I've Never Seen Anything Like It

When I was a little kid, my (much) older brother took me to the Cinema to see Help!. The girls screamed throughout the whole movie whenever the Beatles were on the screen. My brother stayed until the evening show hoping the adults wouldn't scream so much and he could hear what was going on. He's a left-handed bass player, too. I'm a right-handed bass owner.

Whenever I hear people mention the Beatles when talking about how popular such-and-such a cultural phenomenon is, I know what a fraud it would be to compare anything to it. I've never seen anything like it.

My father a Liverpool police officer sneaked my older sister into the Liverpool Empire to see the Beatles when on duty back in sister still talks of it.Growing up in Liverpool it is impossible to escape the Beatles legacy(especially musicians)but over time I have come to love the memories they evoke..pretty nifty tunes too!
