Thanks for sharing Joe - looks like a case of "She Said, She Said" (pun absolutely intended).

I got a kick out of this part...

"Lennon’s widow, Yoko Ono, has strongly promoted the documentary; and the film’s director, Michael Epstein, conceded that while she did not technically have “editorial control”, she was “there” while he made the film---which might explain what we’ve heard."

It left me thinking, "hmmmmmmmmmmm, where have I heard that before?"

To the fountain of perpetual mirth, Let it roll for all its worth.

So fricking sad. I sometimes wonder what WOULD have happened had John been deported back to England. It's not Siberia. Could he have moved back here again after Nixon left office? Meh.

Here is my Timeline if John remained in England: 1972-1975

1972: John's Latest Album, a continuation of the sound of Imagine, is released to much critical and commercial success.

Early 1973: Paul, John, George and Ringo reunite on I'm The Greatest off Ringo. This Sparks reunion fever, leading to An Argument between Paul, John and George about whether to reunite fully.

1974: Yoko splits from John, Leading To a Full Blown Reunion of the Beatles, Leading to 5 critically acclaimed and Commercial record setting albums. They Split in 1977

1980: Yoko and John reunite, and John gets shot on Dec. 8, 1980

So basically, you're saying it's inevitable, what happens to John. I like the idea of a parallel world where he is still here, and what havoc he'd be wreaking currently (probably getting into spotlight wars with Bono or something...) :)

It's just one of those moments, I'm not sure of the book by Ray Bradbury, but he mentions something called the butterfly effect, which I'm sure you know of. Like had he survived even, what would have happened? What could have happened if somehow someone knew he was going to be shot and prevented it? Would something have to be made worse because he ended up living? And then we can get into heavier stuff like was he *meant* to die?

Anyways, too many questions with no satisfying answers. Pooh.
