All you need is cash: John Lennon's Irish island fails to find buyer
John Lennon’s troubles must have seemed so far away on the tiny island off the west coast of Ireland in 1967 that he decided to buy it as a retirement hideaway with Yoko Ono. Dorninish Island, aka Beatle Island, is now up for sale for $384,000.http://rt.com/art-and-culture/news/beatle-dorninish-island-sale-790/
Bob Dylan and John Lennon's Weird, One-Sided Relationship
The most intriguing song on Tempest, Bob Dylan's 35th studio album, isn't the 14-minute title track about the sinking of the Titanic. It's the album's closer, "Roll on John," a tribute to John Lennon. "Shine your light, move it on," goes Dylan's refrain. "You burned so bright / Roll on, John". Whether critics are deriding the song for being "maudlin" or rhapsodizing about Dylan's "elegy for a dead friend," the relationship between the two rock icons has been taken for granted, as if the song was the inevitable result of a straight-forward friendship.http://www.theatlantic.com/entertainment/archive/2012/09/bob-dylan-and-john-lennons-weird-one-sided-relationship/262680/
