Meet The Beatles
The Beatles’ music communicates to people, it touches them, it is fun and light-hearted, it is serious and cynical, it is frightening and dark; it embraces many preceding genres of music and spins them afresh. Most know the Beatles’ hits but few know their story. We’ll delve into the rich personalities of a driven but conflicted John, an eager-to-please but private Paul, a money-concerned turned spiritual George and the abrupt late addition Richy (aka Ringo), the emulsifier of the band. We’ll discuss how they met as teenagers, how they matured both musically and personally, and how they defined and reflected their time. Finally, we’ll discuss the factors that led to their break-up. “The deeper you go, the higher you fly. So come on!”
Meet Scott McLaren
Scott is a passionate Beatles fan since nine years old, having received the Meet the Beatles album as a gift. His interest in their music and each Beatles’ individual charm and unique personality led him to deep exploration of the Beatles’ story via books, seminars and classes. He has traveled extensively to Beatle sites including (but not limited to) Liverpool, Hamburg and London (including interviewing Roag Best, the son of the Beatles’ road manager and half-brother to the Beatles first drummer) to gain a better knowledge of their collective and individual stories. Furthermore, Scott has collected over 50 hours of rare interviews, press conferences, outtakes, studio banter, concerts and alternate song takes. Scott is a recently retired sales executive of 35 years with experience at Amazon Web Services, IBM and other technology companies.
