I read a book called A Fault in The Stars one afternoon. My daughter discarded it and I picked it up and had a quick read. I nearly gave up on it as it was bringing me down. The lead, a teenage girl, had terminal cancer. Regardless I thought I owed it to the people actually going through this to tough it out.
It was a good book, it unexpectedly left a mark on me I guess as about six months later I wrote a song called Quiet Girl based on Hazel, the lead character first meeting Augustus , her soon to be BF.
I have thought deeply about this, switching sides more than once. I even declared it a tie (which is a cop out so that got ditched immediately). Then came along, Get Back the Netflix Documentary and it changed my mind slowly.
I do think John and Paul are equally gifted song writers. I love Strawberry Fields but Paul’s Sgt Pepper get’s a ten too. Paul brought the funk with Paperback Writer and John with Come Together. They went toe to toe on all genres and created Rock Pop as we know it today, even-stevens right?
Wrong. The clincher came when I realised Paul was the one that kept the Beatles together. He fought for the love of music and his bandmates and he won.
Because of Paul we have Let it Be and Abbey Road. Sorry John but Paul get’s it from me.
7:28 IMO Thought is the enemy of flow and more specifically improv IMO. I must attest to this as apparently , I am told by my drummer, the best solo I ever played was at WKD live in Camden. Unfortunately I can’t remember it because I had chronic food poisoning and was delirious at the time Q.E.D. I guess?
