What Happened To the Beatles?

The Beatles are the famous band that was formed in 1960. The group is said to be the most influential musical band of all time. The Beatles are made up of the following prominent band members; Ringo Starr, John Lennon, George Harrison, Paul McCartney. You, like millions of other Beatles fans all around the world, may be wondering what happened to the Beatles. Continue reading to know what happened to the individual members of the band.

John Lennon

Stuart Sutcliffe that played bass for the Beatles band was killed in 1962 in Germany. While their first drummer, Pete Best is alive. Ringo Starr replaced Pete Best in the group because he was a better drummer than Pete. Stuart Sutcliffe suffered a brain hemorrhage which resulted in his death.  He died before the group becomes successful. That was the reason why Paul McCartney has to replace Stuart Sutcliffe as a bass player for the band.

George Harrison

John Lennon, a core member of the band, was killed in 1980 on the 8th of December. John was shot dead by an insane fan, just in front of his New York apart. His ash remains were sprinkled on the Central Park that is not far from the Strawberry Fields Memorial. His first wife, Yoko traveled to Liverpool several years after his death and was spotted walking inside the Strawberry Field. It was rumored that she took some of her ex-husband’s ashes to a child care center where John used to visit before his death.

George Harrison passed away in 2001 after battling with lung cancer for some time. His ash was sprinkled by the Hindu tradition in the Ganges and Yamuna Rivers. Just before his death, George faulted his lung cancer to have occurred as a result of his smoking habit which he continued for a more significant part of his lifetime.

Paul McCartney

Paul McCartney is still much alive. Not long ago, he released a remix of his albums titled Tug of War and Pipes of Peace. The original version of these albums was first published in the 1980’s. Paul still goes on tours.
