TELL me this isn't what Lennon would look like now.


I found an ancient MAD Magazine from 1964 in a drawer in a motel in Minnesota. It had a bunch of yux about those kooky new Beatles.

In a "where are they now?" spoof, they had Lennon killed by fans in NYC. I shit you not.

What would John be doing now? Would he be a judge on American Idol or would have have a reality show or some crap? "Life With The Lennons"? Politix maybe? "Free As A Bird" would've sounded better.

I wish he was still around but when I was 15 and he biffed it I figured one less hippy. Remind me of THAT next time I complain about kids today being idiots. I was into th' Pistols. Forgive me. We were all 15 once. I was maybe a little fifteenier.

I didn't get it until later. The little thing about th' Pistols owing him everything. Whenever the bands I loved started running out of ideas they always started sounding more and more like him. The source.


One thing I CAN tell you: he'd be fucking PISSED. GUY WOULD BE GRADE-A BULLSHIT OVER WHAT'S GOING ON NOW.

Think how great the fucking Anthology would have been. Jesus. If the CIA hadn't fucking taken Lennon out.

Yeah, it would be damn interesting to hear what he'd have to say if he was still around. He'd probably have a blog.

Shurely that's a photo of Eminem's dad?

God, I hadn't really thought of that. Lennon would be righteously pissed.

Like all those other musicians. You know, uh, that guy, uh - I'm sure there's somebody - give me a minute...

If he wasn't killed they would have killed him.
