Paul - IMO, the most talented musician of the four. Also an excellent showman.

John - Didn't take anybody's crap. In most cases, you did not want him to write a song about you (Sexy Sadie, She Said She Said, etc...).

Ringo - Even though he was the oldest, he had that "favorite younger brother" quality about him. Except for his brief hiatus he pretty much let things roll right off his back.

George - To me, he was he most intelligent and independent. He did not need to be a Beatle to be happy. He had a great time on his own during his first trip to India. He also talked about his great time hanging out with The Band and Bob Dylan at "The Big Pink" in Woodstock prior to the Let it Be sessions.  

The following people thank Zig for this post:

It's hard to say, I don't know whether John or George were the soul of the band. I always thought of John to be the soul of the band when I was growing up, but then I heard Blue Jay Way, The Inner Light, and Within You Without You and it made me sit down and smell the roses.

a-hard-days-night-paul-6 The fact that he could play a bassline like it was nobody's business. I mean, COME ON! Have you heard Hey Bulldog? MADNESS!


a-hard-days-night-john-2Like Zig said, he didn't take anyone's crap. As a total pushover, I respect that :)


a-hard-days-night-george-7 His underappreciated solo work. Sure, it may have taken him a few tries to get it right, but when he did finally get there, it was magic.


a-hard-days-night-ringo-12His badass moustache.
