Many of us grew up listening to the beatles so we were witnesses to their breakup and how it shocked the world. It has been 50 years since their break up and Rolling Stone Magazine recently featured a fantastic article on their break up and why their music still matters after 50 years!
Here’s a snippet from the article…
“…The world has spent 50 years collecting the clichéd narratives: John and Paul were fighting, Paul and Yoko were fighting, John and Yoko became junkies, the moneymen came between them, the drugs came between them, the wives came between them, all things must pass, the dream is over.
But as with most Beatles stories, the truth is a lot more complicated when you look closely. In the end, it’s really a story about four friends trying to hold on to one another in dark and confusing times — searching for a way to shine on till tomorrow. Like everybody else, John, Paul, George, and Ringo witnessed the end of the Beatles with shock and disbelief, no idea how to apply the brakes. None of them really imagined this was the end.
