    A lovely warm spiritual man, as George said himself, he was a contradiction.

    Shocked and hurt by what you say here Timmy, in all sorts of ways the Beatles had a bigger positive impact on my life, and many others around the World, than anything I can think of, could you give some sort of explanation as to why you think they were a 'bad bunch'.

    Macca's post-Beatles stuff is awful. Ringo was just along for the ride, Lennon was a hypocritical wife beater who neglected his son, Julian, & was an anti-semite. Harrison was the most talented.

    Macca did very well thank you!

    So they asked Ringo along for the ride, if someone said, `Timmy Lea, come with us, you`ll be a millionaire and one of the most famous men in the world within 5 years`, Would Timmy Lea say no?

    George's contribution to British film was exceptional: Life of Brian, The Long Good Friday, Withnail & I...

    I suppose Lennon did have what today they call baggage but he had a difficult upbringing. I still think it's absurd to call them a bad bunch, McCartney said they didn't become a decent group until Ringo joined them and he and Lennon were exceptional songwriters. I don't think Lennon's supposed anti-semitism was ever proven. Most of the music critics rate them as the greatest group or popular music act of all time.

    I've always loved there music which my elder sister introduced me too at an early age...Having been to the Cavern for the first time only very recently...I very much enjoyed the duo who were playing excellent versions of Beatles hits during the evening.

    Wrong on almost every count. In the first half of the 70s Macca (with Wings) released some great stuff. Band on the Run is still easily the best solo album by an ex-Beatle. Ringo's influence on the Beatles is well documented - they just wouldn't have been as good without him (true, his solo stuff is awful but he narrated Thomas the Tank Engine so it's a score-draw). Lennon had some pretty major faults but some pretty major plus-points too. He was a troubled, ambiguous man - anyway, don't tell me you buy into all this "he's supposed to be a role model" crap? And George was by no means the saint he's sometimes made out to be. He had a spiritual side, but he was also confused - this is the guy who wrote a song disparaging the materialism of the modern world AND a song complaining about the taxes he had to pay, both on the same album! Make your mind up, George!

    But none of that really matters, because the Beatles produced a skip-load of great music. Or are you so blinkered that you only like stuff based on the ideology of its authors?

    No way, George Harrison has released the best solo stuff. Hopefully this doc will elevate his position to greatest ever Beetle!
