Have we time warped back to the 70s? Did everyone get crack in their Christmas stockings?

I know that when I say this, I may be stepping on pins and needles but I don't like all these people slagging her for breaking up the Beatles.

I have a feeling Linda McCartney had more to do with the Beatles breaking up than Yoko did.

It doesn't really matter. She seems like a generally unlikable person anyway.

I got gift cards. Sucks. Can't buy drugs with gift cards.

I mean if I was John and you were Yoko I would gladly give up musical genius, just to have you as my very own personal Venus.

Please.

Lennon wanted out as far back as '65 -- he couldn't stand the touring, the crowds, the screams. HELP! was literally a cry for help. Yoko was the first person to tell him what he wanted to hear: "You don't have to do this."

But the band was pretty much burned out by the White Album (a schizophrenic solo album of each member, technically) and didn't even record together for Abbey Road or Let it Be... the nails were on the coffin long before then. Everything was too much. They wanted to slow down, have families, do other things -- fairly normal for anyone moving into their thirties.

No single person is responsible. They had enough. They wanted to move on -- that's life. What's wrong with that?

Yup. And a really crappy artist as well.

Yeah, no.

The whole point of the "Let It Be/Get Back" sessions was to "get back" to recording together as a 4-piece, like they did on their first few albums. Of course, it didn't help when Paul started bossing everyone around, which is why George told him to fark off at one point, and eventually quit the band for a few weeks. They were in the studio together all day long, and just got sick of each other.

Well, the Beatles certainly had nothing to do with it.
