    I find this question to simply be: would you rather be alive or dead?

    Ruth2012 is an idiot. There was a myth that The Beatles made up; they said that Paul got killed in a car crash. Then they quickly found a replacement named Billy Shears, hence why in some of their songs and album covers, they mention Billy Shears. You can put together the puzzle pieces and find out that The Beatles did this as a comedic scam. Do your research and don't just believe everything you see or hear. God.

      That's not a myth. Don't talk about something you know nothing about. I can't tell you who I am but I can tell you that Paul did really die, and the only reason they passed it off as a joke when confronted about it is because the penalty for telling about Paul being dead is death. But I'm honestly so mad at your right now that I don't care, so I'm telling you. -_-"

      um excuse me veg but billy shears was actually not the name of the person they got to replace him. the look a like was named William Campbell. billy sears was the name to refer to Ringo in the song Sgt,peppers lonely hearts club band as it is Ringo who sings the song after which is with a little help from my friends. as for weather or not the myth is true take a look at pictures his eyes,ears, and head shape change. explain that

    As great an artist as John was during his life, he was kind of a jerk. I'd rather be Paul. Plus he doesn't get shot.

    John Lennon - Abandoned his friends, cheated on his wife with a weirdo and got shot. Paul McCartney stuck with his friends, did decent things throughout his life and was knighted... oh and is alive...

      O' RLY i1.kym-cdn.com/entries/ic...5/orly.jpg sry about that could resist. first of all john didn't abandon his friends, strucken by grief when his friend Stuart died blamed him self for that cuz he thought he could have came sooner when Stuart was in a rough fight, stayed friends with Paul even after the Beatles break up. as for cheating an Cynthia read this quote It was said I never loved Cyn. That's far from the truth. We were young, bigheaded, and got into a physical relationship too soon. Perhaps if we took things slow we would have made it. I know we would have made it." - John Lennon 1974. if your referring to John being with may pang while married to Yoko that was Yoko's idea. was shot by a mentally disturbed person he didn't do anything to bring that on him self. as for paul sticking with his friends well yes this true. decent things actually paul did have a little bit of a raciest period there. he married heather mills who only married him for the money paul and his number of afiars to he liked to hump. he was knighted.... i pretty sure if John had lived he would have been knighted to and is alive ok not ive you believe in conspery theory but if you dont being dead or alive done not affect out people influence others

      John Lennon did cheat on his wife. Paul McCartney cheated on his girlfriend Jane Asher, too. Many times. They both did.

      Whymannywhy, I've read several books about John Lennon, and never did he beat his family. He punched his first wife, once, in drunken rage because he thought she was cheating on him. He alopogised and she accepted. He never did it again to either of his wives or any of his children.

    They are/were both incredibly talented and amazing people, but Lennon's views on world peace and unity make him very admirable in my views.

    Lennon: An Intellegent badarse that somehow is balanced with a childlike sense of creativity in not only in music but also in art. Seems like a interesting combo, sometimes fun as well. McCartney: Nice guy but is somewhat equivalent of that guy that just sings love songs to some princess up in a tower. Enough to make anyones heart to grow fond off but not much variety in much else.

      Yes, I know about John, having watched many, many documentaries, read many books and watched his interviews. He punched his first wife - in her words - ONCE, in drunken rage, because he thought that she was cheating. She left him, and he pleaded for her to come back, and she did, and he never punched her again. She forgave him and he changed, and he never beat either of his children. He ADORED Sean from the moment he was born, and he really tried to fix things up with Julian, sadly, it was shortly before he died. So yes, I do know. Read Cynthia's book about John. Learn before you speak.

    I don't really like John Lennon. He beat both his wife's, he emotionally abused and abandoned his son, he was a liar; making out he was a working class lad from Liverpool when he actually grew up in a middle-class home, he broke up the Beatles; he announced he was leaving at a meeting in the late 60's, he was a mindless conformist, from the beginning, he was desperate for money and fame, and most of all, he was a hypocrite, singing "Imagine no possessions" when he lived a millionaire's life, singing "All you need is love" when he was an angry, violent man. I will say one thing for him though; he was talented.

      ok now were do i begin with you. ah yes for my comment on the wife abuse thing look at my reply to Xenuunicorn. second of all about the emotonly abusing and abandoning his first son you have to realize hoe he grew up to hid dad abandon him around the same age he abandon Julian he had a hard childhood read about it it could have been worse. isn't middle class and working class the same thing just different terms for it and i even if there not Liverpool IS manly working class. how did he break up the beatles? the band was together for about 7 or 8 years they all wanted to go on there own. he didn't have to be famous in a quote he said if he could be a fisherman. the song imagine. yes there probably would be less violence with less want for possessions but were all human the want for possessions is something very hard to repress plus it was a about a dream of his. about him being an angry viloent man again rough childhood and again he was only human. why even Gandhi lost his temper at time

      Jesus. I'm gonna repeat myself... Once again. I've watched many, many documentaries, read many books and watched many interviews about and by John Lennon. He punched his first wife - in her words - ONCE, in drunken rage, because he thought that she was cheating. She left him, and he pleaded for her to come back, and she did, and he never punched her again. She forgave him and he changed, and he never beat either of his children and he never beat Yoko. He ADORED Sean from the moment he was born, and he really tried to fix things up with Julian, sadly, it was shortly before he died. Read Cynthia's book about John. Learn before you speak. He was taken from his mother and his father left when he was five, leaving him with his aunt and uncle in a low middle-class home in Liverpool. He was a political activist, fighting all his later life for the war in Viernam to stop, to overthrow Nixon, to fight for peace and love, for equality and no wars. Of course he was a millionaire, does that give him no right to sing about peace?

    I thought "Would I rather be dead and have everyone know I'm dead, or be dead and have no one know I'm dead except for a few conspiracy theorists who no one believes?" so I had to pick John, 'cause at least people know he's dead. Just because I think Paul is dead doesn't mean I'm a huge conspiracy theorist. That's the only conspiracy I believe!

      my goodness people today. mark chapmen wasnt aimng for yoko sadly he was aiming for John (though i have nothing against yoko accept maybe being a bit jealous) mark shot him becose well for one reason whe thought he'd be famous for killing a famous person. and second mark is mentaly disterbed for some reason he thought that catcher on the rye was a message from god (how i dont know) i would help if you actually read

      Actually, Chapman shot him after reading the Catcher in the Rye, saying that it was telling him to kill Lennon, as he thought of him as a lair and manipulative being. He was insane. He would read it in a candle-lit room, chanting "John Lennon must die says the Catcher in the Rye". No, not insane at all...
