The Best Beatles Rif Ever

As another Lame Cherry exclusive in matter anti matter.

 What I am about to write is going to sound condescending, but it not intended at all, for the most talented Beatle was George Harrison and the least talented was Ringo Starr.

Ringo Starr could barely play the drums, His first venture at singing was Buck Owen's Act Naturally.
Richard Starkey though was genuine. He was the biggest victim though of John Lennon and Paul McCartney's drug addictions.

In 1971 though, having broken free from the bad influences of McCartney and Lennon, Ringo Starr would release a song, which George Harrison co wrote, now liberated from McCartney and Lennon, the greatest rif ever produced and it was all George Harrison.

It Don't Come Easy, is the best work the Beatles ever produced, because Lennon and McCartney were not involved. George Harrison, the nice guy and Richard Starkey the humble guy, both cast in the shadow of Lennon and McCartney would create the epitaph to the Beatles success in this wonderful anthem.

Lennon produced nothing after the Beatles. McCartney's parade of work sounded like bad Fleetwood Mac on trash cans on synthesizers.

Harrison would pre produce My Sweet Lord which revealed his genius and established him worldwide as the true talent of the Beatles.

Lennon or McCartney never wrote anything close to the melodic chords of It Don't Come Easy. The Beatles were all four note simplicity that Brian Wilson of the Beach Boys was perplexed as to how anyone could ever think what the Beatles were doing was music of any value.
Wilson was correct.

....and then came George Harrison with It Don't Come Easy.

It Don't Come Easy is not a Stairway to Heaven, which McCartney was always trying to mirror. It is not as nuance as Cliff Richards in Devil Woman. It was though the best Beatles rif, because the Beatles never had anything to do with it, because it was all George Harrison and Richard Starkey.

But the fact is, no matter how talented or good George Harrison was, if he died in eastern paganism and not in Christ, he is not in Heaven with the eternal God, for he chose that which is not eternal in spirits not God and things of this world which have an end, as he had an end.

Once again, another Lame Cherry exclusive in matter anti matter.

Nuff Said
