Meet The Beatles.  Byrds' Mr. Tambourine Man.  Rolling Stones' Aftermath. Sir Adrian Boult conducting Tchaikovsky's Symphony #5. 101 Strings Play the Blues.  Beethoven's Ninth conducted by Ernest Ansermet.  If I had been born a little later, the list would probably have included, Never Mind the Bollocks, Ziggy Stardust, The Abbado-conducted Carmen and The Ramones Leave Home.
I was poor as Joe’s turkey, I listen to my friends until I could afford my own.. 12 years old until 15 or so..

The Beatles.

I didn’t like them, I learned too.. I didn’t have a choice.. I still know every word on every album and 45 ever made.. Dead skunk in the middle of the road.. What kind of lyrics is that? LOL

Really though, I'm glad I did. Kind of like learning the National Anthem, just something you need to learn, to heck with Shakespeare.

Regards
