I like the Shaved Fish record a lot, but there was some pretty crummy Plastic Ono Band stuff in the late 70s/early 80s

-most musically inclined beatle = george harrison

-Best lyrical beatle is hands down Lennon, anyone ever read up on "Woman is the Nigger of the World" ?

-best beatle album is the album without a #1 hit = The White Album

-Hard to name a "Best" Dylan song, but, my opion its between "Visions of Johanna, Maggies Farm, Queen Jane Approx."

-Can't beat the intro to 50 Ways to Leave Your Lover by Paul Simon. Everything he does is straight.

All four get me thinking, get me happy, get me want to make something of doing nothing at the moment.

You're going to sleep on Paul McCartney after he did a duet with your pop idol Michael Jackson in 1983?!?!?!?!?!

How soon we forget...and how far the mighty have fallen.

I have always found John Lennon to be undubitably corny, but he doesn't offend me or anything. None of these guys espouse socio-political views that I consider myself in line with...I'm sure many would disagree.

For what it's worth.

you guys sleep on paul way too much.

more respect is due.
go get the beatles anthology dvd set. then watch and learn.

most beatles songs were written by paul as were most of the melodies for songs written by the others.
but because he was seen as being good looking he suffered the wrath of having been called "the cute one".
since lennon wore glasses, he was seen as the smart one.

and most consider john the one who brought 'spirituality' to the beatles, just because he was often seen hanging with Majarishi Yogi (sp). no, paul met with him first then brought john along.

they credit john lennon with the psychodelic era of the beatles. that was george harrison who started taking lsd and experimenting with strange guitar sounds and asked everyone to try it also.

credit where its due though, john lennon is credited with inventing 'feedback'. without that where would jimi hendrix be?
also, john lennon introduced the band to dylan's music... and to dylan.

and as for paul "not doing anything" after the beatles. holy hell man.

his solo work speaks for itself in my opinion.
and WINGS was the biggest band in the world for a while.
all of this material solo and with wings was very different from any beatles work, so it may not be your cup of tea... but show respect. it was great shit.

Beatles were..  Reply with quote  

Beatles ARE just ok. Beatles are incredible for what they WERE. Beatles are incredible for what they still ARE. But, the beatles, for me anyways, are just OK.

In my opinion the beatles were together a good band, seperately they didn't do it. Lennon made the biggest waves. Ringo sucks, and always has been the weak link. Harrison and McArtney each made their splashes but Lennon had more volume, if not just in the fact that his solo career was so much more in such a shorter time. I'm kinda glad we didn't get to see what the 80's would have done to Lennon, as if to say fate was speaking up at the timing of his death. Individaully beyond the Beatles doesn't do much for me.

Here's my gripe with the Beatles. The fact is that for what the Beatles were most revolutionary known is just the precedent that makes me mad. They were the first to overproduce. They stopped touring all together. They got a unlimited pass to the BBC. This meant, Jimi Hendrix was that much more limited to his time. If he was recording and Lenon and McArtney had a "break through" the Beatles would tell Hendrix to just come back later. Same with the Who and the many other talents that dropped bandish at the BBC studios around the 60's.
