Well, the point is sure about certain aspects of the artists' personal private life, but if they write songs that are inspired by their loved ones, or hated ones in some cases, and if their lives are an open book to the public, than shouldn't discussions about that be just as much fair game as say what makes you like this song better than this other song?
Or at the very least, able to give answers that aren't pithy "This is childish and silly to even discuss
" one sentence type of responses to people who give well documented examples of their dislike for Heather Mills, Linda McCartney, Paul McCartney, Yoko Ono, John Lennon, Cynthia Lennon, Jane Asher, Olivia Harrison, Barbara Bach or whomever else happens to catch the ire of fandom in a thread discussion.
