so far, not convinced

Music has no nationality, everybody adds their little bit to it and passes it on.
yep, the beatles chose the right name
it's Liverpudlian, very specific, there's nothing there
i could understand if it was london
yet then you remember they got records from America, first
i'm afraid, or rather, not afraid they are
no one else could get away with an Octopus' Garden
a few blokes from Liverpool
i admit they are my world
i hope you can escape them
they're not healthy in the long term
the beatles will drive you crazy, from start to finish
Well, they didn't suck.
What ho! Horatio! Still up...?
That's because for you they were just a local band from Liverpool. Over here that would like a Pop Group that came out of Bismarck, North Dakota. LOL
And if you can chew your own toes my hats off to you. I haven't been able to do that since I was about three.
He he. 10 year olds. Weren't many of the boomers about that age when they made these blokes rich and put them on a pedestal?
Like all good Liverpudlians, the Beat boys got the hell out of there as quick as they could, then spent the rest of their lives going on about how its the centre of the universe. Dey do doh, don't dey do?
We did this cover of a Beatles classic we are not a band just decided to get together and record a couple tunes . . I was elected to sing and it was fun .
I think the high mortality rate amongst musicians has played a part in the current state of music. So many artists/ groups never had a chance to mature in their original form. What would they have become, how would they have effected the course of music. Would the Allman bros have been different if Duane had lived, or Hendrix, SRV. How would the Who have been with Moon. The Beatles had a chance to grow together in a way that makes bands tight, makes them think and play as one. The other big factor is money. Folks work hard to get a hit and then stop being what they were that created the hit.
Pure pop geniuses, three of them in the same band, combined to create a perfect storm at a time when the world wanted to listen to what they were saying. That combined with a burgeoning of mass media technological developments got their sounds to the world. It doesn't matter if you like them, a couple billion people on earth love them, the greatest rock band ever: the Beatles. It can never be done again the way the Beatles did it.
Thank god for small mercies.
Hey Chabby welcome back. I got a new copy of Hard Days Night last year,amazed at how fresh and perfect these songs still sound.The alblum with Kansas city and Follow the sun is another classic. Growing up as a pre teen with this band,we would wait for each new record,each new listen better than the last.I remember being almost overwhelmed by how perfect the songs were,almost overload to my young mind,this was pre drug era by several years. Guess you had to be there,glad I was!thanks Fabs.
They are the reason that 45 years later,I am sitting here in my room full of guitars,posting on a Tele forum,maybe that is a little weird?
Oh, my gosh, I'm so.... Well, now I just feel terrible. Why didn't someone say something sooner!!!
