Is there any aspect of the work and lives of the boys that hasn't been written about? I feel like I could write a book, but then I start thinking about it, and everything has already been written, already -- yet I still feel like I want more, ha!

where are the grey areas in The Beatles legacy?

Probably a lot with John.  But somethings are really left better unsaid.

There has been so many books written on THE BEATLES that I'm surprised that there isn't a BEATLES Library yet! Take care.

Has there been one on their keen fashion sense?

Not worthy of an entire book, obv; but I'd STILL like to know exactly when & how John learned piano. The Philip Norman bio and other Beatle history books I've read all make a big deal about how he came to play the harmonica & (obviously) guitar, but not a word about his learning keyboards.

I remember George saying 'Blimey, he's always talking about “Yesterday”, you'd think he was Beethoven or somebody' - Paul McCartney

Beatle clothes, houses, cars, hairstyles, drugs, football teams, political affiliations, businesses, wives and lovers, films (including scripts and unseen photos), interviews, diaries and autobiographies, etc. There's no end of stuff to be written.

Personally I'd love to have a book of their houses, from Liverpool to Weybridge, Friar Park to the Dakota, with info on what is/was in them, the layout, who lives/d there etc. Most of the basic history is well known but who really knows how a Beatle lived? Apparently Yoko has got rooms full of John's stuff at the Dakota which is rarely seen by outsiders, but I'd dearly love to know what's in her collection.

Something i would find interesting is "The Beatles relation with The Rolling Stones" because i have seen that many people believe they are rival bands and i think they were friends or at least they got along well, i would find that interesting.

And would tell me in what i am wrong and in what i am right

John, Paul, George and Ringo= The Beatles

Yes, I got sent one but haven't had a chance to write about it yet. I think it's called The Beatles v The Rolling Stones.

That always struck me as strange - that notion of having to choose sides, Stones or Beatles, if that really was the popular perception of the day. But maybe it made sense at the time.  (Me, I wouldn't want to deprive myself of EITHER band, but of course I'd take the Beatles if you held a gun to my head.)

One day, a tape-op got a tape on backwards, he went to play it, and it was all "Neeeradno-undowarrroom" and it was "Wow! Sounds Indian!"

I think if you're posting on this site, it's basically guaranteed that you'd pick the Beatles.

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

Yeah, I guess that might've went without my saying...

Yes that also is strange to me, personally i`ve only listened to only a few Rolling Stones songs but definitely i would choose The Beatles.

I really can`t understand because it seems like the interactions between the band were friendly and with what i have read they did collaborate(not the full group) but John and Paul gave backing vocals in "We love you" a rolling Stones song and Brian Jones played the Saxophone in "You know my name(look up the number)"

Vonbontee, I Think John Learned The Piano from Paul, George Martin, Billy Preston and any pianist they met and befriended in Hamburg.
Personally I think he took tips from all of the above and hearing from ear to become the pianist he was at his death in 1980

That's as good an answer as any, I guess! I just wish there was some definitive answer, y'know - like finding out that (let's say) Aunt Mimi owned a piano and insisted that John take lessons as a boy. And that he hated being forced to learn it, only to find out years later how useful such skills would ultimately become - that'd be a nice autobiographical detail.

And let's not let the obvious go unmentioned... John and Paul went to a corner and wrote "I Wanna Be Your Man" for the Stones. Jagger and Richards were amazed that they could tear something off in a matter of minutes. Andrew Loog Oldham was an early part of the Beatles entourage as well before he became the Stones manager.
