He's so dang cute! I met his son Roag when the Pete Best Band came to town. In fact, I spent about four hours talking to him and playing pool. A really sweet person, his voice sounds just like his dad, same inflection and all! I too love Neil. Dana ; )

A very BIG thank you, Dana!!!  That is so cool.  Roag is a good person, as his dad, Neil, was.  Too bad Neil didn't know all these people liked/love him.  Maybe he does now...............now................and now..............

btw is there exists any audio of Neil's funeral where Pete Townshend played "My Sweet Lord" for him. I have read that he and Pete were quite close friends.
 just look at Pete, looks like he was so suffering after Neil's death :(

^ Most of the Aspinall video on Youtube appears to be from The Beatles Anthology, which we've probably all got. I can't find anything from the funeral, but don't let that stop you from looking.

^It's odd, because I do remember (or think I remember) seeing some footage of it somewhere. But I can't find anything at the BBC, CNN, MSNBC or Youtube. There are photos, though.

because rex.com probably have the most stupid register system I have ever seen in my life. ever try to register? don't worry, they will never let you in there, and probably noone was got in there. I always hated that website. they have so many great photos, but those pictures are 100 x 130 pixels. WFT I could do it with these kind of size of photos? ANYONE, HELP...
