… with you last month, in honor of my favorite Beatle’s birthday (George Harrison – 2/25/1943). I used to adore Paul (I was a girl – he was sooo cute!); then it was John (I was angry – Lennon set my feelings to music/lyrics), now it is George (because the music is so beautiful, and I see cycles and patterns in cities, nature, myself, the world … and hints of my mortality. sigh …). – Rosalie Tirella
Have a pal who has all the John Lennon/Yoko Ono and Plastic Ono Band albums from the 1970s. In pristine condition! Love listening to this one (it’s what I’ve always wanted to be!). – R. T.
Listened to the “final” John Lennon interview on WZLX a few nights ago (he was murdered by Chapman 30 years ago). The program was OK … . Better way to remember Lennon’s death/celebrate his life: listen to his music and pick up the latest issue of Rolling Stone magazine. I have a copy of The Play Boy interviews and I have Jann Wenner’s Lennon interviews (when he had just quit the Beatles), AND I have tons of books, including the “Beatles Anthology,” the giant coffee table book that was actually kinda cool to read through again a few nights ago.
Anyways, I miss the old Rolling Stone – when it was physically bigger and about great musicians and liberal politics – not about electronic gadgets and stupid video games. Still, I am going out to buy this RS issue as soon as I post this … If you don’t want to buy RS, check out their on-line edition. Also, dedicated to Lennon. www.rollingstone.com
