Love is All You Need

…when my friend Porter awoke me in the middle of the night to tell me that John Lennon had been shot and killed. I couldn’t believe - I thought it had to be some kind of hoax. I still can’t believe it in a way, but I did get over it - in the incomplete way that you get over something that’s hard to comprehend.

If it wasn’t for John, I wouldn’t have ever learned to play the guitar, I would have never joined a rock ‘n’ band, and I certainly wouldn’t still be slugging it out on the downtown streets, pubs - trying to sing my heart (and turn people on).

If you get a chance today, think about John (for me). I hope his music touched or enriched your life like it did mine.

Have a good holiday & new year!
