Thank you and contest winner
I want to send a special thank you to: Chuck Gunderson for the information he has supplied in his book, Some Fun Tonight as well as helping me with a few photo questions, Mark Naboshek for the information on the Dallas Show, Ivor Davis for his book, the Beatles and me on tour, Dee Ellis for the story she had about the Cleveland Show in her book, Confessions of a Beatlemaniac, Pat Simmons for allowing me to reproduce the story about Cleveland that originally appeared in With a Little Help from my Friends, Ted Rozumalski for allowing me to share the photos from the New Orleans show that his father took and all of you who sent me encouraging messages and emails throughout the month. I truly appreciated the big show of support as we traveled along with the Beatles 50 years later.
I plan on doing the same thing next year with the 1965 North American tour and I am starting to collect photos and stories to share. So---if you saw the Beatles in 1965 (anywhere in the world really) please write something about it to share on the blog!
Also just a reminder that I personally am looking to speak with anyone who saw the Beatles at Busch Stadium in 1966, George Harrison at the St. Louis Arena in 1974, or Paul McCartney at Busch Stadium at 1993.
If you have a story to tell, please email me at Starshyne9@yahoo.com
Now the moment you all have been waiting for! The winner of the Beatlemania contest! There were 38 contestants this time around, which I think is pretty good! The record for a contest I have held is 43 people and so this contest was second place. The winner needs to contact me through email with his or her address
And the winner is--------
Congratulations!! You are the Beatlemaniac winner. :)
Peace and Love,
