Did the Beatles end the '60s or did the '60s end the Beatles? Or what if the '60s had ended in time but the Beatles hadn't? What kind of records would they have put out during the seventies?

Naturally, continuing as a band would have required different circumstances. But if the dilemmas with Lennon lyrics, Harrison as an equal composer, G. Martin's dislike towards experimental music, Yoko and Apple-Klein had been fruitfully solved that could have been possible.

Maybe Lennon's Plastic Ono Band and Harrison's All Things Must Pass give some hints about the hypothetically possible new directions for the Fabs. But it's very uneasy to extrapolate the issue any further, or is it? If I fantasize a little, stuff like Roxy-Bowie, Krautrock ascetism or even post-punk before punk might have been within their reach.

Really heavy thread, man…

 

Let me think of it.

I'd like to say "thank you" on behalf of the group and ourselves and I hope we passed the audition. John Lennon

It just makes me think about this episode of the Simpsons,

OLD HIPPIE: "In a way, the sixties ended the day we sold that van, December 31, 1969".

If they had wanted to, they could have continued and would have helped to define the seventies as they did the sixties. But they seemed to do that anyway indivually so I don't know.

Tough question.

Ad hoc, ad loc, and quid pro quo! So little time! So much to know!
