****I can just imagine Paul on his death bed. "I was in the Beatles. What do you mean I'm gonna die? Fuck this shit! I wrote Hey Jude!"

***You are not a bandmate of anyone, are you? LOL

***An ego is had by you, the guy next door, the baker of great baked goods and all who strive to better themselves. A HUGE ego is great to have if one can back it up to allow that! I hope he does have a huge ego, for he deserves it. Shame if he ho hummed it all, as if to say, so what! That would be a slap in the face to anyone who every picked up a guitar, or played drums, and dreamed of playing their music for the masses.

***I work with someone who has met and talked with Paul, along with another who had him send a song to me by phone before release, JUST because my friend told him I was a huge Beatle fan, being inspired to keep at it despite no money and fame to really speak of.
***
***Doing that showed me that Paul, probably having a huge ego, sure, also is a down to earth person who cares about little things like we all when not on stage or in the studio, leaving that huge performance ego in those places.
***
***Just sayin,
***John

** The majority of famous people have Egos. But having said that Paul seems to be one of the nicer more down to Earth celebrities. And he is also supposed to be more fan friendly than Mr. Starkey who just continues to walk away saying "Peace and Love" if a fan asks him for an autograph.

* And just for the record I am a Ringo fan. I think he is an underrated performer. But I'd be pissed if I had a random encounter with him and he just blew me off by chanting Peace and Love.

LENNON: "Ringo was a star in his own right in Liverpool before we even met. He was a professional drummer who sang and performed and had Ringo Starr-time and he was in one of the top groups in Britain but especially in Liverpool before we even had a drummer. So Ringo's talent would have come out one way or the other as something or other. I don't know what he would have ended up as, but whatever that spark is in Ringo that we all know but can't put our finger on... whether it is acting, drumming or singing I don't know... there is something in him that is projectable and he would have surfaced with or without the Beatles. Ringo is a damn good drummer. He is not technically good, but I think Ringo's drumming is underrated the same way Paul's bass playing is underrated. Paul was one of the most innovative bass players ever. And half the stuff that is going on now is directly ripped off from his Beatles period. He is an egomaniac about everything else about himself, but his bass playing he was always a bit coy about. I think Paul and Ringo stand up with any of the rock musicians. Not technically great... none of us are technical musicians. None of us could read music. None of us can write it. But as pure musicians, as inspired humans to make the noise, they are as good as anybody."
