I knew my Retro Brother Dan had read the same news item I had seen that morning when I received the text message: “‘A Hard Day’s Night’ was 50 years ago? I guess we ARE old.”
I suppose he is right. It is awfully hard to put a youthful spin on anything 50 years old.
Since the beginning of our friendship, both Dan and I have discussed the impact The Beatles have had on our lives. We are aware many of the life choices we made over the last 50 years from learning to play guitar, forming a group and going on the road were due to the influence of the Fab Four. The Retro Brothers, our current musical project, includes several Beatles tunes in our repertoire, so I guess The Beatles continue to exert their sway.
