The top 10 Beatles news stories for 2013: a hard day's choice

See also

Looking back over all the Beatles news stories we covered here on in 2013, we were surprised how hard it was to whittle down a list to the 10 best as of Dec. 31. There were so many good stories this year, beginning with the obvious major picks of the CD releases of Paul McCartney's “NEW” and “The Beatles Bootleg Recordings 2013.”

New Beatles books made the news, too. But there were many other stories, with other Beatles-related releases, tours, as well as some sad news with the deaths of some famous name Beatles associates.

So what do you think is the biggest Beatles news story of the year? These are our choices for the top 10 news stories about the Beatles, along with some honorable mentions. (And this is the only place you'll see "twerking" mentioned.) It's quite a varied list, but to quote Frank Sinatra, newswise, at least, it was a very good year. And we're very happy that we could bring it all to you.

We'll see you next year so we can do it all over again in 2014.

NOTE: Our top news choices are listed from #10 to 1, followed by honorable mentions for the top 10 and Beatles associates who died in 2013. To see them all, click on View Photos box above.
