The Beatles Go Solo: Breakfast with the Beatles Roundtable
The Beatles’ legacy as a band is unquestioned and unmatched in terms of quality and popularity. The solo careers of each of the members of the Fab Four, however, are a little more varied. That’s the main topic of this week’s Breakfast with the Beatles roundtable discussion with host Chachi Loprete, Beatles guru Kevin Quinn and the self-proclaimed “moderately talented moderator” Mike Pelosi.
1970 was a “terrible time for kids,” as Chachi notes, because the Beatles were still the world’s most beloved band and were mired in a break-up. Paul had already begun working on solo material, and some of their solo songs had actually begun as Beatles songs meant for some of the final Beatles albums.
The guys detail the following solo albums from each member, how they differed in terms of sound and content, and how they intersected over the course of each other’s careers.
Listen to Breakfast with the Beatles with Chachi Loprete every Sunday morning from 8AM to 9AM on 100.7 WZLX, or listen live online at Radio.com.
