    There will never be a period in music history like this ever again. I am glad It occurred in my lifetime. Real vocals no pitch perfection or auto tune, just pure talent.
    Can’t wait to experience the feeling of that time once more!

    I have listened to the Beatles’ song catalogue over and over again for years now. Nobody comes close to them for their versatility, inventiveness, raw creative energy and sheer joy. So many styles, so many melodies, so many feelings and ideas.

    Can’t wait. Played Beatles songs in 1993-4. At age 15 our group “The Astrolites” started playing 2 gigs a month doing Beatlemania tunes. What a ride. Kids went nuts at both venues. Now 75 and still love Beatles music and have all albums on CDs. Thanks guys, nice to Be a part of history.

    This period for the band is so muddled in stuff that is not about the music they were doing. So many distractions. It had to be very hard. It’s amazing the music they came up with. The original ‘Get Back’ concept and getting themselves ready to play live with new songs in a month is wild….and they did it!

    Though I get so tired of people saying the music of this or that time was the best or that today’s music categorically stinks, I will say that the Beatles were a magical moment, a meeting of four geniuses nearly perfectly fitted to one another to produce greatness at a time of phenomenal opportunity for change and creation, a time primed for an explosive expansion of the musical universe. They were critical to bursting open a musical pressure cooker.
    Also, this film is gonna freakin rock!

    I ‘ve been a fan since 1964. They rescued America from the assassination of JFK. They brought the greatest music ever and it still permeates genius into today’s creative musical minds of all bands. Tho with 2 musical geniuss gone the remaining 2 keep showing the world they still have what it take to be creative and giving influence to the world. Rock and Roll will always live long after we as musicians are long gone to play with the greatest musical rock band up stairs with the great ones who have paved the way,

    There is simply nothing contrived about the Beatles. They let their artistry in many regards, style fashion, vernacular, and yes, incredible music, lead the way.
