In those days John Lennon and Paul McCartney were considered to be the main talent. Ringo Starr was said to have the least talent while George Harrison just hanged in there.

But now, in retrospect, who was the most talented of them?

I think it was Paul McCartney. All those beautiful songs written in combination with John Lennon; and then he did not just play the bass guitar. And that enthusiasm on the stage!

Ringo Starr's career after the break-up must put him in a close second!

I don't think John Lennon performed to his full potential.

Sorry George, you came fourth. But you were all very talented.

The most successful British pop group ever. When they broke up each member became famous on his own!

One so much that a fan killed him!

In retrospect,

I guess they were all wonderful individuals in their own right, but I have a special place in my heart for all of the..


John and George dying has been very sad... sigh

Well, seen as Paul has disgraced the legacy and message of rock n roll by now thoroughly disappearing up the arse of the establishment then it's John.

It's unfortunate that Paul didn't find a fan of his own to stop him from becoming old, washed-up and making a fool of himself.

Lennon and McCartney bounced off each other, writing some great stuff. Lennon made some decent stuff after the split.McCartney didn't write much of interest to me after..George Harrison wrote a few top tracks too..

George Harrison without a doubt up there with Eric clapton and Jimi Hendrix as one of thee great Guitarists of all time people forget he Wrote graet songs when in The Beatles and after From My sweet Lord to Whilst my guitar gently weeps, which incidently Clapton played lead guitar on, he also wrote one of my fave songs what am i without your love and the great album All things must past. he was also the Beatle that gave it its Indian feel in later year after Ravi shanker taught him how to play guitar, anything with strings George could play.

From a political slant it has to be john Working class hero inluenced me polituically

I always liked George the most, he had a quiet coolness about him. I never cared much for Ringo's drumming style because he actually had none, but in his defense he was a good accompanist drummer albeit rather pedestrian. John was a great writer "Imagine" was a classic. Together Paul & John were a great writing duo but I think John had the edge on Paul in that department.
The Beatles were a classic example of together they were greater than the sum of their parts.
With 20/20 hindsight it was a mistake for them to split up.

Ringo was often overlooked and even I didn't know that a lot of the songs I loved were written by Ringo.


Photograph was written by both Ringo and George.

I think the Beatles were great especially for their time. I wouldn't say they could be compared to great classical composers but with George Martin as their producer they were able to produce some amazing songs with orchestral sounds - Hey Jude is a good example of this at the end of the song.
