Thought I'd get this in before Stevie, the sixth beatle, got his chance.

On October 9th John Winston Lennon woulda been 70 years old. For those that care invest in a copy of the UK music mag Q as it has everything you need to see and know about the event. Please note I would like some official role with this mag, but alas, I don't.

Tomorrow and the day after I'll be playing a gig down the local which will feature Watching The Wheels, Give Peace a Chance and Cold Turkey, amongst others.

Do me a favour, if you're in New York or anywhere near, go down Central Park to the memorial there, pop by the Dakota and post here what's going on. Take a pic and put it up. Then you and all can go homelike I will, wait till it's dark, light some candles, get some booze out and get loved ones and yer Ipod or your CDs or your vinyl and put some Beatles or Lennon on. Loud.

Imagine what the last thirty years would have been like if he'd lived.

RIP Johnny boy. Yer sadly missed.

McCartney said this in Q. When was John at his best? When he was asleep.

Smartarse. Those boys always had the lines.

Lovely post, RV! See what happens when you get near a keyboard sober?

I have some pics of me at the Dakota in 1997 - I'll scan them and put them up.

Its weird thinking of John as 70 if he lived - he would only be a year older than me dad!

It's like that line in the Matrix. Hear that Mr. Anderson? That's the sound of inevitability.

Same as my dad Stevie lad.

And I will have you know that rumours concerning my alciholy intake are grossly underflated. Why the the only the the, Matt Johnson, the olny the other day I drank a pub dry.

Oh no, I mean I never touch the stuff. Arse!!

Good to see you round fella. Buy Q. You'll love it. I'm gonna buy another one so I can frame the pics. They are beautiful.

Stevie,

Great photos.

I'm just sat here watching the wheels go round and round. I really love to watch 'em roll.

People say Iím crazy
Doing what Iím doing
Well they give me all kinds of warnings
To save me from ruin
When I say that Iím o.k. well they look at me kind of strange
Surely youíre not happy now you no longer play the game

People say Iím lazy
Pissing my life away
Well they give me all kinds of advice
Designed to enlighten me
When I tell them that Iím doing fine watching shadows on the wall
Donít you miss the big time boy youíre no longer on the ba---all

Iím just sitting here watching the wheels go round and round
I really love to watch them roll
No longer riding on the merry-go-round
I just had to let it go

Ah, people asking questions
Lost in confusion
Well I tell them thereís no problem
Only solutions
Such as lager and whiskey and tea

Well they shake their heads and they look at me as if Iíve lost my mind
I tell them thereís no hurryIím just sitting here doing time
Iím just sitting here watching the wheels go round and round

I really love to watch them roll
No longer riding on the merry-go-round
I just had to let it goI just had to let it go

I just had to....

Let it go

John Winston Lennon

9th October 1940 - 8th December 1980

R.I.P. Fella
Come back!

My favorite JL lyrics from his solo career are from Gimme Some Truth:

No short haired yellowbellied son of Tricky Dicky's gonna mother hubbard softsoap me

for just a pocketful of hope

money for dope

Temperature's rising
Fever is high
Can't see no future
Can't see no sky

My feet are so heavy
So is my head
I wish I was a baby
I wish I was dead

Cold turkey has got me on the run

Body is aching
Goose-pimple bone
Can't see no body
Leave me alone

My eyes are wide open
Can't get to sleep
One thing I'm sure of
I'm at the deep freeze

Cold turkey has got me on the run
Cold turkey's got me on the run.

Thirty-six hours
Rolling in pain
Praying to someone
Free me again

Oh I'll be a good boy
Please make me well
I promise you anything
Get me out of this hell

Cold turkey has got me on the run

Temperature's rising
Fever is high
Can't see no future
Can't see no sky

My feet are so heavy
So is my head
I wish I was a baby
I wish I was dead

Cold turkey has got me on the run
Body is aching
Goose-pimple bone
Can't see no body
Leave me alone

My eyes are wide open
Can't get to sleep
One thing I'm sure of
I'm at the deep freeze

Cold turkey has got me on the run
Cold turkey has got me on the run

Thirty-six hours
Rolling in pain
Praying to someone
Free me again

Oh I'll be a good boy
Please make me well
I promise you anything
Get me out of this hell

Cold turkey has got me

On the run

So sgt. Pepper took you by surprise
You better see right through that mother's eyes
Those freaks was right when they said you was dead
The one mistake you made was in your head
.
Oh, how do you sleep

Oh, how do you sleep at night? (Ya cant)

You live with straights who tell you you was king
Jump when you mama tell you anything
The only thing you done was yesterday
And since you've gone you've just another day
.
Oh, how do you sleep
Oh, how do you sleep at night

Oh, how do you sleep
Oh, how do you sleep at night

A pretty face may last a year or two
Beet pretty soon they'll see what you can do
The sound you make is you talk to my ears
You must have learned something in all these years
.
Oh, how do you sleep?

Oh, how do you sleep at night

I was dreaming of the past

And my heart was beating fast

I began to lose control


I began

To lose control

I didn't mean to hurt you

I'm sorry that I make you cry

Oh my
I didn't want to hurt you

I'm just a jealous guy

I was feeling insecure
You might not love me anymore

I was shivering inside

I was shivering

Inside


I didn't mean to hurt you

I'm sorry that I make you cry

Oh no
I didn't want to hurt you

I'm just a jealous guy


I didn't mean to hurt you

I'm sorry that I make you cry

Oh no, I didn't want to hurt you

I'm just a jealous guy


I was trying to catch your eyes

Though that you was trying to hide

I was swallowing my pain

I was swallowing
My pain


I didn't mean to hurt you

I'm sorry that I make you cry

Oh no, I didn't want to hurt you

I'm just a jealous guy

I'm just

A jealous guy


I'm just a jealous guy

As soon as your born they make you feel small

By giving you no time instead of it all

'Till the pain is so big you feel nothing at all


A working class hero is something to be

A working class hero is something to be


They hurt you at home and they hit you at school

They hate you if you're clever and they despise a fool

'Till you're so fucking crazy you can't follow their rules


A working class hero is something to be

A working class hero is something to be

When they've tortured and scared you for twenty odd years

Then they expect you to pick a career

When you can't really function you're so full of fear


A working class hero is something to be
A working class hero is something to be

Keep you doped with religion and sex and TV

And you think you're so clever and classless and free

But you're still fucking peasents as far as I can see


A working class hero is something to be
A working class hero is something to be

There's room at the top they are telling you still

But first you must learn how to smile as you kill

If you want to be like the folks on the hill


A working class hero is something to be

A working class hero is something to be

If you want to be a hero well just follow me

If you want to be a hero well

Just follow John


Stick him on with the candles on and the lights out.

Imagine an old man with greying long hair who has more passion and soul than most have in their little fingers.

Remember

RIP JWL

The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; but Jesus has come that we may have life, and have it more abundantly.  John 10:10

Hopefully, Mr. Lennon figured that out before he met the Lord.

Some say he was the new Jesus.

I know he was not fond of crucifixes.

Then again, if Jesus did come back, you think he'd wanna see another fecking cross? (c) William Hicks.

Shame the rest of you didn't join in.

Still, Lennon would say Fuck em, ignorant boring arseholes.

Still, I still love you. I'm like that. Especially when I'm pissed.

I love you and leave you with this. Don't forget him...

Quoted from John WL
I was raised by my auntie. My father and me mother split when I was about four. I spent sometime with mother upto about four and I was brought up by an auntie. When I was sixteen I re-estblished a relationship with my mother for about four years. She taught me music. First of all she taught me the banjo. And from that I progressed to guitar.

You know, you went to see those movies with Elvisor somebody, when we were still in Liverpool. You'd see everybody waiting to see him. We were waiting there too. Everybody screamed as soon as he appeared on the screen. We thought that's a good job

There's a joke in my family about the guitar - It's alright for a hobby. But it won't earn you any money.



I still believe all you need is love.

Love is all you need.


Fuckin' A.

End of me thread.
