For many years after the break up of the Beatles, John Lennon, Paul McCartney and George Harrison tried to bury the group’s legacy in an attempt to establish their own. (Ringo may have played the fool but he wasn’t one. He embraced being a member of the world’s greatest group from the beginning to the end.) Until the day he died, George Harrison pretended the Beatle elephant was never in the room. John Lennon condemned the Beatles, then mellowed in his semi-retirement, and was coming to grips with his past when his future was snuffed out. As usual, Paul McCartney tried to out do Lennon, painting only the rosiest of images in his songs about his life in the band. McCartney’s “Memory Almost Full” recalls some of those carefree Macca mop top moments, and comes to grips with whether we’ll need him and whether we’ll still feed him now that he’s 64.
