The Beatles Inspired The End of Seinfeld

(Gibson) Jerry Seinfeld recently appeared on the SiriusXM program, Come to Papa, hosted by fellow comedian Tom Papa. Among the topics discussed was Seinfeld's decision to end his hit TV series at the height of its popularity. Seinfeld said that his inspiration for shutting down the hit show after just nine seasons was a surprisingly musical one.

"The Beatles ended too soon for me, and it was also nine years," said Seinfeld. "That hunger for The Beatles has lasted my whole life. Whenever a Beatles song comes on the radio I reach for the volume and turn it up, because I still haven't gotten enough of them. That was really how I made the decision."

Seinfeld said that urge to leave the crowd wanting more can be found in another musical source, as well. "Somebody said to me, that's what makes Mark Knopfler such an amazing guitarist. He doesn't play quite as much as you want him to. You know, you just want him to play more, and he doesn't. You know? And that's what makes you love it." more on this story
