    I was never a big beatles fan either, but they were big here in Canada for sure! Maybe among one of the best bands of all time.

    In 1964 my then girlfriend was a big Beatles fan so I got tickets for their Sept 16th concert at Montreal's Forum. There was so much screaming you couldn't hear the music. She loved it anyway, I was less enthusiastic. 🙂

    Personally I didn't see what all the fuss was about. I must say they did sell out everywhere they went. I think the women were bigger fans than the men over here.

    Abbey Road is almost too perfect a bookend for the greatest studio recording band in history.
    Many thanks to Sir George Martin! He was indeed, the 5th Beatle.

    Elvis Presley was Top of the charts at the time the beatles were becoming known.

    Some classic Lennon humour here. John talks about his quotes been taken out of context by the press between 1975-1980, rumours he was going bald and the legendary quote about Elvis Presley's death.. "When Elvis died they wanted a comment. Well I'll give it you now. He died when he went in the army. The rest was a living death - John Lennon.

    "He died when he went in the Army," but Lennon sat in front of Elvis speechless and in awe in 1965.

    For anyone interesting in knowing a little about Elvis meeting the Beatles. Perhaps I should have said the Beatles meeting Elvis.

    How strange; must have been a Canadian thing.

    I really have no idea but the sell outs would mainly be women and young teenage girls, the few men were drug there by their wives or girlfriends. At least that is the way it was in my part of Canada, doesn't make it a 'Canadian thing'!

    I noted in GBS post he wasn't a big fan either and he is in a different part of Canada and would know better what was going on there than I would. I am sure they must have had male fans also!
