OK Missy - I get enough spit takes from skye! Don't you start!
 

Besides, the topic title says "If you could change ONE thing about the Beatles, what would it be?" She didn't ask "if you could change ONE thing about mithveaen, what would it be?"

I've got a few changes in mind, but since the thread topic specifies ONE thing, I'll say that I wish the Beatles had left behind a decent document of those legendarily frenzied Hamburg sets.


That would be amazing.

That Phil Spector wasn't the producer on Let It Be. Maybe if george-martin had done it, it wouldn't be such a disliked album.

That Across The Universe would have really been properly done. The versions that are out there are beautiful because of their unique flaws, but still I wish that they would have done one really great version. I think the best one is the anthology version.

I agree about the Hamburg stuff, or maybe some videos of the Cavern other than that one.

skye - I don't have a drinking problem. I sip my coffee, read a funny post from you or mithveaen and spit it out - no problem.a-hard-days-night-ringo-15

There were a lot of great answers to this thread. It's amazing to see all the ways the the perfect little band could have been so much better - at least the circumstances anyway.

We Fab-o-philes aren't very demanding are we?

Meh, he didn't say anything about you. I think he was only talking about spit takes.

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

Almighty Zig?

I prefer Grand High Exalted Mystic Ruler, thank you very much (sorry Jackie!). Besides, folks at your tender ages should be aspiring to much loftier heights than just trying to impress me (you both do, BTW). 

The spit take thing used to be an inside joke between skye and I. Then a few others joined in. I think it has run it's course anyway.

On topic: With all of the discussions about the women in John's life, am I the only one that wishes he was single for a couple of years? Or would that leave him without a muse?

His best songs came from the situation of his family, be it Love (Julia, Good Night, Jealous Guy), Stories of affairs or whatever else. But he was somewhat single during the Lost Weekend though.

I don't know if John would have survived single. We all know how addicted to Yoko he was, and from reading Cynthia's biography he was the same way with her, at least in the beginning. I wish he would have maybe stayed with May Pang longer because she actually encouraged his relationship with Julian and it sounds like Yoko did just the opposite for a while.

I agree with those who said Brian E. doesn't die when he did.  Would've been a very different outcome, I think - though how, I've no idea.

That's why I think it could have been good for him to learn to be alone. He would have to decide, instead of passing it off to someone else.

Never thought of that! Definatively changing to that! Also what does your signature mean?


Haha, I was waiting months for somebody to ask that! That's a lyric from the King Crimson song "Happy Family". It's from their 1970 Lizard album and it's an allegory about the breakup of the Beatles. (Jonah, Jude, Silas and Rufus!) Take a look at the album cover, top left corner:

Very interesting skye. As GniknuS said, he may have had a rough time being single - on a personal level. However, on a professional level, since some of his best stuff was based on raw emotion, imagine (sorry!) what kind of songs could have come from that type of angst.

But is it fair to want a artist to suffer because he could have created better art? I think That is ruthless and unfair
