They are both pretty hilarious. The guy who plays "Robert" is quite the showman.

Yeah. That shit is great, Luther. Thanks for the link. I shall be sending it around.

Also good to see you kicking it, Mary. I was in PDX last week but couldn't find your number and meant to get a hold of Drew, but I was meeting with a co-writer for the first time and only had one day there. Once we get out of the holiday holding pattern, let's all meet up. I met a great new friend down there and knowing what I know of you guys we'd all have a great time.

Yes, thanks Luther...I am enjoying that blog. Those guys are great!

82--sorry I missed you! Yeah, been laying low for a while. Been pretty tied up with school.

Is it weird that in the wake of all this Beatles stuff I have heard McCarntey's "Wonderful Christmastime" like four times in two days? Probably not. I think I brought it on myself...

This shit is going around. The Stranger linked to the link Mary posted. Of course much belittling occurs in comments.

I'm going to send them a link to Luther's friends' site.

Sir Paul McCartney: I'm frustrated Lennon's assassination made him a martyr
Image

Paul McCartney has admitted to being "frustrated" that the assassination of John Lennon in New York in 1980 made him a martyr and "elevated him [Lennon] to a James Dean, and beyond".

The 73-year-old musician, who formed the Beatles in 1960 with Lennon, George Harrison and Ringo Starr, said: "The Beatles split up [in 1970] and we were sort of all equal. George did his record, John did his, I did mine, Ringo did his. It was as we were during the Beatles' times. We were equal.

"When John got shot, aside from the pure horror of it, the lingering thing was, 'OK, well, now John's a martyr. A JFK.' I started to get frustrated because people started to say, 'Well, he was the Beatles.' And me, George and Ringo would go, 'Er, hang on. It's only a year ago we were all equal-ish.'"

McCartney, who released his 17th solo album in 2013, described the Beatles as "f--king good" and the product of "a very rich period" but claimed in the interview with Esquire magazine that there was "a lot of revisionism" after Lennon was shot...

Like an upper-class freak show;
You pay up to $500 to see a multi-millionaire sing and play for three hours.
OR, these shows 'cover the budget' of his 'life-style' that used to come in from royalties from record sales and radio airplay.

John Lennon, "How do You Sleep"

[Verse]
So Sgt. Pepper took you by surprise
You better see right through that mother's eyes
Those freaks was right when they said you was dead
The one mistake you made was in your head
Ah, how do you sleep?
Ah, how do you sleep at night?
You live with straights who tell you you was king
Jump when your momma tell you anything
The only thing you done was yesterday
And since you're gone you're just another day
Ah, how do you sleep?
Ah, how do you sleep at night?

[Bridge]
Ah, how do you sleep?
Ah, how do you sleep at night?

[Outro]
A pretty face may last a year or two
But pretty soon they'll see what you can do
The sound you make is muzak to my ears
You must have learned something in all those years
Ah, how do you sleep?
Ah, how do you sleep at night?

Ahhhh, the sweet sound of deep-seated jealousy, accompanied by the lyrics of whining. Another hit from McCartney.

well, after 35 years I think it's ok to voice some personal annoyance on the issue.

anyway...



now here's a open question:
consider:
Earlier that evening, Lennon had autographed a copy of Double Fantasy for Chapman.


What ever became of that autographed record? Was it destroyed? "Lost" in a police evidence room? Where is it?

One never knows....
About a month ago, someone has seen a copy of "The White Album" signed by Charles Manson up on eBay!
