Why another Beatles Web resource?

Well, although there are already thousands of Beatles-related websites, I wanted to have a different approach to the albums and songs, an oral history, with quotes from the Beatles and their producer George Martin, as well as others in the inner circle, plus quotes from acknowledged experts on The Beatles. Each entry includes an "infobox" (as developed by Wikipedia), and each song entry includes the best-quality YouTube video available for that song (which are frequently zapped by EMI and have to be replaced!).

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

Cheers! Tim
