When they settled on the name The Beatles, it was in homage to Buddy Holly's "Crickets". It was also a play on the "Beat" music they ( Not only The Beatles, but all the Mersey bands) were into. Speaking of Mersey bands, I am friends with a guy named Chris Huston. You may not recognize the name, but he was a guitar player with The Undertakers, another Mersey band who were much more popular than The Beatles before they (The Beatles) went to Hamburg. Chris also was a producer in the LA area in the late 60s and 70s. Among some of his credits are Led Zeppelin II. These days he's a ( very conservative I'll add) studio designer based in Tennesee. His daughter and her husband are both decorated combat pilots with tours in Iraq and Afghanistan.Have got some old Beatles A/V tapes buried someplace. But until then?
Another one and example:
I feel like I'm telling you things you already know Bob, but you may not know this about me, I am a massive Beatles fan. In fact the only other web forum I belong to is one dedicated to The Beatles and more specifically the gear ( guitars, amps, recording stuff) they used.
