Paul simply recommended a fellow artist ask his partner. Nothing Bad about that.

Speaking of Yoko, after reading Paul's bio (His Life? I don't remember the name, darn it) about how they dealed with their girlfriends/wives (Paul cheated on Jane Asher, John on Cynthia) to avoid breaking up directly, I wonder.

 

Did John use Yoko to break up the Beatles? I mean, it's a fact that John considered himself the Beatles's boss. If he was tired of the Beatles, didn't he use Yoko to make the other guys get sick of him?

Mith, It's called Paul McCartney: A Life. I agree, but I think John still would have left at some point.

That's an interesting viewpoint, I've never thought of that - John hoping to break up the band in a kind of passive-aggressive way. Me, I like to imagine that he was hoping he could have it both ways: that he genuinely felt that Yoko could make a real contribution, that he could try and turn the others on to some of her avant-garde ideas that he was obsessed with at the time, thereby reviving his own interest in the band while keeping the others satisfied too.

One day, a tape-op got a tape on backwards, he went to play it, and it was all "Neeeradno-undowarrroom" and it was "Wow! Sounds Indian!"

Right, I think you nailed it Von. And once he saw that the others weren't so interested in following him down that avant garde path, he certainly tried to get out because the others were inhibiting his creativity by not going with some of those ideas. I don't think he intentionally used Yoko to get out of the band, but she was the main reason he left. He was quoted a few times in some of his last interviews that he had two creative partners, Paul and Yoko, and he had just moved on from him to her.

The End of Lennon-McCartney was inevitable, even without Yoko. John would have found someone else.

Oh that's true, no doubt. But maybe they could've kept it going longer than a couple of years.

As it is though, the fact that the breakup was right at the turn of the decade it makes for a nice end-of-an-era summing-up.

But without the Breakup, John doesn't do Primal Theropy, George doesn't release his masterpiece, and half of all the threads here wouldn't exist

Im not so keen on the woman yoko-ono-01 but without her John wouldnt of written some his love songs that were inspired by her (The Blallad of John and Yoko) and I guess, Yoko understanded John as they were both crazy (in a good way obviosly a-hard-days-night-george-10)  but the other Beatles just got fed up with her, she was a bit clingy a-hard-days-night-ringo-13 anyway i guess they made a cute couple. two-virgins a-hard-days-night-george-6heart

Well, maybe. But you wouldn't see Linda or Cynthia or Pattie making a record as cool as Fly (which I'm listening to right now!)

I don't mind Yoko's music. I really like "Yes I'm Your Angel" She and I have very similar vocal ranges which make her song enjoyable to sing.a-hard-days-night-ringo-10

It really depends on the day for me whether I hate her or not. Like today, I tolerrate her. And I'm not too keen on her music but  Walking on Thin Ice isn't terribly bad.

I've only ever listened to her music on John and her albums, and although I'm not so keen on her voice, I like alot of her songs on Sometime In New York City

I'm still on the positive side of the like/dislike line. If you were to liken it to a politician's approval rating I would say my approval rating of her is 55% with a margin of error of 10%. How's that for a strong backing?

As for her voice, I could go the rest of my life without hearing it. But that would mean not being able to hear some of John's solo stuff.  

Decisions, decisions...

I like Walking on Thin Ice. I like a remix that's over there. Very good stuff, you can see John's hand in there. Too bad all her music is not like that. I don't like screaming voices in music. a-hard-days-night-ringo-13
