I would rather go on a 3 day trip to the city of my choice. I may love a person's music, but the person may end up being mean and make me have a bad time.

Julian Lennon's music or Sean Lennon's music?

Not heard much of Seans and no real interest either. Have heard only a few things of Julians, the Valette LP being one and it wasnt great but Too Late For Goodbyes and the 1992 Salt Water are both very very good so Julian.

 

Music as it comes or overdubbed, edited at al (have a few Get Back tracks on thanks to a different thread)?

Wine is a bit lighter than spirits so you can ingest a lot more than usual, it's also healthier!.

Little Richard or Chuck Berry?

Hmmm. Lettermans guest list, but Jay Leno as host.. Mainly for that kick-ass chin, and his car collection, lol. Dave's ok I suppose, comes off as very cheesy to me sometimes.. New writers perhaps? 

 

Tea or Coffee?

Public transport without a shadow of a doubt. I do not ever intend to learn to drive; I can get around just fine by foot and on trains and buses, in my own little world with my headphones in.

Shakespeare or Dickens?

I'm Down

I don't think this has been asked yet, so...

George as a Beatle or George's solo career?

Geometry, wisdom, tangerines... "The time is gone, the song is over, thought I'd something more to say..."

Also known as Egg-Rock, Egg-Roll, E-George, Eggy, Ravioli, Eggroll Eggrolli...

Purple stuff... ellipses...

Productivity wise, George did a lot more post-career, can't help that though, he has freedom. But I got to admit some of his best works were while with the Beatles.

 

Pete Townshed or Jimi Hendrix? (on-stage gimmicks)

Hmm. Did George in his solo career release 20-or-so songs as good or better in cumulative quality than his 20-odd Beatles originals? Maybe; I've heard no more than a dozen examples of his post-1973 output. But, crucially, none of his solo songs featured John, Paul and Ringo as fellow performers. So, Beatles over solo for me.

EDIT: Sorry, Gerell beat me to it!
So, assuming we're talking about onstage antics ALONE without regard for the music...I'll have to give it to Pete, reluctantly, since Jimi's music means WAY more to me than The Who (as great as they often were.) Hendrix admittedly stole the guitar-smashing gimmick from Townshend, and he actually did it much, much less frequently. Also, Pete probably did it with a lot more conviction. Jimi did it merely as a calculated effort to draw publicity early on, and grew to hate having to do it to please audience members who apparently didn't care what he played, so long as he did it with his guitar between his legs as if it were a giant you-know-what. -And that naturally made him unhappy, and he took more and more drugs to keep the unhappiness at bay; and the result was the second-greatest tragedy in rock history. (And the SINGLE biggest tragedy as far as music alone was concerned, says me: He had more great songs left in him than our beloved John. I truly believe that, sorry...) Jimi's onstage gimmicks helped to kill him, in other words, and so I've no choice but to condemn them and declare Townshend the winner. (And even at that, Pete never did anything as epic and legendary as Jimi did at Monterey.)

Von Bontee forgot to ask a new one -- so I'll do the honors:

Either/Or, or Both/And?

Either/Or because you can do more than a quantity of two, while both/and is restricted only to a quantity of two.

 

This one is for guitarists:

Les Paul Gibson or Fender Stratocaster? (ROFL GOOGLE SPELL CHECK treats it as Castrato)

Hahaha, first Gerell beats me to it; then before I explain my belated answer, FunnyPaper beats me to it!

Anyway, I was gonna say "Friends or Family?" So how about a compromise:

"Friends or Family" or "Ether/or' OR "'Both/And'"
:D
