I was thinking the exact same thing.  It's almost too perfect.  It leaves you wondering, would the next one have been even better?  Or could they even top it?

 

I don't know if they could have topped it, but I've always believed that it was best that they went out on top. They put aside their issues (for the most part) to do Abbey Road, they got that last statement in, they went out firmly as the best band in the world at the top of their game and said to the rest of rock and roll "OK kids, we did our part... now it's your turn." They didn't have a long decline (Let It Be was more of a short drive into the valley), they didn't have that moment when they realized they can't and shouldn't do it anymore but carried on anyway, as the Stones have done, and they left you wanting more. They lived up to Neil Young's credo: Better to burn out than fade away.

I read elsewhere, (on this site I think) that when they went in to record the solos John asked Yoko to wait outside saying it wouldn't take long.

I guessed he he didn't want anything to spoil the vibe between them of that last hurrah!

 

This actually makes me feel so found of 'The End' that I don't think I could do without this track.

I know that was mentioned in Emerick's book. I'm sure it's on here too. Everything is.

I can't watch this video on mobile, but I'm pretty sure it tells you which Beatle is playing when, and the guitar is isolated.

Wouldn't you have loved to be a fly on the wall to see how Yoko reacted to that one?

Wetroosa funny you mention that quote. Was just reading one of Johns last interview either Play Boy or Rolling Stone and he disagrees with that quote. Says he'd rather fade out and live into old age then to go out quick. Just interesting you quoted it and someone actually asked him his opinion on it in an interview.

I'm sure he wanted to carry on with his own music until he physically couldn't do it anymore. (In the RKO interview, he discussed wanting to perform live again, so he would have done it, I'm sure.) But as far as the Beatles goes, well, I still believe they ended it perfectly. But I can easily see John rocking on into old age with Yoko or someone else, maybe even with Sean.

But we should stay-on-topic about how awesome the guitar solos are.

Thanks for the visual! Really helps understand it. I love how Paul just randomly switches instruments throughout.
