I can see that perhaps there are two 'mini-generations' of Beatles fans that just missed out on experiencing the band Diamond - Kevin McDermott Orchestra - Mother Natures Kitchen 'real' time Forerunner - Natural Born Grooves - Forerunner that learnt their history from 'The Beatles Story' and those that learnt it from 'The Beatles Forever'.
