No, I meant Paul McCartney, who I imagine coming across more savvy and business-oriented than someone like John.
It was Paul who was calling a lot of the shots (for better or worse) during the late-60's period, regarding managment, money, projects, marketing, etc.
I think they ALL had a hand in the "vision" thing, though.
I don't think John would've ever been as good as he was without Paul...and vice versa.
The cliche that always gets me too is when people distill it down to "John was the edgy, raw artist and Paul was the sappy, pop craftsman...".
For every Lennon's "Julia", there's Paul with "Helter Skelter".
They both rocked and they both whispered.
