Well..I could care less if the JL-BE thing happened either. As for Lou Reed, I don't really care for guys who can't carry a tune--may sound harsh, but it's the way I feel. I liked a few of his songs, but that's it. Lennon could sound quite good when he tried. As songwriters, I guess Reed was OK, but never in JL's class, and certainly not in Macca's. Reed is unique and pessimistic--I'll give him that much.
I'm into all kinds of music. As far as melodies, arrangements, and inspiring lyrics, Macca is the best by far. But every once in a while I like to listen to folks like Reed and Dylan. It's kind of grounding in a way. Too much of it, however, can make you really, really depressed. [V] I guess it's all about balance. [8D]
