It Was 40 Years* Ago Today...
Forty years ago today, Paul McCartney left The Beatles. All four formerly Fab members achieved success as solo artists, but never reached anywhere near the heights they did as a group.
I always say The Beatles are the greatest rock band in history. Not only because I love them. Their sound influenced a generation and still influence musicians to this day. All four can stand on their own as great musicians.
Gossip about possible collaborations between Paul and Ringo is still greeted with breathless anticipation.
There will never be another band anywhere near their level of impact.
*Actually 39. But I was going for a Sgt. Pepper reference.
