The Beatles!

Last Update: June 26, 2017

I am a HUGE Beatles fan - have been since I was about 2 or 3 years old! I was born in '62, so I wasn't really in that generation. But I have a sister who is 10 years older than me, so she was responsible for babysitting me quite a lot. And she and her friends would be listening to John, Paul, George and Ringo, and I was a little ham and would dance and jiggle and do my best to sing along to all the great songs! My love for the Beatles has stayed with me my whole life.

I was devastated when John was killed in 1980. What a tragedy. I hope his murderer rots in jail and never sees the light of day again.

Anyway - this is meant to be a happy post. I have Sirius/XM Satellite radio in all my vehicles and they recently added The Beatles Channel! I wondered why they didn't have one, I don't know - maybe they couldn't reach an agreement with the remaining two members of the band, Paul and Ringo. But on May 18, 2017, the new Beatles Channel premiered! I am loving it! They play great music - a lot of the oldies, and they also play music that each of them did after they became solo artists. I am having so much fun on the drive to and from work every day, listening to my favorite band of all time.

I have been fortunate and been able to see Paul in concert seven times! Every time he goes on tour and is anywhere near where I happen to be, I make sure to go. Can't believe he's still rocking and touring - he turned 75 on June 18th this year!

And, I was lucky to be able to see Ringo and his All-Starr band once too. It was at the Gorge at George - that's George, Washington. It is a beautiful outdoor venue, overlooking the Columbia River.

Just wanted to share my love for The Beatles and the new Beatles Channel! Are any of you here at WA Beatles fans?

Have a great day!!

Julie

Yes, I've been so lucky. I've seen him all around the country (US) because I've lived in so many places. So much fun!

I LOVE the Beatles! I have come close to seeing Paul on two occasions, but neither worked out. I am starting to be concerned that I won't ever manage to do it.

I've been really lucky to have been able to see him so often. I've lived a lot of different places around the US and he's come to where I've been many times over the past 20 or 30 years. So check this out - first time was in Seattle at the KingDome, sometime in the early 80's. Then in Phoenix, then Dallas, Chicago (at Wrigley Field - that was awesome!), Kansas City, Kansas City, and then in St Louis last year at the Cardinal's stadium. And, I've got a ticket to go see him in Des Moines next month! Woo hoo!

In the US 1964 was the great year for them. I still remember Ed Sullivan introducing them to America live!

I've seen reruns of that show - I don't remember the live show as I was only 2 at the time! :)

Thanks Pablo! Yes, they are (or were, sadly) all very talented. Really miss John and George. Really love to go see Paul in concert. In fact, I have a ticket for a show in Des Moines, Iowa next month! Woo hoo!
