Not only is this so ignorant,ridiculous,and false on a creative and musical level,but on their personal level too. I guarantee true genuine boy bands don’t have groupies.
In this PDF file of several chapters from the book The Beatles And Their Revolutionary Bass Player by bass player Dennis Alstrand,he explains that Paul’ McCartney’s bass playing was already first rate in 1961 only months after he learned to play it which he got stuck with because John and George didn’t want to play it, and he was not a bad bass player by 1963 and you can hear on The Beatles 1963 and 1964 recordings and live playing that he was already very good even on such primitive,limited sound systems with no feedback monitors so they couldn’t even hear themselves singing and playing yet they still sang and played great and in sync with each other
George Martin Says In This book his biography,All You Need is Ears,There’s No Doubt Lennon & McCartney Were good Musicians,They Had Good Musical Brains & The Brain Is Where Music Originates,It Has Nothing To Do With Your Fingers,As It Happened They Could All Play Their Own Instruments Very Well,And that Paul is an excellent music all- arounder, probably the best bass guitar-player there is, a brilliant guitarist,a first class drummer and a competent piano player.
George Martin said in The Beatles early days he tried to learn to play the guitar in order to have a better musical communication between him and The Beatles,but he couldn’t learn it and gave it up,but he says that John and Paul learned to play the piano far more quickly than he was able to master their instrument.
To say it’s no secret that I love The Beatles would be a gross understatement. But in the the year that I’ve been writing this blog, I don’t think I’ve ever named the reasons why I love them so much. So today, that’s what I thought I’d do! Of course, I have way more than nine reasons as to why they’re my favourite band, but anyway… So in no particular order:
1. Their music.
Obviously! I’ve enjoyed The Beatles’ music since I was a kid. At that point, I very much enjoyed their simpler, more melodic songs. Nowadays, I prefer their more experimental work. Though I love most of their songs.
There is something for everyone within The Beatles’ catalogue. Whether you’re into folk, or psychedelia, or hard rock, or vaudeville, or avant-garde, or rock’n’roll, or Mowtown, or even simple pop, there’s going to be at least one song for you…

On June 18, 2017 Paul McCartney turns 75 years old.
It just seems like “Yesterday” that I was twelve years old and watching the Beatles perform live on the Ed Sullivan show. Then seeing them perform live at the Hollywood Bowl in 1964. 53 years later I am still a Beatlemanic and proud of it!
Paul McCartney is listed as the most prolific songwriter in history. His first collaborations with John Lennon were remarkable. The two of them had a wonderful chemistry together and proved it over and over. The impact the Beatles made on the world cannot be fully understood by those who were not there at the time. I always feel that my life was in black and white and did not become filled with colors until the Beatles. That’s the most simplistic way I can express what they did for me. To this day I still consider…

I’ve been thinking about doing this post for a while, but it’s taken me some time to come up with Beatles songs that are truly underrated. Since the Beatles have so many famous songs, there aren’t too many that I think are truly underrated or unknown. For this list, I’m not including any covers the Beatles did like Twist and Shout, and I’m also not including songs that are really well known like Hey Jude or She Loves You, because while I don’t think they’re overrated, they are definitely not underrated. So, with that in mind, we begin!
10. I’ll Be Back
This song is kind of similar to If I Fell, which is also on the A Hard Day’s Night album, but it’s not as well known. However, I think it’s just as good. The harmonies here, like those on If I Fell, are spot on and beautiful, and…
