Someone asked me today...
« on: August 31, 2016, 07:53:04 PM »

A guy I know asked me today, "What's the difference between John and Paul?"


I said, "As people or musically?"


He said, "Both."


I told him what I thought for five or ten minutes.  One of the points I made was that McCartney had immense talent and a way with melodies that is almost unrivaled.  John was very artistic and had a style that Paul could probably never do.  I also told him that there is so much overlap that it is difficult to categorize anything about them when comparing the two. 


If one made a statement about Paul you could probably find an example from John that would apply to him too.  (and vice-versa.)


As people it is easier to explain.

I wonder if that works with all creative people who are that close. Mick and Keef? Paul and Arty? I wonder too about the Finn brothers.
