I find it amazing that I was only 6 months old when we lost an icon, completely unaware of the impact that John Lennon had on the generation before me.
I wasn’t there for Lennon in his prime, or even in his passing but that doesn’t minimize the impact he has had on my musical tastes. He impacted a lot of our musical tastes by being a tremendous influence on a great number of artists that followed him.
He was full steam ahead in everything he did and approached all challenges with the brilliance and passion with which he approached everything. That might be what people miss most about John Lennon, his passion.
He was a no holds barred person and a no holds barred musician.
“Imagine” is one of my favourite songs and today of all days, it’s fun to Imagine what could have been but to also appreciate everything that was.
