Then we will have never seen George's glorious mustache! or Ringo's! I personally prefer '67 Beatles over '64. Although they all looked very stunning in 1964, Especially John and Paul.

SO HARD TO CHOOSE!

Then there would be no glorious mustaches and beards in the post Beatlemania era. And McBeardy wouldn't be a nickname for Paul when he had his beard

What if the Beatles had never gone to Hamburg?

The film would have featured songs like 'Your Mother Should Have Known Better', 'I'm Happy Just To Dance With The Walrus', 'And I Love The Fool On The Hill ' and other such nonsense.

What if The Beatles' names were Killian, Alejandro, Maximilian and Herb?

I did not see a question from either of you. @Starr Shine? is going to send her cat after you.

What if the Beatles had never had the opportunity (To go to Hamburg) because they never met Allan Williams?

Then they wouldn't be a tight of a band as they were.

 

(remember you gotta ask a question when you answer one or else this thread will die)

 

What if the Beatles never used drugs of any kind ever?

Then we wouldn't have Rain , Strawberry Fields, the entire MMT album, the list goes on... and we wouldn't have this... and the second half of the Beatles' career would be a thousand times less interesting. 

What if Paul had never seen that lefty chap playing a re-strung righty guitar and picked up the notion of re-stringing his own? 

It verges from the sublime to the ridiculote

The Beatles would have been a really interesting piano band. Please Don't Bring Your Banjo Back would have gone to #1.

Speaking of which, what if John Lennon had preferred banjo to guitar?

I'm like Necko only I'm a bassist ukulele guitar synthesizer kazoo penguin and also everyone. Or is everyone me? Now I'm a confused bassist ukulele guitar synthesizer kazoo penguin everyone who is definitely not @Joe.  This has been true for 2016 & 2017 Sig-Badge.png but I may have to get more specific in the future.

If John preferred banjo over guitar, he probably would've played the banjo more, and his songs might as well be classified as folk or country

 

What if The Beatles formed in 1972, and split up in the early 1980's?

Sgt. Pepper would have been a trailblazing disco album.  They'd have a disco period before returning to general classic rock.

What if John and Paul showed up on SNL when Lorne Michaels made his cash offer?

You are all my friends.

What if Paul hadn't demanded that John, George, and Ringo play their instruments just like he wanted them to on some songs? How would those songs sound if they had be able to put in what they thought would sound good in the song?

Depends on what song and what insturment(s) Paul wasn't letting them play

What if Abbey Road was never released, but the White Album was released in 1970 instead of LIB ?

I was thinking about them on their usual instruments. So for example, if Ringo had been allowed to play the drums the way he thought they should sound on some songs (the ones where Paul told him exactly how to play), how would the song have turned out different.
