NME has reported that The Beatles museum in Hamburg, Germany will be closing at the end of the month due to a lack of interest.
The Beatlemania museum opened in 2009 and has a collection of over 1,000 pieces of Beatle memorabilia. The museum is located near many of the venues where the band played in their early years. The museum has had an estimated 150,000 visitors in the past three years.
Ringo Starr's birthplace has been in the middle of a dispute which could have resulted in the destruction of No. 9 Madryn Street. According to UCR, Starr's birth home was saved by a group of local Beatles fans.
The government will apparently even renovate the street for approximately £2 million and the National Trust may even add it on the list of Beatles landmarks in Liverpool. This has happened for both John Lennon and Paul McCartney, although George Harrison's house is still used as a private residence.
According to Paul McCartney, The Beatles considered reuniting but alas, it wasn't enough drive power behind the idea to set things in motion. Rolling Stone reports that the band was afraid to taint their legacy, should they against all odds have reunited. Apparently McCartney and the rest of the band members worried if they would come together again, people would start to think they were bad and had been all these years.
It would also seem that the band couldn't agree to the idea, there was always one person that didn't exactly approve of it. Even though the band never did reunite when all the members were alive, some of the members did collaborate with each other on various records and projects.
What do you think? Is it good that The Beatles never saw the reunion through? Or do wish they had? Let us know in the comments!
Paul McCartney has after a long time coming received his well earned star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. US Weekly reports that McCartney is the final Beatles member to have been honored in this manner and the 2,460th star in total.
McCartney was clearly moved by the star and thanked his fellow Beatles members, Ringo Starr, George Harrison and John Lennon for making it possible. He also said that he couldn't believe this would happen when he was just a kid living back in Liverpool, listening to various rock legends such as Buddy Holly.
