Musically the Beatles were friggin great.....

Not necessarily the psychedelic stuff....some of that was good, some even excellent. but before they got stoned to write there was Rubber Soul and Revolver, masterpieces..... and without producer George Martin, they would never have been as great as they were.

some of their individual politics were atrocious. especially Lennon's (Lenin?)

Wasn’t that the band McCartney had before Wings? Seriously, that appearance changed my life.

Sadly, Yoko's talents were overlooked by Ed Sullivan and she never quite made it on the show...

My FIL met them. He was a postman. They ran through the PO building (as cover) to catch a taxi on the other side to get away from the mobs (UK). He shared a ‘cup-a-tea’ with ‘the lads’......as he used to say (RIP).

I’m glad they brought some happiness to some here.

To me they were long haired, dope smoking, hippies.

Thanks for reminding me. I used to think that Woodstock was the beginning of the end of Western Civilization but now believe it was that fateful day.

I always wondered why Lennon lived here if America sucked so bad. And why didn’t he voluntarily cap his income at the Obamanable $500,000 a year limit.

Ya know why? ‘Cause he was full of shit, just like the current crop of “entertainers”.

Some Marxist...
