Default Re: Ringo Says Beatles Were Not A \'Boy Band\' Like Today\'s Male Pop Groups

Yeah, but remember George said that the Spice Girls [img]graemlins/thumbsdown.gif[/img] sounded good if you were 14 and turned the sound down.

Sounds like George probably turned the sound down on them and said rude things like I did. [img]graemlins/laugh5.gif[/img] [img]graemlins/joker.gif[/img]

Seriously, I think Ringo meant that the Beatles were and will remain REAL and PURE talent and not a business - manufactured put-together flash in the pan ensemble. They played their own instruments, were prolific lyricists/composers/poets and also sounded damn GOOD! I think George made that comment about "Spice Boys" all in fun. George had a BRILLIANT sense of humor.
