I know he is despised on MN. Today his voice is broken and he is a parody... But yesterday, back in 1965, AIBU to love him then?

No OP, YANBU. Enjoy young PMC.

I think he looked a bit like Pob. I'm a George Harrison fan.grin

He was fitwink

Unexpected replies! I honestly expected to be slated.
He is a pure DIK now. He embarrasses himself... But then.
I so would blush

Nope, I'm not seeing it. I can only assume you've had too much to drink tonight.

I get it but much prefer Lennon, more of a Bad Boy! wink

You mean he looked better before he died?

Kreacherelf Sat 13-Feb-16 02:22:49

Nope. Ugliest of the 4.

Yanbu but he came to Salt Lake City last year and he was fabulous! Played for three hours straight, he gave his band a break but he continued to play. But oh back in 1965, well I was only 2 then but if I had been 10 years older I would one of those idiotic girls blubbering away at their concert.

Cliff was pretty hot too...

I'd say Paul McCartney was cute in 1965. If I had been alive and interested in boys in 1965, Elvis would have been more my taste. His lips, his eyes, his cheek bones, his famous pelvis, now that's hot.

It's always struck me that gravity seems to work more intensely on Macca's face than on the rest of his body.

My mother loved him so much as a young girl/teen in the 60's that she named my brother after him!

I love The Beatles, and had huge crushes on them as a teenager. Even though John Lennon was already long dead by then, so it was kind of strange. I watched all their anthologies, documentaries, films, listened to their albums endlessly, drew them, went to the Beatles week in Liverpool, I tried to learn the guitar with mixed results. I dreamed about them all the time. I was obsessed.

I don't think yabu.

But John Lennon was my favourite. smile

I think Macca was the most classically 'good looking'. But he looks like Penelope Wilton now (stop with the aubergine barnet!).

Can I also clear up another common MN misconception? Paul was the musically experimental, avant-garde Beatle. He spent hours listening to Stockhausen and mucking around in the studio with George Martin.

YANBU but John was nicer. I have to say I love the Beatles more than most 3 of my children have Beatles themed names. Two after songs the youngest after all 4

Janeymoo50 Sat 13-Feb-16 07:12:01

I cannot abide him now, but certainly back in the day and even the 70's/80's he was a fine looking man. I've always felt a smidgeon of pity for Heather Mills (and I know that's saying something!!!).

MoonriseKingdom Sat 13-Feb-16 07:12:57

Nantucket when you say nicer do you mean nicer looking? Because much as I love his music wasn't John infamously a bit of a bastard - at least as far as women and his children go?

MoonriseKingdom Sat 13-Feb-16 07:15:47

Also, for me no comparison- George is my favourite. I listen to his solo work whenever I need an uplift.

thinkingmakesitso Sat 13-Feb-16 07:16:12

So what if he did, Yoko, it doesn't really show in his music, does it?

But he was a pretty boy, so can see why he did it for some.

Stanky Sat 13-Feb-16 07:18:03

John was definitely no Saint. He was very damaged as a person, and I've always felt sorry for Cynthia and Julian. But, Cynthia always still loved him. It was very sad. He was being a much better father to Sean, and even beginning to reconnect with Julian, but then he was murdered. Tragic.

He had a face like a potato
