Seeing the Beatles in London, 1965 (Anthony J Candil, USA, 06/22/22 8:23 am)

Dear friends,

Just a few words to let everyone know how much I enjoyed the latest posts from Consoly, David, Paul Preston and John E regarding the 80th birthday of one of the greatest musicians still on Earth: Paul McCartney.

Paul was at all times the inspiring soul of the Beatles, alongside the grumpy attitude of John and the awkwardness of George and his excentricities, introducing the sitar and Hindu music. No matter; I loved it! I even once thought of buying a sitar if I could have found a teacher.

I love Beatles songs and music, and I have all their albums and singles--even still the original vinyl ones.

Nevertheless I'm sorry to disappoint our friend Paul Preston, because I have also been at the Cavern in Liverpool! However, not in the early 1960s.

I play guitar and I have a collection of 21 guitars, some of the same models the Beatles used to play, and one is a Gibson with John's signature. And of course, I have an original Hoffner bass like Paul's own.

See some of them below. The Epiphone is similar to the one John played at the concert on the roof.

I forgot to mention that I attended my first Beatles concert in 1965 at The Palladium in London. It was my godmother's gift. And once I flew from London to Brussels seated next to Ringo Starr. He was a nice chap.

JE comments:  Tony, you've sat with Ringo, and you're sitting on a goldmine of instruments!  As a (frustrated and very bad) bassist myself, I am especially envious of your Hoffner (third photo).  There's nothing like that signature McCartney sound.  And he did it all left-handed!
