and I got married in a replica of the shea stadium suits (but in black, not tan)

Of course if you also wore the wig for the occasion, alarm bells may have started ringing for your Mrs... !

I remember when you could get a plastic Beatles wig for 2/6 at Woollies.

That'll be the one i had back in 63/64. I even had the EP All My Loving for my birthday and still have it. 

I dont have the wig or guitar tho.

Shame… they’d be worth at least 15/6 by now.

 

My brother still has all the original EPs… in mono, of course. Because he was older and bought the Beatles stuff, I ended up having to get Frank Ifield and Freddie and the Dreamers.

I inherited all my Mothers older singles including Frank Ifield and Freddie too. 👍

Cool strides too.. 👍

Combining my Beatles outfit with my Country & Western outfits. Just a trend setter back in the day.

Wonder what went wrong 😁

My mum mainly had classical records, the only single i recall was "concrete and clay" by unit 4 plus 2...   and there was some 'orrible lp by the Seekers...

Think every family had a Seekers album or single in the house 😀

My mother generally had popular songs from the radio. She did have an old Platters album which i just loved the harmonies. She was also a bit of an Elvis fan but most women probably liked Elvis back in 50's

Respect indeed !

Wouldn't fancy even attempting that !

One of Mrs Ubits brothers is left handed and he learned right handed guitar. He is incredible and could have had a professional career in music if he hadn't decided he would rather have a family.

One thing that twisted my melon was the left-handed John Sykes lookalikey in a Lizzy trib, who played left handed, but with the strings upside down, too - his solos sounded right but looked allll wrong. When I chatted to him he said he'd learned by borrowing his brother's guitar and, because nobody had told him otherwise, just flipped it over.

Jimmy Haslip bassist from Yellowjackets i think was the same.

Amazing soloist too but not sure how he manages to do his slap style.

It's quite normal for classically trained players to play right-handed - even if they are left-handed in everyday life.

Katriona Gilmore (Gilmore and Roberts) plays violin right-handed and mandolin left-handed, and is exceptionally talented with both instruments.

Noooo....that's strung the right way up - it's not a right handed Strat just turned over...the pics of Messrs Dale and King shows the 'sounds right, looks wrong' stringing...
