoming a hardcore Beatles fan at one time which was driving me insane, wasting lots of money on crap like Ringo The 4th because he was an former Beatle along with thousands of books on them it seemed as well as other favorite artists but if you're a hardcore Beatles fan who wants to be buy everything with the Beatles name on it & former Beatles name on it, go ahead, because I'm a dedicated Beatles fan/rock fan who listens to everything without buying it & reads most of the books from the library instead without wasting money!!!

I'd have to agree with you Wayne.  I don't own every single piece of Beatle item known to man nor do I possess an encyclopedia of information about the band.  However, like you I consider myself a dedicated fan.  I can take any cd/album from the group and honestly say,"yes I enjoy this one as well."  People here at work may have a different impression of me since I nearly have the walls covered with Beatle/John Lennon posters.  So yes, I consider myself to be a dedicated fan.  And by the way, there's nothing wrong with being a hardcore fan.  I just haven't gone to that extreme.

I liked them all my life but I never was really a fan until a year or 2 ago. They're my favorite band now though.

I suppose I'm a semi-hardcore fan because I DO collect. I have all their original albums in both mono and stereo, and all the original singles,  I also collected shed-loads of bootleg CDs and videos over the years - but a stopped short of collecting all their solo stuff... I didn't buy an album unless I actually liked it.

I also go the annual Beatle convention in Liverpool... unless some damn relative is getting married that weekend! I certainly blend in with the Beatle maniacs there!!!!

I don't mind any sort of fab fan really, be they merely curious or a fanatical anorak - all interest is good! :D

According to maria, I am a "keen" fan.

So that must be what I am. Keen.

Mister Charlie and Maria are "bestest" friends.


I have always liked the Beatles and knew all their songs but I havn't really gotten into them until this past year so I am still learning.

I'd say that i'm a dedicated fan. I have McCartneys solo stuff handled and I have most of Johns. I'm currently into a George stage and i'm collecting his stuff as we speak. I have some Ringo stuff, but I havent really started on his stuff yet. I collect Beatle stuff, but i'm not out of control,,,,,,,,,yet!

Ah, I'm sure maria is just fine.  I prefer to address the post rather than the poster, when possible.  And I don't know her or anyone else here enough to say what anyone's like.

So no, tho I disagree with her and she with me, I would not hesitate to agree with her when the occasion arises.   

It just proves that we're both rather stubborn.  Not the worst thing. :)

I used to be a hardcore fan. When I started listening to them ten years ago I collected so many Beatles related items. I used to have my walls covered in posters when I was in high school and the whole top shelf of my entertainment unit holds Beatles books. Now I'd say I'm a dedicated fan. I only have two framed posters on my wall haha.

Recovering hardcore fan and ex- Ringo 4th  LP owner here! (Greetings to Wayne - never get throught the B-side!!).  So i was hardcore, until one time when I was listening Lennon (??) tuning his guitar in one of my bootlegs , I suddenly started to think; why I am listening to this ?? Now after beatles-rehab (and selling my LP: collection) I only brought  back official Beatle  albums. Well
