Paul is my favorite and I'm happy to have seen him in concert in the
My sisters-in-law also like them, and we used to go to
Beatlefest in Los Angeles when I lived closer to that city. We even made
Pepper's costumes and dressed up like them. We had our picture taken with

I also collect some Beatles memorabilia.Here are pictures of my collection:
from my 2000 trip to London and two more photos of us dressed up in the Sgt.

On October 5th & 6th HBO and Martin Scorsese present GEORGE HARRISON: LIVING
IN THE MATERIAL WORLD. The film focuses the imaginative and inspired eye of one
of cinema’s most preeminent filmmakers on one of the world’s most influential
men. The film takes viewers on the musical and spiritual voyage that was George
Harrison’s life, much of it told in his own words. The result is deeply moving
and touches each viewer in unique and individual ways.
Academy Award-winning director Martin Scorsese traces Harrison’s life from his
musical beginnings in Liverpool through his life as a musician, a seeker, a
philanthropist and a filmmaker, weaving together interviews with Harrison and
his closest friends, performances, home movies and photographs. Much of the
material in the film has never been seen or heard before. The result is a rare
glimpse into the mind and soul of one of the most talented artists of his
generation and a profoundly intimate and affecting work of cinema.

very funny back story between the song "Yesterday" and the term "scrambled
eggs". We've included the little story from Wikipedia for you below] It's
a really great moment and we have it as an early preview!
Excerpt from "Yesterday" on Wikipedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yesterday_(song)
Upon being convinced that he had not robbed anyone of his melody,
McCartney began writing lyrics to suit it. As Lennon and McCartney were
known to do at the time, a substitute working lyric, entitled "Scrambled
Eggs" (the working opening verse was "Scrambled Eggs/Oh, my baby how I
love your legs"), was used for the song until something more suitable was
written. In his biography, Paul McCartney: Many Years from Now, McCartney
recalled: "So first of all I checked this melody out, and people said to
me, 'No, it's lovely, and I'm sure it's all yours.' It took me a little
while to allow myself to claim it, but then like a prospector I finally
staked my claim; stuck a little sign on it and said, 'Okay, it's mine!' It
had no words. I used to call it 'Scrambled Eggs'."
