I’m Looking Through YouTube (For Funny Beatles comments)

beatles-1969Some people’s favourite band have always generated vast amounts of personal opinion from the public. It seems inexhaustible and I am guilty of adding to it here. Paul gets bashed the most, but I found insults aimed at all four. OK, most people tend to overlook Ringo because of his limitations. Yes, it can be much fun to read strangers opinions on all this analyzing of Liverpool’s Fab Three (+ Ringo)…with add – ons from this blogger.

“Harrison didn’t lack self-awareness. He lacked the desire to drop Paul’s body off in the Thames. A desire I suspect most people would have had a hard time resisting if placed in his shoes.” True. Not only did George and John carry a grudge against McCartney until death, five members of Wings also walked out on Paul during the 1970’s. No smoke without fire.

“It is crazy how old he (John Lennon) looked when he died. He was only 40 but he looked like 60 or something. Nobody ever talks about that.” Interesting point. He did look haggard and possibly underweight in 1980. Maybe he was sixty on the inside when he passed away. But I’d defy anyone to live with Yoko for ten years and not look like death warmed up.

“Harrison was a bit of a Drama Queen himself. Lennon could be a Drama Queen. The only guy who wasn’t a drama queen at times was Ringo. Or maybe even Ringo had his Drama Queen moments, we just didn’t hear about them.” Oh, he had them alright. 

“Harrison was in a potentially tough spot emotionally in ’63-’67: far less talented than most of the other three guys in his own band, and being seen by the world to be. Worse singer, worse songwriter, and John and Paul were even both taking good guitar solos on some of the records sometimes, too…in a hard business, Harrison and Starr were treated very well. And Harrison was spoiled almost his whole life — he got to be the lead guitarist for John Lennon from age fourteen to age twenty-six, meeting girls in Hamburg largely because of the talent of two other guys, etc. — so he lacked perspective about how lucky he was.” George was John’s bitch and loved every minute of it. But he didn’t enjoy taking the bitch seat for Paul.

“John sounds like Kanye West talking about how hard it is to be a genius among mere mortals (Lol), but the art he made with Yoko was pure shit. His rant about having to be nice to “cripples” and obnoxious girls “with braces on their teeth”, people he hated since he was 10 years old, reveals his total narcissism and complete lack of empathy. Piece of shit is lucky Paul carried him on his back the whole time they were together. No surprise Paul was so much more successful than him after the Beatles split up.” It is disquieting how Lennon was so judgmental toward strangers who were children or seriously ill. Bad karma dude.

“Imagine if you’d never heard of Paul McCartney, and knew nothing of all the cultural baggage that comes with the name, and you saw this video. You’d think that this guy was a dick. I love the Beatles, but I’ve enough intelligence to separate my liking of someone’s work and the person. Come on mate, his ego is off the charts (like most of his music in the last 20 years).” Paul lacks the self-awareness necessary to know when he’s being overbearing with his peers. “A preening self regard” is how one observant person has described him.

bron     (The Feminist Beatles – after they kicked out John )

“Did George EVER stop whining when he was a Beatle?  Poor rich and famous me … I am such a victim … wah wah wah … and his fans are worse …biggest bunch of whiners on the planet,”  He was born to be bitter. Being surly and resentful of Paul in particular, and to a lesser extent the band’s legacy, actually gave George his identity. Using Indian culture was the other crutch he leaned on. And if he was really spiritual, why the 30 year unforgiving attitude toward Paul? He should have been above nursing old grievances. He did have a great pair of cheekbones though, and like John and Paul, was very photogenic.

“Hey, John, get a grip. You wanted to be treated like a “genius” as a young boy? Poor thing… life is hard.  And he probably wanted to be recognized as a great artist when he was 10 and be carried around like an Egyptian pharaoh. By the sound of it he had a bit of a messiah complex even before he became famous. I know he didn’t have it easy as a child but his views about how they didn’t just all know how brilliant he was is a little tough to listen to without wanting to gag.” Yes sir, Lennon was a lazy entitled bastard with delusions of grandeur.

“McCartney is so clueless that you almost feel sorry for him. Almost. I suppose that his peers need to give him a modicum of respect, but you know they hate every second of it.” Lol! Paul always gets the most criticism. Couldn’t be his granny music, or egomania could it? 

“Paul McCartney makes Alan Partridge look cool.” No comment.

“John Lennon was famous for dumping all over his Beatles mates. I’ve heard people with man crushes on John talk about his “honesty” and “courage.” Honesty and courage? Is that what you call it when you speak very disparagingly of your former mates, in public interviews, not giving a damn whose feelings you hurt or who you offend. John Lennon was a jerk. A TALENTED jerk, maybe even minor genius level, but a jerk, nevertheless.” He was still numero uno. And the other three knew it. George & Ringo hero worshipped John. And Paul has said he was still an admirer even when Lennon was shitting all over him in interviews.

“The Beatles was Lennon’s band, and Paul never got over that. So Paul has his affiliation with the Greatest Rock Band Ever as a feather in his cap, but’s John’s feather mostly.” In other words Paul was not even good enough to carry Lennon’s jockstrap. Why can’t some people learn decent English grammar and spelling before posting their insulting comments?

resized_beatlescapitol“The Beatles never broke up, they just kicked Paul out of the group. John, George and Ringo still played together, they just did it without Paul because he’s a dick head. John’s Imagine album – that’s a Beatles album. George played on it and so did Ringo although Ringo wasn’t credited because the press would have called it a Beatles reunion, but there’s plenty of videos of George playing on that album. The problem with Paul was he was never a really good songwriter unless John was helping him, which is why he hasn’t written one good song in the past 40+ years, and they just got fed up of having to play his shit songs over and over like “Maxwells Silver Hammer” or “Honey Pie” or “Obladi-Oblada” He would make them play those songs over and over for weeks on end which Lennon described as absolute torture which I can imagine, not to mention he was an arrogant douche always telling them what to do and play. He was always like that. In the Cavern the fans would refuse to ask for his autograph because he was such a show off. He’s just a dickhead, he still is, and playing in a band with a dickhead like that for 10 years is long enough which is why they finally kicked him out. He was like the Lars Ulrich of the 60s.” This guy just won the internet.

“Playing music together was never their problem.  Being in the same room together when they weren’t playing music was their problem.” Oooh, that hit our G spot. Smooth.

“Paul was the most commercial of the group. Saccharin-like personality. Phony as a three dollar bill.” This could be Lennon or Harrison…but wait! those words were uttered from the lips of Brian Epstein. Address: from some gay bar in the spirit world.

“John’s bitterness pours out of him. He’s not the least bit grateful for being a part of the greatest music act in the history of the world. John was preaching to us ‘all you need is love’ but he couldn’t even forgive Paul for just being who he was. Paul was a showman and he realized that was all he was. He didn’t think he was some great gift to humanity, just a really good musician. John was arrogant.” And don’t forget his messiah (or was it God?) complex!

“Elton John said: “‘Something’ is probably one of the best love songs ever, ever, ever written … It’s better than ‘Yesterday,’ much better … It’s like the song I’ve been chasing for the last thirty-five years.” Et tu, Elton? Who’d be Faul, eh? I mean, Paul. Bet he hated this comment. Bitch – slapped by one of his peers!

“Paul is pleasantly insincere.” Ringo Starr. He’s been closer to Paul than you or I ever could, so why say something like this if untrue? On the White Album Paul did play drums on a few tracks & maybe Ringo never forgave him. And on that Macca-bashing note, we must end.

    • James Paul McCartney has provided more laughs than any other rock star of the past 50 years. In 1993 he actually beefed up security when a well endowed stripper “threatened” to gatecrash his concert. I would have taken my chances sharing the stage with her! 🙂
