New Doc, 8 Days A Week, the Beatles on tour.

Ron Howard directed, proving they were the best live band as well:

They were a boy band, but also great artists. Note the ironies of these days. Ringo was a great drummer. We have to admit.

All you others say Hell Yea!! woot!

I haven't watched it yet, although it has surfaced on several well-known Torrent sites. And you know that can't be bad. Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah.

No need for torrents, it's streaming on Hulu.

I went to see it last week at the cinema myself. Loved seeing all the footage on the giant screen as well as the bonus partial restored Shea Stadium concert after the credits.

There's a matinee tomorrow--gonna catch that one. It will be great to see it on the big screen. A nice follow up to the "Ladies and Gentlemen...The Beatles!" museum exhibition I saw last year.

It was an interesting note that for the last seven years of their career, before their break up in 1970 - they never toured. They gave into the loud noise by screaming fans, and couldn't compensate with the amps available at the time to override the noise. For me, some of their best work came after that point - not that the two are related. It just seemed to be a more creative period for them.

And they really only released like - a dozen albums. Imagine if Prince had stopped releasing music after Graffiti Bridge.

This experience will cover courtship, sex, commitment, fetishes, loneliness, vindication, love, and hate.

Well, no -- they toured until 1966, and almost non-stop into August 1965 before slowing down.

.

They were a very 60s band. They first used the name "Beatles" in mid-1960, and the 4 members were last in the same room together in September, 1969. So, it was all in the 1960s.*

.

As a live act, The Beatles were a club band. Once it went beyond the clubs, they gave up trying to improve or adapt, live. As early as 1963 or 1964, they were already far more motivated by studio recording than live performance.

.

.

.

*(Yeah, technically the last recording sessions were in January and April 1970, but all 4 were not present, and only Ringo was present at the very last "Beatles" session in April.)

.

Do you mean lines between paragraphs? Use Shift + Enter a couple of times after your paragraph. It creates a line break. Just hitting Enter won't do it.

Most of the torrent sites have been taken down by law enforcement, big time anyway.

It's a really good film. I have some of their music, but to see how they handled themselves in the midst of the insanity and grueling schedule. And they used their experiences to grow artistically. Most bands who went through such crushing mania wouldn't have been able to make albums like Rubber Soul, Revolver, White Album, Sgt. Pepper and Abbey Road.

I actually gained a new respect for Ringo. He was no joke on the drums, and I like how it was mentioned that he could keep the beat by simply watching the others nod their heads.

In some ways it's amazing they stayed together as long as they did.

McCartney should have retired but his ego is too big no matter how humble he acts. It's an act.

Trust me. Law enforcement has been ineffective in taking down private torrent trackers.

They did say in the documentary that that's how they really made their money. But they were touring globally and recording every six months. And the manic fans, chasing, pulling, prodding at you every day every night all over the world . . . even if they wanted to be stars I can see how that could wear on them.
