The Aerovons story is an unusual one. They were one of thousands of bands that were very influenced by the Beatles, true, but they took this obsession much further than any other band did. They wrote songs and sounded like the Beatles, offered a chance to record in L.A., they chose instead to make their own way to England and managed to swing a deal with the Beatles label Parlophone! They even recorded at Abbey Road studios and got a chance to hang out with the Beatles and the Hollies, among others. Though their musical dream died before anyone got to hear their music(beyond a pair of singles), they really achieved their objective-recording an albums worth of material and meeting the Beatles - which isn't bad for a band from St. Louis, Missouri.
