my view is that whether you think John was an a**hole or not (and I think we are all capable of that) I liked the fact that he used his fame to constantly promote love & peace and not war......even his xmas song is anti war.

I never saw Elvis, Jacko or Dylan do anything comparable with their influence.

Thats wonderful and thats how John wanted everybody to see him as the promoter of peace and love, when in truth, he was a horrible human being and manipulator. I dont buy his disguise.

So Im guessing Todd that if you won my imaginary competition and the prize was dinner and an evening at the Dakota with John you would turn it down ?

At this stage in my life, yes. I dont care if you believe me or not, but its true. 10 or even 5 years ago, I would have went.

It is really clear that John got it wrong. I think what John was trying to go for was to explain the Holy Spirit, but thats not the whole picture. He never did get the whole picture.

You are the one who never gets the whole picture.

for my money that's a pretty corrupt, self-serving, insensible, awful and delusional statement to make. imagine is a powerful track with powerful lyrics and a powerful message of world peace. John Lennon was an angel, his music changed the world.

cee lo green what is there to say, his bling bling interpretation is corny and corrupt. ???

The point I was making is your replies seemed always have this authorative GTFOOH kind of tone.  As if your opinion is always the final word on a topic.

John might have been an Angel, but he could also be a theif, a bully and a selfish bas---- too.

Without spelling to much out for you, you do realize he was a womanizer, horrible father, herion junkie, drunk and an all around prick to most people he knew right?

Yeah, what a saint.
