    Who was your favorite Beatle?

    It's nostalgia time: if you were influenced by the music of the Beatles, did you have a favorite and why?

    I was too young and too disinterested when the Beatles were together (I grew up on country music and was far more interested in Buck Owens than the Beatles at the time).  Since I discovered them in my teenage years, however, my favorite Beatle was, and remains, McCartney.

    To me, McCartney's music encompasses something for everyone.  I will be the first to admit had has recorded some bad songs (e.g., "Let 'Em In," the entire "Wings Wild Life" album); however, his good has outweighed his bad, and that has been for fifty years.  He did my favorite Beatles songs:  "For No One," "Yesterday," "Blackbird," "Golden Slumbers," and "I Will."  "Band on the Run" was one of the best albums of the 1970s.  Add to all that the fact that he truly was a model husband for 29 years.  The only time he and Linda were ever separated was the week he spent in jail in Japan for the "pot smuggling" charge.

    Like most, I was totally infatuated with Paul McCartney I suppose because he seemed to be the best looking to me.  I used to love to read the teen magazines with little tidbits about their personal lives. 

    Went to a Beatles concert when I was 14 at Dodger Stadium.  You could barely see them from where I sat - they were very tiny but I was still thrilled.

    John, excellent singer, sense of humour, didn't suffer fools.

    John Lennon. Because he was a genius who created beautiful songs and lyrics.

    I loved the way that Paul McCartney bobbed his head but I think John Lennon wrote much more inspirational and beautiful lyrics.

    Originally Ringo was my favorite (because of his cute boyish looks - really appealed to me as teenager) , then my crush moved onto Paul (same reason). When I got older though and my musical tastes matured, I enjoyed John and Georges music the best. Especially Bangladesh. What a great collaboration that was with George and other musical greats.

    All of the Beatles had a great outlook, where they didn't take on the us vs. them attitude that so many rock bands seem to express.  I like Paul for his songwriting on tracks like For No One, Hey Jude, and I Will, among so many others.
