Yoko Ono has turned her more talented late husband John's work into a multi-billion dollar dynasty, while attempting to groom their son Sean for stardom. (Seriously, if the kid is ever able to cut the Dragon Lady's apron strings, he may have a shot at a decent career of his own.)
Ringo Star, whose contribution to the band could have been phoned in, as usual, just goes along to make everyone else happy while collecting a fat check. He has spent his life milking Beatlemania for all it's worth, despite that fact that any other drummer on the planet could have done a better job. His contribution the the Beatles can be best summed up with the words, "I was there too."
It's really sad that the two most talented band members, John Lennon and George Harrison were taken too soon.
In spite of all this, I'm really excited about the release of the remastered Beatles catalog. The music of the Fab Four was the sound track of my early childhood. I took guitar lessons in my early teens with a Beatles song book.
