I don't think he 'needed' to do it as such, it was supposed to be a private response - I think John was just annoyed  that Dylan felt we all had to "serve somebody".

yeah he was annoyed that one of his 'once heroes' was saying everyone has to serve someone, and he thought the opposite that everyone needs to serve themself, as a private joke/response to dylans song.dont forget it was never intended for release until 'yokeeey' came along...

I love this song. Man, does he lay it on. One thing Yoko couldn't take from him was his incredibly creative mind. Brilliant.

It may not have been ever intended for release by "Yokey" or whatever you called her... but I think she deserves thanking for bringing it to the public as a documentary of John during his private life and gives us more insight into the man and not just the songs that were released during his lifetime.

Remember without "Yokey"... Yoko we would not have heard "Real Love" ANY version of it! She does well with Lennons estate and I think she deserves a lot more respect, the only thing I thought was a bit dodgy was the "Acoustic" album... but then again she did say it was only intended as a Japan release only but the US label said they should release it all over.

Yeah, yeah, enough about Yoko.


Anyway, I pretty much second what lennonlegend said. Great post, man.

I didn't disagree with him about Lennons reasons for the song, I disagreed with the Yoko comment, and how can you say enough about her when I was addressing Johns music and that it wouldn't be heard without her, so she deserves thanks especially for the song in question.

Okay, it's just that we have a thread about Yoko already. I wasn't trying to be a b**** or anything.

It just shows what kind of insecure @sshole John could be. As other people have said, who was he to belittle or question somebody elses beliefs or faith?

Don't we all question these things privately?

My theory is, live and let live. It really p*sses me off when people critize my faith so I never do it to others.

Exactly! Why did John feel that he had to ridicule somebodys faith out in the open? I think it made him look like a jerk. He wasnt to keen on Dylan anyways and I think it was a personal attack. Nothing unusual for john.

I thought for sure I put you on there. A thousand apologies, consider it modified. Then again, after comparing me to a certain member who shall remain nameless, it should be your penance.
