Hi Denied....

I quite agree with you.... Lennon was a genius. Having grown up in that era... in fact I remember my Dad driving me to Junior High School (Middle School) and hearing the Beatles "I Want To Hold Your Hand" on the radio. I was HOOKED. The Beatles were my inspiration to learn how to play guitar and, eventually, start my own rock band. I am sure that they influenced thousands of new musicians and bands. If you remember back to these times, the 60's and 70's, when the Beatles were hugely popular, there was no question that they had a tremendous influence on the youth of America and other countries as well. John Lennon, to me, was a huge inspiration on the PEACE MOVEMENT and, by all historical accounts, was a LEADER in this worldwide effort. It doesn't take too much to accept the possibility, that because of his tremendous IMPACT on society that John had ..... that there could very easily be THOSE IN THE GOVERNMENT that thought he was a huge threat to what their AGENDA was. As I have said numerous times before in posts..... WINNING WARS is NOT PROFITABLE....... making them LAST FOREVER..... IS! And....... GUESS who PROFITS the MOST?

Thanks for dropping by "Che Rabbit".

There is no "todays" Lennon.
Which is a shame, because we really need one.

Thanks for the heads up, this looks like an interesting documentary.

When the secret government makes a music star their business you know something ain't quite right. Free spirited people scare the crap out of them, they don't want people believing that peace and love are actually good things to think about and promote.
Fear and ignorance are so much better, for the politics and the economy.

I knew as i typed those words, that there is no current Lennon, he could of run for presidency and won im sure.
He spoke sense and wisdom, and people listened, which was more worrying for the government, take Martyn Luther King, take Kennedy, all good people, murdered.

I believe power to the people is suppressed, and relabelled as Democracy, which has become a farce.

We do need someone like Lennon again.

Yes..... isn't it a shame...... that GOVERNMENT AGENDAS and SECRET COVERT OPS lend a hand in trying to guide what people feel and believe. John Lennon believed in humanity..... he believed in the goodness of the world and all of its children. He made no bones about it. I have never believed, just like Kennedy, that there was JUST ONE NUT that was involved.

Just my opinion.

Tom Snyder.... GREATNESS! I remember seeing this LIVE as I was a huge Late Night Tom Snyder Fan. I had forgotten all about this. THANK YOU for bringing it here for ALL of the ATS Members to see. It really ADDS to the mystique of everything on the documentary.

I just finished watching it, what a good interview.
John come across as such a down to earth guy, talked about how he had that dope planted, by some wanna be cop hero who later ended up in jail anyway.


And he talks about his immigration problems at the time.

Its funny, because he is asked if he can say go to a restaurant, cinema etc, and john replied, he could now, as most people did not bother him, saying he only had to sign a few autographs, which kinda made me feel a bit sad, as thats what Mark Chapman wanted, and more.......
He was an everyday guy at the forefront of a revolution, something that needs restarting i say.

Power to the people.

I can't wait to get my computer back and running again so I can watch that trailer and video interview. I agree with everything you guys have said and can't wait to see the movie!

And if there was a John Lennon today, he'd be dead, too... Bono may be the closest thing (still, far removed), but sometimes I suspect he's in cahoots to a certain degree with the 'establishment' and that really turns me off.

I doubt there will ever be another Lennon.

John was considered a powerful threat to the business of war.

When he spoke people listened.

He dared to think outside the box and inspired many to question authority.

Many including myself considered his role in history as important as Gandhi.

big fan of lennon, great musician, great speaker, he wrote some astounding songs, but he was a flawed person too like us all he was no saint and didn't pretend to be, he is a proper working class hero and influenced me to pick up a guitar and i was only born the year he died, but we are from the same city so its an added admiration

What could I possibly say about John Lennon that hasn't already been said numerous times and, I might add, more eloquently? Frankly, words fail me. I simply cannot express in words the impact that John Lennon made on me personally.

John Lennon, George Harrison, Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr -- the Beatles -- came onto the music scene and into my young consciousness and understanding of the world at about the same time. For the first time, I started hearing music that had meaning and relevance in my life. Until that point, I had the mindless pap of the Beach Boys, Herman's Hermits', Dave Clark 5 and the like running through my head. I was hearing but not really listening. There wasn't a reason to really listen.

John Lennon (with Paul McCartney) made me listen and to understand and question the bigger world around me. John's influence, especially, made me question what I had always simply accepted blindly. He helped me change my paradigm to "imagine" the world in different ways. Lennon made me dare to believe that the world could be better instead of accepting the status quo.

After Lennon, my life took a route that was most definitely not the one that my parents had hoped for. Nevertheless, it was a path that I had wanted to take. I wanted to know, to experience, to understand, to grow as a human being and as a man. I don't think i that ended up as a disappointment to my parents but, most importantly, I did not end up living a life that was a disappointment to myself.

John Lennon had a big impact on my life, even though I am only 24 at the moment. People in high school would ask me why I didn't care for the "current music," and it was almost a joke to me.

I have long believed that I was truly born in the wrong time. What I wouldn't give to have lived during The Beatles, the hippie movement, the age of free love. I feel almost ashamed of the popular music today. That it is a reflection upon myself, which is not. That the world (or the US) could go through the 60's and 70's, and end up back to a demented version of the 50's.

Funny that I find this thread at the exact time that "Nowhere Man" comes on...

There are some interesting clues to an important concept. Look at the Blue Meanies in the movie "The Yellow Submarine." Then think, why were the Beatles so good at music? It seems to me that there are "mediocre beams," or some such thing surrounding our social structure.

The Beatles seemed to turn off those "mediocre beams," for lack of a better term. Watch the movie "Let it Be," and notice how they do it, how they sound like a garage band for a little while as they create something, then they turn into The Beatles.

Why are way too many musicians fighting their own tendency to mediocrity? Think about it if you are a musician, it takes hours and hours of practice to get started, then some distraction sinks your idea. Oh the Beatles were not just about "focus," or "concentration." Look at their songs "I'm Only Sleeping," for a clue to overcoming mediocrity and living the dream. All those sleepless nights playing in a dive in Hamburg seem to indicate another level of consciousness fulfilling human excellence. You become relaxed, and pay attention, then you create genius work.

It is probable that government even broadcasts signals to dumb people down, and to ruin good music. It only allows a small number of people to "get good." Apparently undoing the "blue meanies," and their mediocrity of regimented idiocy, was what John Lennon wanted to do. The media was not necessarily music, but it was doing the same things that made his music pleasing and well done, and to apply it to a public warning about war. War is probably the largest induced mediocrity in world history, and that is an understatement. Nonetheless doing your best and reaching special moments appears to be a prime motivating factor to human existence and that happens mostly in the arts, but as well in the sciences.

The must be a great deal to learn here. War is an adrenalin induced illusion of achievement, cheap thrills on a massive scale, and denial as it happens. The genuine special moment is reduced to sheer survival while others die all around you.

Hey think about JFK, and his mission of peace towards the end. JFK told gobbly gook State Department people to "be clear in their language," from the beginning. Apparently they were doing their job too well, until the highly mediocre polemicist control freak LBJ took over.

Well yeah there seems to be a conspiracy of people who know of few ways other than violence or the violence of polemics to make their fortune. Keep guard, and keep vigilant.

Wow.... this is a beautiful thread. John Lennon shines on, I know it.

People have short attention spans. Just because somebody is gone doesn't mean we should forget their words.
