Hello Senters1982,
So good to see a Beatle's fan posting such a positive post.
They were/are excellent musicians/human beings.

I was a Beatle freak when I was younger! We used to be able to stay at the theater movie after movie, after movie, and we sure did when "A Hard Day's Night" came out! We would scream with the best of them at the Eastown Theater, lol!

George was my favorite, even to the point where I started making my Capital G's like his writing, then later in life I had to practice to make the G look normal again. I was very saddened when he died, much more so than when John died, but John's death was horrible!

Paul still has it, that is for sure. Apparently Ringo does not want anymore fan mail, but oh well, though I still like the Beatles, I've grown up.

What a great story! Two legends getting together again to perform. That audience must have been rocking all night long, and it was good to read that tributes were done to honor George and John.

Paul is definitely an extremely talented musician and writer...but Ringo? Just a funny looking kid who got lucky years ago. Plays the drums like a grade schooler and can't sing. Perhaps he collaborated in writing some of their songs, but it was John and Paul who were the most gifted in that area.

Ringo sang the Buck Ownens hit They Are Going to Put Me In the Movies. He had hits after the break up including It Don't Come Easy, a great song. No doubt John and Paul had the most writing talent but George and Ringo made big contributions to the group.

Plays the drums like a pro because that is what he is a pro and a funny dude with a lot of talent.His voice isn't great but it passes on the songs he sings.

I remember everyone screaming so hard at that movie that no one heard a word of the movie. We sat through it three times before we finally heard it. I was 13 when they first came on Ed Sullivan, and they have been my favorites ever since.

Love your ideals about God and the Beatles,you are a very kind honest person.
I was a bit upset about Ringo until I found out why he said no more autographs.
People were asking him to sign so many items and then putting them on Ebay to sell.
Sadly as always the press jumped to conclusions, the video Ringo did was only on his website, but the press never told about that.

God bless.

Yea I was 10 and I remember the old black and white TV set we had to watch them on.We didn't get a colored TV until about 1968.I don't think Ed Sullivan was in color until about 1966 maybe.Do you remember when color came to that show?

Carl Perkins was a prince of a guy, his last concert was with Paul and Eric in 1997, a few months before his fatal heart-attack.
Carl had a big heart, his duet with Paul in 1982 on Get it, was cool.
I think the 1985 HBO special was called Go Cat Go.
Ringo jammed on the drums,but it was during his drinking period, he had a glass of whisky next to his drum kit, but thank God he became sober in 1988,and remains so.

And Buck Owens cool too, he and his Buckaroos had some great songs,back when country was really country.

About 1988 a video came out called Carl Perkins and friends Blue Suede shoes. It has the bass player from the Stray cats.Dave Edmunds-Ringo -George- Eric Clapton-Roseanne Cash-and many others I think it even has Carl perkins son on it too.

Yes, such wonderful memories! I don't recall that same enthusiasm when "Help" came out. I had all their 33-RPM Vinyl records, but over the years they disappeared and I'm not even sure where they went to! I still enjoy the Beatles at age 57. My daughter gave me a CD for my birthday a few years ago, of all their greatest hits. I listen to it often.
