How it started:

"I was 8 when my long suffering parents bought me a plastic Beatles guitar for Christmas after I had whinged for weeks. It was pink and had the FAB FOUR'S faces and autographs on the front. I couldn't play it but I took it to bed with me for a few weeks."
(Michael Garrett, September 2011)
"When I was 9, I visited my Auntie Margaret in Liverpool. That's when I first heard about them. In the Saturday Daily Mirror they were flanked in a centre spread by Billy J Kramer and the Dakotas, and Freddy and the Dreamers. Whatever happened to them?"
(Phil Cooksey, November 2011)
"Later on I saw Magical Mystery Tour on the telly and would have killed for the wonderfully painted hippy guitar that George played on one track. I thought they all looked really cool and tried unsuccessfully to grow a beard."
(Michael Garrett, December 2011)
"My Granny bought me Sgt Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band for my 12th birthday (I asked her to) and thought it was a strange military band. 'Do they play marching tunes?' she asked. 'Well Granny, sort of', I said."
(Phil Cooksey, January 2012)

What they said about them:

"These lads cultivate a vague allusion to being musicians, in a gurgling sort of way."
(New York World Telegram, February 8, 1964)
"Visually they are a nightmare: tight, dandified Edwardian beatnik suits and great pudding-bowls of hair."
(Newsweek, February 24, 1964)
"You don't want to listen to this rubbish, do you?"
(Phil's dad)
