We're looking for Beatle fans who can write!

If you'd like to become a contributor to this new Beatles wiki, we'd love to hear from you. We need folks who are mildly tech savvy (can work in the Wiki format), can write well, and love the Beatles, particularly the obscure. A splendid time is guaranteed for all!

Currently, this is a moderated wiki, and in order to become an editor/contributor, you'll need to request registration. Create an account.

We can help folks with the technical aspects of contributing to this wiki.

The Song & Album Pages – an Oral History

Our approach is to have, on each album's and song's main page, an oral history, with quotes from the Beatles and their producer George Martin, as well as others in the inner circle, plus the occasional quote from an acknowledged expert on The Beatles. Each also includes the "infobox" (cribbed from Wikipedia), and each song entry includes the best-quality video available for that song (and these are often zapped by EMI and have to be replaced!).

We will be adding separate pages for each song for comment, interpretation, etc.

We hope there are some Beatles fans out there who'd like to be a part of this project.

Cheers!
