There are musicians that touch you with their music and lyrics with a spirit that transcends the time they were written and paint with their every chord and word. Although George Harrison was probably my favourite Beatle, the haunting piano and lyrics of John Lennon’s “Imagine” still hit me like a punch to the heart. Today in 1980 Lennon was murdered, whether you believe the official story or not, is up to you. However, we lost a spirit that modern mainstream music all to often lacks as manufactured as a commodity and not a form of self expression written with passion and love. Thank you John for the music, for giving it to us all.
