Why do people hate Paul so much? It's not just Maxim magazine, I hear it on the radio too. Whenever there is one of Paul's songs, some DJ or another has to say something hateful about him. And most of my friends dislike him as well. "John Lennon was the REAL Beatle. Paul was just his sidekick" (nice friends I have, eh?).
Is there a reason for all this? It's not that he seems like an unpleasant man in interviews. He's always nice! I think it still goes back to the 1970/1971 John-Paul "flamewar", which was, I think, highly exaggerated. As Paul so often says, they were friends again when John died in 1980.
BTW, did they really jam in 1974? I have a recording of Lucille, supposedly from John and Paul in 1974. Can this be real, or is it that someone has been very creative with two versions of Lucille, one by Paul, one by John?
