PART IV: As we start the year 1971, The Beatles have officially broken up and disolved.

They all have released solo albums.
John is the only Beatle to have released solo singles. 
Paul has written and produced #1 hits for other Apple artists and has yet to record any solo music (experimental or otherwise).
George has been producing Apple artists, and releasing experimental albums.
