Yeah that dentist should spend less time on trying to make John clones using his tooth, and more time using his money to build a time machine to send all the Beatle Bible guys back to form some kind of John train.

I think with clones though, they’ll look different and have different personalities most likely – could have a bi John clone, a trans John clone, a straight John clone etc.

You know when John was always late and the last to arrive at the Let It Be sessions? Yeah, he was with me. That’s the true reason why Yoko would try and never leave his side.

I was recently listening to the “Different Kind of Mind” podcast, the “Pizza and Fairytales” series.  They openly speculate that John was in love with Paul, wanted to have sex with him, and perhaps even underwent conversion therapy to cure his homosexuality (under the guise of a smoking cure, that May Pang wrote about at the end of their relationship).  They have reasons to back up their thoughts, though not all of them are reliable.  

I wouldn’t go so far as to say John was bisexual.  If I were to guess, I’d describe him as bi-curious.  If he did give in to experimentation in it, I don’t think it was very often.  As the aforementioned podcasters pointed out, it’s hard to believe that if he had, no one has come forward to claim it.

I heard this too, it was an interesting listen and the 2 presenters are both convinced that John was deeply in love with Paul and state their case pretty well over the series. 

John seems to me to have been clearly bi-sexual through the balance of his life, even if he did struggle with it at times he was also fairly relaxed about it too at others. 

I didn’t know Paul and John bought each other cats name thisbe and pyramus…… the plot thickens LOL.

I always wonder why the question is always whether John had gay leanings, and not whether Paul does?

Oh yeah, the living can sue over untruths about them and the dead can’t.

I, an 85 year old man, personally had sex with John Lennon in a public toilet just off the M6 in 1967 – can confirm he had gay leanings.

 I find them interesting too, they have a unique approach, but I don’t always agree with them.  I’ve listened to several other of their episodes, and I can say that there are a few reasons to be skeptical of their conclusions.  First off, one of the women is self professed LGBTQ.  I’ve found that people of that persuasion are quicker to see that trait in others.  And secondly, they are both very, very heavily biased toward Paul.  So maybe it’s natural for them to see Paul as an object of affection.

I don’t think it’s that mysterious.  John has said and done a lot of things over the years that might rouse some suspicion, and frankly, Paul has not.  There have also been people making such claims about John, but not Paul, whether or not they are actually credible.  For instance, to give an outlandish example:  Prior to 1980, no one claimed that John was dead, but some claimed that Paul was dead.  Because that was the reported rumor.

Though many of the rumours around John are based on the idea of him and Paul being involved, or there being an attraction at the least, and Paul has more than once dismissed the idea that John had gay leanings, usually with the line that if anyone would know if John was that way inclined it would be him.

The rumours around John’s sexuality involve Paul, and Paul dismisses them.

Isn’t this one of those very many occasions, like with Paul being dead, where no matter what is said regarding denials those who want to believe it will regardless?

People post John had a sexual relationship with Paul and are quite strong on that belief putting up so much so called evidence (stuff they have created from wherever), Paul’s own denial is then put forward as a rebuttal yet it’s merely swotted aside with something akin to “well, what else would he say!?” 

It’s a discussion therefore that will never end. There are two people involved: John is dead so cannot say there was or wasn’t (yet admitted to so much when alive but never this), Paul says no they didn’t yet no one is willing to believe it – well, maybe it was never consumed or acted upon by John.

And on you go.

Tho my guess is that when Paul is gone a whole load of complete bullshit will start to be written as he cannot stand against it.

I have no problem believing John was bi-curious at least.

Paul, no way. Would he not he have been exceptionally jealous of John taking Brian to Spain, if that were the case? Pre-Linda Paul was a skirtchaser. I don’t know whether Paul having such a pretty feminine face is a factor in people’s fantasies…

I I think my biggest problem with the McLennan idea is that it’s certainly reduces every single universal love song that either of them wrote into a single extended love song between two people to one another. It’s impossible for us mere mortals to relate to: Who among us could imagine both being beatle #2 AND being in love with beatle #1!

I don’t believe for one second John had a sexual relationship with Paul.  And I’m sure very few people believe it.  There simply isn’t any evidence to suggest such a thing.  Even the podcasters I mentioned above did not suggest it.  They did seem to think John might have entertained some romantic feelings toward him at times, but didn’t act on them.  But like vonbontee said above, I don’t have any trouble at all believing John was at least a little bi-curious, some of his words and behaviors would suggest that IMO.  That just doesn’t exist with Paul.
