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?a-hard-days-night-ringo-14

Excerpt from the 'Anthology' section of a Guardian article on six of Will Dean's favourite Beatles TV shows to watch:

Completists can top up the DVD set with the Anthology book, three Anthology CDs, Anthology pencil case, rat poison etc.

That article drips with the funniest sarcasm.

Storyville film first shown last year which suggested that as well as inventing sexual intercourse and changing the course of music history, the Beatles also ended communism. Well done fellas.

Watching that Shea Stadium performance of I'm Down, even Paul is laughing at John :D I'm always struck by the live performances in Anthology, it's a great collection of them, and how they managed that level of professionalism in those circumstances is fantastic.
