D.Mok, I'll say this and and simply "let it go" since it's getting disappointingly obvious that you have no intention of respecting anyone's opinions around here other than your own....if I'm wrong, I apologize...but that is how you tend to come across.
I am, very admittedly, a huge Beatle fan. I think the Lennon dominated material had as much to offer as the McCartney dominated material...oftentime in very different ways Their biggest strength was how near-perfectly they complemented one another. But I'm getting predictable here; I'm not saying anything that hasn't been written about endlessly and which I'm sure you're aware of (albeit disagree with).
That said, neither The Beatles as a band or as solo artists (including Lennon) are the end-all and be-all of music-sixties or otherwise. They simply happen to be number one in my particular book..and, "they", encompasses their overall catalog as a group. There were times when McCartney clearly outshone Lennon as well as the other way around (again...in MY opinion).
While I don't feel anywhere nearly as strongly about their solo output, I've remained faithful and have taken the good, the great and the horrendous (I will grant you that one of Rock's lowest creative moments from any major artist was the Some Time in NYC album which Lennon recorded with Yoko during, I believe to be, the most naive period of his-or anyone's- entire career).
I have no problem with you hating Lennon-for whatever reasons-as long as you have no problem with me, generally speaking, liking him. And along with that, just as I have no intention of putting you down for your thoughts and feelings, I expect the same from you for mine.
Does that sound even remotely fair enough?
