I'd have to say Yoko. Because she and John were proof that personality is what really matters. Yoko wasent exactally a beauty queen, but John didnt care. He loved her for her and that shows that guys dont just like the slutty girls, they love them for being them. And Yoko and John are perfect exampels of that.two-virgins

A few things
1. Yes Maureen Starkey did retain the last name and yes Yoko is Yoko Ono Lennon so there
2. What was added from Memoir #1 to Memoir #2 (just wondering)
3. She did seem to be very helpful in somewhat reconnecting John and Julian
Finally 4. Did Lennon need to cheat on Chynthia with Yoko so much? It reaks of Overkill
Sorry to inspire such feelings
And please tell me the differences to Her two memoirs

Well the memoirs were written like 30 years apart, so that should tell you right there that she didn't just write them for the money. If she were in it for money, we'd have a whole installment. I haven't read the first one, but if I had to guess I would say it's probably a bit more bitter because it was written before John was murdered and just about a decade after he left her. I really enjoyed the second one, it was interesting because she didn't really delve into too many details of the Beatles at all, it was more of an analysis of why her and John's relationship didn't work. She didn't seem overly upset with John, and you can tell that she had a lot of love for him even after all he did to her. It's sort of crazy to read her perspective of how John and Yoko got together, it's almost like Yoko put him under a trance or something.

I've read them both, though I haven't had a copy of A Twist Of Lennon for many years and can't remember too much about it.

In the introduction to John I think she says she wrote the book because she didn't have the courage to say certain things when writing the first book, and time had given her perspective on events. I think the second book was less emotional, more subjective, and Cynthia wasn't trying to put so much of a spin on events. She seems prepared to confront the bad stuff.

That said, I don't think it's a particularly riveting read. The impression I came away with was that she's a bit too nice, lacked too much self-analysis, and missed out a lot of the interesting information. The early part of their relationship is well documented, then she hurtles through 1963-1967 as if it all took place in a week. There's little sense of what life was like at Kenwood, Lennon's relationship with Julian, Beatlemania, and what must have been one of the weirdest life changes anyone went through in the 1960s. There are bits and pieces that are well written but the whole thing is a bit too boring and polite.

Please don't spoil my day; I'm miles away

Hello this is my first post so please go easy on me x

My favourite Beatle girl is without doubt Linda, im a massive fan of hers even without any Beatle connection.

As a life long vege, i never had much variety of food until Linda brought out her food range (a long time before Quorn etc,) There must be thousands of veges that without her would of given in.

I have mixed feelings about Yoko, i love that she made John so happy and helped him to express his innermost feelings. However it does get on my nerves when watching or listening to interviews with John and it becomes all about her, i know thats unkind as what she had to say about peace was beautiful and made absolute sense. (i have just talked myself round to her again!!)

As for the prettiest it would have to be Jane, she is stunning in Alfie.

So many vegetarians! I might start a thread so I can ask all of you about the best products, recipes, etc.

But back on topic, I have a great deal of respect for Linda.

I agree with you Joe, but I just think that Cynthia herself is that kind of a person, maybe a bit too polite. She made it very clear in the book that she likes to avoid confrontation at all times, so maybe that's what her mindset was when she wrote the book. She wanted to avoid confrontation with herself.

I think Linda had the most solid combination of making Paul happy and not interfering The Beatles' studio work (asides from maybe trying to get him to make her brother their manager).  I personally like Cynthia, Linda, and Olivia the most.

 

Oh, and I'd totally tap that 64 year old ass.

No one, I think, is in my tree; I mean, it must be high or low.

I've said it before and so I say it again - for me it's Julia Lennon – hands down – in the tragic way of life she
inspired more beautiful music than we could ever imagine.

 

Tell me the beatle girl who's done more.

Hola!

I'm new, obviously but have decided to give my 2cents.

Personally I am not a fan of Julia Lennon.

As for the gfs/wives my list is

1. Olivia Harrison-she saved his life and anyone that can produce a work of art like Dhani is cool with me

2. Linda

3. Barbara Bach

4. Yoko Ono-I admire her for her guts and determination to never conform.

I never liked Jane Asher though I do like that she refused to stay at home like Paul wanted, and Patti Boyd was all kinds of beautiful!

I also like Pattie. I actually used to look like her, but then I got braces to fix that.

Jane and Cynthia because in my opinion they're the perfect balance between internal and outside beauty.

Re the bit about Yoko in interviews: YES! So annoying! I've been saying that for years. I can't stand her at all. People want to hear John,not your incessant ramblings. Thumbs up from me Georges Girlpaul-mccartney-thumb_gif

I guess I respect Olivia a good deal. She seems genuinely cool and she's also surprisingly aesthetically charming when you see her a bit.

Linda also has kudos from me, mostly because Paul always seemed so devoted to her and I figure he was on to something. She's not terribly graceful in interviews but she seemed lovely in real life.
