I am here, John Lennon.
Yes, it is I. I am certainly not an icon here. I had to submit to what all spirits must endure: the consequences of my wrong choices and sins.
You are wondering if I have a special purpose in writing you today. Well, I do. And that is to provide comfort. Everything is lined up, and has been for some time, and the world will have a treat, the likes of which have never been. It will be unexpected, and the evil people, the Blue Meanies, will be unable to stop it.
That’s what I came to say. The world is ripe for a successful revolution against greed and cruelty and war. I told people to imagine such a thing. Now, it’s time to make it real.
Yes, I’m still a radical, but I have been purified.
John Winston Lennon, MBE (9 October 1940 – 8 December 1980) was an English musician and singer-songwriter who rose to worldwide fame as one of the founding members of The Beatles, one of the most commercially successful and critically acclaimed acts in the history of popular music. Along with fellow Beatle Paul McCartney, he formed one of the most successful songwriting partnerships of the 20th century.
Born and raised in Liverpool, Lennon became involved as a teenager in the skiffle craze; his first band, The Quarrymen, evolved into The Beatles in 1960. As the group disintegrated towards the end of the decade, Lennon embarked on a solo career that produced the critically acclaimed albums John Lennon/Plastic Ono Band and Imagine, and iconic songs such as “Give Peace a Chance” and “Imagine”. After his marriage to Yoko Ono in 1969, he changed his name to John Ono Lennon. Lennon disengaged himself from the music business in 1975 to devote time to his infant son Sean, but re-emerged in 1980 with a new album, Double Fantasy. He was murdered three weeks after its release. (Source: Wikipedia)
