John Lennon was simply amazing. He was just an honest man who followed his heart. He wasn't the best musician ever, didn't have amazing vocals but he wrote great songs and made them come alive.

If only Chapman had had his catcher in the rye. And realized that Jody Foster was a lesbian.

Just think if Lennon died earlier then we would not even be talking about it. The world did not change because of him. If you look to a drug addicted musician to give you hope and balance, you are already screwed up.

Thankfully most of world has moved on and gotten over John Lennon. He was at times hateful and a major antagonist. Was he the numbskull Beatle who suggested their band was more popular than Jesus Christ?

John Lennon was a beautiful writer and singer. Years later, another generation enjoys his music. My six year old absolutely adores his music. The musicians today can not compare.

John Lennon should have died at age 27, like the rest of them, and spared us the crap he produced later in his career.

Actually he should have died before doing Sgt. Pepper.

And John Lennon would have called you an idiot for making such a generalized statement about today's musicians. The fact of the matter is that some of them do compare very favorably. John would have admired them and would have been actively collaborating with artists you wouldn't have seen coming. Any true fan of John Lennon would figure out a way to celebrate his body of work without living in the past. I'm not saying that all music is great, but vapid pop performers were around in his day. Paul McCartney comes to mind.

Pete Townshend is a weird bloke. Fond of images of child porn according to the police. And he wonders why his career is long over. Banned from the US as well! Super "Fatty cellulite' Amanda

Lennon was getting wimpier every day.

Just imagine how much more crappy (a la Double Fantasy) music he would have put out by now.

Whew!

I know. He claimed he was 'doing research'. Yeah, right.
