Hey hey, I'm back from my trip to England, and I managed to make every day a Beatle day. I went on a rock n roll tour that was amazing, and saw such Beatles sites as MPL, Trident Studios, the Bag O Nails, Savile Row, and a lot more. On a trip out to St John's Wood, I saw Tony Bennett being filmed outside Abbey Road Studios, walked the crosswalk, and I swear I saw Heather Mills driving a Mercedes on Cavendish Avenue. I bought enough cds that my Macca collection is almost complete, save for the period between Pipes, Broad Street, Press, and the live albums.
I also learned that my aunt was a massive Beatles fan as a child, joined the fan club, and even saw the Beatles in Worcester before they were banned (oooh). She naturally got all the fan club perks, christmas discs, etc...and then, to my horror, had to burn them all because she was moving into a new house and there was no room.
And boy, there were a lot of books. Blackbird Singing, I Saw Him Standing There, The Complete Beatles (Lewishon), and the Beatles Diary 1970-2001. I also got a little Hofner bass.
Just excited to have new things, that's all.
