In any case, I've come to think that John Lennon was a bit of an asshole. How about this quote:
"People like me are always aware of their so-called genius at ten, eight, nine... I always wondered, why has nobody discovered me?Sheesh, like everyone didn't go through that phase where we think we're geniuses (or genii, if you prefer that). As it turned out, he was damned good at writing songs, but I wouldn't call him a genius.
In school, didn't they see that I'm cleverer than anybody in this school? That the teachers are stupid, too?"
In truth, I think I look up to Paul a bit more, even though it would be more hip to idolize someone who's dead. Paul just seems more versatile, and a bit more subtle. I like subtle.
No doubt I'll be starting on the classics soon.
