As you may know, today is the 53rd anniversary of the eventful "garden fete" at St. Peter's Church, where John Lennon met Paul McCartney.

This brings up the topic question:

What if John hadn't met Paul?

 

What would the four be doing? What would your life be like?

Have fun! a-hard-days-night-george-9

(Has someone already started a thread like this? I feel like they have.. a-hard-days-night-ringo-4)

 

Edit: The anniversary is July 6th, I have trouble with timezones

I'm in love, but I'm lazy.

i guess if they hadn't met that day the eventually will….it's fate bro…but if they never never never met..i guess john had eventually become owner of a shoe repair and paul a signer in nightclubs…george still stays with paul and ringo will be the only one that shine with his group…still, no beatles and no Rubber Soul or revolution..blue-meanie

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

My life would have NO MEANING. Well, fine. It would have SOME meaning.

John might be an old "weirdo." He MIGHT still be married to Cyn. Erm… maybe he would be a nicer dad to Julian. 

Paul might have made it semi-big, but I definitely wouldn't be going to see him in six days.

George might be with Paul still? 

Ringo might be in his other group. 

And all four of them would have some weird sense of something missing in their lives. 

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

The world would be soooooooooooooooooooo boring.

 

The cars wouldn't have any problems in going through Abbey Road and their signs wouldn't be stolen from time to time. Strawberry Field would be by now demolished as well as Abbey Road.

 

People wouldn't even bother to ask Where the lonely people come from. Liverpool would be known only because of their soccer team. Marcelo wouldn't have a role model, and I'd have to dress up for Halloween as anything else.

 

I'd spend less time on Internet and I'd have to listen to stupid reggaetton or some something like that.

 

Correction : The would would be so boring and so STUPID!

I have to believe that, unless they gave up music, they would have met eventually on the Liverpool rock & roll scene.  Kind of like how they had to eventually meet Ringo.  Ringo was the best drummer in the city and everyone knew it…it was only a matter of time before they drafted him.

Sure thing. Maybe I would take Bono as a role model! Oh no! That would be a horrible dystopia! Like in "Back to the Future II"

The sixties would had been shit, Maybe no rock music? For sure, not as we know it.

I'd like to say "thank you" on behalf of the group and ourselves and I hope we passed the audition. John Lennon

Well, John very nearly quit music when Julia died. If Paul hadn't been there to console him and convince him to return to the band, who knows? It just wouldn't be the same.

Without The Beatles, music today would be WAY different. I doubt it'd be better. I'd like to do some time travelling and make some experiments. See what the world would be like without The Beatles, without The Rolling Stones, without Queen, without the 60's, 70's, and 80's.

I think Ringo wanted to be a hairdresser, so he probably would have ended up doing that, scarily

I wouldn't have a meaningful exsistence, there woulden't be a Beatles Bibel, none of us would be fun people to be around, We wouldn't have met joe or MrBig,Or Marcelo, or Skye, or *. And the names John, Paul, George, and Ringo would mean nothing.                                                             *Ect. Ect. Ect.
