I'm glad you can see the point, because number one on the Wikipedia is Stuart Sutcliffe, who was with them while Pete was, and the fourth person on your list. You can't say one early member is excluded and another included... IMO. The argument is what constitutes the 5th Beatle. My candidates, and I only have 2, are George Martin and Billy Preston - the two big musical contributors. I just accept that there are others who have claim, or lay claim, to the title. Is Pete really worth any less consideration than Murray the K (who called himself the 5th Beatle in 1964!)?

I'm with Leggy Mountbatten, obviously before he tragically went and accepted a teaching post in Australia while they were visiting with the mystic Arthur Sultan in Bognor Regis.

Just noticed the new avatar, don't know how slow on the uptake, but like it!

This thread really isn't the proper place to post this, but I saw a wonderful bit of idiocy today that I just have to share. I was glancing at the local newspaper which featured a piece looking at how high taxes have gotten in Canada (compared to average salary) between 1961 and the present. At the top of the article, under the "2012" there were a few illustrative modern-day photographs: A guy using a tablet, a Starbuck's coffee cup, Justin Bieber at the mic. And similarly, under the "1961": A Volkswagen beetle (fine), a crowd of people standing in a Peace-symbol arrangement (wha?), and...The Beatles at JFK airport! (argh!!) I had to snort with contempt...it's a lousy excuse for a newspaper anyways.

I don't get it. The Beatles weren't at the JFK airport in 1961? blue-meanie

I presume the mic Beiber was at was either turned off or plugged into autotune.

 

Beatles at JFK in '61? There was no JFK airport in 1961, it was renamed that in 1963, they would have been at Idlewild Airport. Yeah im being nitpicky and facetious.a-hard-days-night-paul-11

I guess his voice is a little weak, but I wouldn't say it's bad. I don't know why you're talking about lights here, either.

I believe he is saying that he can't believe Bieber would get a record contract.

 

I'm not surprised he got one because you have people like Nicki Minaj who have contracts and judge on American Idol. ahdn_paul_01

Also its a good way to make money off little girls' parents who will take them to see him or buy his music or whatever.

Having a talent is no longer required to get a record deal, make loads of money and live happily ever after. As I have a sister who listens to the chart show every week, this is something I know only too well.

Moving along in our God given ways, safety is sat by the fire/Sanctuary from these feverish smiles, left with a mark on the door.

Yesterday a co-worker asked what I was listening to and when I said The Beatles, she rattled something off about when Ringo took drugs and wrote Yellow Submarine.

That's all wrong. Actually, Ringo took a Yellow Submarine to write a song about drugs.

No, no, that's not right, either. He took a yellow submarine down to the bottom of the ocean so he could write a song about an Octopus's Garden.

From Thebeatlesonline.com: Some claim Yellow Submarine is a veiled reference to drugs. In New York, Nembutal capsules were apperently known as 'yellow submarines' at the time. However, Paul denied these allegations, insisting it was a children's song.

Starstruck Fan meeting Paul McCartney: Hey, I really liked that song you wrote about pills, "Yellow Submarine".

Paul: No no mate, you've got it wrong. That's just a children's song.

SFMPM: Oh. Well I also liked that song that John wrote about acid, "Lucy In the..."

Paul: (sighing) Look, the song's NOT about drugs, all right? It's about a bloody child's painting. Not everything is about drugs!

SFMPM: Isn't "Fixing A Hole" about heroin?

Paul: NO!!

SFMPM: Well, anyways, you wrote some great love songs too. I like "Got To Get You Into My Life"

Paul: No, no, that one's about drugs.
