ME!

December 1963, at age 12, I saw a picture of the Beatles in a teen magazine, immediately fell in love with Paul. Bought Meet the Beatles as soon as it came out with my babysitting money and was glued to the TV set in Feb. 1964 when they were on the Ed Sullivan show. And, as they say, the rest is history.

5th-beatle:
That's why I think he will tour Europe sometime between March and June, and the US in July/August.

That goes along with my theory that he will play Candlestick Park late August.

favoritething:Has anyone read that book "Growing Up With The Beatles"? That book was what I based my impressions on, for trying to figure out what it was like at the time.

Was that book close to anyone's experience?

Yes and most definitely YES. My whole life revolved around THEM.
My only regret is not being able to see them live, and came so close to the opportunity.

My favorite is a local band called "The Sun Kings". No wigs, no costumes, no fake accents, but they are fantastic...they do everything from early Beatles to solo tunes. And the best I have ever heard...hands down.

beatlesfanrandy:When they played San Diego the one and only time in 1965, some neighbor friends of mine were going and they invited me. My parents said no. I was only 8 but I remember that!

Randy....similar circumstances here. My grandfather lived 6 blocks away from the Cow Palace in San Francisco. I begged, pleaded, cajoled, cried, etc. to let me go and visit my grandfather and see the Beatles there in 1964, but they said "NO!". I still resent them for that, along with not letting me go to the Monterey Pop Festival in 1967...just a couple miles from our house.

The "Soaking all this in" tour.

The show was fantastic. Loved it all. Paul and Ringo really enjoyed the artists' performances. The performers seemed genuine in paying homage to
The Beatles. Did you catch Yoko dancing in the front to "I Saw Her Standing There"? Funny. I really liked that Ringo sang a few songs by himself. His performance of "Boys" was fantastic. Paul's voice on "Birthday" was a bit sketchy, but then he nailed it on all the rest.

The Letterman interview snippets seemed a bit stilted and awkward.

That doesn't take into account the millions of people that recorded the Beatles special for viewing later.
