And then there was one.


You've probably seen this one, but I couldn't pass it up. George, 14. John, 16. Paul, 15. Ringo, somewhere dreaming about girls who won't give him the time of day. None of them with any clue yet that they'll change the world.

Ringo married a Bond girl. So he didn't do so bad, did he? Plus he's, ya know, alive.

I like Ringo. Hell, I like him better than Paul. I just mean he's not in this photo.

I have seen this photo. I like it too. I am not a Paul fan myself. I dug George and John. If you're not snide, what fun are you?

B.E. Earl said...

Gotcha. I like him better than Paul too. Gia's uncle knows him professionally (they are both drummers), and says he is a great guy too.

SB: my thoughts exactly.

BE: I totally believe that.

I don't understand the title. Did someone die?

downtown guy said...

Yeah, George and John. And since Paul's the only other Beatle in this picture, he's the one I was mentioning.

(Ringo didn't join them until '62, 4 years after this was taken.)

Ringo was actually a very-well known and successful drummer before he joined the Beatles. I love Ringo. He is joyful, it seems to me.

downtown guy said...

Yep, he was always my second favorite. Plus, I enjoy his acting. The Magic Christian was a damn good movie, really.

Ms. Moon said...

It was a wonderful movie!

They were so fresh faced and cute.
I agree about Ringo's acting. He was always the star of those movies.
