Sandinista! is the best Clash record and George is my favorite Beatle by a country mile.

ha! that made me laugh out loud. my assistant is looling at me like i'm nuts.

speaking of which - if you are asking my favorite in terms of personality. but i am assuming this is musically based - so i will go with george. and sandanista sucks. the clash didn't make a good record after give em enough rope.

paul and john cancel each other out, leaving george...who wrote the best songs, with the exception of rain, paperback writer, bulldog, and a few others.

taxman, savoy truffle (i think that was george), flying...those are my faves.

For the record, "Most talented Beatle" obviously would have prompted a different response.

Please note, the poll is "Who Was the Most Fab," not "Who Had the Back-Handed Good Fortune to Have Been Assassinated thus Sparing Us All 3 Decades of Mediocre Solo Records."

Seriously, can you imagine what John's synth-pop record circa 1983 produced by Trevor Horn would have sounded like? Or his grunge record circa 1995 with Butch Vig behind the board?

I agree about Sandinista! and sometimes I'm tempted to vote for George, but the real answer for me is always John. I'm not a Paul hater, though. Especially post-Revolver and maybe even before that, he was basically the band leader (as John was losing interest/focus; before that, I'd argue that it was John's band) and was a great bass player and songwriter in the Beatles days. Not so much afterwards, though, with some notable exceptions of course (IMO)...George is probably my favorite solo Beatle for All Things Must Pass alone, though.

He'd certainly be in the running, though I'm not aware of any great recordings he made with any other band.

Paul. The George oeuvre, much like Sandinista, is a handful of great songs in a sea of half-baked crap.

Fist of all, this is a poll concerning your favorite Beatle, not the most talented one. Secondly, the biggest pieces of shit in the Beatles catalog were all written by Paul.

Probably better than "Ebony & Ivory".......and 99% of the other crap Paul has done since 1970. With the exception of "Say,Say,Say" of course.... Rolling Eyes



Yes, my answer is John. But, "All Things Must Pass" is the best solo album by any of them with "Plastic Ono Band" a (very)close second...

1) My answer is the same to both questions
2) I would easily include all of George's sitar excursions in any list of shittiest tunes in the Beatles catalog.

I'd listen to Revolution 9 all day long if it spared me from having to hear some of that proto-Wings late period Paul twaddle.

Speaking of Paul, has anyone heard the new record? The song in the commercial is surprisingly good.

And to think that I fully agreed with your earlier post on their respective solo careers. I really hope you're kidding here. I'm not saying it's my favorite track by them or anything, but I love how much controversy it caused for what's a Stockhausen-esque tape manipulation that goes back (at least in style and theory) to avant garde music of the '20s.

There's a nice interview with him in the new Mojo talking about his affinity for songwriters like Irving Berlin, Frank Loesser, Hoagy Carmichael, etc. He talks about his respect for structure and craft when it comes to pop songs and it makes perfect sense to me. One of the big reasons (maybe the big reason) I prefer Paul to John is that I also find tremendous satisfaction in simple pop songs cleverly composed and neatly put together. I don't prize lyrical depth or sonic innovation. Give me the perfect 3 minute pop song and I'm quite content. And that's all I have to say on the whole John vs. Paul thing. For now.

Or his Rick Rubin-produced record from sometime in the last 10 years where they would try to recreate the sound of Revolver.

hahaha. I actually can see that even more than I can see the Butch Vig. But for better or worse, we will never know if this is the case. So yeah, I guess it is a little unfair to judge the guys based on their post Beatles output since John's life ended much too early, but it is what it is. Just going off Beatles stuff, while I love Paul and do agree with scannest re: the pop song I still like John best but Paul is a close second followed by George.

Rick Rubin would give him an acoustic gtr. & have him do some duets of Revolver-era stuff.......

I have to agree with scannest here. Now if you would've said "Taxman" or "Isn't It a Pity" or "Think for Yourself" or "Love You To" or "I Want to Tell You" or "My Sweet Lord", there would at least be a debate (too many great Beatles-era Macca songs for me to really agree, though).

Paul was great. He wrote some of my favorite Beatles songs, but he also wrote the only Beatles songs that I kind of hate. I chose George because I'm a guitarist and my favorite part of most Beatles songs is his playing. Plus, he seems like the least assholish of the bunch.

I can tolerate the treacly stuff he wrote in the '60s even though I know that's the roots of some of the later stuff Andrew pointed out.

Haven't even heard of it. Of course, my interest is piqued now.

And to think that I fully agreed with your earlier post on their respective solo careers. I really hope you're kidding here.





Yes. Do you like John & Yoko's "The Wedding Album" also?

I'll stand by my statement. Though Paul's bass line is fantastic in Something.

I have to say that the guitar parts that people think that they like George for...some are not actually George playing them.

And that George Documentary is fantastic....but I didn't get that he was an asshole out of it...a bit isolated and dark sometimes...but in the end he was shinning much brighter than John or Paul.

George financed Monty Python and the Holy Grail. How could he possibly not be the fabbest?

Not so much (never heard it knowingly, actually) but I like Yoko's Plastic Ono Band album.

For the record, "Most talented Beatle" obviously would have prompted a different response.


that would have been George Martin


He'd certainly be in the running, though I'm not aware of any great recordings he made with any other band.

John is my favorite Beatle. I dont know why, just he was always my favorite as a kid etc.
Any of those guys solo is not the Beatles. Fact.

Take Paul: no doubt he's super talented, but solo, he gets to be the boss, which allows his cheesy side free reign.

Or John: In the Beatles he is just full of interesting ideas, but man, he was REALLY slumming it musically with Oko's friends in NYC. They were just plain awful.

George: was overlooked a lot I think Beatles-wise. I would rather listen to Traveling Wilburys any day over any of the other post-Beatles projects the others did.

Ringo was the drummer, the heart of the band, if you will. Irreplaceable. They would have gotten nowhere if Pete Best stayed in the band.

I've always thought The Traveling Wiburys sounded a lot like ELO, so I've always assumed Jeff Lynne was the dominant influence in that group.
