The beatles and thier drugs

The Beatles where highly influenced by drugs in theur later carrers. Some of thier song where written while on acid trips.  But it actually started back when they met up with Bob Dylan in their early years. He gave them drugs thinking that they where familiar with the substance. He had misread a lyric in their song " I Want to Hold Your Hand". He thought the line "I can't hide" was "I get high". they had never expirienced anything like it. They started using the stuff and even used it on the set of thier movie "Help". but when they went on a spiritual trip to india, Maharishi Mahesh Yogi,  thier spiritual teacher, said that they got in the way of your jouney to nirvana. so all the beatles and co. stopped . but one day they were invited to a dinner at thier dentits house. He was a good friend of thiers. so they went but they could only stay a while. as they where about to leave, the dentist and his wife told them to just stay for hot chocolate. Which they did.And as they where about to leave the dentists wife said " Well now you REALLY can"t leave" "Why not?" Asked George. " Beacause you have taken drugs, it was in the chocolate." The beatles freaked out and dizzily drove away. From then on john and George where back on the stuff. They felt it stengthend their spiritual connections. They never really used the hard stuff... just things like LSD and weed. I dont beleive that it got to the point of addiction and i think it was more of an extraordinary expirience for them.  Eventually though, george died of lung cacer. he smoked the most. But Drugs where the cause of songs like I Am the Walrus and many more.

Why the beatles????

some people might ask me " why do you only blog about the beatles????"  Well, its the only thing i know. I was raised listening to classical opera, donovan, audiobooks, rocky horror picture show { only the music} musicals, and my favorite: The Beatles. They ha catchy music, good voices, and most inportant to me at the time; they hade a cartoon movie. these cartoon charectors where real people! Imagine my excitement when i found this out! so, i wanted to find out everything, and i did....... mostly. im still learning but yeah... its what i know best and if i talk about anything else, well, lets just say i probably wouldnt do that. so there you have it.
                                                               always learning,

Beatles: Why did they break up?

I want you to take a good look at this picture..... are you done? good. This picture is a perfect representation of the beatls when they where divided.george and john ,paul and ringo. the beatles where in india on a spiritual vacation a little while before this picture was taken.After a while George and jhon became obsessed and ringo and paul left back home to start working again. this is where they started drifting apart. It was george and jhon vs paul and ringo.....well...sort of. They all became different in their own way. some say yoko ono, jhon lennons wife, had something to do with it. i personally think only the beatles know that for sure.

Beatles Trivial Pursit Review "With a Litttle Help from my Friends"

Recently I bought the game Beatles Trivial Pursuit  the collectors addition and Pplayed it with a friend who is helping me write this.as a beatles fan I am not impressed. the questions where either very simple or monumentally hard. some where barely about the beatles!!!!! For example "What did adults have to do to gain entry into the charity party attended by the beatles?"  the beatles where not the reason for the adults restictions, they where just their. Thats just one of the questions!!!  others wherequestions that only stalkers would know the answers to! I think The Beatles dont even know! I think that this should have been more focased on things like "who said what" and "name that song". Ya know? well, thats all for now
                                                                      stil kinda annoyed,
