The fabulous Moptops. Started out as rockers, took advice to present themselves as the clean cut `boy nextdoor band` ( huge marketing brand )along with a host of other `merseysound` bands. Their musicianship cant be questioned as well as their influence on popular culture. Did they smoke pot, drop lsd, and climb aboard the peace bandwagon as a pose to stay in the limelight ? Did you ever see them as influential on your life, or just something apart that allways seemed to be around ? Damn, they were good at it either way.-

George was my favourite. The icing on the cake. For a lot of us it was the first time we heard modern guitar breaks. He slipped in and out of the songs like a maestro.-

- I admire lead guitarists; they are awesome pickers-

There\'s no doubt these 4 guys turned the music world upside down and reinvented rock n roll and paved the way for the British invasion.Hard to ignore the genius of Lennon.Always been my favorite followed by George,Ringo and Paul.Favorite song is \"In my Life\"Wish I would have saved all the Beatle memorabillia I had from the 60\'s,but that required forsight which is hard for a 16 year old kid to grasp.-

I had hundreds of Beatle cards and also of the NHL. I had them at home, but when I moved away from my parents; they disapeared. They would be worth a fortune today. I had numerous Pocket Rocket`s rookie card and most of the original six players of the 60s. I asked my parents and they could never find them. -

Even if you weren`t that fond of love songs it was essential to know what made the girls tick ! I wooed my first girlfriend with a beatles love songs instrumentals album playing in the background. -

And I love her. That song must have had many a love sick, puppy love victim in turmoil wondering what his girl friend was doing. Thank god they started making proper records a few years in. -

I remember seeing A hard day\'s night about 20 times in the course of a week.Seems like every girl I knew could relate to \"if I fell\"-

the only time i was fortunate enough to see the Beatles was when their plane stopped in Winnipeg for refueling

They played our local cinema that year. I remember at shool, in the infants, kids would come round each classroom and show off new toys they got for xmas. Kind of put on a little show. First one boy brought in a whacking great model Boeing about 3ft long. Then a boy with a plastic beatles wig and plastic beatles guitar came in and mimed to one of their songs.-

Think that\'s what they call \"show and tell\"here.Kids bring an object to school and talk about it during class.I still have all my old Beatle records,a jigsaw puzzle,Beatle lunch box,and some other stuff.The records are of course all scratched up but I do have an e.p.with a picture sleeve of \"my Bonnie\" that seems to be worth a few bucks.-

Hard to believe but 6 yrs in this was the last time our fab four donned their trademark beatle suits, and the moptop haircuts were soon to go. Allready that summer my girlfriend had me walking around with buttercups in my hair and the Floyd were happening.We had so much fun with this;

The part in the middle where Lennon swings his guitar around his back and points to the camera is a trademark Elvis move.Probably his way of honoring the king.We did have fun with the whole \"flower power\"\"peace and love\"scene.Was a great time.The best time of my life for sure.-

Mm, that passed me by. I think I was busy looking at Ringo working up a sweat ( or not ) Sometime I wish I`d been born a few years earlier, I might have been more involved in the concert side of things at the outset. The flipside of `Hello Goodbye` was the mighty `I am the Walrus` -

Yeah I miss those days. The last hurrah of the amateur spirit. I`m optimistic though. Those days will return once the politcians are hounded out. Not long now. #2 Lennon, free as a bird. It`s our duty to restore normality. Oh dear, I`m still dreaming. -
