I think this debate has been much ado about nothing.

Some people got onto a bandwagon. Some people (ahem!) had a fight with the originator of the debate.

But in the end, it was still Our John!

no its definately My Paul.

There's only one way to be sure:

Ask Paul.

Anyone here knows his phone number?

Trouble is, these days Paul would give the answer painting him in the best light, and John in the poorest.

Sadly, there's every need for that assumption. If you've been following Paul's takes on Beatles matters, you'll realize that for 20 years now he has increasingly put himself over at the expense of John. Read Barry Miles' book, for instance, and cringe at the arrogance of McCartney. Always helping John with his songs (but hardly ever admitting the other way), contributing essential bits, being more "avante garde" than John, and so on.

Well it must be selective reading you got goin there. Always question the source.
Have you read any comments by George MArtin? Surely he is the authority on this kinda thing. It strikes me that you can hear the input each have put in from the songs themselves.
Your bias towards John makes you feel that about him. OK, it's your thing. Do what you gotta do.
Paul likes attention, no 2 shakes about it but again you doth protest too much!! lol

My bias is towards truth, not John or Paul or anything else.

I go to Miles' book because that had Macca's imprimatur.

It strikes me that you can hear the input each have put in from the songs themselves.
On the contrary, it strikes me that you often can't. People like to think they can, but that's delusion. And that allows Macca to paint himself in a more favorable light.

McCartney may have gotten defensive or overly zealous because of the GOD image that John's fanatical fans have given him. It was starting to get to the point where it was John's band and John was the creative genius and John was the Beatles soul and Paul was the fluff. I'd be annoyed too if I were reduced to that after being a HUGE part of the most successful band of all time. I think he acted like most people would have in that situation. Even John. John who made claims just as egotistical before his death. Can't you see both sides?

I totally agree, bad enough Macca has to compete with himself, but also with John's deified memory.

You mean what YOU think is true? A truth from a book? I am speaking from a musicians point of view when I made that comment about their inputs. I don't believe that it is that far-fetched an idea. Contrary to your beliefs, it seems you like to think you can't.
Well, in some songs you have a point but generally they are singing on their own tunes. I.e. Their own concepted ideas/chords. Notice I say, GENERALLY.
Anyway, it was more Paul bashing on your behalf, you can never resist. They both had great input, one not overshadowing the other. It's your kind of nit-picking that raises this whole Paul is be-littling Lennon's legacy that I find un-healthy in Beatle fans. I certainly would'nt say I was deluded either.
Again, I find myself balancing the negativity of your opinions on Paul. Theres no more painting to be done regards Beatles. It is all done and there to see, no matter what each man wants to say in their own auto-biographies. Unsurprisingly they generally talk about.....wait for it......themselves!

Anyways, surely it has been established that they were both rather good. That'll do for me.
