It’s Hard To Be A Teenage Beatles Fan

TAMPA, Fla. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Being a teenager is hard enough but it’s even more difficult when you’re a Beatles fan.

According to Zane Lalani, author of Teenagers Guide To The Beatles (AverStream Press), John, Paul, George and Ringo have a lot of fans who aren’t old enough to drive – but their allegiance has a price on the playground.

As he puts it, “I’ve talked with kids who like the Beatles who are being teased by kids who prefer hard rock or hip- hop.”

Sadly, the underage Beatlemaniacs are forced to find out information about the group on the internet which Lalani says has a lot of false information emphasizing the band’s drug use.

Lalani is hoping to change things with his book, which he says was written for kids between age 10 and 13 and focuses “on what the band went through.”

But while Lalani hopes his books lets the teenage Beatle fans know they’re not alone, he admits there is still conflict among them.

In his words, “Some like John Lennon better than Paul McCartney and the fans that like George Harrison or Ringo Starr are always the most defensive.”
