  • If a redlink is outside our project scope, or you consider it marginal please strike it out.
  • If a redlink is dubious enough that you be bold and remove it from the article, remove it from this list too
  • Add the most pressing red links (very notable figures or concepts and/or many incoming links) embolden it and add it to the emboldened links list

Abbey Road film scores (14): Well for starters this lot can stay red, well outside our scope (and should be in a split article):

Allan Williams (This house is clean!)

Anthology 1 (17)

Anthology 2 (0)

Anthology 3 (0)

Apple Corps (1)

  • Apple Corps#Apple Studio - Lou Reizner - Outside project scope (not a "Beatle person"), but the question remains about whether to delink him or not (and indeed whether to leave him in the Apple article or not). Has an incoming link from Tommy (album) and seems to be a music biz entrepreneur/producer. Ntability unknown to me. Google search.

The Beatles discography (16)

Beatle haircut (1)

  • Intro - Marianne Stone - Minor league actress, has a non-Beatles incoming link. Note that she plays the reporter in A Hard Day's Night, a very minor role indeed and is not linked at all in the article A Hard Day's Night (film).

The Beatles 1967-1970 (0)

Beatles, Ltd. (1) (tax shelter started early and that later developed for a large part into Apple Corps, probably might be added to the Apple article as a proto-Apple or its predecessor as long as it'll be described a bit in detail)

Beatles and Co. (1) (tax shelter formed in April 1967 and just like Beatles, Ltd. instrumental in the formation of Apple)

Beatles VI (0)

Beatles for Sale (2)

Intro - Paul McCartney: Many Years from Now (book/biography) - mentioned in the text but not in the references list
The album design - Robert Freeman (photographer) (3+ links)

The Beatles' London (4)

Only Wigmore Street has other incoming links, but I think it does no harm to leave the others redlinked. Probably outside project scope, unless somebody feels they deserve articles just because they have Beatles connections (e.g. Cavendish Avenue, where Paul resided for several years...)

List of The Beatles' record sales (0)

Beatlesque (2)

Pete Best (1)

  • After The Beatles - Lee Curtis & The All Stars - Best's post Beatles band, apparently later renamed Pete Best and the All Stars (nothing like a bit of Beatle marketing is there? :)). No incoming links except one for Lee Curtis, but I dunno if the same fellow or not. Probably best to delink.

  • Other candidates - Ed Rudy - who?! -- {{fact}} added. Just another self-promoting journalist by the looks of it. Name rings a bell though... --kingboyk 15:55, 19 March 2006 (UTC)

Help! (album) (1)

  • American release - Ken Thorne (Help! film music composer) - 6 incoming links, Academy Award winner. Not sure if he's within project scope or not, and I'd never heard of him. I won't add him to our to-do list yet but it would seem he probably requires an article.

Hey Jude (album) (0)

History of The Beatles (6)

  • The psychedelic years - Ken Townsend
  • The psychedelic years - Maureen Cleave - British journalist, 4 incoming links
  • The psychedelic years - Datebook - American magazine [1] Not sure if a general teenybop mag (which would be outside project scope) or a Beatles fanzine (within scope). No other incoming links, but as the publication which broke the "bigger than Jesus" story it must have a claim to notability
  • Brian Epstein's death - Carbitol - I'm not sure if this is even correct. The Google results are mighty thin [2]. Can someone with printed matter to hand look up what drug killed Mr Epstein? No other incoming links for Carbitol, nor does a wiki search help much. Strike because a pharmaceutical product is of course outside project scope, but the matter nonetheless needs investigation (and if it's correct should probably remain a link)
  • Personnel - Tony Barrow - Beatles Press Officer 1963-1968. Is this the chap that wrote the wonderful sleeve notes on the Beatles EPs? (and on Please Please Me, if I remember rightly). I suspect he's deserving of an article but he has no other incoming links at the moment -> Now has a stub

  • After The Beatles - Pete Drake - country musician (and I know his name from a George H bootleg track). Stacks of incoming links, should turn blue but not really inside project scope
  • All-Starr Band editions - Timmy Cappello (X 2) - No other incoming links. Project scope? I don't know, maybe just about inside as a member of Ringo's band, but I think outside. Notability status to be determined.

Emboldened red links[edit]

Missing Articles[edit]

Redlinks which need to be turned blue at the earliest opportunity need to be listed here. If you can help by creating a stub (or better!) please be bold and go right ahead (In brackets: number of incoming links from main space, excluding redirects and dab pages):

Created stubs with tracklists and infoboxes and ext links on all Julian Lennon albums... if someone would please have a look to see if they could add anything, that would be appreciated!NaLaochra 15:13, 13 September 2006 (UTC)

Article creation instructions[edit]

You're starting a new article? Great! Please follow these instructions:

  • Articles about The Beatles are generally considered to be articles with a "strong tie" to the dialect of the United Kingdom and should be written in British English.
  • Add the new article to the appropriate subcategory of Category:The Beatles, or to the parent category if most appropriate
  • Add any appropriate template to the article, such as an album or single infobox
  • Place a {{WPBeatles}} template on the new article's Talk page
  • If the article is listed as a redlink on the to-do list please remove it from that list
  • If the article needs a photo and you don't have one, place a {{Photo requested}} template on the talk page and add the article to "Wanted Pics/Graphics" on the the to-do list
  • List the article in the appropriate category on the Article Classification list. Don't classify it yourself, it's best if we classify each other's articles not our own
  • Any new articles that have an interesting or unusual fact in them should be suggested for the Did you know? box on the Main Wikipedia page. DYK has a 120-hour time limit (from the creation of the article, not the nomination).
  • Finally (hooray!) record your wonderful achievement on the Project Log
