Paul McCartney 'Regrets' John Lennon's Public Image
Paul McCartney has said that he regrets the way that the image of his old Beatles bandmate John Lennon has been formed since his death... According to McCartney, Lennon was a much more complex character than the media has suggested: "There is this period of John which is all pre-Beatles, pre-huge fame, pre-drugs and it is another John completely that was always right there until the end... He got much sweeter, too, once he settled in New York. Since he was reunited with Yoko, and they had Sean [Lennon, son], he became this sweet personality again then when he was more comfortable with himself. "But the acerbic John is the one we know and love, you know, because he was clever with it, so it was very attractive. But, for me, I have more than a slight affection for the John I knew then, when we were first writing songs, when we would try and do things the old songwriters had done." "I slightly regret the way John's image has formed, and because he died so tragically it has become set in concrete. The acerbic side was there but it was only part of him. He was also such a sweet, lovely man a really sweet guy."
