Much admired for the wrong reasons, primarily, of course, the appalling 'Imagine'. George Harrison's post Beatles oeuvre is infinitely preferable. Come to to think of it, so is Ringo's - 'Back off Boogaloo'etc. Though not , of course, MacCartney's

I remember once when you and I stopped at a gas station during on one of our Desperate Drives To Escape, probably along the St. Johns RIver. You came out with a couple of Hershey bars (with almonds) and tossed one to me saying, "You know, this was John Lennon's favorite." I don't know why I never forgot that. So I Googled it: Playboy January 1981.

I V - Sounds pretty cliche to me or you just enjoy Cheese.

DB- I forgot it until you mentioned it. If I remember correctly,

John smoked Shermans
Yoko smoked Gauloises
John wrote songs in New Yorker diaries

THat's all I can remember but I do know that I smoked Shermans for a while and bought a New Yorker diary.

I V Style is just plain wrong. McCartney's first solo record, McCartney, is more solid than anything the other three managed to throw together post Beatles.

And... nothing against Lennon, but recording farts and finer moments of domestic bliss onto 1/4" tape doesn't make you a genius. It just makes you annoying. Ditto for Harrison.

Ringo endeared himself to the great white horde (and me) when we realized he pshaw'd veggie diet demanded by their hindi guru and brought along a few flats of beans.

I admire anyone prepared to stick up for Paul and his post Beatles crap choices (Linda on keyboards, Mull of Kintyre, Ebony and Ivory, no need to go on surely), but you're wrong matey (see above).

George organised the concert for Bangla Desh long before that twat Geldof 'thought up' BandAid and OK, the Norah Jones dad sitar bit at the beginning is quite boring, but the Dylan set is excellent and the 'All Things Must Pass' and 'Living in the Material World' songs were much better than anything Paul ever came up with. Not to mention the Christmas singles, or Heather Mills, or 'Give Ireland back to the Irish'
Dickhead.

IV Style- Hey, no one calls my readers "dickhead" 'cept me. And I only call my readers 'dickhead' when they deserve it. Got that, dickhead?
