    John was murdered on my 21st birthday…The only thing that gives me any inner peace of mind is that I know Mark David Chapman will never get out of prison. If the parole board does grant him parole…they'll be signing his death warrant…(which is a-ok with me) because you don't murder the greatest Rock & Roll singer in the world….do some time in prison…get out and think it's all over with… I bet MDC doesn't live 6 weeks after getting released from prison before some John Lennon fan dishes out some good old fashioned street justice on his sorry ass. If it were up to me to pull the trigger, push the button or wire up the chair??? Mark Chapman wouldn't be with us anymore… PEACE!

  36. JETZcorp says:

    I've always wished this song could have gotten "Beatlized" like Real Love and Free as a Bird (two of my favorite songs ever). The core of it, the lyrics and Lennon's vocals, are absolutely beyond any shadow of criticism. But the rest of it just feels… The word that comes to mind is "disconcordant". To me it just begs for Ringo's drumming to bring more order. I want to hear some of that post-breakup George slide guitar wailing along with the chorus in the back half of the song. As for Paul. Well, I think Paul's solo material was a bit "normal" where John's was a bit weird. So perhaps having Paul influencing composition would have provided some solid pop sensibility to balance John's runaway creativity. I love this song, I just think that it's missing the exact things the other Boys brought to the band. It would have gone from great to untouchable.

  69. Fayez Abedaziz says:

    It's really something how John writes and composes songs!
    His use of drums in here and in Instant Karma is amazing. He makes it seem so easy.
    I immediately thought of another musical genius (that John said is doing what the Beatles would sound like, if they were still together) that is Jeff-ELO-Lynne and so, I think of Jeff's use of drums in his great songs.
    Also, in the mid-late 60's, John was one of the influences on me, with his message of peace and to stand like a man and be for peaceful solutions and non-violence. Exactly!
    So, that helped influenced me to rally against the war in Vietnam.
    And, when Paul McCartney, in one clip of John I remember from years ago, that he saw, said,
    "that's John for you…" I agree. Paul meant that in a fun, humorous way.
    Well, thank you Beatles, I don't wanna think about the 60's and music without you guys.
    Rest in heaven, brother John.
