Found this over at Letters Of Note.
It was apparently published 20 years ago, and strangely now, on the anniversary of Linda McCartney's death.
The anger just flows out of John in this response, retort to Linda. It is obvious to me that he was productive, but lost in the overwhelming confines of his love for Yoko, and, like the other Beatles, aimless and exposed following the death of Brian Epstein.
I'll continue to go back and forth between my unrealistic, fan boy alliance with either John or Paul. But today I'm in Paul's camp. John sounds level headed for a scant sentence or two, but for the most part is a vitriolic poison Paul arrow. John even chastises Linda for addressing the letter to merely "John Lennon" and not "John and Yoko"!!!!! Man , my lost weekend would STILL be going on if I had to come home to that. She'd be Yoko All-Alone-O...
Furthermore, I just had "Do The Oz"( b-side to Power to the People) pop up on my Ipod yesterday and the incessant screeching(disguised as bullshit art) by Yoko in the sideground made me want to divebomb off of a white ladder, into a caterwaul free void. The vocal styling is akin to the sound of a high heel piercing a bunny's brain.
Maybe, that's what he was REALLY angry about.
Then again, the anger sounds brilliant on the Plastic Ono Band album, one of my all time favs, despite the title.
