Re: Forever Fab?

googoogajoob! It is strange seeing what is now an almost 50 year old band still being advertised as if new. But the music has remained timeless - and for that reason, there will probably still be posters/pictures (whatever the technology at the time will be) of the mop-tops in another 50 years time. Hard to believe that some "experts" predicted as early at 1960 that rock n roll music was a passing fad and would probably not last the decade.

The Beatles were a bit before my time - but growing up in the UK, I had obviously heard of them and seen the old pictures on TV many times. However, I hadn´t really appreciated the music fully. A friend of mine back in 1988 bought a new fangled thing called a DVD player - so he was (foolishly) throwing/giving away all his tape cassettes! I was a student at the time - so I rescued about half of his collection - many of which were full Beatles Albums.  While studying, I played the tapes - and it was only then that I realised "wow!!" Beatles music is...weird/different/strange/catchy...hard to put it into any category. When I heard "Piggies" I thought - what was THAT!!?? Suffice to say I now have my own complete collection of all Beatles Albums and know every song by heart!
