paul was always the most polite, the most resistant to change, and the most conventional in composing (ie: he didn't write "semolina pilchard, yellow matter custard"; he didn't play the sitar and adopt eastern sounds)

john's argument seems to be more of a natural personality thing rather than a hidden agenda.

I think John is complaining about the singles Paperback Writer/Rain, Strawberry Fields/Penny Lane, Hello Goodbye/I Am the Walrus... I think the John song in all these is better than the Paul one but the Paul song is more likely to be something you'd hear on radio...

In short: Y. Ono secured control over John thru' his shades of insecurity and his paranoia. The more paranoid John got, the better for her...she's been a control freak all along.

Song-wise, John was always personal and Paul "general" and more melodic. And of course the latter was more appealing to charts and sales...

Sean seems to have inherited that paranoia as well. (The CIA was behind the idiot that killed John - no need to mention his name)


I once read a book about the 'CIA-involvement' in John's killing. Very interesting, but so FREAKY [:0]. I don't remember the author, but he must be the most paranoid person on earth (alongside his arguments for Johns killing he also more or less accused the CIA of being the mastermind behind Kennedy's assasination too, etc. etc.). He went way too far....[:o)]

I wouldn't say that Bianca.. because Sean also believes John's was a "political" assasination.. ie organised by the government...

It's hard to know what's true and what's fiction with the last few years of Johns's life... but one thing I can't deny is that he did not look healthy.. he looked frail and underweight.. Goldman mentioned that in his book.. if he was right about that, maybe he was right about all the drug taking...

In that last interview John still demonstrated a sharp wit and came across as very intelligent.. I just get the feeling with some of the comments he made about Paul and George that they still would not have buried the hatchet..

Sean suffers from having a controlling mother, so I'm not surprised at some of the stuff he says. She's made him as paranoid as she made John. I wish the thin ice would just crack, lol.
