I don't think he could've carried a band on his own with his own songs. His osngs just pale in comparison to Pauls. But I've never heard any of his solo work so I may be mistaken
Well, Kurt Cobain's songs pale in comparison to Paul, but I think he did a fine job carrying a band. You just can't make that comparison.
I have to respectfully disagree. Many of Kurt's songs blew Paul well and truly out of the water (Blew is one example lol), there are so many Kurt songs Paul would have no hope in hell of coming up with - Kurt came up with riffs no one in else the world could imagine.
Regarding Spirits of Ancient Egypt, so what if Paul wrote it... Denny takes lead vocal... it's Denny's moment in the sun.

Well, it's neither stupid nor childish. It is a valid human emotion, irrespective of how old you are or your background. Listen to John Lennon's Plastic Ono Band album. Angst is its middle name. Inner demons are what make musicians interesting to me. Sure it's nice to have your Neil Sedakas as well, but life isn't all candy floss and calendar girls, is it!
