I was thinking back to when I first read about the Beatles, I was reading a story about them in an issue of time magazine while having lunch in my classroom in mid -1963. I remember showing my friend the photo of these guys from England with long hair! At least it was the longest hair that most people saw then and how they wore it, little did I know what effect they would have on me and a whole bunch of other kids!
It was Beatlemania in its infany and I was soon caught up in it. It was like 6 songs in the top 10 charts at once! I was a big fan of Elvis in the 50’s and always wanted to learn and play a guitar one day and so I did because of talented people like this.
This photo is from the original Help album I still have and plays fine!
