Based on what we know of each of the Beatle's traits,which of the fab's would you be closest with?

You've got a lucky face.

Welcome to the forum, I LOVE your user name!  Are you also a big Simpsons fan?

 

Probably not a big surprise but it's most definitely Paul...  and NOT just because I think he is the most beautiful creature that ever existed.  I also think we would have lots of things in common. 

He's a total dork.. 

It's one of my (many) favourite things about him.  heart

 

John is a very close second.a-hard-days-night-john-1

"Please don't bring your banjo back, I know where it's been..  I wasn't hardly gone a day, when it became the scene..  Banjos!  Banjos!  All the time, I can't forget that tune..  and if I ever see another banjo, I'm going out and buy a big balloon!"

Well... John? John was like the girl with the curl on her forehead; when he was good he was very good but when he was bad he was horrid. The trouble is you would never have known which John you were going to get. I'm sure the good times would have been amazing, I'm just not sure I would have hung around for the inevitable sardonic tongue lashings.

It's clear from Mark Lewisohns new book that Paul, while attracting the most attention, was also the Beatle who was least popular among those who knew them. I just think there's a self serving part of him that I wouldn't have found that attractive as a friend.

Ringo? Dunno, nice guy with a little bit of a mean streak to him? I'm sure if you became friends with him you would be FRIENDS. I'd also imagine there'd be very few who'd get to that hallowed position.

That leaves George. Sardonic wit with a penchant for keeping it real. Watch the interviews. There are so many examples of George just sitting there saying nothing and then interjecting with the most well timed, funniest quips of the session. He pulled the Beatles back from their worst excesses. Kept there eyes on the things that mattered. Despite a lack of a more natural talent than the boys he worked and worked at his abilities. He was spiritual and worked hard at seeing a broader world beyond his upbringing. Without a doubt it'd be George I'd have been friends with. I just wouldn't have let any daughter of mine anywhere near him! :)

Ringo! I feel like he'd be fun to hang out with. He's funny and a good person and did I mention Ringo? And if we're friends, of course we'd play music together, I'd love to have Ringo drumming while I played guitar, that would be the most amazing thing ever.

If I spoke prose you'd all find out, I don't know what I talk about.

I'd hope George. His sense of humour is amazing but wasnt as terrifying as John could be so at times, liked his own space and the quiet but was great to hang around with. I'd have loved to have hung out with George in Friar Park and go exploring with him around the grounds.ahdn_george_01

I couldn't have said it better myself.  I love George's wit, the way he just pops out of nowhere with it.  And his spirituality, it aligns closely with mine.  But I do think he had a good deal of talent with the guitar - to wit, John and Paul taking him in at what, 15 when they were 17?  Or was it 14 and 16?  Either way, big age difference for teenagers. 

I disagree with you a bit about Ringo though.  He might be a bit tough to get through to, but I'm not sure about a mean streak - witness all the stuff he's done for kids.  At this point, he and Paul are fighting off "future good friends" (i.e, people who want something) as fast as they can knock on the door a-hard-days-night-george-10 

Hell, I'd ring Paul's doorbell if I knew where it was, what could happen? (ok, the police could haul me away, but as i'd be bearing no weapons, and Paul surely wouldn't call the cops on one meek fan who knocks on the door) - the doorman would probably just turn me away.  So, off to Ringo's door!

As much as I think Ringo would be the most amiable, I think it would be George for me. Probably cuz I look most like him (when I have a mustache). ahdn_george_06

He's certainly be the guy I'd want to know the most. All the Fabs had their issues and likely alienated a whole heck of a lot of people, but George's outlook on life has not only influenced my own but given me a lot to think about. Not to mention that he's hilarious, like all of them.
