probably not, obviously would've slowed down in the 80s but would've amassed an awesome catalog on top of what they already have. they were getting better with age, would've been awesome to see where they would've gone.

re: Hypothetical discussion: Beatles don't break up


I think the break up was inevitable from the moment the Beatles stopped performing live. They became incredible craftsmen at assembling music in the studio, but they lost the connection with their audience. The creative outburst by John, Paul and George following the break up was them writing songs that they performed for audiences that they were re-connecting with.

If the Beatles had been able to hang together for another couple years improvements in PA systems may have allowed them to begin performing for live audiences again, and maybe they could have flourished. You could see the fun they had playing live together even on th everge of their break up. I think we'd have seen more releases like the White Album. Many obvious solo songs, and a few collaborative efforts.

One thing I'm certain of. If the Beatles had not broken up disco would never have explodewd the way it did. The Beatles would have been much more interested in Reggae, and where the Beatles went music followed.

Personally, I liked most of John's stuff on that album. Yoko, as always, is an abomination and that ruined the album for me.

Ever heard the acoustic version of Watching the Wheels? I first heard it in the movie "Funny People". I think the lyrics are great in relating what John's life had been like in those years.

That being said, if they hadn't broken up, would John have been shot?

Didn't John and Paul almost show up at SNL to play a surprise set in the 1970's? Seems like I saw something about that in a movie once.
