Was John Lennon the greatest Beatle?

It's a debate that has raged for decades, and will probably never end. But try to settle this.

Paul has plenty of defenders, many of whom cites his ability to play more than 20 instruments and his genius in the recording studio, as well as his hit-studded post-Beatles career.

But John is considered the innovator as well as the social justice advocate.

John’s melodies are complex, including more notes than the standard four chord progression that comprises the majority of pop music. But the songs of John’s solo career, such as “Give Peace a Chance,” and “Imagine,” are generational anthems, supporting and contributing to everything that was the 1960s and early 1970s.
So while Paul wrote the pop anthems, establishing the very pop music formula still used today, John helped propel social justice, composing the soundtrack of a great public movement.

Paul's gift for a pop hook was unparalleled, however. Yoko Ono claimed it even intimidated Lennon:

"John was very human. In the middle of the night he would say, 'They always cover Paul's songs, they never cover mine'."

Lennonites say Paul may have written the songs that made the young girls cry, but Lennon changed the world.
