Lennon Out Loud


Today marks the 25th anniversary of the death of John Lennon, one of the most influential rock musicians in history. Very few people have had a bigger influence on their craft than Lennon. For more background on Lennon's life and untimely death, check out the John Lennon Wikipedia entry. And check out Zaadz for some Lennon quotes.

We don't have a lot of Lennon titles on our site but for those curious in learning more about this incredible man here are a few you might be interested in listening to.

The Beatles
and The Beatles - Two biographies of the same name but by different authors. The first is the newly released and highly anticipated book by Bob Spitz. The second is an older title (originally published in 1968 and revised in 1996) by Hunter Davies published by Blackstone Audiobooks.

John - A biography of John Lennon written by his first wife Cynthia and published by Random House Audio. An unabridged version is also available.

Lennon wrote an array of amazing and innovative songs and his "Imagine" has always been on my short list of favorites:

Imagine no possessions I wonder if you can No need for greed or hunger A brotherhood of man Imagine all the people Sharing all the world

You may say that I'm a dreamer
But I'm not the only one
I hope someday you'll join us
And the world will live as one

I can't think of many messages that the world needs more right now than that.

Rest in Peace John.
