"How the Beatles Helped Originate the Rock Dis"

Ringo attempts a dis but is too affable to pull it off: The ever-jovial Beatle cut a solo song, “Early 1970,” that seemed like he was attempting to tweak his now-former bandmates. On Paul: “Lives on a farm, got plenty of charm, beep, beep/He's got no cows but he's sure got a whole lotta sheep.” On John: “Laying in bed, watching TV … with his mama by his side, she's Japanese.” George: “ … With his long-legged lady in the garden picking daisies for his soup.” Zing?
