After The Beatles split and their solo careers started how much did the subsequent legal issues hinder their new careers?. Were interviewers just interested in gossip or was their early solo work taken seriously. Also who was first to get their solo work out there. I get the impression it was a massive effort by all of them to start again.
Well, Paul's first solo album came out at about the time he announced he was leaving the Beatles and that the group was finished. This was the spring of 1970. Can't remember the timeline for Ringo's solo work because his first two albums were covers of country music and old standards. John and George released their albums later in 1970. It was no earlier than 1971 when Ringo had radio hits. If I remember correctly.
Of course, there were those avant-garde John and Yoke albums released, beginning in 1968.
Don't remember too much about interviewers asking about the legal wrangling.
It would be interesting to see what partnership agreements or corporations were formed by the various rock groups. Had anyone here ever studied partnership accounting? A person who wants in bad enough may contribute , say, 40% of the assets to have, say, 25% of the partnership and take 1/4 of the profits.
You look at the Beatles, the Rolling Stones, the Eagles, and other groups and wonder who is/was getting what.
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
