Linda was the best. She really defined the post-Lennon,Harrison,Starr era Beatles and took them to new heights. Jet! Woo woo woo woo woo woo woo woo woooooo!

The Black one.

They wouldn't be shit without Blind Lemon Pie....plus he started the Everly Brothers....for real...seen it in a documentary

George because 'While My Guitar Gently Weeps' is the only Beatles song I really, really like...probably because it doesn't sound like a Beatles song.

and because he seemed way more chill then the rest of those bozos

I’m going to have to go with Ringo. I think George was the most consistent but Ringo is such a badass dork. Not to mention his stint on Shining Times Station sharing the roll of Mr. Conductor with the late George Carlin.
Posted: Sep 17, 2008 3:22 pm
George was known as the "wormy" Beatle
Posted: Sep 17, 2008 3:40 pm
Mark David Chapman

Mark David Chapman

Even better!

I gotta say either Harrison or Ringo. Harrison's songs, especially "I Need You", are turning out to be my favorites. Ringo, for playing the goof, seemed to be the one with the most common sense out of any of them.
Posted: Sep 17, 2008 7:38 pm
Easily Ringo. The rest were too hung up on themselves!
Posted: Sep 17, 2008 8:21 pm
i stopped paying attention to them after gene and paul kicked ace out of the band.

What? Mae West was a member of the Beatles?
Posted: Sep 17, 2008 9:47 pm
I wonder if when they're all gone <sigh> (serious moment of reflection) they'll pin them all to a wall somewhere behind glass?

25 posts so far and no one's said the most obvious choice.....

Favorite Beatles in order from best to worst:

Ringo Starr
George Harrison
John Lennon
Stu Sutcliffe
Pete Best
Billy Preston
George Martin
Paul McCartney
Eric Crapton

I wish there were more Beatles so I could put McCartney and Crapton down farther.
Posted: Sep 18, 2008 6:10 pm
Billy Preston

in the beatles my favorite was lennon, he had a great voice and wrote some cool tunes. mccartney was too into showtunes, but redeemed himself with his little richard impersonations and helter skelter. ringo was a rocker and at times a great drummer. however, for post beatles recordings, mccartney is my favorite for his work with wings. cold turkey aint bad, neither are instant karma or several others, but most later era lennon sucked. george harrison sucked. he could ape some rockabilly leads and thats about it. stealing his my sweet lord song from the chiffons he's so fine was an incredible blunder. so, in my opinion lennon was best, then mccartney and ringo third. harrison a distant fourth. the rest werent real beatles, except sutcliffe who i've never heard, but what i have heard is that he was an artist and sucked at bass, contributing nothing creatively to the band. of course the only true best of the beatles was pete. billy preson is quite cool and did his thing, but they werent even really a band anymore at that point. george martins contributions to the band were almost all horrible, accompaniments that didnt need to be there taking away from the sound of the band. of course there were exceptions. and how was eric crapton a beatle? other than playing the lead on while my guitar gently weeps and being a member of dirty mac he didnt have any beatles involvment i know of. he does totally suck though, so he's at the bottom of my list too.

The only two musicians to play with the Beatles(that I'm aware of) besides hired orchestration and everybody they gathered around them for the taping of All You Need Is Love were Billy Preston and Eric Clapton. For the entire Beatles discography, just those two. Billy Preston is often reffered to as the fifth Beatle. I felt like including Crapton basically to point out that he's the only one Paul McCartney is better than.

John Lennon, for two reasons other than his work in The Beatles:
In His Own Write, which is a hell of a fun little book- especially when you're 15 years old like I was when my neighbor gave me her copy
playing guitar on the Yoko Ono/ Plastic Ono Band LP; fucking savage, proto-no wave shit and great

George runs a close second, I guess, but I have never had much use for Paul or Ringo
Posted: Sep 21, 2008 2:13 am
Ringo was better in more good movies, so yep, Ringo.
Posted: Sep 21, 2008 4:38 am
Ringo was very very funny as Frank Zappa in 200 Motels, but I don't think I ever saw him in any other movies; forgot all about that

Dude, if you're like me, you care more about most movies than you do about the Beatles catalog of .....
Posted: Sep 21, 2008 5:47 am
Non-Beatle music explorations-wise, I'd vote for Paul McCartney and Wings. Nothing else compares, well, solo beatle anyways....

Ye shan't forget "That'll Be the Day"

One of the finest movies you've probably never seen.

Keith Moon's in that one, as well.

I saw it with Luciferus, or however that's spelled....primo!

"That'll Be the Day"

Isn't there supposed to be a sequel to that one out there somewhere?
Posted: Sep 21, 2008 10:08 am
I can't believe you guys are all forgetting what makes Ringo the greatest Beatle!
Posted: Sep 21, 2008 2:10 pm
I definitely didn't forget.... I LOVE Caveman!
Posted: Sep 22, 2008 12:41 pm
Pete Best

Plastic Ono Band

This album fucking rules. I can barely listen to the beatles anymore but this is always in heavy rotation.
