George did, but he also was ponderously bitter and cynical in many spots, so much so that it frustrated me. The bit I always come back to are their final words on the whole experience:
Paul: "I'm really proud that nearly all of our songs dealt with love, peace, understanding..."
Ringo: (talking about the memories) "...the closeness...a hotel room here, a bathroom there...just four guys who really loved each other."
George: "The fans gave their screams and The Beatles gave their nervous systems."
He couldn't have come up with something a bit more positive than that!?
I see your point, but personally wouldn't have wanted it any other way. Apple has a tendency (most times anyway) to sugar coat the history of The Beatles. This brutal honesty is refreshing.
Totally agree...one of my minor niggling complaints about Anthology is that it glossed over too much of the negative. But as a final thought, George couldn't have come up with something a LITTLE more positive than that?
