Default Imagine...

Today marks thirty years since one of the greatest song-writers of all time was gunned down at the entrance to The Dakota, NYC.

RIP John Winston Ono Lennon

so what? It's possible to appreciate someones music without caring or supporting their politics, I still enjoy U2's music but will change the channel if I see Bono prattling on about anything other then his music - isn't 30 yrs a bit long to be caring a grudge against anyone?

I'm not holding a grudge, I just think he was an idiot.

If we boycotted musicians & actors for their political views - there would be nearly nobody left to watch or listen to. Sadly, the entertainment industry is painfully liberal and probably always will be (exactly like our bastions of higher education). I watch their programs, listen to their music - and totally ignore their left wing ramblings...

I am going to go ahead and side with Spitty on this one. I don't think deleting the post is warranted, but the living flesh value of this person as a man and his clearly Anti American Manifesto, all the while counting stacks of American Currency, could be measured in the volume it takes to fill the inside mass of a Cherrio.

My favorite musician in the whole world, one that I've loved since I was 12 would probably be very much not liked on this forum. In fact, I may never tell who it is as it juuust might get me banned for life.

Yep, thanks for some groovy tunes. We listened to the Beatles almost daily on the 45 minute school bus ride in high school. We even listened to the White Album in government class (studying Manson court case).

Regardless of his political affiliation, or his beliefs, I think all of us would be hard pressed to find a musician we listen to that was not influenced by him.

He and the Beatles changed music. RIP Lennon.

Geez, wasn't quite expecting some of that... I sure as hell wasn't advocating what he preached, and I agree, his ideologies were downright stupid, but regardless of all that the bloke could sing; and noone deserves to be gunned down in the street outside their home.

Him and his mates changed music forever, and for that, I am thankful that he lived.
