There's a whole bunch we could classify as the 5th Beatle. Some that come to mind are: Stu Sutcliffe, Pete Best, Andy White, Jimmy Nichol, Klaus Voorman, Billy Preston and Mal Evans. We should make a list and vote.

The story of how women shaped the Beatles got more interesting, as Paul McCartney recently told the world “Yoko Ono” did not break up the Beatles. McCartney said “The Beatles” broke the band up and if John didn’t leave, he couldn’t create such poetry like “Imagine.” John Lennon married Yoko Ono in 1969, after getting a divorce from his first wife Cynthia Powell. As Cynthia would say, she came home from a trip to Greece in 1968 to find Yoko Ono in her home. Cynthia accused John of abandoning his first child “Julian.” In a 2005 interview, Cynthia told an interviewer that Paul McCartney saved her when he wrote “Hey Jude” for Julian. “If I would never see (McCartney) again, I won’t forget it.”
Yoko Ono was a Japanese artist who met John Lennon at a London art gallery in 1966. She was a reputable avant-garde artist. When the two met, she had never heard of the Beatles, but sparks flew fast and furious. The two married months after his divorce was official in 1969. No one can deny that Yoko had a tremendous impact on John and his musical career, but some Beatles’ fans loathe her. Lennon admitted to beating women prior to meeting Yoko and that Yoko changed him. They had a son together in 1968, and were married for 11 years before Lennon was gunned down outside their New York City apartment in 1980. Still, it is one of the greatest love stories, as John said, “There is no reason why I would want to live without Yoko.”

Actually Yoko had a miscarriage in 1968, Sean was born in 1975. Here we forgot Yoko's 82nd birthday last Wed. A little present to her fans. A thirty year old song.
Fiendish Thingy: Thanks Bobber. I'm good thanks. Quiet on here for the last few months. I see Al has gone all 'Facebook' and is attracting new members. No bad thing. Are you going to the annual Beatleweek in Liverpool this year? Not long now 10 weeks or so. See you there?

Bobber: Not sure. It's an expensive trip for me plus I'm starting a new job around that time.

Amadeus: Hey all. Not been frequenting here very much lately. Between burying people, helping sick people and feeling crap myself, Me and Mrs. A. have been weighed under. Hoping to get a bit more out of that rut so I can focus back on the fun things I used to focus
