Thread Name: Beatles: Please Stop!
Subject: RE: Beatles: Please Stop!
Yep... sort of.

For someone like me, who was born in 1967 and didn't discover the Beatles until many years after they were no longer the Beatles, some of the reissues and reprints are GREAT because I didn't get to have them the first time around. But it can be cumbersome, and vampirish, so I won't argue that.

This year is the 20th anniversary of John Lennon's death, though, so don't expect the necrophilia to end anytime soon.

I had always been envious of my husband, 12 years older than me, because he had seen the Beatles on the Ed Sullivan show. Early in the summer, one of the networks did a special on rock music on the Ed Sullivan show - so I finally got to see the Beatles! It was a great thrill for me.
