    Both were singers and gutarists for The Beatles but which one had the better solo career? John wrote about War, Love and Peace. Paul has had a longer solo career but has he made the same amount of classics as John did?

    Personally I like John Lennons music over Pauls. I welcome everyones opnion.

    I prefer JOhn. His post Beatle music is legendary and some of the best music he ever wrote.

    Paul was in a different league, very good, but it didn't have the messege that JL gave in his music.

    I've always been a huge Beatle fan and still listen to their music, especially John's. I think, looking in retrospect at his early death, his music is a lasting message to the world.

    my son made an entire audience have tears in their eyes a few years ago when he performed Imagine for a cancer fundraiser at the hospital he works at. some scoff at his idealism, but the message is simple and so powerful. … re=related

    George, actually. But, if it has to be between John and Paul, John wins, hands down.
    My mother, however, does not agree.

    Since John Lennon was murdered before I really knew who he was, I have to answer with Paul McCartney.  In fact, I only know of one song from JL - Imagine, but have many songs from PM in my head.

    No contest. John and Paul together were an unbeatle songwriting team. Solo careers, I love the McCartney album. It's a classic. I love Ram. Can't stand Wings. And McCartney hasn't done anything since then that I like.
    I like him and I am happy I got to see him.
    But John -- totally different league (of his own).

    Tough question.  51% Paul to 49% John.  Love George too.
