Yes, perhaps Paul could be more generous and give Ringo some work... Or join Ringo's All-Starr Band for a round of shows.
No, I don't think they will. The Beatles want to be independent, create their own music and express theirselves, and I respect them for that. Also, it wouldn't be the same since John and George died. It would more be like a duo if it was reunited lol.

John Bonham's death wasn't the only reason they disbanded. Except from John Paul Jones, both Robert Plant and Jimmy Page was facing their personal issues. But Robert Plant still has a good voice. He can sing.
It sucks, they would have continued if John Bonham was still alive, but they don't want to replace him so they can pay respects.

Two problems with this:
1. Freddie Mercury is dead.
2. They're still together!
Roger Taylor can sing. He has a good voice, too.
No, it isn't awesome without Freddie.
Freddie was the heart of the Queen.
The REAL Queen died with Freddie's death. It is sad, but true.

They got back together in 2006 and have been recording new material and touring since then! William DuVall is the not-so-new vocalist. Although Layne Staley is irreplaceable, William DuVall is actually amazing and they are a great band to see live. They always play a ton of old material.

I wish ABBA reunited or never stopped! It's just so sad that both couples were divorced! Their music is just the best and I love the image of two happy, romantic couples. I was born into the wrong era. Today, music has no meaning or emotion to it. I wish I was there when ABBA were around. They are my and will always be my favourite band ever!

My favorite band ever. Jack always brings something fresh to the table with every band or project he does. Meg was a good drummer and she doesn't seem to be doing much lately. I know they've definitively said it will never happen, but I'd really like it to.
More of a duo tho, but they may come back one day.
