    Funny. When I see a thread about an artist or band I don't like (and there are plenty), I just ignore it. Fans are chatting about someone they like. Who am I to insert my opinion and sour the mood ?

    That Paperback Writer intro tone is still one of the best ever. SG into cranked Voxac30? I’ve got both and can get it there.

    That rosewood-neck tele... :):):):):)

    Edit- I guess it's an all-rosewood tele? Even cooler.

    I have been ambivalent to the Beatles' music for most of my life; I always liked heavier, more distorted guitar, more raw music. I also didn't have parents who were into rock n roll so I had to find my way into music on my own and the Beatles weren't part of that journey. As I got older, I have grown to really appreciate all that the Beatles did for music, for the industry, for recording technology, etc. I love a lot of George's post-Beatles stuff (huge fan of the Wilburys!!). And through all this, I have remained largely ambivalent to the Beatles' music. There are some cool songs here and there, but I've never owned a Beatles album and never sat down to just "listen to the Beatles". As I think about it, there are a lot of little things that don't really have much to do with the music that pushed me away from being a fan over the years.

    However, after watching the movie "Yesterday", it really struck me how much worse a place the world would be without their existence. Being not a Beatles fan, the movie was mildly traumatic when I viewed it through the lens of "What if my favorite band, or at least one of my big influences, had never existed?" (Side note: my life would be quite different if Tom Petty had never happened, or if Eddie Van Halen or Angus & Malcolm had never existed. What if Kris Kristofferson had pursued a military career instead of wanting to make music...)

    It kinda freaked me out, even though all in all it was a fun movie. It really made me appreciate them more, and hearing all those songs again in that context, where the main character was reverse engineering them in the studio, really helped me see what great songs the Beatles wrote and how brilliantly creative they were. I still don't consider myself a Beatles "fan", but everyone who plays or listens to popular music and rock n roll owes them some gratitude. Even "...bloody Ed Sheeran". ("Hey Dude? Really?")

    a small town up river from me is having an annual all day 12-9pm Beatles Fest benefit to raise money for their summer blues fest and I get to put a band together for a set. We're doing: Because, Norwegian Wood, If I Fell, The Night Before, and You're going to Lose that Girl. It's a blast and I pull out the Ric and Ac15

    The world was dreary and 'black and white' during the Beatles era. Me and my mates in late 60s early 70s Merseyside dreamed of California, which seemed like some magical place, inhabited by suntanned gods and goddesses, who surfed all day long! Rose tinted spectacles.

    Personally, I think the world of popular music (whatever that is) owes as much to Motown, The Kinks and Bob Dylan, as to the Beatles.
