Band's thoughts on Lennon

Draven87 thoughts: 
 
The beatles Inspired Ozzy... That's what got me into them at first... At first, I thought they were a pussy band and hated them beyond redemption... But then I heard "Yesterday" and instantly changed my mind about them... I loved their music after that... I started gettin' the subliminal messages in stuff like "Let it be" and "Hey Jude"... I figured out that John Lennon was like me on some levels...
     Well, This is about all i can say at the moment... Anarchy can describe this man to a tee so i'll let him take it over... look at his comments... thanks for listening...or reading...or whatever
 
Rest in peace Lennon...
 
 

Silent Mikes Thoughts:
 
John Lennon... wow... what to say? He was a great inspiration no matter how you dice it. He inspired many many many people. In fact, John said it best, The Beatles were bigger than Jesus. John Lennon was a great man who said a lot of smart things. He was wise beyond his years. John is quoted saying "Christianity will go, It will vanish and shrink. I needn't argue about that; I'm right and I will be proved right. We're more popular than Jesus now. I don't know which will go first -- rock 'n' roll or Christianity. Jesus was all right, but his disciples were thick and ordinary. It's them twisting it that ruins it for me." Personally, I think Jesus will go a hell of a lot sooner than rock and roll.
     Lennon was a master of disguise. You listen to their music and it is often happy and common, but you have to really pay attention. They hid meanings in their songs. For example "Let it Be" and "Yesterday" sound cheery in the music, but a close listen to them shows a depressing undertone. "The fool on the hill" Seemed nice but at a second look it is actually about an outcast. Lennon was a genius. Listen to "Imagine", his most famed song. It is actually about the world as a peaceful anarchy. No fighting or killing... but also no countries or religion or control. That's why I love that song so much. And Paul McCartney and John Lennon were once asked about this. A radio host told them that people said there song 'Day Tripper' was about prostitute and their song 'Norwegian Wood' was about a lesbian and asked them about their intent to which McCartney simply said "We were just trying to write songs about prostitutes and lesbians, that's all.".
 That's what I loved about Lennon, he had a dark side that was greatly concealed. The Beatles fooled Millions.
 
 I don't know how to end this but I've been told that quotes always work well so here goes one.
 
  "Imagine..."
 

 

Deadly Freds Thoughts:
 
I did not really begin listening to Lennon and the Beatles until recently. I had listened to them before, but never really found any songs I cared for that much. But recently my music teacher got my listening to some of there material because he wanted us to play it. I finally found material that I like. He had a great voice on him and everything.
