I am a World Class Musicain and I know a thing or two about John Lennon. First of all...Lennon was known to be against the Vietnam War as well as War
in general...but at the same time Lennon was in LOVE with New York City and the United States.
He often compared the United States to the Roman Empire and said..."The United States is like the Roman Empire and New York City is Rome itself."
In multiple interviews about this statement of which many of his statements of his Rome statement were angrily refuted by YOKO after Lennon's
death....as he said to various reporters..."Although I think Making Love is a much more worthy Human action than the Stupidity of Making War...it is
obvious as I look across the Manhatten Skyline and the beauty and power that is New York and America...that sacrifices have been made by many so that
others including myself can live in such a place as New York...the Rome of the 20th century."
He also made other statments that seemed to be in conflict with his Love at any Cost way of life that any Musician who knows a thing or two...was the
result and the actual words of YOKO coming out of his mouth. It was YOKO who was the Experimental Artist and with the help of hefty doses of
'___'...got John to do just about any crazy thing she suggested.
Paul McCarthy...who I was fortunate enough to see play with Dave Grohl and other members of Nirvana at Madison Square Garden in New York City at a
Concert to benefit those effected by Super Storm Sandy. Paul rehersed several times with Dave and the other guy's and they wrote a song called Momma
but I believe the name has been changed for the disc. Paul was OUTSTANDING and the song was about as HEAVY as it gets and after the song Dave and the
others were laughing and were saying...Paul kicks ass and how they had just thrown the song together as it was the Highlight of the night.
Paul has ALWAYS been a practical Man and had no issue writting other Heavy songs in the past such as the LIVE AND LET DIE song written for the James
Bond Movie of the same title. When Paul had written that song he was asked what John would think of it given John's known aversion to War. Paul
said..."You folks really don't know John as I do and if you did...yo would be surprised at what Johm would think."
Point is...just as most people did not know that John was very much like Paul in how he thought about what was practical application of Military Force
and what was not....YOU do NOT KNOW anything about me or what I stand for and believe as well as what I have done. When you make statements such as
the one saying...I am brainwashed or the like....you show your ignorance in a way that defines what kind of person you are...that being a person who
is quick to vilify and define or label anyone, thing or action that would be Military in Nature or in my case..."CIVILLIAN ACTIONS".
You are way out of your depth of knowledge when you attempt to guess at what I am or what I have done or what I know or believe. And you have no
knowledge whatsoever about John Lennons TRUE beliefs. YOU...only know the PROPAGANDA.
