There are some historical figures who deserve that label but John Lennon was not one of them.

Kelley, why do you think this?  Just curious.

How do you Lennonists defend:
His treatment of Cynthia?
His treatment of Julian?
Beating up Bob Wooler?
Bringing Yoko into the tight recording studio?
His comments on George Martin in the Rolling Stone interview?
His forcing his non-talent wife on us because of his name?

It's so strange to me how the general public opinion of John has changed so drastically since I became a fan (8 years ago).

I am posting on an internet forum, therefore my opinion is fact.

And what about that time he bulldozed the great Allen Klein on the Beatles and mocked LInda McCartney's dad by calling him Epstein?

Kelley, why do you think this?  Just curious.

I just don't think that very many people, including John Lennon are all bad. I've done an awful lot of thinking on the subject of John and come to a lot of conclusions which I won't bore everyone with. Suffice it to say that I don't like everything about him but what I do like, his music and his wit (when he wasn't using it as a weapon), I really enjoy.

Great answer and I actually feel the same way. Yeah, i'm tough on John around here, but I realize he wasnt a terrible person all the time and he did do some good things. Its just that I cant stand when people think of him as some messiah or saint. He wasnt. None of them were. Nobody is.

He was just a guy who played a guitar and wrote some good music. There's better people in the world than him.

For what it's worth, I'm trying to get my Facebook friend Tony Bramwell to talk about Seaman's book and I got him to reply last night. Bramwell was a boyhood friend of John, Paul and George's and worked his way up as part of the Beatles inner circle and into Apple...He wrote the great biography, "Magical Mystery Tours."

Tony my friend...I'm having a hard time selling my other Beatle friends on what a good book Seamann's "The Final Days of John Lennon" was...what should I tell them?

Tell them it's the truth! xxxx

such innappropriate nonsense, theatre of the absurd.  >:( it's called expansive sense of self, as far as childhood fantasies, it is a good thing.

i think we all know by now is that john was john, he never tried to hide anything, including his peace activism. but the fantastic, lukewarm moralizations expressed here, as well as the paperthin generalizations are a bit off the beaten track  :P and open to controversy.

but more to the point yoko was not a no talent wife.
she was a performance artist and a recognized leader in the fluxus movement. YES YOKO ONO i found out.
