I'm one of those people whose life was changed indelibly on the evening of February 9th, 1964, happily contracting a life-long delirium, one known forever after to trained physicians and layman alike as "Beatlemania". Since launching this site just over a year ago, various material dealing with the band has found its way into several different sections of Hembeck.com. With the 40th anniversary of the Lads' "Ed Sullivan Show" appearance looming, I decided to throw all caution to the wind, and post something about the Fabs everyday for the entire month (most of which wound up in my "Fred Sez" blog for February 2004). This proved to be such an enjoyable experience for me--and hopefully, for some of you out there as well--that I've decided to set aside an entire page specifically to round up all the stray Beatle-related material at the site, with the duel purpose of utilizing it as a home for completely fresh entries as well! Now, please don't expect any biographies, discographies, or exhibitions of photography--you can find those angles expertly covered elsewhere. No, what I promise to share with you are as many of the musings, memories, and minutia that I've amassed over the last four decades--delivered with a light touch, a critical eye, and a deep-seated affection--that I possibly can. So, enjoy yourself, friends, and feel free to come back anytime, anytime at all!...
