Both surviving Beatles are in their 70s now. In March of 2013 Please Please Me will turn 50.
They should make a Ringo documentary, he's pretty understood in my opinion as most people just see him as "the drummer".
[QUOTE=TheBrokenHobo;36368903]Best night ever.[/QUOTE] Where was that at? I just saw Ringo in concert on the 3rd of July. I drove all the way from Oklahoma to Alabama just to see him. It was the closest he was coming to me. Totally worth it.
The unused guitar solo really fits Here Comes the Sun [video=youtube;PRqQLroNAIE]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PRqQLroNAIE[/video]
So one of my dearest family friends passed away, and he was a HUGE Beatles fan. I mean, huge. He listened to the growing up and till the day he died, he was real hardcore. "Yoko broke the band up!" etc. Anyways, at his funeral they played In My Life before the pastor read the Gospel and it was so beautiful. I think pretty much everyone in the room was in tears. That song is just so fucking timeless .
[QUOTE=IQ-Guldfisk;36380231]That looks amazing, wish he will play in Europe before he retires. I also found this image, just wondering if there is anyone who actually thinks this, obviously not in this thread but in general [img]https://fbcdn-sphotos-a.akamaihd.net/hphotos-ak-ash4/418122_3511798637358_591477033_n.jpg[/img][/QUOTE] Nobody thinks this. I worry if anybody thinks this article is legit. [editline]17th July 2012[/editline] I've seen the actual article. You can really see it there but it goes on to say how good One Direction are for selling out to Nintendo. It's a joke piece. [editline]17th July 2012[/editline] Not sure what Beatles song I want at my funeral. Something great and sad. Like In my Life. Golden Slumbers. [editline]17th July 2012[/editline] Anybody watched Yellow Submarine on any drugs or anything?
Hope this hasn't been posted before. Hey Bulldog is my absolute favorite Beatles song, mostly because of the awesome bassline throughout the entire song. Imagine my overwhelming happiness when I came across this: [video=youtube;EWGLRaH57YY]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EWGLRaH57YY[/video] Paul is seriously one of the best bass players I know.
Hey Bulldog is bad ass. I really dig Lennons voice on it.
Have yet to give Mack's Tug of War album a listen. Surprising really, since most folk say it's his best.
The Mono version of Rubber Soul in this collection is SUPERB. Finally, I've found the best sounding version of it.. It's not harsh and spread out like the crappy new remasters. [img]http://image.betamonline.com/sdimages/disk5/824798.jpg[/img]

Did anyone watch the opening ceremoni to the Olympic games? Really glad it ended with McCartney. Perfect ending.
there must be one Beatle fan who loves Yoko Ono's music.
I'm sure there's a bunch. Personally I just can't get past the AAEEOEOUOUIEOIAOEUAEOIUEIOAUIOAEUEEEEEEEE stuff.
[QUOTE=ejonkou;36968468]Did anyone watch the opening ceremoni to the Olympic games? Really glad it ended with McCartney. Perfect ending.[/QUOTE] At the very beginning he sounded like he was kinda choking up or sick or something. It started kinda messy but the whole performance was great.
[QUOTE=AK'z;36975778]there must be one Beatle fan who loves Yoko Ono's music.[/QUOTE] My dad really likes Yoko Ono. He says it's rather bizarre and something out of the norm. I agree with TheBrokenHobo, I can't get past the screaming and stuff.
[QUOTE=ejonkou;36979669]My dad really likes Yoko Ono. He says it's rather bizarre and something out of the norm. I agree with TheBrokenHobo, I can't get past the screaming and stuff.[/QUOTE] Well.. she has done a couple good/more radio friendly things. But as a whole, she does things I can't comprehend, it's like she's free spirited to the point where she's become some kind of beast. :v:
Pauls performance at the Olympics was kinda naff to be fair. His persistent touring is admirable but doing horrible things to his voice considering Tom Jones, Ben E King and Ringo sound almost the same as they did in the day. Paul performs without vocal warm ups or drinking anything, his band act like it's inspiring when it's killing his vocal cords slowly. In 2005 Paul sounded almost the same as 60's Paul, now he can barley project and the harmonies from the drummer sound better than he does. The sad part is it's going to kill him if he doesn't learn to take more than three days off touring at a time, how long has the On The Run tour even been going on? A year, and there was only a month between his last tour. I saw Paul in March and he was full of energy and wit and everything but his voice was frequently drowned out by the instruments. I hope to god he doesn't run himself into the dirt, I know Paul was always the fame hungry Beatle but people are seeing his appearances at EVERY massive world concert as less of an honour and more of a predictable obligation. He goes on about how The Beatles wouldn't get back together incase it tarnished the name, this relentlessness touring is killing his. I can't help but feel if John Lennon was alive it'd have been him on that stage doing Imagine as it fits the shows tone a lot more. Oh well. Arctic Monkeys did a very very good cover of Come Together, was very surprised at that.
well Lennon wasn't a fan of performing live. His last ever performance was only because Elton John bet that their record would reach number 1. On the night, Lennon threw up right before the performance. It's kind of confusing that he hated them tbh since he seems like the loudest out of the lot. And seeing as he did some avant garde things with yoko on stage, you'd think a pop song would have been a walk in the park. Maybe the "crowd" atmosphere is what he hated.
[QUOTE=AK'z;36994093]well Lennon wasn't a fan of performing live. His last ever performance was only because Elton John bet that their record would reach number 1. [/QUOTE] It's actually a misconception. Lennon disliked performing live, no doubt, but he did it alot in 69 and the very early 70's. After he went on stage with Elton John he came back to this idea of live performance. The Elton John performance was not his last, his last was mostly unrecorded but he did three songs as part of one of those sort of charity-concerts with loads of artists. He did Imagine, Stand By Me and Slippin' And Slidin' live. Though no footage of Stand By Me exists. [video=youtube;T2hvkPyiAFE]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T2hvkPyiAFE[/video] He also said in some radio interviews how he planned to tour the next year. A couple of days before his death.
yeah I was just thinking that, I've seen a few live things that sound amazing. He was a natural performer.
Sorry to bump a thread that hasn't been posted in for a while, but I've just realised. The Beatles were really fucking unlucky as kids. John's Dad left him and he never saw him again until he got into the Beatles (and even then only for a very short while), his Mum left him alone for years and, not long after they'd properly met, she was killed. Paul's mother died when he was 14. Ringo's basically been ill in some way his entire life, and... Well, I don't actually know about George. But still. That's a hell of a lot of bad luck for three guys.
Liverpool. Everybody is fuckin' 'ard in Liverpool.

No one is going to buy it. Honestly, the MMT movie was such a pile of [I]shit[/I].
[QUOTE=Pedro the Fuzzy;37365858]No one is going to buy it. Honestly, the MMT movie was such a pile of [I]shit[/I].[/QUOTE] I'll buy it
some little voice inside of me knew you would show up goddamnit. I honestly couldn't make it through the whole movie. It was just so...stupid
I'd buy it as it looks fantastic in HD. Almost to a modern standard of filming. Also for the music videos.
you can honestly find all the "videos" on Youtube. W/e though. I'm just saying the movie sucks balls.
