I certainly agree that there was more good than bad in John, but that it all made him into a compelling whole. And it’s clear he’d evolved and changed his way of thinking of many things, and was continuing to at the time he was cruelly cut down, and that the world was robbed of what his further evolutions would’ve brought us.

It also somewhat irks me when some people try to revise history and especially say no one ever thought of John as an activist prior to his assassination or that no one listened to The Beatles or really missed them before December 8, 1980, which we know simply is not remotely true. And it all comes from these people who refuse to admit that the househusband account is essentially true.

But I love all parts of all four of them: John’s tendency towards biting sarcasm and verbal cruelty mixed with his generous spirit and irrepressible blunt honesty (though occasionally mixed with his storyteller’s art to be more like out of a novel or screenplay rather than necessarily how it REALLY happened), Paul’s genuine kindness and careful thought mixed with his steely resolve and tendency to stand his ground even when it’s unpopular, George’s dry wit and wordplay mixed with his pithy wisdom and spiritualism, and Ringo’s infectious childlike demeanor and his devotion to spreading positivity to all of us mixed with a certain irony in how he carries himself. I love every part of them, the good, the bad, and everything in between, because it’s what made The Beatles into The Beatles, even when they were no longer together as such.
