Better to know and admire someone’s real essence The shining cartoon poster (warts and all) than to admire a fiction. John the remarkable man, but not John the messiah. Aren’t we lucky they became friends and musical partners?!
The shining cartoon poster
I also believe Lennon was the more sensitive of the two, and was hurting very badly , maybe feeling he had lost his best friend or a brother. He expressed his feelings in his songs. Whether you like it or not, his voice is so beautiful and haunting. Those 4 lively and talented young men were never more to be all together for another song. Those 4 personalities The shining cartoon poster when the were all together formed one heck of a great song. I am so blessed to have been part of that generation of Beatlemania.
This song always made me tear up. It was like the end of John and Paul ( in my head) I always thought John was hurting when he wrote this song. I love John and Paul the same. They were a fixture of my youth and I still love them today. I do believe they both had made up and loved each other like brothers.
So in the end, all was good. I want to think that, anyway. Then a monster came along and shot John. My heart broke. But the music lives on. Yep, that’s true. I’m really glad they got along well before John’s death. John was a complex character and was no doubt affected strongly by his mother’s death, his father’s absence and all sorts of other things. A very special, creative person. Paul and John were Yin and Yang. And yet I still think John’s occasional episode of spite and nastiness is regrettable.
