Pepper and Abbey Rd the defining moments![/quote]
Maybe not the actual 'defining' moments, but perhaps their most recognized and critically acclaimed work. I apologize for my choice of words.
Mr TKITNA, you and I will not get along.
Sure we will. Why shouldnt we? I dont feel as though we're arguing. Strickly a debate.
The Beatles were not a boy band, I can assure you of that.
Another bad choice of words on my part. They were not a boys band in the respect that they actually played their own instruments and had talent enough to write and create music. A 'POP' band would be a better definition during their early years.
Abbey is too late in their career to be a defining moment. Good tho parts were, Abbey is too patchy in any case.
I think we're in agreeance about the defining moment aspect and i'm also in agreeance with you about the patchy segments of the album as a whole. My point is that Abbey Road was the slickest Beatle album ever produced and was important as a fitting end to the band. John didnt have much input in this album as he was fedup, in love, and just plain lazy. Paul rallied the troops for one last trip and i'm glad he did. For the band to go out with 'Let It Be' would have been a crime. They were better then that and 'Abbey Road' allows the world to see it.
Pepper had a big Paul push, but that was only in the emphemeral stuff. But John's Pepper music is better than Paul's, as far as I'm concerned.
To each his own about the John and Paul thing. I'm a 'Revolver' man myself.
Why do Paul's fans hate any attempt to have a serious discussion about him, that touches any criticism?
I'm a huge Paul fan as well as a John fan, George fan, Ringo fan, ect,,,and i'll be the first to admit that Paul is egotistical, a fairly bad lyricist, a glory hog, a shrewd business person, will do anything for the quick buck, and he has definately put out some crappers along with his excellent stuff. How was that?
I guess 'Paul' fans just want to assure the 'John' fans that he wasnt perfect either, but why should I go and list his negative aspects that are already known by everybody anyways? Its not about that. I guess since Johns death, Pauls been the only one here to answer for everything. Maybe he deserves a break once in awhile too.
