The Beatles goofing around

The Beatles filming Help!

I started to be an engineer but I banged me thumb on the first day. I became a drummer because it was the only thing I could do. But whenever I hear another drummer I know I`m no good. (John Lennon) taught me the song I sing. I can only play on the off beat because John can`t keep up on the rhythm guitar. I`m no good on the technical things but I`m good with all the motions, swinging my head, like. That`s because I love to dance but you can`t do that on the drums. I figure we`re good for another four years. I don`t want to invest me money in stocks or anything. I just want to have it and draw 20 or 30 quid a week. The main thing is, I don`t ever want to go back to work. - Ringo Starr

“Something like George passing, it makes you think, `God things are so impermanent: suddenly there's this little friend of mine, he used to get on the bus, and now he's passed away.' There's that whole lifetime of a friendship that physically has ended, not emotionally.”- Paul McCartney

The Beatles

"It's being here now that's important. There's no past and there's no future. Time is a very misleading thing. All there is ever, is the now. We can gain experience from the past, but we can't relive it; and we can hope for the future, but we don't know if there is one."
— George Harrison

The song's genesis came in India, after The Beatles attended a lecture by Maharishi Mahesh Yogi about a "son of the mother nature". This inspired both Paul McCartney and John Lennon to write songs about the same subject. McCartney's composition "Mother Nature's Son" was selected for The Beatles (The White Album), while Lennon's song "Child of Nature" was not. However, both were demoed at George Harrison's Esher home in May 1968. The demo featured Lennon's double-tracked vocal and playing an acoustic guitar. After that, Lennon continued to play it into the Get Back sessions. Eventually, the lyrics were scrapped and replaced by the now well known "Jealous Guy" lyrics for Imagine.

"These critics with the illusions they've created about artists -- it's like idol worship. They only like people when they're on their way up ... I cannot be on the way up again.

The Beatles Live at Shea Stadium

The Shea Stadium concert on August 15 was record breaking and one of the most famous concert events of its era. It set records for attendance and revenue generation. Promoter Sid Bernstein said, "Over 55,000 people saw the Beatles at Shea Stadium. We took $304,000, the greatest gross ever in the history of show business" demonstrating that outdoor concerts on a large scale could be successful and profitable.

Early Beatles

Many people blame John's obsession with Yoko Ono and/or Paul's new love, Linda Eastman, as the reason for the band's break up. However, the band members had been growing apart for years. On August 20, 1969, the Beatles recorded together for the very last time and in 1970 the group officially dissolved.

One of George's quotes

Harrison's post-Beatles career started with the critically acclaimed solo album All Things Must Pass.
His role as a film producer took off when he worked on Monty Python's Life of Brian in 1979.
He was also responsible for The Long Good Friday, Time Bandits and Mona Lisa.
In the 1980s Harrison teamed up with Jeff Lynne, Bob Dylan, Tom Petty and Roy Orbison as The Travelling Wilburys.

Funny John

The film A Hard Days Night was successful both financially and critically; it was rated by Time magazine as one of the all-time great 100 films. British critic Leslie Halliwell described it as a "comic fantasia with music; an enormous commercial success with the director trying every cinematic gag in the book" and awarded it a full four stars. The film is credited with having influenced 1960s spy films, The Monkees' television show and pop music videos.

Beatles smoked when they met the Queen

The Beatles were together in a group and led the party because 'Beatles' is the first name in the alphabetical order of the list. As they shuffled down the corridor towards the ballroom, everyone seemed solemn. The Beatles led the male MBEs and from another room, a host of middle-aged female MBEs emerged and walked ahead of the Beatles. As the Beatles were to go forward to meet the Queen together, a member of the party asked them if they were nervous. John replied, "Yes, we are a bit but we'll be all right when we go into our routine." When the Queen presented the group with their silver medals, she said to Paul, "How long have you been together now?" He replied, "Oh, for many years." Ringo said, "Forty years." The Queen then turned to Ringo and said, "Are you the one who started it?" He replied, "No, I was the last to join. I'm the little fellow." The Queen turned to John and said, "Have you been working hard lately?" and he replied, "No, we've been on holiday."

Beatles Psychedelic

The band's stylistic range expanded in another direction in 1966 with the B-side to the "Paperback Writer" single: "Rain", described by Martin Strong in The Great Rock Discography as "the first overtly psychedelic Beatles' record". Other psychedelic numbers followed, such as "Tomorrow Never Knows" (actually recorded before "Rain"), "Strawberry Fields Forever", "Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds" and "I Am the Walrus". The influence of Indian classical music was evident in songs such as Harrison's "Love You To" and "Within You Without You", whose intent, writes Gould, was "to replicate the raga form in miniature".
