The Top Ten

1 John Lennon John Lennon John Winston Ono Lennon, MBE was an English singer and songwriter who rose to worldwide fame as a co-founder of the Beatles, the most commercially successful band in the history of popular music. He was assassinated by Mark David Chapman on December 8, 1980 at age 40.

Have always been so enamored of this genius who was unflinchingly, brutally honest, so courageous and so gifted, compassionate and humane. Love, love, love John Lennon!

He is the soul of the band, without him the Beayles would not be as great as many of us know.

He is so talented and his songwritting skill is priceless.

3 George Harrison George Harrison George Harrison was an English guitarist, singer, songwriter, and music and film producer who achieved international fame as the lead guitarist of the Beatles.

Honestly, while the lyrics are not nearly as sophisticated, I feel that George Harrison's "My Sweet Lord" is just more meaningful than Lennon's "Imagine." It has a certain air in it that makes you think, at least for me. For what it's worth, I think he was in a same league as some of the other great guitarists of that era. Definitely the best Beatle.

Should be number one.

Many Beatles fans are very Lennon & Mccartney!
to me I love them all, especially George!
I love his guitar sound so helping for those songs!

He da BETS
