This has nothing to do with the New Year’s celebration other than the place where I celebrated New Year’s Eve, and where a musical phenomenon started. But this cannot wait any further. This is the closest I have met and experienced the Fab Four from Liverpool. Not in England though, but in Hamburg. The Beatles showed their chops here for quite a while during their humble beginnings, sleeping in small and dingy rooms near the Reeperbahn area. The Reeperbahn, probably the most sinful stretch of mile in the world, deserves another story altogether.
