A thread for the solo careers of the boys from Liverpool.

Let's start off with Richard Starkey--also known as Ringo Starr. The dust had hardly settled when Ringo began a successful solo career. In 1972, he released this song, originally done by rock-a-billy singer Johnny Burnette in 1960:



Happy birthday to Ritchie, who turned 75 just the other day.

My fave has always been George.

I know you're in the sun
I know you're close to ev'ryone
At times it's like you don't have a hold on me

I see you in the love
I see you in the moon above
But I want to know that you're not lost inside of me

You know I need you
You know I love you
If I'm not with you
I'm not so much of a man
I'm like a fish on the sand

You call me in the night (you call me in the night)
And hide behind the daylight
You're blowing like a wind, you don't let me see

You know I feel a pain (you know I feel a pain)
I'm tired of playing games with you
Though there's nothing else I want that would set me free

You know I love you
You know I need you
If I can't be with you
I'm not so much of a man
I'm a fish on the sand

No use to no one else, they've all dried up
Watching all our lives go by
I can't believe you'd want to see me crying

I hold you in my heart (hold you in my heart)
I know that you're a part of me
But it's a must to know that you love me too

I look you in the eye (look you in the eye)
You're swimming by my teardrops
But I want to know for sure that you'll let me see

You know I want you
You know I need you
If I'm not with you
I'm not so much of a man
I'm like a fish on the sand

You know I need you
You know I love you
If I'm not with you
I'm not so much of a man
I'm a fish on the sand

Not so much of a man
More a fish on the sand

I thought about posting "Band on the Run," but EB beat me to it. I'm with Jessalonika, i like George's solo work. Here's his 1987 song evocative of their origins, with a little help from his friend Ritchie (which i've posted at this site before):

My favorite Lennon album is Rock and Roll, recorded in 1973, and embroiled in more than one copyright suit, it did not come out until 1975. Here he does Ben E. King's classic hit, "Stand by Me."

Region, i've always liked that song, especially since my honest to Dog, real first name is Albert--but don't tell anyone that, 'K?

John was my favorite, when they were a group and after. Has nothing to do with how he died. I just like his music and how his mind worked.

The one got George sued for plagiarism. Personally, I think too much was made over it, as both songs were unrelated topic oriented and both are wonderful songs.

Paul and Linda McCartney got into large scale productions, such as the 1973 hit "Live and Let Die," for the James Bond motion picture of the same name. It was produced by George Martin, who had produced the Beatles, and was the most successful song from a B0nd picture to that point, hitting no. 2 on the U.S. charts.

The Jam never got sued for this, although Paul Weller admitted to listening to Revolver while working on the album. I think this is more like Taxman than My Sweet Lord is like He's So Fine.

This thread is for music by the former members of the Beatles.

John Lennon got off to a quick start, with an album and singles in 1970. This one has a darker tone.

Also from Harrison's Cloud Nine is this cover of the 1962 Ray James song, "Got my mind set on you." (I like the video.)
