She didn't compare them beyond a simple "neither of us are satisfied with our music". She didn't call herself the new John Lennon or anything. It's like me saying I'm like Lennon because we were both born on the 9th of the month.

And I neeeeeeeeed her all the time

Wow, so does that mean that I'm John Lennon too? Could I switch it to Paul instead though, becuase he's my favorite!

So you give him a free pass because he's John Lennon? That's silly. If he was human, than he doesn't deserve a free pass. And that is not silly.

I think that everyone desirves a free pass, and it doesn't matter how bad the thing that they did was because just because someone does something really bad it doesn't make them a bad person, because no person is a bad person it's only because they tell you people who kill or do stuff like that are bad becuase they don't want you to do it, and so most people are brainwashed into believing that they're bad people.

Really though, we're all savages; some just hide it better than others, that's all.

So Gadhafi isn't bad? Mubarek, Assad, and Mussolini? No, they are bad people. They are people who used their power for killing and attacks. Should Chapman get a free pass? Should the drunk driver who killed Diana? NO! Simple as That. People who use power and popularity for evil are bad people. However, Lennon preached good. Those who preach good are not evil/bad people. But that doesn't mean Lennon is free of criticism for his walking out of a child.

I'm sorry Mr. Sun King I don't think that means love like you should love them, it's more like just not hate them. If you'd like though you can, it's okay to hate people as long as it's not yourself!a-hard-days-night-george-10

(Not that I'd have a problem with you hating yourself though, it's just not good for your selfesteem, but I'm not telling you to not hate yourself so hate all you'd like, not that I'm saying you're a real big hater though, becuase I don't think you are but if you want to be considered a big hater I'm sorry if I might have offended you. Not that I think that offended you though, becuase I don't really know what would offend you or not or something, probably)

Sorry I can't quote but a lot a great points have been brought up.
Mr.
Sun King, I totally hear what you're saying, but I really have to agree with Strawberry on this one. People are people and there is just so much negativity in this world if you choose to focus on it. We could go on and on about this guy and that guy, but why focus on all that negativity? It's overwhelming.
When John was asked by Jan Wenner why he couldn't be interviewed without Yoko, he simply responded "why should I? Our relationship is the most important thing in the world" and that's just how he felt about it. No kid or band was going to get in the way of their love, I'm not saying that's right or wrong, it just is what it is.
It's a shame what happened to Julian, it really is and I feel sorry for him, but being an absent father doesn't make John an evil guy, he just had other intentions when he got together with Yoko. I'm not giving him a free pass, but I'm also not going to think any less of him because of how much he brought to this world.

Guys,

I did the talk and it went really well. As I've said elsewhere people told me they were genuinely moved by 'Mother' and 'God' and there were some kids who told me they never knew about the whole 1969 Bed-peace protest thing which they thought was great ... so that was very satisfying.

 

but..weird ... when I was going home in the car John came on with 'Stand By Me' .... NO KIDDING!!

Trying to tell me something??
