The Beatles, one of the most iconic and influential rock bands in music history, made an indelible mark on the world during their time together. However, the passage of time has seen the loss of several band members.
In 2023, the surviving members of The Beatles will leave us with an enduring musical legacy. In this article, we'll take a look at which Beatles are still alive in 2023 and celebrate their contributions to the world of music.
Who Is Still Alive From The Beatles?
Only Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr are the two members of The Beatles who are still alive today.
Sir Paul McCartney, the legendary bassist, and songwriter of The Beatles, is one of the two surviving members of the iconic band. Born on June 18, 1942, he remains an active and prolific musician, releasing new music, performing live concerts, and sharing his enduring passion for songwriting.
McCartney has been knighted for his services to music and is considered one of the greatest living songwriters in the world.
McCartney's most recent performance was at the Glastonbury Festival of Contemporary Performing Arts in 2022.
Sir Paul McCartney has released three albums and three books, gone on tour, and created a Hulu Original special with producer Rick Rubin since 2020. During his 2022 Got Back Tour, McCartney's performances astounded fans.
McCartney visited 13 cities in the United States during the tour. Fans who wish to know what McCartney is up to can subscribe to his monthly email, What's That You're Doing?
Ringo Starr, the acclaimed drummer of The Beatles, is the other surviving member of the band.
Born Richard Starkey on July 7, 1940, in Liverpool, England, Ringo has had a successful solo career and continues to make music and tour with his All-Starr Band.
He is also known for his peace and love advocacy and his distinctive drumming style.
Ringo Starr, like his former bandmate, continues to tour to this day. Ringo Starr and his All Starr Band were scheduled to tour until late 2022, but Starr was diagnosed with COVID-19 on October 3rd, 2022, forcing him to cancel six of his October gigs.
Ringo Starr and Paul McCartney were recently seen together at the premiere of Disney's If These Walls Could Sing.
Fans were overjoyed to see the remaining Beatles reunited at the premiere, along with other celebrities such as Elton John, David Furnish, and Twiggy.
When Did The Beatles Make a Comeback?
The band, famed for their legendary heritage, recently reactivated their social media accounts, which piqued the interest of their devoted following.
The band's reunion began with a mysterious message that piqued the interest of its ardent fans. The Beatles' official social media channels released an image of a basic white and orange cassette tape with the letter A on October 25.
The photo was shared on Twitter and Instagram, along with a link to the band's official website.
The cassette itself was riddled with mysteries. There was an orange arrow with the caption “type I (normal) position,” and to the right of the arrow were some blurred song lyrics, creating a sense of suspense.
Despite this, the two remaining Beatles have made a remarkable pledge to write a final song with the use of Artificial Intelligence (AI), with the goal of resurrecting the late John Lennon and George Harrison's vocals.
The Beatles' highly anticipated song ‘Now and Then' is slated to be released on November 2 at 15:00 CET.
Fans all across the world can listen to the song on a variety of classic music and video sites, including YouTube, Spotify, Amazon Music, and Apple Music.
