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

Anthony's first exposure to Beatles music was as a child listening to the radio. He watched the band on TV and listened to them after raiding his older sister's record collection. The first LP Rasmussen owned was Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band. Since then, he has been steadily acquiring every release related to The Beatles for his collection.

As an offshoot of Anthony's passion for all things Bettles, he also closely follows the Apple Records label. From Welsh rockers Badfinger and soul keyboardist Billy Preston to Indian sitar giant Ravi Shankar and classical composer John Tavener, the Apple label is another example of the Beatles breaking new ground.


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