Close call between Paul McCartney Maybe I'm Amazed 20 April,1970, and George Harrison My Sweet Lord 15 Jan, 1971 Its John Lennon "give peace a chance " 1969

The above would be true if Lennon had been solo. In addition it would all be different if the question was more closely defined as:

"Which ex-Beatle was the first to have a solo hit". This may be the question you wish to ask.

The whole thing is debatable here. For one thing Lennon's song was released as part of the Plastic Onon Band and hence wasn't solo.

As the Beatles were officially disbanded in April 71, the Ex-Beatle term cannot be applied to George Harrison.

Under the strictest terms of being after the Beatles actually split and with a solo career, the honour goes to Ringo Starr and "It don't come easy". It's notable that in fact the one of two of the Beatles has music hits whilst still firmly together, writing film scores and songs for others; McCartney for example.

If the criteria are:

1. Ex-Beatle

2. Solo hit

Ringo fulfills both of these. Lennon fails on point two and Harrison on point one.

McCartney's first post-Beatles hit single was "Another Day", written and recorded with wife Linda.

"Maybe I'm Amazed", from his first solo album McCartney, was a popular album track, but was not issued on single. (A live version was later issued, from the album Wings Over America.)

McCartney was actually sued by his publisher in the early 1970s, for co-crediting Linda on many of his songs; the publisher claimed that Linda's credit was merely a way for McCartney to obtain a larger share of royalties. The claim was shot down in court, with the judge determining that if Linda helped McCartney with his songs in any way, she was entitled to a co-credit.

How did beatle mania start?

Beatlemania started when the boys first arrived in the United States in 1964. It ended when they anounced that they would stop touring in 1966. Other forms of Beatlemania have appeared throughout the years. When the band split in 1970, a small form of Beatlemania erupted and again when John Lennon was assassinated in 1980. When Oasis released their first album in 1994, many fans bought old Beatle albums which could be described as Beatlemania. Other forms of Beatlemania were when George Harrison died in 2001 and when Cirque de Soliel performed Love which contained many Beatle songs in 2006-2007. Beatlemania is expected to return in September of 2009 when the Beatles: Rock Band game is released.

Who are the anti-Beatles?

Although many will say the Rolling Stones, they were good friends. The Beatles even gave them their first big hit with "I Wanna Be Your Man" (the Beatles later did this song themselves on Meet the Beatles). I would say that Elvis Presley was very 'anti-Beatle' (If that's what you mean). He hated these guys and even went to Richard Nixon and asked if he could get them off the charts! So I would say that Elvis Presley was the anti-Beatles.
