All of them are just AMAZING. I feel like each had their own thing they were great at. My personal favorite is George, but I don't have a great reason why I like him over the others. 

John (the intellectual): He was the person who got everyone together and was the sort of leader (though later on he and Paul went head-to-head on that position). He had a real passion and talent. During performances, he was very interactive with the audience and was very witty. John wrote many incredibly great songs and went on spreading the word on what he thought what was right (which was basically peace and love). However, he wasn't the best family man and was a bit insensitive which slightly negates my opinion on him. 

Paul (the original teenybopper lighthouse): He was the songwriting powerhouse. I mean, have you SEEN the White Album? He was also incredibly charismatic and had the cutest baby face. He was the most mainstream of the group and attracted a lot of teen girls and such which I don't exactly like. But definitely NOT a good reason to not like HIM. However, whenever the band did mini get togethers, Paul was never there, and was always too busy to help out with the other band members music. Whenever they (as in Paul, Ringo, and George) DID get together on the Beatles Anthology, he was so dominating, it was kind of annoying.

Ringo (the comedian): All of the Beatles members were hilarious, but Ringo had an amazing sense of humor that rose above the rest. He was also a great drummer and went on later to narrate Thomas the Train (hahaha, that fact always gives me a good laugh).

Finally, George (the deep-thinker, the mystic): He was sort of the calm of the group and had an amazing impact on the sort of music and style they became. He was also hilariously witty at some times and created incredibly great songs. I actually don't exactly like his Indian era (which his increasing meditations began shutting out his wife), but that's just the lifestyle that he chose. I'm also sort of disappointed in the fact that he cheated on his wife with Ringo's wife, but if you look at it from this way, you see it wasn't too bad. If George never divorced Pattie, she couldn't have given him kids (which means we would never have Dhani). Ringo also met a better girl for him. But anyways, George was just a great, humble guy.

Hello, @JauntyMonty! We invite you to introduce yourself on the "Introduce Yourself" thread.

and don't forget Abbey Road it's totally his album it's more of a Paul McCartney & Beatles album than The Beatles and why do you think he was dominant i think he was as dominant as John and if John was in anthology he would be equally dominant and what are the incidents where he wasn't with other 3, i think he was the only one who wanted beatles to stay and was also against stop touring and he's the reason that Abbey Road came out otherwise it wouldn't be there and i think Paul has some magic that attracts every girl like almost every girl on this site wants him and i also know many other girls.

I still stand by my opinion of 2 years ago. George and Ringo equally. George wrote one of my favourite Beatlessongs (Something)and a lot of other great songs and I just like their personalities..or at least how they come across. Their sense of humour is awesome (so are John and Paul's, of course). Also, I love Octopus Garden.

Might have been John if I wouldn't have read as much about them as I did. Reading about what he was like kind of ruined it for me. As for Paul, I don't have anything against Paul but he's just not my favourite you know?

Paul is my favourite because he has written most of my favourite songs (For No One, I will, I've Just Seen A Face, etc.). He is also very talented, he can play so many instruments and he can play them really well. Of course, as a teenage girl, looks do matter, so yes, I have to admit also because of his good looks, smile, eyes, his hair, etc. His personality seems great, I love his humor. He is just a loveable person, well that's the way he comes across.

Although I would like to add that recently I've started liking George more and more. I think I can compare to him better than to Paul, being a bit quiet myself but being lively around friends/people that I know well. Of course he's also very handsome...

So Paul is my number 1 and George is a very close second.

Paul McCartney.

Being a leftie, I was attracted to him because of his left-handedness which as I've explained elsewhere was hugely important for a minority in society, but his general demeanour and commonsense in communication countered John's tendency to sometimes go too far in interviews - and this was important.

The Beatles were effectively three until they became four when Ringo came aboard, and the personality mix was perfect. John's edge, brilliant though it was, was more easily tolerated because Paul employed a more compromising tone in interviews and so the band came over better both to its fans and to those generations who were eager to write it off.

John started the Beatle wagon rolling and Paul did as much as anyone to keep it rolling and productive for as long as possible. John and Paul were the towering talents in the band with George growing and developing as the years passed. Ringo was the ideal drummer and had the right kind of personality to cope with the three talented front men.

From the off though, and cool as John was - and they don't get much cooler - Paul had an appeal that made him a favourite with the fairer sex, but also to young men who admired both his musicality and his ability to be a good ambassador for the band. 

As a youngster, when I was watching interviews with the band on television, I could feel a degree of adult hostility when their answers were provocative or careless, but Paul always seemed to rescue the situation by being personable and (mostly) sincere. Your mum liked Paul and that helped balance a situation because your dad almost certainly didn't like John (just like Paul's dad).
