beatle dreaming

The Savage Young Beatles Photos of the Beatles 1950's-1963

Many of these photos are very well known and have been seen throughout the past 40 years but it's certain that you will find a great many that you've never seen.

The further we get from the Beatles, the bigger they become — in importance, influence and as a subject for research...

Yet the bigger the Beatles become, the smaller are the fragments unearthed. Almost everybody remotely connected to the band, from tea boys to chauffeurs, has now given us their memoirs
...Hunter Davies

(and I missed the significance of yesterday apparently... but you soon find out that every milestone is covered in the beatle-dreaming...)

John stole the harmonica used in this song in a music shop in Arnhem...

Well if you didn't know about it, perhaps it is not true. Adelaide radio has been known to be wrong before.

I thought it was 11/9 but that's only one of the recording dates apparently...

(Yeah yeah yeah - you should see how many Beatles questions I get wrong at Trivia these days...
can't even recognise the songs anymore ;)

I started to look at the photos and could not go on. all too sad. in the 1950's one with the caption about 'the future Mrs Lennon in an eyelock with Paul', John looks so much like his son Julian it's scary for me and must be worse for Julian.
In high school (1964) we loved the ANNA track from With the Beatles LP and 15 years later, my friend Joanne named her daughter Anna after it. awww.

I know what you mean about the sadness.

George looks scarily like his son Dhani too.

One of my nephews was named after one of the fab four...(not Ringo)
