Not to be controversial here, and I do really like The Beatles and some early Lennon solo stuff and I think he had good intentions, but c'mon! The man was a hippy living in his own drug-fueled world.

He was an adulterer, a wife-beater and a drug user.

He should not be put on a pedestal.

And I'm a Scouser born and bred and proud of The Beatles' heritage, but the majority of The Beatles have done absolutely NOTHING for the city except for Paul - or Faul (in-joke - psst, I don't believe it).

Luis Suarez has done more for the city - and that says a lot!

Lennon stood for peace and love and you know what? Of course he should - we all should stand for peace and love, but it's like a dad saying 'I look after my kids - I'd do anything for my kids' of course he bloody should he's their dad!!! You get my point.

The majority of Lennon's solo work was meh. The hits are fantastic - as is the cult offering Working Class Hero (even though Lennon was middle class himself) - and they deserve their ranking, but the rest? Can anyone on here name more than the hits?

If someone posts on this forum in 20 years time that there's going to be a Bono memorial tapestry then (slap face).
