The Beatles Through The Years has been one of the leading internet entertainment sites related to the Beatles since its incarnation in 2011, for one simple reason: we focus on the fans. While we do provide the history of The Band, talk about the latest Beatles-related news in our blogs and on the Tea and a Butty Podcast, discuss their albums and movies, and swoon over pictures of the lads, we also highlight the individuals that make up this particular fandom, because Beatles fans are what keeps the legend of the Beatles alive.

Unbreakable: Lennon and McCartney

Remember several years ago when this happened:

During his tour in Canada a few years ago, Paul McCartney took part in a question and answer session with a fan and admitted that he still occasionally gets choked up when thinking about John.  (And why wouldn't he?  I do too and I never even knew John!)  He said the last time it happened, "I was singing 'Here Today' for John, which is always such an emotional song because it brings back memories of me and John when were kids.  I was holding it together until I saw a girl in the audience had totally lost it and was weeping. And it got me. I tried to look away, but it was impossible."  (Source)

Anyone who may doubt the love those two had for each other, need only to watch this video of Paul getting choked up over John nearly 30 years after John's death.  They were each other's soul mate.  I don't see any reason to even try and argue that point.  Their chemistry was and has been unmatched by anyone.

And now, to celebrate their love for one another, may I present to you, probably the most beautiful photo shoot in all of history...
