Welcome home dad. I know it's going to be a long road to recovery, but you're strong & we'll all be right there with you. Played your favorite..."In My Life" as you were wheeled in & it was go

“When I was 5 years old, my mother always told me that happiness was the key to life. When I went to school, they asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up. I wrote down ‘happy’. They told me I didn

“There are two basic motivating forces: fear and love. When we are afraid, we pull back from life. When we are in love, we open to all that life has to offer with passion, excitement, and acceptance. We need to learn to love ourselves first, in all our glory and our imperfections. If we cannot love ourselves, we cannot fully open to our ability to love others or our potential to create. Evolution and all hopes for a better world rest in the fearlessness and open-hearted vision of people who embrace life. “

Worth being on here as well :-

You say you'll change the constitution
Well, you know
We all want to change your head
You tell me it's the institution
Well, you know
You better free you mind instead

My brother, a musician living and working in L.A. just wrote and released a new batch of songs...One of them being this one:

 

Calling John Lennon

We’re lost in delusion

There’s ao much confusion 

We’re headed for ruin

You said it’s all in our head

 

Well Lucy was shot down

The diamonds were not found

and we’re all just stumbing round 

Feeling mislead

 

We just need a voice man

Remind us there’s choice and 

Lead us in rejoice

Just like you did from bed

 

Chorus 

Are you there, is that you

Watching out from above

We could sure you a dose of

“All You Need is Love”

Gonna raise my voice 

can you hear me

I’m calling

Calling

Calling John Lennon!

 

We love to complain now

We’re going insane now

We’ve locked down our brains

Can’t find the dream

 

We’re holding so tight now

Transfixed by the bright light now

We’re chasing the big bite

Fighting up stream

 

The last mind guerilla

Is hold up in his villa

He’s lapping vanilla from every meme

 

Chorus 

Are you there, is that you

Watching out from above

We could sure you a dose of

“All You Need is Love”

Gonna raise my voice 

can you hear me

I’m calling

Calling

Calling John Lennon!

John....John....John....

The complete 1968 Rolling Stone interview. John seemed in good spirits, at ease talking about song-writing, Bob Dylan, the cover of the "Two Virgins" album & other things. He didn't seem at all like he'd been portrayed during that time: snide, self-centered, angry, resentful. He did mention going back to listen to the early ('63-'64) Beatles albums recently and being "embarrassed" by the material on them...An interesting read.

Elliott Minz was a writer/journalist & close friend of John's. This is one of the "lost Lennon" interviews. Some interesting insights into the Beatlemania days from John...
