In his book Dreaming The Beatles, the great Rob Sheffield points out a fun postscript to the story of the biggest, most important, most iconic band of all time: Pretty soon after the Beatles dissolved, both Paul McCartney and John Lennon started bands with their wives. Sheffield has a great line about how you can’t really picture Mick Jagger and Keith Richards doing the same thing. But the Beatles had already become more famous than any human being should ever really be, and so that decision, from both Lennon and McCartney, makes a lot of sense. Those two bands were wildly different, but neither Lennon nor McCartney really had anything left to prove. So they both chased their own versions of domestic bliss, and both of those versions involved making music with their wives.
