Hey! The trousers was my little nod to the greatest band in the world: The Rutles!
I was being a smarta**.
Rest in Peace, dear Brian.
Gone so long now.

I still believe that it is fate that made them the Beatles.

There's no doubt, Kite. God meant for it to happen, and it did. It was meant to be an important part in history. And it is.

They were four pieces of an apple... without one, wouldn't be an entire apple. They were an unity, an entity, without any of them wouldn't be the same, even with a super-musician like Hendrix, Clapton, Townshend, Moon, G.Baker or anyone else replacing George or Ringo...

Peace.

Once in 80s was formed a super-group with ex-band formers like Steve Howe(Yes), Carl Palmer(EL&P), John Wetton(King Crimson) and Geoffrey Downes(The Buggles) called ASIA but though they were excellent musicians and people thought they would have an awesome success they well failured, it's true that they had some succesful songs, but the band life was very short because they didn't have an unity, a harmony and they weren't tuned each other.

Peace.

After good songs, the most important thing about any band is chemistry - they have to really fit together with each other and stand out as different at the same time . . . if that makes sense . . .

I think mr. kite makes a very good point about the "fate" thing.
It must have been.
John and Paul certainly had tremendous determination or ambition to "get out of Liverpool". To succeed.
They pushed. Tried to hard to learn their craft. Paul tells the story of getting on the bus to go across town to learn B7.
But fate clearly ties it all together.
I read Heather Mills McCartney's book, Out On A Limb, and she very much believes in fate.

I mean, how can you NOT believe in "fate?" Everything happens for a reason. What's gonna happen is gonna happen.
