LOVEUNIEXAM- Hey thanks for the you tube of the rare Lennon song. Serve Yourself. Pretty cool song. He did advocate for peace for sure, he was no saint, but like you say- he never claimed to be.
FINKELSTEIN- As you say not only John Lennon but thousands of other celebrities have either done drugs, committed adultery , or other various sundry things- I still see people go and pay to watch their movies and listen to their music. It doesn't mean a person advocates their life style - they just appreciate the talent they bring as human beings who are artists.
UNDER THE RADAR- Exactly. You see the point I'm making - the bigger picture. If a person had to single out every famous person on the planet throughout the centuries- I'm quite sure dirty laundry could be brought up about most of them. All of us have our share somewhere along the timeline. Thanks for bringing up all of those examples of famous people. You help prove the point I'm making.
ORPHAN CROW- Thanks for the beautiful Imagine with acoustic guitars. Very nice. I think I may have that on a CD somewhere. One of Lennon's best songs if not THE best.
FINKELSTEIN- All You Need Is Love. Thanks for posting- so true.
EVA LUNA- Wow, what an experience you had to be at a Stevie Wonder concert the night Lennon was killed. That will stick with you the rest of your life I'm sure hearing the tribute from Stevie and those other artists. What an incredible experience. And to see Santana and Bob Marley performing also ? Wow. Two more of my musical heroes. What a touching night ! Thanks for sharing .
LITTLEROCKGUY- If you want to continue to cast stones at famous people just check out the list that the poster Under the Radar provided of famous people who had huge character flaws throughout history . Even political leaders who allegedly claimed they were " peacemakers " . I suppose then- you'll have to hate many of the famous people who have existed on this planet for thousands of years then. How do you find time to carry around that much hate and vitriol within yourself ? You must be a nervous wreck in your day to day life and very unhappy as well. Sure Lennon had his flaws, so do I, so do you- fuckin' get over it. Peace out, Mr. Flipper
