The Beatles

Band breakups are much like relationship breakups: they're rarely clean cut, and there's usually plenty of hurt feelings to go around. Click through the gallery above for a look at some of music's most painful breakups — for the band and for the fans — as well some of the positive things that followed each split.

And tonight on the Panel, George delves into the topic of divorce and splitting up more generally with Humble Howard, Arthur Simeon and Inessa Frantowski. Tune into George Stroumboulopoulos Tonight on January 8 at 7 p.m. on CBC to catch the panel.
