Before They Were Famous, The Beatles Hoped To Last 10 Years


We found an interview with The Beatles from 1962 where they speculated about their future.  This was, obviously, before they became household names.  John Lennon said it would be “big-headed” to think they’d last 10 years. Paul McCartney was sure they couldn’t keep playing the same music until they’re 40.  George Harrison hoped to have enough money to go into business before they “flopped.”  And Ringo Starr always “fancied owning a string of ladies hair salons.”
