John Lennon was known for incendiary remarks. He claimed The Beatles were “bigger than Jesus”; he said The Beatles made George Martin, not the other way around; and he even had the nerve to take aim at jazz, the one form of music that gives pop a run for its money in terms of expression, adoration and dedication. “Jazz,” he said, “is just a lot of old blokes drinking beer at the bar, smoking pipes and not listening to the music.”

Well, that’s a bit much, isn’t it? Yes, and no: Lennon shot from the hip, and regularly said stuff he would contradict within minutes of saying it. Simply look at his interview with Jann Wenner, where he both reviles and adores Paul McCartney‘s work ethic. Or simply take a look at some of the interviews he gave in 1980, both espousing and criticising the virtues of getting older. And there are the remarks Lennon made about The Beatles producer George Martin, which he later retracted.
