His forcing his non-talent wife on us because of his name?

Not to seem like a troll, but if, and when, Wings gets into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, that will mean Linda McCartney will be inshrined with the McCullochs, Laine, Seiwell, Juber, English, Britton, and Holly as well as Paul of course.

Just remember that when going after Yoko for John's over emphasizing her on his albums, songs and live performances.

Paul took his lumps for Linda, SteveJ...
On the other hand, Linda was pretty well hidden and actually added to their sound pretty well...
The only sound Yoko could have been a positive addition to would have been a city scene with a fire nearby.
But, hey, good luck defending Yoko...I encourage more!

For the record, that wasn't a defense of Yoko Ono, just saying that your point there can be used to detract Linda's contribution to Paul McCartney's life and career.

You are right in terms of how Paul was able to integrate Linda into his solo albums, Wings and live shows.  He never devoted half an album to Linda singing while he backed her up and such. 

In their defense as well, they did seem to be a bit less eccentric and attention seeking in their public displays of affection than John and Yoko.  I mean there are songs dedicated to Linda McCartney, but it's not Paul and Linda saying each other's names for a solid 10 minutes.

John and Yoko had to be about the most disgusting and offensive couple in music history, don't you think?
I really liked him, though.

Testy, aren't we?
These are honest opinions and most are directed at Yoko.
John was a wimp for allowing her to control her.

Yoko is not untalented. Her singing is very bad, but I happen to think her poetry is quite hood and her performance art is interesting, even though I don't like her as a person.

These are all GREAT guesses but I still put John and Yoko ahead of all of them (and I wish I wasn't able to)...
I mean, go back and look at the old Merv Griffin and David Frost clips of the two of them...the album cover...her singing in concert...totally disgusting.
Hey Nimrod...how on living earth do you get OFFENDED from an opinion about two other people...Are you joined at the hip with Yoko Ono now or something? Toughen up, mate!

I think she has talent Mairi (not as a singer)  ha2ha I realize she is disliked intensely by Beatle fans but I cant help feeling that she has artistic talent..

I cant say whether Id like her as a person, Id have to meet her first.

The art she and her fellow artists created was unique in that the actual art was the reaction of the audience...The best one I heard of was the guy who came out in front of a crowd to play the piano and held his hands out to his the keys, but never let them down for over 10 minutes...the crowd's reaction was the art.

If John was in love with Yoko and wanted to write songs about her, what's the problem? One can buy or discard his records, it's his art after all and he could do what he wanted to do. I never cared about Yoko's art, but that doesn't define her as a person. What was her sin? Making John fall in love with her? And John wasn't perfect, is that a sin? At least John brought joy to the heart of many people, that doesn't make him a saint, but he was blessed with a gift and used it better than anybody.

What was her sin?

Where to start?

I think its a sin to cause a wedge between a son and a father especially when the relationship was strained to begin with.

I think its a sin to sleep with a married man and to display the atrocious act to the wife and child.

I think its a sin that she participated and probably even encouraged John to use heroin.

I think its a sin to encourage your husband to sleep with other women.
 
I think her musics a sin for sure.

etc,,,
