  • John Lennon wrote “It’s only love” not “Its only one”. The band’s line up never changed after they got famous. Saying that their line up changed several times is misleading.

  • John Lennon started a band called the Quarrymen. As he replaced members of that band with Paul, George and Ringo they changed the name to the Beatles. Get your facts straight, the Beatles line up never changed.

  • Well, the lineup did change once, for about 10 days, Jimmy Nicol sat in for Ringo during Australia tour. Ringo had tonsillitis.

  • John Lennon is worth a lot more, just behind Paul McCartney, largely due to Yoko Ono's adept handling of their finances and investments. Whatever else she was, Yoko was a shrewd business woman. Sean Lennon stands to inherit nearly a billion when his mother dies!
