John Lennon is a dick.

Was a dick.

Thanks for the submit, DF! I'd heard about the renaming snafu, but I didn't realize there was so much more to it. The one part of this that I find shocking and disappointing above everything else is that John Lennon would downmix Flo & Eddie. That's fucked up.
Dinkin Flicka
Certainly. There's footage all on Youtube and some here, I think, of some of the performances in question. They're actually the first tastes I had of how terrible Yoko Ono is. The background story here is more interesting than the videos, in my opinion.

She did a job on Lennon too. I'm not usually one to fall into Ono hate, but for all intents and purposes, she put some major help in turning Lennon into an intolerable douche. By contrast, the period where he broke off with her, his Lost Weekend with May Pang, was when he actually went about trying to mend relationships with the former Beatles, his son, and putting some productive effort into his solo career.

Awwww man Flo & Eddie were the best thing thing when they were in his band.

Bort
But ... but ... John wrote a song about imagining no possessions, therefore he must have been a saint in his personal and professional life!

Then again, Frank Zappa had that creepy ranch/cult thing with Torgo, so I guess nobody's perfect.
Keefu
He was also a control freak who had a lot contempt for anyone and everyone around him at the time for simply not being like him. He was also pretty smug and self-assured about how weird he was when most of the time his weirdness amounted to giving songs funny names or making pee jokes.

Peaches en Regalia is pretty though and Lennon is the bigger ass here.

The only time Frank Zappa didn't sound like a bitter, bitter old man was when was an old man (or as old as he ever got). He seemed like kind of a sweetheart then.

-1 for Zappa being Zappa

But John Lennon was and always will be a dickhead if only for how he shit all over his son, and brother that more than enough of a reason!

Seems par the course for Lennon. Guy was a great musician, but man was he a dick.
Keefu
It's so hard to reconcile sometimes. Julia and the version of Across the Universe on Let It Be Naked are two of my most favorite songs ever. But, still, what a fucking dick.

Syd Midnight
Lennon vs Zappa must have been like the Battle of Jutland except with egos instead of dreadnoughts. To bad nobody recorded those two having a fight, that would be the best thing ever.

Bort
God damn, Syd, I love the hell out of you some days.

Lurchi
Too bad Zappa never wrote any good songs. (Literally none.)
Dinkin Flicka
You've apparently spent a lot of time analyzing his entire catalogue for any possible diamond in the rough! Although I personally disagree in every way, I applaud your dedication to an informed opinion!

Steve Airport
Listen to Apostrophe' or Overnite Sensation and tell me that again, with a straight face. I dare you.
