I've been thinking lately, and let's be honest that is a rare occurrence, about how people got into The Beatles. For some it may have been as easy as hearing a few songs on the radio, or being alive when they were popular, or just accidentally stumbling on them in any number of other ways.
But for a lot of you, probably the majority, it goes beyond that. There was someone, probably in your childhood who was a big Beatles fan. Someone who knew every song by heart, for whom the songs went well beyond being music to an irreplaceable part of their lives. And that person made damn sure you listened and you understood. They probably hoped that by doing this you would become more enriched as a person but also so you would understand more about them. Maybe it was your parents, maybe an uncle, maybe a good friend, maybe an almost complete stranger but if this happened I bet you remember this story. And I bet it's a good one.
And I want to hear it.
You see the holidays are coming. People will be visiting their families and friends and more than likely seeing these people who introduced them to the world of The Beatles. A lot of you are probably thinking about going out and buying TB:RB for this person (and you may want to get on that - Limited Edition bundles and all!), not only to give back to them for sharing their love of this band with you but also so you can share a little bit about your passion - video games.
I want you to write about this person and how they got you into the band. I want you to write about WHY you want to give them The Beatles: Rock Band. I want a whole thread of awesome stories.
And when its all over I want to find one of the best and do something nice. This isn't a contest. And I am not going to define what this nice thing might be (as I probably haven't even thought it through entirely). I just kind of want to know these stories you have in you.
PS If you do write a story and hang out on the twitters make sure to post a link to your story from Twitter with the #BeatlesRockBand tag. We're gonna trend this game again. Believe you me.
