Experience

Anthony Rasmussen is a former writer for ThoughtCo who wrote about The Beatles and other artists on the Apple Record Label. Rasmussen owns a comprehensive collection of vinyl records, compact discs, books, and magazines about The Beatles and is the founder of Beatles Blogger, a website dedicated to Beatle collectors the world over.

His first exposure to Beatles music was via the radio, watching the band on TV and through raiding his older sister's record collection. The first LP Rasmussen owned was "Sgt Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band," and from there he's been steadily acquiring every release related to The Beatles to add to his collection.

He also has a secondary but closely related interest is the Beatles' record label, Apple. From rockers Badfinger and soul keyboardist Billy Preston to Indian sitar giant Ravi Shankar and classical composer John Tavener, Apple is another example of the Beatles breaking new ground.

Education

Rasmussen has a Bachelor of Arts degree with Majors in English and History.
