Here are some people who I think were rock stars.






Some others include Clapton, Townshend, Daltrey, Moon, Page etc Also the guy in my avatar  ;)


Moon is the king of rock stars. He perfected the rock star life style.  Either him or Keith Richards. But Keith Richards survived, so maybe he's not such a rock star after all!





Jim Morrison is beyond rock star. Jim Morrison is other worldly. There is no word for Jim Morrison.

I did a batik of this in high school. Still have it!

But where are the Ringoites?   :P

*raises hand* Ringo's my favorite!

Or do you mean a fan who thinks he's the best and the rest don't compare?

Because I'm not like that.

I'll bite, I guess.

Hey, Doctor: I'm picking on your post, not because I disrespect your opinion, but because you've offered a lot to think about.

The John/Paul camps formed from the beginning of Beatlemania, mostly among their young, female fans. I know because my ex-girlfriend at the time was a Johnny, not a Paulie. Even into her adulthood, John could do no wrong, Paul could do no right.

Two other things to consider:

1. John abdicated his position as "Chief Beatle" around the Sgt. Pepper's era. Blame it on anything you like (Yoko, drugs, Beatle-fatigue, etc.) But there was a power vacuum within the group. After Brain Epstein's death, who but Paul could step up and assume some kind of leadership. My wife commented on John's lack of interest in the "Let It Be" sessions (from the film) until...Billy Preston walked in with George. Suddenly, John takes over: "We need to get these instruments tuned", etc.

2. Compare Lennon's comments to Paul's comments in the post-breakup years in the early 70's. IMHO, John did a hatchet job on Paul in the press. A lot of people took sides with one or the other as a result.
