Here's a Vanity Fair article that imagines an interview with John in 2010. I thought it was tremendously tasteful, creative and well-written and made me laugh and feel sad in equal measure.

Von Bontee I'm sure will enjoy the mention of Sonic Youth.

Thanks for that, Ben. I thought it was pretty good. Lot of outraged comments, though!

Someone said 'What were you gonna do when it's all finished,' and I said 'I don't know but it'd be good fun being a DJ.' And since then I've become a DJ, only by word of mouth, you know. SO any minute now you'll read, 'Ringo leaves to become a DJ' but it's not true. - Ringo Starr

The Beatles are a pretty contentious topic a lot of the time, there's no escaping it.

I just loved the idea of Yoko introducing John to Lee Ranaldo and them collaborating on an acclaimed noise-rock record, sounds incredibly plausible and would almost certainly be incredible- like John's Chaos And Creation In The Backyard . Not so sure I liked the idea of 1987's "Everest" though, I think the Beatles, in the face of a large-scale comeback like that, would put the traditional amount of artistic care into the cover.

Yeah, also the notion that they'd all grow simultaneous ponytails! Why wouldn't Paul/George/Ringo have their regular 1987 hairstyles? (Their 1967 moustache-simultaneity was an accident!)

Thank you for posting this. Not surprised by the vitriol, but it was really well done. "Mother put us on a macrobiotic diet, which I’ve kept to religiously, apart from the cheeseburgers and alcohol.” - LOL.

Beware of sadness. It can hit you. It can hurt you. Make you sore and what is more, that is not what you are here for. - George

Check out my fan video for Paul's song "Appreciate" at Vimeo or YouTube.

That was a good read. Pretty funny. Quite sad though
