I've got a lovely little story to tell you about how I grew to love The Beatles. My dad often tells me whilst I was in the womb he played Yellow Submarine, I called my dad John Lennon because he had long hair and circle glasses.
I always thought he was the actual John Lennon but didn't want to blow his cover, so I drew pictures and made paintings throughout my childhood, and knew every word from the movie Yellow Submarine because I thought that was a movie about him and his friends.
One Halloween I thought I could dress up as a Blue Meanie as they scared me even though I knew they weren't real. This Halloween costume just became painting myself blue for hours and putting black tights on my head. When I hit 8 years old I aspired to be a drummer because I wanted to be Ringo Starr, so I learnt to drum and was bought my own drum kit for Christmas.
One of my favourite childhood toys was my Yellow Submarine snow globe, it took me back to a special place spinning around to All You Need Is Love shaking it about to make it snow.
We started collecting original pressings of some of their best albums and inspired me to always be colourful. My vinyl collection has since expanded into a lifelong obsession. I've been in the awe of what the Beatles left behind in Liverpool and I don't think I could live anywhere else in the world. So you could say The Beatles were always there at every stage of my life, and still inspire me to keep going throughout my creativity. Should I mention that @HappySocks now have a Beatles range that everyone should buy? #HappySocksXTheBeatles
