…I have noticed that this is Ringo Starrs Main message, but I have another conclusion/thought about this!
I have come to a new realisation as to what these 2 words can be related/connected to. For me it all started with the Beatles and what a tremendous group this was and totally outstanding. I am the living proof of this, having followed them from day ONE when their first single game out. From that day on they were the greatest Influence in my life! Their songs, music and lyrics just made my world different.
With every album came something new…..and I mean new. They always surpassed every expectation. I could go on and on about this and nearly in detail describe this album-journey. If you were not there att the time, in the moment it is just impossible to relate to. It was Magic!
So the breakup of the Beatles was a really really a sad moment, a tragedy. How could this happened? If it was the Rolling Stones or some other band it would be easier to understand, but the Beatles?? It was impossible and yet it happened. It took some time to digest this but it was soon forgotten. Why?
Out of this came 4 strong independant musical musicans/artists. When the soloalbum with George Harrison ”All things must pass” came out I was sold on him and his message of Love and existenial questions/answers. This album came just at the right time in my chaotic, turbulent, crazy life. It helped me to understand that life is more than what meets the eye and the ear. I could go on and on about how this album came just at the right time. So thank God Beatles brooke up otherwise George Harrison would never have happened. And his message of Love!
Now to the other beatle that made a difference but in a different way yet like a complement to George Harrison. John Lennons message of Peace are one of the strongest peace messages ever presented/preached by any artists. John Lennon made it simple and clear…..there was no sugar coating the message. It was not only the lyrics that was straighforward but also the music was raw and almost naked. There was no mistaken what he wanted. I loved this way of making music and how music can make a difference!
In short summary…..the split up of Beatles was a blessing in disguise when these 2 individual artists/musicans/activists etc otherwise would not have come into their full capacity! Sad to say that they died/murdered way to early. The world lack voices like George Harrison and John Lennon.
To me they are still a beacon in my world, a comfort to My troubled soul.
(Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr are great artists but in my eyes not the way George and John were)
Of course this could be much longer and more elaborate but I think the message is herr and I made my point!
