How very sad. I think if everyone has their "Beatle" -- they're either a John, Paul, George, or Ringo - I'm probably a George. I've got a fairly reasonable -- though not complete -- Beatles collection.
I remember the day John Lennon died; I was only nine or so years old, but I knew instinctively that it was a Big Deal. My parents weren't big Beatles fans -- my mom said that it was her college roommate that had all of the Beatles albums. (And actually, considering there are still some CDs that my roommate had that I don't, I can perhaps understand that.) And one of the first CDs I bought when I got a CD player was Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band and I've got most of the other Beatles albums.
And I remember being in art class in elementary school, and the cover for that album was out there, and it was probably the first time I heard the classic "Paul Is Dead" urban legend. And a bunch of other stuff as well.
And of course, George was partially responsible in helping to fund all of the Monty Python movies and The Rutles and stuff like that.
