Do you want to know a secret?


Well, I finally finished all 983 pages of “The Beatles” by Bob Spitz. Here’s the abridged version:

1 – John Lennon was a right bastard.
2 – Yoko Ono broke up the Beatles.
3 – Paul McCartney (not dead!) is raw ambition personified.
4 – George Harrison started writing great songs just as the band was splitting.
5 – Ringo Starr spent much of his childhood in a hospital.
6 – Everything fell apart after Brian Epstein died.
7 – The Beatles stopped touring because they could not hear themselves on stage.

I prefer to get MY Beatles-related information from top of the line sources:

Well I consider this blog to be a top of the line source. At least I know Eric is honest, unlike our pals at the NY Times, LA Times, and so on.

Des,

Well, that's just a trivia question for a future game. Assuming, of course, they can get the audio feed to work.

Love & kisses,

Thanks- now I don't have to buy the book.

Ringo remains my favorite Beatle, and the one who has conducted himself the best in his post-Beatledom.
