He gambled and took a huge risk when he signed an unknown group of semi-polished musicians that many others passed on.

He then patiently worked with them to craft many unforgettable compositions, including 23 #1 hits.

As such, he should be appreciated and revered as much for his foresight, vision and tenacity as for his formidable abilities as a composer, arranger and producer.

The 5th Beatle indeed!
