Who will be the last surviving Beetle?
« on: February 21, 2011, 03:28:09 PM »
As morbid as it may sound..........Ringo or Paul.  Who do you think will outlive the other?  My guess is that Ringo will out live Paul.

I must add that I do like the Beatles music as well as all of their solo work.  When I hear music from Wings it brings me back to when I was a kid.  Great music.   

I think the music from the Beetles will still be played hundreds of years from now.

Some would suggest that Ringo already IS the only surviving member of the Beatles.  ;D

Me thinks Paul, you know, AKA "Faul, or False Paul", because I saw this remarkable, amazing, portal-like movie where they explained how a deal was cut with the devil and Heather Mills when the real Paul was killed while driving in the rain with a fan, getting head or something, then crashing and being decapitated. (speaking of head)
 
Spoiler Alert!

Yes, Heather Mills was the admiring fan in the doomed vehicle. 

Ahem, correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't this the premiere post using the Marquee widgit?  You're welcome!


I recently posted on the "movies I'm watching" thread about the marvelous and informative movie "Paul McCartney Is Really Dead"  http://www.coastgab.com/index.php/topic,615.msg34362.html#msg34362  I think Sir Paul might consider some type of libel suit if any of his lawyers could stomach the impossible task of actually watching this cinematic pestilence past the first 15 minutes.

On a lighter Beatles mortality note, and since this is a radio geared forum, this reminds me of a funny true story.  At least half of the funny is derived from the fact that, as I said, it is true.

Being a thoroughly habituated radio hound, it is sometimes enjoyable to listen to a true trainwreck of radio eFup.  (Thus, my occasional monitoring of boy george from time to time.)  Locally produced, weekend morning shows are potentially target rich delivery devices for radio so lame that it can border on the Nooronic, except for that it can be funny.

...So this particularly lame time, it was a Sunday morning and I was working out in the garden, like a damn fool.  The only downside was that the local radio program was sounding like a sonic lobotomy.  Pope John Paul II had just passed on into the grand pleasures of purgatory, (unless he gets a get out of jail free card or something, being pope and all), and the radio guy was moaning on about "it's sad, isn't it sad, how sad is it?- Please call and tell us how sad it is..." and on and on.  Worse, no callers. Hey, yeah, it's sad when anyone dies really, I get it.  But I couldn't take it anymore so I stop my foolish digging to walk over and change the station when I spot the cordless telephone  ;D

Here's how the call went:
Call Screener- Good morning, what do you have to say about how sad it is about Pope John Paul dying?

Me-  Oh it's really said I tell you...

Call Screener-  (Cutting me off, not letting me finish my sentence) Hang on!

Radio Host Guy-  Aldous!  Good morning!  So, what do you have to say about how sad it is about Pope John Paul dying?

Me-  I just wanted to say how sad it is about Pope John Paul dying.

Radio Host Guy-  Yes, it's really sad isn't it?

Me-  Yes, it really is.  Now, it's like what, only George and Ringo are left, right?

Radio Host Guy-  Silence... A little more silence... Click!!!  Caller!  That is not funny!  It is so sad that you would even... blah blah blah.

The crazy thing is that about a month later, on a Sunday morning, I heard the whole thing broadcast again on the replay.  Now that my friends, in this market area, is some great Sunday morning radio!

You see, it's president's day, I have a little extra time is all...

the last surviving Beatle will be ... this is a trick question.  Paul and Ringo have learned from the other Beatles' mistakes.  they have a fleet of clones ready to accept their transplanted braines

The Beatles died on the same day: 31 December 1970.

All a matter of opinion, as John lennon said after the death of Elvis... Elvis really died the day he joined the army. That`s when they killed him, and the rest was a living death.

As for who crosses the finish line last... Ringo has had some chemical abuse issues in the past if I remember correctly. Although not a major implication compared to Paul who by reports has a very healthy diet... so my pick would be Paul to be the winning survivor.

In both cases, "Beetle" and "Beatle", I say the Japanese one lasts longest.

I think that Ringo will go first, assuming no unnatural causes.
