— Kevin Brace yourselves, friends--this may well be the first discussion of the Beatles' break-up that doesn't include a cheap Yoko Ono joke. Really, the answer is simple. They broke up for the same reason they were successful--they were all extremely talented musicians interested in trying new things. We can argue about whether that describes Ringo or not, but I think in general it's true. The breakup really began in 1967 with the death of Brian Epstein, who had managed the group since late 1961. Epstein was the one who kept the Beatles working together, resolving disputes between members, soothing bruised egos, and most importantly, handling the money. After Epstein's death, Paul McCartney tried to step into that role and act as group leader. Unfortunately, Paul's first decision was to involve the group in the film Magical Mystery Tour. While the associated album did well, the film was a disaster financially and artistically. John mocked Paul for the failure, and while Paul still ... more

There are many different theories as to why the Beatles split up. One of these theories is that the rest of the Beatles were getting fed up with John bringing Yoko into the recording studio with him. Also, the Beatles were drifting apart, and they each had their own separate interests that they wished to pursue. The Beatles broke up in the late sixties when Paul McCartney wanted to go his own way in his music career. They evolved and did their thing faster than anyone else. Their time to be in the group together ran it's course quickly. They were in a rather fast life style and accomplished many things in the musical genre. John Lennon's relationship with Yoko Ono had alot to do with the Beatles breakup. They disbanded because of personal differences and musical differences. The Beatles split up because after John married Yoko Ono, she wanted the other beatles to listen to himm more, she was also spending to much time in the recording studios, while the beatles were recording, so, ... more

The Beatles' breakup was not a single event but a long transition, including the cessation of touring in 1966, and the death of their manager, Brian Epstein, in 1967, meaning The Beatles were personally going to be involved in financial and legal conflicts of interest. Internal dissension arose from the emergence of individual artistic interests and ventures, supplanting group unity and vision. Both George Harrison and Ringo Starr 'left' the group at various points during 1968-1969 and all four band members had begun working on solo projects by 1970 as the appeal of working together as a group began to wane. more

Epstein was the one who kept the Beatles working together, resolving disputes between members, soothing bruised egos, and most importantly, handling the money. Meanwhile, the members of the group began moving in different directions. John Lennon became more interested in the avant-garde art scene. At an exhibit in London, he met artist Yoko Ono. They fell in love and planned art projects together. In the beginning, John tried to get the other Beatles to join in, but they had little enthusiasm for these projects, and eventually John worked with Yoko on their artwork without them. http://www.straightdope.com/mailbag/mbeatlesbreakup. more
