    At least Ringo isn't riding one. The third lamest Beatle is a Beatle nonetheless.

    i gotta admit i used to diss paul too... but ive been listening to those anthologies.. and his demo of "she came in through the bathroom window" is pretty nuts...its amazing to me he recorded that in the 60s... im starting to realize he had some great songs... john had his share of dumb songs too.. the whole "sir" thing is ******** though

    Oh, don't get me wrong, I love Paul. He's had a few really solid solo records, but let's be honest, John and George didn't record "Ebony and Ivory," nor are they responsible for Wings.

    no.. but john died.. and was doing lots of drugs.. who knows where he was gonna go in the 80s... i have a feeling it would have been pretty ugly also

    but then again.. i think paul wrote most of "when im 64"... i think thats one of the worst songs ever

    paul is the true soul of the beatles, john was a good front man and yoko needs clinging onto her only claim to fame, which was marrying john.

    In my opinion, George was the greatest Beatle. Sure, he didn't write as much, but when he did, it was pure genius. "Something" is one of the best songs ever written and his solo catalogue blows both John's and Paul's out of the water.

    Paul "You Gotta Fight For Your Right to Freedom"* McCartney on a fixie? Well, folks, it's been a good run, but I suppose it's back to derailleurs and two brake levers for me.

    * in case anyone forgot, McCartney wrote this one to cheer along the US invasion of Afghanistan:

    Paul McCartney - Freedom

    i'd say this puts a definitive end to all discussions over whether or not the fixie thing has jumped the shark.

    paul macartney on a fixie in rolling stone == massive shark jumpage.

    dudes -- seriously -- I understand the slagging on Paul. He's the sweet, dorky, goodie-two-shoes Beatle... BUT, you know what else? He was/is a freaking MUSICAL GENIUS people! Give the guy some slack. Not only was his songwriting stellar, he was also an amazing musician who could play pretty much every instrument. Man, check that guitar solo on "Taxman". ***** is badass. Sure he plays the Superbowl now. Whatever. Don't hate on a guy who has one of the most impressive bodies of work of ANY ARTIST ever.

    It's funny, I LOVE the Beatles, I just hate John, Paul, George and Ringo. 99.9% of any of their solo stuff is pure horse****, except for "Photograph"(-Ringo,) and "Say Say Say"(-McCartney/Jackson[!]) And modmon has perhaps the greatest avatar of all time.

    On the subject of avatars, krispistoferson's is pretty funny. Modmon's kinda scares me. Really.
