John Lennon, Markiyan Matsekh

John Lennon made headlines on this day in 1966 for comparing The Beatles to Jesus. In fact, support for The Beatles is divided along political and generational fault lines




"My dad thought it was a stupid idea. He said, “Son, it’s a nice thought, but these people have been beaten by riot police. How is a piano going to cheer them up?” I just wanted to give people a reason to keep protesting."

Remembering John Lennon today, on the anniversary of his death.http://usat.ly/1wTUOQX

There was something in the way he moved us.
Dec. 8 marks the 34th anniversary of the night the legendary John Lennon was gunned down by Mark David Chapman outside his home in New York City.
Lennon was born on Oct. 9, 1940, in Liverpool, England. He would go on to change rock 'n' roll with The Beatles.
Brief excerpts of the former Beatles' last interview were released for a 1980 Rolling Stone cover story days after Lennon's death.


約翰·溫斯頓·藍儂MBE英語John Winston Lennon, MBE,1940年10月9日-1980年12月8日)是一名英國音樂人、歌手及作曲,以身為披頭四創團團員揚名全球。藍儂與保羅·麥卡尼的合作是20世紀最成功也是最具影響力的創作組合之一,並「創作了搖滾史上最受歡迎的歌曲」[1]

弄到這,才想到沒有將1987年的The Economist留下,損失不小。
On this day 34 years ago, John Lennon was killed outside his Manhattan apartment building. He was 40.

Where was John Lennon's funeral held? It's been exactly 30 years since John Lennon was shot to death outside his apartment building, The Dakota, in New York City. The former Beatle was returning from a recording studio with wife Yoko Ono when a deranged fan, Mark David Chapman, shot him from behind. Ono announced that there would be no funeral for Lennon. Instead, she asked that on the following Sunday fans observe 10 minutes of silent prayer in Lennon's memory. Millions of people worldwide participated in the event. The largest crowd — about 225,000 strong — gathered in New York City's Central Park to pray silently together. Later, a memorial garden named "Strawberry Fields" was established in Central Park, across the street from The Dakota. Fans gather there to remember Lennon on his birthday and the date of his death.
Quote:
"Imagine all the people Living life in peace/ You may say I'm a dreamer, But I'm not the only one/ I hope some day you'll join us, And the world will be one." John Lennon, "Imagine"

The Beatle returned the MBE he had been created in 1965 as a protest against Britain’s involvement in “the Nigeria-Biafra thing (內戰)” and its support of the US in Vietnam and against “Cold Turkey” (John Lennon單曲名) slipping down the charts.
