October 5, 1962

This date, 50 years ago last Friday, marked the first Beatles single released on Parlaphone records. Love Me Do was the Beatles first gold record and marked the beginning of their meteroric rise.

50 years, wow. Seems like yesterday to me.

Hank repleis, after a short pause: "Well, what else is there?"

It was just yesterday, wasn't it?

I have finally found happiness in my life.  Guitars, singing, beer and camping.  And they all intertwine wonderfully.

Re: October 5, 1962

srangely enough i was just watching mccartney in new york on tv, they cut in some footage from the original shea stadium concert. all i can say is he's still brilliant, the songs are still brilliant and he can still sing after 40 + years. he has to be 70 something now? it's just a shame lennon and harrison didn't make it. guess they're still jamming on some cloud!

There are two "L's" in Phill
