The song Here Comes The Sun was coincided for the gold record on Voyager 1. The Beatles were OK but EMI said no. Why did they say no?

Copyright doesn't apply in space. I'm not sure if that's the answer, and who in space would be stealing profit from EMI by using it, but companies do stupid things like that for stupid reasons, so I think that's it.

Except they allowed Across The Universe, so that probably just ruins my point.

If I spoke prose you'd all find out, I don't know what I talk about.

How about Phil Spector and The Long And Winding Road? Did he have a right to get mad about that?

From "Buffy The Vampire Slayer":

Spike "My point is the Beatles were a very powerful group. It's not a stretch to say that they pretty much ruled the world. When the group broke up, everybody blamed poor Yoko. The truth is, the group broke itself up. She just happened to be there."

 

 

Try spending a decade as one part of a group of three other personalities, under an endless cultural microscope.  I'm actually quite surprised that they lasted as long as they did, given the circumstances and enormous pressure put upon them.

To to echo Spike:  The Beatles broke themselves up.

The thing that broke up The Beatles is the same thing we all avoid, but cant.  It's the thing we all hate but desperately want back.  It's the thing we all hope will cure all our ails but blame for changing everything we love.

 

Time.

Incredibly so many things! Brian Epstein's death was a huge loss, and there was also Yoko Ono beginning to interfere with their music, George Harrison music only being limited to 2-3 songs per album, legal issues with Apple Corps, everyone's different song style (which led them to produce individual songs on the Beatles Albums), Paul's bossiness and taking over, and just a LOT of stuff!

Is it true that none of The Beatles could read music?

I believe that is true. I think Paul eventually taught himself though.

"Can't Buy Me Love" sold over 7 million units."Hey Jude" sold only 4 million units despite being the most commercially successful single.a-hard-days-night-ringo-13 How is that even possible a-hard-days-night-ringo-14, when RIAA is going to change its sales rate.

Did any of the Beatles ever have a broken bone?

I don't know if any Beatles had any bones broken, but I know that John had his bones licked by a worm, as he so passionately wailed in "Yer Blues." He also had his eye picked by an eagle in that song, too. Yikes. What a bad day. No wonder he had the blues.

What kind of injuries did he sustain in his '69 car wreck? Probably broke a bone or two there, right?

I decided to research this, so I Googled it. This mysterious website was the first "hit:" http://www.beatlesbible.com/1969/07/01/john-lennon-crashes-his-car-in-scotland/

According to this "Beatles Bible," John did not break any bones, but he did sustain several cuts to his face. And he must have been pretty banged up, because he spent five days in the hospital. That's what the Beatles Bible says, anyway. But… is this "bible" reliable? I'll continue to check it out and see. ;-)

Interesting web site find, @Bungalow Bob. Thank you for bringing it to our attention. The folks on this forum will enjoy all the rich information on it. I wonder if this @Joe fellow claims he was divinely inspired by the four gods of rock while writing the verses in this bible.

The question was meant to be rhetorical since John is obviously dead. 

You know, it’s been thirty-four years and it stills hurts so much. Like the day I heard the news on TV and got drunk and cried…

I’ve been reading this post and the “Which Beatles singing voice is your favorite?” one, where I agreed with others that John’s voice was the one that revealed the most of himself, the one that came from a deeper source. Now here I’ve read about John’s pain, and his heroin addiction. Perhaps this is a question for another topic but I can’t help wondering if that old cliché about the best artists being the unhappiest ones isn’t true. John was always the most troubled Beatle. Let me know what you think, and if this is out of topic please forgive me.

@Oudis, have you come across this thread "Was John haunted by his inner emptiness?" Several of the posts there touch on the theme of unhappiness and artistic talent.

http://www.beatlesbible.com/fo…..emptiness/

If I think of other threads, I will let you know.

You wrote that very well. I'm feeling your pain right along with you. I don't recall that momentous day. At that time, I was a junior high school kid who didn't know The Beatles. It is special for me to hear stories from those who remember hearing the news and their reaction to it.
