Gina (g1n3) | 12 comments Do you all have a favorite Beatle? I'm not sure why, but when I was first exposed to the Beatles at a very young age, I always loved Ringo. He's always been my favorite since then. This summer, I went to California and saw his house, so that was pretty cool! What about you? Do you have a favorite?


message 2: by [deleted user] (new)

Ringo because he's not as famous.

Kristine I'm glad someone else feels the way I do about John. He was so talented and had a beautiful voice.

Zia | 65 comments I know, right!? Lol...

Gina (g1n3) | 12 comments John and Paul were an INCREDIBLY talented at writing music and lyrics. Absolutely talented.


message 10: by [deleted user] (new)

I'm not a big fan of Paul. I mean, how many good songs has he written outside the Beatles? Lyrics wise. Really, silly love songs kind of sucks.

But John is awesome.


message 11: by Kristine (new)

Kristine For those who love John, I highly recommend two books I recently read: John Lennon - The Life by Norman & Memories of John Lennon by Ono.


message 12: by Kristine (new)

Kristine I also highly recommend for all Beatles fans travelling to Liverpool to see where they grew up and got their start. I went a year ago and had a wonderful time. It is such a neat place to see. A highlight for me was going into John's boyhood home.

Kristine Thanks Zia. I shall. I've also read The Beatles by Bob Spitz. Have you read that one? If so, how does it compare to Shout?

Zia | 65 comments No, I haven't read that one. I added Shout! to the book shelf.

message 31: by [deleted user] (new)

RINGO!!!!!!!! Does there have 2 b a reason why? Cos idk y. He is just awesome! And he put up with a lot from the other three.


message 32: by [deleted user] (new)

George and Paul are in close second, unless I'm in a mood, cos then John is second. John makes me laugh the most.

CAROLINE ♥ Stop searching forever, wrote: "I vote for John"

John really bossed them around a lot, but Paul was really mean to Stuart Sutcliff when the band was first getting started. Paul wanted 2 play bass, and Stu was already there. John didn't originally want George in the band, because he was so much younger.

George! He's my favorite - some of my favorite Beatles songs are by him: While My Guitar Gently Weeps and Here Comes the Sun. George also did the Concert for Bangladash. (I'm saying that the other 3 aren't extremely awesome though!!! Paul and John are great songwriters and Ringo's great @ the drums.)


message 35: by [deleted user] (new)

John and Paul only let George write 2 songs per album... RUDE.


message 36: by [deleted user] (new)

I know. A lot of his songs on the later albums were written a while earlier, but John and Paul wouldn't let him put them on any albums because they felt the songs weren't Beatle standard. The songs them became extremely popular.


message 37: by [deleted user] (new)

Typo alert!!! I meant THEN became popular.


message 38: by [deleted user] (new)

I read that sometime near the breakup Paul said to John that George was starting to write songs better than their own...

I wish that they appreciated him earlier... maybe because he was the youngest they treated him like that at the beginning and they did become way better friends after that but maybe they still were picky about his songs.... idk im no specialist!
