I was wondering who was the nicest Beatle. From all that I have read, it seems that George has always been considered the nicest with the fans and during his interviews which he did not do very often. 

Has anyone meet any of the fab four and if so, what was your experience like?

I've always thought it was Ringo. a-hard-days-night-ringo-10

Ringo. 

(He's the nicest-- I haven't met him!)

But I have been to a Paul concert, which kind of makes me have a bias... and I don't dream about Ringo, unless I'm dreaming about all four. 

If I seem to act unkind, it's only me, it's not my mind that is confusing things.

Actually Ringo has the reputation of being the hardest of all four to deal with. Many interviewers will list him in the list of worst guests.

Frankly, in terms of the idolized visions we have, none of them was that nice - not all the time at least.

Wow! What'd he do? 

Anyway, I still think I'd love to interview/talk to/spend a day with any of them, regardless of how nice/not really they were in real life.

Apparently Ringo can be a real pain in the butt - I believe Larry King, Letterman and a few others like them have listed Ringo as their most difficult guest. If I remember he gives one word answers, can be rude, tempermental, stuff like that.

A friend of mine named Michael says he ran into McCartney in the Hamptons (New York). He said McCartney was friendly, nice, admitted he eats a hot dog every now and then (he's supposed to be a vegetarian). The thing that shows the true colors is that later that day McCartney came riding by on bicycle, saw my friend, waved to him and shouted "Hi Michael".

Assuming the story is true, that's a pretty good in-sight.

George was known as surly - and John, well I don't think he's going to be nominated for Mr. Nice.

Well, Inner Light seems to be a George fangirl/boy, so s/he's probably cherry-picking here....

a-hard-days-night-ringo-14 Oh, wow! OK, so I can understand jumping off the veggie bandwagon every now and again, but for a hot dog?! Out of all the steaks out there and the ways you can make fish or chicken, he chooses hot dogs?! UGH!

Paul, what do you have to say for yourself?

Yeah, I thought so! :)

Robert, what time period are they talking about, though? I heard when Ringo was drinking he could be completely unpredictable, but maybe as he's cleaned up, he's gotten better?

And I agree with you. Nice is such a subjective term, and none of the 4 were any angels. Of course, as they are human, *just like us!!1!* they are entitled to their off days and being tired of the whole meet and greet sort of thing. It's inexcusable when they repeatedly do it, but once in awhile just means they're human.

Hey! Vegetarianism is not a bandwagon! 

But still... a hot dog?

No, it isn't, but some people look at it as a way of life and others look at it as something more fluid and will eat meat from time to time, and not take it that seriously. No offense meant. I'd have put Paul in the first camp, for sure.

I have friends who primarily are vegetarian until they go home for the holidays to their families or they are mainly vegetarian save for the odd piece of meat once or twice a month. I, myself, am only saying "I'm not eating meat now" because I've just started and am still working things out.

The complaints about Ringo I've heard going on for at least 15 years or more. Can't remember the most recent, but not all that long ago.

In terms of them being human, well that's for sure. I guess my point is that they are no more nice than any normal person, and perhaps at times much less so.

I think sometimes we as fans fall into the stereotypes of them created by the media - and those are just fictional cartoons of real people. I think the most surprising one is that George could be a right jerk - and he was very money conscious. Very.

And the Paul and the hot dog incident happened about 7 or 8 years ago.

Personally, I like hot dogs. All beef kosher.

Still, Paul is a fantastic showman. He can talk to an audience of thousands as intimately (well, maybe not AS intimately) as an audience of fifty. I love his concerts. I've been to one, and I hope I can go to another one. 

I think it's hilarious the way nobody's nominated John. a-hard-days-night-john-1

I've read a lot of places that George was actually pretty moody. You can see it in Let It Be. This is a tough question, I think they all had to be pretty easy to get along with for them to be together for so long and how popular they were. Now, a band that big would break up a lot sooner I feel. I think Paul was pretty accommodating, originally a guitar and trumpet player in school it takes a lot of talent and patients to switch to whatever was needed remember he was even playing drums for The Silver Beatles. I think they each had their own areas of being nice..... it's a hard one.a-hard-days-night-ringo-4
