  1. Thank you Yoko. There is not much more that can be said. No one has ever had much of a greater impact on a culture or popular music than John Lennon. This has been brought to such an even greater magnitude by the tragic and horrific circumstances surrounding his passing. I don’t think anyone from the generation that grew up with John and his music and the Beatles will ever be able to forget what exactly was happening when they heard the news…I miss him even though I never had the opportunity to meet him….He was a wonderful person…with extremely good intentions…I think…working through his own journey with all of his own individual ups and downs….Sail on Johnny… “Love Is All You Need”
