      Lol, that’s funny.
      No, but that’s only because I never talk about The Beatles. If I did, I sure like your idea.

    No way I never talk about the Beatles. But I sometimes  put on some kind of British accent when when I talk about Ozzy Osbourne and Black Sabbath. I have been watching a TV show called the Osbourne's  so I am getting pretty good at imitating Ozzy and his wife. Cheers!

    Ozzy is a Brummie. I'm not a fan of him but it's a well-known fact he's from Birmingham.

    There are still a fair few of them in my neighbourhood. Most of them are in their 60s or 70s now.

    I have no idea what that means. Everybody sounded the same to me in the UK.

    Everybody does NOT sound the same in the UK. Listen again.

    I agree, there are almost 40 different dialects in the UK.

    No.  No one would recognize it to be a Liverpool accent I'm sure.

    Of course they would. I live only about 40 miles from there myself.

    My comment was to say that there is no way I would ever sound like I hailed from Liverpool.........my southern USA accent would come through.

    LOL!

    No I don't. I may be English and have slight Northern English traces in my voice, but I live some 250 miles South from Liverpool and could not mimic that accent at all properly!
