Like today - no one buys recordings any more because music is free on Spotify, Amazon, Pandora, Google, etc.
Also, minus vinyl records, we wouldn't have all the significant album covers to look at. CDs have inserts but people listening free don't ever see those.
The Beatles would have to make their income via concerts. There are a lot of people to pay in order to make concerts happen. So, the pool of concert money to go around would have to be divided up among a lot of people, not just the Beatles.
I bet that John would not have made his early solo albums under today's conditions. George probably wouldn't have made his electronic album either. And Ringo - well, it seems doubtful he'd make as many as he did. None of them were major sellers, I think.
I know the Beatles got tired of concerts (mainly John and George) so maybe the Beatles would have ended in 1965 or 66. Paul probably would have went totally solo then.
What do you all think about this? What would the Beatles experience be like in today's music world?
