Was John's solo career any good?

I think his strongest writing was during the Beatles years, and up to IMAGINE. The only album after IMAGINE that I found to be up to high standards was WALLS AND BRIDGES. The other albums have good and not so good tracks. But of course this is purely opinion.

John´s solo career

In short: lots of ups and downs, brilliant stuff side by side with
weak stuff. Pity about self-indulgence and Yoko´s influence/dominance (except her as inspiration for certain great songs of his) getting on his way.

you must also remember that john for a while wasn't too interested in making "pop" songs as opposed to social, political, and personal statements. I mean, he would never write a song like "listen to what the man said" or even "rock show"--based solely for the purpose to open a concert. stuff that he'd do most people wouldn't like anyway. you know, the beatle version of "rage against the machine".

Thanks for reminding me that, Maestri09.
Yes, John trailed off music making quite frequently in the early seventies.

Dude what's your fascination with the choke or choking for that matter? Haven't you heard of Michael Hutchence?? [;)]
