Paul McCartney - 'complete tool'?

Some of you thnk that Paul McCartney is a tool. I am intrigued as to where this is coming from.

Rational answers please, I don't want any unfounded speculation.

well, that whole "i want it to be mccartney/lennon not lennon/mccartney" thing was pretty lame.

i don't think he's a tool per se, i just don't like hearing about him in relation to anything other than music, whether it's petty credit listings or why we should all be vegans. sort of like how i might throw my u2 albums out the window if i have to hear one more thing about africa.

McCartney's always been a big dork, but he's a lovable, talented dork.

Why does anyone care what order he puts them in anyway?

Yeah, one could as well argue that the "i want it to be lennon/mccartney not mccartney/lennon" thing was just as lame. And two lames get tame.

Oh, and to head off the people who'll say it's lame because John Lennon isn't around to dispute it: John Lennon doesn't give a fuck what order the names are in. He's dead.

And not to bash John Lennon (because that isn't my intent at all), but it must get real old for McCartney to keep hearing about the wonders Lennon would be doing if he was alive today. Chances are very good that if Lennon was still alive he'd have done some really inane crap too, but because he died tragically, many people elevate what he could have done to near mythical status.

It happens with any dead musicians. Especially the mediocre Kurt Cobain.

Financeguy, in the spirit of this thread beginning due in part to McCartney/Bono comments followed by photo observations, I did a quick google search to see if there was anything out there to suggest a snit between the two. I didn't find anything about that, but check this out:

A complete hypothesis on comparing the life cycle of the bands' careers that started by comparing album covers. I didn't have time to look at it in depth, but on the surface it's creepy and compelling.

If he's right and not out of his mind (LOL), we'll get another U2 album, someone will die, and another band will begin the cycle.

Plus, the eighties were like some sort of elephant graveyard where rock dinosaurs went to die. None of them survived that decade without putting out a crappy record. Not McCartney, not the Stones, not Clapton, not Dylan, not anybody.

Wow, if that doesn't scream "far-fetched," I don't know what does.

But Lennon/McCartney is alphabetical. Why would he want to mess with something so mathemetically harmonious as that?

I don't think McCartney's a tool. In fact, I call him ACE because he's not just a tool, but (say it with me) an entire hardware store.
