Rick, now that you've been nailing some of the big names for interviews, you should really go big, and try to get some time with Sir Paul McCartney! He seems very open to interviews in various formats other than TV(like podcasts) and sounds like an easy, generous person to interview! Would be amazing to see the two of you sit down to have a chat!

@Dave Pollison Yes, but Howard Stern is not a musician which means Rick Beato would ask questions that would not occur to Stern. The interview would take on a completely different flavour and perspective.

Macca won't come here bc as Rick stated, he has to pay for everything out of his pocket. Would it be a great video full of insight and enrichment for millions of Paul's fans and musicians and Beatles people to finally have Paul the bass player, guitarist, songwriter discuss his actual craft? and we've been waiting for that since '69.. that won't happen, because why should Paul do that for free? Or for for what Rick can afford.. It is just not how the world works.. He's not that kind of guy.. or is he..?

The Beatles had 4 rhythm guitarists. They had 3 lead guitarists. They had 3 electric bassists and 4 drummers. They had 4 keyboardists. They had 4 lead singers and 3 harmony singers. They had 4 songwriters. When you look at them as a 29-man musical idea generator and session call list, you can see why the inspiration came so often, why the style was so varied, and why the execution was so consistent and of such high quality. When you look again and see four men behind it all, you also see why this doesn't happen every day.

And an amazing producer and manager. Great management truly is needed when dealing with great artists. The Fab Four was all about the music. Their fame and fortune required some one be at the helm. Terrific comment, Tom Simms

Every other band is in a completely different category for me. I mean, I love Pink Floyd and Rush and LZ, but they’re just bands. Great bands, amazing bands, sure. But the Beatles were “Amadeus.” I went to see Ringo with the All-Starr band a few years ago and the diversity of people there, singing along, cheering and knowing every word was amazing. Every race, every age, every walk of life…at some point the music just grabbed them and never let go.

There are so many artists I adore... Hendrix, Doors, Pink Floyd, Love, Black Sabbath, Bob Marley, ABBA, Cream, Parliament-Funkadelic... the list goes on... but NO ONE compares to The Beatles. From Please Please Me to Let It Be, their music overwhelms me with joy, more than anyone else. I can't tell you how many times I've listened to each and every one of their song's, and yet I'm still floored, and I mean genuinely floored by their talents. I truly feel bad for anyone who doesn't understand them. I don't mean that in a condescending way. I really mean it. They totally blow me away.

My theory as to why Ringo is not only the most underrated drummer in history, but one of the greatest - imagine how the Beatles would have sounded with a more 'technically gifted and flamboyant' drummer. I can guarantee that the magic and 'simplicity' of their entire catalogue would not exist. There will never be another Beatles, and that's exactly how it's supposed to be. From the age of 3-4, listening to the odd song played on local radio, to the age of 47, I still never get bored with them. They literally spun gold from nothing.

I came away from "Get Back" also stunned by their ages, which I'd never thought of before. But beyond the profound talent the Beatles possessed, which is indeed astounding, let's not forget that at their young ages they also dealt with being the most famous 4 people ever, the crush of demands on their time and attention, the business side of being the Beatles, their personal relationships and the painful recent loss of Brian Epstein. The business part alone would overwhelm most 28-year-olds. Truly astounding.

@gmcjetpilot well aren’t you clever. I can’t believe I see people suggesting they didn’t write their own songs. Their every minute in studios was recorded, and has been documented in books and released as bootlegs. They essentially wrote their songs in the studio. Not much room for ghostwriters to be sneaking into the process.

Probably no band was as prolific and as constantly good as The Beatles. They were always in the news as I was growing up in the 60s and mainly because of their music. Song after song after song. And such variety. They were everywhere and nobody had a bad word to say about them. Everybody loved them and no wonder. It's very rare when you get 4 guys in a group who all have charm and wit. I, up till Rick pointed it out thought they were at the top for at least 10 years. Can't believe how much they fitted into the 7 years they were at the top now I look back on it, though it all seemed so natural then.

The 3-part harmonies in - for example -This Boy, Nowhere Man and Because have never been bettered. And they sang the first two live with no appreciable difference in quality. They had the instinctive ability to step towards or away from the mic when a different balance was required. When you consider the technology available to them, it is nothing short of miraculous.

Much of their experience, expertise and refinement of style came from on the job training, playing night after night, set after set, day after day in the bars and cabarets of the grimy port city of Hamburg...

@Har Simaja Most mathematicians and science related people have their greatest inflection points in their early years. The same goes for musicians. We all know of people who are/were musical savants at an early age. What I find interesting about The Beatles is that there were 4 of them creating multiple kinds of music, obviously borrowing from music in the past...and doing it collabotativly. They reconfigured it into something new. What's rare is when people come up with something that's never been done or heard before in specific in an artform.

When Rick said "In My, one of the best songs ever written", I stopped the video to go listen...he isn't wrong! It is just so beautiful. I am so happy I listened to it. I just recently (this past week) got into The Beatles and I'm 37. I am somewhat mad at myself for not actively listening sooner. But also understanding that sometimes things will just come to you naturally.

@mindeloman The Beatles were making music in the early 1960's reflective of the time in which they lived, and the musicians who came before who influenced them. This is how they learned their craft. They were simply better at writing songs than anyone because they had listened to, and recorded, hundreds of other peoples songs.

@mindeloman What do you mean "bubble gum pop?" Within our culture "Pop" means popular. When you say "Bubble gum" do you mean it's meant for children? Too simple minded? The phrase has often been used, but I've never heard it been defined or completely understood it. However, it is often used to dismiss music without offering a clear understanding or explanation. Do you mean the chord progressions are uninteresting or too common/overly used? Too predictable? There is little harmonic development? Rhythmic development or variation? The melody lacks shape? etc?

The fact that their music is still played, discussed and is still massively popular is, in itself incredible. I was fifteen when Beatlemania started and no one played music from previous generations at that time so listening to them now would have been the equivalent of me listening to music from the 1910s then! Just think about that!

2 things make my mind explode (a constant reaction) if I think about them ....1. When I try to conceptualize the distance of 1 light year ... and 2. How talented the Beatles were and how much they accomplished/produced before each turned the age of 30 (blows my mind when I think about either one). All that material in what ... 7 years? When did they officially sign their recording contract? '63? They broke in '70 ... all those wonderful songs in 6-7 years ... all before any of them were 30 years old. It was like Beethoven, Mozart, and Bach all were re-incarnated at the same time and found each other as youngsters in Liverpool, ENG. I have to go lay down again ... my head hurts.

IMO Revolver was a pivotal moment in music for all genres. It opened the door for musicians to go in so many different directions. I feel like without that single album . We would not have so many different bands going to so many branches and directions . I feel like without George Martin as their producer and mentor . He was basically their musical father figure ,mentor , and friend who nurtured them . To become the best they could be as individuals . And then showed them how to mesh their own unique styles to make music that will never be surpassed. Something very special happened when these 4 lads got together. It seemed as if the universe aligned and God smiled on them . Sadly IMO we will never see that happen again. Sure theres better individual musicians. But it was the perfect mix of members with the exact skill set required. At the perfect time in society and their positive messages of love , hope and cultivating ones self to be a better person. As to make the world a better place .Their message rang true with the world in such a way it literally changed it for the better.

I'm 47 years young (almost 48), a guitar player for 27 of those years and that documentary got me to go back and re-listen to many of the Beatles' hits. I'm blown away at the simplicity, yet intricacy of their writing. I'm even talking about many of their first hits; "She Loves You", "Eight Days a Week", Ticket to ride", "I Should Have Known Better", "We Can Work It Out", "All My Loving", "I Wanna Hold Your Hand", .... the list goes on! I intentionally listed a lot of songs for people to see how many hits, you may have forgotten! I had forgotten quite a few of these and there are TONS more hits that they have! These were just the first few years! I'm more of a metal guy and I had never really given the Beatles the musicianship credit they deserved! Learning the progressions of those songs and some of their later stuff blew my mind! I'm a self taught guitar player, can't read sheet music but I can see chords and play along. But the Beatles opened my eyes up to using more of the "7" chords (B7, C7, D7, etc). So many of their songs have these and some other crazy chords that actually sound melodic! For example the song, "From Me to You", there's a progression there (I'm not sure if it's the chorus but I would probably call it a chorus) Gm/C7/F/D7/G/G+! That G+ chord I have never heard in any other song ever but it sounds great at the end of that line! But the most impressive part were the harmonies over those genius progressions. I love a lot of Alice in Chains and I can definitely hear the influence they got from the Beatles with their harmonies (even with AIC being a Eb tuned band). Also, George has some pretty cool little licks he put on songs that get over"looked"(more over heard). The little blues like at the end of each line in "She Loves You" is pretty bad ass for back then! Skid Row, Chains and many other bands use that in some of their songs (especially in Drop "D") or a song like "Monkey Business" by Skid Row uses that little A/D strings (that one use frets 2-3 4) but I definitely think some influence is there. Killswitch Engage, "My Curse" (one of the greatest songs of all time in my opinion) uses those chords but in a slightly different progression but also with a slight blues bend (and tuned in Drop "C") It's the A/D strings- Frets 3 and 5. It's been a while but I think I use the 6th fret too. Anyways, that cool bluesy lick in "She Loves You" is only part of the genius! Using E minor as the starting chord (darker chord) in such an uplifting and upbeat song is pretty interesting! Another thing I noticed was the duality in the main song writing between John and Paul! "We Can Work it Out" is a great example of this! Intro and verses (upbeat and jingly chords) D/C/G/D/G/A. Then John's part, Chorus: Bm/A/G/F#7 (dark lyrics and progression). Put them together and you have an amazing song! I know it was long winded but I've been really geeking out on these songs on the acoustic. PS- Ringo is a much better drummer than I thought he was!

What I came away with was how insanely talented Paul McCartney is. He was a crazy writer and a great musician on every instrument and I’m sure it was very intimidating for the other musicians especially George to be in a band with him. But to Paul’s credit I think he understood that and he always walked a line and he also respected the abilities of the other musicians. I believe he understood that what came out from all of them together was very special and completely different than what would come out of just him Or any of the others solo. Conversely I believe John and Paul realized that as well. Just a crazy freak occurrence that they grew up together and came together in a confluence of talent that will never be seen again.

@Peter H seems like you mean that detrimentally. Nothing bad about being the best pop band of all time. Most people live to go out with friends and loved ones for a dance or to begin new relationships at a dance. Beatles were toughest raw punk group in Hamburg, then greatest dance band in Liverpool, then best boy band pop group, then most innovative force in new era of pop as serious music. Maybe you don't dance and have pure unadulterated fun. Silly love songs demonstrated maturity with a young family and growing out of self-indulgent teenage angst

Nowadays or even before, somebody in a band with that much talent would have left and gone solo because his ego would not have allowed him to stay. I.E. I'm the talented one, I'm the star and I don't need all the hassle of being in a band like this. But Paul loved the Beatles and loved being in the band. Glad this documentary showed everything in context and not the watered down, sensationalised version that was previously released.

@odorico leal I agree 100% with your choices on those 2 albums for John / Paul and George, but I respectfully disagree that the rest of there solo stuff was a bunch of filler with a few good tracks. Especially for McCartney. Walls and Bridges and Double Fantasy were very good albums. George Harrison (Album) and Cloud Nine were very good George solo Albums. And Paul’s Venus and Mars, Tug o War, And Flaming Pie were excellent. 👍

I'm also a massive Beatles fan Rick. A child of the 60's, it isn't merely that I grew up with the Beatles and have a subjective bias. It's that the melodies, harmonies, subject matter and words still blows my mind all these decades later. Looking back and forward, I am lucky to have been there when they happened. Man. I love rock and roll, but I struggle to avoid Beatles songs dominating my guitar practice.

@51MontyPython They were the first songs recorded for Sgt Peppers but the Beatles were taking so long to complete the album, EMI wanted an immediate single - so George Martin gave them the double A side Strawberry Fields / Penny Lane as singles, then adhered to the policy at the time, to not put singles on albums. Martin regarded it as his biggest mistake of his career with the Beatles. They later put the two songs on the Magical Mystery Tour album just to make up the numbers. To be honest - they sit pretty well on that album - or maybe we just all grew up getting used to that.

“Yesterday and Today” was actually a U.S release since Capitol records wanted to release something ASAP in the U.S. before “Revolver”, which is why “Yesterday and Today “ album had songs from “rubber soul” and singles like “day tripper”. Fun Fact: The U.S. release of “Revolver” doesn’t have “I’m only sleeping” nor “And Your Bird Can Sing” since those were added on “Yesterday and Today” prior to their “Revolver” release ..

The Beatles were such a huge part of my musical background . In 1969 I was 13 years old and learning how to play the guitar and spending hours upon hours learning Beatles songs. I feel like this band is so much a part of me that it is almost part of my DNA. When I watched Get Back It was like I was in a time warp re-experiencing all of those high school memories. I was absolutely blown away watching the creation and evolution of these songs . Thank You for sharing your thoughts and comments about the Beatles Get Back Documentary .

If you’re a bassist, you probably know exactly how much more effort it takes to properly figure out a McCartney bass line as opposed to the usual fare in pop and rock music. Paul has a wonderfully sophisticated musical brain, so much so that it can even sometimes fly under the radar amid the more accessible tunefulness, so to speak.

Great piece Rick, thank you for delving into these guys' amazing legacy. My obsessive love of music of all types/genres began when I heard the Beatles' Twist and Shout blaring out of a loudspeaker while living in Germany on an Air Force Base in 1963. Loved every record they put out and, while not truly being a musician (just a hack guitarist), have always felt that they were brilliant as songwriters and musicians and constantly groundbreaking throughout their career together. Opened the door to much in music that followed that I love. Too many favorite songs to have a favorite song; however, Abbey Road in its totality is an album that I will listen to until the end of my days.

You know what’s crazy… I wanted to take music theory in high school, but the class always booked up so quick, mainly because of our teacher, but also because it was one of the few music classes in our school. So I had to learn it on my own. Which is great, and a disadvantage simultaneously. But it helped me to really understand music on my own. And I had to pay attention to not just guitar, which I had transitioned to from drums, horns, vocals, and bass, but the entire composition of music. I had to force myself to be aware of how compositionally, if that’s a word, haha, how music comes together. And I feel I became a better composer of songs, and music, altogether. And I feel I had always had that intuition. From drums to guitar, I envisioned how bass, and other instruments could be incorporated into a song to really bring a song to its full potential. I mainly played guitar and vocals, but to envision the entire song with different instruments, made me appreciate the simple complexity, and the complex simplicity of song writing. My only regret was not figuring out how to translate that into a career. My family was not musically inclined, and discouraged musical careers, as they found it impractical. Boy have I regretted trying to prove them wrong. But regretted more, the love of a musical career, for the simply complicated love of music. Luckily, it’s not too late, lol. Thank you Rick. You inspire me.

George got such a raw deal. I can't believe John and Paul heard "All Things Must Pass" and decided to revisit the songs they wrote as teenagers, instead. Also look how generous George was with Ringo to help him turn the idea for "Octopus's Garden" into a song. The Beatles ending was the best thing that could have happened for him. George forever!

I have said this before. Chord progressions, melodies, lyrics, playing and general musicality of songs such as "Michelle" and "Yesterday" (as an example). A 50 year old veteran of musical song writing would be proud of their work and skill with just those two songs alone if they had written them. Paul was like a kid at around 20years old when he wrote them. What were any of us doing at that age?

Your comments and insights about the Get Back documentary and the Beatles in general are one of the reasons why we love you Rick! Their deeply intuitive knowledge of music from their time in Hamburg and learning so many covers, their insanely creative output in the mid-60j's, their unique brilliant vocal harmonies, etc. Many of their individual songs have given birth to entire genres of music. The Beatles, as far as their impact on the entire world, both musically and socially, are the greatest band of all time, no other band has affected and influenced more people on the planet than The Beatles. Hundreds of years from now, when people are studying the music of the past, The Beatles will be looked back on as the Bach of modern pop/rock music, just as we look back on Bach as one of the masters from the past.

My thoughts on what made The Beatles such good writers? All those years in Hamburg having to play hours and hours of cover versions from the 30’s, 40’s and 50’s. All of those different chordal ideas, melodic ideas. What they developed was their own personal arsenal of ‘ right ‘ chords, of interesting progressions and melodies that they could draw from - not steal. Individually they were supremely talented and they did that thing that all highly skilled people - artists, athletes, whatever did - they made it look easy. It’s only when you deconstruct their songs do you get to see the work. The ideas in motion. They were four true wizards - and not four little men hiding behind a curtain operating levers.

Someone said (forget who) that everyone is born with a song (or something like that). When you listen to Harrison's 'I Need You' from 'Help!' which was a relatively early song in George's writing career, you can hear musical composition which he will use during his whole later solo career. George, like the other two Beatles came up with their own musical signatures, and they used them in creative ways in all of their best songs. But really you don't necessarily hear it unless your looking for them. For those writers who realize their gift, take journeys down a musical river. The journey will take them in and out of tributaries as they traverse their river. The more they do this the more the mind creates less resistance to the flow of the river as you travel down stream. One day you will have traveled all of the possible routes and by then all of the music will have come before.

I really like the American "Rubber Soul", it starts with "I've Just Seen a Face" and replaces "What Goes on" with "It's Only Love". The album flows much better than the UK version, although it omits "Nowhere Man" and "If I Needed Someone". BTW, "She Said" is sans Paul on both harmony vocals and any instruments. Conversely, Paul's guitar solo on "Taxman" is legendary, as are his vocals and rhythm guitar work on "Helter Skelter".

Gawd, George was only 25!? He speaks and acts like a man with the wisdom and experience of someone twice that age! Curiously enough my favourite two moments out of all those hours of footage were both ‘George’ moments *spoiler alert* First, when Ringo’s bashing around the first verse of ‘Octopus’s Garden’. George, having spent the past two weeks struggling to get anyone to take his songs seriously, wastes no time in helping him flesh out the composition further. Both of them on the piano, trying all manner of chord progressions, was just a sweet moment. The second was of course George defiantly switching the amps back on after Mal flicked them off under orders from the police. 100% fearless badass!

Love your videos, Rick, and really appreciate your enthusiasm for the Beatles. I always tell my students, "You had to be there to understand it." Yes, their music and influence lives on in so many ways, but this generation is blissfully unaware of it. They came up with so many "firsts" that I won't even begin to list them, since anyone on this page is already in the know. I'm really thankful to have been in the "Beatlemania" generation, joining 73 million other Americans who were captivated by their initial Ed Sullivan appearance. The Beatles are the ones who influenced me musically more than anyone else, and I'm currently working on my seventh CD! I always smile when someone tells me they can hear the Fab Four influence in one of my songs. I've learned and been impacted by Dylan, Hendrix, CCR, the Hollies, Clapton, and many, many more ... but John, Paul, George and Ringo are the epicenter of my musical career.

One thing I want to add is that this documentary is completely congruent with all that they said on later years, specially Paul. When so much has being speculated about Paul’s attitude towards Yoko, we can see him defending her, and saying it was not her fault. Yes, we see Paul and John being a little rude and pushy with George but then we hear them recognizing their mistakes and understanding George needed more respect. Paul said in Stephen Colbert’s show that during the 70s he questioned himself because media almost convinced him that he was the villain. Now we can see the truth. There’s no villain. There never was. Only differences. The guys cared about each other like brothers.

@Thomas Watkins How can you talk about being “accurate” when there’s actual footage? Michael Lindsay-Hogg Let It Be lasts 1.21 hours Peter Jackson’s Get Back has 7.48 hours. Lindsey-Hogg clearly cut hours and hours of footage and kept the most boring, dull and depressing parts. If that’s what you think was real, fine. But I think Jackson’s version is more objective. It was clear for many they were not having a good time in Twickenham studios, the place they disliked the most, and the place Hogg insisted in filming. Their mood changed drastically when they got back at Apple Studios. Also, there were obvious conflicts and strong discussions they were having, and Jackson didn’t hide them. Perhaps I’m wrong but I think Hogg felt left out and in less control in Apple studios, since it was a smaller place, less cinematic.

The bottom line is this version is simply trying to paint the Beatles as the media believes they should be. A fun, poppy band that were never at odds. The rumor is the line “she’s waiting for me” in McCartney’s Too Many People was a reference to Paul having a moment with Cynthia Lennon or Yoko. To which John responded with “How do you sleep”. The reality isn’t that everything was peaceful. They merely picked the happy moments from hundreds of hours. It’s a darn stupid idea, as I see it. The original was more accurate as the group would break up soon after with. George Martin only offering to return if they’d do it “the old way” no distractions. Frankly, we are this sad as a culture these days. We can’t even accept 4 men from 60 years ago were at odds with one another after a lifetime of hysteria in under a decade. My advice? LET IT BE. They came, they went, we loved, it was just over.

So, it´s sad that so many think that what is heard in cd was how the Beatles sound, just sad , some monthes ago i remenber to listen to some of their songs ,and when playing a Lp i ended up listening not only to the song that i wanted to hear but all the album ,i ended up listening to the white album from one end to the other, then Revolver then Rubber Soul and maybe the best of their albums Abbey Road, when i9 started i was thinking that i would listen to 6 songs but the sound is so good that i heard the entire albums but when i put the cd playing after listening to the records, it doesn´t sound like the Beatles at all, regards

And you hear him tell John that he had so many songs that the had written that he was interested in maybe putting out his own album without or possibly including sone of the others.( Pt. 3 and ergo All Things Must Pass). John lets him know that it was a good idea and he supported him fully. As he does when he basically tells Paul that his overbearing ego was hurting George and thus the rest of the band. If not for John, Paul might have been selling fruit in the market down the street. Through clever editing you can see how what the person in control wants you to believe( Pay heed oh you Millennials and friends... FAKE NEWS!) I'm sure Sir Paul got quite the earful at home. " How come you don't let me caterwaul at the studio like Yoko? Thank god! Or maybe they didn't air it.

@Curbozer Boomer From what I've seen in 60 years is that every artist has their peak creative period, and that may last only 5 or 10 years or so. Very few are consistently great over a long period. The Beatles had - what - seven incredible years where they created all of that music? And ALL artists produce crap now and then - all musicians, movie directors, actors, painters. The BEST movie directors have maybe three mediocre or BAD movies as great ones. As Billy Joel said, "I've ROOMS full of songs you'll never hear." Even scientists - usually produce their best work in their 20's. (look at Einstein). But we remember the great ones.
