If you were one of the Beatles...

. . . which one would you be?

I defintiely have had periods in my life where John was the closest fit. That said, I'm left handed and play bass, so perhaps I'm really a Paul.

How about you?

I'd totally be Stuart Sutcliffe.

Better to be cool and die young than end up with an All Starr Band....

Assuming it was back in the 60's, I'd be the one to smack some sense into everybody else and get them to help me make good music.

I'd attend just for the novelty of seeing Pete Best play.

Plus, it's a BPOE lodge, so the beer's got to be cheap, right?

That's a winning combination!

My limited experience with Elks (the two-legged variety) indicates that they tend to be more of a bourbon or whiskey crowd, with beer existing primarily as a chaser. But there is no question that the bar is almost always open, and I suspect they could drum up a Bud or six for you.

I'd want to be Paul....isn't he the only one still alive?

Closer match would be Ringo.....unappreciated for my "obvious" talents.

Either Ringo or Pete: just there, not making a fuss...or in Pete's case, not even there anymore after '65

Definitely Ringo. You don't have to be so serious all the time. You can be the loveable goofball and still make a buncha money. Besides, you get to marry Barbara Bach rather than Yoko.

George. And I'd've loved to be George. Tall, thin, and great friends. Oh, and a wicked talent at an early age.
