trauma why do u talk about the beatles as if paul was the leader, i always figured lennon was, somewhat?

It kind of depends on what you're talking about.  John was the 'leader' in a lot of ways, but Paul was in a lot of ways, too.  Two HUUUUUGE forces in music, John & Paul.  Paul, for instance came up with the idea for the Let It Be, and Sgt. Pepper's albums.  Paul came up with the Magical Mystery Tour.  Paul came up with the idea of sequencing the second side of Abbey Road like that... You gotta remember a lot of John's ideas were pretty fucking crazy, so they didn't utilize a lot of his stuff in the later days, because it was just too out there.  Look @ what he did after he left the Beatles.  I've seen concerts where YOKO sat on a stool blindfolded, showing signs to the crowd that had words like "Think" and "Wait" on them.

I'd consider John the leader in the early days (pre-Rubber Soul/Revolver) but after that it seemed like Paul took the lead. Look at how many Paul songs are on Sgt Pepper's, for example, as opposed to the number of lead John songs.


I kind of see it as a joint effort the whole way. What I know for sure is that John's solo stuff was far better than Paul's in my opinion.


Exactly, John was gnarly solo.
