I just wanted to say that out of all the Beatles, Paul is the only one I haven't ever heard anyone say was, essentially, perfect. I've heard John, George, and Ringo fans each go on and on about how great each of them were, ad nauseum, as if they were picture perfect, saintly human begins. ESPECIALLY George fans. I mean, yeah I've heard teens (well, and maybe me sometimes...) go on and on about how pretty he was, but never anything about him being perfect. I'm not saying it hasn't happened, I've just never seen it. Maybe I'm just in the wrong communities though.

which has that Paul was horrible as a person during his Beatle years

I agreed with your rant, still, until I came to this. I guess I just take issue with saying "Paul was a horrible person" because of the things listed. He DID some nasty, mean spirited stuff, but that doesn't make Paul a horrible person. I've made a lot of shitty decisions and definitely hurt some people in my past, but I (pray) that no one is calling me a horrible person for those things.

But, in essence, I agree with your rant. It should be rather obvious to everyone: Paul was neither saint nor all-around sinner. He was simply human.

Really? Never? Um...okay. Because I've heard PLENTY of Paul fans go "on and on" about how great he was (granted I've heard that said about the others too, don't hurt me). I think it's easy to feel like our favorite Beatle gets no respect...but yeah, trust me, there are plenty of Paul fans who behave exactly the way you described some John, George and Ringo fans.

I figured everyone was going to have a different opinion on this, lol. I've heard a little of the going "on and on" about how great he is phenomenon, but never the extint I've heard about the others *shrugs.* And it's usually with a caveat about realizing that he is not perfect.

But probably different circles and all, or, yeah, it could also be that as a big Paul fan I notice more often when he's "picked on" so to speak ;)
