Its just a sad state of affairs that if ever a topic comes up about who did what and Paul is involved it becomes a matter of 'its Paul and everyone else is dead wrong for daring to think never mind write anything else and must be spoken down to for thinking anything else'. I know its going to happen as soon as the first post is made and so a sense of dread and heaviness comes.

I know that folk are out there who think the same for John, George and Ringo and they irritate me as much as those who do it for Paul. Heck i cant bear Yoko and her marketing of John as a saint and flogging Imagine at every opportunity on every possible product/piece of tat.

And apologies to all for my posts above, i want this place to be peaceful and respectful as much as anyone, its one of the great things about the site.

Agree with all you say. Been reading lots of threads since discovering site and certain things do happen when Thumbs Aloft gets a mention. I don't think there's any need for apologies from you. This thread was only thrown off by one person's attitude. If you note my post above you're not the only one who disagrees with HofnerViolin's approach to matters Mac.

(I mean paulsbass obviously! Hope there isn't actually a HofnerViolin on here somewhere who I've just accidentally dissed.

Im waiting for the "Best Beatle Drummer - Ringo v Paul" thread where its claimed Pauls drumming on Back On The USSR, Dear Prudence, Ballad of Joko and a few others give him the edge but its damn close. Dont forget Paul suggested the drums on Ticket To Ride.a-hard-days-night-paul-3

How about we just set up a paulsbass thread where he is allowed to be 110% right, and we can disagree venomously but let him win, but on everything else he has to stick to it being his opinion and not the word of God?

Hell, I can point to two quotes from McCartney where the facts show McCartney got it wrong.

But this is meant to be a thread about the "yeah's" at the end of WMGGW!

stay-on-topic

George! George! George! (95% sure). Might be Macca.

I don't think anyone was trying to drive you from site, and hope you'll reconsider. I've said elsewhere in this thread that some of your contributions are great, but that where you disagree with others opinions, you should stick to "I believe" rather than "I'm a 110%" right.

 

There's things I believe I'm dead right on, but stick to offering my contributions as opinion and not fact.

 

Your attitude would make more sense were we talking about a lead vocal, but background vocals aren't always as clear as all that. We should be able to debate here, and not get caught up in I'm right and you're wrong.

 

I apologise if you found me too aggressive in my reactions to what was happening between yourself and meanmistermustard. I just believe he had a valid point. If you hadn't made the "110%" comment things would have turned out differently.

 

A couple of points on your assumptions though. I am a great lover of McCartney. I do not believe the band would have existed and had the impact they did without him. I believe that, for a few glorious years, the sun shone out of all their asses. Possible I'm a nutjob, but I'm not a nutjob who claimed George was a better bass player than Paul (or could ever think that). Teenie? I wish. I had my twenty-first birthday when you were fourteen. If you were thrice my age, that would make 135!

 

This is, however, an olive branch. All people seemed to me to be asking was that as sure as you are of your opinion, you allow others theirs. Reading through the various threads over the past few months (I was exploring the site long before I joined) many of your contributions have been insightful and informative. It's just that sometimes... and last night people reacted to one of those sometimes.

 

I for one would be saddened to see you leave the forum, and hope you change your mind.

 

Best wishes. Peace and love.

You make this sound like a silly opinion, but is it so ridiculous to prefer Paul as a drummer? I prefer Ringo by miles but just because Paul played on less songs doesn't mean you can't prefer his drumming style. I'm sure there are some people who have listened to the songs you mentioned, and the drumming on his solo/Wings work, and thought "hey he's actually a really good drummer, I reckon he's superior to Ringo!" What's the point in having discussion if one opinion is categorically wrong? I have great respect for what you are saying, as I do with paulsbass, and I see where you are coming from- it is annoying. But with this it seems you're exhibiting the same thing you're setting out to criticise.
