    Yeah, but still fully composed by George and a statement about how the band was pulling apart.

    I agree with Spliff, it's their songwriting, not their playing that made them famous.

    Quincy on a rampage these days. He just outed Marlon Brando and Richard Pryor as having a sexual relationship. Which ended up being confirmed by Pryor's widow.
    Was Q watching through the crack of the bedroom closet?

    The Beatles claim to fame was their song writing not instrumentals.

    Haha, I have no idea. But I couldn't believe it, so I looked it up and sure enough Pryor's widow said something along the lines of; yes it's true, it was the 80's and there was cocaine and everyone was having sex with everyone.

    Nothing against George Harrison or Ringo Starr, but you could have put any two guys with Lennon and McCartney and The Beatles would have been just as big. Their original drummer was Pete Best, and he left because he thought they would never get anywhere. That might have been the biggest mistake ever made by a human being {LOL}.

    I think Paul was a pretty good bass player. I've heard people say Nikki Sixx (another great songwriter) was a crappy bassist too, but I thought he was alright. But it's not like either of them were John Entwistle or Duff McKagan. That's a whole different level.

    The Beatles were great, so many great songs.

    I listen to everything, from African tribal music, Indian chants, primitive blues, jazz, rap etc etc. And I own everything The Beatles ever did, even some stuff they recorded prior to being The Beatles.

    Why anyone would play critic with this band?

    Yeah he also said that Marlon Brando, Richard Pryor and one other famous actor were gay...

    I'm thinking these are the rantings of a bitter, dementia addled old man... just my opinion though.

    Pretty sure the Brando & Pryor stuff has been confirmed by others.
