I can’t sing for shit. I play a lot of instruments (I like to think I play them well), I write what I like to think are pretty good songs, I have a good understanding of harmony, I have a good ear, I know a million cover songs ... but not being able to sing well has been my Achilles’ heel for as long as I can remember.
Bruce Spizer pursues his love of all things Beatles with an exhaustive — some might say compulsive — level of research and analysis.

I can’t remember life without Paul McCartney. I’m dating myself, but one of my very earliest childhood memories was seeing McCartney and The Beatles performing “All My Loving” on the "Ed Sullivan Show" back in September of 1964.
When I talk music, I always bring up Kiss because, pound for pound, they are probably my favorite band of all time. It’s a toss-up between them and Megadeth.
