It was Shemp.
Speaking of the Beatles, when driving back across the country with my daughter a few weeks ago, we were zooming down the highway in southern Illinois and suddenly saw the most surprising thing, a huge 2-dimensional cut-out of a black-and white photo of George Harrison with guitar from the early Beatles' years, with a few cut-out female fans down in front of him cheering; this all out in a big field all alone, seemingly in the middle of nowhere. We were like, What the ... ?!? We found out later that it was in the small town (Benton) where George's sister Louise lived, and as many know he took a trip there in '63 with his brother to visit her. There's a historical plaque also in the town. I found these two entertaining vids about it all.
Geo Martin for yrs
Billy Preston a couple or so
i think martin held them back in getting heavier and pushed the orchestra crap on them
My vote goes to Yoko Ono. With Chuck Berry’s approval.
George's sister also put together the Liverpool Legends Beatles tribute band, which I've seen a couple of times in concert. Great attention to detail with the costumes, and a synthesizer player who can pull off "Strawberry Fields Forever" and even "A Day in the Life," but because the singer playing George acts as the spokesman for the band, I had no idea that George Harrison was the leader of the Beatles before seeing them.
This was a photo I took when they played the Granbury, TX Opera House in 2018:
I think when it comes to the Fifth Rutle, it’s a tie between manager Leggy Mountbatten (who wrote the classic showbiz autobiography, A Cellar Full of Goys), and Bill Murray the K.
I thought we established years ago that it was Clarence Walker.
I would have been the 5th Beatle . . . but they never did ask me to join.
you would have to look at who coined the phase and what era of the Beatles that was... doesn't mean that someone like Martin didn't contribute and in your opinion is one of the Beatles, but whoever coined the phrase is inserting themselves as a member and Martin didn't consider himself a member.
I think why it caught on is because the truth that the Beatles had a lot of outside musicians contributing to the songs... would you consider Jimmy Page the 6th member of Them? Pete Brown the 4th member of Cream?
And was a real taskmaster in the early days. I've heard McCartney say that his strictness about the way they worked permitted them to become The Beatles. Greatest producer of all time? For my money, and for his influence, undoubtedly.
Gotta love Bill Murray!
Come on folks Ringo was the 5th Beatle. Remember He replaced Best on drums. Do the math.
op is correct.
I'm not sure if Asher qualifies for Fifth Beatle status, but I enjoy his show on Sirius-XM's Beatles channel.
Screaming teenage girls...or maybe Ed Sullivan.
A legend that will last a lunchtime.
