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.
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.
