your opinion carries weight within yourself... everyone else thinks you excrete from your fingertips
You can always tell wanna-be's apart from real music fans when they diss Paul McCartney.
Most people who diss Paul McCartney don't have the slightest understanding of anything he's accomplished, as this thread proves.
Right. Because he 'was the brains and ears behind the tape loops on John's Tomorrow Never Knows', and he liked to listen to Stockhausen.
Wow! Sir Paul McCartney. How rock 'n roll. He's an establishment fossil and is probably on personal terms with Prince Charles and the Queen.
Sorry, but that shit just isn't impressive.
If you "don't care" about his accomplishments, this only proves that you are proud to be an ignoramous. What's the fucking point of this stupid thread then? To prove what an arrogant ass you are when it comes to one of the greatest, most accomplished musicians who has ever lived?
It has nothing to do with George Bush, moron. Stick to writing your lame critique threads. It's fun to watch people act stupid.
You're an IDIOT.
Whatever you say tough guy.
JWBusher has nothing to do with George Bush? Interesting.
You realise this isnt the MT right?
I'm not talking about the past. I'm talking about what he's done as an individual in the past 40 years. The fact is, he's done nothing of any worth.
Uh huh but Lennon wasn't going around talking about how innovative and avant-garde he was, I'm sure he knew damn well his Two Virgins type albums were pure shite. McCartney thinks he's a genius. He's not, he wrote some good pop songs over 40 yeard ago. He's actually preparing to release a song that was neither good enough for release at the time, nor was it good enough for inclusion on their odds-and-sods Anthologies, because the other members deemed it to be self-indulgent crap. Now he thinks it's worthy of release because it will, in his own words, show how experimental he has always been.
He's so far up his own arse it's unreal.
As far as I'm concerned Lennon was the driving force behind the Beatles. McCartney was no Keith Richards, and he's proven that by being completely irrelevant since the Beatles broke up.
So what you're saying is that we should all be reverential and admiring of him because of what he was a part of 40 years ago? Maybe he deserved that kind of attention back then but now he's just a has-been.
He's had 40 years in which to cement his own individual legacy, and what's he done? Fuck all.
No, like I said, you are the one who thinks I think a lot of myself. If you think you know someone from a message board, you probably need to get out more mate
I'll just say I'm pretty sick of having everything I post disregarded as "arrogance" and "elitism" by a person who embodies these character traits with delight and vigour.
I'm not talking about the past. I'm talking about what he's done as an individual in the past 40 years.
you're not talking about the past... but you want to know what he's done as an individual in the past 40 years?
'The past' I was referring to was specifically that of the Beatles.
the Frog Chorus...
That was a great kids' tune. I could never understand why people disparaged it. Critics looked like imbeciles who were unable to determine when a song is written for youngsters. What were they expecting? Proust?
Unfortunately, some people do their best work early rather than at the end of their lives. It probably sucks for him to know that too.
It's opinion though isn't it? Paul might think performing with his wife was as important and personal as performing with John Lennon & co. I don't buy into this juvenile tom-foolery of "best work". Paul McCartney more than likely views his solo projects as being different and equally unique to him as anything he did as a band member of The Beatles.
It becomes a pointless exercise of moronic stupidity of the highest degree! It becomes an argument based on "fact" not "opinion" and then the topic becomes locked, someone cries wolf amongst the sheep and the Admin has a power trip and starts banning backsides with immediate effect citing a lack of obedience to the forum decree.
I have to confess that I thoroughly enjoyed Mull of Kintyre, this in my humblest opinion is as legendary as any of Ringo Starr's hits with The Beatles. I can see the mist rolling in from the sea.
You assume whatever you like, I do play the piano, but I don't consider myself a musician, I wouldn't treat a beautiful creation with utter contempt and disrespect.
Criticism is designed to bring a person's well being into disarray and to plunge their future into a sea of a dark and morbid abyss. Why would I care what the Rolling Stones Magazine or some douchebag from the New York Times thinks about an album or an artist I like? I forge my opinion(s) and I keep it to myself without the need to gain attention for my non-benevolent cause.
The latter paragraph made my heart weep endlessly, it was a speech as fitting as one echoed by Winston Churchill. "We shall go on to the end, we shall fight in the record stores, we shall fight on the streets and in the classroom, we shall fight with growing confidence and growing strength in the air, we shall defend our right to criticise someone's efforts arrogantly and pompously, whatever the cost may be,we shall fight on the beaches, we shall fight on the landing grounds, we shall fight in the fields and in the homes of every non passionate man, we shall fight in the hills; we shall never surrender and if, we may lose this fight then our friends in Uzbekistan will launch heavy artillery into upper quarters of the Strumming Gnome's dwelling.
The Internet is a very serious business indeed, it can be a life and death situation. http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/worldnews/article-1079348/British-man-shot-dead-ex-husband-woman-met-internet.html
