When I was about 9 years old (2002) I heard the song "Yellow Submarine". My parents had recently gotten the "1" album and I listened to the song. Then the next song played. Then the next. And it continues on like that. After listening to that CD alone for about a year, I started getting more, starting with their first two, "Please Please Me" and "With The Beatles".
In 4th grade I did a biography project on Paul McCartney. I also did some art projects involving the Beatles (still do). I saw Paul in 2005 and then again in August (where I first played TB:RB)
I still remember the day I got the email from thebeatles.com announcing TB:RB, and I didn't know how I'd wait it out. But I did, and here we are. Since I got this game I've probably played at least 3 hours a day (would be more if it wasn't from the whole "school" thing).
The Beatles have been my favorite band for 7 years, and I know that they will always be. They've influenced everything about me and whenever I feel sad I just turn on a Beatles song and everything is all right.
