    Mick Jagger is on record calling The Beatles, 'The Four-Headed Monster.'
    Individually they were quite good, but together they were unparalleled.

    I voted Beatles, because in my opinion, nobody can beat the Beatles. But if you take each of their post-Beatle careers, I find George's the most satisfying. His solo work, plus The Traveling Wilburys is really incredible.

    John was good overall, but the Plastic Ono Band stuff was just not my thing.
    I liked Wings and some of Paul's solo stuff, but there is a lot of it, and some of it isn't very good.
    Ringo had a decent solo career, but nothing that really stands out for me. I do like his All Starr band work, but I think it helps that he has some legitimate musicians in their own right doing their own stuff, too.

    I’m a HUGE Harrison (solo work) fan. But I can’t pretend that the sim of the parts are greater than the whole, especially after seeing Get Back.

    Saddening revelations in that one. While I have said my apologies to Yoko Ono into the aether, she still cannot sing a note.

    Harrison was a very talented musician and songwriter, I like his work a lot, and even in the confines of the band, he has some great songs.
    But it's not a nice choice to make, The Beatles were incredible, their total output is unsurpassed and their music will be heard for years to come
    The sum of the parts of The Beatles made them what they were, even Ringo, and without either of the foursome, they would not have been the same.

    This "new" official video for an old song premiered back in December, but I only just came across it.

    A great old Harrison song with a star studded cast in the video.

    I'd say nothing more than an excuse to get a bunch of George Harrison fans together. Like Cannonball Run was basically a home movie with all of Burt's friends.

    The Beatles, but ironically my favorite Beatles song is a Harrison song, Love You To.

    Voted Harrison solo. He solo funded Life of Brian, which is much better than any of the music the Beatles (or solo Harrison) made.
