Something interesting from earlier this week in Alan Mcgee's Guardian blog - a stout defence of Sean Lennon as musician. McGee thinks he's the "most underrated musical talent on the planet".
No, he really does:
Of course, it doesn't occur to McGee that the reason why he can play to 1000 people in the US may just be because he's a Beatle's kid, and not despite it.
In fact, McGee then goes on to sound like Michael Caine and any one of those people who feel they don't get enough respect in their home land:
Hmmm. Really? The UK inspires people to fail. That'd be why the Beatles fell flat on their arses, would it?
Interesting, in fact, that two of the artists he cites there are from the UK. Where we're busily inspiring people to fail.
(And Jim McCabe - who sent the link to me - points out the irony in comparing Noel Gallagher and the offspring of John Lennon.)
If we were Sean Lennon, before we print this one off for our cutting library, we might suck a thoughtful tooth and weigh McGee's measure of genius. Perhaps using Baby Amphetamine as a control.
