Life of a Beatlemaniac….



Beatles: *waving and just breathing*image




OK, I’m going to tell you a little story. My story of The Beatles. I love them since my childhood because my parents loved them, so I got used to listen to them (and other great rock artists too! my parents have a very good taste!). Anyway, my favourite became Paul and my sis favourite was John.

As a teenagers, all our classmates loved Back Street Boys, Spice Girls and Britney Spears, while me and my sis loved The Beatles. As my favourite was Paul, my favourite Beatlegirl was Linda (the only one I knew about), and my sis loved more Cyn than Yoko. These were the first Beatlegirls we knew about.

Then Linda passed away (RIP) and in an article there was a pic of Paul and Jane, and I read she was a stage actress. I was an amateur stage actress back then too, so I got interested in her. Then we bought The Beatles Antology book and we found out maaaaaaaaany Jane pics there, and my sis fell in love with Pattie.

So Jane and Pattie were our favourites new Beatlegirls (and to this day). Then we had the internet, we started to save pics of them (onto disquettes! does anybody remember disquettes!!??). Afterwards we saved them on CDs, until one day one of them broke, or I don’t know what happenned, that we lost all the collecton. We saved pics from Jane, Pattie, Cyn and Mo. Now my sis and I just save pics of Jane and Pattie (and many other rock stars girls that we’ve met, like Bebe Buell, Pam Courson…).

Anyway. It’s been ages since I’ve never listened to The Beatles music. I mean… I love them, I’ll always be. But now I care more for Jane than for Paul, I really love her A LOT (I would like to be her!).

And, imagine that, NOW John is my favourite Beatle. For things like the one he’s doing on that gif. I love his brilliant humour, like really. He was amazing, and he is much missed.

Here’s my loooong little story about how I got into Jane :)


"Jane had a wonderful ability to put people at ease. She had an air of seriousness and self-assurance rare in someone so young, combined with the energy of a teenager. She was outgoing, but her enthusiastic conversation was informed by a fine education and years of experience as an actress, making her far more sophisticated than the average seventeen year old. She was also extremely pretty.”-Barry Miles

Jane Asher is a British actress, businesswomen, cake maker, author, and mother, known widely for her five year relationship with Paul McCartney in the sixties. She was born into a wealthy upperclass family in Willesden, London. She began acting at the age of five and was well-known in Britain due to her film appearances and role on Jukebox Jury by the time she met McCartney in April of 1963. After her breakup with McCartney in 1968, Jane continued her career and acted in numerous films. She met future husband, artist Gerald Scarfe, in 1971, and they would eventually have three children together. Jane opened her bakery, Jane Asher Cakes, in 1990, and it is now a best selling brand in the UK. She is also an active member in several research and relief charities for disabilities and diseases including Autism, Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s, and arthritis. She has been happily married to Gerald Scarfe for over thirty years, and the two live together in London.

We don’t read and write poetry because it’s cute. We read and write poetry because we are members of the human race. And the human race is filled with passion. And medicine, law, business, engineering, these are noble pursuits and necessary to sustain life. But poetry, beauty, romance, love, these are what we stay alive for. To quote from Whitman, “O me! O life!… of the questions of these recurring; of the endless trains of the faithless… of cities filled with the foolish; what good amid these, O me, O life?” Answer. That you are here - that life exists, and identity; that the powerful play goes on and you may contribute a verse. That the powerful play goes on and you may contribute a verse. What will your verse be?

Dead Poets Society, 1989

January 28, 1966 - Maggie McGivern beside Paul McCartney getting a light from Barry Miles at the opening party for the Indica book shop at 6 Masons Yard in London. Peter Asher, Barry Miles and John Dunbar were partners in Indica, and Paul designed the wrapping paper for the new shop. Not sure if Jane Asher was there?

According to this article, quoting Marianne Faithfull, Jane was there:

'It was a wonderful time,' declares Marianne Faithfull today from Paris, in her rich rock'n'roll contralto. 'The opening night of Indica was complete chaos. Everyone was trying to get the place ready - John, Barry Miles [who ran the bookshop side of Indica], Paul McCartney, Jane Asher, our friend David Courts, so many people … but nobody had thought to clean the lavatory, which was, of course, filthy. I remember I was wearing a beautiful dress and very pale tights, and there I was, on my hands and knees, scrubbing the loo. Because of John, I was very much a part of it all, and I'm so proud that I was.'

By the way, Paul and Maggie McGivern (a model who was the nanny of Marianne Faithfull’s and John Dunbar’s little son Nicholas) had a secret affair with Paul McCartney for three years (1966/68), when he was with Jane.
