I can't be the only member from Egypt, the Fab Four had a huge following over here, to the point as my dad told me, when Help! got released in theatres, it was filled with screaming Egyptian girl teens.

Hello all,

I just joined up on this forum a few weeks ago. I currently live in the sunny climes of Florida, USA. I originally lived in Maryland. I've been a Beatles fan since January, 1964, which means...I am older now.

I discovered the Beatles in a two-step process. My local record store had a big sign in the front window: "The Beatles Are Coming!" Okay, big deal. So what? I few days later, my "local deejay" played, without an introduction, a record that began with tom-toms, followed by jangly guitars and tight harmony. It was "She Loves You", and I was hooked before the record was over. Yes, it was a BIG DEAL!

So I saw them on Sullivan, bought all their records, watched the cartoons, went to their movies, read all the magazines, saw them in concert etc. I own a huge library of Beatle-related books, magazine articles, and other bits of printed knowledge. At one time, I could whip anybody's butt in Beatles trivia. I once won a Beatles-trivia contest in the 1970's that was done, Jeopardy-style. The answer: November 21, 1941. The question: When was Pete Best born? The end game involved looking at pictures of the Lads from different time periods and naming the date the photo was taken. Whoever came the closest, won. Heh-heh. Too easy.

Any road, sometimes I may post messages that are based on my memories rather than documented sources. Please feel free to point out if I am factually wrong. No offense will be taken. I'm usually right, but I've also been proven wrong from time to time. I'll just hand my "Certificate of Accomplishment" from the trivia contest over to you.

Oh, and having been influenced by the Lads sense of humor, when in doubt, read my posts twice to make sure I'm not just being a cheeky smartass. No offense intended.

See you on the forums.

Hi all,
I'm new to the forum as of yesterday and am pleased to be here to discuss my all time favorite band. I live in N.ew Hampshire, USA. I'm 56 years old.  I remember being 7 years old and standing (jumping) on our hassock with my Beatle wig during the Ed Sullivan Show when the Beatles first played here. I've come to appreciate my folks listening to "I saw Her standing There" and "I want to Hold your hand" over and over again which i played constantly. Akways have loved the beatles and found them fastinating and always will.
Good Listening!
Dave

Welcome Dave! That's a cute story. Did anyone get pictures and did the hassock survive? I'm told I jumped around a good bit that night too but I had to do it in a bouncy seat since I was too young to stand up on my own.  :)

Greetings!
Just saw that I am the newest member on these boards: Hello there, Applescruffs!

1. REAL NAME: Darrin Forsythe
2. COUNTRY OF RESIDENCE: USA
3. AGE: 51
3. SOMETHING INTERESTING (OR BORING!) ABOUT ME: (May not actually  be boring but:) I am an avid Star Wars fan who also costumes as Darth Vader with the 501st Legion. The 501st is a worldwide costuming club that makes appearances for charity wearing movie quality costumes.
My Vader costume is an Ep. III (Yes, all 4 are different) that I have more than 4 grand into!
I love the Beatles & Star Wars! Been playing drums since I was 13. Yes, I have played the drums while wearing my Vader costume! (I have video!)
Great to be here!

All the best,
Darrin

Welcome Darrin! Darth Vader drumming is an interesting mental image that I've never pondered before.  ;)

Thanks Kelly,
No the hassock's long gone and no pic's with me and my wig. Grew it for real several years later!

Hi - new to this forum.
I was born when the Beatles were just starting to get popular so indirectly I grew up with them.
I have fairly eclectic musical tastes but I keep coming back to their music..

I'm British born but have lived in Italy for over 20 years.
I occasionally give talks in a local music school, and in secondary schools, sometimes about The Beatles and John Lennon in particular.

What a great site...so much detail! I got here because I was researching into the phenomenal year that was 1967!
