The rhythm change gets me going and the "deeper meaning" but lets not discuss that.
I try not to compare The Beatles, The Stones and The Doors since they were pretty different. Love all three though.

When I was eight years old, my cousins from England came over to visit me in Brooklyn and they had the latest British albums with them-- a group called The Shadows, and another album by a group called the Beatles.

After they played me those albums, I made a prediction which I will never forget. I told them that it was just going to be a matter of time before every American would know the names of The Shadows.

BTW--play She Loves You some time. It still stands up.

The Shadows are currently touring the UK on their absolute, definate last appearance !!

Brian Bennett and Bruce Welch received OBE's in the Queens Burthday Honours lists.The Lead guitarist Hank Marvin declined to accept his award for personal reasons

For you Americans who are too young to know, they were the Backing Group for Cliff Richard (our answer to Elvis)

I'm glad the Rolling Stones was brought up. They would have to be my second favorite band in that 60's era.
Songs like Street Fighting Man, Honky Tonk Women, Paint It Black, Gimme Shelter, and Jumping Jack Flash are awsome songs!!
The Shadows and The Doors I never really liked, maybe because I was too much into the Beatles and the Stones during that time.

Yesterday. I like almost any Beatles track...

Paul McCartney had a big concert in sweden some days ago in Gothenborg, the same city where Lennart Green lives. He is very popular musician.

I thought Paul McCartney was in "Wings". Did he join another group?

Wings? Wow, wasn't that group formed in like the 70's? And also, Linda (Paul's Wife) died, so I don't think Wings exist anymore.

George was too quiet, John was to werid, and Ringo was too goofy. I always thought Paul was the better songwriter, IMO.



My favorite "Beatle" would have to be John Lennon. John Lennon was not afraid to speak his mind and much of his writing and conversations were simply his recollections of his life and his observations.
John Lennon did not simply pass through his life like so many people do. Lennon lived his life and because of his curious nature and wanting to understand everything around him, he sometimes got himself into trouble and into dangerous situations.
With whatever faults Lennon may have had (and we ALL have faults) he was truly a man of peace and like Ray Charles and so many others (famous and not famous) the world is a little better place because of their presence.
God Bless John Lennon and all who were peacefull souls.

Wings was around in the 70's and 80's, and broke up long before Linda died.

Paul's been doing some touring recently. He's got a backup band, but it's they don't share any billing with him...it's just "Paul McCartney". He's also had several solo albums in recent years. "Flaming Pie" rocks.

As far as favorite Beatles go, I like them all for different reasons. They each have unique personalities that I relate to in different ways. That's part of what makes them so great. If I had to choose, I'd say either Paul or Ringo.

Paul was definitely the more talented songwriter. John was more interested in ideas and how to get them across, while Paul was interested in the music and pushing that forward.

Picking a favorite song? Impossible...there's just way too many good ones. Let It Be...Naked has been in my current CD rotation recently. The versions of Get Back and Let it Be on there kick major butt. Beatles songs will stand up against ANY band around today.

Two point. One, although this is the "Not very magicial" thread, I'd like to point out that the Ed Sullivan 2-DVD set of The Beatles performances also has two master magicians performing as well. Fred Kaps does a strange card trick and his 1 1/2 minute salt pour. And Fantasio does a standard (but excellent) manipulation act (no canes or candles.)

Second point, it may be heresy, but has anybody here ever seen "The Rutles - All You Need Is Cash!"?
"There's no time to lose," I heard her say.
"Catch your dreams before they slip away."
"Dying all the time, lose your dreams and you could lose your mind.
