Sometimes I wish that John Lennon hadn't gone to those fucking primal therapy sessions

Because most of his early music independent of the Beatles is taken up by this sort of whiny complaining that came out as a direct result of the enormously liberating effects of the therapy. Whining about your mother on tape and then selling it, on and on. The purging takes the place of a lot of artistic creativity, leaving Paul McCartney's early independent works, particularly his Ram album, as more valuable for new insights into what's possible musically.
