RE: RE: Lennon & McCartney w/ no Beatles?

There are a few ways of looking at this question. If they had ONLY their actual solo records and no more, would we know them. I say, yes, but they would be nothing like their fame is now. The reality is that everyone now, people young and old, people into rock/pop and those not into it, know who John Lennon was. And yet they probably can't name 7 of his solo songs. So I think John would be known, but known only a little. That is, based on what he actually produced. Paul, more known as he lived, and produced many more charted songs.

But as Keno points out, if there were no Beatles, the talents of Lennon and McCartney would have come out one way or another, and their solo careers would NOT have been the same. You would have seen the best that Lennon ever had to offer musically and lyrically in his solo records. No idea what that would have been like, but it would have been good. Lennon's solo career began towards the end of the Beatles and it began with some experimental albums he did with Yoko Ono, which would NEVER have formed the basis of a solo debut under normal circumstances.

I do think George Harrison would have made some fine albums.

Our beloved Stones... very hard to say.

The other possibility is that if there were no Beatles or Stones, all these great artists end up in other bands, to varying degrees of success and fame.
