A documentary on George Harrison on BBC Two. I'm watching it with my father, he's telling me more about the Beatles' background while we're watching... I don't think there's anyone who knows more about the Beatles than my father. He's all like "oh yeah, they recorded this song in the winter of '63".
I'm watching it as well and have a dad who knows masses about Beatles (though he's not next to me to add bits of info), he liked Rolling Stones more but I always liked Beatles. So there isn't much new things in the documentary but it's still nice to watch.
Your father sounds like a super cool person
I like the Rolling Stones better, yet my mother is a huge fan of Beatles too.
In Finland it's tradition to have these baby books. They have bits of info about the baby growing up, first locks of hair, few photos or drawings later on when they're old enough to draw....
In my baby book, there's a bit that ask "What did your mummy sing/play to you when you were a baby?" answer is "traditional nursery rhymes". Then, "What did your daddy sing/play to you when you were a baby?" "The Beatles, Rolling Stones and other rock'n'roll classics"
This is why I've become what I am I think... When I was about 3, I really fancied the Beatles, especially Paul. I thought that they still looked the same as in the record covers, though (this was in late 80s)... My dad didn't have the heart to tell me John Lennon had already died, either!
I have a baby book! Well, most of one. I was the second and last child, so my parents were really too busy to fill mine in. I might just make shit up...
I don't have a baby book, but my mother's old lps and casette tapes still remain. She used to listen to the Beatles and Pink Floyd a lot. Growing up, i got bored of them so i usually listened to Iron Maiden, Dio, etc.
But now i like them better, i like all the 60s and 70s. I also like Bob Dylan and Rolling Stones. I think that era was a golden age for the music history.
