lennons abuse to women[edit]

I just think there should be a mention to his views and abuses of women, not just anecdotes from his first wife. i mean he said in an interview with play boy that he beats the hell out of women. (i think thats note worthy)

Do you have that source from "play boy"? Don't think he's beating anyone now. (talk) 15:30, 3 May 2016 (UTC)

"It is a diary form of writing. All that 'I used to be cruel to my woman, I beat her and kept her apart from the things that she loved' was me. I used to be cruel to my woman, and physically... any woman. I was a hitter. I couldn't express myself and I hit. I fought men and I hit women. That is why I am always on about peace, you see. It is the most violent people who go for love and peace. Everything's the opposite. But I sincerely believe in love and peace. I am a violent man who has learned not to be violent and regrets his violence. I will have to be a lot older before I can face in public how I treated women as a youngster." <close quote> The way you say things make it seem like he beat women until the day he died, when in reality, he started doing it in his teenage years, when his mother died (or it could have been a little bit before her death), and stopped at around 1967. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 2601:547:1200:F22C:F47D:9CAA:703F:EEFD (talk) 19:09, 11 August 2016 (UTC)

Semi-protected edit request[edit]

Original Group Name[edit]

I seem to recall that there was another name before "The Quarry Men". The WP entry for Quarry Men mentions "The Blackjacks", but that they never played under that name. Should it be added here? --Daveler16 (talk) 15:46, 19 December 2016 (UTC)

Hall of fame?[edit]

Intro says Beatles were inducted into RR HOF in 1998,wasn't that 1988? (talk) 22:01, 9 January 2017 (UTC)Tim

Seriously folks, straight from the Rock and Roll of Fame website:

THE BEATLES Courtesy of the Rock Hall Library and Archive 1988 Category: Performers Members: Paul McCartney Ringo Starr John Lennon George Harrison Such a blatant error in the first paragraph? Will someone PLEASE fix? (talk) 17:13, 25 January 2017 (UTC)T

Tiny grammatical point[edit]

Biography: Paragraph 3. Tiny point but ' I would infiltrate the other boys minds.'

There should be an apostrophe after the 's' in 'boys'

I would infiltrate the other boys' minds.-- (talk) 11:06, 23 March 2017 (UTC)
