Don't know where someone got the idea that Starkey has a 'self-depreciating sense of humour'. Not since about 1965, anyway. Nowadays, he takes himself over-seriously to an extent only matched by Gary Barlow.
I suppose I might have voted for Harrison around 1974 when he'd released 3 or 4 absolute stinkers of albums on the trot, but nowadays Starr's self-importance in relation to how lucky he is to be there at all puts him a league of one imo.
Good programme on BBC4 about Harrison the other week btw.
Oh, and I have to agree with the opening comment about 'Imagine' being the most over-rated pile of poo going. 'Imagine no possessions ...' Yeah right mate.
Shesh, people slate Imagine, then call Live and Let Die a great song. Maybe I need to play all Beatles solo stuff backwards to find the hidden messages...

Burgey: Be careful dealing with neighbours whose cars don't have wheels but whose houses do.
Uppercut: Maybe I just need better strippers
Well, Live and Let Die getting more love than it deserves in the Bond Theme thread (ie, people mentioned it). Having a pop at Imagine tends to happen every so often on here, grecian opened with a shot accross the starboard on that note
Live & Let Die > Imagine: fact.

All post-Beatles solo careers were inconsistent but there are some gems. Plastic Ono Band is amazing, All Things Must Pass is magic. Macca's is head and shoulders above though. Band on the Run and McCartney are great albums, Ram is very good and all the albums of originals he's released since the late 90s have been superb.
He was IMO the best songwriter in The Beatles but since The Beatles it's not even close for me personally.
FFS you killed my thread by mentioning ****ing Wings, statistically proven a definitive thread-genocide band..
Can I switch my vote to Macca
Pete Best, obviously. Got kicked out...
I hear this one's guitar playing wasn't up to scratch...
