...of February ninth, 1964, several weeks before my tenth birthday as i sat cross-legged on the living room floor in front of the television watching The Ed Sullivan Show, captivated by their performance and the screaming from mostly young teenage girls in the audience - which...
Will you still love me when I'm 64?
Well, yes, I always knew I would,
my dear working-class hero,
hard proof of the genius in the gutter,
and reminder of all the talent been wasted still.
I loved your wit, dry as sherry
-the three best things in life, you said,
a sherry before...
Life is what happens while you are busy making other plans.
part of the lyric of "Beautiful Boy"
As always, John Lennon has made a comment that requires our attention. The elegance of this quote is obvious, yet profound. We spend all our time in pursuit of material things...
I love John Lennon..He created The Beatles, and went on to be successful after they split up. I don't like that he married Yoko, as I think that was totally mismatched, however, you still have to respect the guy. He was the greatest muscian, and it's a damned tradgedy that some...
It's not like I'm in New York City very much. In fact it's very rare ever since I moved away when I was 5 years old. But I just happened to be visiting the city with my wife when the news exploded onto the airwaves. I just couldn't believe this had happened. The first thought...
Words cannot express just how much influence I have gotten from this amazing man. Before my unexpected introduction to the Beatles and to John, all I remember myself being was this atypical teenager who had a penchant for writing love stories; stories that did at all seem...
John would of made some truly great songs and albums,in the 1980's,1990's etc
Paul and George did most of there best stuff after the 70's.
So i am in no doubt John would of done the same.
He might of even been a Travelling Wilbury.
The Beatles would definately of performed...
A Good Writer
I strive to be a good writer. My mind seems to be overflowing with ideas that somehow never find their way to the page, or to the computer screen. A large part of this problem rests squarely on my shoulders because no one else knows what I am thinking, or thinking...
i am from Great Britain, so great it made The Beatles, they were icons legends all over the world. Admittedly US had Elvis but i think US Brits had the best band in the world at the time.
they go solo after Let it Be which for their standards ,was not a great record.
I'm 14 years old and I'm seriously addicted to John Lennon. There is no place in my room where I don't see a picture of him. I have huge posters on my wall and all I listen to are John Lennon and the Beatles. I have had many teachers tell me in school that I am obsessed.I'm not...
“You may say I'm a dreamer, but I'm not the only one. I hope someday you'll join us. And the world will live as one.”
― John Lennon
These lyrics have moved millions of people through the years, and for good reason. They speak to our yearning for things such as Peace and...
But I'm not the only one. I love John. I might be what some may say obsessed? Lol well ok. So I may have some john figurines but only because people know how much I love john and the rest of the Beatles. And when christmas and birthdays come along, most of my presents are beatles...
I live and breath this man seriously! what he stands for, how he sung a song that turned into the nations new year anthem, his fast witty come backs, his SMILE! Man whats not to love about John Winston Lennon?
I was born late November 1980. About a week ago my Mother told me a story that changed my thinking in many many ways!She told me that when John Lennon died December 8 1980, she was very scared for me. She wanted only the best world for her little baby and now...
I recently visited Prague and Budapest. One of the most endearing and amazing pieces of living art is the John Lennon Wall. For those of you who have seen it, you might not recognize my pics taken recently. This wall is the work of artists plus graffiti artists who...
Oh my, he is the sexiest, rudest, loveliest son of a ***** I have came across. He is my love, and I hope I can meet him in heaven one day (or hell) hehehe. I cant stop looking at him (I know it sounds wrong but I'm not kidding) I have thousands of pictures on my phone, computer...
Imagine there's no heaven,
it's easy if you try,
no hell below us,
above us only sky.
Imagine all the people,
living for today yu-huh.
Imagine there's no countries,
it isn't hard to do,
nothing to kill or die for,
and no religion too.
Its a grasp out of a time in wich i wish there was a time machine for, to rectify the meaning of living at the rate its currently going, thats what John Lennon makes me feel like and i love him for that!
Imagine there's no heaven
It's easy if you try
No hell below us
Above us only sky
Imagine all the people
Living for today...
Imagine there's no countries
It isn't hard to do
Nothing to kill or die for
And no religion too
Imagine all the people
Living life in peace...
because he never was. He was mean to his first wife and his son Julian. He was jealous, insensitive, a tempestuous personality. But in a sense it's what fleshes him out and makes him real.
A born wit, a born artist and a supremely talented musician with a complex background and...

John Lennon is amazing. He's one of my heros. he wrote some of my favorite songs (one being imagine) and he was one of the leaders in my favorite band of all time, the beatles, of course. i have a poster of him hanging in my room and i hug it sometimes:P lol
