• Neil Peart on Lennon's & McCartney's Solo Careers

    From Norbert K@21:1/5 to All on Wed May 18 05:49:41 2022
    "After [the Beatles'] breakup, Lennon wrote a vicious song about McCartney called 'How Do You Sleep?', and that angry ad hominem attack ('Those freaks was right when they said you was dead/The one mistake you made was in your head') showed the depth of
    his contempt for his former partner. Although McCartney went on to produce some good work of his own (Ram, particularly), it is interesting that neither of their solo efforts seemed even half as good as the Beatles. Despite their differences, and Lennon'
    s wish to follow an artist's vision, they seemed to feed each other."
