Confused with Pink Floyd/The Who?

The who?

I dunno. mccartney-shrug_01_gif

Edit: It’d still be a stupid opinion, but at least factually more feasible.

It verges from the sublime to the ridiculote

I like to play a game with people called “Who’s George Harrison ?” 

  

Now I’m curious, what do people say (besides I Don’t Know?)

a-hard-days-night-ringo-8That’s getting to be quite the quote chain…

Honestly Walry I’m jealous that 25% of the people you know appreciate George’s amazingness.

“While I will admit to a certain cynicism, the fact is that I’m a naysayer and hatchet man in the fight against violence. I pride myself in taking a punch and I’ll gladly take another - because I choose to live my life in the company of Ghandi and King. My concerns are global. I reject absolutely revenge, aggression and retaliation. The foundation of such a method is love. I love you, Sheriff Truman.”

IMO Hey Jude , Yesterday , Let It Be and Yellow Submarine are the most popular. Beyond these–Beatles, what?

And there’s the songwriter issue, “Lennon looks great playing piano in that Hey Jude video”, sort of stuff.paul-mccartney-facepalm_gif

I don’t mind people not knowing a great deal of Beatles songs, the issue arises for me when they start coming out with opinions on the band as a whole like “they’re very overrated” without even having bothered to give them a proper go.

Wouldn’t say any of them have annoyed me, but people asking “Ringo doesn’t do music anymore, right?” . And when I had to correct twice that it was the former bassist (Stuart) of the group, not the former drummer (Pete), who died before Ringo joined the band.
