During their interviews at the Beatle Convention in Liverpool this year, both Mark Lewisohn and Tony Barrow cited Neil Aspinall as the fith Beatle.

But, in my opinion you can only truly be classed as a fith Beatle if you were actually IN the band when there were five members - so that would be either Pete Best or more likey Stuart Sutcliffe. But that's just MY opinion! :)


Well, Sir George did work IN the band, with the music, you know...

Sir George did a good job...and he was paid... ;)
oh, I love the keyboards parts he played on stage with the guys during the Beatlemania era... and his harmonies too, of course. ;D

In music, the producer always takes part of the work in studio but a band is more than the studio work.

I voted George Martin. Seems so obvious really to me. And most of you from the vote results. The End says he was never in the band, but, he made musical contributions as though he were in the band. Where would a lot of The Beatle's songs be without Martin's fantastic orchestral scores? And the music he wrote for Yellow Submarine on the soundtrack album is really nice too, while we're on the subject of George Martin.

Julian Lennon? He made some albums, and had a top ten UK hit in the late 80s/early 90s.

it has to be George Martin.
He helped play, compose, construct and general experimentation.
He's a fine musician himself.

Rather cool man. :)

Aren't the guys a foursome? I knew them as the Fab FOUR. Let's count: John (1), Paul (2), George (3) and,...and,... yeah,and Ringo(4): 1+1+1+1=4 Where's the 5th one?  ??)  ;D

Why don't we search for the 3rd and 4th before? We've only got two of them.

George Martin was so much more than just a producer. He was a creative force in his own right.

My vote goes for Peter Best, as he was hired fifth, after Stu. He spent two full years with the band, helping them define their sound.

He spent more time on stage, playing live with them, than Ringo.
