Which of the four Beattles do you consider to be the best? My favorite Beattle is Ringo Starr, although John Lennon exceeded Ringo post Beattle era. And then after Lennon's death, I became very interested in Paul McCartney's music. How about you?

I guess my favorite beattle is Paul McCarney. He is still making music to date. He seems like an ok guy from the interviews I have seen. Besides he is still alive. Paul can't all be bad after all her was knighted, I think. The queen likes him so he can't be bad. I just like the old Beattles music not so much the new stuff any of them did after the break up.

I always like Paul McCartney. He seemed to be the only Beatle to really continue with his music. Ringo has also but it seems that Paul is forever in the news. I am not sure if Lennon would have remained in the forefront like Paul has.

At different times in my life I liked different Beatles for different reasons. When I was young I fell for Paul McCartney, he had interesting eyes, a soft sweet voice. The songs he wrote were mostly bubble gum pop at that time. Life was simple and my music taste was too. As I reached my teen years it was all about John Lennon. The rebellion and all. His songs spoke to me. I heard his message of Peace in the later years and was heartbroken when he was murdered. I remember when Ringo's album Stop and smell the roses came out. Then he was in that movie Caveman, but shortly my fascination with him waned. I guess I've never been a real big drummer fan. Except for Keith Moon but that is a different story. There was a lot of great George Harrison songs over the years but he was never a great influence on my life. I think it is hard to pick a favorite since they all had such good qualities. I am kinda glad they broke up when they did so they will always be young in our hearts as the Beatles and they had nothing but quality recordings. As an adult I admit I think John Lennon influenced me most and therefor is my favorite...I think.

i love John Lennons music but he was a tortured soul. Paul also had his own battles to fight, but i would have loved to have seen what john would have done in the ensuing 20 years blessed be

I did not really care for the music of them as single artists. They were so much better all together. But if I had to choose one it would be John Lennon, his music always had a lot of meaning behind it.

This is a hard one for me to make a choice here. I think to be honest I'd have to definately say it is a tie between John Lennon and Sir Paul. I love Lennon's Imagine album but I equally love almost everything from Paul McCartney and Wings.

I'm still a big John Lennon fan and not post Beatlers but during Beatles. The White Album had the best selection of what I would call post 60's genre, non Elvis sounding music. I guess you could call it Rock and some Folk music mixed with a melodic theme such as in 'honey pie' that sounds almost 1920's. This album also has 'Helter Skelter' on it. The song that became famous because of the Charles Manson case, but then has 'Rocky Racoon' which is one of my fav's and is more of a hard hitting country, folk, rock song. I actually liked tha fact that John and Paul worked so well together on a lot of those songs so I may just have to change that to two Beatles I liked the most.

i like them the best together as the Beatles. If having to choose one i'd be very boring and go for John lennon. I like his music the best.

When I first learned about them, I liked Ringo, but then I started learning more about them & fell for Paul. Having heard their music seperately & learning who wrote what, I find I prefer Paul's music to the others. Needless to say, I was heartbroken by the deaths of John & George, especially John's murder, talent destroyed too soon.
