    John Lennon will always be my favorite. From the moment I first heard the song A Hard Day's Night, I knew one Beatle was tougher than the others.

    For me it's pretty much a tie between John and Paul with George every so close and Ringo a distant fourth, but if forced to choose, I'd pick John.

    Funny.
    These sort of polls were common in the sixties (almost 40 years ago, folks). Not on the Internet of course! [​IMG]
    Other important questions were: are you more a fan of The Beatles or The Rolling Stones (they were considered almost incompatible), who do you fancy more: Marianne Faithful (= Stones - As Tears Go By) or Mary Hopkin (=Beatles - Those Were the Days, Knock Knock Who's There), and many more.
    And that was even before Yoko Ono succeeded in splitting The Beatles apart...

    John Lennon, by far. With Paul last.

    I know I will certainly be in the minority but I liked George the best. I thought he was an underrated guitarist and I liked his songs best.

    I've always slightly preferred Lennon's style to Paul's, signing/songwriting that is.
    But it's darn close. No knock on George who is excellent as well.
    My hard and fast rule is to NEVER, EVER listen to the musical opinions of someone who says that there is not a single Beatles song that they like. That's either BS or the person is a musical idiot.
    You don't have to love the band, but not unlike CCR the Beatles "Wrote a Song for Everyone" (although in a different meaning [​IMG]).
    Stones/Beatles/Zep - I'm never quite sure which I put on top, but I usually see it as a range of songwriting (Beatles) to performance (Zep) with the Stones the compromise. IMO you can't go wrong with loving any of the 3.

    I can't choose between John and Paul. They're both equally great in my mind.

    In terms of the Beatles, I agree that all 4 of them made it special. Even removing Ringo from the equasion would have changed alot.

    However, in terms of later solo work, I'd pick John, with Paul as a close second.
