What does Kitty have to say?


 


John Lennon at 72

Because John Lennon was taken from us at just the age of 40, we will never know what he would have been like as an old man.

Somebody ventured earlier this year that he would have become a Republican.

That I highly doubt. 

It's interesting to think about how his music would have evolved. Would he have gotten into electronic music? That sounds more Yoko to me. How about rap?  I think he would respect it, but probably wouldn't have veered in that direction.

I'd like to think he'd be collaborating with the likes of Jack White, stripping rock down to its rawest form. He'd probably stop by the Daily Show to share his views with Jon Stewart, or maybe joining Neil Young and Willie Nelson to help out with Farm Aid.

I don't think he'd be narrating a Time/Life informercial, or doing any cooking segments with Rachael Ray. 

Nor would he have strutted his stuff on Dancing With the Stars.

Actually, he's probably the only guy I could think of that could get me to watch that show!
Let's flash back, shall we, to John's days with the Beatles. This is one of my favorites.

Had He Survived
Hey Kitty (and everyone else)...check out this very cool "What If" interview with John: David Kamp imagines John Lennon in his 70s, alive and well on a dairy farm upstate http://vnty.fr/OQSXHP RT @StuLevitan

Sad sigh
Kitty, Your little narrative here reminded me of how many times in my life since 1980 I've asked myself this question. So much of who I am - my politics, my world view, how I look at others - has a basis in my fascination and studying of John Lennon when I was a kid. If nothing else, I'm sure he would still be that voice of reason and lash out at the injustices he may witness. He would have been a strong voice and comfort during 9/11, especially, in his beloved New York. He would have been on that stage with Paul at the Concert for New York. I think the two, along with Ringo, would have re-united many times by now, including the Concert for George in 2002. His absence leaves a gaping hole, not just in music, but in our culture and our society.

Rolling Stone Magazine got U2 to perform their new song "The Miracle (of Joey Ramone)" acoustically--and it's pretty great! Maybe we should invite them to come in and play for us in Studio M!

Kitty's night in a haunted house
Before Friday, my only experience with a haunted house, commercial or otherwise, was at the Recreation Department in Stevens Point when I was a teenager, and as I remember I was FREAKED out. So I was a little nervous when Jonathan and I were asked to...

World's Worst iPod: El DeBarge "Who's Johnny"
A lot of people seemed to have fond memories of this questionable song from 1986. "Who's Johnny" was the first solo hit for the guy named El DeBarge, and it went to number 3 on the charts. Some of you might remember it from the movie "Short...

You might want to see "Once" twice

World's Worst iPod: Stonebolt "I Will Still Love You"
It seems Kitty was all alone in the Canadian wilderness with her love for the 1978 hit "I Will Still Love You" by Stonebolt. It only made it up to #29, so it seems a lot of folks didn't have the fond memories of the song that she did. With amazing...

World's Worst iPod: Neil Diamond "Yesterday's Songs"
Even Neil Diamond fans didn't seem to want to throw their support behind this one. "Yesterday's Songs" with its cheesy backup singers may be the most cliche song the guy does! It made it up to #11 on the charts in 1981/82 and was #1 on the...
