    I’ve thought about this scenario but about going back in time and having like fifty all time hits.

    Also thought about playing Metallica with a bunch of generators filled with gas to power electric instruments during the civil war era.

    Seems like it’s basically a movie full of Beatles songs so it should be pretty amazing.

    My wife is a huge Beatles fan and it comes out the day before our anniversary. Guess I know what we'll be doing.

    Now that is an intriguing movie idea. Much better than a sequel or “remake” of a movie that’s not even old yet

    My wife and I got absolutely baked in Vegas and went to see LOVE, the Beatles show that Cirque du Soleil does and we had a blast so I'm going to assume this will be good.

    The chances of Richard Curtis and Danny Boyle being involved in the same project and it being a bad offering are borderline non-existent.

    Not sure if that music came out today if there’d be that much of a market for it.

    This would be like a grandfather paradox because literally every rock band today is a descendant of the Beatles

    I mean, with Ryan Adams going down, we’re now back to wondering about where a line gets drawn with this sort of shit.

    The Beatles are great. But Lennon is also on record about beating women and such. So there’s that whole thing.

    I think it's fine to separate bands from the people who are in them. Varg Vikerness murdered a dude and is some kind of white supremacist, but his band Burzum is great.

    There being no Beatles is a very disturbing thought. I don't want to live in a world without this:

    If you had a time machine, you could write every song, book, movie, etc. Release or "write" the hit right before the actual artist does, over and over.
