Sour grapes. I'm sure Lennon would rather not have been a martyr too.

Yeah, there is no hiding the fact that I'm a big McCartney fan, but that is unseemly to say the least. At least Paul got to live and see his children grow up, get married and now he is grandpa. John got robbed of all of that.

Wow, McCartney is really trying to out fame Lennon in very spoiled and rotten manner. First MJ and Kanye and now all this too.

Paul has become a joke. He is ruining his own legacy with all this unnecessary nonsense.

Buy MJ I'm guessing you mean Michael Jackson? I don't really mind the stuff he did with him, but the things he did with Kanye was complete crud, and now he sounds like a grumpy old man.

He is acting rather bizarre in his old age. Almost implying that John went and got burtally murdered just to upstage him. You would think he could be a bit more grateful for the mega success he has enjoyed and not have to "blow up" with the kids of today by collaborating with that douche bag West. It reeks of trying to up stage Lennon after all these bitter rantings. I said It before but he is only tarnishing his own image not Johns. I'm hugely disappointed as a huge Beatles fan and a fan of alot of their individual solo work as well.

And yeah, MJ = Jackson.
