JOHN & YOKO Giving Peace A Change In Previously Unseen Bed Footage

14 April 2021

Anti-war song GIVE PEACE A CHANGE was written by JOHN LENNON
(but credited to Lennon–McCartney) and recorded with his PLASTIC ONO
BAND
, including his wife Yoko Ono and a bunch of famous friends in
Montreal, Canada back in 1969.

Previously unseen footage has now come to the surface with John & Yoko
in the Sheraton Oceanus Hotel in the Bahamas a week before Montreal, while
on their bed-in tour, with Lennon playing a rough, at times crazy, version of
Give Peace A Chance.

Here we go…

Debut Longplayer JOHN LENNON And PLASTIC ONO BAND Released 50 Years Ago Today

11 December 2020

Band: JOHN LENNON/PLASTIC ONO BAND

Album: PLASTIC ONO BAND

Released: 11 December 1970 – 50 years ago today
Score: #8 in the UK, #6 in the US, #1 in Japan,
Canada and The Netherlands.

AllMusic / Stephen Erlewine: “It’s an unflinching document of bare-bones
despair and pain, but for all its nihilism, it is ultimately life-affirming; it is unique
not only in Lennon’s catalog, but in all of popular music. Few albums are ever as harrowing, difficult, and rewarding as John Lennon/Plastic Ono Band.”
Full review here. Score: 5/5.

John Lennon: “You’re just left with yourself all the time, whatever you do anyway.
You’ve got to get down to your own God in your own temple. It’s all down to you, mate.”

Yoko Ono: “My husband John Lennon was a very special man. A man of humble
origin, he brought light and hope to the whole world with his words and music.”

Turn Up The Volume: Lennon always was my favourite Beatle – the rocker, the big
mouth, the challenger, the dreamer, the maverick, the misfit, the open-minded musician/human – and this solo debut is his best post-Beatles work. Imperishable passionateness.”

Outstanding tracks: Mother / Working Class Hero

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.

GIVE PEACE FINALLY A CHANCE IN 2020…

Daily fuel to load your sonic batteries…

1 January 2020

2019 wasn’t a great year for humankind. It was a year in which sexism, racism, inequality, intolerance and egoism were the big winners, supported and promoted by many populist politicians who invent imaginary enemies in order to make their very own people anxious, fearful and confused, so they can profile themselves as the miraculous supermen and the great saviors of all evil and control all human minds. My greatest fear for the future is that the ongoing process of brainwashing will expand extremely and lead to even more human dramas as we already experience for some time now.

Many will laugh as I say that JOHN LENNON and his PLASTIC ONO BAND were right all the time when singing ‘GIVE PEACE A CHANCE’. All sorts of unscrupulous opportunists, greedy businessmen and corrupt politicians reject peace and solidarity because they cannot make fortunes with it, nor gain the total power that is needed to suppress a population. History showed from day one that war only causes humane destruction!

Peace is the only way to survive!
I hope it gets a chance in 2020…
