Paul's turned out a bit weird and Ringo has but John was a real person and so was George. We've got a proper strong accent here in Liverpool and it's really hard to lose it coz mainly we don't want to coz we're proud of where we come from and second it's that thick that you really have to try bloody hard to kill it. Paul's got rid of his and he talks like the friggin queen now and we all say he's gone posey. If he's proud to be a Liverpudlian why's he changed the way he speaks? Load of rubbish. John never done that no matter whee he lived. He was a true Scouser through and through.

Thank you Penny Lane,

That was a great story, Do you like Elvis Presley?

I like some of his songs but not all of them, can you name some good Elvis Presley songs?

All the best xxxxx

I think Paul has lost a lot of his accent from living in the US for all these years, same goes for Ringo.

The Beatles are old school radio fonder for the new age senior citizen. The group, One Direction along with the brand new king, Justin Bieber have taken over the sales charts and dominate pop radio. The Beatles are dead or very old. You people talk shit. Bow your lowly heads to King Justin and be grateful that he has defeated and surpassed the pedophile, Michael Joseph Jackson. Like everything, it comes a time when we all have to except that music dies and change is a part of it. Long live King Justin.

This is so laughable. I remember hearing the same thing about Bobby Sherman, Jimmy Clanton, Fabian, and so many others that no one even remembers right now.

I couldn't help but laugh out loud, when I read this. I have to agree Lee, you hit it on the head! The way I see it, in the future when the Justin Biebers and the like are done with their run and they have pasted away, people will still be talking about Elvis, the Beatles, the Stones, etc. and news of the wannabes passings will not even phase the grown up groupies. As a matter of fact, they will be embarrased (if they have the nerve to confess) to mention they where a fan.
There's the key word, "mention." I have been an Elvis fan thru thick and thin.

Lennon could sing any type of music he wanted from blues to oldies to classic rock to ballads and everything in between. Not many singers have that kind of range to their voice. But the Beatles had 3 & Lennon was the best of the three.

None of those artists have five number one albums. Only two Justin Bieber compact discs missed hitting the top but still entered the billboard top ten since 2009. That is an excellent track record. Obviously, King Justin has not failed yet. He is actually very close to making the history books AND will be remembered for a long time.

Justin's 'peak' hasn't happened yet. Give him time to grow and get better at it. You seem to be concerned with songs and not albums. Justin Bieber does not have to get number one songs when it is the whole album that he is selling. He done the number one thing five times in every year he has been active. That is still pretty impressive. His popularity could fade, continue or he could someday make a huge comeback later on. You do not know what will happen.

Butt boy Bieber's Portugal show cancelled due to soft ticket sales.

If he was so good, he'd have sold out.

Like Elvis The Concert did. Elvis on video with his original band. Sold out.

Why are you so threatened by what Justin Bieber does or doesn't do? He has to make a better translation to become an adult artist. It is like everybody wants to see him fail. But I think Justin is talented enough to pull it off. Of course, that doesn't mean that he can't get harsh criticism. People in show business should expect it. It is part of the program. Justin should just ignore it and entertain his core audience.

WTF? A video selling out what? Last I knew, Elvis was dead unless it is Elvis Costello that you seem to be blabbering about. The Attractions sold out while Elvis Costello sang on video? Who cares?

Elvis The Concert, stupid.

Sold Out all through Asia, Australasia, Europe, North and South America.

A feat Butt Boy Bieber has not done, and will never do.

Interesting. It is really too soon to tell. King Justin is still young and has gotten his share of vicious put downs because of jealousy. He is living the dream of a famous pop star. If it ends, he'll still have his money. It shouldn't matter to him either way. A dead guy still selling out concerts is kind of sad, don't you think?

Only for people like you, when your LIVE guy can't manage it.

Only Elvis can inspire such devotion, 35 years after death.

Butt Boy will be forgotten in a couple of years, just like Leif Garrett.
