It's Not Like It Was Before: Some Post-Fab Socializing and Near-Reunions
Book Excerpt (Chapter 32) of Fab Four FAQ2 by Robert Rodriquez
All of the available evidence suggests that the last time all four Beatles were together in one place was on August 20, 1969; the occasion as to oversee the final mixes of Abbey Road. From that point onward, three ex-Fabs at most would gather at any one time (notwithstanding the hoax that all four reunited in secret for a November 1976 recording session). Though they eventually resumed cordial relations, the split's effect of generating four separate careers made even casual get-togethers difficult.
Of course, each would assist another on recording projects from their breakup onward, but only once were three of them in the studio simultaneously-for the recording of John's "I'm the Greatest" during the Ringo sessions-and even that was a bit of a fluke. All four seemed to possess a certain self-consciousness about "Beatling" together that kept them from being as close as they otherwise might have been, given the enormous weight of expectations that came from being former Fabs.

In November, I visited the John Lennon art exhibit currently going on in downtown Chicago at the Hard Rock Hotel on Michigan Ave. It was very cool and a great opportunity to get some John Lennon art for your home. Unfortunately, being a single mom I am not in a financial position to be buying art at this point, although I really wanted to get a charming little drawing of John and Yoko in a pie bed called "American Dream". Here is an article on John Lennon Artwork. You may also want to check out some of the artworks Yoko has posted on her flicker account. Read article on John Lennon artwork.

Beatles Lyrics Illustrated
April 13, 2008 - I checked out the Beatles Lyrics exhibit yesterday at Northwestern University and it was awesome... doodles and scribbles and all...and there is even a bit on Yellow Submarine where the "life of ease" line is scratched out with an arrow pointing to it with the word "disgusting" written in. Hmmm...wonder what John(?) was thinking when he wrote that? The Word is watercolored and I found it surprising how similar John and Paul's scrawls looked. Aside from the song, For No One, most of the songs stayed pretty much how they were written. The name of And Your Bird Can Sing was changed from You Don't Get Me. Please see the Tribune article by Lou Carlozo and the accompanying video by Stuart Shea from Beatles FAQ. They give an excelllent presentation on the Northwestern exhibit.
These Revolver era songs are only going to be on display until April 18, so if you are in the Chicago area over the next week, go see this great piece of Beatle history before it's socked away and you'll have to go to the British Library in London to see these types of manuscripts.
Other news: Tina just turned 18 and Henriette is getting married next month. Congrats to both of these Beatle people. BTW, neither the birthday party nor the wedding will be held under the stairs at the Hyatt O'Hare. ;-)
Beatle-Fans.com is the place for die-hard Beatle fans to get their Beatles fix. We love The Beatles!
Happy New Year, everyone. Hope you had a fab gear holiday. We wish you happiness, good health and prosperity in 2008.
We have recently updated the website. We've added tons of merchandise, posters, t-shirts (many under $10!), collectibles and more. We even have a Rolling Stone cover shop where you can order your favoriite Beatles cover framed. We also made a page for a popular Chicago Beatle Band who will soon be heading off to the UK, The Cavern Beat, and special holiday page where you can take a peek at our Christmas tree and see one of our special Beatle Christmas tree ornaments and view our hand-picked selection of Beatles holiday related videos and Christmas greetings.
We have also added many new articles to the site recently and several new bands and attractions (such as an upcoming Linda McCartney photo exhibit) to our listings. We have also enhanced our news section with the Beatle Minute radio podcasts and feeds from the UK club. The news section is a great place to get your daily beatle fix.
We have tried to make navigating the site pretty easy. The buttons at the top (that look kinda like the Cavern wall) take you to various sections of the site. For example, the video button in the menu leads to the Beatle music videos page and you can go to the solo Beatle video pages from there. If you ever want to get back homeward, gently click on Ringo's nose at the top of the page. ;-)
The top navigation buttons for Beatles, John, Paul, George and Ringo lead to the article pages on each Beatle. The buttons for sections other than articles are somewhat in alphabetical order, followed by the articles buttons and a search button at the end.
Take a look around the site and have a wonderful time exploring. We set up this site because during our Beatle pilgrimage to London and Liverpool England during Beatleweek 2007, we had such a lovely time that we decided to share our experiences and photos with other Beatlefans around the world... so we set up this site to connect other Beatle fans like us. During the research for our trip we found tons of resources and we share many of them on this site. If you would like to contribute articles or original artwork, photos or suggest videos, attractions or just say hi, please contact us.
