The day the Clash kicked out Mick Jones, the song I grieved to was “Complete Control.” When Zayn quit 1D, “Clouds” was the one I obsessed over — “love is never ever simple,” so true. (Perhaps I overfeel these things.) “No Control” is still my favorite Four track, but “Clouds” is the one that’s grown the most over time — anyone can bite the Beatles, but it takes true pop visionaries like 1D to plunder Paul McCartney & Wings. Anybody who doubts Macca’s genius as a guitarist — besides everything else he is — needs to consider how 1D could build such a world-beating pop epiphany out of the “Band on the Run” riff.
