1.)Lennon
2.)Harrison
3.)Ringo
4.)McCartney

Replace him with just about any drummer and they'd have been exactly the same band minus a few song titles and an ill advised lead vocal here and there.

Idunno, man. Some of those few song titles are among the most enduring Beatles works of all time. It's the simplicity of them that does it, and the fact that a deaf person could wail along and still be pretty close that gives it immense karaoke potential.

I like all of Lennon's works. So therefore I like all his albums.

Lennon came up with some messed up shit after he left the Beatles. Seriously. Some was brilliant, like the song Imagine, but some of it was seriously down right crazy.

It's not that is was too much, I just didn't like it. Remember it's all about preference, don't persecute me my friend.

Who's persecuting? You are just literally the only person I've ever known who has anything more positive than disdain for that stuff. I'm not persecuting you, I'm just fucking surprised, man.

But then loads of people seem to love 'Revolution 9,' and to me that's just more of the same stuff.

Revolution 9 wasn't that good, I'm with you on that. I suppose i just love nearly everything John does, he's solo music was a lot more meaningful than any of the other Beatles which is possibly why I'm so drawn to most of it.

Lennon's song "God" from off of Plastic Ono Band is a pretty succinct summation of a large part of my beliefs on a higher being. So that song is kind of important to me.

I've always loved the off-beat explosion at the end of "Remember," too. I mean I love the whole album, but that moment always makes me laugh. (I know it fits, given he just mentioned the Nov. 5th plot, it's still just exceedingly random.)

I genuinely like the last four Macca solo records (not the classical ones, the pop ones, though Flaming Pie is an astoundingly bad album title).

Wings was shit outside of "Live & Let Die."

what i've heard from paul's solo stuff i couldn't call it bad exactly, but that's because i can't remember a single song off of them. i've heard the first one with him and his baby on the cover, and the most recent two.

The first one has, like, a plate with a red liquid in it or something. Some oriental imagery.

Whatever, it's not paul and his baby on the cover.

How did you even hear his last four records?! I can't imagine you've been buying them.

I used the public library and another thing that rhymes with "whore rents." Also, my friend works at a Chapters which has a Starbucks inside, and he managed to get a copy of the last one, which was on Starbucks' Hear Music label, for cheap.

Nigel Godrich produced his 2005 record which meant he actually had someone willing to critique his music working on it with him, and it shows. It's the best of the four by far.

you're right; i think its the back of the record sleeve that has him and his baby. it's just called McCartney isn't it?

That's the name of his solo debut, yeah. I thought it had two beetles fucking on the back but that might've been Ram.

Three guesses for what that symbolism must've been intended to convey.

Well I've got a magazine where he's interviewed that, and his response still makes me laugh, he said something like 'What? How could I convince two beetles to shag each other???'
