John had his ups and downs. He was definitely not a saint, but he was not a monster either. He was a complex person with many sides and layers and as many defects as qualities. That is why he was always my favorite Beatle. I am not saying that he was perfect or that some of the things he did - his violent behavior, his outbursts and mood swings, his jealousy, etc. - were okay in any way or that they did not exist. I know they did and I am 100% sure that any true Beatles fan does. But reducing Jonn to just that is fucking ridiculous. He was a lot more than that. His good parts don’t cancel the bad ones, but the bad ones don’t erase the good either. Do not try to stuff him in a fucking box or paste a label on his head. If you try to do that, you don’t understand shit about who John was. That’s all I’m gonna say about this.
