I don't think Elton John and John playing I Saw Her Standing There evens out the balance.

Never. I would go to a concert just to see Pete Townshend take a dump on my face.

Yoko Dropped the McCartney credit from GPAC
Also I don't care as long as Yoko doesn't (as she doesn't appear to) care.

Personally, I have no issue with it. Who better to keep John's songs alive than a fellow Beatle?

And (although I hate to bring them into this) do you think the Jonas Brothers could do a better job?

It's all in the name of keeping the memory and the music alive.

Let's all be happy that we still have a Beatle gracing the stage!

Because the wind is high, it blows my mind.

I don't think so, but Paul thinks they're alright… nope, no, sorry. a-hard-days-night-paul-1 (Are they even that big of a deal any more?)

Ad hoc, ad loc, and quid pro quo! So little time! So much to know!

They are only relevant to the kids/grandkids of the original Beatles screamers of 45 years ago

I have no problem with Paul singing anyone's songs. For that matter, I have no problem with Ringo singing any songs written by John.

Actually, it would be kind of funny hearing Paul sing How do You Sleep? in concert.


Ha!  That would be great!  Somewhere I read that Paul's response to "How Do You Sleep?" was "On a big pile of money," but that's probably just folklore….

Brilliant!

I don't know if it's true either but it does sound like something he would say. It fits right in with the Beatles' cheeky sense of humor.

To the fountain of perpetual mirth, Let it roll for all its worth.

Can buy Joe love! If you're going to buy that song, album, or T-shirt anyway; please consider using these links to support the Beatles Bible: Amazon | iTunes

I wish I could have that same luxury…. :D

If I seem to act unkind, it's only me, it's not my mind that is confusing things.
