Yeah, the teeny-bopper bubble-gum Paul-adoration does get irritating... mainly to me because it distracts from those of us who love Paul intelligently! But... what can you do? Except wait for 'em to grow out of it, lol.

I agree with you that Paul was a much more tolerable, admirable person post-Beatles, but I disagree that he was a "horrible person" before that. He was certainly young and immature at first, and then the ridiculous fame went to his head as well as screwing with it. He did way too many drugs. He was also, as you said, a rampant womanizer. And I'm sure he was often damn near insufferable in the studio.

But there was also plenty of good in him even then, plenty of sensitivity and gentleness, as I think a lot of his music from that period shows. There's enough inklings of the beautiful person he would become to allow me to absolutely love even Beatle Paul, though if I knew him in real life no doubt I'd want to smack him on occasion. :)

As for Paul and Jane... it's terrible that he cheated on her, and I don't think Jane is to blame for that specifically, though it seems obvious the relationship had other problems as well that were the fault of both parties. I do see your point about marriage, though. It makes the other Beatles' indescretions worse, IMO, as does the fact that John and Ringo had children at the time.

Uhhhhhhh... what was my point again? ;P Don't remember! Oh well, probably said enough for now anyway... :)

they should have called it quits a lot sooner then they did.

Oh heavens yes. Though I do sort of enjoy the fact that Paul stuck it out so long with a woman who pushed back so hard at him. :)

I just don't respect him, idolize him, or whatever.

Hmm, I don't think I idolize him either, as a person, but I do respect him, yes, even when he was going through his "bastard" phase. ;) Because I can absolutely see where the bastard tendencies came from, and there were still lots of genuine good qualities about him even then.

Okay, to hell with all this pussy-footing! ;P What I really want is to see you expand on why you are so disgusted with Paul's contribution to the breakup. :D If and when you have the energy, of course.

I really hate bubble gum. And chewing gum :(

I'd spank him anytime ;P Oh, sorry, maybe not quite what you were talking about.
