Not at all. Jane did nothing for their music and did not lead to the evolution from She Loves You to Eleanor Rigby

I wouldn't be that extreme, though I would have definitely not counted her as a "5th Beatle." I agree with The Walrus-- Jane was a muse, so that means she must have done something for their music. I also wouldn't say she didn't lead at all to the evolution- I'd say she wasn't a main factor.

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

Yeah, I don't really think of her as a 5th Beatle.  She's not even a musician.  I just wanted people to recognize her influence.  She deserves credit for introducing Paul to new things and new music forms and being an inspiration to him.  Paul said as much after they broke up, in "Martha My Dear."  Martha of course was the name of his dog, but the song was a thank you to Jane for being his inspiration, and his plea to her..."don't forget me."  Like someone would forget having a Beatle for a boyfriend.

Eric Clapton wasn't billed equally? a-hard-days-night-ringo-7(I'm honestly asking - no snark!)

Welcome to the BBF!


No - Clapton received no credit on the
White Album, even though it is well known that he played on WMGGW. The appropriate singles were credited to "The Beatles with Billy Preston."

Thanks for the welcome.
