The childish "Paul is better than John" stuff should have no place in a Paul site. How silly.
Both were geniuses, both in similar ways, and in opposite ways.
BOTH needed each other musically, as far as I'm concerned. John had some great solo moments, but he also had some not so great solo moments, as well. Yoko might have stimulated other artistic and emotional responses in him, but, musically, she was no Paul McCartney.
Same would apply to Paul. Linda was someone he could rely on emotionally, but, she was hardly someone who could inspire him, or create on an equal plain with, when compared to John.
Paul's solo career is voluminous. A lot of good. Unfortunately, a lot of not so good. A lot of lazy and medicore efforts. But, a lot of brilliant stuff, too.
Does his solo work compare with his Beatles work? I think, at times, it certainly does. But, it's an unfair comparison. The Beatles were the Beatles. Paul's solo career is Paul's solo career.
Different influences, different times, different needs and goals. The only common ground is that Paul has a pressing need-- THANK GOD!!-- to produce music. And, for that we are all very thankful...and it's why we look forward to each new release, each new tour.
You know, the day is not far off when Paul will NOT be doing these things. So we should appreciate what we have now. Take the bad with the good.
And, lately, the good has far outweighed the bad.
