He makes a few other comments about Paul NOT being on the fringe. He says John WAS the fringe. I agree that RS is not that far removed from the gossip rags, and it does have a pronounced anti-Paul bias.
I say both Paul and John demonstrated their fringe tendencies when the muse struck. Why the palaver over who was the mostest? Although Paul seems to be the one who usually presses the issue, I've also read interviews (particularly the '80 Playboy interview) where John complained about always being stuck with the experimental cuts. Sounds like even they were confused on the facts! Who knows?
My one criticism of Miles' Paul-bio, Many Years From Now, is that while it does detail Paul's fringe contributions (which I enjoyed reading about), it does so at the expense of Paul's WINGS/post-WINGS history. I guess we'll just have to wait for some comprehensive info on Paul through the 80s/90s+. I hope it will be at least as good as Many Years From Now.
