luvvvv those liverpool lads! who was your favorite? I remember when Time Magazine had a centerfold poster of the Beatles (clothes on, all proper like), I hung it on my closet door and spent too much time making out with Paul.

my daughter (10) is a fan, she's reading a book on the beatles. smart girl, eh?

EEk phd! Do you know my first crush on anyone was on Paul. I was 12 and he had recently formed Wings. But it was all a part of a much bigger love affair with the Beatles, inspired by me big bruvver.

Big Bruvver, he had sat with me for a number of hours some time before, my first night staying up so late, and gave me a complete Beatles run down. All those stories behind all those songs.

The next morning he took me to the RECORD shop and bought me "Beatles 1967 - 1970" double album and John Lennon and the Plastic Ono bands' recent single "Meat City".

Send your daughter to me! I will toast her indefinitely! Clever , adorable child!

Yeah, Paul was the most dreamy Beatle, by far.

My fondest Beatles memory -- in my best friend's basement, playing pool (billiards), and listening to Sgt Pepper and Revolver albums.. hours and hours, weekend after weekend. The albums belonged to her older brother who was a John Lennon lookalike, all hippie and radical and dope smokey. Brilliant songwriting on both albums, tho. A musical awakening for me. I'm taken back, esp listening to Revolver.

Revolver is a particular favourite of mine too. Your story is great, I think you and I should publish a modern archetype : The Older Brother Who Knew The Beatles.

Whaddya think?

Oh, and of course the feminine partner: The Younger Sister Who Then Knew The Beatles And Shared.
