Oh, no, John B Sails, never quote Lennon, he's way overrated. All his "Give peace a chance" was bullshit comming form a man who cheated on his wive and advandoned his son. What kind of peace could Cynthia or Julian have after he unadvertedly left?
And he wasn''t a great musician eighter, McCartney was the genious, the thing is Lennon was controversial, that's why he got all the spotlight. Just check the solo careers, Lennon had only "Imagine". McCartney started with the McCartney Album which rose to number one (Let it Be made it only to number four) and it included Maybe I'm Amazed, which was a hit. It was suposed to be a Beatles song but John didn't like it. Then comes Paul & Linda's single "Another Day" and then "Uncle Albert/Admiral Halsey" and the the album Ram and it's number one-non stop. Lennon couldn't handle it. And we're not talking about popish rubbish, mccartney's songs are great, just listen to Ram, it''s musically complex, weird but magical!
So, back to my point, don't quote Lennon. He kinda sucked. Have a great day!
