When did the Beatles break up?

As Abbey Road was coming out, John Lennon told Paul McCartney "I think you're daft" when they met to discuss future projects, but didn't declare it openly; Allen Klein was renegotiating their record contract, and it would have hurt their bargaining position. Paul McCartney announced his departure in April 1970, as he released his first solo album... and after their contract was renegotiated.

Most people remember McCartney as "quitting first"; he admitted years later that Lennon was the first to go. Lennon was bitter about McCartney's announcement: "I was a fool not to do what Paul did, which was use it to sell a record." McCartney also hated the changes Phil Spector made to "The Long And Winding Road", but could not stop the Spector version's release.

In December 1970 McCartney began legal proceedings to officially dissolve the Beatles as a legal entity. (He said later "I felt like an arse, suing my best mates and being seen to sue my best mates.") Their partnership was not legally dissolved until 1975.

1970.

How many Beatles songs are there?

There are 275 BeaTles songs. Below is a list:

17- Abbey Road

14- Beatles For Sale

1- Free As A Bird (included for it is a 1995 single the Beatles released w/ strong John Lennon presence on the track. John also wrote the song. Excluded is the B side which is a Xmas song, because that's a seasonal track)

13- A Hard Day's Night

14- Help!

12- Let It Be

55- Live At The BBC (1994 release. Removing the speeches from the album gets 69 tracks down to 55 songs. John Lennon wasn't alive during this albums release, but since its obviously amazing songs, in mono, that were originally played live on the radio, John Lennon would most likely have approved of its release).

11- Magical Mystery Tour

33- Singles released during the Beatles reign (available on "Past Masters" or a combination of 30 songs from "Mono Masters" & 3 from "Past Masters" excluding the 4 Yellow Submarine tracks from "Mono Masters", and all but 3 from "Past Masters if you combined Mono+Past Masters).

14- Please Please Me

2- Real Love (This song is the last Beatles single. It was released in 1996. Like Free As A Bird , this song has a strong John Lennon Presence and was written by John Lennon. The B side is "Baby's In Black" live 'edited' track from two performances at the Hollywood Bowl by the Beatles, which John Lennon would have approved, because, released in the '70s on vinyl but not yet on CD is a Beatles album "Live At The Hollywood Bowl" which does not include the track, but since John approved the others on the album, it is most likely he would approve this track as well).

14- Revolver

14-Rubber Soul

13- Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band

30- (The Beatles/White Album)

14- With The Beatles

4- Yellow Submarine (Excluded from this number are the two duplicate tracks "Yellow Submarine" & "All You Need Is Love" from Revolver & Magical Mystery Tour, & also the classical style soundtracks from the Beatles film/cartoon called Yellow Submarine)

---

Total songs: 275

First, some people may notice that there are indeed some "duplicates" that occur from the number of 275, which are: All My Loving/Baby's In Black/Can't Buy Me Love/Dizzy Miss Lizzy/Everybody's Trying To Be My Baby/A Hard Day's Night/I Saw Her Standing There/I Wanna Be Your Man/I'm A Loser/Let It Be/Long Tall Sally/Love Me Do/Matchbox/Roll Over Beetoven/A Taste Of Honey/Things We Said Today/Til There Was You...

...but, these "duplicate" song performances each have their own unique sound. Also, it should be noted that if Live At The Hollywood Bowl is ever fully officially released by Capitol records on CD/digitally, then to the list we would add the 13 songs on that album for a total of 288 songs (with those 13 being very unique "duplicate" performances)...

...also, in the singles collection you will hear two non English songs, unique performances, in German, of "I Want To Hold Your Hand" & "She Loves You."

Finally...

If you are a hard core Beatles fan there are several more songs and albums released after the passing of John Lennon. Such as the Anthologies 1, 2, 3, Let It Be... Naked, & Love. Also, listening to the Beatles as solo artist, and the various collaborations between them after "The Beatles" broke up, John, Paul, George, & Ringo is a great addition to feed a love for the Beatles.

Also, if you bought the Beatles on iTunes & love the Beatles, but don't have "Free As A Bird" & the "Real Love" singles, it would be in for your enjoyment that you obtain a copy of them, they should be easy to find. Finding Live At The BBC CD should not be hard either.

Overall, the list above and the number 275 is a good current list & number that answers the question "how many Beatles songs are there?" Listening to them will really let you hear the BeaTles and understand why they are so amazing! (last edit: 07/20/11)

How when and where did George Harrison die?

Throat cancer, which spread to his lungs, then his brain. "I got it purely from smoking", he said in a latter-day interview.

Harrison died at 1:30 pm on the 29th of November 2001, at Gavin de Becker's home in Los Angeles.

George Harrison died November 29, 2001 at 58 years old.

**********

George was a very heavy smoker of up to 3 packs per day it has been said. Some sources say he quit smoking in the 80's and some say it was as late as 1997 or he started again. Another thing that has to be taken into consideration for all of the Beatles is the prolonged exposure to massive amounts of second hand smoke in bars and enclosed arenas, etc. which was indicative to their early career. Also pot smoking is very bad as it has a higher sticky tar-like residue added to the lungs and George was a heavy pot smoker as well a large part of his life.

Cigarette smoking is a horrible addiction - not a "habit" as non-smokers flippantly call it. It takes years to quit and be successfully quit. Sometimes it's too late.

Where is George Harrison buried?

In keeping with tradition in Hindu and Hare Krishna faiths, George was cremated within a few hours of his death, and before his passing was announced to the worlds media. Following his death it was reported that his ashes would be scattered on the waters of the River Ganges, also a Hindu tradition, and some people gathered on the banks of the river when this was supposed to happen, but (as far as I have found out) this did not happen, leaving the exact whereabouts of George's ashes a mystry. Some people believe they were scattered in Sweden where George had been living prior to his death, or other people think they may have been taken to his English home at Friar Park.
George was cremated, not buried. His ashes were scattered in India,

Who was Georges Braque?

Georges Braque was a famous French painter who focused first on Fauve painting and after 1908 especially on early Cubism, together with his friend Pablo Picasso; they worked together for years till 1914.

In the summer of 1911 Braque and Picasso painted landscapes side by side in Céret, in the French Pyrenees, each artist producing paintings which are difficult to distinguish from the other. The influence of the ideas of Cézanne was very present in these early artworks: Cubism was born.

In World War I Georges Braque was severely wounded; when he resumed his artistic career in 1917 he developed a more personal style in Cubism, characterized by brilliant colors, subtle lines and textured surfaces; he painted many still life's. During his recovery he became a close friend of Juan / Jean Gris, also a Cubist artist in Paris. In the period between the wars, Georges Braque exhibited a looser and freer approach to Cubism, intensifying his color use combined with a looser rendering of objects. After 1950 he started to paint landscape again, but then with very simple motifs as a 'plow in the field'. A quote by Braque when he was an older man already, but still painting very intensively:

- The only valid thing in art is that which cannot be explained. To explain away the mystery of a great painting - if such a feat were possible - would be irreparable harm… …If there is no mystery than there is no 'poetry', the quality I value above all else in art. What do I mean by 'poetry'? It is to a painting what life is to man… … For me it is a matter of harmony, ofrapports, of rhythm and - most important for my own work - of 'metamorphosis.

* artist quotes from 'The Observer', John Richardson, 1 December 1957

George, in addition to his Hindu beliefs, still maintained his Christian beliefs. He often wore his "OM" button while wearing a cross around his neck.
