A few Beatles posts (I have gathered about 300 different links during this unexpected break from blogging, and many of them will be duly added on here. Many of these first posts will not give the appropriate credits, unfortunately...) -

John Lennon's psychedelic 1965 Rolls-Royce Phantom V . Found thru one of Alan W. Pollack's exhaustive links.

George Harrison MBE playing the Banjo Uke.

The Beatles' Rolling Stone covers from 1967-1997

It was 40 years ago today: "The Beatles Are Coming" : Imagine if the internet had been around in the early 1960's. Experience the birth of Beatlemania through a daily Beatles Blog from 1964.

By the way, the little brain dude that is the logo design for the new blog (taz calls him "GABIE" after Grow-a-Brain/GAB + Gabriel Garcia Marquez) was originally drawn by Alonzo in Seattle. Thank you, man.

What do you think about the little Gabie?
