The Final Longplayer By Immortal Working Class Hero JOHN LENNON Came Out 40 Years Ago

19 November 2020

After leaving music behind him for five years in order to be as much as possible with his son Sean, immortal rock & pop legend JOHN LENNON went back in the studio, with the love of his life Yoko Ono for what became his final longplayer.

DOUBLE FANTASY was released 40 years ago on 17 November 1980. It wasn’t his best work but so special just because it was his last gift to his countless fans all over the globe.

Only three weeks after the LP’s release the working class hero was killed cowardly by Mark Chapman. Lennon was, unquestionably, my favorite Beatle, he was the rocker. As part of the Fab Four, he changed pop, along with his twin songwriter buddy Macca. And let’s not forget he became an influential peace activist, under the influence of Yoko.

British post-punk duo DEUX FURIEUSES celebrates the immortal icon
John Lennon‘s 80th birthday (born 9 October 1940) with a riveting
cover of his plain-spoken protest song Gimme Some Truth from
1971 album Imagine.

A song that fits this loud and clear duo like a glove.

“Here is our cover of ‘Gimme Some Truth’ by John Lennon who
inspired us to play music and see through the hypocrites and the
fuckers. Happy Birthday, John, you thought tricky dicky was bad.”

I’ve had enough of reading things
By neurotic, psychotic, pig-headed politicians
All I want is the truth
Just give me some truth

Right here…

SEAN LENNON Covers ‘ISOLATION’ For His Late Genial Father’s 80th Birthday

10 October 2020

Immortal singer-songwriter genius JOHN LENNON was born in Liverpool 80 years ago,
on 9 October 1940 and his son SEAN, the only child he had with YOKO ONO (who’s 87), was born 45 years later on the same day as his dad. Happy birthday to both Lennons.

To celebrate his father’s 80th birthday Sean covered ISOLATION, one of the highlights of his world famous dad’s solo debut album titled John Lennon/Plastic Ono Band which was released almost 50 years ago, on 11 December 1970.

It’s really incredible how Sean’s voice resembles his father’s vox. They are truly family…

Happy 80 John, happy 45 Sean…
