My reason for bringing it up in this thread is the fact that there are nice articles about John, Paul and Klaus Voorman and each article talks about (among other things) the breakup. I particularly liked the article about KV becuase I know so little about him and he talked about the end of the Beatles from his point of view. He said that as far back as 1966 John had confided in him many times about how unhappy he was being a Beatle. He really resented all of the attention and hated the fact that he could not go out on his own without being mobbed. Klaus said when Yoko came along, she showed John how to use that to his advantage instead of being suffocated by it.


Now this is the first time I hear something positive about Yoko that truly makes sense to me!!

 

Thanks for sharing this Zig! I might ask them to my Santa in Barnes and Noble… a-hard-days-night-ringo-8

Here comes the sun….. Scoobie-doobie…… Something in the way she moves…..attracts me like a cauliflower… Bop. Bop, cat bop. Go, Johnny, Go. Beware of Darkness…  I believe in SH...

There definitely needs to be more interviews with Klaus out there because he has a unique perspective in the Beatles story.

I'm not talking about his life story or whatever, but he was around the Beatles in Hamburg and this seems to be the least known about time in Beatles history, so clearly he could offer some perspective on what really did and did not happen. It's more than a "footnote" because he was a friend and could offer a real viewpoint, rather than some biographer that wasn't there and is just basing his information on second hand accounts.

I'm with you, Gnik – the article in the magazine left me wanting to know so much more about the Hamburg days.

Yeah, mith it was positive. The fact that Yoko helped free John from certain demons is one of the reasons why my attitude towards her has warmed of late.

To the fountain of perpetual mirth, Let it roll for all its worth.

There are just too many unanswered questions from the Hamburg days. What really happened with John, Pete and that sailor? What did they really do on stage? You could argue that Hamburg was the most important phase of the Beatles career, after all it supposedly takes 10,000 hours of practice before you're a genius, so, like John said, they just couldn't help improving because they were playing so much. So they crafted their great sound in Liverpool, then sort of cleaned it up with the help of Brian when they got back to Liverpool. We just need more information, I think a whole book should come out just from the Hamburg days!
