Song "Ballad of John and Yoko" is true if not prophetic! Simply a great tune!

Completely agree about quoting the name of the scumbag who killed him. When I was in NY last year for the 2 NJ Stones gigs, I did the open-top bus tour, and was pissed off that they mentioned the killer's name, including his middle name, as if he was in some way connected to or equal to John. That's exactly what he wanted....

I prefer the Prime Minister of New Zealand's approach after the massacre in the mosques. She refused to name the killer and asked that others do the same. But to remember and respect the names of the victims if possible....

Lots of great John Lennon stuff on BBC4 last night. Probably still available on IPlayer...

It's 35 years ago today that Mark David Chapman put an end to the life of John Lennon.
The world has not become what John imagined. Still his words give encouragement to people
who imagine that a better world is possible.
Raise our glass to John today.

Any chance you could edit that twats name out (yeah ha ha Stones fans). Doesn't deserve to be remembered or even mentioned in connection with John Lennon who may not have been a great man but through his music gave millions of people little moments of joy and continues to do so.
Even if your not a fan, remember that the Stones might not have been able to kick the door down so effectively without a little help from their friends who held the door slightly ajar and passed them a tune they could let rip on as well as helping them get that Decca contract and being generally encouraging.
Is this destined for the Beatles vs Stones thread ?
I hope one day there can be a Beatles and Stones thread and the World will live as one. I love 'em both and we were better off with both in my opinion.

This is the band as of today, with 16 memebers, we're not trying to make it an orchestra. Though we might trade Kurt Cobain for Chuck Berry. HM to SRV & Ginger Baker/Jack Bruce etc.

Surprised nobody mentioned Jerry Garcia, John Wetton, Otis Redding, Sam Cooke, Fats Domino, Chubby Checker, Ray Charles, Buddy Guy, Johnny Lee Hooker, Howlin' Wolf, Lloyd Price, Syd Barrett or Peter Tork yet etc.

Bo Diddley, Chubby Checker, Buddy Guy, The Isley Bros., The Temps & The Tops don't have much longer though.

HM to Carl Wilson, RIP.

You might be right about the Isley Brothers, Temptations, and the Four Tops. I think they each only have one original member left.
Bo Diddley died years ago.

The new release "Gimme Some Truth" is real interesting. Sounds very different from the original and previously "remixed/remastered" versions. Some for the better, some for the worse. The only thing I can't understand is why they didn't include Borrowed Time and Mother; that's 2 of the most important Lennon songs. Otherwise, it's it's a great release. And the songs I find the originals to be better - I just get the LPs or CDs out of the shelf.

Just like with the Kennedy assasination and Sept.11th, I will always remember the exact moment when I learned of Lennon's assasination.

Howard Cosell broke it to me and most of the US first on Monday Night Football.
"Dead on Arrival"...

Same with me, I was writing a letter to my brother at the moment I heard it. He was away at college, and the game was on, and Howard Cosell broke the news, I recall that I noted it in my letter.

The murderer, btw, just had released some statement recently how he regrets it and feels he should never be let out of prison -- sort of a reverse psychological attempt to get out (or so it seems to me), hoping the parole board commission will see this as a sign of true sorrow and acceptance of self blame.

Similar story here, I went to bed as it was a school night, my parents were watching and woke me up to tell me. I still remember Cosell saying something like "Somehow this game just doesn't seem to mean anything anymore".

Saw the American Masters LENNONYC and thoght they did a really good with it-- believe or not, even Yoko came off as being pretty sane. They did a nice job, PBS.

As far as the "NEW" Lennon release "Gimme Some Truth" goes, why why why why did they let Sean Lennon remix the thing ? I mean, if they felt they had to, how about someone with some experience and talent do it ? Did the material have to be remixed anyway ? Wasnt it released the way Lennon wanted it?

Also -- how much longer will the Lennon estate keep rehashing and re-releasing the same stuff over and over again ? Instead of going for the continual money grab, why not dig into the vaults and release the extra tracks from Double Fantasy ( producer Jack Douglas says there are some good tracks there, as well as some reworked Beatles songs ) or from Lennons other solo recordings.

Agreed about the vaults & unreleased etc. Also on a real producer, not nepotism jr.

YT has had some great JL stuff/sessions etc. in recent years. I imagine much of it is unreleased, volumes of songs worth checking out.

There is recent Sean interview in which he says he learned everything about studio effects and mixing from his mother. He also said she told him she produced the "Imagine" album (the original, not later remixes). She's the one that keeps issuing similar collections of the music.

A couple of years ago I heard that Yoko gave herself a writer credits for the song "Imagine"... and now she is saying she produced the album?

What was Phil Spector doing at those sessions? Making her tea?
