I understand exactly what you mean Norrin Radd.
I am only 30 (only! LOL!) but their music, their story, those four guys mean the world to me.
While I have always known of them and been a fan to some degree, I really started to fully appreciate their music about 4 or 5 years ago.
There music simply makes me feel good. A spark of joy that started to break me out of years of debilitating depression. Which medication and therapy never could. In fact I would not be overstating things to say that otherwise I never wanted to see my 30th birthday. I might not be here now...
I know that may sound sappy or pathetic. The Beatles are not my religion. They simply sparked a passion for all life that had never come from anywhere else.
