Well weren’t they something?? They changed music. But more importantly, unlike their Mersey compatriots, they did not get stuck in the rut of their success and changed from a band of R&B and Rock ‘n’ Roll into an experimental band that pushed back the boundaries musically and lyrically.
They were also the band I grew up with.
I first heard the Beatles when that first album came out – round at my friend Tony’s house – I Saw Her Standing There – Fabulous. I was fourteen and smitten. From then on I bought every single and album the day they came out and grew along with them. By the time they split up I was a long-haired fully fledged twenty one year old veteran of the London Undreground.
So the Beatles mean a lot to me. I will be playing Beatles all day – Loud and LOUDER!!!
