Reply to "Paul McCartney talks Neil Finn"

I am not so sure that I would recommend to Neil that he work with Paul should the offer come his way.  I recently read the book "Man on the Run".  Excellent read btw.  It is basically Paul through the 70's and he does not come across well in the book.  Not that the book was meant to purposely make Paul look bad as it appears to be based on accounts of not only Paul but people who knew or worked closely with him.  He does come across as a bit domineering and difficult to work with.  After reading this book, you will know why there were so many line up changes in Wings during those years.  The reason why Lennon/McCartney worked so well was that Lennon was courageous enough to be honest with Paul and tell him a song was crap when it was.  Paul respected John and probably George & Ringo enough to accept their opinion.  After the Beatles, Paul I think was desperate to find another "John Lennon" but never really found that person.  Since the 80's, he has basically been "solo" with no one really telling him no when maybe someone should have.  Hense, "Mary had a little lamb" and "Silly Love Songs", etc.  But, I think that Paul has resigned himself to that and has learn feel comfortable with that.  I fear that a Neil/Paul collaboration may just end up being a Paul song with Neil backing him.  Not sure what great material that would produce.
