A BETTER BEATLES FAN....

with Aaron Krerowicz 
Beatles Scholar

What do you do on a cold November, Tuesday evening?! Well, if you are lucky enough to live in an area where Aaron Krerowicz, will speak, then you get in your car and go!  Aaron is the only Full-Time Professional Beatles Scholar in the United States! And, he is utterly fabulous. What a night. This professional Beatles Scholar gave a multimedia presentation on the Beatles. If you are able to make one of his FREE events (the link to his site is below) you will walk away with an even deeper appreciation of the Fab Four, and become an ever better Beatles Fan! Among other things, Aaron analyzes their songs, lyric by lyric, note by note and it’s fascinating…

I shared with the audience my life long affinity for the Beatles which I am glad to say only grows stronger. (See my last post for proof). I told them about how I saw the Beatles live, as a child. And, more recently I was interviewed for a book about the Beatles called “Beatleness,” by Candy Leonard (another Beatles expert). It may sound crazy but, at this point, the Beatles are in my blood.

Author Candy Leonard

At last night’s event, this Beatles scholar told us more about Yoko (her name means child of the ocean) George Martin (he was the one who wanted a different drummer, other than Pete Best, for recordings), and Aaron even had some amazing audio clips of Beatles interviews. The Beatles made magic. They had chemistry and a charisma (aside from the music itself) that allowed them to stay together for a decade! Now, that music and the Beatles themselves are enduring and timeless. 


As enjoyable and informative as the evening was, the highlight was the Beatles Music. I still get chills when I hear certain songs. Some of Aaron’s favorite songs are For the Benefit of Mr. Kite, and I am the Walrus. Not my two favorites, but, full disclosure here; I have not really paid all that much attention to just how innovative the Beatles were musically.  I absolutely love THE MUSIC, but, I was always more caught up in the Beatlemania, even recently when I saw Ringo up close. I was in an actual frenzy!


A night with Aaron (highly recommended) will give you much more insight into the genius of the music and even more appreciation of this “once-in-a-lifetime cultural force!”

 Goo goo k’joob!

For all us millions of Beatles Fans, Aaron has a website and has written books on the Beatles and more. Just go to: http://www.aaronkrerowicz.com/ he will tell you anything you want to know about John, Paul, George, and Ringo. IMAGINE....Aaron very generously gives you a chance to become an even better Beatles Fan then you were the Night Before....

I am sure there are many, but, what is One of your favorite Beatles Song? I would love to know....
Mentioned right above, The Night Before is one of mine, and  I'm Happy Just to Dance with You....

I can remember DISTINCTLY Revolver proved the Beatles were MUCH MUCH MORE than just a passing fad....listen to Tomorrow Never Knows....it STILL give me goose bumps...I'm also a firm believer that George Martin was the 5th Beatle. Yeah Yeah Yeah!

I was fortunate to hear Aaron speak. He is a real Beatle scholar with amazing knowledge and talent. Hearing about the life of the Beatles and how their music evolved was just astonishing and incredible. If you a true Beatle fan, you must read his 2 books. One is about the time of JFK and the rise of the Beatles and the other is about their artistry. Here is a trivia question by Aaron, how did the Beatles get their name. Renee should provide the answer in another posting for us avid readers and fans.

I will try to get his books as I am a true Beatle fan. However, I do not know how they got their name. Hmmm.... I am really curious.
My favorite Beatle songs are Yesterday and My Sweet Lord.
