50 Years...

It was on 18th August 1962 that The Beatles played their first show with their official new drummer. From then on (and eternally), they were John, Paul, George and Ringo.
In honor of this special occasion, I typed up a letter of sorts...
* * *

Dear George, Paul, Ringo and John!


Today marks the 50th anniversary of Ringo's first appearance as the new drummer... the beginning of the constellation John, Paul, George and Ringo that was set to make history.


Who could have imagined, 50 years ago, that you would still be the greatest band on earth? The most influential? The biggest act rock has ever known? Who would have dared to dream that you would be the best-selling artists of the first decade of the 21st century – and that your songs would still be the ones all others are measured against? That four boys from Liverpool would change everything? 50 years on, there are still legions of fans, old and new, who adore you and to whom you mean the world (myself included).


50 years of incredible music... and of triumphs and tragedies. So many who would undoubtedly have been proud to see this 50th anniversary are no longer with us – your parents, Stu, Brian, Mal, Neil, Derek, Maureen, Linda... John and George. Life is so fleeting, but it's your music that was, is and always will be timeless and immortal.


As fans celebrate half a century of The Beatles, I'm sure I speak for many when I extend a sincere thank you to the four of you...

for being you

for giving us such joy with your incredible music

for making us smile and laugh

for giving us hope

for inspiring and influencing us

for changing the world

and for so much more than words could ever fully convey


George, Paul, Ringo, John – you are remarkable and your music is an inextricable, irreplaceable part of the world… and my life. Though I've said it before, I'll happily say it again - you will always have a space in my heart.


Lots of love from one of your biggest fans,
