Amen to that!

It has always bothered me that people have become "polarized" in re Lennon & McCartney. To enjoy one is not to dislike the other. After all, it was Lennon & McCartney who wrote "Come Together!" Darn shame the snobs seem to feel differently.

Each Beatle had his own individual style of unique and extraordinary talent. In my life, I've loved them all (but prefer McCartney & Harrison's music, Beatles and solo).
With a love like that, you know you should be glad, yeah, yeah, yeah!-- Beatles, 1963

If I seem to act unkind, it's only me, it's not my mind. -- George Harrison, 1966
