For some reason, these four guys have always fascinated me, and I was pretty sad to find out, at a tender age of about 4 years old, that I will never have the chance to see those four perform together.
Over the years, my personal taste in music shaped, from the not-so-glorious techno-phase, via gansta rap, to my now fairly broad range of classical, rock, and indie music. Yes, I even admit to enjoying the occasional Indian Bollywood musical.
But one band that has followed me since my earliest childhood are the Fab Four. I remember singing "Yesterday" in school or "Hey Jude" with the girls in the car. I enjoy the individual music of John Lennon and Paul McCartney; Sitting back and listening to "Imagine" while nursing Calvin is so relaxing, almost meditative, I feel so refreshed after only a few minutes of rest and recharging with our baby.

A couple of weeks ago, the wonderful Lisa of The Meaning of Me asked who would be interested in participating in a blog tour arranged by a friend of her's the fabulous Starr Bryson at The Insomniac's Dream as part of a promotion for the Relive the Beatles '64 Concert in September of this year, and for the new book set to be released by the one person who organized the only Beatles concert tour in the US back in 1964 (imagine, my mom was only 3 years old at that point!!), Pat DiCesare. Today, the first part of Pat's guest post on how music shaped his life and how he came to be one of the most successful promoter in U.S,. concert history went life on Linda's blog, Elleroy Was There, with the second part airing right here on Life, Unexpectedly this coming Friday, March 13.
Please head over to visit Linda, read about Pat, and don't forget to come back here on Friday for the second part of the story!
