Thank you for the awards!  

I would like to thank Paul, for ruining my life and making this possible.   

I would also like to thank the Beatles Bible, for being the best outlet.

Congrats to the other winners and thanks to all that voted!

Most compelling acceptance speech ever.

Love it.

Wow, an award? Haven't gotten a trophy since high school! This virtual trophy will go very well on my desk.

Sky999, fabulous clip on many levels. McCartney must have been ticked off to just say 'thank you' and leave. Why? And how did George Harrison fit into a "Let It Be" award (but not Ringo).

Joe, congrats on the super stats. Truly a remarkable achievement.

Finally, congrats to the other winners and to all frequent posters who are all winners too.

John, Paul and George wrote the songs on Let It Be so the award would have went to them, Ringo didn't so wouldn't have been included.

Paul and Linda were in LA for Ram sessions and so went and picked it up the award; it was during the fall out of The Beatles split and the court-case where Paul had sued his band mates and friends and won and they weren't getting on good terms so i doubt he was in the frame of mind to thank John, George and Ringo. Plus you have Allen Klein and there would be no way Paul was going to say anything about or to him that was broadcastable. Better to do a runner quickly.

Wonder if that's why Linda went with him to the stage, to keep him in line?

Paul and Linda did everything together, they were they their own johnandyoko - tho thankfully without the nudity, shrieking or forcing crap 'music' down our throats and then having the gazzumption to tell us it was our hang-ups that were the reason for it being labelled as shit.

It was during those same Grammy awards that "Let It Be" (the song) lost out to "Bridge Over Troubled Waters" for song of the year. McCartney might have been disappointed/ticked off. On the other hand, that award probably came out long after the  "musical score" award, so I think the explanations put forth above are more realistic.
