Band Members leavingEdit
The Beatles broke up in 1970 and the Spice Girls broke up in 2000.
John Lennon left The Beatles in 1969 because when he married Yoko Ono, she took charge of him and his career and her ideas conflicted with the other Beatles, so John and Yoko went out on their own and John felt it was too conventional, and also had grown apart from Paul's conformity to a more conventional style of writing. Also, he was interested in pursuing art, music, and humanitarian causes with his new wife Yoko.
No one honestly knows why on earth Geri officially left The Spice Girls on 31st May 1998 but there are conspiricy theories and rumours.
1. Differences between her and The other Spice Girls.
2. Mel b and Geri are rumoured to have had a fight..( i read this article 2 years ago. the article said that at the back of the stage of their "SPICE WORLD' tour, they argue about the dress and who of them will wear).
3. she wanted a solo career ( the continuation i red in that article is that, ginger wants to be a guest on some shows, but the four don't want to make her go... she said on that interview that she is controlled with her band mates).
4. She was Homesick?.
5. Was she was suffering in gastro-enteritis, a disease in stomach?.
6. Did she feel exhausted and wanted to have a break?.
7. at their 'SPICE GIRLS: GIVING YOU EVERYTHING", Geri, on her interview, She comments, 'I just felt like the band had got so big, and the girls were almost like they didn't need me anymore, really. I definitely felt very redundant, like the wheels were turning whether I was there or not.'
8. She was suffering from Bulimia?.
9. She was Missing her Family?.
10 The death of her Father? (Laurence Halliwell, her Father died when she was very young in 1994 from a Heart Attack and it affected Geri, even when she was a Spice Girl).

Original Band members - BeatlesEdit
Both bands had original members who either left or were replaced.
The Beatles original Drummer was a guy called Pete Best. In 1962 he was mysteriously sacked and replaced of course by Ringo Starr.
The Beatles original Bass Guitarist was Stuart Sutcliffe. He was John Lennon's Best friend from Art College and both he and John came up with the Beatles names. He was also a talented artist. In 1961 he left the Beatles to focus on his painting. Stu sadly died at the age of 21 from a Brain Tumour in April 1962.

Band Reunions The BeatlesEdit
In 1994, (15 years after John Lennon was murdered and 25 years since they broke up), the three remaining members of the Beatles officially announced that they would be reuniting for an Anthology Documentary and album. This was also the last time they ever recorded with George before his death in 2001.
It's strange how at the same time in 1994, The Spice Girls Touch Era had just started.
John also talked about a Reunion in 1975, five years before his own death.
Band Reunion Spice GirlsEdit
In 2007, (ten years since Spice World and Spice Word the Movie), the Spice Girls officially returned for a Greatest Hits Album and a Return Of The Spice Girls Tour also Geri returned permanently to the group.
This article also mentions another possible 2015 Spice Girls reunion. But sadly without Victoria Beckham.
