Ram is also a very good album, IMO, it's even better than Band On the Run.It has been recently remastered and I think you can hear Paul at his best.

Paul's solo career was interesting between 1970 and 1973, but then he ventured into easy-listening pop.("Listen to what the man said" omg, is it really Paul?).

For those who are looking for a continuation of the Beatles style in the 70's, I recommend that they listen to Supertramp( albums such as Even in the Quietest moments,Crisis, Crime of the century are sometimes very Beatles-sounding)

ps: don't read the album reviews about Supertramp in Rolling Stone magazine,the journalists don't understand their music; since according to RS magazine,

British+Pop+melodic+original= not serious at all(The Beatles being the exception).

Led Zeppelin and The Beatles are my two favorite bands ever, their music is so different I don't find anything in comparing the two.

Harrison is my favorite. I just love the song Eleanor Rigby, and I sang both "Let It Be" and "Imagine" for school talent shows last year. ^_^

Out of the four, I only have one Harrison album: All Things Must Pass, and in my opiinion it was a huge disappointment, I only liked Isn't it a pity, My Sweet Lord was a complete rip off of The Chiffons He's so fine.So overall I think it was wise for his contributions to be limited on Beatles albums, apart from Something and While my Guitar Gently Weeps and even then Clapton played guitar.

What about Rubber Soul's "If I Needed Someone" or Revolver's "Taxman or I Want To Tell You", just three great George Harrison compositions you have overlooked.

OK I didn't mention them all, I would have been here for ages. I'm not disputing that what he did with the Beatles was good, but his solo stuff overall was poor. Before anyone jumps down my throat that excludes The Travelling Wilburys and his work on the Anthology videos.No disrespect to him but I prefer Ringo albums to Georges. Savoy truffle is a bowel movement, and that is from a beatles fan since 1962.

George is my favourite Beatle by far. I completely believe his defence that the likeness in "My Sweet Lord" to "He's So Fine" was a subliminal thing. And to get a song like that, I would not have cared if he had completely ripped off every artist I have ever loved.

"Ladies and gentlemen, what you are about to see is the product of our imaginations and believe me, at this point they are quite vivid" Paul

The Beatles' Classic 1967 Feature Film Restored For Worldwide DVD and Blu-Ray Release on October 8th

In September 1967, The Beatles loaded a film crew onto a bus along with friends, family and cast and headed west on the A30 out of London to make their third film, this time conceived and directed by The Beatles themselves.

"Paul said 'Look I've got this idea' and we said 'great!' and all he had was this circle and a little dot on the top - that's where we started," Ringo

In the wake of the extraordinary impact of the Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band album and the One World satellite broadcast of "All You Need Is Love", The Beatles devised, wrote and directed their third film, Magical Mystery Tour, a dreamlike story of a coach day trip to the seaside.

The film features a fabulous supporting cast of character actors and performers, (including Ivor Cutler, Victor Spinetti, Jessie Robins, Nat Jackley, Derek Royle, and the inimitable Bonzo Dog Doo-Dah Band).

Apple Films have fully restored the long out-of-print, classic feature film for October 8th release worldwide (October 9th in North America) on DVD and Blu-ray with a remixed soundtrack (5.1 and stereo) and special features.

A special, boxed deluxe edition will also be available, and, for the first time ever, there will be a limited theatrical release from September 27th.

This new release also feature three new edits of some of the song performances, as well as scenes that were cut out of the original film.

First of all everyone is entitled to there opinion on music, pretty simalar to women haha

Its not that Harrisons solo stuff was poor on all things must pass, it was overdubed to hell, even he admitted that himself. But since youtubes come on the scene, theres been a whole lotta bootlegs of jus him and his guitar , which are amazing. His last album Brainwashed was by far his best in my opinion. If you aint heard of Joe, have a listen its spot on.

I dont think you can compare Zeppelin to the Beatles. The beatles were the studio masters, and Zeppelin were the live kings by far. I cant really wholeheartly say tht as i wasnt there, but have seen everything there is to see of them both on visual. Its jus different in it. One reviewer summed it up, the 60 was the beatles, and the 70;s was Zeppelins. There ramble over now haha :)

I recently read that Jim Morrison apparantly sang on a beatles record "Happiness is a warm gun" Sept 68. Out of all the beatles biographies ive ever read ive never come across this, but it seems to be all over the internet. Jus wondered if anyone else had heard anymore on this??

What a wonderful development. What Ringo must think of it all, as I know he fondly recalls his stint with them.

Ringo Starr has issued a statement denying that he was the drummer on recently unearthed recordings by Rory Storm and The Hurricanes. As previously reported, tapes from March 1960 by Starr's pre-Beatles band were recently found in the cellar of Storm's sister's home. Scores of articles appeared last week indicating that Starr was the drummer on the recordings, but he says that's not the case.

"It's not me," Starr said, in a statement issued through his publicist. "That was done after I'd left to join the Beatles. I don't know who the drummer was but I hope that Rory fans enjoy it anyway."

Starr went on to cite two songs he did record with Storm. "The only two tracks I was on were recorded while we were in Germany in 1960, when we made a two-track acetate, and for those of you in the digi world that is a-ce-tate, of 'Mailman Bring Me No More Blues,' a Buddy Holly song sung by Lou Walters, and 'Fever.' I'd love to hear those tracks 'cause I don't have a copy."

The statement was signed "Peace & Love, Ringo."
