The 5th Beatle thing was the question I asked for the first poll on this site. Here are the results...

I don't believe the Beatles would have been able to reach the statis they did without Sir George Martin. He gets my vote as 5th Beatle.

jtal: Murray the K certainly drove that point home about being the 5th Beatle, didn't he? Of course, George Martin played a tremendous role in the lives of the Beatles, but I don't feel anyone should be included as the 5th. The Fab Four were just THAT: FOUR!

What about Neil??
If you were looking for the next closest person to them to be the 5th Beatle, it would have to be him. Peter Brown always said that Neil would be the fifth Beatle without any doubt. I think he knows what he is talking about!

Although I have already posted an opinion...I must agree with origianl fan. Why worry too much about a 5th when they were the FAB 4?!?!

Default Re: 5th Beatle

it's almost the same as what George always sais

'there will not be a reunion as long as John is dead'.

There's only 4. If you consider a 5th, why not a 6th. So, honey don't.

The term "5th" Beatle is a phrase originally coined by a NY disc jockey Murray The K at the beginning of Beatlemania in the states. It is just a phrase and not meant to be taken seriously.
