What would a 2000 Beatles Album Have Sounded Like?

    After listening to the mesmorizing, powerful Brainwashed by the late George Harrison, and then Paul's Driving Rain, I can only wonder....if these cats were all still alive and made an album together....what would it be like?

    Some of Harrison's stuff on his last album was more emotional than anything he has done in the past 25 years, IMO.

    Paul's Driving Rain had some touching numbers as well as some nice rockers.

    I have no idea...BUT..

    ...this would better be posted in Misc or Recordings :).

    Just trying to guide you to the right place.

  3. Paul's still alive...

    My bet is he's the next to go, however.

    I love Paul.

    Probably just as boring as all their other albums.
    (Paul A is a registered non - beatles fan) :meh:

    Probably boring, too clean and polished.
  9. Probably better than Metallica's St Anger.... :rolleyes:

    Please, no. No more beatle monomania.

    I have all the albums except "With the Beatles", plus the anthology book, CD and DVD, so it's not like I don't like the subject, but...

    starting two beatle threads on the same day?

    C'mon, variety is good.

    By the way, Ringo is allergic to a lot of things and is older than Paul, who just became a dad.

    putting bets on which beatle will die next is a bit too morbid for me.

    I like to spread 'em out.

    If I got them all, I wouldn't look forward to buying another beatle record. Not having them all makes me go back for more.

    It's a bit like Homer's forbidden donut.;)

    Actually, I think, apart from anthologies and things, With The Beatles was the last Beatles album I got.

  15. I think I can answer this one and as long as we are dreaming, let's pretend John would still be alive:

    1. Ringo would get to sing 1 or at best 2 songs.

    2. George would get more than one song.

    3. Martin would still produce.

    4. John would make sure that it wasn't too polished and had some staight ahead I, IV, V rock songs.

    5. It would contain modal melodies.

    6. John would experiment with one track.

    7. All their fans would still hate Yoko - "Hey Yoko, wanna level your karma babe, starting dating one of the Baha Men" Dennis Miller

    I never really understood why people were always wondering where the Beatles would have gone if they had not broken up. The thing is that they were all pretty much writing their songs on their own anyway, so I doubt that there would be much difference between what they wrote solo in the 70's than what could have been if they had not disbanded. I think that you would get an album with pretty much the same songs, but with the Beatles playing their respective instruments(eg. Ringo playing the drums instead of Macca on anything from 'McCartney', and Paul on bass in Lennon's 'God').
    Would we have the 'All things must pass' album if they had not disbanded?

    Back to the point, a 21st century Beatles album might've seen George playing slide on 'Freedom' rather than Clapton, and Paul playing bass on 'brainwashed'.

    Sort of on the same topic(but not at all really), I would love to see another Travelin' Wilburys album (alas, minus George).
