I'm 45 minutes into the hour show on THC.

I didnt pay any attention to him back during all his drama through the years. Totally different music, everything. I knew the guy shot him, I knew the hippies sang kumbaya with candles.

Normally I dont like unarmed people assaulted, I prefer fair fights between willing subjects when conflicts are unavoidable.

But.......John Lennon was a first class asshat, libtard kommie pinko anti American, and only when they tried to toss his druggie ass did he recant his position. Only then was America a great place to be.



Rot in Pieces you piece of shit. Let it be, let it be.

If I wet my pants and called off my love of songs, music, films and books based on the stupid personal politics of the authors, actors and musicians, I'd have nothing left to listen to but Ted Nugent, and nothing to watch but Tom Selleck movies and books about SHTF.

Not that I don't appreciate that stuff, but I'd go nuts.

Lennon was a great artist, and creampuff liberal. You can be both things, just like Hitler was a very talented painter, and slayer of 6 million Jews.

Me? I'm quite good at juggling, and I offset this talent by being really mean to old ladies, cripples and the homeless. I like the duplicity, myself.

You've got to remember that the Baby Boomers believed that it was cool to hate your government, embrace people who would kill you because of your foolish believe in cosmic love, rebel against your square parents, fuck 3 different partners in an evening, consume any substance that put you in an altered mental state, reject tradition, recant social convention, and even refuse to take a bath and shave every now and then.

John Lennon was a bard for the era and people.

There were a select few artists that made music what it is today.

The Beatles were one of them. Like it or not. They had - like Led Zeppelin later on - explosive periods of creativity, in which they absorbed many styles of music and filtered it through their incredibly talented minds and hands, and came up with music that will stand the test of time.

You may not like it that John Lenin (you like that? I came up with it just now, all on my own. ) was a pinko commie etc etc., but at least give him the credit he deserves.

Their stuff from the 60s qualifies as must-own, must-listen mandatory music IMHO. Just like when you listen to the Who's Quadrophenia, you hear all these little things that happen in the music that other, lesser bands copied and put into their music.

So do I.

Compare Adolf to such stunning talents as Jackson Pollack, and you'll see my point. Art is subjective, but the man could paint. Common talent? So any Bob Ross watcher could do what AH did? I think not. I also scoff at the idea that limiting himself to one medium disqualifies his work. Serat never did anything but poke ink and oil in little dots....so is he a hack that never got beyond pointillism?

Like his work or not (it's not my taste), there's no denying he had talent and form - and knew the craft. He WAS an artist, and no one - not even an guy on the internet with an art degree, can deny that. He was an awful human being, but he had a talent for painting....which was my point and it's a good point.

Props for mentioning Holly. You beat me to it. Holly influenced The Beatles. Had he not died, who knows what he might have produced. He was starting his own record label and taking production reins, maintaing artistic control over his material, etc. The man was a pioneer who is very underrated.

People like Holly and Chuck Berry, Johnnie Cochran, and Elvis influenced The Beatles, who in turn developed their own style and crafted their own lyrics (no Leiber / Stoller reliance for them!), who in turn influenced a myriad of other bands. I'm not saying that every artist out there owes their soul to The Beatles, but most of the artists in my collection do (them and Led Zeppelin).

I may not agree with Lennon's politics or his choice of Yoko Ono, but I respect some of the work he did before 1972--the year I think that his creativity went down the toilet.

Let me also retort, and to seriously hijack this thread for just a minute.

Niether the Beatles, NOR Elvis made music what it is today. They were only popular because of others that came before them.

Elvis? What about Johhny Burnett? Carl Perkins? Buddy Holly? And hell for that matter, Screamin Jay Hawkins? They were just as much, if not more influential to what we listen to today. Nevermind all the great garage bands of the early to mid sixties that were definetely a precursor for what was to come in many, many ways.


That being said, I've always hated John Lennon. What a pinko commie girly man................

I really didnt care who wrote it, thats your issue not mine. I used it because I thought it was a Beatles song, I knew it was a hippy song regardless of who sang it.

While you may possibly be technically correct, the song is indeed credited Lennon-McCartney.

BTW, Im sure anyone here would probably bet you money I was never a Beatles fan, and they would be right.
