If I had to choose I'd go with John only because of 'Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band'. Other than that both were tra-la-la, blah-blah in the right time, at the right place.

the concept and driving force behind sgt. peppers was paul. john actually abhorred the idea at first.
(and if you're referring to the song, that too was written by mccartney.)

Default Re: John Lennon or Paul McCartney

No, because of:

Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds
Inspired by a painting by his almost four-year-old son Julian, who gave his work of art the same title, 'Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds' swiftly evolved into a kind of Lennon musical vision of Alice In Wonderland. The basic track, overdubs and mixing were all effected at different speeds giving the song an ethereal quality in keeping with the imaginative lyrics. Recording commenced in studio two at Abbey Road on March 1 1967. Album version mixed from take eight. Writer: John. Lead vocal: John. Producer: George Martin. Recording engineer: Geoff Emerick. Second engineer: Richard Lush.

Than:

Good Morning Good Morning
A John Lennon song initially inspired by a television commercial for cornflakes which then drifts into an everyday story about everyday, complete with a reference to the British TV comedy show Meet The Wife. The song includes a brass overdub by six musicians from Sounds Inc, rock music's very own big band, managed by Brian Epstein, and it ends with a succession of carefully compiled animal sound effects from the EMI collection, added to the song, to Lennon's specification, in an order whereby each successive animal is capable of frightening or devouring its predecessor. Recording commenced in studio two at Abbey Road on February 8 1967. Album version mixed from take 11. Writer: John. Lead vocal: John. Producer: George Martin.

Sgt Pepper

I fail to see in what way Lennon was more avant-guardist than McCartney.

Actually I had to vote for Paul because of his contribution to the progressiveness of music though his lyrics aren't any better than Lennon's. My fave is still George Harrison.

The Byrd-like jingle jangle folk rock song What You're Doing was McCartney's

The progressiveness of A Day in the Life (orchestration and dissonance) was McCartney's idea.

McCartney was the second musician to use a mellotron in pop music (after Mike Pinder, Moody Blues).


Oh and of course, McCartney & the Wings were much better than Lennon's post Beatle career !!


----------

Byrds were better.

Lennon's post Beatles career was much better. What can you saw about "Stand By Me", "Jealous Guy", "Instant Karma", "Watching The Wheels"
