Lets pretend we just cant see her face said:

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

I agree. I always felt George was probably the nicest due to his humble attitude and never being on an ego trip but he would not tolerate fans intruding on his privacy and was always very bold when it came to answering questions. I think he got tired of always answering Beatle questions and was more concerned about his relationship with God and felt the all of us need to draw from this.

He once said 'Everything Else Can Wait But The Search For God Cannot Wait' What always interested me is the fact that he got interested in India Religion and Hare Krishna around 1968 and kept his faith until he passed away.

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.

Wow! What'd he do? 

Frank Skinner once interviewed Ringo. Just before they went live, Ringo said "no questions about the Beatles". They did half an hour on Thomas The Tank Engine.

But that was because he was fed up of talking about them all the time when to him, it had all happened a long time ago. It´s sad for us because we want to talk about them constantly, especially with somebody who was actually there and a part of it all but I think we forget sometimes that he has done things since that he might want to talk about. Also, say in the seventies, it was quite raw still I think and he may have wanted to just forget about The Beatles and concentrate on other things.a-hard-days-night-ringo-14

I can understand of being fed up, but what did he really accomplished that much after The Beatles that is worth of one hour (or whatever time length) of interview? 

I'm going to be honest - not a lot. But still, how would we feel if we want to sort of, forget about something and all everybody else wants to do is remind you of that very thing? I'm not saying that he shouldn't of spoken about it, there are still things that I would love to ask him now but I can understand why it might have got a bit too much for him at times.

Moving along in our God given ways, safety is sat by the fire/Sanctuary from these feverish smiles, left with a mark on the door.

First of all, I don't think this topic should be posted in George's forum (or any of the Beatles' individual forums, really) because that kind of already implies that the first poster was thinking we would all agree (or the majority of us would agree) that George was the nicest, doesn't it? Perhaps we can move this topic to the "Yesterday...and Today" forum instead, so as the answers aren't subconsciously biased?

As for the actual topic of who was the nicest Beatle, can any of us truly answer that? The story of Paul riding on his bicycle and waving /saying hello to Michael was really sweet; but I've read in many different places that John was quite the one for being polite to fans because he realized that without them, he would be nothing in the music industry. And it has also been mentioned by Ringo that although John may have been the "craziest", he could also have the biggest heart out of any of them. That being said, my vote still wouldn't go to John due to all of the rude comments and such he seemed to have a knack at making (but don't we love him for it!). I've seen Paul live, and the thing I remember most about his concert was that he was very personable--even tho he was performing in front of 50,000 fans! However, I don't think you necessarily have to be "nice" to pull that off: that can all be accredited to plain ol' good-fashioned showmanship. So while I have no doubt that Paul is a genuinely sweet man, I don't feel I would be able to judge his level of niceness very fairly since I haven't exactly sat down and chatted with him over a nice cup of tea. As far as George goes, I just can't see how someone who takes up a religion very much based around harmony can't not be nice. I mean, don't you kind of have to be nice and polite to people to find harmony in any situation? I know he was oftentimes very moody, but who isn't in a bad mood on some days? And having an occasional mood swing doesn't necessarily mean you're not an innately nice human being. As for dear old Ringo, I think he may have been rude to interviewers back in the day, but I've personally never seen a current interview in which he appears to be rude or bitter when being asked a Beatles question--or any other question. He seems very charming during his interviews nowadays. Very witty and warm-hearted. 

So after that lovely analysis, I've got squat. So I'll sum it up with something our dear Johnny said: "You have to be a bastard to make it, and that's a fact. And The Beatles are the biggest bastards on earth." So much for niceness, eh?

"I'm not going to change the way I look or the way I feel to conform to anything. I've always been a freak. So I've been a freak all my life and I have to live with that, you know? I'm just one of those people."
